Snail Mail

snail mail watercolor card

Who remembers the nursery rhyme about what little boys are made of?

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails. (What is a snip anyway???)

Well – not sure about a snip, but I thought a snail would be fun to paint in watercolor, and I had a little boy I needed to send a birthday “snail mail” card to.

It was fun to make a colorful snail for a very colorful little boy.

Don’t underestimate the power of snail mail….

Doesn’t it make your day when you receive a card or note in the mailbox?  It is so rare anymore, but oh the joy – oh the appreciation we feel when we receive a handwritten – or better yet a handmade note or card.  Right?

Want to do something EXTRAordinary?  Send someone a handwritten “snail mail” note or card today?  I guarantee you will make their day!  🙂

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. “In the earliest known versions, the first ingredient for boys is either “snips” or “snigs”,[6] the latter being a Cumbrian dialect word for a small eel.” – wikipedia

    We used to say it, “Snakes and snails”

  2. What a perfectcard for a little friend, Jodi! Sending notes on handmade cards truly makes my heart sing. It’s fun to think about each person the whole time I am making each card. (It feels like a little visit.) The ink is barely dry before I pop the card into an envelope and mail it off to someone special! ♡
