About

Yes, I am a housewife. A born housewife. I have a love affair with words. I've written letters all my life. I love writing letters. People love receiving letters. I love meeting new people. My family and friends often say: She doesn't know a stranger. All too often I hear people reminisce wistfully about the handwritten letters of their past. I'd like to tip the mailbox balance, one little envelope at a time. So let's try this thing.

This is your red letter day.

**********************************************

FAQ I might ask if I were you!

May I ask you a question or two in the notes to seller?

Yes, you may. You may also tell me something about the recipient if you like. If you have a topic that's on your mind and would like the letter to include some thoughts on that, let me know.

Do I have to write back to you?

No. My letters are for your mailbox and your delight.

May I write back to you?

Oh yes. I welcome return letters and am treasuring all I have received to date.

ps. I have learned during this first year that personalized feedback ~ either via etsy's feedback feature or convo/email is essential to my ability to continue with this venture. I sincerely thank those of you who have taken the time to share with me your heartfelt responses to my letter packet receptions. ox to you all.

How long must I wait for my letter?

I do not pre-write, design, gather or construct any part of your letter until after I receive your order. I do my best to have your letter ready and mailed within 6-9 working days of your order. Because I am dedicated to the natural writing and artistic processes of this endeavor, my production has limitations. If I have more orders than I can fill in the 6-9 day time period or if my shop is on hiatus, I will post the details in my shop announcement. Thank you for your understanding.

May I copy your letters or artwork?

I respectfully ask you to honor my copyright notice above.

Do you mail internationally?

Yes, I do. The flying housewife travels around the world right from my desk at home. Please be sure your etsy address is correct AND written in the proper format. I am not familiar with every country's postal format and I want my letter to reach you.

Will you write to anyone about anything?

No. My writing is meant as one small step toward a friendlier and positive planet. I choose to write or not based on my definition and perspective of that concept.

Are your letters pre-written?

No. I have no idea what I will write before I hear from you. Just like my artwork and my novel in progress, I just see what comes about and take it from there. That's the joy of it for me.

Will you send Birthday or other special occasion cards or letters?

Yes I will. I'll be adding additional themed letter listings. If you have a request and do not see your idea lisited, please convo me.

Isn't a handwritten letter from the heart from a total stranger an oxymoron?

I'm not a stranger. I'm just a friend you haven't met yet.

ProJecT SNoWFLaKe: One housewife on a mission impossible ~ loving our little blue swirling planet.

My art is based on recycling and reusing because I am obsessed with responsibility. That's a longer story which, extremely simplified, led me here. I enjoy the challenge of saving would be disposable goods and transforming it into who-knows-what? ProJecT SNoWFLaKe is an extension of my philosophy.

Beginning March 17, 2010 you can help me clean up our world, one little step at a time.

For every purchase in any & all of my etsy shops, I will pick up a baker's dozen worth of litter or spend 13 minutes throwing an eye, whichever comes first. I will keep a tally, post it in my shop announcements, and write about my venture on my blog.

Where does the SNoWFLaKe come in? I chose that name for several reasons. It seems like a SNoWFLaKe'S chance in hell that one housewife can make a significant difference. But here's my impetus.{Captain Charles Moore on Letterman}:

Please access & view Part 2 as well.

And here's my inspiration. {Paul Rokich} I first read about this man and cut out the Readers Digest story in the 1980s. I still have it. I found this, which is similar:

Additionally, I began a novel 6+ years ago, called Snowflake N.H. {It's a sign.} and my dear husband and daughter have been waiting on tenterhooks for the whole story. I am on chapter 9. I find it hard to devote time to it. So, this challenge serves as an additional incentive for me as I will devote 13 minutes to Snowflake for every item sold. {See Evan and Scout smiling.}

Many sellers donate a % of their profits to causes. My idea is a take-off on this practice. I'll be the action. It's a housewife thing. We'll see how it goes.

THaNK YOU for your support and, if you LoVe this idea, please spread the word.

Just doing my small part to save the earth and spread the treasures of the past for joy in our future. Please visit my other etsy shops to see more of my recycled & upcycled art with heart, my vintage & supplies shop and to learn more about me.
