This fall I discovered a new website while I was surfing the internet one night. I was looking for a site for snail mail pen pals and discovered Swap-Bot. Swap-Bot is an awesome site where you can sign up and take part in different “swaps” they are called. Basically you have a certain criteria you have to follow and you get matched with someone to send it to. For example you might have to send one holiday card and a wrapped teabag to someone you will get matched with who is also a member. Then you will receive a card and teabag too from someone else who was given your address.
Above are some of the envelopes I’ve sent for swaps

It is such a neat site because it allows you to connect with people from all around the world and exchange items, anything from notecards to postcards, scrapbooking stuff, to huge packages of candy. I have received stuff from Israel, Germany, France, U.S.A., Norway, Australia and The Philippines. I recommend you check it out if you like to send and receive mail.
