Please join me for the Angel Swap. Where putting smiles on people is our only goal!

Here is how it works:
Think of someone that could use Happy Mail. Life is short and we don’t always let people know how important they are to us! There are several reasons (this is just a few) why you might want someone to get happy mail from a “Card Angel”:
Thinking of you
Birthday or Holiday (maybe don’t have a lot of family)
Struggling with ________
Need prayers
Encouragement
Sympathy
Being a parent
Loss of employment
New Christian, old Christian, struggling Christian
Get Well

After signing up you will PM me the name and address of the person you want to receive the Happy Mail. Here are some ideas of what each participant needs to include in their PM. You can add additional information if you want.

1. What is the reason that you want this person to receive a card?
2. If you know what type of things the receiver likes (colors, flowers/no flowers, hobbies, their style, etc). This can help the “Card Angel” make the card…doesn't mean they will use it but some like to have this info. If you don't know that is fine too.
3. The card is supposed to be signed "From a Card Angel" then you can make it Anonymous or state who it is from. Let me know if you want it Anonymous or Name known.
(Doesn’t have to be exact wording can be similar.)
Anonymous - signed “from a Card Angel.” Then a note that states “your name was entered into an Angel Card Swap by a Card Angel that was thinking of you”
Name known – signed “from a Card Angel” have a note inserted that states “______ requested that this card be sent to you”

When sign ups are no longer accepted I will mark the swap as closed and I will randomly assign Card Angels with a recipient. I will PM you the info for your card recipient.

If you sign up, you HAVE to check in ONCE A WEEK. If you are UNABLE to do that, please send me a PM so I know what's going on!


If you want to you may share the card that you are sending. We would love to see it!

Cards may be any size. Use your own unique style to bring a smile to someone's face. (Store bought cards are also accepted)

Sign-ups will be accepted until 01/05/18 - addresses will be given out starting the January 7th. You have until 01/06/18 to PM me your recipient info. You have until 01/31/18 to mail out your angel card to the person that you received.

Spread the word there might be more Card Angels out there that would like to spread Happy Mail!


TO ALL THE PARTICIPATING ANGELS!! As hostess I will randomly pick an angel and send her a card that month. So if you have not sent your address or you have moved please PM me your mailing address. It's okay if you don't want to but If you don't PM me your address you won't be entered in the random drawing.


NEW FEATURE
I will be posting a response from an angel card recipient each month to let you know how you've touched people. We may not always receive feedback but we ARE making a difference.


Random acts of Kindness done anonymously such as angel cards. Of course I do not do it for my blessing but to bless others. I think that is why we all do this swap.

Info received:
card mailed:

Participants:
1. Kayla
2. Nylene (Sarah)
3. Ro (JoLena)
4. Lorna (Tess)
5. Karen (Alta)
6. Marylou (Tom)

My New Year's resolution is to try and read the Bible every day. I have gotten a little lazy about it.
And of course get a job. God has one for me so I need to find it.

That's one for me to Lorna.

And to start being a LOT more thankful for the things that I've got.

Be more diligent with my sewing projects!

And I have a whole list of others.

STOP HITTING SNOOZE IN THE MORNING!

And I think if I manage to keep all those for this year I'll be very happy.

We are sanding and varnishing a desk today. A change is better than a rest.

Love and hugs to alL!

I don't have any specific goals. My husband and I are trying to take a minimalist approach to things. Harvey helped get us started, but it is now up to us as we move forward. Now, this does not mean I'm going to get rid of all of my scrappy stuff. It means that I will only keep those things in my life that have meaning to me. We are also visualizing the type of life we want and doing those things that helps us achieve that life. We are defining what brings meaning to our lives and eliminating the rest.

Karen, I can totally understand your thought process after what you & your family have been through. Sometimes we just collect to much "stuff".

Lorna & Kayla, getting into the word helps bring us closer to God.
I want to know Jesus more intimately & I want to know that I know when I hear from the Holy Spirit.

I am working as a volunteer at Shepherd's Hand which is a soup kitchen for the homeless & I have been humbled. Right now many of these guys are living down by the river & it has been cold at night. They are so grateful for food, laundry done, & getting showers. This experience has made me appreciate everything God has given to me!!

Have a good night sweet

Thank you so much sweet angels! I was shocked that I won as there are so many talented lovelies out there. I have no idea how they pick the winners, but they have a job for sure.

Not sure what I am going to buy, might wait a bit & see what kind of lovely new papers come out that I think I need!;))

Good morning ladies!

It is starting to warm up here and get back to our normal winter temperatures.

Congratulations Marylou!

Things are moving quickly with the house. The tile for the floor was dropped off yesterday. Painting is done. The tub to shower conversion has been completed. I believe kitchen cabinets might be going in today. I'm not holding my breathe, but I was told that they might be done 3-5 days earlier than was projected. I'm getting excited, but trying to hold that excitement in check. I'm going to IKEA today to get 2 rugs and look at a few other things.

