ATCs going missing all the time, so I wouldn't take take it so personally, cabaute.  Every month people have to resend, and sometimes multiple times.  Sadly, our postal system isn't perfect.  And that's why we don't do DC because ATCs are easy to make and easy to resend.  I've had to resend many times, myself. 

One way to keep your ATCs from disappearing is to write "please hand-cancel only" on the envelope. I work at a USPS sorting center, and the machines we run envelopes on  are really hard on the mail if there's anything bumpy or stiff in the envelope. They get pinched between belts and have to go through tight curves around wheels at a rate of at least 30,000 envelopes per hour. If you ask for it to be hand-canceled, it won't be run on a machine, and is more likely to arrive there intact (though perhaps a day slower).

This is ESPECIALLY true if you ever try to mail a lumpy thing in an envelope. We try to pick them out, but at the end of the day there's a pile of little things like coins and keychains that get smooshed right through the paper.

That's why it's also really important to put your complete return address on there - if the envelope gets destroyed, or if the address was wrong, we might be able to return it at least!

Thanks for the awesome advice, CH!!

I claim kartiana for found poetry.

Hi, I am Meg, living in snowy upstate New York. I am a newlywed and crazy in love. I adore cats and really miss my cat rescue projects. I now live in an apartment where I can't have 20 foster cats...... wonder why....
I love to garden, volunteer, ski, ride my unicycle, make the world a better place.
I have a 24-year old daughter but feel 24 years old myself, even tho I have 6 months til my 50th birthday.

Here is my list

Cats, cats, and more cats, either tamed or wild (luv Scottish wild cats!)
A veggie garden scene
Pen and ink
Things that happened in 1963 (my birth year) Have had great success with this topic in past ATC trades

fallen down barns
giant work-type horses
Scotland
your beloved childhood stuffed animal
embroidery
something of your choice with a scent on it (no cloves or patchouli please)
vines
something with moss on it
luna moths
Spring is coming...!
interpret your favorite Perry Como song
Tintin
One of these things is not like the other...
funny roadsigns
Things you should not put in a toaster.

Ridiculous cliches
A crow sitting in a tree saying something obscure
Possums
Cottage roses (or wild roses)
