The Send Pretty Mail project started in January 2013. The premise - to send 5 pieces of pretty mail, whether handmade or store-bought, each month. To send good mail days to friends and strangers both near and far.

More than 60 pieces of pretty mail were sent across Canada and the US and the world. To places like Argentina, Australia, South Africa, Malaysia and the Channel Islands. Occasionally, a beautiful piece of return mail would brighten up my mailbox.

There really is nothing better than a good mail day - something beautiful tucked in between the bills and the flyers never fails to make someone smile.

Here's to more great mail days in 2014 and beyond. Hope you were inspired to send a little pretty mail too!
