Paperless Post

We have become quite paperless with our correspondence.

It's a shame isn't it?  Particularly for a sucker like me.  I LOVE paper, stationery, note pads... you name it, if it's nice paper I will probably have some...

I do have a wooden chest of drawers that I have had since I was younger, that is now, solely full of paper, pads & stationery items.  If you need a paper clip, it's there.  If you need a staple it's there.  If you need a birthday card, it's there.  If you need lined paper, it's there.  If you need a key ring it's in there.   You get the idea right?  I love that stuff.

Things have changed though.  I used to write reams of letters by hand.  These days I can barely get a card sent on time.

I have found this cool website though!   It's fun!  I can still send cards & letters & invitations!  But I don't have to do it in the mail.  It's online!  All of it!

I still have the pleasure of picking the right card for someone.  Yay!  I can still write it & personalise it.

I recently used it to send out some Mother's Day cards actually.  Not just cards to wish them a happy mother's day though.  The mum's were all coming to our house.  So I changed them & used them as a note to invite them to our place for lunch on Mother's Day.  So cute!  Much nicer than a plain old email.

It runs on coins though!  Handy really.  You pay a few real dollars for some coins.  You use your "banked" coins in your account to send your cards to your recipients.  Easy!  As long as you know the email address & these days everyone has one, you are set to share the love with everyone.  Your "postbox" in your account shows all the cards you have sent.  You can receive replies through there as well which is fun!  I might have to send a card to myself so I can reply to see how that works.  Hey!  Don't laugh.  I have imaginary friends just like the next kid!

I sent BJ a nice card on his email.  So many cute designs to pick from.  Actually it was stationery, so writing paper really.  A note.  Really cute!  Just type in your message & you are done with a couple of clicks.

It's going to come in really handy as birthday season hots up.  I think this is going to get quite a work out this site.  Don't forget to check it out!

I think I'll stick to the paper ones and snail mail. I still like receiving mail and also special cards and that is easier for me to deal with.
