52 Weeks of Snail Mail with A Beautiful Mess

A Beautiful Mess Happy Mail subscription 

It's actually 53 weeks..but that sounded weird.

I'm bringing snail mail back...yup!

I've decided that the world needs more snail mail! My dad is always saying how nothing good comes in the mail, only bills. Well he obviously doesn't subscribe to any monthly boxes. :)

I loooove stationary, pretty cards, washi tape, etc. I have a collection actually. I don't use most of it because I love it so much. Surprise!

So, I've challenged myself this year, to hand write a letter to one person a week! It's been fun and I've actually done 6 so far in January. :) I'm ahead of the game.

I recently signed up for the monthly Happy Mail subscription box through A Beautiful Mess and I AM IN LOVE. This gives me even more of a reason to get my mail on. It's $15 a month (if you sign up for 12 months) for $50 worth of happy mail stuff. Picture shown above!

Random, but I did the math for postage and it'll cost me $25 for the whole year in postage to send a card every week. What an inexpensive cost. So worth it to make people happy!

I'm really excited to do this. I saved all the cards that I would receive when I was younger and I hope my nieces do the same thing with mine.

SO! If you want a pen pal, or just pretty happy mail...let's be pen pals! Email me at miranduh007@yahoo and we can chat :)  I would love to brighten your day.


  1. Snail mail is definitely underappreciated! My boyfriend's mom always makes my day by sending me little cards and notes. Its a little something that shows you cared and thought about them enough to sit and write something out and mail it! Good luck!

  2. I love snail mail! Definitely emailing you!

  3. So true, nobody writes letters anymore. I remember having a bunch of penpals as a kid and I miss it in a way.

  4. I was just explaining to my boyfriend that we should do this because I love collecting postcards but have never actually received or sent one. I think it's a great thing to do. Honestly getting mail really makes you happy.

  5. What a great idea! I love getting mail!

  6. I love getting snail mail, unless it's bills.
