Incoming...stationery exchange..Sunshine!

Incoming and / The Love and Kindness Project

Look what came in my mail box

OK.  I am ashamed that I had not joined before now.    For those of you that don't know what this is, it is the welcome letter from the Letter Writer's Alliance (LWA).  Look on my right side bar and you will find the button that will take you right out to their site.  It is well worth the $5.  

I just had to show off my membership.  Yep.  I'm a card-carrying member now.  So now I can walk with my head held high...instead of the shame.

The cheerful looking mailer package was from my dear friend Elaine.  She is an amazing card maker deluxe.  She also makes these whimsical beauties of envelopes from old calenders or whatever she might have handy.

This shot is so you can see that it is the pretty side of a picture calender.

Ah.....this is for ME!  Do you see all of the Austen-ish goodness on this envie?
My daughter, Lydia is a Legolas fanatic.  The sticky note says, that this envie is for her.  When I handed it to h er ,she instantly loved it and said that she could NEVER use it.

Elaine also sent me a few pictures of  a project that she has started called 
#theloveandkindnessproject.  You can follow her project on instagram.  She has a friend who has a husband with Alzheimer's.  She decided to show a bit of love and kindness by sending her a box of Sunshine!  

Sunshine Mail

Such a nice selection of goodies...and so cheerful with the nice sunny color scheme, guaranteed to bring some sunshine into any body's life.  Thanks for sharing this, Elaine.  And thank you for my beautiful envelopes.  Now, it is my turn to send some goodies to Elaine!

 And to continue our little talk on "Little Things"   ( post: Snail Mail and Little Things)...I have been noticing bursts of yellow sunshine all along our country roadsides...in nearly every ditch...around every corner.  I'm not sure  what these are...getting out my Newcomb's Wildflower Guide to identify...
And the golden rod is in it's full fury  of splendor! Such a splash of sunshine...perhaps its parting gift as we head into the shorter days of autumn.  Have you been noticing the "little things" around you?

Why not make some one's day a bit cheerier by sitting down and writing a letter?  You will find yourself enjoying it as well.

  1. Thanks for the shoutout, Pam! I wanted to let everyone know that I did not start The Love and Kindness Project. It was started by my niece and great-niece. If you would like more information about it, you can check out their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/theloveandkindnessproject
    They also have an Instagram account: http://instagram.com/theloveandkindnessproject

  2. PS: Thanks for the tip about the Letter Writing Alliance. Can't wait to join!

  3. LWA is a lot of fun - I've already met a couple new, interesting penfriends through their SASE service. Their downloads and items for purchase are fun, too.
