postheadericon Snail Mail/Pen Pal Sunday Roundup


I wrote a post recently about Letter Writing and I have received my first pen pal letters.  I signed up on several sites:  Swap-Bot, Postcrossing, Sandbook, Lettersets, and Friendships By Mail.  So far, I already have a handful of pen pals lined up and I’m happily letter-writing away.  I have also registered my daughter for a pen pal.  I can’t wait to get that started.


Yesterday, I received my first postal pen pals from Swap-Bot.

My daughter and I were very excited when we saw the envelopes in the mailbox.

We opened the big envelope first.  This one was from my 20 Facts Swap on  The writer is a newly married, young lady from Illinois.  She sent two postcards from Chicago.  It was a lot of fun reading about all the things she likes.  My daughter was giddy over some of the things, like Hello Kitty and fingernail polish.  It’s not a requirement for me to write her back, but I think I will.  Sounds like she could be a great pen-pal.

Then we opened the second letter with the brightly decorated envelope.  This letter was from a lady closer to my age living in Ohio.  It was a well-written 5 page letter introducing herself, and I’m very pleased to say she is definitely someone that I think I can correspond with on a regular basis.

I have a valentine swap that I’m participating in.  I have collected some valentiney things to create a card with.  Now all I have to do is sit down and start creating the card.  Right now, I have no ideas, but I’m sure something will come to me very soon.

I can’t wait to get more letters.  This is going to be an exciting adventure.
