Lucky Number 13!

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 (including the country!) 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!

Additional Note: I'd love to post some "success stories" for this swap. If you've had yours returned to you, message me and I'd love to post in the comments about it. Maybe that will encourage others to continue to participate!

I received two in the previous round, so I have Gail Knottererus's and Shannon Collar's postcards. Gail's has five signers so far and is about a third of the way full, and Shannon's has eleven signers so far and is about two-thirds full.

wadesay 08/20/2013 #

Round #12 reached me today. I have two cards: SARALA KRON, which is about half filled up, and AMANDA MILES, which is not quite half filled. They will go out in round #13. I am really enjoying this swap! I get to see lovely cards AND pass them on, knowing they will eventually go home.

Does anybody have my PC? The name is Janaina Rogério.

pne 08/22/2013 #

Yay, my card turned up! I thought it had got lost. (It was an oversize one since I got too enthusiastic about the suggestion in early rounds to make it a big one to make plenty of room for names.)

inkedwithelegance 08/22/2013 #

Jan218 08/25/2013 #

I have @preslabr 's card ready to send on it's way!

Jan218 08/25/2013 #

Sorry - that is @preslarb 's card!

pne 08/25/2013 #

@badandknowsit2 I suggest you send the card you have now to @AnnieMaxine for her to put back into circulation rather than joining this swap. I believe that's her recommendation for people who would like to step back from sending-and-receiving for whatever reason. Yours should still get back to you when it's full, or she may recommend that your card go back to you early if you have to drop out of regularly sending.

AnnieMaxine 08/25/2013 #

I already replied to her via PM. Thanks, @pne

Happycrazylion 08/26/2013 #

Hurray!! Mine showed up!! Thanks for posting you have it @preslarb

Ok, this is my first round! I can't believe I missed all the the earlier ones! Ahh. Wonder who'll be my first signer :)

sunshinesuperman 08/26/2013 #

Still waiting for my return postcard from early round. Mona from Kansas. I received 2 cards last time so they are ready to travel again!

thisismeAXiD 08/27/2013 #

AHH!!! Mine's already in the mail. I was just way too excited for this, lol :)

AnnieMaxine 08/27/2013 #

Sent off @BeckyG56 's postcard today!

Vickyen 08/28/2013 #

KarlaKC 08/28/2013 #

joyhouse5 08/29/2013 #

I still have not received my postcard from the last round, so I will give it til Tuesday and mail off one of my own if I dont get it by then.

EmilyT 08/30/2013 #

The one I received will be heading back to it's owner tomorrow. I don't want to say who so that it will be a surprise for them!

BluePoppy 08/31/2013 #

Hang in there, Joyhouse5! Fingers crossed the PC will make it nice and smooth all the way from Brazil to you!

I just turned home today to find Fruitbat5150 card, this card is full so I will return it home to Kimberly. I will start a new card this round!

daisydayz 09/ 1/2013 #

Sorry i missed this one, I still want to participate in the next swap but have been away until today so thought it safer not to join this round. Please keep my card in!! And see you all again next round!

daisydayz 09/ 1/2013 #

Just wondering if my first card is still out there actually? It was R6 I joined I think, so shoudl be getting pretty full! Chantele Cross-Jones but I need to alter the address before anyone sends it back as i have now moved. Thanks guys!!

twobluecrows 09/ 1/2013 #

I didn't join this round due to being out of town, but I have Jennifer Mendoza's first card from the UAE, and I'll be sending it out next round!

Any idea where my card is this time around?

pne 09/ 2/2013 #

I didn't get R12 by today so I made a new card of my own as well and sent it off :)

misscorina 09/ 2/2013 #

I didn't get my R12 either :-(

inthewild 09/ 3/2013 #

I never received R12, but mailed a new card off. I'm still waiting (hoping?) for my card from R2 and would love to know if it's still in circulation.

HelloCindi 09/ 3/2013 #

I never received my R12 postcard either, but luckily I received my swap from this round last week, so I'll be passing on @cyph0r s postcard along for R13.
