Ok, so I got this package in the mail…
Which, I mean, look at it…it looks like a bundle of loving excitement! But, then I opened it to find this…
Which was even more exciting. But, then, I opened that to find all of this…
And I was in postal heaven. Louise in England, you are amazing! Thanks so much!
The package also included a lovely response to a past Question of the Week: If you could have a few more hours in the day, what would you use them for?
- My craft room needs tidying up because there’s things all over the floor!
- Bleach the bathroom from ceiling to floor!
- Read some books on pregnancy — I’m 30 weeks pregnant!
- Clean & tidy the whole house ready for our little girl arriving in December =)
- Make some baby crafts
- Rest a little?!?!
- Make some envelopes. I’ve run out!
First of all, Louise, congratulations on your baby girl!! I hope everything is going beautifully for you and your family. Secondly, expect a little something in the mail soon, and more later! Your package was truly lovely and put a big smile on my face.
Also, Louise has a fantastic blog, so definitely check it out!
A friend of mine has an amazing postcard collection she shares on her website. You should probably check it out. This link will take you to a particularly fun post celebrating the official start of the USPS back in 1789!
This project is about promoting handwritten letters (which, in turn, promotes all sorts of other goodness, like kindness, connection, and cheer). So, no matter how you choose to be involved—whether you’re responding to the questions of the week, requesting a handwritten note from me, or just sending a little “hello” yourself—you’re doing just what you need to do.
This little hello to the project came from Qatar.
Hello from afar,
Came across your blog via a retweet from another fan of letters. I’m glad you take the time to do this for folks (and keep the USPS chugging along). I travel a lot so am very happy to write a postcard though at times it’s difficult to determine who would want such an item! Whenever I visit a city I seek out a post office and request 10 stamps to make it easy on the clerk, especially if we don’t speak the same language. Acquiring these Qatari stamps the 1st time around was easy but accents were so strong I didn’t try to make conversation. The stamps were of old world cup (soccer) posters — quite bland for a foreign country stamp. Upon return to make mailings I purchased more and got these unique “creatures” of Qatar. Much better, though I need to decide who will get a postcard with a stamp of an earwig. Haha.
Take care and hope this reaches you warmly…
This was such a fun and unique note to receive. I can imagine this writer traveling the world at the same time that his or her handwritten notes also travel to and fro. It makes me happy to think about the many ways the many places of this big world are brought together.
