Beautiful Postcards Arriving

Postcards arriving from Postcrossing is a real treat, I never know which country they are going to come from.

This card is from Andreea in Romania, can you see the figure of the woman made from books? We have decided to continue exchanging cards with each other.

Outgoing Mail

I love sending out Postcrossing cards, trying to send something people will like. Most people list there favourite things on their profile, so I can hunt through my stash and find something they will like. Otherwise I make a new postcard.

The first card was to Nina in Belgium who likes old film stills and the second to Sallie in the USA who loves the ocean.


The first one here is to Michael in Germany who likes pictures where people live and the second is to Aileen in Ukraine who likes cows. It’s good to think you might be able to make someone happy with a postcard.

This next letter is to Wendy in Canada who was a paper swap partner and we decided to try and keep in touch and share about what art projects we are doing with each other.
