Sunday I while discussing the sharing of our mutual computer and how the thesis was coming, we decided I could start blogging again... then yesterday hubby got an email from his advising professor about the latest draft and let's just say he'll be burning the midnight oil a few nights to get it finished by the end of the allotted time period (about a month after the end of the semester.)  Thus I offered to extend my blogging break to help support the finishing of the thesis. I will be back toward the middle or end of the month about the middle of June.

However, yesterday while reading through my reader, I found this wonderful post by Joy the Baker. I absolutely loved the idea and decided to copy her idea... I asked first and she was very encouraging that I use the idea. I mean, who doesn't love to get handwritten letters?! or mail in general... okay unless it's junk mail, but I have to admit I do sometimes prefer getting a junk mail envelope as opposed to no mail at all! Am I alone in this? I hope not. Please tell me at least one of you feels the same from time to time. I hope this does not make me pathetic...

We all need each other and I would love to be able to help cheer up someone by sending them a handwritten letter. That's where you come in, I need you! I need people to send letters to that would love to get one.

So here's the deal - if you want a handwritten letter (and recipe, because after all who doesn't love to get handwritten recipes) simply send an email to this email address: crystalismypenpal (at) gmail (dot) com. If you want a specific recipe that I've had on my menu but hasn't gotten posted - just let me know and I'll include that as the recipe.

And no worries about sending me your address through that email. I will only use it for the purpose of sending you a handwritten letter and recipe. I won't publish it online or sell it to wherever addresses are sold to (I don't really know where one sells address at so you have no worries there!) 

Also, when you get the letter, if you could snap a picture of it (preferably with you in the picture) and email me the picture... I'd love to see the pictures, but not something you HAVE to do. So please still send me your address even if you don't want to take a picture.

One last thing - if you want a more personal letter - tell me something about yourself. It can be something as simple as I love birds. Or it could be a whole paragraph filled with anything you'd care to tell me and most likely have me reference in a letter. 

Finally, if you know anyone who would love to get a handwritten letter, please feel free to pass this on to them! 

Bye for now. I can't wait to hear from you all!

  1. This is such a fun idea! I love hand written notes and cherish the people who take the time to write them. Oh, I am so totally in!
