We Love Snail Mail

Receiving and giving out letters and mail packages have always been one of my favourite things. Though I was born and raised in the age of being too techo kid , it still cherishes me to be able to collect stamps and other stuff via mail from other countries. If you remember , I had spoken about a snail mail program in my post a while back. So this is actually the time to let the show be started ;)
We Love Snail Mail
yo , grab a button!

What is We Love Snail Mail?
It's a monthly mail exchange program. Every month, you will be paired with a new partner and exchange mails, hand written letters, emails and become friends in a few weeks. We'll try our best to pair up two different cultured persons so you can make friends from different cultures and countries. Then you'll have to send your partner a small package.

How to do this?
The mail shouldn't be more than 3$-5$. Handmade items and handwritten letters are more than appreciated. It'd be more special if you include something that reflects your country's culture. Once you get your mail, it'd be more fun if you blog about this or Instagram it and link up here. Me & Areeba love to receive happy mails and we'd love if you join us too.

When you can sign up?
It's our first time so we're opening the sign ups from 26 June to 5 July. Once started, we'll take sign ups from 1st of the month to 5th of the month.

  8. This sounds like a really cool idea! I would love to promote this and take part. I am terrible at making things though, I have barely any creative skills. So I might just watch for a bit and see what happens! :) But this sounds right up my street.
