I was spoiled with more happy mail last week. These three came all at once
A lovely card from @Amfkinney

This adorable bird card from @Cindy

And a cute frog card from @AIMR (I can’t wait to see those pictures :wink:)

And today arrived this amazing cross-stitch card from @Immaculata - I told her that I want to learn cross-stitching and she made me this as an encouragement

Thank you all!

Hi Everyone! I received two pieces of Happy Mail. A beautiful card with some cool stamps from @magpie and a very cool postcard with a pressed flower (my favorite by the way) from @susieoregon.
Thanks so much, it is just simply amazing what a fun piece of mail can do to lift your spirits.

Absolutely this. I now get excited when the postie comes, although there is still disappointment in what is sometimes delivered!!! But, that makes it even more of a surprise, I’m usually in a meeting when the post arrives so have to wait to go and collect it!! (Unless I’m being rude!! and that’s only with long term colleagues who know me well)

I’m only a couple months late with this reply (I just found this craftalong), but I LOVE this idea! So fun!

I received one of @Ewulotta’s pretty cards, a fun bird and tiny stars (not pictured) from @megwell–it is fun to receive bird things(!), and another bird card and sweet note from @Magpie. Thanks for all the happy mail!

I’ve been awful about posting what I get the day of… sorrrrry!!!

Last week I got a pretty birdie from @Cindy

And a great cow card with stars from @megwell

I have finished all my May Flower cards. I ended up with two designs so I mixed them up, dealt them out, and I was surprised to find I have enough for everyone! :open_mouth: :partying_face: So today I started filling them with words so I can send them out :slight_smile: I have three almost ready to go, woo hoo!

I can add you to the “special requests” section if you like :slight_smile: That way you might receive a bit of happy without feeling pressure to send your own. You can send me your address if you trust me and I’ll share it when requested. Or anyone could contact you directly if they want to send you something :heart: Let me know if that sounds good to you :slight_smile:

And reminder for anyone and everyone :star: There is no rule or requirement that anyone has to send anything. It’s 100% up to each person how much they participate :heart: That’s what makes it happy :wink:

Ok I just marathon read through this entire thread (apologies for the million hearts!) and I need to join in! I’ve got an idea I’ve been mulling over for cards… :slight_smile:

Here’s a bit about me - I live in Chicago with my husband and our 2 cats (my fur babies). I’m a software engineer by day and structure obsessed weaver by night. I’ve been vegan for over a decade and love everything about cats and weaving. I’ve recently touched my toe into paper crafting via the Art Journal zooms and am enjoying getting to learn about and try new supplies and techniques. My favorite colors are all of them :joy:.

I got postcards! :partying_face: From @Lynx2Lancer and @susieoregon

And I got some fun extras in my Use it or Lose it package from @Bunny1kenobi so I thought I’d share those over here :wink:

I sent out five May Flower cards, they’ll be picked up tomorrow to be on their way :slight_smile:

And I just want to say: You guys are all amazing! All of you!!! If you are reading this, you are amazing :heart:
