    Priority mail has been weird!
    Every piece of priority mail that I have received post-Covid, has taken LONGER to reach me than regular mail.

    Although I did receive something yesterday that did get to me "Overnight" delivery.
    But it was sent "FedEx" so I need to do some research on "FedEx" versus "Priority Mail".

    I hosted a swap something like this in 2019. I made cards from my mailbox. So far none of those players have shown up.

    Let me show you my mail box.

    I have 2 great mail carriers that replaced a woman I really did not like. She was a PITA.

    Anyway January 30th, the older of the two carriers, told me that he was so far behind. I was surprised. He said the PLANT was closed, I do think he means the distribution center, or the sorting center. He said lots of covid sick wokers. He said very few of the mail carriers are sick but many of the counter help at the Substations. Which is just a fancy name for the closest PO office. Phoenix is pretty big so there are post offices all over. 3 within 5 miles of me.

    Thanks so much for posting a picture!!!!
    What an AWESOME mailbox...so cool, and behind the mailbox is your FAVORITE flower.

    Oh wait, I remember this card. Didn't you say your daughter's boy friend, or not boyfriend any longer but when he was, built that sunflower for you???

    If you made cards from this pic and none of your players showed up for your swap, you may already have your cards made for my swap. HINT, HINT

    Unfortunately, I have been hearing that same story about Ohio, Texas, Minnesota, and it is not good.

    Yes, my daughter who is now 29, had a boyfriend named Teddy when she was 16. He made the sunflower mailbox holder. So the mailbox sits on the sunflower holder.


    I dont have any of those photos left from the swap. I am going to lurk and see if I can come up with a new idea.

    Please join the others on the Lurkers Couch.
    It is MINUS 17 degrees so there are blankets and comforters.
    Plus, I am baking chocolate cookies later today to go with my SPECIAL Minnesota Hot Chocolate.
    Hang around.

    If your muse is not cooperating, check out some Vintage Valentines, from your stach, if you collect them, or look on line if you don't have a valentine collection, to get some ideas.
    I found several featuring mailboxes
