Week 2 of 52

Yes I know I am a day late with last weeks blog post. Yes I have been told but I guess my one and only blog fan 🙂 (thanks Janelle who was also the 1st of my 365)

This last week went by in a blur.
I also have a sick feeling that the letter box in our area hasn’t been checked which could be why some people may not have received their mail yet. This will be checked on with Aus Post tomorrow though.

Some big news on the letter writing front is that with a lot of help of many people I now have 97 people signed up to receive mail from me! Yes that’s right only 3 people off the 100 mark! Ever so slightly excited about that.

Of the 11 (not counting today yet) letters that have been sent I know that 3 have made it to their destination 🙂

I dont have a lot of mail photos this week as well there are only so many ways you can take a photo of letters without showing names or addresses.

So what else has been happening this week?
I climbed the Story Bridge here in Brisbane! Am still on a high about that as I didn’t think I would be able to let alone survive it. Now can not wait to do it again.
Will share a photo of this once they have been emailed through to me.

Today in my letter box I had my first Christmas card which in itself was exciting but it also contained a wonderful handwritten letter from my first mail recipient which made me both laugh and cry. It’s now hanging up on my bird photo hanger which I should really share with everyone at some point. Maybe next weeks blog 🙂

Right now its time for me to finish off todays letter and get some sleep.
Thanks to those who do read and enjoy my ramble of a blog.

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.
