Looking for new pen pals :)

It seems I've lost about a third of my pen pals during this past year or so and because of that I am looking for a few new pen pals.

-Name: Lene
-Age: 28 (but I'll turn 29 this month. *yay*)
-Location: Odense, Denmark
-Occupation: Student at the university of Southern Denmark. Religion (religion history) is my major and history is my minor. I am currently working on my M. A. thesis which is a mix between folklore, religion, history and social science, i guess.

-Main interests: penpalling, gardening, living a low-impact life (though i don't want to go extreme with this), learning (about) languages, history, religion, reading books, crafting (knitting, crocheting, polymer clay, collages, decorating notebooks/boxes/other items.... etc), stamp collecting and a lot of other things... :)

-What genres of music are you into? My fav genres are black metal, death metal, folk/viking metal but my fav bands are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Deep Purple... I also listen to some punk, pop, electronic music and rock.

-Favorite books: I love all i've ever read from the Danish author Kenneth Bøgh Andersen (he writes fantasy and horror stories), but I also really like the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (some day after i've graduated from the uni, i will finally find the time to read the complete series!) and the Spook's Books by Joseph Delaney. Besides fantasy i prefer to read
non-fiction books. I am currently reading a book about fossil finds in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire but have also just recently read books about mindfullness, living green, slavery, horror comedy movies and... i guess this indicates that when it comes to non-fiction I am open to almost all themes. LOL.
I am currently really really interested in pre-Christian Scandinavia, Scandinavian folklore and green living

-Favorite movies: The two all-time fav movies are "Nosferatu" and "Freaks". I do like b/w movies a lot (especially the horror-ones) but i like a lot of genres. I like horror movies a lot (though I've had this accidental ability to avoid some of the VERY famous ones like "nightmare on elm street" and "friday the 13th"), i also love a good (well... bad. LOL) action movie, comedies (in the "genre" where "Ace Ventura" and "Kung Pow" belong), some fantasy movies, lots of thrillers and... recently i've found a liking of old war-movies.

-Describe your ideal penpal: My ideal penpal should be willing to write long letters (i personally write letters that usually are 10-25 pages long), he/she must write handwritten letters (i always write by hand), he/she must be ok with the fact that i sometimes am a bit late (though never more than about 4 months) with my letters as sometimes other things in my life are more important than writing letters (this of course also means that i am perfectly fine with my pals being a little late with letters from time to time, too), we must share at least some interests ( i find it really hard to write with people i have nothing in common with) and he/she must be ok with the fact that i can sometimes be very direct and honest in my letters (i've had some bad experinces with this before so i need to make this clear. I never ask about something or make a comment just to hurt my pal.... i do it because i am interested in the answer and i am interested in getting to know my pal better). Oh, and I need my new pen pal to be ok with the fact that i rarely write questions in my letters, so just comment on whatever you want to in my letters :D
I think this is the main things in an ideal pen pal for me. This also hopefully give my new pen pals an idea about what "kind" of pen pal I am. :)

-What age do you want them to be? I'd prefer them to be about 27-32. If you're older/younger than this and think that we could really get a good friendship still, please convince me to be your new pen pal ;)
-What sex do you want them to be? Either
-What country do you want them to be from? Anywhere, really. :)

Hey guys I'm trying to get two things going here:

1)I also thought it would be cool to find a group of 4-5 people and start a round robin. Basically I would get a notebook, write in it/decorate it and send it to the first person who would read it, do the same then send it to the next person etc... the book would go through the list on a continous loop until it is full - then we can buy a new one!

Email me at if you're interested!


2) I'd like to find a group of girls to start an email group. I'm hoping to find people who are willing to email back and forth on a regular basis to talk about life, give advice, share pictures and various other things. In order to promote emailing there I will send out questions and/or have themes/quizzes/memes to get things going.

It's basically like using a message board but through email.

Again, if you're interested, email me at

scribblers Scribblers Penpals and more

swap swap swap

so... the last few times i posted about wanting to swap envelopes for stationery sheets and stickers there hasn't been too much of a response... but i still got lots of envies and i'm still optimistic about (hopefully) not having to throw them out in the garbage. :)
As mentioned i'd like to get stationery sheets and/or stickers in return. i only have a minimum of what i want in return and that's 1 sheet of paper per 2 envelopes... if you want to send me more than that it's really really really cool, but it's not an absolute must. :)

i have made a few themed "collections" and you can see some of the envies from each "collection" behind this cutCollapse )

SURPRISE Care Packages!!

Hey! My boyfriend is currently deployed and traveling between Kuwait and Iraq. I love sending him care packages, but the cost to send him care packages has gotten out of my budget. I also "adopted a soldier" but I had to put that project aside. I love putting together care packages especially for the troops overseas, so to raise money to continue supporting my soldier as well as others, I'm starting a project. I'm sending out surprise care packages that may include books, trinkets from all over the world (I've been to West Africa, Hawaii, the Philippines, most of the United States, etc), postcards, letters, perfumes, jewlery, CDs, snacks, etc to put together and send to you! The asking price is negotiable based on what you think it should be worth. I want to make these packages to make others happy, and I know how great it feels to get a package through the mail... especially if it's a complete surprise! :)  There will be at least 3 items and I will try and customize it based on what you like and what your interests are.

This idea is completely new for me, so any tips  or hints on how to market this idea would be great.

I apologize to the administrator of this community if this type of post isn't allowed. Just let me know, and I'll take it down immediately.

Thanks for your time!
