Random Give- Away Winners, and Writing Letters

Have you ever come across a letter written by your parents, grandparents or another family member ~ possibly written before you were even born. How amazing it must have been to learn a little more about their life, character, with each stroke of their pen; to understand perhaps what made them who they became.

Maybe you have come across a long forgotten letter written to you ~ by a childhood friend or a family member. The smiles, the tears, the laughter you must have re-lived, with each word you read. Unfortunately as more people turn to email, texting, face book and other electronic devices to communicate, the Art of Letter writing and the ability to reach back in time is fading. 

Last year I started hosting BlogLand Pen Pal (there were 65 plus participants) and now that the summer is over I'm hoping you will once again join in and help brighten someone's day by becoming a BlogLand Pen Pal. There is no cost or long term commitment (you exchange hand written letters, notes, with your Pen Pal - for as long or short a time as you both want); just email me at fallingoffahighheeledlife@gmail.com 
with BlogLand Pen Pal in the subject line.

~ Your postal address
~ if you have a Blog - please include it's site address
or say a little about yourself , so that we will match you with someone with similar interests.
~ When there is a pen pal match, an email with postal address will be sent to you (and them), 
the rest is up to the both of you.


To Thank previous participants for their support with BlogLand Pen Pal and for helping to keep the Art of Letter Writing Alive... Congratulations to the lucky past participants:

Set of 8 Treasures by Shabby Chic note cards with envelopes and an ATTEATUDE and Chocolate mug, to hold her tea or coffee as she writes her letters and cards. 

The 7 year pen, for years of card and letter writing, with a set of 6 Wishful Thinking cards and envelopes.

A 16 month, Scriptures of Praise 2012 Calendar to keep track of special dates requiring a card or letter and set of 6 Wishful Thinking note cards and envelopes.

 Congratulations ladies, please email me your info and I will get your wonderful goodies out to you.
