Sticker Winners and Snail Mail Results


Congratulations to our sticker winners in the SWAK giveaway! Three names were drawn at random:

Fat Dormouse
said: I'm a new reader...and I voted! I used to send more letters than I do now - my mum loves letters so I ought to make the effort more. But I do enjoy sending handmade cards for birthdays.

Jean Williams said: I am pretty bad at even remembering to send my own Mother a card but I want to get better at it because I feel guilty when someone sends me one and I forget to send them one, but I would like to get better at it. I'm 58 so I'd better change fast! :) I love the BIRD BRAIN stickers the best! ;) It makes it more fun to send cards when you have something to decorate them with ;)

I do still write letters occasionally and love to make actual cards to send out - and decorating the envy is as much fun as making the card!

Congratulations ladies! Please send me your mailing info--you'll find a link to my email in my profile section or at www.susanfaye.net. Please pick out which stickers you'd like--you will receive 3 sheets, and you can mix and match from the sets below:

The Poll Results

The majority of responders (a little over a third) are just like me, and send a card or letter via snail mail whenever there is a birthday or anniversary. About 20 percent write once a week, another 20 percent write once a month and the other 20 percent send something out once in a blue moon. One reader sends out so much mail that it might actually average out to one a day:

teaberry said... I said once a week, if you average mine out, once a day would be closer! That's because I send out homemade cards of my fat cat Melon to an array of friends and relatives on holidays, including Father's Day and Independence Day. For the big holidays (Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween) I send out between 50 & 60 cards. . . Christmas is about twice that. I also send cards for other occasions. I still look forward to going to that mail box and hoping to find a personal card or letter!

I'm so happy that the art of letter-writing on paper and snail mail card sending are not forgotten arts! We need to keep our letter carriers busy and employed! Thank you to everyone who participated in my Very Scientific Poll!
Didn't win stickers? Don't fret--they are now available in my Etsy shop...just click on an image for more information.
