Did you know that April 22nd is Earth Day?? Let's celebrate by UPCYCLING, i.e. using and swapping with what we have instead of buying new!

For this swap, use the craft supplies and paper products that you already have on hand to create a postcard for each of your two partners. Do not buy anything new!! Postcards must be at least 4 x 6 inches in size, and must be sent stamped and "naked" (not in an envelope). (Here are the USPS postcard requirements Anything that falls outside their measurements will need a full first class letter stamp, or more if it is very large!)

These postcards should technically be handmade, but use your creativity in any way you can imagine! You can embellish store-bought cards, use recycled cardboard, paint, sticker, draw, glue... anything! The theme is Earth Day, but feel free to interpret it as loosely as you'd like.

All new swappers are welcome to join this international swap! And all experienced swappers with a 4.9 rating, or higher, are welcome. But I reserve the right to remove questionable users! Let's make this a huge swap celebrating our environment and the fun of upcycling!

p.s. I DO angel my swaps. Two weeks after the send deadline, if you have NOT received and you HAVE rated your partner honestly with a 1, you can contact me and I will send out an angel postcard.
