5/1/2020 - US mail has hiccups. Regular mail, from my personal experience has been hit or miss. I sent appropriate postage letters and cards to ppl and they have
NEVER received them or
Postage due stamped on it for standard ltrs & cards
I have also rec'd standard cards stamped postage due but I did not have to pay postage??
I'm sure it's all having to do w/COVID-19, so if you are still waiting or had any of the problems I mentioned, contact me please. So far, it's been mostly my family members who have not received anything....
I give hearts - why? Because in a world full of people judging, criticizing, thumbs up/down, like/disliking everything, if someone took the time out of their day to email, type, send a letter, walk to the mailbox, buy a stamp, make a card, etc... just to brighten my day, then I am grateful because nobody has to do anything they don't want to do.
So thanks in advance for giving of YOUR TIME, spending YOUR money to mail me your special creations. You didn't have to share so that speaks volumes of your character - in my humble opinion.
I started watching YouTube videos for recycled craft upcycles & ideas and learned about craft swaps...which led to this website.
