Ah, I can take my shoes off and relax.......all 56 emails have been sent out.
Penpals matched, armed and ready! Let the writing begin:)
That was a lot of work but I hope that everyone involved gets enjoyment out of it:) I did.

If there are any glitches, please contact me. I will try to help out as best I can. I am hoping everyone will write a letter but life sometimes gets in the way and things happen....so please be understanding if that occurs.

Registration now closed

Thanks everyone for participating! Now the fun begins. Registration is closed.

I will go through all your emails and try to match people up as best I can with the info you have sent me. I will send you each an email with the name and address of your partner and a bit of info about them. It is then all up to you!
Some ideas for your letters might be to include a photo of yourself and family, a post card from where you live, a favourite recipe, poem, memories of childhood, what you are up to today, dreams, favourite things, why you were compelled to sign on to this, etc. Just a few prompts:)

So now I have to get to work!
Cheers, Shelagh
