Ohh I'll join in ^^


Name: Latch (nickname lol)
Location: Estonia (don't let it scare you, it honestly isn't THAT far :p
Age: Will be 17 in less than 2 months ^^
Occupation: Student

So, about myself.

People tell me I'm friendly, open minded and caring. Also that I'm different than a lot of people my age (at least over here) because I don't have the same priorities (a.k.a mine don't involve drinking and partying lol) I like to ask a lot of questions and get into long discussions over interesting stuff. I love making new friends and I trust people easily (is that bad, lol?)

I'm always up to learning or trying something new, or teaching someone something new, too.

I like to watch movies of various kinds, same with music, I'll listen to anything as long as I like it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE travelling and different cultures/countries/languages.

If my DNA was off one percentage point, I'd be a dolphin.

I am considering going to uni in the UK when I'm done with school here, because I love english as a language, english as people and england as a country ^^

I usually prefer snail mail to emails. Don't know why though, I guess it's the anticipation of getting the letter.

As to crafts, I knit, crochet, scrapbook, cook and also sew a little.

Sooo, PM me ^^

I love penpals! More so the snail mail kind.

Name~ Emerald
Local ~ South Carolina, USA
Age ~ 23

About me...I have a wonderful hubby, Jeff, and we have a zoo of pets. One dog, Shamrock, two cats, Phoenix and Gypsy, a rabbit, Zebby, and a fish. I love to write, read, play and listen to music, knit, crochet, cook, mostly baking,  make jewelry, glue things together, and learn new stuff. I've been almost everywhere, and want to do it all over again.

Music I like is really varied. I like some punk, lots of old and newer rock, classical, blues, a little of this, a little of that.

Movies, I like a lot of movies, mostly drama or horror. I am a sucker for 80's movies.

Other than that, I collect faeries, masks, anything Eeyore, or Tinkerbell, some things Goodluck bear. Love pirates, mermaids, and four leaf clovers!

Now have one penpal. Always open to more.....

Well, hello you guys.. I'm looking for one more penpal.. heh.. i will paste my profile here again.. but if it's not allowed, my profile is on page 2. Smiley

*I'm Tiffany, people call me tiff or tiffy.
*I live in both Italy and Singapore.
*I'm Chinese(not the China kind, the Singapore kind.. Theres a HUGE difference). They like to call us bananas. You know, yellow on the outside and white on the inside.
*I am nice generally.
*I'm 19 with a 91year old brain as people tell me.
*I quit business school. Am learning business from the School of Life with a PhD(Polytechnic Half-way Dropout). Doing bits of stuff to start building my fashion empire(a bit ambitious I admit).
*I crochet[mostly amiguri(spelling)], knit(so far i havent completed any big projects yet) , make stuffed stuff, make fimo stuff, sew a little(mostly clutches, wristlets), origami(my fav to make is daffodils), bead stuff(jewelery and trinkets), friendship bands, macrame.. so a little bit of everything.
*I love dogs, I think they are like teddies that are alive.
*I like all kinds of colours. I don't think theres such thing as an ugly colour. I think all colours are nice depending on the colour coordination, pattern and material. uhm.. Can't stand sweet colour combinations or too much pink.
*I liked "the curious incident of the dog at night-time" by mark haddon and "carey" by stephen king.
*I like watching the Ellen Degeneres show(ugh), My name is Earl and Striscia(Italian variety show)

I'm not very good with these intro thingy.. I hope this would suffice.  Smiley Look forward to hearing from you!  Kiss PM me!! Cheesy

   Hi! My name is Simi, and I recently turned 18!
   I live in New York.
   I am currently attending a culinary school, studying to become a pastry chef.
   I love animals. If I could, I'd have a whole zoo, but I guess for now my pet cockatiel Disney is good enough.
   I am a vegetarian, thinking of maybe, maybe becoming vegan in the future.
   I enjoy art, which includes, drawing, painting, doodling, and looking at it. I love visiting museums. When someone asks me what I want to do on a free day the answer is go to a museum. I wish I got around to them more often.
   My new favorite TV obsession is Pushing Daisies. I also LOVE The King of Queens. This will always be one of my favorite TV shows. I also love watching Martha Stewart, and shows on the Food Network. My other favorite show is Judge Judy. She is HILARIOUS, though I don't think I'd be laughing if I was in her court room.
   I also like doing puzzle books, such as Fill-It-Ins and Sudoku. I love challenging ones that really get my brain going. It's a great feeling to finish a puzzle that didn't look finish-able.
   I'd have to say my favorite time of year is end of November through December. I LOVE Thanksgiving! I love that cozy Thanksgiving morning feeling, where all you want to do is curl up in a ball and watch the Thanksgiving Parade and Miracle on 34th Street on TV.
   This is all I really have to say for myself right now, but I'm sure if you decide to become my penpal, you'll find out more about me!
   I'd prefer a penpal from Alaska or Hawaii, and if not from there, somewhere on the left coast, in the US. I would like to exchange letters, by snail mail! So if you are interested, please don't hesitate to PM me!
   Thanks and have a wonderful day!!!


