Six Degrees of Separation

In this day and age of email, twitter, facebook, and all of that other lovely social media, I've come to realize that we forget about snail mail. And to be honest, it's way more fun to get a letter or card in the mail than it is to see a facebook or twitter notification on your computer screen or phone. The postal service is pretty amazing to tell you the truth. Write a letter, stick a stamp on it, drop it into a post box, and a few days later it magically gets to its recipient.

I got to wondering just how far a card could travel. Now couple that with the fun game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. The end result? Six degrees of separation-- snail mail style. So I designed ten of these lovely cards.



Inside each card is a space to jot down your name, location, and a small note. Then you send the card on to another friend. My goal? Have each of these ten cards eventually make it back to me in Baltimore and see just how far they traveled. At first I thought I would just send ten of them to family or friends, but on second thought, I decided to open it up to my readers as well as it seemed I could diversify a bit that way.

Sound fun? Just leave a comment below with an email address so I can get in touch with you to get an address, or send me an email at rowhouse14{at}gmail{dot}com with your full name and address. I'm willing to send a card internationally as well, so those of you not in the U.S. feel free to join in the fun! :)

  9. LOVE this! When I first started my card biz, I made & sent 65 cards to friends with an extra stamped envelope and a note asking that people send the card on to someone else. I'm disappointed to say that few people actually told me what they did with their cards, and a few said the cards were so pretty they couldn't part with them! Not exactly helping my marketing effort!
    Would love to take part. I'll email you my address.
