Lots of Postcards - International
Swap Coordinator:LMeowkin (contact)
Swap categories: Miscellaneous  Art  Letters & Writing 
Number of people in swap:114
Last day to signup/drop:April 27, 2007
Date items must be sent by:May 12, 2007
Number of swap partners:5

A recent visit to Half Price Books yielded several cool books of postcards. And who can I send those postcards to? YOU!

Let's start sending!

Here are the details:

1) You will have five partners.

2) Send your partner a postcard, either handmade or store bought.

3) On the back of the postcard, share one of the following: Your favorite quote, a silly joke, your favorite part of spring, what inspired you to make the card (if handmade), or a little bit about where or why you bought the card (if store bought).

Newbies are welcome, if profile is completely filled out. People with no sends are not welcome to this swap.

THIS IS A LOW EXPECTATION SWAP. Please, ratings of five if you get your postcard, whether you like it or not. Your personal feeling about the way the postcard looks is not the point: the point is that you got your postcard.

And before you rate someone with a one, please follow up with an email. Since this is international, it may take some time for the postcard to reach you. And, postcards sometimes do get eaten by postal machines. Give your partner a chance to explain and send another if need be, before slapping a one down in their ratings kitty.

Now let's swap posties!


knitagirl 04/10/2007 #

question - can we send the postcards in envelopes, as the British postal system seems to like eating postcards...

LMeowkin 04/10/2007 #

Sure, you can send your posty in an envy if you feel more comfortable doing that. You must still write something on the back, though!

knitagirl 04/10/2007 #

Okiedokies, of course I will write somthing. Fab, I shall now go forth and join the swap :o)

inamerica8 04/13/2007 #

Would someone be able to suggest some places online where I could buy postcards? I can only find city postcards around here.

knitagirl 04/14/2007 #

Amazon is a good place - they sell books of postcards. Well they do over here anyways - had a look on the American site and it looks they do too. I want these: http://www.amazon.com/I-Feel-Sin-Coming-Postcards/dp/0811836428/ref=sr120/104-7785425-3245560?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1176546759&sr=1-20 !

inamerica8 04/14/2007 #

Thank you Knitagirl. I will check it out.

user7052 04/14/2007 #

You might try alibris.com too to find books of postcards. They're my favorite "used books" site, and when I searched postcard books there, they have some awesome choices for as low as $2.40!

shirabunny 04/19/2007 #

are movie postcards okay? :)

LMeowkin 04/19/2007 #

Movie postcards are fine, as long as there is room on the back to complete item #3!

user7250 04/21/2007 #

Are postcards of my state okay? I've found some really good ones...

electrogeek77 04/22/2007 #

Ooooh, do I have some crazy postcards itching to be sent!

Sallenlouise 04/24/2007 #

YAY! This is going to be fun! I can't wait to find out who my partners are!

Heather71 04/26/2007 #

You've twisted my arm. I'm away on Monday to get some for another swap, 5 more won't break the bank.

I have just been afraid of getting a 1 from a snappy swapper who doesn't receive within a few days and they can take a couple of weeks, if not longer from the UK.

Sallenlouise 04/27/2007 #

I have my postcards ready. They are just waiting on addys!

melurDraja 04/27/2007 #

my postcards are ready too~~~

monstermansmum05 04/28/2007 #

Samthatiam - Guber is beautiful. I am always taking pictures of my cats and I know it's not easy. His expression reminds me of one my cats too.

Sorry to my partners about mine being sent out late. They will be going out in tomorrows mail. I will send an email to everyone. But my grandmother passed away last Tuesday. I had to go to Louisiana Monday and didn't return home until Friday afternoon. For some reason, I thought the deadling to send was the 15th or I would have sent them out before I left.

VM 05/20/2007 #

Thanks also to whimzee, nylelyn, Gayle Schoen and LittleMP for their postcards!

user7639 05/20/2007 #

I love postcard swaps. Love getting and sending postcards. But how do you get hearts when all you're suppose to do is send a postcard with a quote on it? I looked at all my partners' profiles and then looked up quotes that matched their interest and I get no hearts. :( How can I improve? I know I'm still a newbie but I want to learn. Thanks :) <3

Saor 05/21/2007 #

I got all my cards and left ratings:) Thanks everyone.

brandigirl72 05/21/2007 #

whimzee, it is hard to get stars on postcard swaps unless maybe you send out 2 postcards to each partner?. If you sent two postcards to all five of you partners that would be 5 stars.

user7683 05/21/2007 #

Liz and Jill, thanks for the extra follow-up with the misdirected post card. Really appreciate the beautiful picture:)

missfunk 05/21/2007 #

Received 4 out of 5 postcards so far and loved them all =)

Hope all my partners received theirs - if not please let me know.

Sallenlouise 05/22/2007 #

Morgan Ann 88888888, your postcard came in today! Thank you so much. I didn't know about the museum. I am going to looking into it.

Woo Hooo! I have now received all of my postcards. I have left ratings for all :)

SCOWLETTE, ELIZZABETH, SHOPINC ( I know you are overseas), Have you received your postcards yet? Keep me updated.If I need to send again I will :)
