Holiday Happy Mail Sign Ups Are Open!

I can’t believe it’s already November 1st, and officially time to start thinking about the upcoming holidayseason! Gifts, packaging, baking, oh my! I am so excited to spend this holiday season with friends and family, and focus on the little things that make this season so wonderful. This means lots of packages will be headed out my front door to send a little dose of holiday cheer to loved ones all around the country!

You can join in on the fun, too! My sweet friend Hilari, with Be Sweet and I have teamed up to offer our wonderful readers a chance to participate in our first annual holidayhappymailswap!

What is a “mail swap,” you ask?

It’s simple- you’ll sign up and be paired with another snail mail lover. We’ll put you in touch, and from there, it’s up to you! Get to know each other, spread the holiday spirit, and make a new friend along the way!

What if I’m not creative and don’t know what to send my partner? 

We are sure you are! If crafting isn’t for you, what about baking some holiday treats, putting together a themed package, or sending some fabulous gift packaging materials? The swap can include absolutely ANYTHING you’d like to mail! It’s all about spreading the love to others, in whatever way you would like! *You do not have to have a blog to sign up… the more the merrier!

How do I sign up for the Holiday Happy Mail Swap?

1: We want to streamline the process for you! Simply send me an email – – by Sunday, November 10, 2013. In this email, include your name, your address, your blog name {if applicable}, what you’re most excited about this holiday season, and anything else you think we should know! Additionally, tell us whether or not you’re interested in having a holiday partner outside of the US.

Throughout your happy mail process, be sure to tweet and instagram your progress! Be sure to follow Thuy and I on instagram, too! @mypaperpinwheel and @besweetblog.
