This is an idea that just flitted through my mind. Roll Eyes I'm not even sure if it really makes total sense. I was thinking, we could do a swap based on the theme of love letters. Who isn't an old fashioned romantic at heart? Tongue You would make/send items that are somehow connected to love letters.

Here are some examples:I saw a cool necklace recently somewhere on the web that had a tiny pmc envelope pendant. You could send your partner cool stamps to use, beautiful old collector stamps or custom stamps that you can order online now. You could send romantic stickers or stationary to help their letter writing stash. I could think of several cool love letter related t-shirt design ideas. You could make a tote bag for somebody that mimics a mail carrier's bag. You could send a cool box for keeping letters in or some pretty ribbons for tying them in bundles.... And the list could keep going forever.

Anybody think this is a cool idea?

This sounds like a good idea.

It's too bad that all too often e-mailing has taken the place of a good, ink and paper letter with a dash of perfume, and a lipstick seal.
