The Fourth Annual Snail Mail My Email

Update November 14, 2014: Unfortunately, the letter submission part of this project has closed early, but for a very good reason. This project received over 7,000 email submissions since Monday!! Just imagining all that mail being sent around the world is such a wonderful feeling. Once I have finished designing all of the letters assigned to me, I will be sharing my creations in a new post. 

Today is the day! The day I get to transform my first email into snail mail. I’m so excited. SMME

A few months ago, I came across a write-up on Snail Mail My Email (SMME), a project dedicated to transforming emails into snail mail and sending them on their way. When I applied to be a volunteer, there was a note that due to the volume of applicants not everyone would be chosen. Eventually, other life things continued and I forgot that I had applied until I saw a post of the SMME Facebook page near the end of October.

So, on November 4 when I received word that I had been chosen as a volunteer I couldn’t stop smiling. From November 10 – 16, I will be assigned emails to handwrite and decorate to be sent to the desired recipient. I can’t wait to get started. Stay tuned for my creations, because I will be sharing them every day on my Instagram.

Note: Thank you to frombk2napa for your comment and pointing out that the website is now open for submissions, if you want an email turned into snail mail.
