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 Swap-Bot.com. 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.
