They are little pieces of each of you...time you have invested...little gifts...

I agree. :^)

Thanks for this wonderful post, Linden Leaf!

I agree that art mirrors their maker. I understand the sentiment that you think of the person that the card is for as you make it too. I feel that way about quilts. When I sew for someone, I think of the person while making the quilt. Then, when someone uses their quilt, it's like wearing a hug.

My "just paper" comments are usually for people who are struggling to fulfill a commitment due to things happening in their life. Ultimately, they are "just paper". That doesn't mean they aren't REALLY AWESOME paper.

That's good to know, because when I join or list a tracker I choose my image from what calls to my deepest depths. A lot of times there's personal emotion or memory/experiences in my image choices.

I think most people that stick around in doing LTCs feel similarly. I do the same thing, I start to create the card, then change things based on how I think people would like it. It's been a while since I've done any, but maybe this fall, I'll make another set.

I was going to ignore this thread and chalk it up to random-ness. But, I'm sitting here next to a package I just got today. It was mailed out back on 4/24/17.

Have you tried brand new envelopes with clear tape and printed labels? Maybe that's an experiment you can do?

I had one ltc that was made for a tribute to a letterboxer who had passed. It reminded me how brave she was and I actually put it on my bedside table while I recovered from a difficult surgery. Some ltc's are fun, some are cute and some are awe inspiring....something for everyone. I wish my life had room for them, but it is not in the cards right now.

It should be a very fun event! Now I can't give away our secrets, but I do realize that music is an important element in video games. ;)
I hope you can participate in one way or another!

Then I guess you think I smell like the kitty litter my cats use, since they like walking all over my LTC envelopes. Or maybe you think I smell like what's buried in the kitty litter.

Are you suggesting that sniffing envelopes of LTCs to decide what the sender smells like . . . is considered a "problem"??? Doesn't everyone do that??
