The Oh-So-Happy-Mail Project

If you’ve known me for more than one day, you probably know that I love mail. I love getting lovely mail {let’s be honest, bills suck}, and I love sending mail.

Each year I do a Gift Exchange, and I’ve done Happy Mail Exchanges in the past… but I wanted to do something regular and fun; A Oh-So-Happy Mail Project.

Here’s how it will work:

+ You’ll sign up with your details letting me know you want to be involved

+ I’ll partner you with someone from around the world

+ You’ll write them a letter and get a letter in return

+ You’ll feel happy!

{I plan on making this a regular thing, every one to two months depending on how it all goes}.

Fill out my online form.

Let me know if you have any questions below. I’ll close the form when it reaches 500 entrants. If you miss out, please join us next month. x

  • Yay! this sounds like a whole lot of fun! Loved FMS Gift Exchange, its so lovely to receive something in the post x

  • I love happy mail so of course, I love this! Sign me up, Scottie!

    Brilliant idea, I was actually thinking the other day that PAD is a bit like being pen pals, I’ve made wonderful friends all over the world. Thanks for all you do Chantelle,

    • Sandra

      Hello Janni,
      Can you please give me information on PAD and how I can join. Thank you?

        Hi Sandra, I think she’s referring to photoaday.. all the info here >

        • Janni Gumly Gumly

          Thanks Tarina, yes Sandra, that’s it. It’s a photo challenge were a series of prompts are provided & each group member posts a photo that they have taken that fits the prompts. Members are all over the world & it is extremely well administered. It’s one of the most amazing, positive groups I’ve ever experienced & Ive established real friendships with people all over the world through this group.
