My apologies friends that I’m getting this up so late. I’ve backdated this post, just as a FYI.
I’m sad to say that June is going to be my last Foodie Pen Pal month for a while. This is my 10th month to participate, but unfortunately I’m going to take a little break from the program for a while!
I still think this program is amazing and y’all should definitely sign up if you are looking to make some blogger friends. Unfortunately for me – life is about to get way crazy and I’m trying to back off the optional responsibilities as much as I can, to make time for the new required responsibilities that are about to jump on my plate!
In case you don’t know what Foodie Pen Pals is, here’s a quick overview:
The Foodie Pen Pals is a pretty simple concept. We all signed up to receive a pen pal and we were supposed to send them a hand-packed package of food, costing only $15. Homemade treats can also be sent! The purpose is to expose fellow bloggers (and readers!) to new foods and all share our love of food! If you want a little more detail, check out founder Lindsay’s post to read the details.
If you want to sign up for the November swap, just email Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
-Your full name
-Your email address
-Your blog name/address
-Your twitter handle (if applicable)
She needs your email by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 5th!
This month I sent my package to Monica from Mon Makes Things. Check out her blog if you want to see the package I sent her! Her pictures are adorable of the package I sent her!
My package came from Christy at Chocolate Covered Diamonds.
Here’s what she sent me:
Loaded backed potato popcorn & white cheddar jalapeno popcorn
Figs, dates and apricots – mmmmm
Almond crunch snacks – these are really good too!
And some trail mix, but somehow when I uploaded the picture – it only uploaded half of it. Weird, right?
Thank you Christy for the goodies!
