Throughout 52 Weeks of Mail, we are asking everyone to commit to sending just ONE card or letter each week. You can send more than one, of course! 52 Weeks of Mail BEGINS on October 9th, 2011, and ends on October 7th, 2012 .
Isn't that incredible? Well, I'm committed to making cards and sending them to my family and friends.
Here is a blog that is totally and completely way out there. Did you know "If it's 13 oz or less it can be mailed. She has mailed a flip flop, a bottle of pencils, round balls, and more. Check it out. " If it's Thirteen Ounces or Less."
I'm making my cards starting now so I can get ahead for those days I'm busy or out of town. This is a CD with American Craft paper and embellishments. I glued down the embellishments with a strong glue so hopefully they will not come off. I'm going to put the address on the back along with a couple of stamps. It will be interesting if it really goes.
So Wednesday is going to become Card Day each week in walking through my crafting journey. I need to conquer this inability to make cards. This time next year I will have sent at least 52 cards not counting Christmas.
How about you? No signing up. Just commit and determine to do it. Leave a comment if you are going to give it a try. Remember not to stress yourself out. If you miss some weeks it's no biggy. Just give it a try and come walk with me.
