Real mail. Way back in the dark ages before e-mail, I used to get wonderful letters and cards from family and friends. I prided myself on how well I kept in touch with everyone, even as far back as friends from elementary school. But now I can't remember the last time I received anything other than a bill or junk mail in my mailbox. Other than an occasional birthday or thank you card, I have stopped writing to people I know other than in e-mail. Consequently, the people without e-mail do not hear from me. Isn’t that sad?
So, I have vowed to do better in the future. And for me, getting the letter labeled with postage is a chore. I created this little box to store mailing labels, notecards and stamps for some of my favorite family members. Now I have no excuse and at least once a month, I’ll be sending them real mail. And maybe I will get some back!
For the scrappers, the box is from Target and the paper and rub-ons are Janna's line from Junkitz.
