Happiness Is a Letter in Your Mailbox

There’s not going to be a crafty DIY for this post or a whole lot of chit chat! You know what you need to do. How many letters have you written so far for the #sendcardsspreadlove challenge?

What about me??? A big fat zero! So this post is a reminder for me first and a little nudge to you second. 😉💕

Snail Mail

As a thank you for not leaving scathing remarks in the comment section (not that you ever would), I made you three, sweet snail mail graphics! Yay! ❤

They are yours to do with as you please. You can use them on your own blog or social media platform or even print and frame them . . . maybe send as a gift to that special snail mail recipient?!

So go find a cozy spot, grab your tea and get inspired to write a lovely, long awaited missive.  And patiently await the love that will find its way back to you, tenfold.
