Pinterest Project: Snail Mail Pt 1

Living in the 21st century, most of the physical mail I get is either bills or junk mail.  It always brightens my day when I get a note or letter or card in the mail instead of the usual “you owe us money” and “buy our random useless thing!”  Unfortunately, those little pick-me-ups are few and far between.  So I decided to take matters into my own hands and start sending notes to make my friends smile when they check their mail.

I have a whole board on Pinterest dedicated to ideas of how to decorate envelopes, cute stationery, how to spice up a drab letter, and other fun things to send in the mail to your friends and family.  I’m also slowly working on practicing some calligraphy (or at least practicing how to fake it).

Snail Mail Pt 1-3SMUDGEIt was really fun to write to all my friends!  I have a thing for paper and paper products – I tend to collect and almost hoard them.  I see a pretty stationary set and I buy it.  It’s nice to finally put some of my stockpile to use.  I hope everyone enjoys their notes!

I’m hoping I get some letters back.  It’d be pretty sweet to start a letter-writing campaign and get things other than bills and junk in the mail more often than on my birthday or on the holidays.

If any of you, dear readers, have any fun ways to address an envelope  or any other fun snail mail ideas, please share them in the comments below!  I’d love to hear them!

  1. When I send padded envelopes (packages of small gifts) to my young grandchildren I like to draw pictures in black marker on the outside for them to color in. Their mom takes a photo of their finished pictures and sends it to me.
