From the comments on my last post, it sounds like a lot of you are intrigued and excited by snail mail.  One of the things I love to particpate in are swaps.  It's a lot of fun to come up with creative, meaningful, colourful and fun packages for your swap partner.  Most times this is an absolute stranger.   If you are a dollarstore addict like me, there is so much you can buy, cut-up, repurpose and use for a swap that doesn't make it an expensive hobby.
So why not get in on the fun?  I thought I would quickly share with you three swaps that I am taking part in.  Please, please, please feel free to join in the fun.

1. Passion's New Friend Swap
Head on over to Passion's blog to check out the details for this swap.  Along the way, you might even make a new people and new friend.  Last day to sign up is May 26, 2010. 

2.  Cute/Funky Socks Swap. 
In this Swap-bot swap, you will send two pairs of socks to your partner.  This is an International swap so your partner could be anywhere in the world or right next door.  If you are new to Swap-bot you can join this swap without any previous ratings. Remember to sign up by May 23, 2010.  Can't wait to see what pretty things my partner sends me for my feets!

Sign up for this swap by May 31, 2010.  Tillie will send you a quick questionnaire to complete.  Your partner will get your answers and will use them to learn a little but about you and send you three of their favorite things. 

I hope you'll join in on the snail mail joy and join one of these swaps or send something fun to someone you love.  High five to Micaela for letting me know about Passion and Tillie's swaps.

Hi Faiza, I'm sorry for not visiting your blog since our last swap(I want more blogger followers). You've been a great supporter of my blog and I really appreciate it. I love getting and sending snail mail,too! And I love your decorated envies! Would you like to swap handmade/decorated envies with me? I was in 2 of these swaps on swap-bot and loved making/receiving them!

I just send an email to passion's new friend swap. Thanks for spreading the word! I love snail mail too!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I feel much better now. Going to go through a lot of dental surgery in the coming month.. haha. But I think everything will be fine by then. Cheers, and thanks for the hug!
