What is the Happy Mail Campaign?
Starting Sept 1 2012, I Stacy Julian , declare that I will make and send 365 handmade cards with handwritten notes. Now I do not want to do this along and I know with your enthusiastic support, we can do this. Join me in a pay-it-forward Happy Mail movement where people rediscover the joy of sending and receiving handwritten communication (with a stamp).

What is Happy Mail?
Happy Mail is a concept that we started with the launch of Big Picture Classes in 2005. We wanted to connect with our members in multiple ways. When you register for an account at Big Picture Classes we ask you some unusual questions, such as what is your favorite candy bar? your favorite color? Using those answers and with the help of our BPC team we randomly mail out happy mail to members. In fact when we celebrated our 5-year anniversary we sent out 500 happy mail packages to 500 Big Picture members all around the world. We continue to package and send happy mail out to our members throughout the world.

I have been following the challenges but have no idea on how to up load an image as I don't have a web page or blog. Got any ideas?

I am so excited that I found your website tonight! I am very familiar with card making and creating paper crafts and have done so for over 10 years I have been wanting to begin to scrapbook for a while now, especially after having my son in 2009, but I guess I am intimidated by using photos, and I am not even sure exactly why. I have taken two of the free classes tonight and already and I am beginning to feel so inspired! I am very excited! Thank you for your nurturing online environment, I feel like I belong here. It is a great feeling!
