About a month ago, I joined Postcard Crossing. I think I found the link on one of one regular PFF contributors blog. So far I've mailed out 14 cards and gotten 9 back from places as far flung as Latvia, Dallas, the Auvergne region of France, Slovenia, Ghent, Arkansas, The Netherlands, St. Louis and New Mexico.
Winkflash. The site is easy to use. Cards are as low as .39 each. Using your own photos, you can make as many or few of each image as you like. I had a great time picking out pictures of landscapes, pretty southern homes, buildings downtown and some of my own artwork to have printed on glossy postcard weight paper.
Which brings me to my offer. If anyone would like to exchange postcards with me, leave me a comment or email me with your address and I'll send my address back to you and drop a card in the mail to you this week. I'd love to see your neck of the woods and read a little something about you or where you're from.

Now, let's trade!
I love the idea behind the post card exchange and post card friendship. Particularly in today's day and age, when everyone is only using email. There is nothing more personal than a written letter or a card...ReplyDelete
This post reminds me of the fact that I owe you a promised card; I have not forgotten, it will be on its way shortly.:)
I'd love to do a trade! I'll email you. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the link to Winkflash. I must find out more because that sounds very good.
I am going to check out Winkflash.ReplyDelete
A great idea, however I make my own envelopes and haven't been bitten by the postcard bug just yet. However - I'm keeping Winkflash in mind!ReplyDelete
Postcrossing sounds fun. I think I'm going to have to check out the link you posted!ReplyDelete
Lovely cards in your post and I especially like the Carousel card that you made at Winkflash. I love carousels. The one here at our zoo has all zoo animals. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
I especially love that aerial view of the city...gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I made a postcard recently from a downloaded photo with permission from the website, of course... I think I need to send it to you ... I dont need one in return, you've already given me some fabulous cards .. two of which are now framed!ReplyDelete
I too love to purchase and send postcards. I encourage my friends to send cards when they go on trips. They usually just hand one over to me when they return. Ha...ReplyDelete
I really enjoy seeing yours.
Remember when I BEGGED you for one from our Orient Express blog day? I lurve it and proudly have it displayed on my refrigerator. Everyone comments on it and when I tell them you made it, you get a round if applause!ReplyDelete
am reading so much about postcrossing - i MUST check it out! as a collector of vintage postcards i'm actually really bad at sending cards...something i need to fix!ReplyDelete
I cherish the card you sent to me. Original in every way.. the words.. and especially your art.ReplyDelete
Honey that banner of yours knocks my woo socks off! You are a photoshop whiz! It's pure eye candy lady!ReplyDelete
I love your carousel horse. I have an old childs horse in the back yard that I plan on painting wonderfully. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyDelete
I am a scrappbooker, but it is a very long process. I started with a company called Creative Memories and I do like it but it is a lot of work. I have a friend that doesn't scrap either and I convinced her to buy a Power Sort box that creative memories sells, and just sort and label you photos, they can remain in that box forever. It took us a weekend of sorting and talking but 30yrs of photos done. Labeled, and ready for storage neatly and safely. Creative Memories is a world wide company if you go on line you could find someone close to home that will help you. I ONLY use Creative Memories Products for my photos, I use everything else in other paper creations, but most of my photos are not replaceable and I can't risk not having them.
Sorry I had to post again, I got so excited with your photos, I didn't read your first paragraph. what a great idea, I love getting postcards too. Post card crossing, I'll have to check that out.ReplyDelete
These are just lovely. Happy PFF a little late. (grin)ReplyDelete
I would love to exchange postcards. I will look for one this week. I will also look for the chips, I love Baked Lays! My favorite sub would be turkey with lettuce, tomatoes, sweet peppers and light honey mustard! Always served with a large Diet Coke!ReplyDelete
What a fabulous idea!ReplyDelete
Yes !! I love to trade postcard with you too :)ReplyDelete
