As long as you follow some simple rules, you'll be safe.
1.- You can obviously not send any hazardous or suspicious looking objects.
2.- You should preferably write the sender and recipient's information on the same side of the box or whatever container you choose to send.
3.- As for shapes, you can even send a ball. When we sent this ball to Chantilly we were told that theoretically you can even send a coconut; they just can't guarantee it won't get broken.
4.- Always use the right postage. You can check USPS current postage rates here.
There's a group of people who ran an experiment to see what how far they could go with sending weird objects. The article is very interesting!
So far, I've sent Easter eggs, a bubble wrap hopscotch, a transparent box, a cardboard box, a plastic box and a ball.
So don't be shy and start sending snail mail without envelopes or wrapping! ;)
Last but not least, since we're talking about getting things in the mail, I need to thank 2 ladies for having sent the following goodies!
Chantilly sent me a copy of her latest CD, "Up to the Moon"!
And I got this very unexpected package from Chantele, too! :P I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the army of chicks; and don't let me get started with the "Keep Calm" tissue paper, ha! :D I don't want to use it!
Thank you so much, Chantele and Chantilly!
And thank you all for having made it so far!
Happy midweek! ;D
