Week 1 of 52

I decided that I will post at least every Sunday with some photos of the previous weeks mail and keep everyone updated on whats going on.
So as I lay here shivering in bed here are the last 3 days worth of mail (not including today because technically Sunday is the start of a new week)

Tonight as I write this there are now 85 people signed up to receive mail from me!
That’s just insane right?
I wasnt expecting to get so many people so quickly and at best hoped for 30 to start me off but having almost 3 months worth of names already gives me the motivation to do this 🙂

There are people from all over Australia who have signed up, 1 from England and 1 from the US but am more than happy to have more people from OS join in. Also have a few kidlets to write to as well as someones husband which well I wasnt expecting men to sign up (I don’t know why not but it just never occurred to me)

Of the first 3 people, 1 was someone I know, 1 was a kidlet and the 3rd signed up as a friend of a friend so I didn’t know her. With a tiny bit of Facebook hunting (I promise I am not stalking people) I managed to see who she was and hopefully write something nice to her.

Now its past my bed time so until next week…

365 Mail

I had a random idea on the way to work this morning.
Since the pen pal trial seemed to fail miserably I thought I could do this without relying on others.
Who doesn’t like getting surprise mail that isn’t a dodgy bill or junk mail.
Something small and hand written that you don’t have to reply to but let’s you know that at that moment in time someone was thinking of just you.
I have so many note cards and bits of pretty paper just going to waste in my craft room that should really be used and do what they were made to.

So what I am going to do is send/write a note or small letter to a different person for 365 days.
This means I need 365 people to write to.
Currently on the list I have about 15 so not at all enough.
I am happy to send anywhere in the world so anyone is able to send me through their details.

As I have said I am not needing any reply (other than a MSG to say you have received it)

I do need help to share this around though because I would like to have at least a months worth of people to start with.
Have just set up an email address to let people add themselves to the list.

You can contact me at 365daysmail@gmail.com

Fingers crossed I can bring some smiles to others.

January Photo-a-day Challenge

I am taking part of the January photo challenge that Telle from FatMumSlim has put forward.

Beauty…

A little visitor was waiting outside when we got home today.
There had to be something to make me smile today.

Decided I will call it Beauty. I know its not mine but we have given token names to our favourites.

What has made you smile today?
