My Pinterest addiction for cute packages and kawaii paper products borders on slightly obsessive. “Post more! Share more! I want to see more cute pictures of happy mail!” I shout to the computer screen late at night when I cannot sleep. So here is my very first #HappyMailHappyHour held at JamaRoo Kids Studio in Lower Pacific Heights for a small group of paper addicts and card collectors. The studio space is still bright and cheery after hours, perfect for gathering a gaggle of gals or bevy of bloggers before the weekend begins! What a fun time we had last Thursday evening .
A love of stationery means a love of playing with gorgeous cards pressed, painted, and printed by a variety of makers, made even more personal with our own special touches. Seeing how each guest personalized her mail for mom, sister, friends, and her beau was enough to make anyone remember how precious a piece of mail can be. Why not send a letter today or stick a note in somebody’s pocket and add a bit of extra pizzaz? Particular encouragement and inspiration for this party came from Egg Press and Hello Lucky’s joint venture #write_on. Learn more about it here.

Our group of lovely ladies played with an assortment of cards by my friends at Rock Scissor Paper, Julie Ann Art, Pennie Post, Mint Chip Ink, b-spired, Ink and Smog Editions, Egg Press and Hello Lucky. We washi-taped, stamped, drew, strung, and stuck to our hearts’ content with a collection of colored pens and paper pieces (origami hearts, tags, stickers, baby envelopes, etc.) taking it from regular mail to Happy Mail! Thank you to Beach Crab Photography for the photos as well as to my great guests for sharing their positive energy and pictures.
