One drawback (minor) to being in postcard swaps is that I shouldn't post here until the cards have reached their destinations. When they go overseas, that can take quite awhile. And in the meantime, I've moved on to something else. And I forget. Not good.
Stir in the Christmas rush and stress, plus some postal strikes, and foul weather . . . and here it is mid-January before you get to see my Christmas postcards! (Unless you are one of the fortunate few to receive one, of course. ;-) )
OK, stop talking and start showing, huh? I made these to swap:
And here is what I got in return, from Gina and MaryLou:
[CORRECTION: Oops! I got that first postcard from Sheila in Scotland. I knew that! My swap with MaryLou was in October . . . wrong holiday! Thanks to Sheila for being so good natured about my absent-mindedness.]
MaryLou's is on the top. They are both really sparkly in real life! Now, don't you feel all Christmas-y all over again?
Then, while I was on a roll, I made some more postcards and sent them to some special friends.
I wish I could have sent them to everyone, but even good things have their limits.
I just sent out some postcards for January. But you will have to wait to see them. I think it's only fair for the person who it's made for to be the first to see it. Well, I think so anyway!
