End of January - the daily project is almost over

 Here are some of this months letters. They are numbered for the day that they were sent out.

In some cases, I found envelopes that corresponded to the dates. When that happened, I was pretty excited.

I'll post more of the envelopes soon as I up load them.

Have you thought about doing a daily project? Have you completed one.

A thirty day project is quite easy to accomplish, I discovered.

This spring, I'm hoping that there'll be another Creative Sprint and if there is, I hope you'll join me in doing it.

January 2018 - my daily project

I started my new project.
I'm writing a letter each day of the month (or more than one) and mailing it out using a vintage First Day Cover.

I was given a lot of these envelopes by a friend who "inherited" them from her husband's family. They collected them and stamps when the husband was young.  They are not valuable except, maybe, to a few people. I researched and found this out. I did find two envelopes with autographs by the person who designed the illustration and one with the illustrator and the Post Master General of that time. They sold for a bit of money and I donated the money to a charity.

So far, I've completed 21 letters. I'll post more of the images soon, but these photos give you a taste of what they look like. Oh, and I have to add current postage stamps.

Have you ever done a daily project? For a month, or longer?
