Hi everyone! I have started sending out peamails to you with your pals name. You will need to contact them via peamail to get real addresses and check in with them. I really tried to pair up someone close to your age and interests, so have fun! Remember I am not responsible if your pal flakes out or doesn't work out. But hopefully everyone will make great new friends and get to know someone new! If you have any problems contacting your pal, contact me and let me know, so I can figure out what went wrong in peamail. Thanks and everyone should have a pal in an hour or two! There were 29 sets of pals so be patient please!

All pal pairs have been peamailed now, so run and check who you got. If you didn't get a peamail with your pals name, please let me know so I can get you that info, plus I want to make sure I didn't forget anyone on accident. If you have problems contacting your pal please let me know as we can try to reach them. I already have encountered one problem so please let me know. Thanks and have fun!

I know the official matching is up, but if anyone would like to be a penpal, I think it would be a lot of fun! You can peamail me if you think we'd mesh.

I'm a thirty something living in Washington, DC. I'm mostly a lurker on 2Peas, but a frequent reader. Married with our first child, 8 months old. I don't scrap as much as I'd like to, but would like to get back into now that we have the baby. I like all kinds of crafts including card making, crocheting, and jewelry making. I read a lot and watch a lot of bad tv. I'd be happy to correspond with someone in the States or abroad.

Or, if there's enough interest and the other lady doesn't want to coordinate any longer, I'd be happy to give matching people up a whirl. Just Peamail me your age, interests, if you'd like to be matched up with someone who's similar in age and/or location, etc.

Hi there!

I'd be interested in a pen pal as well!

I need a pen pal that would understand though that I'm a busy mum like them and sometimes my letters might be typed out, but I would do my best to hand write them.

Is that fair?

Put me on the list!

Hey Fiddler, if you get this, peamail me. I am the one that did the last match ups. Already I have had 2 peamails to me not to mention the people on here that were past the deadline. If you want the job this time, I will pass it on to you. I just matched up 50 pals so I could use the break Not that I wouldn't do it again, it was fun!

Hello, I live in Canada and I would love to find a snail mail penpal from another country, maybe in the UK, that enjoys scrapbooking. Technology isn't really my thing which is why I would prefer snail mail plus it's nice to get something in the mail other than bills! If anybody is interested please get in touch with me at jenlambert@mts.net Thank you.

Hey everyone who just found this post. I did the pen pal thing over a year ago I guess (wow it has been a long time) but I just don't have the time to set this up for everyone now. I am sorry and wish I had the time but if someone else wants to take this on I will gladly pass the torch. I know several of you have peamailed me this week about starting this up again and I think that's great. I just don't have the time to match up everyone again. I made over 50 pals last time and I just can't right now. Feel free to contact each other or if someone else wants to be the "mailman" I would be glad to give advice. Thanks and just wanted to let everyone know.

I tried the last pen pal post too, but my pen pal quite writing. I'd love to try again though because it was lots of fun. If there is still room would you please include me?

I'm a (soon to be, lets not rush it) 35 year old SAHM to 2 great kiddos - ages 4 (girl) and 7 (boy). I've been scrapping since my senior year of high school and I maintain an inspiration blog (or at least I try to).

I was looking online for scrapbook/crafty penpals and found this page so I thought I'd bump it.

Im in my 30s in Toronto Canada. Im obsessed with crafting of all kinds (diy, paper crafting, smash book/project life, painting, jewelry making, etc) and would love having penpals again like i did when i was a teen. I hate being grown up and only getting bils in my mailbox lol

I organized this the first time and am starting to get peamails again. I just can't put people together again, I simply don't have the time. If someone else wants to match up that would be great. I just wanted to let people know that I am not the contact anymore. Sorry!

I would suggest no one matching up people. One of my main hobbies is writing to pen pals. I've found them several ways:

INKY TRAILS

Long Lettered Ladies

Pen Friends Forever

The Letter Exchange

Or, if you want, I will create a 2 Peas Pen Pal Group. PM your facebook name. Please give me a few days to get it going.

I would LOVE to be involved with this.
I'm 33, newly engaged and I live in Orange County. I have no children.
I love anything with paper, love to write letters, and have a huge collection of stationary.
I'm in my 3rd month of PL (almost 4th), and I do physical and digi scrapping. I also write, do social media for my job and am a bit odd, but fun! I speak fluent Geek, and I love movies and music and all sorts of things. Peamail me if interested, I would love to write to others--maybe we can even swap supplies!

I sent a peamail. I hope no one minds if I type my letter rather than hand write. Handwriting just kills my hands. I'm happy to type a letter and send hand made cards via snail mail.

Oops, I was supposed to post here if interested. I am interested in a Pen Pal as long as I can type my letter rather than hand write. Handwriting just kills my hands I make cards so would be happy to send handmade cards as long as my letter can be typed.

I live in North Carolina, in my late 40's, married, no children (two grown stepdaughters living in other states that have never lived with us), one cat, self-employed, only child of elderly but active parents.

Interests: Scrapbooking, blogging, sewing, cooking, traveling, reading

Would be interested in a pal in US, Canada or abroad preferably with either grown children or no children.

Peamail me if interested. (Wow, this sounds like a personal ad. Nothing kinky going on here, I promise )

ETA: I'm the one self-employed, not the cat.

How fun! I would like to have a pen pal! I am a 36 year old wife and home school mom to 3 kiddos with one on the way. I love to scrapbook, make cards, sew, and garden. We live on a small hobby farm in the southern US. I'm not sure who is in charge of the most current interest in pen pals, but I'd love to get started. Looking forward to hearing from someone.
