Group 1- Nnenna and Cat
"Hi there- this Nnenna from star-crossed smile! I had so much fun participating in Package Pals and getting to know my pal Cat from the UK! We discovered we shared a mutual obsession with nail polish, so of course I had to pick up a bottle for her and things took off from there :) Check out what else we exchanged and I already can't wait for the next round of Package Pals! -Nnenna"
"Hey guys! My name's Cat & my gorgeous package pal is Nnenna. I'm from England & she's from New York. I absolutely love buying presents for other people, so when Gentri asked me to take part in Package Pals, I jumped at the chance! I've had so much fun finding presents for Nnenna. So please have a look at what we swapped & I hope all of you will consider taking part in the next swap 'cos it's such an amazing experience! -Cat"
Group 2- Amber and Rita
"Package Pals was such a great experience! I really enjoyed meeting a new friend, especially since I'm new to the blogging world. Its great to see that snail mail is still important to some people! I enjoyed expanding my crafts knowledge to make my package special and really hope to continue writing to my pal in the future. I just hope Rita enjoys everything I sent her! -Amber"
"I`m Rita, I'm from Portugal and It was ever so fun to take part of the Package Pal experience.
My PP was Amber Kozo and she is from Maryland, U.S.A. We had to put together a package full of goodies and send to each other, can you imagine having more fun?! It was really fun changing e-mails and getting to know Amber better -Rita"
Group 3- Amanda and Kristy
"Cincinnati goes to Australia: Hey everyone, my name is Amanda and I'm from Cincinnati. My amazing package pal is Kristy who happens to be from Australia! Getting to know Kristy has been a blast and it has been so fun putting together items that are unique to my amazing city. Here's a sneak peak of what was sent her way! -Amanda"
"A pocketful of Australia with a sprinkling of travel inspirations. My name is Kristy Bayliss and I live on the Gold Coast in Australia. Participating in package pals was just as rewarding as I thought it would be. I have made a great new friend in Amanda and we heaps of things in common. It was great to learn all about her home town of Cincinnati and I can't wait to hear more. My package for Amanda has a little touch of Australia and a small gift that will hopefully inspire her to get on a plane to Paris and explore the world....possibly with a stop over in Australia. -Kristy"
Group 4- Melissa and Nicole
"The oc weekly: a Local mag about our lil town, and the book believe with quotes from wine the pooh (my fav) and other motivating people! An orange crush to represent the city of orange. Tons of fun old fashioned candy from out local antique stores.. A magnet from our local soda fountain! The finished package getting put in a box to ship! Southern California meets Northern California... Some would say California is California... Wrong! My package pal Nicole and I came from two place so close yet so far from each other you would think they were different countries! Package Pals was a great experience and I can wait until the next round!! -Melissa"
"My package pal was from Orange county here in California where I am from, although, Northern and Southern California are like two different countries! But really, this was an awesome experience and I would do it again in a second. I have told a few friends about this and they want to do it so badly! I was so excited to learn about my new pal and check out her blog. I feel blessed to have made a new friend. Great idea Gentri! -Nicole"
Group 5- Kacey and Kirsten
"Hey everyone!! My name is Kacey and I am from the middle of Canada! I absolutely love living in the prairies and have really enjoyed getting to know Kirsten who currently lives in D.C. There are a lot of differences and similarities between Canada the the United States, and it was fun seeing them surface between Kirsten and I. I thought I'd send her a few things that represent Canada and where I am from. Check out how I view my country with the items I sent to my Package Pal! -Kacey"
I hope everyone enjoyed seeing what all of these wonderful ladies sent. It was such a fun experience and I can't wait to do it again soon! I'll keep everyone updated on when exactly that'll be. :)
