Snailmail



I like sending postcards and letters. In a world full of e-mail and text message where everything is sent and received in an instant I think we tend to forget how nice it is to long for something. Or someone. Don’t you think it is so much nicer to receive a handwritten note that says I love you, maybe even with a faint sent of the writer than a text message accompanied only with a beep? I do anyway!

That’s why I am attending ihannas DIY postcard swap and that’s why I have been making postcards this weekend. Ten postcards for ten different persons from all over the world and I will receive 10 in return.





I used handpainted paper with vintage lace, buttons and photos. I had so much fun making them! I will start sending out mine tomorrow and they will be sent to the UK, Australia, USA, Czechoslovakia, Sweden and Japan.

I don’t know what I enjoy the most – sending or receiving? But what I do know is that I will enjoy the waiting very much!

Take care
Jeanette

I'm doing the swap, too. Your cards are lovely! I especially like buttons and butterflies, so there were several that really appealed to me.

These cards are really sweet. I had no idea buttons could go through the postal system. I figured they'd get ripped off. How brave!!

Best wishes from germany, tj

@Bridgit: Woohoo! It's mine now :)

Dear Jeanette! Thanks a lot for your really great card! It made me smile a lot when I opened the envelope. I'll go and find a nice place for it in my flat!

All the best, Maja x
