Real Pen Pals

Shelagh recently set up a pen pal project for us bloggers if we wanted to participate. She joined us up with someone who had similar interests.

My pen pal, Cathy, sent her package all the way from Oregan to North Carolina. I think it is neat that we are from opposite sides of the United States.

She really surprised me with a photography book of Oregan, a set of notecards she made with her own photos (love those!!!), a long letter, and a card with flower seeds embedded in the outer wrapper. You soak the blue wrapper in water, then tear it up and plant it in a pot or in your garden. I can't wait to see what types of flowers will grow.


Thank You, Cathy!!!

And, Thank You Shelagh!!! What a great idea you had!!

Pen pals are fun - I used to love getting letters when I was little.

I am so thrilled that it worked out well for the two of you:)) I might try it again in the fall. It was a lot of work but it makes me happy to hear about people connecting!
