I'm Bringing Pen Pals Back-Yeah!

Above title to be sung to the tune of Sexyback by JT.Card via

You guys, I came up with a fun idea last night: I want to bring back the lost art of having a Pen Pal! Remember those? When you would write to someone and they would write you back, and you would send said letters through a little something called the United States Postal Service?

I know initially it might sound a bit juvenile, but how fun would it be to get a little something in the mail every month? It could be as simple as a cute notecard saying "Hi", to a full blown letter, to a collage you made, to something that is inspiring you that month. Anything goes!

What do you all think? Are you in? If so, email me at nattiecakedesigns(at)hotmail.com with this info:

  • Your name and address (duh)
  • Your birthday (every good Pen Pal sends a bday card!)
  • A few of your interests (so I can match you up accordingly)
  • If you are willing to take an international Pen Pal (since postage might be a bit more)

The rule is to send your Pen Pal something in the mail at least once a month.

Please email me by Monday July 6th, so that I can start the matching process. I hope you all join in!

  3. Cute idea! One blogger and I sort of have a pen-pal thing going already and it's so fun! Real mail is a great break from the bills / Bed Bath & Beyond coupons :)

    isnt in kind of funny in a way, full circle - we get away from mailing letters. to phone calls. then emails. texts. etc etc

    and we all crave a letter?
