New Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 49

Team Announcement:
I am a little bit behind (shocker) so we are limited in time but May 4th - 10th is National Postcards Week!
That means that we will be hosting another Postcard Swap.  If you are interested in participating it is simple:
Send me your mailing address to ButterflyInTheAttic at yahoo dot com (of course my email address is the traditional format but I write it like this so it isn't picked up by spammers.)

Once I have the completed list I will give everyone participating a copy of this list (I do not use this list for any other reason and only send it to participants.)  During that First week of May send a postcard to each of the people on the list.  Those people will send you one and so you will be receiving several from all over the country.  Last year we had someone from outside the US; What fun!

There will be more information coming this week.  Now onto the Meet and Greet:

Welcome to the Pacific Postcards Team Meet and Greet.  We have a great team that had start simply as an Etsy Team but has branched out into Artfire, G+, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  We would love for you to join are team and help promote New Artistically designed or reproduced postcards, collecting vintage and antique postcards, creating digital art, and anything to do with ephemera and vintage imagery.

First I would like to introduce myself, Colleen (Captain) and Frances (Leader) of the team:

"First a brief little introduction: I grew up a Midwest farm girl from Wisconsin but through a series of moments of self discovery I have since moved to California and live the city life in Palm Springs.  I live in a beautiful contemporary home where my husband and I have designed a small but very beautiful Japanese Garden.

Unfortunately, though, the contemporary look does not blend with my passion for vintage and antique Victorian froufrou.  So I have created for myself a virtual world with my shops.  I welcome you to my attic filled with all the treasures found and creations made especially for you..." ~Colleen Cornelius
"I create mixed media, collage, folk art, religious icons, jewelry with a twist, paintings & digital art. Frida Kahlo has long been my muse and some of my art is inspired by her colorful life and paintings. I also enjoy dressing up in costume for any occasion but especially for Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos celebrations and of course as Frida.

Hunting for treasures at flea markets, thrift stores and antique shops is also a favorite past time and I often incorporate these objects into my art..." ~Frances Perea


"Hello I'm Tara! I'm from Wichita, Kansas. Coming from a family of artists I like to get my hands into just about anything! I am fascinated by vintage photographs and postcards. Art , photography, & crafts are my past time and meditation. 

I'll be adding more and more as I go on. So come back and visit me. 

If you have any questions or comments just ask! :)" ~Tara Sue

"Hi! I grew up in Russia. Now I live in the beautiful city of Prague.
The desire to share with you my creativity inspired me to open of this shop.
I really like the unusual things that are made with the mood and as handmade!

We are a creative photographer Natasha Breen created for you in a limited number of these cards and notebooks. Welcome!" ~Zulfiya Zagidullina

"Just a soon to be middle aged gal who loves all things vintage and crafty." ~Lisa


My name is Olga, my friend Keith and I are the team behind FishOutStore.
We are vintage hunters :) There is something magical about "fishing" through flea market and collecting old charming goods. We've allways loved vintage things with history behind it. So, on the weekend's mornings we are going to the local flea market to hunt on hidden treasures. Most finds are from Soviet era - and here they are, in our FishOutStore.
Hope, you'll fish out your treasures here. Good luck!
And feel free to contact me if you have any questions" ~Keith and Olga

"Original art and handpicked soviet vintage: 
clothes - home decor - toys - accessories - vintage kids - dining - craft supplies - jewellery and collectibles 
Hello there,
I'm Anna and here I will list my handmade creations of different kind along with carefully picked vintage items.
Everything will come lovingly wrapped and is ready to be used, worn and enjoyed.

Custom orders welcome."~Anna
