We Love Snail Mail

Guys, I had been planning something for my blog. Something that would be fun, that would give me some more new blog friends. Or something that would be creative. I thought of loads of things then our door knocked, Noor got a mail. I got my answer. WE NEED TO SNAIL MAIL! 
Then my mind ended up landing on this program called "We Love Snail Mail" Me and Noor are bringing this for our awesome readers to have a little fun in Bloggyland. There was once a snail mail exchange at Melyssa's blog and I found my blog bestie Natalie from that mail exchange!

We Love Snail Mail

What is We Love Snail Mail?
Its a monthly mail exchange program. Every month, you will be paired with a new partner and exchange mails, hand written letters, emails and become friends in a few weeks. We'll try our best to pair up two different cultured persons so you can make friends from different cultures and countries. Then you'll have to send your partner a small package.

How to do this?
The mail shouldn't be more than 5$-7$. Handmade items and handwritten letters are more than appreciated. It'd be more special if you include something that reflects your country's culture. Once you get your mail, it'd be more fun if you blog about this or Instagram it and link up here. Me & Noor love to receive happy mails and we'd love if you join us too.

When you can sign up?
It's our first time so we're opening the sign ups from 26 June to 5 July. Once started, we'll take sign ups from 1st of the month to 5th of the month.
