Keep the art of letter writing alive!

Pen Pals wanted!  My friend High Heeled Life is once again hosting her Blogland Pen Pal program!  We took the summer off but now it's time to get a new penpal and put pen to paper!  Last year I was matched with three penpals and we still write to each other and send cute cards, little presents from time to time and keep in touch through letters...written on the mail.  I have spoken to one of my pen pals only through letters and cards - amazing isn't it!  My lovely pen pals have also sent me beautiful gifts!  I am so spoiled!  A gorgeous pink scarf for my birthday, adorable pink flowers for my garden, and cool pens that, even though I am a leftie, don't smudge! 

You know all those adorable cards we all bought at Micheal's?  Here is your chance to use them on someone you know will appreciate them!

From HHL:

There is no cost or long term commitment (you exchange hand written letters and notes, with your Pen Pal - for as long or short a time as you both want); just email me at 
with BlogLand Pen Pal in the subject line.

~ Your postal address
~ if you have a Blog - please include it's site address
or say a little about yourself , so that we will match you with someone with similar interests.
~ When there is a pen pal match, an email with postal address will be sent to you (and them), 
the rest is up to the both of you.
I cant wait to find out who my next pen pal will be!

Have a fabulous day!

I'll be sending you an e-mail soon. One of my favorite things when I'm at school is getting mail so this would be perfect!

Just have to find some stamps now....

What a great idea. My girlfriend and I were just talking about how we used to write letters to our grandmas. Much more personal than an email.

Have fun!

You know how much I love this every year, and *not* because we sell stationery. It's really about civility and good manners and communication via something other than a machine. :)

Love High Heeled Life for doing this and you for sharing it. :)

Super fun idea!
(Sadly I have not "inherited" my mother's beautiful handwriting and instead suffer with chicken-scatchy half printing/half writing.) :)
