How to Turn a Mundane Task into a Joyful One


I started Pretty by Post 6 years ago by asking how I could make it easy for you to send cards & make deeper & more meaningful connections.

And also because I had an insatiable passion for snail mail.

I never anticipated how much it would mean to me getting to play a tiny part in how you celebrate your relationships, create authentic connections & spread more joy & happiness in the world.

Here’s How to Turn a Mundane Task into a Joyful One

I have so much gratitude & appreciation when one of you takes the time to share your story with me. Here’s an idea you might want to try from one of our subscribers (hi Woz!) who sent the scratch-a-sketch card from the July curated card collection with her rent check.

This is the power of a handwritten card.

What a fun & creative way to turn a mundane task into something special. Both as the sender but also as the recipient.

Here’s the text response from the recipient:

That was the cutest & most amazing card you sent with the rent. It’s a keeper! Thx ❤️
