snail mail ~ the june project

Prepare to be charmed by the nostalgia of receiving a handwritten letter or a carefully crafted parcel – we’re calling on all lovers of the analogue to reconnect in the most heartwarming way. This month, the Creative Collective presents the Snail Mail Swap, an initiative to sprinkle a little joy into mailboxes across the globe.

Rediscover the Art of Snail Mail

In a digital world where communication zips by at the speed of light, there’s something inherently special about the slow dance of snail mail. This month, we challenge you to pick up a pen, find some fancy paper, or craft something small yet significant to share with a creative soul somewhere out in the world. Whether it’s an artisanal bookmark, a handmade postcard, or a tiny trinket that whispers a story, your thoughtfulness is set to travel across oceans and continents.

Share the Joy of Giving (and Receiving)

Snap and Sneak Peek:
Before your creation starts its journey, capture a snapshot. Tease us with a sneak peek by uploading it to the Creative Collective Flickr Group or our Facebook Page. Let the anticipation build!

Bloggers Unite:
For the wordsmiths who document life’s little joys on blogs, make our Creative Collective Link Love your weekly haunt. Every Wednesday, link up and let the community in on your process, your send-offs, and the wonderful things you receive.

Need a Muse or a Chat?
If you’re scouring for inspiration or yearning for a chat with fellow craft-minded folks, the Creative Collective Forum is buzzing with ideas and conversations just waiting for you to join in!
