Lightning CAN strike the same place twice

Today I got my Anthropologie catalog in the mail.  They had a photo of a sheep wearing boots!  AHHHH.   Look how soft that sheep looks!  Hahaha I just love them so much.  Today Megan finally received the package that I sent her for her birthday!  So now I can tell you guys the secret project that Megan, Ilene, Shawni, Sandy & I are all doing!  A while ago Megan mentioned that she wanted to be part of something like the Sisterhood of Traveling Pants and have something that traveled around from person to person.  So I thought it would be awesome if the five of us has some sort of journal that we would write in, then send to the next girl!  I'm sooooooooooo excited to do this project with them!  It's going to be such a blast. Plus they are all soooo creative, I'm going to be so inspired every time that I receive the journal in the mail!  I'm sure that I'll be posting some photos on my blog of what I write in it, maybe they will be too!  It's going to be so fun.  If you have a friend or some friends that live far away from you, maybe you could do something like this with them?  Or let me know if you've ever done anything like this!

  1. That is the funniest idea ever! I definitely want to try that. Hmmmm.... I wonder if I could modify it and do something like that with my French classes.
    And I absolutely love the sheep with the boots! I didn't know they sent their catalogues to Canada! Soooo great :)

  5. When I was in high school, my BFF and I did something very similar to this when she moved out of state. We did it for years & years. It was awesome & we both have some really fantastic mementos to look at every now & again <3

  6. What a fun idea! I wouldn't know what to do with such a book; I'd probably feel all this pressure to create/doodle something awesome and then would just end up writing down a grocery list....

    I can't wait to see what you do with it!!

  13. Admission: I'm afraid of sheep. It's in the eyes, I think. The little, beady eyes...

  15. I love love love doodle type journals and stuff like that. I think this is a really cool idea! My planner kind of looks like the top one most years, but it is a little less pretty. Haha. I wish. I love this kind of stuff.

  21. When I was younger I had a best friend that I shared everything with. However, in 5th grade, she moved to California...So since, then we've snail mailed composition books to each other, filled with photos, cds, and flash drives. I am now a college Sophmore, and we are composition book #589 and still counting. The best way to go about it, is to do it monthly, so you don't have to over catch up.. Just a thought. Have fun, and enjoy, pen palling can be an amazing experience.
