Boot camp letters

Do you remember me telling you that I signed up and am taking some online scrapbooking classes?
One class I am participating in the Big Idea Festival class going on at Big Picture Classes. The best part it's a free class. Every day there is a different teacher sharing their big idea about scrapbooking for a total of 14 days. It has been a wonderful experience so far. I am so inspired. The ideas are rolling around in my head. Today I made a goal to actually try work on some of the challenges and upload some of my work in the challenges as a chance to win a prize. I not the one who wins these types of things but I seem to be motivated by a challenge.
Day 1's challenge was: 'Make someone's day by putting pen to paper in the form of a personal note, letter, or handmade card then send it on it's way'.
This challenge seemed a little easy for me. 1. I have been writing weekly to my sister, Anika who is going through boot camp training right now. I try to add a little bit of me to her letters by embellishing the lower right corner before I send it on it's way. And 2. because I still love to send mail to my family. Plus I love when I receive mail back. I love the feeling you get when you go to the post office to pick up the mail and find a letter or card. Sure bets the never ending bills and junk mail that seem to fill the box up.
Do you write letters? Send someone happy mail? Do share.
