One of the fun things that has happened this summer is lots of fun mail.
First, I was the lucky winner of a giveaway on Jonah Lisa's blog, The Toby Show. Such fun the day I went to the mailbox and opened up this clever and cute Nancy Drew Wallet from A Spoonful of Chocolate Hope.
(Some of you might remember that we did a Nancy Drew birthday party when Gracie turned 7, so you know this had my name on it no matter what you might say about that random number generator!)
Then there was the fabric postcard swap called Hot Fun in the Summertime on the Stashbusters Yahoo Group.
This is the one I received from Sandy:
On the back she wrote, "A life without love is like a year without summer." -Swedish Proverb
I thought that was such a clever idea that I put a quote on the back of the one I sent to Vicky:
It said, "There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart." - Celia Thaxter
How fun are these? My favorite tutorial on how to make them is by Deb at Red Shoe Ramblings.
Of course, I also got lots of birthday cards, and the understated but not to be underestimated postcard from my doctor stating that all was well at my last visit. Wahoo!
All this reminded me of how much I love to go to the mailbox and find something besides junk mail. It makes me want to go crazy and write letters or send care packages. But I'll probably get over it. Carpools and laundry...you know.
What's in your mail these days?
