Exclamation Creative Mail Ideas...

I get a lot of PMs and questions about what I send in the mail, so i just wanted to share some of my ideas with all of you! A lot of you have liked them..and found them really helpful so i figured I'd post them here! I hope you (and your loved one ) enjoys them!


1. I cut out a tracing of my hand...but I ended up making two cut outs...and I taped them down to maroon construction paper...and I had both hands at the ends of the paper (bottom corners) and they were over lapping so it looked like we were holding hands..and I added in all the fancy touches.. Like his tattoo on his hand.. and on MY hand I put my culatta ring (that I face IN meaning im taken)...and at the top I put the poem "We were given two hands two hold two legs to walk two ears to listen..but why only one heart?"..then in side HIS hand I put "because the other was given to someone else" and in MY hand it said "for us to find" and inbetween BOTH hands (the little opening) I put a little heart.Then on the back I put quotes about love and holding hands and hearts ...etc..

2) then I had this TINY TINY little envelope and on the outside I put a "HOMECOMING" sticker on it..with things like "I'm so proud of you!" and "You made it!" with streamer stickers etc..and INSIDE the LITTLE envelope was a MILLION golden confetti pieces... really...a million and inside was a little piece of paper that said "homecoming prayer" and I wrote a little prayer to God saying how thankful I was for this opportunity..etc etc...and I had a little piece of heart paper..and i put "Homecoming wish" and on the back i wrote directions. 1. make a wish. 2.kiss the heart and put back in envelope. 3. shake it up ..and so I made a wish on the heart..kissed it and shook it up...so he does the same..so were wishing on the same heart...(we have a "thing" with wishing together.. )

3. I made him this paper thing..i cant really explain it...it had a quote that said "with love miracles can happen" (or something to that effect) and it said things like "my life" "my smile" "my reason" "my strength" etc etc etc...and I wrote "you" all over it in pen so its hard to see...but it means that much more when he realizes it...and I tied pink ribbon to it..and on the ribbon was a little tag that said "my wish" (and if you look at it...it looks like my wish is everything on the paper thing..)

4. I sent him OLD things..from previous letters..to help remind him that we are DESTINY..and utterly meant to be...things he LOVED but sent them back to me when he was transferred so they wouldnt get lost..so yeah i sent em again and little "signs" we get...between me and him.. Things that get resent seem to bring out emotions from the initial reaction and it brings back happy memories.

5. I made a little tag..with this red heart on it..and I put "I, ____ vow to be here in good times and bad. This is to remind _____ of my UNDYING love for him." And I signed it..and tied another ribbon to it...and on the ribbon I put the wedding band and engagement ring he sent to me a couple months back (just the pic.)

6. I always put little odds and ends like quotes and hearts..etc..to also put in the envelope..

7.I always say "I found my noah" (from the notebook)...I love that movie and it reminds me of us..well..I copied the pic of them dancin in the street..and put quotes from the movie under it...then I sent him an explanation of WHY "I found my noah" and my friend DREW the same pic of them dancing with the lyrics to "I'll be seeing you" in the backround..

8."A dedication to Love:

This piece of paper is a dedication to love, and all that comes with it. I promise to love you fully, no matter what comes our way. This is solid proof that I belong to you and I will always be dedicated to you. Over bumps and bridges, across miles and highways, I vow to remain yours. Through prison bars and barbed wire fences I promise to stay dedicated. Between laughter and tears I assure you that I am here until the very end. If ever one of us starts to stray, let us be reminded that our love is destiny and we are truely meant to be. By signing this I vow to NEVER give up..no matter what life throws at us. I promise to love you in good times and bad, for richer or poorer..in sickness and in health.. 'til death do us part.
X____________ X_____________"
you sign it...then send it and have him sign it..(make it look like an official contract...put it on some nice paper..decorate it..etc)

9.I took a piece of printer paper (just white..but u can use any color) and starting at the top I put "why do i love you?" (normal size writing) and after that I put. "i love you because you turn my world upside down" (and because I wrote it at the top by the time I got to the words "you turn" I would of had to of went to the next line..but instead I turned the paper and wrote on the side so it went DOWN the page.)..and I kept going with alllllll the reasons why I love him...and the words had a spiral effect. and the words worked their way INTO the page...get it? and by the time I was almost finished I realized in the middle was the PERFECT size for a picture...and I put a pic of me in the middle and the last reason was "i love you because your are _______(his WHOLE name)...I hope I explained it good...


10.I wrote FAITH in big letters on a circular piece of paper..and wrote Faith is...fsjhgsutjhglskdjflskdgjdf (define your definition of faith) and kept the words in a circular motion. And every other thing was Faith is hgksjh. Love is kjdghskjh. Faith is jhskjg. Love is jghkgjh. get it? And at the end it said. I LOVE you and I have FAITH in us. and it was one little circle of words...

11. I have made crossword puzzles, word searches, and even quizzes

Aside from the above ideas I wanted to add in that cards are extemely important. They make cards for everything now and I never have trouble finding one to relate




I hope everyone enjoys my ideas! I'll post more as I think of them!

