Surprise Mail

Had you forgotten about my little snail mail experiment? I had. In fact I had almost entirely given up hope that anyone would come through for me. I got home from a long day of teaching last week, checked the mail and found this:
I thought absolutely nothing of it since I tend to get snail mail here and there from friends and family. I didn't pay attention to the post mark and thought maybe it was an invitation to a friend's wedding or something of the sort. So I opened the envelope...
...and I became very excited when I saw this:

The first card had made its way back to my house! Its final route? Baltimore to Connecticut to Rhode Island to New York City to California and finally back to good old Charm City.

I am beyond thrilled that I got one of the ten cards back since I had quickly given up on the whole experiment. This has kept my hopes alive, and I'm crossing my fingers that I'll at least get one or two more in the mail. Of course, I will most definitely keep you all updated if another one come my way. Keep your fingers crossed for me! :)
P.S. The winner of the Loralyn Designs giveaway is commenter #18, Shirley! Congrats Shirley! I'll be in touch with you via email shortly!


  1. Congratulations! That's such a nice idea, where did you get it?


  2. i hadn't heard about your experiment (I LOVE experiments) until this post. i would have been totally into it! you've got me thinking how i can put my own spin on it. i'll definitely link back to you a. if i ever get my act together and b. if i remember (mind isn't what it used to be).

    hope you receive nine more letters!

  3. I sent mine overseas, so it will probably take a long time returning to Baltimore. Glad to see the experiment works!

  4. That's really neat! I'm glad at least one made it's way back to you!

  5. So cool!!! I emailed you about this after you'd sent all the cards and was hoping you'd post something more on it soon. That is so rad. I hope you get more!!

  6. That is so neat!! I am glad that you got one back. I really love the idea.

  7. This looks SO AWESOME what a cool idea!!!

  8. Yay my card made it back!!!!!! :)

  9. I'm an old softy for snail mail and would have loved to help with the experiment. Are you going to do another?

  10. Oh, this brings back memories! I used to receive these from overseas penpals, as a teen. That has stopped now, with email and facebook, and such.

    I believe we're all keeping the faith for you; the odds of 9 more cards returning seem high!
