Welcome to the Happy Mail Craftalong Round Two!!!
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.
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
There are no “rules” here! All participants are encouraged to share what you’re crafting/sending. Recipients are encouraged to say “thank you” but are not required to and there is no pressure to share pictures or send Happy Mail in return. It’s up to each person to play however makes them happiest Message each other to request addresses and feel free to chat away in the craftalong thread! Last year was full of personal life updates and it was great getting to know everyone through the thread and through the mail lets keep it up this year!

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. This is not a swap! Lettuce Craft and myself take no responsibility if someone fails to send or delays sending anything There are no “points” or swap credit, this is all just for fun
NEW for 2022 - I am not keeping a masterlist of addresses this year. I am also not keeping track of special requests. For special requests please share details in the thread and those interested can contact you for address details. This will keep the special requests more current. If you update your intro post, go on “pause”, etc, let me know and I’ll update the participant list as needed
