Small Shiny Secret Bits Of Joy


I despise direct marketing and postage paid envelopes. I vastly dislike having to clutter up my house recycling them. In one of my "order, now! frenzies," my Self boxes and bruises my Self about contributing to consumer waste and adding needless waste to our over-burdened landfills.

I adore my son's artwork. I worry about using so much paper. Thanks to one of the PghMamas, I have found a happy, joyful solution. I am now mailing the day's least favoured artwork - postage paid - to some lovely minimum wage worker who has to slog through and log hundreds of pieces of mail everyday. On each one, I write specially handcrafted to brighten your day.

I only hope they enjoy it. As for the corporations.....well.....let them figure out how to recycle all of it. Regardless, it gives me some small shiny secret bit of joy.

Thank the PghMama who came up with the idea. I added the "personalized message." Which I do think adds a nice touch.
