You Got Mailed ~ Paper Layout by Andrea Friebus

You Got Mailed ~ Paper Layout by Andrea Friebus


A closer look at the journaling…

“Grammy and Grampy Yoshida sent you a cute Winnie the Pooh Valentine’s Day card (which you destroyed), but it was the envelope that caught our attention. They had made postage stamps out of one of your photos. That’s so cool! Now-if only YOU would move as slow as snail mail! Mason @ 13 months.”


Get those creative juices flowing…

*  How many days per week is mail currently delivered to your home or post office? How does this compare to when you were a child?
*  How much junk mail do you typically receive in a week?
*  Where do you have your mail delivered?
*  Do you know your mail delivery person(s)? Do you tip them or give them gifts during the holiday season?
*  Do you send items by mail, such as bill payments? Or is this all done online now?
* How much has the price of a postage stamp increased since you were a child?
*  How is mail handled in your home? Who picks it up? Opens it? Where does it go? Does it pile up on your counter or table?


Documenting this part of your life now may help others…

* Learn more about how today’s postal system functions and the media that makes its way into your home on a regular basis.


Other ideas

* Use your junk mail to embellish your scrapbooking layouts. For instance, cut out phrases, slogans or words, crop pretty images, re-use envelopes, or incorporate a date stamped by the post office as your layout date.
