My batch of Sewn together Postcards

iHanna's Postcards 2011

I have been so busy visiting everyone’s blog posts about the postcarding joy that I forgot about my own! So far I’ve only shared little hints of my postcard process on the blog, but today I took the time to edit and upload all the scanned postcards I made for the DIY Postcard Swap!

I was going to make 10 postcards according to my own postcard swap rules – but then I couldn’t stop myself… I ended up with 22 postcards:

And of course I do remember the postcarding joy! Creating, sharing and making colourful cards with positive messages – that is just happiness to me!

Be creative my friends, act creative and then stay creative! – that’s my message here.

Since yesterday was pictures of black and white doodles (and I was to tired to write anything), today is a colour feast! Here are bigger views of my postcards;

Thank YOU!

I have received all of my ten postcards (and a few extras, thanks to some naughty girls!) and they are all hanging on my Inspiration board right now. Love all of them so much! They are all so pretty and inspirational in different ways. I know my own postcards have reached their destinations too, because I have seen them on various blogs lately! Later I am thinking of maybe creating some kind of album or book with the postcards I got… we’ll see.

Please visit the still growing list
of links to swappers who on their own blog share some heartfelt postcarding joy and if you haven’t already, join my newsletter, where I will share the next swap round (probably in the beginning of next year)… Though there will be awesomely fun stuff coming up on the newsletter really soon I hope… ;-)

Thanks to everyone who participated, you all rock!

    Hanna Hanna Hanna!!


    I got your card and it is the most luscious, cheery, artful, fun card, ever and I want a tattoo of it.

    (I won’t say where.)

    Thanks for this swap. I’ve made some sweet bloggy friends and I have gotten my cards, too, and look forward to doing a special post about all of them. I thought I signed up for your newsletter! I’m going to go do that now, and I want to hear the MINUTE you have a swap going on!

    Thanks, again, Hanna! Your postcard swap got me out of a serious creative rut. I had so much fun playing and creating and I haven’t stopped! :)

    I’ve been posting my process on my blog and hope to get all my cards uploaded to the flickr group this weekend.

    LOVE your postcards. Beautiful collage-y goodness!

    Looking forward to the next swap…

    Hi Hanna,
    I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your postcard swap this year. Coming home from work to see what the postman has delivered has been so exciting and the artwork that everyone has produced is so inspiring! So a big BIG thank you Hanna for organising it!

    These are so pretty! and you are so lucky to have received all of your cards — I have 4 so far :)

  22. Karen says:

    dang, you are a bust bee. I love handmade postcards, yours are wicked!

  23. MissKoolAid says:

    Your postcards are so bright and happy! I feel lucky to have one of them in my collection now.
    I’m still waiting on postcards but the ones I received so far are all gorgeous!

    PS I don’t if it would be possible for you but is there any way you could remind the swappers to let their swappers that the postcards arrived? My mom and I only received 4-5 notices.

  24. francine says:

    I love your blog

  25. Jana says:

    cAN i BUY ONE?

  26. alexandria says:

    Wow, those postcards are gorgeous!

  27. TJ says:

    Your postcards are so beautiful and your skills at hostessing such a huge event are amazing!
    I’m sad to admit that I didn’t get through all the swappers either. I do hope to try and connect with more in the next weeks, but it was a HUGE amount of blogs to visit. After many hours I let go and realized I did my best in the time I had. I’m looking forward to visiting my post office box this week though because I’m thinking the last few will be there which of course will lead to more connecting!!
    It’s been terrific — thank you Hanna!! Happy Easter, xxx tj

  28. Lay Hoon says:

    The scan of 22 postcards can be a very nice, sweet & brilliant wall paper.
    I’m so much fun to get myself in this swap.
