Do you ever get mail from postal pals, and wonder how you can possibly match–let alone top–their creativity, generosity, and/or resourcefulness? Welcome to my world. I just have to resign myself to do my best. I recently sent a little something to friends in Hawaii & Tokyo, who just happen to both be Peanuts lovers.
Fortunately, cool Peanuts stickers do turn up occasionally in a drugstore, supermarket, or card shop, as these two varieties did at the same time about a week ago. Then I made a couple of envelopes; a page from a worn out Richard Scarry book went off to Hawaii…
…along with a postcard that just came into my life a day or so before. I have a bad habit of sending Hawaii-related stuff right back to Hawaii, including this Mama’s Fish House card someone at my workplace apparently didn’t want anymore.
For my Tokyo-bound packet, I fashioned an envelope out of a photo from last year’s Save the Manatee Club calendar. This is at least the 3rd year I’ve been making sure to have one of these calendars hanging in my kitchen–and for all I know, they keep publishing the same shots every year!
A note on a Snoopy card–because no one at work dumped off any postcards for Tokyo restaurants.
Here are the backs of the envelopes, complete with washi tape & on one, a sticker. The sticker came from the Marine Mammal Center (a wonderful California organization for which a family member has volunteered; to which I occasionally donate; and to which my Amazon Smile preference is currently designated).
