Pen Pals

99 years ago today the first round-the-world telegram was delivered.  In this day and age you can correspond with anyone anywhere in the world at a click of a button, but in my opinion nothing beats finding a hand written letter sent from some far away country sitting on your doorstep.  There’s something so personal about taking the time to write out a letter to someone. As a child I used to have a few pen pals, and loved getting to know people from different countries .  I still have letters from my grandparents and friends tucked away in a box somewhere that I like to re-read from time to time.

So when I saw that Indie Fixx was running a pen pal project I just had to sign up.  I love the idea of making new friends just by exchanging addresses with strangers.  And I’ve exchanged a lot of addresses so far!  I’ve sent mail out to North America, Europe and Asia, and I’m eagerly awaiting responses from my new friends.  If you’re crafty and would like to make a new friend or two, why not sign up too??

    Great picks I used to have a pen pal, I sometimes wonder what happened to them!

    Lovely picks. I am still in contact with a couple of penpals I made whilst at school. Unfortunately, we tend to email rather than write nowadays!
