Title: Penpal and Happy Mail Exchange
Post by: eddysarah on January 09, 2014, 01:19:26 PM
Is anyone interested in having a penpal and doing a simple happy mail exchange? I am a beginner in calligraphy but I love stationery and paper crafts. I'm also into Project Life which is one of the reasons Ive decided to learn calligraphy.

I figured this would be a good way for me and other beginners to practice. Im open to more advanced calligraphers as well.

I would love to have some penpals :) I found a large drawer of stationery items and can always use envelope practice!

If anyone wants a letter from Austria, drop me a line! :D

I'm especially interested in mail from people as far away from my country as possible since it's so exciting to hear about different ways of life! <3

Is this still on? I'd really love to join in! I'm also a beginner and getting letters from other calligraphers would serve as a huge inspiration! :) I'm also about to set up a new instagram account so that I can follow everyone! :) I hope people are still doing this! :)
Title: Re: Penpal and Happy Mail Exchange

Inkcatcher I would love to be your penpal. Send me a private msg with your address and I will send you my address.
Title: Re: Penpal and Happy Mail Exchange
Post by: inkcatcher on May 15, 2014, 03:19:53 AM
Ate Moya and Ate Nickkih! You guys made me giddy! This will be my first ever exchange and your envelopes will probably be the very first ones i'll ever do in my life. Hah! I'm so excited but give me a little time! I'm currently a college student and I will definitely try to send one soon!

I will also check out the post office here! Thank you guys so much!  :-* I love this forum! :)

(Ate is a term for "big sisters" in the Philippines, a sign of respect and closeness)  :-*

Ahh, I'm so excited, too!  I'm nervous to show my calligraphy to actual calligraphers ... but then I always find that people are so friendly and so encouraging, all the time, even if they're infinitely better than I am.  And I'm very excited to get calligraphy-addressed mail - it's usually that I'm the one sending, not receiving :D

I think it will take a very long time from Australia to anywhere, but that will just make it better. I went out and bought pretty envelopes tonight specially :)

And if anyone else wants an Australian penpal, I'm happy! PM me your address :)

I just joined FF, but would love a pen pal. I always write snail mail and I don't receive any back. Darn technology.

Message me your address and I will send a letter, or a Chicago postcard.

Is this still on? If anyone's interested in receiving snail mail coming from Singapore, leave me a PM! I'd love to send and receive mail from different parts of the world, I love everything from the stamps to the handwritten notes. :)
Title: Re: Penpal and Happy Mail Exchange
Post by: Faeleia on May 29, 2014, 10:06:43 PM
I'm from Singapore too and eventually I wanna try this , but I want to keep training first. I don't want the postal people to laugh at my writing and the receiver to be disappointed by the mail. Lol.
Title: Re: Penpal and Happy Mail Exchange
Post by: Blotbot on May 30, 2014, 10:08:30 AM
I am still interested in more pnpals.  I don't think anything I send will be inspirational, but I try to be interesting.  PM me with address.

Hi Rubine,
Do you want to join the Summer exchange or become a penpal? To sign up for the summer exchange email or PM me your full name and mailing address. For the penpal exchange - I think you can PM anyone who has responded on this list to exchange mail.  :)

I just love my pen pal letters. Thanks so much. My husband is asking who they are from. I told him my FF friends (Tri-F). He asks what do they write about.

I think he is jealous and I need to write a letter to him too.

I am off for the summer (teacher, I know you hate me), so if anyone would like another pen pal just msg me your address.

Welcome Sue,

Several of us have left a comment. You can just send them (or me) a personal message to ask if they want to be your pen pal.  I know I found 4 this way myself.

Happy snail mail.

Hello all, coming to this thread a bit late... I would love to practice via letter sharing. (As it turns out, I've decided to embark on an insane task of sending a handmade letter out every day. Only because email and texting can really wear you down sometimes, and there's nothing like connecting through old school postal mail!)

What is the best method to share my address? Apologies, I'm still getting to know how to use this forum...

Thank you!!
Janice
