Pen Pal Exchange is now closed!



The Pen Pal Exchange is now officially closed!

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to each and everyone of you that joined up. We have over 80 people taking part which is more than I could have ever hoped for. I'm so happy that the scheme has appealed to so many people, I really thought about 10 people would join.

For those who missed out I'm sure I will re-open the scheme again soon. I'm glad I put a closing date because with over 80 people joined up it's going to take a fair bit of organising and a fair few hours will be dedicated to matching people up and sending emails out. Look out for an email from me soon, it may take a while to copy and paste all your email addresses but I will try and get the ball rolling on Sunday when I have a day off.

Kirsty at sweet dreams, sweet cheeks mentioned a blog called Goodnight Little Spoon and a tumblr group called Fuck Yeah Mail which should provide you with some inspiration for making your letters extra pretty.
If you know of any other lovely letter blogs or groups please let me know.

I will try and make a little blog button/badge for everyone that has joined up to the scheme when I figure out how to do it :)
Thank you again for joining up and check your emails at the end of the week!

  13. I really wanted to join, but then I thought of how many things I have on my to do list constantly and that I really wouldn't have much time to do this, so next time it's round, I really have to sort my life out so I can take part yay :)

  21. ok do i expect a email from you first because i have been getting emails from girls saying they saw my email from your blog, turns out they are asking me for money because they are in some 3rd world country (slight exaggeration) fighting for their life and need my help! lol obviously i realise this cant be the same thing so i added these people to junk! just giving you a heads up! x
