Description:

I woke up this morning really wishing I had a Pen Pal I could share my life and my interests and just generally share with. I searched online, but to no avail. I looked longingly at the cute notecards and papers I have collected over the years collecting dust with no one to write to. Then I had a realization! I should start a swap! :O)

So here it is: a simple snail mail pen pal swap. Send one two-page letter about you, your life, your family, your job, what you did that day, interesting news or even a good book you read lately. Whatever you want! The choices are limitless! Please ALSO send one response back to the person.

No paper size is going to be stipulated - but please don't be silly and use tiny post-it notes as your paper! We are going to send to only 1 person to keep any stress non-existent.

I am looking for people who would like to keep this on a permanent basis - not just within the confines of a swap (this swap is only for 1 letter each way to complete.) I will give 1 week to write your letters (but you can start writing prior to partners being assigned - you do not have to focus your letter one what their profile says. Keep it fun!)

Anyone want to be my pen pal? :O)

@LADYBUGZ75 .......in the upper right hand corner of this page (in yellow), click on the "see the partner you send to".

JewelzyBug 02/13/2012 #

Thanks for the help Deeno1105! I just came on to check if there were any problems or questions! :O)

Everyone busy writing away? Ha! I know my hand and pen are getting a work out! :O)

THANKYOU BUT NOTHING HAPPENES WHEN I CLICK ON THAT . I AM IN SEVERAL SWAPS AND IT WILL NOT LET ME SEE WHO MY PARTNER IS FOR ANY OF THEM

citygirl1107 02/17/2012 #

Hi JewelzyBug! I have a question. I sent my pen pal extravaganza letter and marked it sent. My profile shows that it was sent but next to that it reads "oops, not sent". I don't understand. Can you provide an explaination? Thanks a lot!

pamsangels68 02/18/2012 #

@citygirl1107 that only means that if you checked it on accident you can click there to uncheck it as sent!

JewelzyBug 02/20/2012 #

Hi Everyone! Thanks for answering the questions - I log on every now and again but someone always beats me to an answer! :O) Great group! Anywho - I noticed some people have still not clicked "sent" - I have contacted each of them to make sure everything is ok. As always - message me with any problems. :O) Happy swapping!

I have not received a letter from my "pen pal" as yet. I can assume that since it is International, it may take longer. They were to be out by the 17th and it is now the 24th. Do you know who my partner was that was sending to me? Thanx. Sue Bennett

JewelzyBug 02/25/2012 #

Hi Sue, You can check who your partner was by clicking the "rate your partner" in the top right hand corner. Whoever you have to rate is who is sending to you. Also it can take longer for it to get to you.
