Scrumptious Scribblings

So here it is, Scrumptious Scribblings.

I had this idea, that I posted about a week or so ago, prompted by the marvellous (and missed!) Alison from Brocante Home taking a break. Now I know that sometimes we all need a break from our blogs, holidays, adventures and so on call us away. But wouldn’t it be marvellous if we could still keep in touch? Some kind of delicious reward for just a teeny effort?

So this is it, Scrumptious Scribblings, and this is how it works. Drop me an email at scrumptiouscribblings@yahoo.co.uk (yes it is just one ‘s’ touch typing too fast causes mistakes, it seems!) to tell me you would like to play, and your postal address, then I will email you my own postal address. Send to me whatever you would like to send- perhaps an account of a recent adventure in the charity shops, perhaps a recipe, a bit about a book you have read- anything delicious you would like to share. I will copy each little missive I receive, assemble the whole into a delightful bundle, and mail them out, so that everyone in our little circle will get a lovely fat envelope stuffed with lovely letters dropping through their letterbox.

As far as time scales go, I will send out the first bundle at the end of the first week of June. So that gives you all of May to get in touch with me, then send me your first missive! If that works for everyone, I will always send out the first week of each month, and send everything that I have received in time.

I am so excited for this, that I can hardly wait to begin! While it would be wonderful to have everyone contribute regularly, I don’t want anyone to feel tied down to contributing every single month. I want this to be a pleasure rather than a chore! You will still be in the circle, and will still get a bundle of scribblings delivered to your door! Perhaps you could also send in a little introduction for the readers (oh, how I hope there are readers! I hope there are a few of you out there who want to join in!) a little tiny bit about you. (no need for personal details, just give us a flavour of who you are!) I love the description at www.vintagepretty.blogspot.com , to give you an idea .Anyone from overseas is welcome to join, although because of post times, perhaps you might rathero email me your contribution for the months scrumptious scribblings? Of course you may write if you prefer, but this way may work out to be a little more practical.

I feel I have rambled enough. I hope I have said everything I need to. Any questions, just leave me a comment, or email me. I just cannot wait to be sticking stamps onto the first batch of envelopes to go out!

Oooh, sounds like fun, count me in (I'll send an email when I'm online longer)... I can't wait!

So glad I stopped by to see how this idea was doing... I am definitely in! I can't wait for that first bundle, and I am off to write my missive right now!

Mimi, this is a wonderful idea - I can't commit to it at the moment but would love to hear how it goes. I am sometimes forgetful and would hate to let others down

I really like the sound of this, even though I am a very new blogger and my computer is waiting to be overhauled and only lets me use it for a short time before it has terrible tantrums! It is nice to get things by snail mail...It is exciting.
