Description:

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!

IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND:

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") and your screenname at the top of the left hand side. PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE and send it off to your partner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU PARTICIPATED IN THE PREVIOUS ROUND(S):

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!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hang on to the postcard(s) that you receive in each round. 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 completed) 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 and will ban anyone that I feel like. 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 unless instructed otherwise.

ALSO: Do not destroy, bend, write on the front of, or ANYTHING else that destroys the integrity of the postcard. Treat the postcard how you would want yours treated. That's just etiquette, folks!

Additionally: If you stop swapping for more than three rounds, your name will be placed on the "Send Back To" list and your card will be sent back to you if it's still in rotation. This is only fair...why should a few of us do all the work and you just get to sit back and wait?!

And too: If you ever receive more than 3 postcards in any round, please contact me, so I can get a few back from you. Just trying to keep postage down for everyone!

jburb 03/29/2014 #

Yay! I'm happy to see my card is still traveling. This is such an awesome swap!

twobluecrows 03/29/2014 #

I'm moving and worry about my card that's still out there. My current address will be good until at least June 1, but after that, if someone has it, please PM me for the new address (or whoever has it now, please PM me and change the address on the card.

twobluecrows 03/29/2014 #

I'll be changing my address here in SB as soon as all my current swaps are in, to minimize the confusion.

Has anyone seen mine started in Round 12? Jane Hills from Witham in the UK. Can't remember what the picky was - it will be a nice surprise if/when it comes home.

KarlaKC 04/ 1/2014 #

@twobluecrows , what is your name? I'll be on the lookout if I should receive it.

twobluecrows 04/ 1/2014 #

Cyn Richardson--I'm pretty sure I put "twobluecrows" on the card, too.

inthewild 04/ 2/2014 #

Betty Maxwell I'll be sending your card along in this round that you started in R15. Lots of room for traveling still.

inthewild 04/ 2/2014 #

Any one seen my cards?

sunspot 04/ 3/2014 #

@bluegirl I'm passing on your card this round and I just wanted to tell you (if you're reading) that this card IS SO CUUUUTE. :D

AnnieMaxine 04/ 4/2014 #

I will be posting @pne 's postcard from R19 and @thisismeAXiD 's postcard from R14 tomorrow!

London13 04/ 6/2014 #

I will be sending sapphiregypsy's on.

Deeno1105 04/ 7/2014 #

OK........I messed up on R23 & this one. My partner resent her card from R23. I put it in an envelope and was about to send it for this round but..........realized.I haven't rec'd this round's card yet. So, when it says "sent" by my name for this round, I really haven't.

As soon as I get the card for this round I'll be sending from 23 & 24.

I feel so dumb right now.

spinjenny 04/ 8/2014 #

@Deeno1105 ~ you can undo marking Sent by clicking next to where it says Sent just below the swap title at the top of this page.

Also, most of us won't be sending out the cards we receive in this round (R24) until R25, otherwise no-one would be sending anything this round as we'd all be waiting for someone else to send first. There is no reason you can't send the card from R23 without waiting to receive a card from this one and risking sending late, particularly if your sending partner this round is outside the US..

Deeno1105 04/ 8/2014 #

Thanks @spinjenny

AnnieMaxine 04/ 9/2014 #

Yes, thanks @spinjenny Lots of times, if your card is coming from a different country, it may not reach you in time. If this is the case, put another one of your own into rotation and send the one you get for this round in the next one. It's important to always send on time!

EmilyT 04/ 9/2014 #

I am looking for PC owner Rachel D, if you are her or know her profile ID, please contact me. I sent your pc in r22.

EmilyT 04/ 9/2014 #

Strange coincidence, the card in question already came back to me 2 rounds later, issue is now a non issue.

rhynah 04/10/2014 #

Oh my! I sent the card on Monday but forgot to click sent! I promise the PC is on its way already! :)

latentsmile 04/11/2014 #

Karla Cardell's card is en route to @DiscoRia
Contacted her today to let her know why it was being sent late. I swear…some days my head really would go missing if it weren't attached.

Deeno1105 04/14/2014 #

I'd like to thank @ widel0123 (S. Kimball) for sending my PC home. It started on R11. Thank all who signed it and kept it traveling. It had a fun trip: Florida, California, Australia, S. California, Connecticut, Michigan, Illinois, Germany & lastly, N. Carolina!

That makes 2 that have returned home since starting this awesome swap. I'll start a new one next round.

alicemayspring 04/20/2014 #

Has anyone seen my card from way back I live on Wales UK

NatashaMay 03/23/2015 #

I'm sorry to see this swap end. Thanks @AnnieMaxine for keeping it going for so long. Hope I get to see my postcards return to me. I have lost track of them a while ago. Nataša May, Slovenia
