NLWM, Paint Party Friday, & Some Linky Love!

Fun times and mail love just keeps flowing in this week! Wednesday I received this sweet surprise from Joy in CA:
So cool to get this fun bottle and then! Opened it up to find a little note and such pretty pink nail polish! Yay!
 Thursday brought notes and cards from CA, OK, and WI!
I'm still keeping up with my goal of sending out four cards a day (28 sent so far! And have cards addressed and ready to go through Monday...) Made these two postcards with my brandy new Caran D'ache watersoluble pastels--scrumptious colors!!

So, linking up to Paint Party Friday, Creative Every Day, and Tammy over at Daisy Yellow has started a new April mission to Share the Linky Love! Which makes me think I should share a link for Lindsay Ostrom-click on her name if you'd like to see more National Letter Writing love folks are receiving this month! Crazy fun!!
Hoping to get more cards made today though I have a bunch of errands to run this morning, groceries and returns and I need STAMPS!! Then Bug has basketball this afternoon and bowling tomorrow (only three weeks left--the season flew by!) Busy is good, right? Happy Friday! Happy Weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

In the same way, let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
~Matthew 5:16

    1. Hi Kim!
      If you click on Lindsay's link above, she's the one who organized National Letter Writing Month and can get you hooked up into our group! She assigned everyone pen pals for the month, which that's now closed, but we've had a few late comers join in, so there's 100+ participating and it's pretty much a free for all--everyone's mailing goodies to everyone randomly...too much fun! Hope to see you there!
