I have become a terribly lazy letter writer these days, but cards and postcards are so easy to send and such cheerful things to receive. There's nothing quite like a nice bit of proper post, is there? And surprise post = even better!
Here are the postcards I sent for the swap...
... featuring The Jolly Postman ("Everybody loves a letter"), William Holman Hunt's Strayed Sheep, a mixtape from The Emma Press, a quilt by Alicia Merrett and a room at the National Gallery.
I've received two postcards so far. One from Southampton:
And one with a felt bunny stitched on it! (So cute!)
It's also been fun seeing my postcards pop up on Twitter and Instagram as people share the cards they're sending and receiving.
I got some #summerpostcardclub mail today! thanks @bugsandfishes and @feltfolk :) pic.twitter.com/yBNcMFMmep— Marceline Smith (@marceline) July 21, 2015
You can see the postcards being swapped by checking out #summerpostcardclub on Twitter and on Instagram.
Many thanks to Marceline for organising the swap! Signups for Summer Postcard Club are now closed for 2015, but maybe you could arrange a swap with your friends?
