Keeping the USPS Alive...

Guest Post by Kelly Griego

...One letter at a time.

Courtney and I are bound and determined to keep snail mail alive in the electronic age, if it’s the last thing we do! Nothing puts a smile on my face more than sending and receiving paper mail.

I tend to find one line of cards, buy in bulk, and use them for a full year. Then I have to find a new line, lest I accidentally send someone the same card twice!

2009 was the year of Quiplip cards. I just could not get enough of those sock puppet cards. 2010 will be the year of Uncooked cards. Because they are hilarious, irreverent, and utterly ridiculous. And these days, we can all benefit from a little humor by way of our mailboxes.

Dearest Courtney, please look away. As this will be your birthday card.


Or shoot, maybe this one?


Oh but this one kills me too!


Ok, expect 10 birthday cards from me this year. Consider this your bail out, U.S. Post Office.
