Do you want to join the best handmade Postcard Swap on the web? Here’s your invitation to join the DIY Postcard Swap that I host twice each year, where hundreds of postcards get created, shared and sent via the postal system each time!
I’m super proud to be the facilitator of this swap, and I want to invite you to try it out. You will create ten handmade postcards (painted, quilted, embroidered or doodled – artist’s choice), and then in November you’ll receive ten handmade postcards sent directly from the creators to your home.
Doesn’t it sound just… juicy? I hope you will think so and consider signing up. The joy of finding a handmade, personalized postcard in the mail box is hard to beat. There are lots of opportunities to share your work online as well and you’ll find inspiration on my blog. I plan to encourage you here through my blog as you are creating your postcards.
Join the DIY Postcard Swap today!
The sign-up period finally opens up today and will be open until November 8th, and after that you’ll receive your 10 addresses via e-mail from me. I usually host this swap in the fall, but since we’re sending the cards in November when it’s really cold here in Sweden, I’m calling it the Fall-Winter Swap this time. :-)
I hope this will give you plenty of time to finish your postcards. There’s a small participation fee, but at the cost of a great coffee this swap will generate a lot more happiness over several days of creating, sharing and connecting with others.
Here are the dates you should note in your calendar:
|Sing up before||November 8, 2016|
|Your Postcards Should be ready to send on||November 11, 2016|
Please read the swap information with dates, inspiration and rules if you’re new to the swap.
Also feel free to join the iHanna Newsletter – sign up if you want to swap handmade postcards next year too. I rarely send out my newsletter, but you don’t want to miss it. In it you will be informed of all things new and cool around here.
