Pinterest Pal Exchange!

Oh my goodness!  Today I was in the middle of coming up with ideas on how to get together with some girlfriends.  And I had the brilliant idea of a Pinterest Party.  But then came another, even more brilliant idea... a Pinterest Pal Exchange!

Whose ready to get crafty and creative? 

Whose ready to make some new friends?

Here's the deal:

I have come across some amazing women that live out of state and would love to start a penpal/Pinterest Exchange through snail mail!

Every month, you will get paired up with a new Pinterest Pal. You will create a Pinterest-inspired craft or Pinterest-inspired recipe to send to her.  The ideas for this are endless!

The item you mail to your Pinterest Pal should be $20 or less.  Once I get the ball rolling, I will tell everyone a deadline date to mail out your Pinterest Pal box.  That way everyone knows an estimation date of when they should be receiving their package.

If you want to participate:

Since this is the first time trying this, I want to try to  hear from anybody who wants to participate by April 1st (no, this is not an April Fool's joke ;).  Then I will match you with a Pal.

If you want to participate, leave a comment with your name, email address, and state you live in.  If you don't want that made public then email me the info at

I hope this turns out to be a fun experience for everyone! Any feedback about this would be awesome since I'm still working out the kinks of this idea :) Thanks!

  14. However, you-can't merely shift the movie file out of your computer to your PSP
    and visualize it. You are able to access my evaluations of relatively classier
    films (here). I am aware this is simply not the 1930's nowadays.

  15. The great ideas are ultimately applied to the official software
    via improvements. This means that jail breaking cannot
    be an option unless you need to encounter consequences later

  17. I should begin with the disclaimer that jailbreaking is not sanctioned by Apple, so they do not approve.
    There will be a few button presses at certain occasions.
    It is all right there for you to see with simplicity.
