CLOSED -- [USA Lottery] 5 Cards in Envelope

In order to de-stash some of my accumulating cards, I’ve decided to host a lottery! This lottery is for USA postcrossers only, so I can send more envelopes at the cheaper domestic rate. If you are a non-USA postcrosser and want to participate, please check out the same offer here (but international and fewer winners, sorry!):

This is a lottery to receive 5 cards in an envelope. There will be TEN winners selected on Sunday, July 2 around 2:00 PM EST (GMT-4).

I will DM the winners to see how many cards they want written and how many they want unwritten. I will use your profile to select the cards to send you.

For posting, all you need to put is your number, your username, and (optional) what’s something someone said to you that you’ve never forgotten?

My grandmere used to say, One day you will grow up. Whatever you want to be is fine. If you’re going to be a ditch-digger, be the best dam* ditch-digger you can be.

She also told me never to be intimidated by anyone because of their fame or prestige - that everyone puts their pants on the same way, one leg at a time.

I repeat this whenever I’m having a bad day to change my perspective and reframe everything in a positive light.

Thank you so much for the lottery!

Thanks for this fun lottery! I love surprises!
My aunt, with whom my cousins and I would often road trip, always said, “You’re never lost. You’re always somewhere.” I’ve repeated this to my kids and travel pals (even recently) more times than I can count. (I guess that says something about my navigational skills–or lack thereof, haha).

#19 @thetinylibrarian

No one told me this, but I read it and have never forgotten it! “Remember when you wanted what you currently have.” Helps me stay grateful :relaxed:
