We are so excited to announce that we have officially launched a new YouTube series called “Love Jac Mail”!! This series documents my letter writing process and the goal of it is to keep me accountable, inspire you, and connect with you to share tips and ideas to make us all better mail senders!!
This has been an idea of mine for over a year now. I have notebooks filled with lists of topic ideas and I am proud to say the first three of the video are up now!
We truly want this to be a place of encouragement. Yes, I own this greeting card company, but no, I’m not the best card mailer. I’m really good at thinking about writing the note, I’m not half bad at actually writing the note, but I’m the worst at getting it in the mail. You know how they say, “The cobbler’s children have no shoes.” Well that’s sometimes the case for me. A couple years ago I forgot to send my own Grandmother a birthday card! Thanks to this new series, I was determined and I mailed her a card this year!! You can watch the video here.
To make this series happen, I took my own advice and “just started.” The first video is a handful of thank you cards that I had meant to send almost a month before. We really believe it’s never too late to send a thank you! Plus, it also gave me the excuse to use our “I meant to mail this on…” inkable stamp!! You can watch that video here!!
In the second video, I was also taking the time to write two very overdue thank you notes to our cousins who visited us back in November. This gave me the perfect opportunity to use the handmade cards Conroy had made in our art class, Artists & Crafts! You can watch that video here!!
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The plan is to deliver you a video once a week. You’ll get a little backstory on the card, some tips from me, and watch me decorate the envelopes (one of my favorite parts)!!! We will also feature tips from you, so please leave a comment below the video!! So far our favorite tip is from Sharon Danks who suggested gifting a bride or mom-to-be thank you cards for her shower gift…then passing out the envelopes at the shower so everyone can write their own address to make it easier for the guest of honor to get the cards in the mail! GENIUS!!!
And for those of you who didn’t know, April is National Letter Writing Month!! (Don’t worry, we didn’t know either until a couple weeks ago!) So, we will be participating in the “write_on” challenge and writing a letter each day of the month!! Please join us in the fun and follow along on Instagram! Be sure to tag us in your photos so we do this together!! Can’t wait to see what you create!