BooBoo<3: Thank you for your cute ideas. I really, really love them!

Unfortunately MSP is very strict too. He told me that they freak out in the mail room if I would send him letters like the ones you mentioned. No glue, no perfume..bla bla bla...hate it!

wow those are really creative ideas... which i am so gonna try. what i am doing now is i went to half prized books and look for postcards and found some great boxed ones: couples kissing (set of 40 with no repeates) impression art (set of 24), and modern art (set of 24) they were really inexpensive less than $5.00 each! and i just put motivational, love, biblical quotes and send them to him. He really loves the pics and the quotes

No problem i actually got the idea from my sis. Her husband is stationed in Iraq and she sends him postcards all the time to lifts his spirts and offer inspiration. So i was like why cant i send them to my hubby??? i want lift his spirits and offer him inpiration. And the way i feel is that there is alot of beauty in the world and unfortunately hes missing out on it physically but he can always have it mailed to him. I also got a couple friends from outta town mail me postcards from the cities they are from and i send them to him!! he loves it!!! Im from dallas by the way if you want to try it

I got the idea to print some pics for MWI... My addresse is female, and her reaction was very positive.
Why?
Because I live in Europe and I don't live in the country of my heritage. So I can send some pics with some discription from at least 2 different countries. So for a little while, my friend who got locked up can take her mind outside... I think, that's very important and I am not sure, if I can really imagine, how it must feel like for a woman to be out of her element, if I can say that in that way. But my aim is to let her think off another world, even for a little moment... Hoping it helps her a little bit makes me happy.

So each letter, I am still going to send, I will send some other pics, not as foto, just printed on normal white paper, copy paper or I just got some white thin paper, because when I send a couple of piece of paper, the letter becomes heavy and expensive, because I have to send it by airmail.

To put any paintings in it, this can be an idea for later.

Default My creative mail ideas

I have a letter kit. In it are: glitter glue, construction paper, stationary ( 6 different kinds) markers, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, a stencil with different shapes, 8x11 envelopes with the metal claps, large envelopes from the post office with different designs, regular envelopes, glitter foam paper, a bag of assorted shapes. I purchased this all from Wal-Mart so it was not that expensive. Each week this is what I do:

1-I alternate sending a 8x11 envelope that I decorate on the outside with a designer envelope from the post office.

2- I get magazines that he would be interested in-Men's Fitness, football magazines etc. and cut out articles and put in the large envelope but NOT ALL AT ONCE. I try and stretch the articles out. I also send articles that are from COSMO that pertain to us.

3-I go to hotel lobbies and get brochures of places we have been or would like to go to

4-I print out lyrics from songs we love and new songs that would describe us on stationary

5-I cut articles from local magazines, newspapers etc

6-I make at least 3 cards and include 1 or 2 that are store brought

7- I make a word scramble making different colored hearts that he has to put in order to come up with the word. I put the hearts in a small envelope and in another envelope I put a clue and the answer

8- I cut out pictures of our favorite foods and we have a meal together-breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night snack. I also write an intimate poem and then make a picture of our after sex meal

9-I write a few letters and tell him how I came up with the theme of the package

10-I spray a blank piece of paper with his favorite perfume.

I put all this together in a "package" each week-A LARGE ENVELOPE, and mail it on Monday. In between I mail postcards, letters, cards etc, so that he has mail everyday. Is it time consuming? YES!!! But when I think of what he has to deal with everyday, I KNOW IT'S WORTH IT!

HE LOVES the fact that he gets mail everyday. He tells me it gives him something to look forward to. Everything is not always smiles and roses but if I for every "bad letter"-bad day at work, in traffic etc, I make sure I send a positive letter.

I have also found that Borders sells used books that are quite reasonable. My recent order was $27.00 vs. $68.96 brand new and I send him books at least once a month.

I purchase disposabe cameras about twice a year and send to his children/mom/sister with return postage to me. I then make assorted frames, bookmarks, etc.

so i was bored in my room just in sweats and a hoodie on and i look at my camera and got in the mood to take silly picture i put my camera on my desk and angled to fit my body and took all silly picture jumping, dancing, booty shots,.... lol.. of me and i got some cute paper made them picture wallets size bc my printer makes them like that, and cut the edges of the pic paste them on the paper and i put something like "returning the way you make me smile " and i put sticker that talk about smile and love ...
i had to take that to target to make it into a picture bc i got it returned so i made a 5X7 pic and sent it back out :

i did another similar to that one but in a bathing suit "sexy" not showing to much at all and the sticker talk about love only and i put a little message at the bottom

and i also got some pretty paper and put 10things that i was talking to God about US and sent it to him in a really big envelope ...i mean really big envelope ...lol.. everyone made fun of him and he told me that it was the first big envelope anyone saw while being in prison ...lol

just a few that ive done

keep them coming

im not creative at all but like boo said put some slow jam and you'll be surprise with the outcome

the good feeling comes in sending it out, my man loves everything i send him...dont matter how mushy it is...