I am looking to swap for knitting needles and supplies! If you are interested in doing a PERSONAL SWAP with me, please PM me! Thanks!!!

I thought to myself, Why?. Then answered, Why not? So here goes.

Live physically in the eastern US, but mentally somewhere past the edge of the old maps that read Fill this space.

Ive been contentedly married to my husband/deranged soul mate since July 2002, and expect to remain that way forever. We have 2 wild and wicked children, boy and girl, that keep me fairly run off my ass most of the time. Between the large male hubby-child and my two biologics, the social graces have neatly fallen by the wayside. Ive long thought about having a pen pal, someone I can share thoughts and interests with who wont immediately start pestering me about setting up playdates for our kids or harass me with wanting to carpool or combine shopping days for ease of parenting. I love my kids, but when the young ones are off to bed, I like to try and retain a bit of my former self. Indulge my interests for a while.

Those interests are:
Crafts- I sew (clothes, purses and bags, functional housewares, etc.), cross stitch, use polymer clay, make jewelry, loom bead work, crochet, stamp, decoupage, sketch. Im learning to get the best out of my Photoshop, and am curious to try knitting. Mainly to make amigurumi.

Music- I was a headbanger, but find I dont listen to the old bands so much anymore. My current faves are Gackt, Within Temptation, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, Angela, Evans Blue many more. Mostly goth rock and Japanese Pop, with a lot of anime soundtracks thrown in for good measure.

TV- Not so much. Who has time? I do the dvd thing, and get entire seasons or series of something. Love anime. Different kinds. Gungrave, Get Backers, Haibane Renmei, Rurouni Kenshin, Samurai Champloo, GunSword, Witch Hunter Robin, Fruits Basket, Girls High, etc.

Books- Read and dug the Potters. Who hasnt? Terry Pratchett is my own personal pocket god. I even own Strata, which says most of what you need to know about me. Love manga, and indulge privately in graphic yaoi. But my real passion right now is Natsuo Kirino. Her crime/murder/slice of life novel Out was translated to english and I devoured every page. Now desperately crave anything and everything of hers. And wish I knew Japanese so I could read them without waiting for trans.

Have been insatiably interested in eastern culture for years, and would very much enjoy exchanging letter-space with someone who shares the same, or someone in Japan who would like to tell me about their boring mundane Japanese city life (which I secretly yearn for) while I tell them about my boring mundane American city life (which we stereotypically have the impression they secretly yearn for).

So thats enough of me to give you an ideaLooking forward to hearing from you.

Beware: Someone pretentious is looking back at you.

Hey Smiley
It's been almost 2 years since i last had a penpal :~ they didnt last long, though. I miss so much writing letters and sending lil' stuff about me and my way of life to my penpals all over the world! guess i'm gonna post my bio again.

My name is Danielle, I'm 21 year old brazilian girl. I live in Sao Paulo and never got to know other countries ... Next year will be my last year of Graphic Design college, it's been 3 long years so far! But I like it. Still don't know what I'm gonna do with my life after I graduate.

I live with my parents, brother, my cat Pipo and my boyfriend - who is a photographer - spends most of the time here. I'm willing to move out with him soon, maybe next semester!

I used to craft a lot, now i really don't have that much time when i'm not in vacations from school. But I love to sew, specially purses! I also know how to knit, even though i've never got to finish my first scarf, I'd like to knit more and better. Brazil is really warm, in the end we don't use much wool stuff... I also like origami and other paper crafts like book binding, journal making, paper toys, etc. I like customizing t-shirts too! freehand drawing to stencil.

I love illustration, photography, movies, tv, reading, cooking. I'm a vegetarian and chocolate addicted! I don't drink coffee, but i'm a tea lover.

I'm a Harry Potter fan, but right now i'm focused on reading the books for my graduation project!

My favorite TV shows are CSI, Cold Case, and i'm a Heroes & LOST addicted. I also watch other stuff like Ugly Betty, L Word, Everybody Hates Chris, Queer Eye for a Straight Guy...

I'm a music lover, from electro to rock. My favorite bands/djs/musicians are The Smiths, The Cure, Death Cab for Cutie, Daft Punk, Tegan and Sara, Erlend Oye, M.Ward, DJ Tiga, 2ManyDJs, Madonna.

That's it. I promise to be a good penpal and write as soon as i get your letter. PM me, I have no penpals right now, I can handle 3 or 4! Wink

EDIT: i have 2 penpals, still openf for one more! *11 january 2008*
