Hi All!

On September 19th my lovely Grandma Audrey will celebrate her 83rd birthday. She's had a rough couple of years, so every birthday is a milestone for her.

I recently told her about my adventures with Swap-Bot & Postcrossing and she just loved the whole idea of it, but it made me realize that she probably hasn't received a piece of Happy Mail in ages. So, would you like to help me give her a special birthday treat this year?


You will send 2 flat items (postcard, note card, greeting card, etc). One to your partner and One to Audrey.

Anything goes as long as it is happy and warm. Share something you'd like to receive. Be as chatty or as brief as you'd like, just be sure to send along a sweet sentiment to your recipients!

In return, I will spend an afternoon with Audrey replying to all of the senders. (This will be a great activity for her because her days are pretty monotonous, and it will be nice to have her put pen to paper again. She used to be such crafty, creative woman!)

Note: We will likely be replying by Greeting Card since I'm not sure she'll have the energy to write full letters. <3

Audrey's mail can be sent to:

Audrey Cain

c/o Christina A.

15981 Yarnell St.

Box #231

Sylmar, California

91342 USA

2 Items = 1 to your Assigned Partner, 1 to Grandma Audrey

Please be sure to include your return address on the piece of mail sent to us, so we can write you back!

Just a note: My Grandma gets a kick of out sassy or saucy things, so send anything! She's bound to adore it all!

Thank you SO MUCH for considering joining this swap!

My pleasure as a September birthday girl who is gaining rapidly towards Audrey's age.

I freaking LOVE this! This caught my eye since my name is also audrey! I can't wait to do this swap. Going to go hunt for some sassy stuff now!

Oh my gosh! I love this idea!!! I can't wait to get started!!! Is there anything we should avoid writing to Audrey? Can we send a packaged tea bag with our love letter?! Hee! So excited to meet her. :)

Bizzitybam 08/31/2013 #

@Sarahd55 and @Audball55 Thank you so much! This is going to be so much fun for her!

@ladydy5 and a happy almost birthday to you!!!

@hachiko Thank you so much! She used to LOVE tea, but has slowed down with it. She cannot have green tea, but perhaps she'd like something decaf!
I don't really think you need to avoid anything, but just an FYI, she has survived both of her husbands so she is alone in that regard and she does not get out of her house often (her choice).
Anything nice and kind will be lovely! Thank you so much for inquiring and wanting to join!

I can't join the swap right now, but I would love to send your grandma a card! May I do that?

Christina- I've dropped from the swap because I have a lot of swaps ending around this time. However, I've posted a birthday card for your grandma to you. Love the photo btw. Hope she has a fabulous birthday :)

Bizzitybam 09/ 1/2013 #

@moonlightlaura Yes! absolutely if that's okay with you, it's okay with me! THANK YOU for wanting to!

@Snailmailer1 That's so wonderful! Thank you very much and you'll be hearing back from us!
