Sending Out Some Cardboard Hugs!

Wow when you guys reach out, you reach out!

I'm in awe, thank you to every single person who took the time to let me know they were there after reading Monday's post. I haven't felt so empowered in a while. I'm so grateful for this amazing community. THANK YOU. 

It's been such an unexpected year in so many ways. When I started An Inspired 2015, I was so excited about what I would learn on the way and I hoped people would want to get involved too. Seeing handwritten letters pop up from our Love Letter Swap and so many bloggers rising to the challenge of Falling (back) in Love with their blog has been incredible. 

For the love of snail mail #aninspired2015

So today I'm celebrating by sending out my 'cardboard hugs'. I have new pen pals that need replies, some friends I just want to drop in and say hi to and some goodies to send because yarn in the mail is awesome right? Knowing that someone will find a little piece of happiness on their doorstep this week is great motivation. It feels a little like 'giving back' after the positive messages of support I received this week.

If you're sending out mail this week will you do me a favour? Will you tag me on social media with a picture? I'd love to see some real mail and happy intentions. If you've tucked your Volume 1 cards somewhere for safe keeping, let's make this week the week we send a smile in the post! Oh and you can let me know if you've received anything too- I want to see those smiles because it makes me so genuinely happy that we're knitting this community together.

Also, don't forget that if you bought your card locally and supported a maker, tag it with #justacard too because that is a message I want to see loud and proud everywhere. If you missed the details of this global campaign with very local implications, please click here

Stay playful!
