Hello. I’d ask what you’re up to this Sunday but pretty sure it’s the same as me….under stay at home orders or quarantine or shelter in place. Yup. It’s a new world.
What are you doing to stay sane? Or hopeful? I’m painting, walking Bella, staying in touch with people, organizing the towel cupboard, throwing away spices, you know, important quarantine activities. I’m also sending a lot of snail mail because it makes me feel good, and I hope, makes the recipient feel good. And honestly, it gives me a little purpose every day. I’ve found routine has been so critical these last 15 days. I love picking just the right card, writing a little note and putting it in my mailbox for pick up. (One of the many things I’m incredibly grateful for–uninterrupted postal service! Thank you USPS!!!!!)
I want to share and spread the simply joy of letter writing and note sending during this time. I’m giving away 12 free greeting cards in every order on my website. Send a card. Even just writing “thinking about you” makes a difference. Because really, we are truly thinking about our loved ones right now. This simple gesture has such meaning. We are living in a different time so let’s go back to a different way of communicating. The old fashioned pen and paper.
And they don’t have to be my cards! I bet a lot of you have that secret stash of wonderful greeting cards we’ve been saving…I know I do!!
We’re all in this together…I’m afraid a little longer than we first thought…so let’s get creative with communication. The snail mail renaissance is here…xo
P.S. No code necessary. ALL orders will include a FREE 12 pack of assorted Carpe Diem Papers greeting cards. Each pack varies. (Only available in the US right now…sorry, Canada. I’m working on it.)
P.P.S. Fancy Envelopes also make a happy mailbox. New designs arriving this week. xo
