Snacks and Scribbles Exchange
« on: June 26, 2014, 06:09:14 PM »
Would anyone be interested in doing a snacks and scribbles exchange? It's kind of like a pen pal, but with snacks to go with your letter!

We could set a $ amount to spend on snacks. This is especially fun if we have some international participants.

i would love to but i'm not sure if customs allows certain "snacks"?  i'd have to check what the rules are.  and it would have to go in a parcel probably wouldn't fit in an envelope?  unless anyone wants some smashed Sour Patch Kids?   ;D

I'm afraid the Vegas heat here would just melt any candy sent :(

I'd totally join a sticker or unused stamp exchange though!

I would love to, and I could send out Vegemite and Tim Tams!  ... buuuut, I couldn't receive anything, probably, because Australian customs are really really strict on foodstuff.  So, I might sit out :(

You all could just do exchanges of photos of snacks, flourishes of snacks, stamps with snack illustrations, calligraphed snack names, delivered WHILE eating a snack to make up for it.  ::)

Snacks might be an issue getting across customs. How about postcards of food delicacies?

LOVE the ideas ya'll! (<-- yes, we really do say this in Texas :P)

When I was thinking about snacks, I was thinking salty snacks since I have such a savory tooth, but then they won't melt! (not much of a sweet tooth fortunately?)

How about this. If you are interested in participating email: [email protected] with the following information.

1. What you want to exchange:
        a) snacks (preference for salty/sweet, food allergies)
                  OR
        b) stickers/stamps
2. Full Name
3. Address

I'll then pair you off with someone who wants to exchange the same thing. Be sure to include a card/letter with calligraphy. If you exchange snacks you can decide with your partner the $ you want to spend.
