It’s also really awesome to see how creative some of these packages are. There was a lot of beautiful wrapping, incredible crafting and some crazy cute curating going on. It’s safe to say that I have a girl crush on each and every one of you right now!
Oh. My. Goodness! I’m so excited to share this blog post because it’s our first ever Snail Mail Trade inspiration post! Our first round is pretty much complete and I’m really pleased to share that it’s worked out fabulously …. well almost. Unfortunately there’s been a couple of delays on international packages and one lost in transit… but all in all I think with over 40 people involved, we’ve all done a super incredible job of of Round One!
Trying to get everyone organised with partners in the same country or with a partner abroad was really tricky, but it appears that everyone has been over the moon with what they received, making this all so worth putting together 🙂 I know a few of you have been asking for your partners details to say thank you, but as I mentioned in the email it’s up to you to include your information should you like to be known… but I’d like to tell you right now that your present MADE YOUR PARTNERS DAY! Virtual high five!!
However, if you still want to say thanks, share your message to your partner in the comments box attached to this post … your partner knows who you are and will be able to read it here 😀
So, as promised, I’ve been compiling all the pictures I’ve been receiving from you since the swap for a colossal inspiration board blog post 🙂 I’ve included as many as I could before posting this, but if I get any late comers I’ll try adding your snaps in later. How incredible are all these packages? And they all came from strangers!!
It’s been such a pleasure hearing from everyone who participated when these started arriving – it’s incredible how many people received their parcels on a really rough day. Seems that good karma came just in the nick of time and turned a lot of frowns upside down 😀 I know mine made me giddy with excitement; it’s incredible to know that you can pass that happiness on to someone you don’t even know. Doesn’t it make you want to do more random acts of kindness?
I’m looking forward to hosting Snail Mail Trade Round 2 in the near future… I hope you’d like to participate again too – plus it would be lovely to get some new people involved in the next game as well 😀
Thanks again to everyone who participated and everyone who tweeted, blogged and instagrammed your packages – you rock!! And an extra special thank you to Jade and Claire who both inspired me to set this up… Big love y’all!
If you’d like to say thank you to your super awesome secret partner, post your comments here…
Thanks again for making my Snail Mail dreams come true…
Bring on Round 2!