Hey all! I'm still here. I will get out the addresses today yet.

I'm sorry for not being around here much lately but I feel overwhelmed with all the challenges that I always join. I keep telling myself that next month I'll take a break but the next month rolls around and I think to myself I'll be able to do it so I sign up and than I feel stressed into creating and that doesn't work for me. So I end up not checking in for days at a time. I think for February I will not join ANY challenges. I'll still host the angel swap but I need to lay off the other things for a while.

Just checking in. I understand over-scheduling and getting behind. It seems the hurrier I go the behinder I get. I started back to school today as a volunteer remedial reading tutor and added to our work with 12 Step Addiction meetings, I feel a bit over-scheduled. But I enjoy teaching both so my scrapping is the thing I find I give up when I am stressed. I'm hoping to get some time at the end of the week to get going on scrapping again.

Have a wonderful week all you sweet angels.

Karen, Alta will be blessed no matter what papers you chose. She will be shocked as well. She doesn't have much & will be so appreciative. Can't wait to see what you will create.

Have a blessed day sweet

Hiya Angels
We got snow for a long time last nite. We figured thered be several inches this morning but it was just enough to cover everything. Not sure bout the temp but its sunny and very pretty tday.

Ive had another round with a cold bug the last few days. So Ive been staying home. Im gonna stay home from work for a day or two or three or four... I have an appt to get my hair cut tomorrow, think Ill re-schedule.

Yes they are talking snow here in San Antonio too. The Temps are not supposed to get above freezing tomorrow. It is beautiful at the moment but the Temps will start dropping after the sun goes down. I am trying to figure out how I can put a warming light safely outside for the turtles and tortoises.
My sinus are still acting up. They say it is the Mt Cedar. Kicking my rear. I put vicks and peppermint oil on a wash cloth in the bottom of the shower and ran hot water on it. The vapors really helped me to breathe. I need to get my nails done but just can't muster up the energy. Less than 3 hrs sleep last night. Just made some Taco Soup. Yum!
Stay warm ladies. God bless you all

Hello sweet ladies....reading about all the cold & burr freeze temps makes me want to be on a sunny beach some where! Although, it has been chilly in CO we are way below our snow levels, but we often catch up in March & April, sure hope so.

Lorna, my son & family live in Crowley TX, I wonder what kind of weather they will get? Guess I had better check on them although seem to get more rain then anything.

Have you all heard the song, Bleed the Same by Mandesa? They are playing it a lot on K-love & I watched the video on youtube. I would send you the link, but not sure how to, sorry! Karen, when I watched it my heart broke & cried all over again as it is photo's from the flooding in TX. Such moving pics of people coming together to help each other.

If you watch it let me know what you think!!

My card goes out tomorrow!

Hey sweets! I am still here! Last week I was hardly ever in the house! And when I did get home in the evening I was pooped! So I just stayed away all week.

But I am back and I just finished cleaning my scrap area to get a fresh start tomorrow...Probably not until the evening though. My days are booked!

I know for many of you who know what winter really is might think that those of us in Texas are wimps, but when many people don't know how to drive on ice you can't blame us for shutting everything down. I do know what winter is having grown up in Nebraska and Utah, but after living in Houston for 17 1/2 years one tends to forget how to survive in the cold. School was cancelled yesterday and today as well as the office being closed for my husband. We did have a few flurries, but mostly it was freezing rain and ice. The girls did go outside yesterday to play in it. they made "snowballs" to throw at each other.

I lived 8n Houston 36 years. Now I am back in San Antonio. They reported 140 accidents yesterday. The ice seems to be melting today. They showed pictures from the highways yesterday and they were empty. My Tortoises seem to like my sunken tub. I am hoping that the turtles did okay with the warming light. We just aren't used to this constant freezing temps for this long. I am grateful that we have had power. A friend of mine in New Caney lost power last Thursday and still doesn't have it back. I think a friend of hers brought them a generator. She doesn't have a fireplace. When my son was little in the early 90s, we had a ice storm and no power for days. We slept on the couch with the fireplace going. We cooked in the fireplace too. Praise God we have power. I have not felt good and that would be bad. I haven't been in my craft room except to bring paper into my room to gaze over.

Even though it is still cold, the ice is melting and people are venturing out. I ran a few errands this afternoon, like to the post office to mail off my card. It should be there on Saturday.

Hi Lorna, I hope your turtles are alright! I hope you feel better soon. Is it still your allergies? I feel for people with that miserable problem.

I feel better now but am staying away from work and the oldsters that live there. It seems really strange how I was just mildly sick the last of Dec and now again this past week. Husband and a guy friend were really sick mid November but I didnt get anything until last of Dec. Same bug or different one? ...dunno. The guys both still have gunk with coughing. Theyve been talking about them and now with me not ever having been 'over it'.

Id wish for spring to hurry and get here but weve had such a mild winter...not much snow and hardly any of the deep cold we normally have. We need more snow. Bad!!

