Confetti Courier

mainslider_img_1Oh, how I love a beautiful card via snail mail. They arrive rarely these days (but, I love when then do…hint, hint ). So, here’s a great way to have some beautiful cards on hand. The Confetti Courier is a new stationery subscription service from 9th Letter Press – whose standout cards you’ll find at places like Anthropologie, Terrian and Swoozie.

5 cards, delivered on the first Monday of each month for $14…you can stop, start or pause at any time. screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-10-11-59-pm screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-10-12-11-pm screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-10-12-48-pmAnd, it makes the perfect stocking stuffer, too! So, order one for yourself and one to give away!

An Old Fashioned Mail Swap

Screen+Shot+2015-11-30+at+10.11.24+PM

I am continually amazed at the creativity that is out there and easily accessible via Instagram! If you’re like me, there are many moments where you feel like Alice in Wonderland when she falls down the rabbit hole. You find yourself in a supercharged, colorful world that you didn’t even know existed. That’s how I felt when I stumbled onto  Peyton Anne Frank and her #ConfettiCourier mail swap.

If you love being creative and crafty and giving and receiving snazzy snail mail, then check out her growing tribe. The registration for the next swap is January 7th, so head over today. You need to have a public Instagram and be willing to send something to your match and then Instagram what you receive. It’s a new, fun twist on the mail swap.

Here’s just a peek at what some of the recipients have sent and received!Screen Shot 2016-01-05 at 9.32.30 PM
