One Month Anniversary Give-Away

It's hard to believe that I've had this blog for a whole month! As a thanks for reading it, sending your own letters & journal entries, & leaving comments, I want to give someone a teensy-tinsy gift. You have made this so much fun for me, so I hope today's gift gives a little fun back. :)

I created these Stamps (yes, you can really mail letters with them :D) for the blog and thought that today would be a good time to share them with everyone. There will be at least two winners, but you have to earn the prize. :)

First, think of three people you could write a letter to. Second, leave a comment on this post of who you would write & why/a basic idea of what you would say. Next month I'll announce the winners (but I'll let them know ahead of time because, before I actually send the stamps, they must have the letters already written, which is the third thing you have to do if you want to win. Fourth is to give me your address so I can write you & send the stamps. Fifth is to actually mail the letter using the stamp I give you. That's all. :) If the winners are willing to share their letters on the blog, that would be extra special & I'd love them forever, but they don't have to). I might even choose one person randomly to win a couple of the stamps, so be sure to comment even if you don't think your idea is as good as someone else's. :) I might also have to give one to the first brave soul to leave a comment of their ideas (hint, hint).

Be creative! (I guess this could be a sixth step for anyone who really wants to win.) The main winners will be the ones with the best ideas for who & what to write. :) I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. I'm afraid you might make it too hard for me to choose, but that's a good problem to have. Please post your comments within 2 weeks (by July 24). I'll try to put a reminder on each upcoming blogpost.

Oh, & what I have in mind for the prize is the person with the best 3 ideas wins 3 stamps (plus one that I use to send my letter to them) & then the person with 1 or 2 ideas that are my favorite will win that number of stamps. Hope that makes sense.

Also, if you can't leave a comment, send me an email ( mcstarbuck@gmail.com ). I know some people have told me they were having trouble with that. Emailed comments will still count.

Thanks again for reading!


  1. Since I am going to college out of state soon, I will probably write letters to my family and friends about how the new school is. I will write about the people I meet, about the food, my classes and professors, about how excited and nervous I am, and about how much I miss them all. I know it is not very creative, but I know it will be something my family and friends will like receiving.

  2. What a wonderful idea. I still love to write letters to my favorite aunt in Florida. I save all of the ones she writes me. They are a speical connection. Congratulations on one month.
