This is a snail-mail swap. We are always on our computers and every other technology, pretty much at the same time. Wouldn't it be nice to open up your mailbox and receive a beautiful, hand written letter or card? Something to cheer up your day or something to read while you're enjoying a cup of tea or coffee? You can use just plain ink and plain paper or jazz it up a bit. I know their are plenty of you out there that would love to write a letter. The topic of your letter may be about anything, just make sure it's "nice." In other words, let your letter ring of happy thoughts, etc. We all have deep, dark secrets, but let's keep this light-hearted and fun,okay? Tell your partner something about yourself that makes you, YOU! Tell them where you are, what you do, etc. One page, "handwritten" is the minimum, but don't be afraid to write 2 or 3. I can see pen pals starting right here! This will be an international snail-mail swap, so enjoy!

Could you more fully explain your definition of "nice", as pertaining to a topic? It's a bit vague. Thanks.

when do we start swapping? and when do we find out who we will be swapping with?

Mamameo 06/17/2006 #

Hello there...you can send your letter beginning on the 5th of July. Swap bot will pick your partner, so just come back after the 30th of June to see who it is. happy swapping!

Thank you for this catalyst. i love writing and receiving letters - but somehow I don't get around to doing much of it. The thought of a new penpal is just the thing to get me started again. I hope I get someone in another country ;) fingers crossed ...

I love the thought of a possible new pen pal. I've made serveral in the past, and getting to know someone new is always fun, espeically in today's busy world !

Mamameo 06/27/2006 #

blessing to you Sofia - got your lovely letter and goodies yesterday - thank you so much. Tried to leave a comment on the famous red legged desk but flickr has the hiccups.

I'll be sending a letter to you next week.

Thank you for organising Vidya etc etc!

p3knitter 07/10/2006 #

Mavis - I got you letter ... thank you so much - I will be sending one back soon!

user1835 07/17/2006 #

Has everyone received their letters by now?

user1816 07/18/2006 #

No letter for me yet...

user1372 07/18/2006 #

Nope, no letter for me either.

user1816 07/19/2006 #

oh, well i'm sure it's just slow, rnwannabe. If you don't get it in another week, I'm sure she'll send another one!

user406 07/21/2006 #

~thursday~ I'm supposed to be sending you a letter. I'm so sorry I haven't gotten it out to you yet! I had to have an emergency root canal on Monday, and I'll tell you all about that, as well as my other reasons for being so late at sending you your letter.

I haven't gotten mine yet either, but I'm sure (like in my case) there's a very good reason, so I won't hold it against them! :)

user1835 07/26/2006 #

no letter for me yet...

AmazonLife 07/27/2006 #

user1978 08/ 1/2006 #

Mine seems to have got lost in the international postal system :( I have spoken to my partner and I am posting another one out to her tonight.

user1500 08/11/2006 #

By now I did hear anything from my partner........ Hey, you are out there?

user1832 08/18/2006 #

user1962 08/22/2006 #

Recieved mine from Asia...Cool letter! Thanks.

Momta3luv2Quilt 08/23/2006 #

Sorry...ment to post under letter swap #3

Erna 10/ 7/2006 #

I got my letter at last! My partner deserves a standing ovation for perseverance - she had to send it 3 times before it got through. The postal (international) service seems to be a problem... but HURRAH! It feels like a triumph when one succeeds!
