So funny! Michael from South Carolina asked me to swap in January, so I agreed and we had a great swap. 🙂 Today I received another card from him, because he got my address randomly via Postcrossing! I LOVE the stamp he put on the envelope! And the cancellation came out beautifully! I’ve seen this cancellation many times but this is the best I’ve been able to cut off an envelope!

Artemiy from Novorossijsk, Russia asked me to swap – he liked my Virginia mapcard. We both sent our cards in late February, but he received mine 2 weeks later, and I received his 2 months later! The postal service is such a mystery to me! 🙂 I wish I could walk around that little Russian village in the postcard – it looks so peaceful and comforting!
Galina teaches programming in Moscow, Russia. She sent me this neat card and super awesome handmade envelope today. And I just love the stamps! I’ve never seen them before!

Valery from Kiev, Ukraine wrote on her profile that her dream is to visit NY and London. I’ve lived in both of those amazing cities so I wrote her and said MY dream is to visit Kiev! 🙂 Kiev looks like such an exotic and intriguing place. I’ve wanted to go there for many years. On her postcard wishlist were cards from NYC, so I sent her this one. It made me really miss Brooklyn!

Michelle in Tainan, Taiwan sent me this cool card of hot springs. I’m in love with the food stamps!

I love these stamps so much, I actually went to ebay.com and bought the whole mint strip right after I registered the card! 🙂
