Wouldn't it be great to send a postcard and see where it had been all around the world? Then get it returned back to you after its adventures were over? Let's do it!


Choose a card. A card that you think people would enjoy seeing (however, PLEASE DO NOT USE EXTRA LARGE POSTCARDS THAT WILL REQUIRE EXTRA POSTAGE!). Put your name and address on the right hand side of the card. Put the title of the swap ("Adventures of the Traveling Postcard") at the top of the left hand side. PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE and send it off to your partner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just write your name, username, city, state/country, on the left hand side of the postcard you received in the previous round. Put it in an envelope and send it to your partner! (DO NOT WRITE YOUR ENTIRE ADDRESS ON THE POSTCARD - THIS TAKES UP TOO MUCH SPACE!)


We will have another round as soon as everyone has clicked "Sent" in the previous round. (Sign up when you receive yours from the previous round, start another one in rotation, or contact me, as I may have a postcard that needs to be put back into rotation as well!) When the left side of the postcard is filled up with the names and cities of those that have received the postcard, the last person will stamp your actual postcard and send it back to you.

Only join if you are awesome and a non-flaker. Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps - although if you have already been in the swap, you will be allowed in even if you don't have 50) and I will ban if I feel that you may be a questionable swapper. I want to do my best to ensure that everyone receives their postcard back! So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul, K? I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile. Thanks and happy swapping!

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled!

I received 2 postcards last round. Brooke Prislupsky of Port Crane NY< it is oversized so it can probably fit 3 more names. She started in round 6.

Plus I have SPINJENNY aka Jenny Kosarew of the UK and Only one more player can fit on this card. I have signed up so those are the 2 I am sending out. She started in round 3.

AnnieMaxine 06/14/2013 #

If anyone has the following people's postcards, please send them back to them, as they are either suspended, or no longer participating. If they aren't participating, I don't think that their postcards should be circulating anymore! If you do send them back, you can put another one of your own into rotation:

@Angee (Angie Buchsbaum) @BlackSheepSolo (Tara Roach) @cabaute (Cynthia Baute) @CuriousaKat (Katherine Biasbas) @dorcii (Dora Punk) @EvetteOgden (Evette Ogden) @Hollie (Hollie George) @hellblazer (Sophie Andersson) @Jeanb217 (Jeannie Blender) @JimLD (Jim Davis) @LorenMarie77 (Loren Sanders) @LunaEtLesEtoiles (Sandrine Lorent) @oneholypassion44 (Amanda Miles) @sammalmquist (Samantha Malmquist) @wikkedlilgrrl (Twanette Price) @BagyJen (Jennifer Guse) @beinguided (Valerie Donley) @Carolien25 (Carolien Ijpellar) @jagazin (Jessica Gazin) @lilacandyellow (Glenda Bardgett) @provadia (Rossi Kostova) @Shannoncollar (Shannon Collar) @SusiLetter (Susanne Aulig) @thisisryanross (Laura Hanson) @Tobis (Tobias Widsell Ehnfors) @User5311 (Vicki Maddox)

ReaderChris 06/19/2013 #

I'm on vacation so I won't be sending this round, but will next month!

rsilvers 06/20/2013 #

@violetkim From the FAQ: "Type 2 - Flat Mail - Mail swaps that only require one or two postage stamps, like postcards, letters, and other postal mail swaps with little, to no, craft component."

So in this case, you will send and receive just the traveling postcard in the envelope (plus any optional extras you/your partner choose to send).

ladydy5 06/20/2013 #

I have the card that belongs to Monick K in The Netherlands that I will be sending to next swapper.

Since I haven't heard anything about my card since I started, I'm going to start another and hope I have better luck.

momoeight 06/26/2013 #

I have sent out a couple of cards, R1 and another at R3 or 4, and have not seen them listed for awhile!!

I just got two cards to send on ~ one from Danusha in Australia and another card that is not address to anyone!! It looks like it started in R6 and it is a card that shows the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia. I someone can identify it, I could address it. Or maybe @penandink could tell me who sent it to her??

As a FYI to the swap host and anyone else who'd want to know, I forwarded Samantha Malmquist's pc to Emily Rogers and just clicked "Sent" today.

Cranberry 07/ 9/2013 #

Has round 11 been posted yet?

twobluecrows 07/10/2013 #

The send by date is June 29, but I just received my R9 card from @Batmamma in Sweden which was postmarked June 24, so I'm sending out a little late, in R10, a larger sized card belonging to Jan Sudmeier in Wisconsin. Not to happy to have to pay the extra postage for the 1/2" too long postcard, but what can I do?

twobluecrows 07/10/2013 #

Aacckk! Brain-storm, and not in the thinking well sort of way--I now have The card sent to me by @Batmamma and it's to go out in R11! Thanks to AnnieMaxine for help working that one out! lol

AnnieMaxine 07/10/2013 #

Round 11 has been listed today. Just got home from holiday! I will send a mass email tomorrow.
