Little Cards: November

7 Dec

After making ATCs per Little Cards from one October to the next, Jenn and I decided we’d mix it up a little last month since our fellow adventurers deserved a break. We had a sole anniversary theme where everyone who wanted to participate could revisit any theme we’ve done in the past.

As of last week, here is what I had!

Apparently Junk Food was a popular theme because not only did two people revisit it, there’s even a square with french fries on my ATC in the bottom left corner. And yes, that Water card is actually index size, but that mermaid is awesome enough I’m letting it slide this time, hehe.

Looking forward to seeing the 7 North Pole ATCs and the 6 Christmas Carols ones December will have in store for us, and sharing them with you here.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

November 18th: After several days with no mail, I was ecstatic to not only get Sarah’s Little Cards, but my Wonderful Owlcrate!


November 19th: And after even more time passed with no mail specifically from Jody, she sent the rewrite I got today.

November 20th: Rose’s letter was waiting for me when I stopped and saw Pablo.

November 21st: The stories Sarah and I have been writing together came back into my possession.

November 22nd: Also now in my possession? Some more presents I ordered via Amazon and these awesome new leggings!


November 23rd: Prior to getting some Little Cards and Whitney’s letter from Pablo, I finished reading Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I am so grateful to Owlcrate for acquiring it because I just loved reading how the Queen of Hearts came to be.

November 24th: There might not have been any mail, but I’m pleased to report our Thanksgiving was still a happy one.

November 25th: The Christmas-friendly address labels I ordered from Vistaprint arrived today. It was the definition of perfect timing.

November 26th: Last week ended with a letter (and fun extras) from Ashley.

November 28th: Manolo had a Family Fun magazine for me, while Pablo had some not-so-little Little Cards.

November 29th: Last but not least, I got a letter from Sarah.

Hope November was kind to you, and that no matter how cold December gets, that there’s people who give you reasons to feel warm and fuzzy.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Not that anyone besides me probably minds, but this should have been posted on the 15th. I was so under the weather earlier this week that I never made the connection that Tuesday was the date it was, let alone that I was forgetting to post my latest mail call. It wasn’t until I was writing up yesterday’s blog post that I realized I skipped anything– whoops!

October 31st: It was on Halloween that I received the Disney Villains set of Little Cards, and my little ninja got all of this– minus the remote:


November 3rd: With some help from my mother-in-law, Logan sent me a letter❤

November 4th: Today’s happy mail was my latest LaPapierre order.

November 5th: It was on Saturday that I got my first “official” letter of the week thanks to the lovely Justine.

November 7th: I got both of the Sarah stories, and the Loganator got a bunch of pictures from his Papa Halvorson.

November 8th: Not only did one of my Amazon orders arrive, so did my first ever LulaRoe one!



November 9th: Pablo had two ATCs from a private trade for me.

November 10th: More goodies came via Amazon today, along with several goodies from Sarah.

November 12th: There were four more packages today! Logan got two– one from each of my parents, and the other two were addressed to me. One may have had more LulaRoe leggings, haha.

November 14th: One of my best friends from high school sent me a letter; her name is Ashley, but to me she will always be Nichia, and will therefore be called that whenever she’s mentioned in one of these mail calls😀

And speaking of these mail calls, this one is an overdue wrap!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Postcard Posse Sign Ups

16 Nov

Do you live in the US and like receiving postcards? Well then this blog post is for you! This actually isn’t my first post like this. I started the Postcard Posse last summer, and now I’d like to open it up to more people, as I have vacancies to fill.

First of all, I just want to say that if you decide to sign up, that is literally all you have to do. I do not expect to receive any postcards in return, since in my mind you’re already doing me a favor by helping me downsize my massive stash.

And it’s because of how many postcards I have to give, there will be no rhyme or reason when it comes to what you’ll get and when you’ll get it. In the past, I’d send miscellaneous postcards to people in the order I wrote their information down on the days I didn’t have any other outgoing mail. This will likely be what I continue to do.

So if you want to get sporadic postcards from me, send your address to me at with “Postcard Posse” in the subject line between now and November 30th.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. And don’t hesitate to send those emails either😉

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: October

2 Nov

You know what I had by the end of October? All of last month’s Little Cards! I’m really proud of our members for getting their ATCs to Jenn and I around the time we wanted to have them by, and now I’m the proud owner of two new sets!

Dia de los Muertos:


Disney Villains:


I’ll tell you now that my post for November’s Little Cards will be a bit different. After going on these “big adventures” from last October until last month, Jenn and I decided we’d do a sole swap where anyone who doesn’t want a break can revisit any of the themes we’ve done before. In addition to us, there are three people who are going to be making ATCs this month so my post will likely come fast, but it will be smaller than usual. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, though!

Have a great month!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~

31 Oct

This should have been posted yesterday, but Sundays are my one guaranteed day with Gabe this time of year so blogging was the last thing on my mind. #SorryNotSorry.

October 15th: Manolo had Erika’s letter, and Pablo had Rose’s along with a postcard from Nancy.

October 17th: I not only got another letter from Sarah, but I got her first addition to our second story. This one is the origin story for one of the stuffed animals we adopted, hehe.

October 19th: The Loganator got popcorn per my cousin’s fundraiser, and I got a letter from Jody.

October 20th: Thanks to Pablo I got Charlotte’s batch of Little Cards.

October 21st: The Harry Potter set of Little Cards arrived now along with my latest stamp order.

October 22nd: A Toys R Us catalog came and was hidden before the Loganator could find it, hehe.

October 23rd: Pablo had another batch of Little Cards for me, but from Linda this time.

October 24th: This week started on a high note. Logan got his latest Which Way USA magazines while I got FOUR things from Sarah and ONE postcard from TWO pen pals– Kari and Rose.

October 25th: I now got Jenn’s batch of Little Cards. (One to go at this point!)

October 26th: The original story came back from Sarah now.

October 27th: While Logan got a Halloween-friendly package from my mom, I got letters from Jody and Kayla thanks to Manolo. As for Pablo, I got the last of the Dia de los Muertos ATCs per Little Cards and these ATCs per a trade:


October 29th: I heard from Ashley, and got a bunch of Halloween stickers in the process!

October 30th: Pablo had more ATCs from trades for me, and a letter from Whitney, too.

I hope your Halloween is a happy one, and that Manolo has more treats than tricks for me today, hehe.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~


Little Cards: September

24 Oct

As promised in my Orange You Glad post, here are my Little Cards from last month now that I have them all!



Harry Potter:


The total amount of Little Cards I have is now 206, though once I have the 7 Dia de los Muertos ones and the 5 Disney Villain ATCs, that count will be up to 218! Hopefully I’ll have them all soon and can show you them soon after.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
