Who doesn't love getting mail, right? Well, it's even better to get something super amazing in the mail that the sender has put a lot of their love and soul into. It's easy to tell when somebody's taken a good deal of time with the packages and letters they send out, whether they have a lot of different craft supplies and pretty embellishments to add to their creations, or when someone's decided to get extra creative with washi tape.
More often than not, when I'm sending a letter to one of my pen pals, I'll put way more effort into writing the letter than I'll put into decorating the card and envelope the letter gets packaged in, where I tend to get lazy. But one of my New Years Resolutions is to stop being lazy and put more time and creativity into things that I drop in the mailbox for people. And I'd love for others to challenge themselves in the same way too!
Use #PrettyThings2016 on Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook to showcase your gorgeous snail mail photos, because I'd love to see them! Also if enough people join me and use the hashtag, I'll feature some of my favorites, and even a few of my own projects, right here in their own post series. I really hope that I see some super pretty snail mail photos from all of you this year :)
