Making mail magical again. Real mail. Remember that?

Abe's PeanutNo more pretending the Anthropologie catalog is a special delivery–kids deserve their own mailbox surprises. So I’m happy to have found a fun new service that combines original art and stories with good, old-fashioned stamps.

Abe’s Peanut
is an original venture by two sisters who loved sending postcards as
kids. Bringing together professional artists and storytellers, they
create a different story each month told through four postcards. It’s not cheap, but it is a super birthday gift, considering your child will receive a hand-addressed, gorgeously designed postcard about
once a week.  And there are no batteries, no disks, no power cords.
Just kids, reading, and art.

I’m imagining all the homeschool lessons or keepsake scrapbooks a crafty mom could devise out of this.

My daughter’s jiujitsu academy sent her a birthday postcard, and
she liked it so much that she sleeps with it under her pillow. I can’t
imagine how excited she would be to find Abe’s Peanut postcards in the
mail and get an original story along with that photo of a tiger in a
birthday hat.~Delilah
