Who loves happy mail? Sending, receiving, plotting, etc
Happy Mail is any mail sent/received with the sole purpose of making someone happy For this craftalong we’ll focus on crafted happy mail. Some crafty happy mail might be a handmade postcard, decorated envelope, handmade card or stationery, small crafted gift, etc.
Each month we will have a theme to inspire us and I’ll keep track of Birthdays also. Please note that the theme is just for fun if you want to try, but if you’re not feeling inspired or you want to do your own thing that’s A-Okay too!
If you have a birthday in the month we’re in or the next month you can post in the thread or send me a message.
Share your address with me if you like and I’ll share it with anyone that wants to send you a surprise Happy Mail / Birthday Wish! (If you trust me to share your address please make it abundantly clear in a private message. Say something like “I give you permission to share my address with anyone that requests it for the Happy Mail craftalong”.) Or you can ask people to contact you directly
When you first join the craftalong please consider sharing something about yourself and the kind of happy mail you enjoy sending/receiving I’ll try to keep the Happy Mailers & Birthday lists current. Please message me if I need to change anything

The fine print (bolded for your attention): We are all friends here! If you ever feel that you are not receiving your “fair share” of happy mail you might be in the wrong place All happy mail is given freely without the expectation of mail being sent in return. Ask each other for addresses, feel free to say “no”, and you share them at your own risk.
