I love receiving receiving good mail. Not bills. Not flyers. Not junk. I participate in swap-bot, an online swapping community and Postcrossing, so if I join swaps and send postcards regularly, I’m sure to find good mail in my mailbox.
I sent a number of postcards out this week for Postcrossing (5) and swap-bot (4). You might recognize a couple of them from the collection I sent out for “Liberate Your Art.” They were sent to postcrossers who enjoy and/or prefer “self-made” postcards. The Simpsons were sent to postcrossers who listed The Simpsons among their favorite postcards. And the seal from the Happy Animals collection by Junoz Terada was sent to an “international” postcrosser who is more interested in the stamps than a particular type of postcard (stamps shown too). The cute little envelope’s name is “Ernie the Envie,” the swap-bot logo. I always enjoy seeing his smiling face in my mailbox, so it was a treat to send one to another swapper (This lucky swapper also received the Puerto Rico PC). The “purple” colored postcards were sent out for a purple-themed photo swap–my own photos, of course. These were done for Sharp Shooters, one of the many groups for photographers of varying skill levels on swap-bot. Enjoy!
