i would like to create a "colorful" postcard swap.

every month we will send 1 postcard to 3 different people and every month there will be a different color!

let's start with green (there can be other colors too. but the main color has to be green).

you can buy the postcards or make them yourself. be creative and use stamps, cut paper, fabric, collage, stickers, anything!!

this is an international swap.

~ooohhhhh, lime green is my favorite color of the moment~

~lime green and pink~


drewzel 12/19/2006 #

Yeah Chai~tea, I'm loving lime green at the moment too!
Lime green and aqua! yay~

chaitea 12/20/2006 #


are theses postcards to be blank on the back so that the partner can send them out to their friends?

drewzel.....I've never thought of lime and aqua...together you mean?

@ chai~tea: the cards are from you to your partners. you could write a greeting, a poem, you could draw something, use stickers..... but don't leave them blank. enjoy the swap :o)

hi. do i send 3 postcards to 3 different people as in 9 postcards total? or one postcard each to 3 people?


Zmrzlina 01/ 2/2007 #

Yikes, now that I read the details again, I'm not sure. I thought it was 1 postcard to 3 people, and that's what I prepared, but now I am not sure....

drewzel 01/ 4/2007 #

Yeah that does sound a bit unclear... I read it as 1 postcard each to 3 people? Mela?

chai~tea, yep lime and aqua together :)

mela 01/ 4/2007 #

sorry about the confusion!!! it should read "1 postcard to 3 different people" :o)

girlzoot 01/ 5/2007 #

Oops, I totally didn't read this until too late. Anyone that was a partner of mine expect three cards.

mela 01/ 5/2007 #

@girlzoot and anyone who send out three cards to each partner: i am soooooo sorry for getting it wrong :o( it is the first swap i created and english is not my mothertongue ;o) i hope you will forgive me? but your partners are going to be very happy!!! the swap for next month is already up, the color is going to be red and i edited the text!!! if something is not clear please let me know...

Zmrzlina 01/ 6/2007 #

No worries on the confusion mela! It isn't always easy to word these things, even when English is your first language :-) I sent one card to three people, but if I get more than one from my partners, I will pay it forward somehow :-)

Thank you for organizing mela. And I look forward to the next color!

No worries, it was still fun.

thanks so much !!!!!

I am going to hang them on my wall in my craft room!!!!

Mine have been sent today, so I hope they make it safe and sound!!!

thanks again!!!

Two green cards today... a very cool MOMA card featuring a bottled beverage from La Vita Bella and a beribboned van Gogh from Sonicgirl in Italy (my favorite color is purple, too). Thank you both very much. Really brightens this wet gloomy day.

Lucky me has received three cards from girlzoot!

Thanks, Melinda :) they're great!

~I got another green postie today from Julie!

Thanks so such, very funky!!!

For some reason it does not say Rate the swappers at the top of my page.....

any one else having this problem or is it just me????

Zmrzlina 01/20/2007 #

Rate link won't show up until after about 6pm EST (-5 GMT)

chaitea 01/20/2007 #

~thanks Zmrzlina~

do you know why that is???

Zmrzlina 01/20/2007 #

I think the administrator of the site just picked a time that would signify the end of the day and that's when the partners become available and when the link for rating goes live. Had to pick one time, and I suppose end of the business day made sense, though I think the administrator lives on the west coast so maybe it just a random time he chose.

chaitea 01/21/2007 #

~I have just checked the other swaps I have done, and the links are at the top to rate.....

but not for this one....

this seems so strange to me............

Zmrzlina 01/21/2007 #

15 (deadline for mailing) + 7 (week allowance for receiving)= 22. The link will be live on 22 Jan after 6pm or so.

More details if you click the link in the top left menu labeled "rating info", http://www.swap-bot.com/rating_info.php

~thanks again....

I will keep my eyes open for this!

chaitea 02/ 3/2007 #

~I wonder what is taking my green posties soooo long to make it to their destination........

getting impatient here.......!

chaitea 02/ 9/2007 #

~I guess my other posties have still not shown up, so I will email my partners, and resend them I guess...

It has been almost a month since I sent them.... this is a drag!

User 3513 never rated me for this swap, even though I know she received the cards.
