The Dear Friend Project


{original img source gabrielle kai}

The other day I was going through my box of birthday cards that I've received throughout my life and found a letter from a penpal in grade 4. After going through my memento box, I really miss getting handwritten letters from someone completely random the old fashion way -- handwritten letters.

Thus I'll be beginning a new project -- The Dear Friend Project, and I like to ask all of you to participate! :)

I'm hoping in a few months from now, we'll all have some new friends, and awesome keepsakes by exchanging letters to one another.

In a week's time (Wednesday April 13th), I'll match everyone up with someone and you can exchange mailing addresses. Please send a handwritten letter to them (minumum 1 page double-spaced please). Feel free to decorate these with stickers, tape, cute papers, etc. or send other PAPER items. Please send this letter out within one month of being assigned.

Every month I'll post an optional list of prompts you can use in your letters.

If you would like to participate please post below or contact me with the following:
Name:
E-mail:
Location (country):
Prefer to send letters domestically/internationally/doesn't matter:

April's Letter Prompts {optional} :
  • Introduce yourself (name, family, location)
  • List 3 things you love
  • Include a drawing (in your letter or on a seperate sheet)
  • Write about the last place you've been to

I will probably be creating a Flickr group for this later on so we can all see the adorable letters we'll be receiving. ;)
I look forward to seeing your letters on blogs/flickr/etc. :D
