New Year Postcrossings

I’m excited to start my Postcrossings for 2020. I don’t know who I’m going to meet or what countries I’m going to send to or receive from. I’ve been a member of this project for Nine years and have sent 637 postcards around the planet and I’ve also received 637 postcards. That is totally spectacular, who’d have thought it possible. 🙂

My first postcards for this new year are to

Chen in Taiwan, Irina in Russia,

Cynthia in China,  Melanie in Germany

Mazli in Malaysia and Alena in Slovakia

Six different countries straight away, a very good start!

Outgoing Postcrossing Cards

Oooh, I didn’t realise how long it has been since I shared some mail with you. I was doing some art ready for an art exhibition which was taking up a lot of time. O have still been sending and receiving mail though so have lots to show you! 🙂

These postcards have gone to Min Cheng in Taiwan and Ingred in Netherlands,

W Chang Australia and Heleena Finland

and Zong He in China and Marina in France.

What a super thing it is to be able to touch peoples lives across the world without using social media. Handwriting a note is always special! 🙂

Very Warm Postcrossings

Wow, we’re having a bit of a heatwave here in the UK and I’m having trouble keeping up with things. I’m writing my postcards but not managing to share them.

These are very recent arrivals in my mailbox.

These first two are from China and Russia.

These are from the UK and Belarus and unbelievably the first one is a sand sculpture, Wow!

This last one is from Tina in Taiwan and she has send me this lovely handmade card. I especially love handmade! 🙂

Now I’m going to have a very cold drink 🙂
