Grandma Bev was creative and full of delightful cheer. For years, she sent Holiday cards in 3-dimensional handcrafted envelopes, using shipping materials and trinkets that she collected. She lived near the water, and many of the cards had a boathouse theme. Here’s Captain Lou, Bev’s husband, and his Delta Tours.
My favorite envelope is the snow globe that extends 2” from the face of the envelope. Grandpa Lou is Santa Claus and Grandma Bev is Mrs. Claus in her wheelchair. 23-years from the day she mailed the cards, it still snows when you shake it.
As a USPS Mail Design Professional, I’m amazed that her envelopes processed through the USPS system and how well these precious keepsakes stayed intact. I think her note to the mail carrier did the trick: “Hi there, Mailperson. Have a good day!”
We all need a Grandma Bev in our lives. Especially during this time of COVID. She reminds me that it’s the little things in life that count and the kindness we extend to each other.
Join us in celebrating Grandma Bev’s joy this Holiday Season!
