Not trying to snarky.

What is Scrapping Pen Pals for Peas about?
Is it just a FB page to communicate with Peas?
or is it for trades/swaps?

It's a Facebook page for peas who are ISO real life snail mail pals.

Is this a group for Peas who want a snail mail pen pal? I'd love to sign up if so. How do I send a request? I'm not that familiar with Facebook although I do have an account.

Thanks so much Margaret! I was looking all around that page trying to find a "join" or something like that button. Anyway, I tried again after reading your post and I found it.

How does this work? Is someone going to match us up? I'd love to be matched with an international Pea if possible.

Thanks. I meant what is the basics behind this? I was MIA for about a week due to DH's flu and my helping DS move into his dorm. I think I must have missed the original thread talking about starting this group and what it would be like.

I did join the group on Facebook but my exposure to facebook is limited, so I'm haven't really looked around much on it-I guess I should do that.

Will this be a snail mail group only or is email allowed? If snail mail does that mean handwriting only or can the letters be typed or written on the computer? Is there an original thread about this group that I can read?

Debbie,

Someone pulled up a pen pal thread from 2011. Others replied. I thought it would be better to have a F/B group. It's a closed group.

We snail mail each other.

After your membership is approved, you can write on the wall, telling a bit about yourself. You can also read and respond to their postings. Snail mail addresses are exchanged via private message. Some have 1-2 pals, others have 3+. It depends on what you and how many you want to write.

You can scroll down the wall and see posts from a few weeks ago with people you may want to write. I also post bits of info and have fun RAK's. Some are putting little things in their letters-a small sheet of stickers, ribbon, tea bag for tea with your pal, ect.....

It's exciting because you really get to know the person. Some have pen pals from 30+ years ago. (No idea how they connected). But, the idea is to build a friendship. It's really nice to receive mail from pen pals.



Cheers from Southeast Sunny Florida!

Thank you so much for your answer Cindy! Now I get it.

I had a Pen pal for about 10 years that lived in England while I live in the USA. We met each other through a Al Stewart fan club list. Back then (80's and 90's) it was all snail mail and yet I still have all of her letters. There is just something extra special about a handwritten letter.

One summer I visited my grandmother in Germany with my 1 year old son and my mother. I left my son with them while I flew to England and spent a week with my penpal. My grandmother urged me not to go because my son had a cold. I told her, "He's in good hands with the both of you here, I'm going!" It was so amazing! She and her husband took me to North Wales which was their favorite vacation spot and we got along famously, as if we'd know each other all of our lives.

Sadly I lost touch with her a few years ago. I am so excited to have a new pen pal.

Debbie in MD.
