New storage system

Standard

Over the holidays I decided I wanted to sort my Postcrossing cards into countries and also make a bigger box for them.

postcrossing-box-1

I re-used a shoe box that had already been re-used once to wrap one of my Christmas presents.

postcrossing-box-2

I made dividers from coloured card and labeled them with the postcrossing codes for each country.

postcrossing-box-3

Here’s my finished box with plenty of room to add more cards 🙂

postcrossing-box-4

I don’t normally have time for such projects, so really enjoyed doing it!

Pen pal Exchange

Here’s another mail swap with Antoni in Spain.

He sent me this postcard for Osborne brandy because my sir name is Osborn. 🙂

I have so many mail exchanges to show you,I can’t believe how slow I’ve been!

This lovely mail is from my dear friend Susanne who lives in Germany. I have this lovely oversized postcard pinned up now but it’s so difficult to know which side I like the best!

Outgoing Postcrossing cards

Standard

I often forget to record my outgoing Postcrossing cards, when I write them, I want to quickly get them stamped and posted. So here’s some I sent recently.

To Antji in Germany and Susan in USA I sent a postcard with a photo I took on the beach this summer where lots of people were having a lovely time!
