I've decided to start this project called A Postcard a Day, I hope you can join me. I also hope I get enough postcards to be able to keep this up everyday, will you help me? You can send your postcard to:
P O Box 81
Geebung QLD 4034
I would be delighted to swap a postcard with you in return. I am hoping to collect a postcard from every corner of the world. It would make my day/month/year. So if you are going to send me a card please write WOYWW on it so I can show yours off on Wednesdays.
Here is the Meme about A Postcard A Day, if like me you enjoy postcards then you will love travelling vicariously around the world with me. HERE is Day 1 and HERE is Day 2 and HERE is Day 3 so far.
Postcrossing Penpal GinaR from Perth sent me this wonderful idea of a Pocket Page Letter. It utilises the 9 ATC pocket sleeves and you fill each pocket up with whatever you choose whether it is a theme or just random stuff. Below is what Gina sent me. the top left corner beside the bag that holds the lamp is a pregnancy template for the Pocket Letters.
Jeanette Lane is the originator of Pocket Page Letters. You can join her Network for Pocket Letter Pals, you will need to sign up. This is her YouTube Channel with pocket letter ideas
I made my own template out of tags my friend Sandra in Cooranbong sent me (it came in real handy Sandra, thank you). I just remove the tag and place it in another sleeve ready for the next set of Pockets to be made up.
These are the backs of pocket letters
This is my pocket sleeve to Gina, ok I gotta get more creative next time and decorate better, mine looks so boring compared to Gina's LOL. I was leaning toward the clean and simple look tee hee.
I subscribe to a facebook page called Save the US Postal Service by Writing More Letters, they had an article about Winnie Blagden who was turning 100 and she had no family so the BBC radio station in Sheffield sent out an SOS for everyone to send her a birthday card. I participated in this momentous event where 16,000 cards from around the world were delivered to Winnie in 10 bags to her. I sent her postcard and a birthday card in an envelope, sadly I forgot to scan both for my keepsake hahaha. You can read all about it HERE, there is also a video in the link
A wonderful story about a postman doing his rounds and picking up stones to build this glorious monument called Palais Ideal du Facteur Cheval, which took him about 37 years, what dedication.
Joining Julia's Stamping Ground for more desk snoops around the world
EDITED: I forgot to mention in regards to the anniversary ATCs, I had a disaster with mine that you saw me earlier with. They were all curled up and I put them under some heavy boxes to uncurl and they all stuck together so I am remaking them again but the drying and flattening is taking its time and this time I am being more careful with it, so it will be in the mail soon to those who swapped with me.
