i-Hanna Postcard Swap


My track record with postcard swaps is not the best.  I've participated in five now.  One of the five, I never managed to get my card out (and didn't receive one either, thankfully!), and of the other four, I only received one card. But what the heck, I'm a glutton for punishment, so I thought I'd try again!  This time I participated in i-Hanna's swap.  Hanna's in Sweden, and I love to read her blog.  We were to create 10 postcards and then she sent each of us a list of ten people to send our cards to.

There are more than 1000 cards crossing the globe!  Of my ten, six were sent out of the country.  Here I've shared my top three favorites of the 10 I made and sent off on their merry way.  I stuck with the same basic theme since, as is par for the course for me, I waited until the last minute to get them done!  I wanted to do some sewing on them but I never got that far.  You can see all 10 of the cards I created in this Flickr set. I'll share the postcards I receive soon! Hopefully I'll get 10 back!  How about you?  Any good postcard swaps to recommend?

Hey Kelly - I've received 6 postcards from this swap and I only know of two, you & one other so far who have received mine.
I had to send 4 out of country, so I'm hoping they get everywhere safely.

Hi Patti! I sent six out of country as well, so we'll keep our fingers crossed!

Kelly - thanks so much for the fabulous card! I have received 7 so far but have only heard from 4-5 that received mine (including Patti who commented above :)). I'm also hoping they got safely everywhere, as most of mine were sent abroad. I'm hosting a swap if you're interested & feel like treating yourself to another round of "punishment."

Hi Kelly, I wanted to say that I'm the lucky recipient of one of your postcards! It's made it safe and sound and is very happy in it's new German home. Thank you so much for your beautiful mail art.

I"ll be putting up a post next week of the second half of the cards I've received. Feel free to stop by!!

Best wishes for all your happy creations, tj
