Little Cards: May

22 Jun

Oh, you have no idea how happy and flat-out RELIEVED I am that I can finally share these Little Cards with you! Not one, but TWO batches from the Childhood Memory theme went MIA, so not only did their makers make new batches, I had to wait for them to arrive, hoping they wouldn’t get lost, too. Good news: they didn’t!

Childhood Memory:

Pirates:

I hope my fellow adventurers also feel like May’s Little Cards were worth their wait! I’m pleased to report that June’s themes have been going much more smoothly on my end– I should have the last batch of Summer ATCs any day now. With any luck I’ll be sharing those and the ATCs from Jenn’s Wizard of Oz theme with you very soon, and I’ll be announcing July’s sole theme in our Facebook group, ATCs: Little Cards on Big Adventures, even sooner!

Bon Voyage 😉
Sincerely, Kate ~!~

June 5th: This post is starting not with a bang but a whisper, though I’m grateful for the postcard from Justine all the same.

June 6th: An actual letter came from Justine now, and one from Kristy came, too.

June 7th: After Jody’s letter joined my little reply pile, the Loganator received a rather special piece of paper…

June 8th: I heard from both of my fellow Michiganders today.

June 9th: The Manolo Love streak came to an end, but Pablo had a letter from Charmaine.

June 12th: This week started with something in both boxes– Kayla’s letter was in one and a batch of Little Cards was in the other.

June 13th: Logan got a dose of happy mail thanks to Papa Halvorson.

Then today, June 15th, I got a letter from Jody, while our Build-a-Bear friends got some new clothes.

It’s been a pretty good month for letters, and for books, too! I’ve finished Furiously Happy and The Book Jumper, and am well on my way through Everything, Everything. With any luck the rest of this summer will continue to be full of good things and good times– and not just for me! 😉

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

I’d apologize for not posting this on the 30th like I meant to, but I know no one besides me actually minds so let’s just get to it!

May 17th: Once again I got the story back from Sarah, and she sent a letter along with it.

May 18th: I got a long-forgotten travel journal from Othella, and Bridget got these cute new pajamas:

May 20th: And once again I got a letter from Jody– the first of two in this mail call.

May 25th: After several days with no Manolo Love, Pablo hooked me up with a batch of Little Cards.

May 26th: The story and a letter yet again came “from Frankfort with Love.”

May 27th: And then I received a letter from Rose out in California.

May 30th: Also from California: a box my dad sent Logan with stuff per Boy Scouts plus books about a dog named Harry.

May 31st: I told you I got another letter from Jody! I also got a postcard from Krista, too.

June 1st: Last but not least was a set of calendar pages for my Day-Timer… Exactly seven months early, haha.

Yeah, much like last time I still didn’t have a whole lot to share, which very well could have been why I forgot about blogging. The good news is that 1) I was able to finish Furiously Happy the other day, and 2) I’ve made about 30 ATCs per ATC the Change.

Speaking of ATCs! Jenn and I still have batches we’re waiting on per our Pirates and Childhood Memories themes, but hopefully we’ll have ’em all soon now that May’s over and we have June’s Little Cards to tend to.

Thanks for reading this if you are, in fact, still reading this. Have a great month!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

15 May

There’s part of me that’s a bit sad I only have a few days worth of mail to share with you from the first half of this month. The other part, however, is very much relieved I don’t have a mountain of a reply pile to tend to thanks to how busy I/we have been between my dad’s visit, Gabe’s birthday festivities, and several Logan related errands.

I’ll get to said happy mail momentarily, but I’d like to say that our visit with my dad went very well (and that we ate very well, too!), that Gabe’s birthday was a happy one, and that though Logan got a bit sick last week, all of the errands on his behalf went pretty smoothly.

May 4th: When the first few days of May were quiet, it was nice knowing I’d at least get a letter from Jody!

May 5th: Getting happy mail from Sarah has also been nice to expect rather regularly. Her Little Cards and our story came today.

May 6th: As for a letter from Kayla, that was a pleasant surprise.

May 8th: Some more mail– a letter this time– came from Sarah.

May 9th: It may have been Gabe’s birthday, but I was the one that got presents in the mail:

May 13th: Along with another letter from Jody were these other colorful pretties:

And there you have it! With any luck the rest of this month will have more letters (pretty or otherwise). All the best!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: April

3 May

I actually had the following ATCs by the time April was over, but A) I wanted to give the other adventurers time to get their sets yet, and B) my minor OCD tendencies liked the idea of posting this exactly a week after when I shared my Little Cards from March, haha. Without further ado…

Bunnies:

Romantic Comedies:

This hobby is like a box of chocolates– you never know what you’re going to get! I’m excited to see what comes via our Childhood Memory and Pirates themes, and letting you see them, too, when the time comes! Happy May!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

30 Apr

I almost forgot to post this post today, but better late than never, right?

April 15th: No mail to start off this mail call, but between seeing a bunch of my mom’s side of the family, and later animals at the Children’s Zoo, I don’t mind at all!

April 17th: Logan got a bunch of books from my mom while I got a Figi’s order from my dad and a couple letters from Sarah, too.

April 18th: Another book came for the Loganator, starring Biscuit! Woof, woof!

April 19th: A batch of Bunny Little Cards were waiting with Pablo for me.

April 20th: After a couple days without letters, I got a couple thanks to Jody and Sarah.

April 21st: While Pablo had another batch of Bunnies, Manolo had my Dr. Seuss set of Little Cards, a letter from Allison, and my latest stamp order, too.

April 26th: After several days without mail, Pablo hooked me up with another two batches of Little Cards, and Manolo hooked me up with another letter from Sarah.

April 27th: Sort of reversing from yesterday, I got one last batch of Bunnies but two letters from Sarah, haha. Oh! And there was also a letter from Jody.

April 28th: One of my Con/Dom gnomes from ages ago made it back home thanks to Othella.

April 29th: Last but not least in the mail this month was a Postcard from Wonderland, also thanks to Othella.

April 30th: The boys and I had quite the special delivery earlier– a visit from my dad! We’ll be seeing more of him over the next week or so, so you can expect some details come my next Hail the Snail post. You also can expect another Little Cards post soon since I have all of April’s now 😀 As always, I appreciate your patience and for reading this little blog of mine about little things that make me happy.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: March

26 Apr

This morning it has been finalized that 5 of my fellow “adventurers” will be making ATCs reflecting a childhood memory, and 7 of us will be making ones in honor of the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie. While we make May’s Little Cards (and I continue to wait for the last of April’s to arrive), I thought I’d hold us all over with the sets from March!

Enchanted:

Dr. Seuss:

Quick shout out to Gabe for helping me with the burnt edges of my Lumiere ATCs in the first group! And in case you’re curious, the Green Eggs and Ham ATC in the second group is also my creation 🙂

Although I don’t have all of the Bunny and Romantic Comedy cards from April yet, I’d still like to say that this month marks a year and a half of Little Cards on Big Adventures! When Jenn and I made our group, I don’t think I really expected us to still be picking out themes come 2017, but now I definitely hope we have at least another 18 months of ATCs, hehe.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
