July's Theme is Trashy!

Hello again friends!

Can you believe it's July already? As much as many of us may want 2020 to just hurry up and be over with, it would be nice if it slowed down just a little for the next couple of months and let us soak up all that summer sweetness. It may not be a summer of weddings and family reunions, but it might just be the perfect summer to find a shady spot under a tree or to sit on the porch with a tall glass of something icy and write some letters.

Sounds kind of nice, doesn't it? That said, since we've all been pretty cooped up for almost four months at this point, we're thinking you might have been doing some tidying and organizing (and maybe even some online shopping) and are left with piles of paper and packaging lying around that you keep meaning to do something with. Or perhaps a stack of old magazines and catalogues that you want to look through one more time before donating or recycling, just in case?

Well for this month's theme, we're inviting you to do something with all those bits and pieces you've been saving... 

The Junk Mail Challenge is all about turning trash into treasure! 

Repurpose, reuse and upcycle your junk mail, cereal boxes, catalogues, or whatever else you have on hand into pretty mail. 

We can't wait to see all the creative ways you interpret the theme!

So how does this whole monthly mail challenge thing work? 

It's quite simple really. We'll reveal a theme and if it inspires you, you'll create pretty mail based on that theme. Mail it off to someone you know then post images of your pretty mail on Instagram using the tag #prettypostal.

By taking part in our monthly mail challenges, you'll connect with people both on and offline, get inspired, try new things and spread good cheer. We'll share #prettypostal images we love through our Instagram feed and stories. See you there!
