Happy Mail Craftalong 2021 ~ Monthly themes and Birthdays too!

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 @Homerof2

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:

All the cards are so great! I’m loving your juxtapositions of found text and images @megwell - perfect! :smile: @Ewulotta that globe design is lovely! @Immaculata, the cross stitch is spectacular!

All the mail, handmade or purchased, is so pretty and cheerful, :rainbow: you all make checking in on this thread a highlight of my morning coffee time!

I’ve got a few envelopes to get in the mail today :snail: :love_letter:

I received a card and goodies today from England but don’t know who to thank. No return address and the signature didn’t tell me anything.

I recognize those cacti stickers!

Look at these stamps!

I am so happy to have received one of @Ewulotta’s beautiful masterboard earth cards.

@madebyBeaG sent me a belated bday card with her very cool “Love” doodle.

And a family member I wrote to replied. She’s started sewing more this past year, I’ll see if I can get her to join us here!
