Correspondence Club: May 2012

May Correspondence Club

 

Participants: AlexCarrie, DebbieFab, KaitlynKat, Mike, me, Sara, Tatjana, Tracy, Veronica, LauraChris, Rehana, Dina, HopeEmilyNatashaStephanieCarmilaImogen, Amber, Ashlie, Natalie, Lisa, Mika, Lisa V.

In the month of May the Correspondence Club exploded!  Thanks to the sweet Fab allowing me to guest post on her blog, we doubled in size and we are now at 28 members!  I am absolutely thrilled at how the club has grown and I only want it to keep getting bigger!  That being said, if you have any suggestions on how you think the club could be improved, please shoot me an email- I would love to hear your ideas!

Also, a couple of little things: I’ve created a tab in my navigation menu at the top of the page just for the Correspondence Club.  That way you can easily see all of the related posts at once!  I’ve also created a little button for the club which you can grab below.  If you’d like, you can put it in the sidebar on your blog and help spread the word! :)

  • Berri Quita

    Thank you for taking the time and patience to organize this event!

    • So glad to have you in the club Veronica and I’m happy to organize it! :)

  • Katherine

    I loved what you did with the layout of the letters :) One suggestion: maybe every other month we can have different penpals?

    • That is a great suggestion Kat and I think we’ll switch it up, starting with June!

      Thanks- I had a lot of fun making this layout! :)

  • Oh my! I’m so glad your guest post on my blog brought so many participants! :D
    Anyway I second Katherine! it could be a sort of round robin perhaps?

    I also love how you displayed the letters, and the CC button is getting on my blog right away!

    • I think you and Katherine are right that we should switch it up, starting with June! Thanks again for letting me guest post Fab and for adding the blog button! :D

    This is really cool. I’ve always wanted pen pals, but I’m terribly lazy hahaha.

    • Thank you! Haha, yes, one letter a month doesn’t seem like a lot, but sometimes life just gets so busy! :)

  • Eli

    This is so awesome, when things finally wind down with work, I’m gonna join! Keep posting about it so I don’t forget :) My boyfriend is traveling abroad and I’ve gotten three postcards from him, it’s SO nice to get someone’s real words in a card. That’s why I always buy blank birthday cards.

    • Yay, I’d love to have you join Eli! Don’t worry, I definitely plan to continue doing these posts :)

      Yes, I agree- it’s amazing how powerful the written word is, right?!

  • I love the creativity and personalization that went into these. so great!

    • Same- I love seeing what people come up with each month! :)

  • I love the way you set this up! Also… was I supposed to send a photo of the letter I sent to Rehana? Because I sent a photo of the one she sent me… oops.

    • Thanks Alex- I think this may be my fave collage so far!

      Yes, you’re supposed to send me a picture of your letter before you send it out :) But let’s just talk about how I didn’t even realize that I used the same picture for you and Rehana until you pointed it out- *woops!* hahaha

  • Congrats on the success…once I get settled back in Charlotte I will definitely be joining in for July! <3
