Yes, even more postcards! I am†continuing from here and here, with the over one† hundred postcards that I received in the Anniversary round of the DIY Postcard Swap that I host every spring and fall, for the past ten years!

I am sharing the DIY Postcards that I got as a hostess here. Normally you only get ten postcards – the same amount as you yourself make and send out. But this is of course, by no one’s measures, a normal year. Hello 2020, right? It’s not even normal for me, this many postcards has never arrived in iHanna Postcard Land!

So, let’s take a look at all these lovely handmade, painted, collaged, sewn, doodled, and “made with love” cards, okay?
