Mail 101

I'm here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

I send on time and rate the same day swaps are picked up from the post office. As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.

Comment: I LOVE the adorable deer on the front of the card. Surprisingly we haven't had a lot of snow yet. We have had some small dustings but it hasn't lasted. Although this week they are calling for 8" of snow. I'm looking forward to it! Happy Holidays!

Comment: Hi Donna! I love the Christmas card you chose, and you really spoiled me with your enclosures!! Love the stickers and washi (are those stickers from Rifle?), the stamps are adorable. Your packet made me very, very happy. Thank you for that! Such a fun swap!
Response: You're so welcome, Tami. I'd have to see the stickers again to know whether they're Rifle Co. They're such a pretty design, though. Happy swapping and thanks for the heart! 💗

Thank you for the December WW! I was having a bad day, so I was excited to find shower steamers in my mailbox. They smell fabulous and I can't wait to use them. Thank you for sending such a special gift.
