  1. Those are such gorgeous bits and pieces… and the composition!

    I never really included anything before, but I love this idea. I am thinking of seasonal petals, magazine headlines, even handlettering my own stickers : )

    Looking forward to the challenge. I will finally put my procrastination aside and send those cards in April! If not before then…


    P.S. I don’t think Starbucks gift card would work in Istanbul, Turkey, I just wanted to write to you guys : )

    • Hi Ezgi!

      Thank you so much for all the sweet comments! I’m so happy you were inspired! You certainly made my day! 🤗💕💕

      Oh, and I appreciate the heads up regarding Starbucks! Oops. I figure out something better for next time! ❤

  2. Hi, Nancy and Danielle!

    These look like lovely items to brighten someone’s day. I appreciate the ideas since I just recently started including little bits and pieces in my snail mail.

    One thing that I just started sending out is my first “zine.” If you haven’t seen them, they are mini 8 page booklets that can be made from a single 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, photocopied, and folded. Just search “zine” on YouTube. I made mine using little drawings I have made accompanied by quotes. There are endless possibilities, and it is something that really reflects the personality of the sender.

    Looking forward to the challenge!

    • Hi Jannie! Ohhh will you share a pic of you zine in the FB group or if you don’t want to share there will you email me a pic? I made one a long long time ago & I love zines. So glad you’re joining the challenge again. xo

    • Hi Janine!

      Ezines!!! I have a bestie, Dana, who is making these for a sweet biz she’s starting up called “The Happy Project” I featured her in my Instagram a few days ago @everydaynaseeha or you can check her out @dapoppins They look so fun to make! 🤗💕

  3. I love including tea bags in Happy Mail that I send. Also stamped images for the recipients to color. A handmade bookmark is fun. I think including anything extra makes it special!
