I have a really fun idea. I’m actually a good organizer. I volunteer myself to collect the information and set this idea in motion. Some of you will get really creative with this and we’ll have loads of fun. A button will be made like the one above and you’ll be recognized as participating in the Gardening by Letter project.
I miss writing and would love to send out a card that maybe I’ve made or bought. I’m drawn to flowers and the such—so I’m naming it The Gardening Letter project. After picking a pretty card or writing a lovely garden letter….I might choose to include a packet of seeds, a dried flower, a small handkerchief, bookmark, gift certificate for free stuff, or anything you can send in a envelope. The only rule is that you must keep to a standard card size envelope. Keep it to gardening, flowers, and well…you get it.
Here is how it works—I collect the addresses of the bloggers who want to participate. Once a month I’ll chose a person/persons as the recipient of that months collection of gardening letters or cards. We need at least 12 people to get started and the more the merrier. I’ll verify the addresses or PO Box.
Entries will end March 1st, 2009
Here is what we are going to do.
1. Send me your address by the link at the top of my page. It goes through wordpress and ends up in my inbox. I’ll contact you by email with a PO Box where to send the cards.
2. Mail the cards to my PO Box. This protects you from everyone but me;) I send them out to the name/s of those selected for that month. They get to open a box full of Gardening Letters and then post about their goodies.
3. Sign your card with an online name or your real name as you get to choose. Do not put your return address on the envelope unless you want the recipient to have it.
Enter by March 1st to be included!!! I’ll keep a running tally of the numbers that have signed up. I’ll post that number daily.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Gardening by Letter will start the 15th of March if we get enough people to sign up. The cards will be sent according to the order in which I receive your address. So the first person to sign up—will be first on the list to get a card. I’ll be last so you don’t think I’m doing it for me. The project will run for one full year.
Start signing up!!!! Click the–contact me—at the top of the home page of my blog.
Please share this idea with those you think would like to participate.
I have made a category for this project. It’s on my sidebar. Once the project starts, I’m make the category a page so you can check it for updates and track the progress.
This project is closed for new sign-ups. I will list the card recipients as they post about the project. Each month, someone receives a package of cards from all the others who signed up for this project. Please visit the ones who chose to post about their goodies and see what came their way. A link is provided for those who included a post. We are behind so all should be posted my Feb. 2010.