Hello Ladies,
I wandered over to this site because, yesterday, I received a beautiful card from one of you, Angels.

It was a very sentimental feeling knowing someone is thinking of you. My days are quite sad because I lost my dear brother, to Pancreatic Cancer, Nov. 27.

I just want to say, "Thank you", for what all of you do by making these cards and sending them. Thank you, for thinking of me, as well. It was truly appreciated.

Hugs and kisses to you.

JoLena

Good morning. With these cold temperatures and the city shutting down because of ice, my rebuild stalled. They are supposed to be back at it today and should be finished by the end of next week. I am so looking forward to moving back downstairs into my own room and into a real bed. The air mattress is getting old. My new craft table comes next week and I have plans for the office/craft room.

I have been searching for the right verse for my card. I found it this morning. Now to print it out and send it.

"...but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. " - Isaiah 40:31

Have a blessed day Angels

Karen, I talked to my son who lives in TX tonight & he said it has been pretty chilly! Of course they moved their 3 years ago from CO, so they are use to it. I hope they get your house done soon & things get back to normal!

Blessings sweet angels!!

Just flying through!

I will be away visiting friends and relatives for the weekend so most likely I won't be checking in at all until Monday morning. I was away visiting friends who live nearby yesterday evening so I didn't get any scrapping done at all.

But I had a great time!

Have a wonderful weekend my lovelies and I hope on Monday I will be able to update the front and create a card to go out Tuesday. But never know what the day will bring so I won't plan too much.

My grandma is in the hospital again. She can't seem to recover from whatever ails her. They did some more testing and we are currently waiting for the results. Though the doctor did already tell us that he is 95% sure that it is NOT cancer. But I guess there is still that 5% left that it COULD be. But I will not dwell on that.

Hello Angels!

We finally got snow in Utah. It was 58 degrees (a huge record here) yesterday until about 7 pm and then the snow started. It has been snowing since. We really depend on the snow in the mountains for our drinking and irrigation water in the summer, so as much as I hate the cold and ice, I'm glad we have finally had some snow.

My card is made and ready to send. I'll post a photo of it when it's daylight.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Wishing your grandma the best, Kayla.

Nylene, I'm glad you got snow. One of my Utah friends posted pictures of her girls making a snow couch.

I got my new craft table yesterday and I put 99% of it together by myself (it said you needed 2 people to do it). I love it! Everything should be finished this week. I have furniture and appliances coming this week. I'll post pictures when everything is done. Although, the office/craft room may not be complete. I still need a few more pieces of furniture.

Can't wait to see. I am so happy that you are finally getting things back to normal. And refreshed too. God turns bad things into wonderful blessings.

Kayla, I am glad that you can go visiting! So sorry about your grandma & hope the doctors can figure out what is going on. I know it is frustrating for you!

Karen, how exciting that you are getting your furniture & appliances soon. Of course, we know the craft table is priority! lol

Nylene, we were the same in CO, 57 yesterday & wind & cold today. We were suppose to get 1-3 inches & all we got was a dusting. The mountains are getting a lot!

I am cheering on the MN Vikings because I was born in MN. My Broncos were terrible this year!!

Just popping in for a quick check in.

One of my childhood friends had a baby on December 29th and the baby passed away this evening. She had a rare syndrome and had heart surgery before she was even born. She's been hooked up to machines since she was born and this evening Skylah passed on to her eternal home. Her suffering is over.

Hi sweet ones...I hope you all have a great weekend & the weather is warming up for most of you. They keep saying we are suppose to get snow, but haven't seen it yet. Towns around us have got some, but Montrose is in this little valley & misses us often. Lots in the mountains which is where we need it the most!!

Good morning!

The house is getting closer to being done. Appliances and furniture have been delivered. Cabinets and counter tops are in. The shower is being redone, the project manager was not happy with the tile work. There is a lot of little things that need to be done. The front door was supposed to be put in yesterday, but they haven't gotten it from the company yet where they ordered it. The ice storm we had last week here the city shut down for 2-3 days did not help. But things are getting closer to being done.

Hello my dear friends. I have been a terrible hostess this month! But I have so many things going on in my life right now that I just can't take the time to stop in like I should. I know how much you love making angel cards but I need to take a breather from sb.com. I will not be hosting this swap for a while so if one of you would like to step in than go ahead. I cannot tell you when I will be back.

Again I'm sorry and I HAVE been thinking of you but my life is just too full for being the hostess that you deserve.

I have my name for January written down and I WILL get her card sent I just don't know if it will be next week or the week after...

And thank you for the prayers for my friend.

Kayla, prayers for peace. You are a wonderful person to have started this swap. We have all had life throw us a curve ball. Big hugs sweet angel.

If anyone takes over for the next few months, please let me know. Maybe we can switch off a month at a time to keep this wonderful swap that Kayla created going while she takes a break.
