Last week I participated in a Stationery Swap on Postcrossing and was a host which means I gather 10 stationery items and post to the next person on the list of participants. There were 5 participants in my group. Participants take how many items they would like and replace that amount back and send it onto the next person. The last person sends me the 10 items, so it will be interesting to see what arrives back to me eventually.
Contents of the stationery swap are: Ruler, paperclips, note pad, slinky attacher, scented pens, stationery holder, magnetic bookmark, note book, sticky notes, gel pens.
Countries this parcel is going to are Greece, USA, Turkey, Germany and Japan.
So not only do we swap postcards there are other swaps as well that you can participate in which makes it fun.
Still waiting for my first official postcard to arrive LOL, there should be 3 winging their way to me as 3 of mine have been received since I joined on 23 March 2015
I'm very lucky to have a postbox right outside my door. We don't have that system in the USA where you can leave your envelope with postage stamp on it in your mailbox and the mailman will pick it up and post it for you-what a great idea and service to the community.
April is National Card and Letter Writing Month when you write 30 letters in 30 days. Pick up a pen and paper and write a letter or card and send to a random someone and put a smile on their faces. HERE is an article about how letter writing is like getting a hug in the mail. This ARTICLE shows gorgeous stationery. I did not know until April 12th that this was Letter Writing Month but luckily for me and Postcrossing that I already sent out 10 letters this month so I have to catch up now hahaha.
Anniversary WOYWW is here again-week 312 which falls on May 27th, so if you'd like to participate HERE is what Julia has in mind for that post. If you'd like to swap an ATC with me let me know in the comments so I know how many to make and send me your snail mail address via EMAIL.
Joining Julia in her Stamping Ground to see more desks and activities around the world.
