FUN snail mail seems to be a dying art. I guess that's why getting Christmas cards in the mail each year still makes me giddy, and why even though it can be a lot to get done, I try to send cards out from us each year. Plus you get to make your guy dress up (ish) and take the cute couple picture, and he can't complain (much...)
When The Sequin Notebook announced their Holiday Card Swap I was so excited to send and receive a card from a new blogging friend! Kind of like a "pen pal"! I was paired up with Karen of Run Wright and I was so excited to read her blog and get to know her better! She sent me the CUTEST card, just look at it:
Look at the widdle people, and their scarves, and their presents, and the widdle santa hat! Squee! Ahem, ok, sorry. Seriously though, isn't it great? I love it!
And what I love the most is that I met a new friend and I am so excited to continue to read her blog in the coming year and get to know her!
Then I opened the card from the lovely ladies at The Sequin Notebook, and OMG at the pretty and the sparkles and the fun!
Head over to their blog for the link-up and to get a much better look at the card and the photo shoot! So girly and fun, now I want to do a photo shoot with my BFF!
So I think I really want to bring snail mail back (Kind of like bringing sexy back, only not). I'd really like to make one of my New Year's Resolutions to send more snail mail. Even if it's only one card a month, each to a different friend. Wouldn't it be fun to get a cute little note in the mail, just because? Or even a box of goodies or girly things, like nail polish, cute headbands, or some pretty pens? I think that would certainly brighten my day, so I'd like to be more intentional about that and make sure I am letting people know that I'm thinking about them, and that I care.
Thanks so much to the gals at The Sequin Notebook for hosting the card swap, I had so much fun participating and I can't wait for the next swap!
