More Letter Writing ...

Let's continue the letter writing theme, on this fine Monday in April, official National Letter Writing Month. Letters are so good at genuinely connecting people and I have made at least two connections today:

Every now and then I check my analytics to see who's checking out my sites and I found this awesome gal in Australia who is herself, mail obsessed. Bianca, writer of the blog Goodnight Little Spoon, has quite the collection of mail art for all to enjoy. So this is a shout to her, check out her new, mail themed Etsy shop, Mushab00m Bazaar here. I so want to exchange a letter with her!

Bianca's blog lead me to another amazing site called, To Mr. Cheng. Apparently Mr. Cheng receives a crap ton of strange mailed objects, from mannequin heads to remote controls. Before you try to pull that in the states though, remember this is from Europe. I can only imagine what my postman would say if a tried to mail a slice of Kraft Singles cheese to Texas.

Catching the wave of this lesser known holiday has also brought sales to my store. Three out of the five specifically themed items I have posted in shop have sold! I give credit to very supportive magazines like Country Living who promote items by Etsy sellers and suggest searching Etsy when crafting trends like these pop up. What a huge audience boost!

The last item I sold from the NCLWM promotion as of today

So, join in the excitement of these fun trends. Make connections!
