*Please know that I live in the middle of the woods. My mailbox is on a main road which is actually two roads from my house. Even though I try as hard as I can, sometimes the mailman beats me to the box! I promise that I will do my best to get it there on time but it may not get picked up till the next day. If you don’t get something in a timely manner please message me and I will resend. We have had mail thieves in the past but I think that situation has been taken care of...sad some people are like that.
I am a forty something mom to two boys ages 8 and 2. They keep me pretty busy. My oldest plays lacrosse so we have lots of practices and games. We also like going to the movies and the library together. I am an art teacher in an elementary school. This will be my 20th year of teaching in the same school!

I'm sorry this does seem really long. Please know that I will find joy and beauty in every PC, letter and work of art I receive! Nothing beats finding great stuff in your mailbox. I enjoy writing and receiving snail mail and also spend a lot of time decorating envelopes. I have not done ATCs since art school/college but I am excited to start making them again. I also live in the middle of nowhere and have a P.O. Box. I try to get out as much mail before due date as not to be late. I get to the post office at least three times a week and I rate as soon as I get home.
As I said, I have to sons ages 9 and 3. Both boys enjoy playing lacrosse. My youngest loves construction equipment and my oldest is into video games. Both boys love to be creative. They love to paint and draw. The both love those little craft kits that you can get at the craft stores. They also like card games and even though there's a large age gap between them, my oldest will play them with his brother. They are both candy lovers and have a fascination with pez dispensers. The love slime and beg me to make it at home all the time. As for mail, they love animal postcards and neat stamps. Most of all they are excited to find stuff in the mailbox and even more thrilled when it's for them!
