PenPal of the Month June 2011

As you know, the PenPal of the Month Contest has new rules. The winners are selected via a vote button on our website. Because of the change in the rules we are now announcing the winners of the PenPal of the Month Contest June 2011 -  Julie and Salome!!! Congratulations



Julie Priest, England nominates Salome Biver, France:

"I have been penpals with Salome for a couple of years, since this time our friendship has grown, and although Salome is many miles away I feel like I have made a true friend. Salome is a very special young woman who, like myself, loves stationery, cute writing sets and stickers, and she spends her time decorating her letters, which I must say always look lovely. I wish that Salome would believe in herself more as she is a lovely, honest and loyal person. I’m sure that one-day she’ll come to realize this. Salome is a fantastic penpal and that’s why I nominate her." 

TOTAL VOTES: 223!!! Congratulations, girls! You are our PenPal of the Month June 2011 WINNERS! Emails informing you of the next steps to get your awards have been sent.

Lora Gibb, United Kingdom nominates Kerrie Foulsham, United Kingdom:

"Kerrie is almost 6 months pregnant ,mum of 4 and an absolute treasure . She still makes time for her 52 ( a few more now I think ) penpals and always writes gorgeous , kind hearted letters that make me LOL . She's recently had tummy pains and been in a lot of pain due to this but she still makes time to write beautiful letters on lush paper decorated with beautiful stickers & deco tapes . I saw her talking about Label Bags on Facebook and I was intrigued ,when I received her letter the other day she had popped in some label bags for me to look at and understand ! She's amazing ! So understanding & patient , and we've got so much in common ! We've got 8 ( plus one ) kiddies between us so we've lots to talk about ! I truly think she's brilliant and this and all above is why I think she's got to be Penpal of the Month .Winning would cheer her up immensely && the prize would suite her down to a tee ... she's obsessed with cute stationary , and now that's she's had to limit herself to buying any more due to saving for baby , I think winning would be the cherry on the cake :) Thank you for reading and letting me enter Kerry . :) X"


Andy Hoang, United Kingdom nominates Mim, USA:

"I met Mim through the mailart and postal networks after opening my blog at Mim started writing regularly and I wrote back, but it was when we started chatting about mailart that we really hit it off. Both of us make and send mailart, but additionally both of us also teach classes about sending mailart and we found we had so much in common. This year, when I got married, Mim came over with her husband and attended our wedding - we were so excited! She brought gifts of rubber stamps and postcards and we had a blast! Mim then went on to visit a number of other mailartists across Europe and made mailart with each one. Not bad for a 71 year old huh! She was exactly as I imagined her, but with even more energy than I could ever have dreamt of! Next year we hope to go and return the visit, by going to see her in the USA. In the meantime, we are both arranging mailart shows and talks on our respective sides of the Atlantic and really keep each other going!"
