Hi you guys! How’s your week going so far? Mine’s had some ups and downs, but seeing all of the entries coming in for the first ever Make-It & Mail It challenge have really made me smile. (There’s gonna be some mighty happy mailboxes, yeah! And! There’s still time to play, yay!)
I’ve had a few questions about the challenge, so I thought I’d put the answers here in case you were wondering too.
- You don’t have to make a new card for the challenge — using a card that you made a while back is perfectly fine. And! I think that’s even better — get those cards sent to make people smile. :)
- You can hand deliver a card if you like — but mailing is more fun to me. That way it’s a totally unexpected surprise. And it sure is great to see something besides bills in the mailbox, don’t you think?
- I like to mail extra thick cards in padded envelopes — that way they don’t get mashed.
- If you’re in the US, you can mail cards and letters to other countries just by putting on proper postage and popping them in the mailbox — no trip to the post office required. Here’s a handy link to calculate postage.
Last but not least, I’ve added a new image over there in the sidebar to link to the post for the current challenge. (It has bunches of envelopes from Katrina at Pugly Pixel — love them all!) That way you’ll be able to find it to add your link, yay!
And now a question for you: would you be interested in a badge for your blog saying that you entered the challenge? Let me know, I’d love to hear!
Now, stop reading this post and go and Make-It and Mail-It! You only have until Monday to join in the fun! :)
