Mailing Love

Do you remember the good old days. . . 
Before internet 
and texting
and facebook
and skype
and . . . an . . .


Everyday when it got close to the time for the mail to come
I would keep an eye out for mailman
always watching, hoping, waiting
for envelopes or packages with my name on it.

Those were the good old days.



I am loving my words for this year.
Encourage.
Dreams.

It's been fun finding ways to practice this.
Letters created from white cards and little colored paper pieces
Packages sent to friends.
Little messages on facebook to brighten a friend's day.
Words to build up people around me.

Oh and yes.
I also have discovered how fun it is to sew on 
brown paper 
with pink thread.

You will find all the brown paper 
in our house sewed into a heap.
Can I come find to your house and use yours?!

  6. I love this! Hand written letters and packages in the mail have such an excitement factor that you just can't get from email. :)

  10. Love the pink etching around the corners :) And snail mail is the best - it's so much more exciting than just an email or text message!

  13. AH I have been sewing craft paper with yellow thread over here! I love it! Yesterday I got my hand on kraft paper notecards & sewed a few lines onto them too. It's a scary day when you realize you can sew just about anything :)

  14. How I wish I got more mail rather then spam email!

  15. I remember. I've always wanted a pen-pal just so I can write and receive mail. The pen-pals I got either didn't write back, receive the letter, or stopped writing after awhile. It would be great to start pen-paling again. If I did, I think I will have to sew some brown paper envelopes!
