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!


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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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!

I don't know how I did it, but I missed the last round completely. I think I've been in this swap since round 9 or something. BRAIN FREEZE I guess. I have a card belonging to @spinweaver which started R-37. Sorry for the hold up.

Sorry, I don't join this one. Leaving tomorrow for vacation and not back in time. But I will be there in round 41

EmilyT 03/ 3/2015 #

I received the card belonging to @Caddi and I believe I need to send it home now after adding my info! ....I feel silly but I may need to put another PC for me in the mix, even though I just did so, unless I receive from R38 that still hasn't been received...

HelloCindi 03/ 3/2015 #

I will be passing on Melanie Rascher's card!

3goldkeys 03/ 3/2015 #

Passing again. I'm still waiting on R38 pc. Didn't join R39 because I had no pc to pass on. I'm still waiting on one of my pcs that I think should have made its rounds by now.
