National Postcard Week - Postcard Swap - May 6 2012

Good Morning.  If you are a lover of postcards more than likely you are aware that National Postcard Week is fast approaching.  This year I want to hold my very first National Postcard Week Swap.  A simple concept: you simply send a postcard to someone during this week and you will receive one back from them.  I think this is a wonderful way to build up a personal postcard collection, see something new and creative and you never know you may pick up a penpal that has the same love for postcards!

If you would like to participate in the swap here is what I would like you to do by April 29th so that I have time to organize the list:
        ♥Comment your interest below
        ♥Leave your email address (I suggest in a
          format that can't be picked
          up by spammers such as   
          butterflyintheattic at yahoo dot com) 
        ♥Indicate if you would like to have it
           mailed with the postage on it or in a
           seperate envelope so it will be unused.

Once I get the list of everyone interested on April 29th I will start to email people to get there addresses and make a list of people interested in participating.  I will send another email with the list to each of you and from there it will be up to everyone to follow through and send out their postcards.  Please make sure that you send one to each of the people on the list, I don't want anyone to have to be like Charlie Brown and going to an empty mail box every day LOL. 

The sender will choose the card they send to you; it can be handmade or commercial (mine will be from my own handmade designs.)   I prefer mine mailed and if there is time a nice message would make things even more interesting.  If you have any questions please post them also since others may have the same thing running through there mind; I will check back and answer. 

I hope to see you on the list this should be very fun.
