Snail Mail Tags...
I recently read an interesting blog by Pam entitled The Lost Art of Letter Writing. Because this is right up my alley of weekly Random Acts of Mail and my quarterly Love Notes and my annual National Letter Writing participation I just had to read more of her posts. I found this one on Snail Mail Tags to be fun. I created a Snail Mail Tag and mailed it out to someone who was willing to play along.
I kept my questions to a simple number of five (5). I didn't want to overwhelm anyone and make this a chore to complete.
And because when I find something I like I cannot stop at just one I made another to mail out to yet another willing partner.
A simple tag in a simple card. I realize in this photo I forgot to write Mail Tag on the yellow strip.
Here are my paint chips I seem to collect and use for wonderful crafty things. Mr. C about called the police to arrest me for stealing when he saw my collection. I have since pared it down to a few that I am keeping for fun things. I don't consider these stolen because we have spent about $50,000 dollars in paint and primer just for this house and out buildings alone. Mr. C only buys the best paint and never the cheap inferior brands or big box paints. I feel I have paid for these many times over! Now go ahead and get out your paint chips (What? You don't have any? How can that be!) and have some Snail Mail Tag fun for yourself. Of course you don't have to use paint chips...you can use card stock or whatever suits your creative fancy.
Next I will share the Mail Tag fun I received in the mail.
What are you busy creating? I am beginning to see lots of Easter and Spring goodies.
We have been having Spring weather and just as I suspected it is turning cold and nasty with lots of rain and snow predicted for days. Just when my daffodils are looking beautiful they will get pounded down into the mud. It happens every year. I will be grateful for more rain here and snow in the higher country. El Nino so far has not helped our drought like it was expected to do.
Enjoy your days with things that make you happy and fulfilled.
