Most of my incoming mail this month has been Christmas cards from old friends and extended family. People who we only hear from at Christmas (or when I occasionally log onto Facebook - something I don't do as often as I probably should) who aren't into letter writing or mail art so I haven't really been taking pictures of my mail. Here are two though that I did scan: the first is from a US service member who responded to a letter we submitted through Operation Gratitude. It's an awesome 3-D postcard from Dubai, but I'm afraid our scanner doesn't do it justice. This is the first 3-D postcard I've seen since our local stationers went out of business (they carried some cool ones of the redwood forests and the Golden Gate Bridge - I miss that store). :-(
The second one is from a fellow snail mail lover who sent a letter in this cute pre-decorated envelope. I hardly ever see stationery like this anymore so am wondering if she found it in a thrift store. I don't think I've ever seen any stationery at our Goodwill store but did recently buy a photo book of wolves for $2. I plan to make it into lots of envelopes in 2013.
I'm not Lutheran, although we do occasionally enjoy visiting the WELS church down the street from us, but I am really enjoying this Christian Christmas music that Lutheran Public radio is playing so wanted to share it here. (I can only handle Jingle Bells & Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer so many times. =D) My understanding is that they'll be playing it 24 hours a day through Christmas.

I'm not sure where to put this blog or how to classify it. This blogger is a daughter of a friend and while I'm pretty sure she's a Christian, it isn't a Christian blog, or books & reading or letter writing & mail art. It's basically about their travels so I'm putting it here for now: Jen's blog: 3toGo
