A Contest, Some Post Cards and Outgoing

Good evening, all!

To begin with - a contest! We need more followers around these parts, so what I'm going to do is hold a month long contest, beginning tonight and ending Monday, April 26th. For every person you get to "Follow Me" here on the blog, you will get a point. I'll add up everyones points and at the end of the contest, the winner will get a package from me that will include:

* A Magnetic notepad
* A spring-themed journal
* 10 sheets of stickers
* A set of 20 recipe cards

Make sure that the people you get to sign up post a comment on the blog, preferably on this post in perticular OR they can e-mail me at: and that they tell me YOU referred them. It's that simple :)

So get the word out - get people into the snail-mailing mood!

Yesterday my husband, mother in law and I went to the Toronto Zoo and I was ecstatic about getting some postcards for swapping. The gift shop only had generic postcards of animals, but they were a great price, so I nabbed them anyways - I may host an animal related postcard swap on swap-bot sometime this weekend, so look for it next week.

And on the outgoing, a package and letter waaaay over-due to my penpal Amy:

And that's it for today - everyone have a great weekend! Hubby and I are going to a collectibles auction on Saturday morning and I'm excited about it - I doubt we'll come home with anything, though. Looks like a pricey one ;)

Good luck with your followers contest. I have no way to track this, but I've added this blog to my own Letter blogs list on my blog. People have told me in the past that they get a fair number of hits from this, since I have a pretty regular list of daily viewers.

Anyway, I just found your blog (from the ad on swap-bot - way to go there!) and am really enjoying it. Keep up the good work!

How fun!
I will try to follow you to get more points.
I love the color purple that you added to your site but it's a little difficult to read the purple writing with the black in the background.
I'm looking forward to checking out the Mary and Max film about pen pals. I love claymation films,
especially Wallace and Gromit, I recommend .
