I've been feeling really rotten lately. I am just down on my luck. I try to stay away when I have nothing positive to say, but then I thought why not tell my readers how I cheer up when I am in a bad mood.
I send mail.
Knowing that I'm brightening someone else's day by adding some spunk to their mailbox always brightens my day a little bit too. Like I've said before, I believe all things handwritten are a lost art. I do what I can to keep the old-fashioned way of communicating alive. Plus, I have always believed that sending mail is good karma.
I received a custom stamp in the mail from Expressionery today. Perfect excuse! I chose the Fleur de Lis stamp because it is one of my sorority symbols and quite classic.
I also received an email from the president of my favorite paper company, Boatman Geller, suggesting that I mention their warehouse website on my blog. The Boatman Geller friends and family warehouse shop offers "overstock and retired Boatman Geller products available at fantastic low prices". I know my dear friend KappaPrep over at Monograms and Manicures has mentioned this site before as well.
Tis the season... I'm a huge fan of the holiday gift cards. You can purchase 50 gift cards and 50 envelopes for the price of $10 from one of the finest paper purveyors around. This is unheard of!
I recently sent Miss NMB over at Nina Knows Best a note on my McLaren Collection BG stationery. I sure hope she received it (and liked it)!
I would love to hear what you all do to lift your spirits when you're feeling low. And now, back to my correspondence cards! Knowing I have a bundle to take to the post office always makes me smile.
