Happy Mail Monday vol. 18

Hi, friend!ย  Happy Monday! How are you? ๐Ÿ’›

Is your week off to a good start?ย  Did you have a good weekend?

I had so much fun this past weekend at Victoria Marie‘s virtual crop.ย  It was the most wonderful creative catalyst for me and I made some 12×12 layouts for the first time in ages!ย  I’ve been making so many cards lately, I can’t remember the last time I made a full-page layout or worked on my favorite scrapbooking projects: Project Life, Week in the Life, and December Daily (I still have a few albums and countless spreads to finish!ย  Which is totally okay โ€” years ago, I was in a constant panic to stay current with each project, but that left me so burnt out.ย  So, nowadays, I work on it whenever I can, as long as I can, and it’s much more enjoyable! ๐Ÿ˜Š).

I ran some errands this morning โ€” the library, Costco, and (most importantly ๐Ÿ˜‰) the post office, and I mailed out quite a few cards to friends.ย  I seriously LOVE making them โ€” so, if you’d like a few for free, please know you can DM me @happymailmonday on Instagram and let me know where I can send them.

It had been a few weeks since I’d sent cards to friends and family โ€” and I’d missed the catharsis of writing.ย  I love writing cards so much โ€” and I always love getting a text or call from a loved one, telling me, “I got your card!” and how much it brightened their day.ย  Because, seriously โ€” how often do we get mail that isn’t 1) junk or 2) a bill?ย  HARDLY EVER!ย  Ugh.ย  The mail should be more joyous!ย  Right?

I loved participating in the Positivity Passport challenge throughout the month of July and a few of my entries included receiving something fun in the mail.ย  So, seriously โ€” do not doubt the power of happy mail (especially right now)!

I hope this inspires you to send some words of encouragement and love this week!ย  And remember โ€” if you want a few cute, handmade cards for FREE, just DM me on Instagram!

Have a good week!ย  Stay safe and be well. ๐Ÿ’›
