Here’s my 2022 intro
I love getting Happy Mail! But I have much less time to devote to it at the moment… This year I’m going to give myself more permission to slack off and not share pictures of everything I receive. I will most likely send my thanks to each sender via a snail mail reply. Feel free to check in with me if you want to know about something you sent but I want to give myself more time off from the pressure of keeping track of everything. Right now I keep Happy Mail in a stack and as I reply to each piece I will organize them into my collection
I love receiving ephemera, ATCs, a note about your life, pen-pal letters, etc. I collect skunks (except Pepe Le Pew, not a fan of the stalker vibe… lol), Moomin and/or Finland stuff, jellyfish art, postage stamps (for use in crafting), and random other stuff.
Some random “about me” things:
- For Christmas we got three adorable pet rats I used the excuse that they are for our kid but they are totally mine I’m head over heals for them already!
- My social life has picked up recently and I’m in a small crafty group and a book club
- My husband works nights and we have a rambunctious little one… I’m a stay at home mom so even though I’m home a lot I have limited free time
- I will freely offer my kiddo’s age and name in snail mail or private messages but I’m very cautious about sharing personal details in public areas of the internet He’s at an age where gender stereotypes don’t affect him. He loves baking, crafting, science, etc. His favorite colors are pink and yellow. He loves dancing, running, jumping, and general chaos He’s the center of my world so expect to read all about him in my letters
I might be slower to respond in some months but I promise that I adore anything and everything I receive!
