The September postcard swap is now live! To sign up – fill out the form below.
A few people have asked: “do I have to sign up more than once?” The answer is, “yes.” I don’t have a way to generate a new swap each month using the names from previous months so you will have to sign up for each month individually. This can be a good thing because what if you want to take a break from exchanging postcards? You simply just don’t sign up for the month.
This month’s postcard, featured above, comes from my Spokane Flickr pal, Michael Crites. I have known Michael for a damn long time. Probably around 8 years? Almost too many to count. He’s a very talented photographer and I was very delighted to receive a postcard from him this month. You can check out his work on his Facebook page.
I have to say, I am really enjoying this swap very much. I really enjoy sending out cards and getting one each month makes my day. I have even made up a little scrap book to collect them in. I had fun collaging the cover with stamps received on letters from all over the world. I am kind of in love with the postmarks, as well. I have special stamps that I buy for the postcards I send out. Currently I am using Jimi Hendrix stamps. The Welches, Oregon uses a really cool looking postmark. This might sound weird, but I am tempted to send myself a letter so I can have my very own Jimi Hendrix stamp with a Welches postmark. Anyway, here the cover of my little notebook. I am using a Moleskine Kraft Folio for this. I’ll share more of it when I get stuff inside.
And, last but not least, here is the signup form! If you have questions, ask in the comments. Happy swapping!
