52 Week Snail Mail Challenge For 2018

Let's do something really bold and fun for 2018 together.
When we know we are not alone in a project it makes doing it that much easier.  Don't you agree?

I was sitting here looking at my product line in my Etsy shop, MarketsofSunshine 

I wanted to add something really fun and exciting for 2018 and finally decided on something handmade and something digital that will fit perfectly with my current line of envelopes, key chains, bookmarks and cash wallets.

So, stay tuned because come January 2018 I will launch the first of a 12 month series of products to my Etsy shop.

Now, what is this 52 week snail mail challenge all about?  Glad you asked cause I am all excited about the idea.

Think back to a time in your life when you could not wait to go to the mailbox and see in among the bills and junk mail if there was an envelope with your name on it from a friend.

Didn't that moment in time make your heart leap?  You couldn't wait to see what was inside. Maybe an invitation to a party.  Or, a 'thinking of you' card.

No matter what it was it was just for you from someone who took the time to sit down and write you something special.  I have to admit when I get a card in the mail from a friend it gives me such a boost that will last for days or weeks.





There are so many beautiful papers in the craft stores today that can be turned into a one of a kind envelope.  I take card stock and turn it into the envelope wallet you see here.  I add a few touches to make it durable and reusable for years to come.

Get out your color markers and just a plain sheet of paper and get to writing a friend near or far and add some simple doodles to the top, sides and bottom.

If you are not much of an artist that's okay too.  Just pick up a pack or two of stickers at your craft store and decorate away.
Don't forget to add some to the mailing envelope too.

Now, one suggestion if you are going to use one of my pretty envelopes or one you've made yourself is be sure to put it inside a mailing envelope so it stays pretty.

Are you with me?  Do you want to show 52 friends and family that they mean more to you than a text message?  Okay then let's get started.

Rules:

1.  Send 52 friends/family a letter every week in the mail
2.  When you get a reply back in the mail from one of your friends or family members come back here and leave a comment telling us all about it.

Bonus: Join my VIP Club and get a free digital worksheet to write your list of 52 friends/family names and addresses on.
Just click the button below. (one a week)
