Unlocking the calendar...

Grab some colored pencils and cardstock and dust off that jank printer you only use for return shipping labels . . . it’s time to mail some art!  

Print, color, cut and then write. Write to me, to your mom, your senator, a senior, a scientist, a soldier — write to anyone who might delight in a physical reminder that you are thinking of them today. Then slap a stamp on it and drop it in the mailbox, because receiving mail that isn’t junk mail is really cool. 

If you’re feeling super festive, snap a pic of your finished postcard and post it on Instagram (and tag @adventproj) so we can all celebrate your sick coloring skills!
