This swap is for everyone who is interested in the heathen tradition. Ostara is an ancient traditional fest (Spring Equinox) marking the mid-point between Yule (Winter Solstice) and Litha (Summer Solstice) celebrated in March. This is the day when day and night are of the same length.

Google can help you to find Ostara symbols and boost your inspiration! Though I'd love to mention some here to help you:
rabbit, lamb, butterfly
eggs (also decorated)
green, white, pink, yellow
daffodil, iris, crocus, tulip
amethyst, quartz, jasper

This is not a religious swap, everyone who is interested is welcome.

Unrated users with a well-filled profile are welcome! Please, no unexplained 1s & 3s.

Some technical details:
- you have one partner for which you create one handmade postcard;
- the postcard can be made in any technic and with any pattern you like, though natural materials are highly appreciated ;)
- the postcard should be not smaller than 10 x 15 cm (can be larger);
- please, send your postcard naked!!! No envelopes!

Please, rate your partner a 5, if you get from him/her an Imbolc postcard, stars & hearts are up to you ;)

Questions are welcome in the comment section!

And don't forget that the main idea is to have fun creating and getting the swap ;)

Do you have examples / images of postcards with natural materials? I don't know which ones to use that would still be flat and "sturdy" enough to send as a naked postcard.

Or do you mean pressed leaves?

@Fruity sorry, missed your comments! Of course, you can use pressed leaves, or flowers! Or you may just create a collage or draw or stamp the postcard..
