#PoutinePenPals Hello! I was wondering if you would be interested in starting a small Pen Pal group with me? I've been inspired by all the LitsyLove mail lately. However, I wanted to just do Canadians, to better connect with my peoples, and to keep costs lower. I'm also looking for a smaller group so I don't over commit myself. Interested?⬇️

LeahBergen I‘ve been somewhat hesitant (and intimidated) to join any sort of pen pal thing because I‘m sure I wouldn‘t keep up and then I‘d be a “bad pen pal”. 😆😆 (edited) 8mo
PurpleyPumpkin I‘ve been thinking that I‘d like to get involved in a group pen pal exchange. But all the groups have seemed so huge that I was put off a bit. If it‘s a small group and there aren‘t too many firm deadlines, I‘m in! Like @LeahBergen I don‘t want to considered to be a bad participant if I fall a bit behind. Thanks for tagging me @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego !👍🏽 8mo

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @PurpleyPumpkin @LeahBergen I was intimidated by the big groups too! That's why I didn't advertise openly. We'll just start off small. There will be no pressure, just send off a little note when you feel like it. Its 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego It's just meant to be fun. 8mo
PurpleyPumpkin That sounds great! I‘m definitely in. 🙌🏽 8mo
FantasyChick Sure, sign me up! I've thought about doing some of the bigger groups but I just don't have the discipline for that, lol. Casual and small works for me 😊 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Yay! So then for those who want to participate can you send me an email with your Full Name, Litsy Handle, Mailing Address & Birthday. Then once I have everyone's info I'll share it with the group. 😊 danielle_gangur@hotmail.com @PurpleyPumpkin @LeahBergen @FantasyChick @thereadingowlvina @RaimeyGallant 💌 8mo
RaimeyGallant I have always been a terrible pen pal unfortunately. Like, the worst. I moved from NS to Manitoba in grade nine, and could only manage a month of it...thank goodness facebook came along because it was my opportunity to reconnect. 8mo
RaimeyGallant Love the hashtag so much, though. 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 🍁 Hello Canadian Littens. We're looking for a few more Littens to join our small litsylove inspired #PoutinePenPals group. If you're interested shoot me an email with your details danielle_gangur@hotmail.com 🍁 @tournevis @TheKidUpstairs @ShelleyBooksie @Tianarose @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @CouronneDhiver @xicanti @TK-421 @quirkthenerd @BookishTrish @DaveNeufeld @huntersmom1977 @LA_Mead 8mo
ShelleyBooksie I'm in 8mo
tournevis @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I've though about it, but I'm cutting stuff out of my schedule, right now, not adding, no matter how appealing. Sorry. 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @ShelleyBooksie Awesome! Since I already have most your info, I just need your birthday then! 😁 8mo
FantasyChick Holy crap! I just realized that I forgot to send you an email. My mind lately... I swear 🤯 Going to shoot you off one now before I forget.. again lol 8mo
LA_Mead @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Sounds like fun! Count me in! 8mo
huntersmom1977 I‘d be more than happy to do this 😊 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @huntersmom1977 great! Just email me you're name, address, handle & birthday. 😁 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Hello Littens! Looking to start a small low commitment 🍁Canadian🍁 pen pal group #PoutinePenPals & it was suggested to me you might be interested? If you are, shoot me an email with your Full Name, Litsy Handle, Mailing Address & Bday danielle_gangur@hotmail.com @Bookish.SAM @Andrea4 @Bibliogeekery @candority @Chellebearss @teebe @DebbieGrillo @KarynGood @kelseynicburke @mcctrish @Melissa_J @sherryvdh 8mo
teebe I‘m in! Will send an email in the morning. 8mo
Bookish.SAM Interesting!! I‘d probably suck as a pen pal but I do like the idea of collecting up the Canadians for easier swaps or even meet ups? I‘ll send an email and once you sort out the plans I‘ll figure out if I can commit to this round. 8mo
candority This sounds like so much fun! I‘m only hesitating because I know that I will be moving frequently (~ every 4 months) for the next couples of years. I could use my parents address, but that might slow my response. What do you think? 8mo
kelseynicburke I‘m in! I‘ll send an email :) 8mo
Melissa_J As much as I love the idea, I‘m awful at execution. I‘m delinquent enough with my two current penpals, sadly, so I‘ll have to pass. 8mo
KarynGood Sounds intriguing! Will email you for more details! 8mo
mcctrish Sounds like fun and I will email 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @candority Hmm. Well it is meant to be casual so your contact address could be your parents, and you don't have to write with everyone necessarily. Also, Postcards from each new place is always a fun idea. It's up to you, and what you're comfortable managing. 😊💌 8mo
Chellebearss Interesting idea. What would it involve? 8mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian This sounds lovely but I am way overcommited to too many things already! Thanks for thinking of me 😀 8mo
xicanti I‘m super tempted (because MAIL!), but I don‘t think I could go all in with this right now. I love that it exists, though! 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Chellebearss It's just a casual pen pal group. I will collect everyone's contact info & share with the group. Then you can decide if you want to write to all or just a few. Nothing major just a little notecard to say hello. Very similar or litsylove or jb. 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @xicanti No problem! But we're here if you ever change your mind 😊 8mo
candority I think I‘m going to have to say no for now, but if you are ever looking to expand the group I would definitely be interested! I just need life to settle down a bit first 😊 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @candority That totally understandable. Sounds like you have some very interesting things going on! 8mo
TK-421 Thanks for the invite! I‘m afraid I won‘t be able to participate right now but I love the idea! 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @TK-421 That's ok! You're always welcome if you change your mind 😊 8mo
twohectobooks I am intrigued by this idea but haven‘t made it through the whole thread. 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @twohectobooks please join us! It will be fun & super casual. If you have any questions please feel free to email me danielle_gangur@hotmail.com 8mo

After much deliberation, and an arm@injury from stitching (who knew you could hurt yourself performing passive crafts?) I have decided on a book for #PoutineAndPaperbacks Round 3.

So, the photo is of the offending stitching project (which I‘m completely in love with and that‘s probably why I‘m hurt - stitching 12 hour days on end).

P.S. I couldn‘t tag anyone

DGRachel That looks lovely. I bet it‘s going to be spectacular when finished! 1y
LeahBergen This is gorgeous! 😮 1y
Ingerella That's just beautiful! 1y

Wife Can you post information about the pattern? It‘s so pretty!😍 1y
drokka @Wife The pattern is a stitch-along (ten or so rows published per week) called Weavers‘ Tapestry Band Sampler and is available for free from MagicalQuilts.blogspot.com. You select your fabric, and threads. (edited) 1y
Wife Oh thanks! I‘ll look it up. 🌹 1y
Quirkybookworm This is beautiful!! One of my co workers does the same thing and I‘m tempted to learn! 1y
