I received the most awesome thing in the mail yesterday. A while back, I'd stumbled upon a tumblr by Amber Esner, simply entitled Making Mail. Her project was simple, send her your address and she'd send you a handmade letter/card/lovely little piece. I'd all but forgotten about signing up when I see this oddly shaped letter addressed to me in the mailbox! (Yes, I still get excited about receiving any mail. ANY mail. I am a child.) Inside was a little note & handmade items...and it totally MADE MY DAY. I'd been having the worst day dealing with the loss of our oldest lab, Sugar this weekend, so the package was extra-specially-uplifting. Thank you Amber for bringing a little bit of sunshine into my day!
I can't wait to create something to send back, hey, maybe I'll have a new pen pal! (I love pen pals. I wish people still did it.) If you'd like to receive a hand-written dose of wonderful-ness, check out Amber's blog & sign up! While you're there, check out her archives, she's made SO many lovely pieces of mail. xoxo Fearsy
