Make the best of everything!: Fun with Mail

Fun with Mail

On Pinterest, I came across a blog called The Givers Log.  On the Givers log, the blogger sends all sorts of fun things through the mail.  I guess as long as an item is under 13 ounces, it can be sent through the mail with stamps on it. 

On Easter Sunday, my sister in law and my aunt were discussing if these things could REALLY go through the mail.  The next day, I decided to start a mail experiment of my own. 

I went to the dollar tree, picked up some random things, and sent them to a few of my closest friends, and of course included my sister in law and aunt in on the fun.

I was a little nervous about sending these out.  I of course just went to a local mailbox and dropped them in. I was a worried that if I brought them into the post office that they would refuse to mail them out. 

1) For my ( new) sister in law Sarah, i sent a package of nerds. Sarah lives in Des Moines.  I wrote the address and put the stamps right on the package.

A Day later, she received them!

2)  For Aunt Dorothy, I sent a bag with a little bit of candy inside.  I taped the bag shut and wrote the address right on the bag. Aunt Dorothy lives in the Iowa City area.

And a Day later she received this in her mailbox!

3)  For my Friend Sandra who lives in Chicago, I sent these glow bracelets.

She received them 2 days after I sent them!

4) I sent my Friend Karen a book for her daughter, my Goddaughter.

She received her book in two days!

5) For my oldest friend, Alexis who lives in DC, I sent this fun scribble pad!

And she received it about 5 days later!

So yeah! all of my random t hings were received!  I must say that I did feel a little silly when I was placing these items in my local mail box ( without a return address)

Now, I am trying to think of ideas for fun invitations for my sons first birthday party.  ( I only have 6 months to plan!)
