Happy Mail Obsession



    I have been working on my Documented Life Project Journal (more pics later) and I would recommend you head on over and try it.  Roben-Marie Smith is one of the artists and I just think she is amazing.  There is one fun challenge a week.  Some journal sites post a prompt every day.  Well, not many of us can keep up with that...so once a week is manageable.  And we all need a weekly planner anyway, right.  
   However..... I have been distracted in the DLP group by Happy Mail (Pics above).  You see there is this list for the members of the Documented Life Project and you may sign up for Happy Mail.  Basically, if I want to participate, I just pick a person off the list in no particular order and send them Happy Mail.  You can see, above, my Happy envelopes.  I painted, sprayed, stamped etc. plain white envelopes.   The bright, happy envelopes in ones mailbox is their first clue.  And you can fill it up with whatever goodies you choose.  I have included some of the Art postcards from my Etsy shop as well as vintage papers, other painted papers, journaling cards etc.  If you sign up, you kind of are agreeing that if you receive Happy Mail, you will reciprocate.  I have sent out six, including a swap with a woman in New Zealand.  I have the above ready to go.  So fun.  And the best part is that there is no pressure. You just get creative and know that its just a fun surprise.  
  So get out all those colored pencils and markers, paints and stamps and stickers and send someone a piece of Happy Mail.  It will not just make their day, but yours as well. 

"But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful." Psalm 68:3
