Color My Mailbox ~ Tickled Pink!

Struggling to think of something to write about? I am often plagued by this dilemma. When it comes to my mailbox magic I try to think creatively.  You know, "out of the box."  Sometimes I even think out of the crayon box!

I recently wrote a letter with the color RED as my over all theme.  I decorated a piece of white paper with a RED and white polka dot tape border.

 I, of course, wrote with RED ink and added a few RED illustrations.  I wrote about everything RED in my life at that moment.  I described my RED t-shirt and the story behind it.

I wrote about the RED apple I was eating which segued nicely into my favorite aspects of fall.  I included a clipping from a magazine of a book review with RED in the title which I thought sounded interesting.  I also included an copy of a paining by Janet Hill of a woman in a RED gown that I found beautiful.

It was a lovely letter that I hope will tickle my recipient's mailbox mean pink! 
See? Anything can make a fun and interesting theme for a letter! Start thinking creatively! 

Go postal, everybody!! And color someone's day with magic!!
