Have you heard of the Sue Grafton Mystery Book series, where she starts each of her books with a letter of the alphabet? She's up to the letter T now, but it's taken her nearly 15 or so years to get to T.

I thought it might be fun to do a postcard swap based on each letter of the alphabet.

One swap every 2 weeks will cover the whole alphabet in 1 year. Long range, but the whole set should be pretty impressive when completed.

I am starting with just the first few letters of the alphabet to see how this goes. If all goes well, then I will continue with the rest of the alphabet.

Of course, you don't have to shoot for the entire alphabet, maybe you have a favorite letter or two you like? :)

Send ONE postcard to FIVE partners with the theme/subject/picture on the postcard beginning with the letter of this swap. Write the subject on the back of the postcard and a few words about why you picked this particular postcard.

Postcards can be store bought or handmade. Let your creative side go wild.

This swap is for swappers with a rating of 4.7 or higher, at least 3 rated swaps (mailed swaps), no more than one no send in the last 3 months and no swaps outstanding more than 7 days at the close of the signup period.

Questions, comments, please let me know. To get a quicker response, please use the contact link next to my user name above.

EDITED TO ADD NOTE: This is turning out to be quite popular. Don't stress out over missing any of the letters. Life does happen and since this is such a long range swap, anyone is bound to be on vacation or have something else happen along the way that messes up their swap calendar. I thought about this, and as the need arises during the course of this series, I will set up a few "Make-Up" swaps for those that missed a letter or two so you can all complete your sets. If you miss a letter, just pm me and I'll add you to my list and when we get a few people, I'll set it up and let you know about it. I'm willing to work with you all to complete your sets, communication is the key!

Posted a scan of my card in the gallery. All 5 are on the same idea, but the scan is not very good. I have a lousy scanner.

Apparently one of my cards got lost in the mail, so I'm sending out a replacement.
