Finishing the Postcard – what’s on the back?
I love the backsides of postcards almost as much as the art on the front! iHanna Dear Mail Art Artists & DIY Postcard Fans, do you put in as much love and attention to the backside of the postcards you send as you do the front? I am guessing no, you might not. Painting and […]

Happy Mail from La Wendeltreppe
