Cheer me up & share your DIY Postcards

On my desk right now

November in Sweden this year has been horrible gray. Where I live there has been gray skies for weeks on end. It feels like the fog never lifts, and it gets dark around three o’clock. The first few weeks we had a record low of 2 hours of sunshine! Yeah, it’s been bad, and I feel it in my entire body. Not even the prospect of making something cheers me up and the blog posts I have written have been few and far apart… I just want to go to sleep. But this week I finally spread out the vintage postcards I had started… and finished them. Again, dear deadline, thanks for being there for me!

I will share more of the process in my next post, but for now, I thought maybe you’d want to share your do it yourself postcard process with us?

Link up guidelines:

  1. Only add links to blog posts or flickr images related to the DIY Postcard Swap Winter 2014 here, please.
  2. Link to the specific post, not to your main blog. You can add in several posts if you’ve blogged about your process more than once.
  3. Please grab the {diy postcard swap} button and link back to me somewhere on your blog, and also to this linkl-post.
  4. Please check out some links before you leave and give others some comment love.
  5. I would love for you to become a subscriber to this blog and/or gave the facebook page a thumbs up-visit


What to share? We’d love to know how you made your postcards! What is your creative process like? Are handmade postcards new to you, or maybe you swap all the time? Please do tell, on your blog or in the comment section here!

I’m sending out addresses right now. If you have questions check the FAQ first, then leave a question below or contact me and I’ll try to help you in anyway I can. Also, please bookmark this post and come back to it later in December so that you can visit others to become even more inspired and to leave encouraging comments. Maybe I’m not the only one who needs a bit of extra love right now?

Have a great weekend & a merry December!

    Loved making my postcards. Hope you enjoy looking at them. Happy end of November :)

  2. Loved making the cards this year. And because mine are super color-saturated, I thought I’d leave a link here. (It will post in 45 minutes, or at midnight Arizona time)

    Those long dreary days would absolutely drown me in gray. I wish you could come for a visit–this is the time of year to enjoy our mild winters!

    hi hanna, if we don’t have a blog, twitter, instagram, flicker, can we just add pictures here?

      Hi Jenny,
      no you can not add images into this link up, but Flickr.com is free to join, and then you just upload your photos to that site, name them and share the link here. It’s kind of nice to share something you make online – and I also have a special group for this swap that you can join there. Loads of inspiration and images.

      I hope that helps, but sharing is optional as mentioned in the mail. :-)

    Hanna,
    This is my Flickr website where I have included some photos of my postcards from this winter swap, but I couldn’t find the place to upload them to your Flickr DIY postcard swap like I have in the past. Do you still have that?

    I don’t know how to do this. I do have a Flickr account but I don’t remember what to do so I’ll just let you know that my cards have been sent out today. A little late but I have been very sick so I’m happy. As always heaps fun. Thanks till next time Pam

    Here is the second set of postcards I have made. They are somewhat different from the first set, which was collage. These are printed and then painted.

    Some people received their cards intact. Just the one postcard came with only the backside…but one person received a postcard held together with a rubber band! (by some kind and gentle postal worker I assume!), and I have not heard from the rest, so I am just assuming the worst, and sending them another card…in an envelope!

    Thanks for hosting this swap! So far I have received 8 cards and am looking forward to receiving the other 2.

    Middle of January and I’m still waiting for 4 cards from your winter swap. I know one of mine just made it to Australia a couple weeks ago. Do I just assume people didn’t send or that the mail demon ate them? I’m very pleased with what I have received so far. Thanks for the swap.

    • iHanna says:

      Hi Lois, glad you have enjoyed being in this swap and the cards you received. Sorry that you haven’t gotten all your postcards yet. How to deal with that is stated in the FAQ page, ie. contact me with names and country of the ones you did get and I’ll check what happened with the others. But of course, I can not guarantee 10 postcards no matter how much I wish I could.

      Happy January wishes!
