Want a quick and efficient way to join the snail mail revolution? Then, I suggest you check out Postcrossing. You gotta send mail to receive mail!
With Postcrossing you create a member page with as much or as little details you want to give. When you are ready, you are assigned a random person from all over the world to send a quick card to. The only condition is that you assign a Code to your card. When the postcard is delivered, the recipient then logs in the code and you are sent a confirmation on how far your card traveled, how long it took to get there and any comments they may have added.
Give it a try – it’s free!
Over the past couple of months I have been participating in a revolution. Yes, I am a revolutionist…of snail mail. You know, letters. Not junk mail or bills but letters. Forget emails people, they are so 90’s. It’s all about the hand-lettered, decorative envelopes with a little letter of getting to know you enclosed. I found an awesome community of pen pals via Instagram and through the wonderful ladies at the Letter Writers Alliance.
If I had to choose one particular person who personifies the elegance of handwritten goodness, it would have to be Rin at PaperedThoughts. I am happy to say that I am going to be a part of her && A Happy New Year – A Letter Exchange Project. So excited!! Photos will posted when my recipient has received her letter. I don’t want to ruin the goodness for her!!
Keep your eyes out for my instagram photos of my incoming and outgoing snail mail
Join the revolution!
