Happy Mail

Next round of happy mail to send

I just finished making up these three packages of happy mail to send.

They are going to Australia, England and Germany.

Each person shared what they liked and I tried to tailor the packages for them.

Natallie likes pink, flowers, sewing, and vintage. So I included more sewing related items like buttons, lace, and vintage pages referring to sewing in her pack. I also collected a few pink items including cards, washi tape, and ribbon.

Nikki likes sewing items as well but she likes blue best. She also likes old photos, nature and the ocean, so I included items to reflect this. For example, shells, animal pictures, and vintage pages with pictures of people.

Jo likes music, fonts, and flowers. I gathered lots of music paper and music pages from vintage books. I included lots of stickers with letters and papers with writing. And all my packs include flowers, so there’s plenty of those too.

Hope they like their happy mail packages.

Sending more mail

After receiving surprise mail from a fellow blogger, I was encouraged to send more mail.

So I made a little pack for the fellow blogger and one for another person I met through a different blog.

This other person helped me process some things in my life through many emails over a few years. She was an amazing listening ear with no judgement and she helped me to be okay with vulnerability. There were things I couldn’t tell people out of fear but I told her because it was easier to tell a stranger. This then led to me being able to open up with people in my life.

I’m so thankful for her and the part she’s played in my life, so I always want to stay in contact with her and we mail each other letters now (since I don’t need email to vent to her anymore).

I love using words and creativity to encourage people, and it’s so cool that I can do this even if they’re on the other side of the world.

Definitely love mail.

Anyone else love sending mail?

Sending my first happy mail

I’m so excited to be sending my first happy mail.

I discovered a Facebook group that does arty happy mail swaps and I’ve got two people to send mail to at the moment.

I had fun shopping for them as well going through my stash. I included some handmade gifts as well.

I love that I can connect with people from around the world who share my love of art and junk journaling.

Excited to see how this all unfolds.
