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!
