It's so worth it though, heading off to another boring day of work but finding a small envelope in my mailbox with my name on it! The cards I've received lately have been pretty high-calibre! I love each individual style; some people send postcards with little stories of their life, others even add extra supplies, and some cards are just tossed into plain envelopes in a minimalist fashion. I guess that's most of the fun.
Also, may I add that you all have such diverse and interesting stamps?? It pleases me greatly to receive letters with pictures of turtles and cartoons and plants on them! When I buy stamps they pull a booklet out of a hidden drawer and take my money. I don't get to choose a style or subject, and the designs never change! You're always going to get pictures of space shuttles or open Canadian fields on my letters. Sorry about that.
