Good Mail Club invitation


Following the positive response to this post where I showed you the beautiful mail I received from fellow blogger Ally and the envelope I decorated to send back to her, I am inviting you to join in on the fun.
I'm establishing the Good Mail Club and invite you to join in.
SO, what does it mean?
Basically, you email me with your postal address to register your interest, I will collate a list and email it out to other interested ladies and then it's time to get those creative juices flowing.

A few notes:
- open to international penpals.
- I will give us 3 weeks to get our mail created and sent, so hopefully we will receive letters at around the same time.
- have fun, no stress, decorate an envelope any which way - draw, paint, stamp, stick!
- write a friendly note to your recipient - it doesn't matter if you don't know them.
- try to enclose something extra, a nice photo, a favourite recipe, a thoughtful quote, some pretty paper.
- when we receive them we can start sharing them on our blogs or instagram and the like.
- it's really important to keep everyone's identities private, so no passing on addresses or posting images showing surnames and addresses please :)
- if there's only a few of us I will send out all of our names to you, otherwise I will pick 6-8 out of a hat for each of us.
- you can join in once, twice, or however many times take your fancy.

If you have any other suggestions, please let me know!

So, are you in?

ps. do you have a better name than Good Mail Club??

Edit: we have closed this first group, but will do it again in a month or two x

  3. Oh count me in. I just made some cute party invitations with my daughter tonight which I could reinvent for the good mail club. I quite like the name it sounds kind of quaint.

  4. Hi Sarah,
    I've already got a few pen pals and would really love more. I send letters, postcards and ephemera from Canada and England (because I live in both places). Sending you my addy.:)

  5. This is such a lovely idea, but I'm personally just so terrible at keeping penpals. But I look forward to seeing what you receive/send.
