I am so excited to share this post with you guys because this month I participated in something called Foodie Pen Pals.
Lindsey over at Lean Bean Green hosts this every month for her readers and I am so excited that I got the chance to participate in this exchange this month.
I was assigned to mail a package this month to Connie O. She doesn’t have a blog, but I hope she starts one soon! =). She was so sweet.
My Pen Pal for the month of May was Elizabeth over at Elizabeth’s Dutch Oven and I am so excited to share with you what she sent me!
Do you see all of that??!! So yummy! Zico Coconut Water (MY FAVE!), Granola, Tapatio hot sauce!!! She definitely knew what I loved. 😉
Sorry Dan. But the kids and I really enjoyed them for you. Don’t be mad ;).
Elizabeth did such a great job on my box and I am so glad I participated. I won’t be able to do it again in June as we will be going on vacation, but for sure I will be participating in July.
If you are interested in participating in Foodie Pen Pals for June, here is what you need to know:
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
-Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa.
You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th!
I hope you will join in the fun!
