Happy Mail: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is quickly becoming my favorite fall holiday: just as much coziness and amazing food as Christmas, but less stress and fuss. This month, I’m celebrating overeating with Carolyn Figel, an artist who’s also a huge snail mail fan (and an animated gif genius).
Here’s my envelope to Carolyn, inspired by my love for green bean casserole (french fried onions!!!!) and pumpkin pie.
Happy Mail: November | Oh Happy Day!

And here’s Carolyn’s extremely clever envelope to me:

Happy Mail: Thanksgiving | Oh Happy Day!

Happy Mail: Thanksgiving | Oh Happy Day!

Carolyn writes: “Thanksgiving for me will always mean one thing: pie. I have a large family filled with aunts, grandparents, uncles, cousins, siblings, dogs… you name it. No matter how many pies my Grandma and I made to bring with us to dinner, serving dessert always seemed like the Hunger Games. You had to move quickly to get a slice, because before you knew it all that was left was some crumbs on a plate!”
