You have been doing an incredible job spreading happiness through happy notes. 10,000 happy notes have been mailed out so far!
Now it’s YOUR turn to send me a note. This note will be different from the normal happy notes. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all connect through our happiest memories?
I want you to send me homemade postcards with one of your happiest memories. Similar to PostSecret (my inspiration for this project!), you’ll send me a postcard to the mailing address below with an artistic representation (can be a photo, drawing, painting, etc.) and a sentence or two about your happy memory. The memory can be big or small – anything from a life-changing event to a realization you came to. We (hopefully) have thousands of happy memories, so feel free to send as many as you’d like. One Happster may send a postcard about seeing her child’s first steps, while another may send one about seeing a beautiful sunset.
This is an on-going project called Paper Nostalgia and I will be posting these here for everyone to enjoy on an on-going basis. Please let me know on the other side of your homemade postcard if you don’t want me to include your name on the blog.
Here’s the address to send your happy memories here:
PO Box 7140
Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067
Here’s a few I’ve made myself as examples:
I created all of these by gluing white 2 index cards together, gathering scrapbook paper and pictures and using a sharpie. You can put a stamp on the back and write in the address like you see below.
I am SO excited to see your happy memories! Will you send me a postcard? Do you have questions? Let me know in the comments!
