Firstly, I just want to say how much I loved running last month’s Bring Back Paper activity, a pen pal sign up. We had more people than we’ve ever had get involved and it was so lovely getting emails from so many people keen to send snail mail. I do hope that everyone that joined in gets their letters out there this month, and don’t worry if you missed out, I will run another one soon. In the meantime, we have a fun stationery swap to get involved in!
This is a chance for you to spread some happiness with happy mail as you enjoy putting together a parcel full of pretty papery goodies for your swap partner and then unwrap their offerings as a treat for yourself. Sounds perfect!
It is nice and simple activity to get involved with. All you need to do is pop a package of stationery bits and bobs together and send them out into the world to your swap partner so that they have received them by the end of February. You can include whatever you like, from notepaper to jotters to stickers to pens to clips to washi to postcards – it really can be whatever suits you. We’re not talking huge amounts of stuff here, just a pretty little parcel to brighten someone’s day, spending around £5.
The swap is open to everyone worldwide, and you need not blog or be active on social media to take part. You just need to enjoy stationery.
To get involved, email me with your name and address at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will then pair you up and get back to you with your swap partner’s details as soon as I have done so. It’d be really helpful if you could let me know whether you’d be willing to or would prefer to post internationally, please. It’s open until 24th February 2018.
Is this something you like the sound of? Can you resist receiving a bundle full of surprise stationery this month? I know I can’t!
