Last year there were 160 swappers, this year we are a whopping 280 swappers!
280 people x 10 postcards equals 2800 postcards! I hope you did join my fantastically awesome DIY Postcard Swap 2011!? The registration is now closed, though I might do another one in 2012. Please subscribe to my blog or join the newsletter to be sure to get firsthand news on the next event.
For those of you who have signed up, I’m so glad to have you! I could not send out confirmations to everyone this year, that would’ve taken way too much time away from my life. Plus I’m also organizing a Swedish ATC swap with embroidered ATC’s this month (via FB), and the amount of emails is overwhelming right now.
Inbox zero was a dream I used to have… Don’t worry about where you’ll be sending your postcards just yet, I’ve started to send out emails but it will take me a few days before I finish. Just be sure to make your postcards on time! If you don’t hear from me before the end of March (31st), please contact me then! The last day to send postcards is April 8th!
Document the creative process
As I’ve written about before I think it’s great if you also take the time to share the process of how you make your cards, what techniques and materials you use and things like that. The process of making ten handmade postcards is great blog fodder to write about and document in different ways. Once you send your cards on their way you will have the sweet memory of making them, especially if you take the time to take a yummy photo of the finished pile and share those in the Postcard flickr pool that was created last year but we’re recycling this year!
Add photos and your scanned cards in the Diy Postcard Swap Pool at flickr (free photo sharing site).
Share your blog post!
If you blog about your own postcards feel free to share the direct link to that post below. Write your name, nickname or handle (not your blog’s name please! I just dislike that a lot!) and then the url! Make sure you visit/comment on at least two other blogs when you add yours, we all want visitors to our blogs, right?
If you write several posts about your postcarding (or share postcards that your receive) you can share those here too, just add a number for your second post (2) and so on. Thanks!
