Well, it’s almost here “letter writing month” and I’m all in so not only will friends and angels in disguise get something from me. I also participate in mail Art. Now what would that be or how does that look? Both activities are endorsed by the National Association of Letter Carriers. The deadline for the Graceful Envelope contest I am sorry to say is in just a few days. However, our Local Mail Art Project has another two weeks till it’s over and we display all our entries at a local venue. No one is denied or censored. Someone will absolutely love your letter regardless of coffee stains, and not so perfect cursive. Historically it binds families and we have a connection to the loved ones from the past. No ordinary card produced by the hundreds but something priceless from the heart. A very special surprise when it arrives at its destination.
We in Lake Worth were gifted with envelopes from around the world when we turned 100 and also received many from locals who participated.
