New: The Note Card Service
✒️ handing the pen over to you
I’m excited to kick off a new chapter for the mail art project! The project, formerly known as the Postcard Project, is now called the Note Card Service. Going forward, instead of signing up for it through a paid Substack Collector level subscription, you can sign up through my website. If you're already signed up through the paid Collector subscription through Substack, don't worry - you're already on the list and don't need to take any action.
Over the last year (March 2022 through February 2023) I sent out numbered postcards to the Collector level subscribers of this Substack blog. On those cards, subscribers rose to the challenge of deciphering the note I had written in my terribly, messy handwriting. Thank you so much for not complaining about my penmanship. 😜
And now I’m handing the pen over to you.
I’ve already discussed this with many of you, but for those of you not in the loop here’s the change going forward for this project.
Four times a year, I'll send three blank note cards through the Note Card Service instead of the monthly postcard project. The 12 note cards you’ll receive over the course of the year are suitable for any occasion, and you'll have the fun of sending them out or collecting them for yourself. And your penmanship is probably better than mine to boot!
🗓️ Here's the mailing schedule for the Note Card Service:
I just sent out the first batch today, so for those of you who have been receiving the postcards, expect three note cards to arrive next week.
To recap: if you're already on the list, no need to sign up for anything else - you'll receive a full year of the note card service tacked onto your existing subscription for free!
[Insert mental image of Oprah giving out free stuff here.]
For those not on the current list but interested in joining the fun, you can sign up for the blank note cards through my website at: https://maryann.ca/note-card-subscription-service
Please note that I've discontinued the paid subscription to this Substack blog, so new paid subscriptions will not be taken at this time, existing paid subscriptions are being extended.
Substack will continue to host the podcast and various other moving parts that go with www.MaryAnn.ca.
Thank you as always for your encouragement and support - it is greatly appreciated!
