Last month, I didn't have to write about my package because neither my giver nor my sender had a blog. I was excited for this month when Becky wrote me. Her blog is fun and it was a great match this month as I love cupcakes (she is a baker) and she is a runner too! She is also from Norman, OK which is a beautiful city! When I got Becky's package, it had the most thoughtful recipe: a sweet potato enchilada which I have never tried to make or to eat and I am really excited to try it. She had no way of knowing but red Twizzlers are a staple at our house. Its our favorite! Thank you Becky! You can follow her on Twitter here.
|How did she know this was my favorite??|
|I am almost scared to open because I know i won't put it down|
|Makes the world go round|
|I can't wait to try her recipe|
|Love Target Salsa!|
This blog should make you join the fun! Here are the Foodie Penpals details:
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-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.
If you’re interested in participating for August, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. You must submit your information by August 4th as pairings will be emailed on August 5th! You will receive a confirmation email from me within 24 hours if you sign up. Pin It
