Hello! My name is Maria and this blog is about the amazing cards I have received and sent though Postcrossing.comΒ 

I am a graphic designer, but I took some time off to travel the country with a circus from 2010-11. I noticed a clown friend on Facebook kept adding pictures of postcards from around the world. I wondered how she was getting them, and found out she was signed up with Postcrossing. I signed up and was instantly addicted,Β since I love stamps and receiving real mail!

The process is very simple: you send a postcard to a random person in the world, and once they receive it and “register” it on the website, someone else receives your address and then you get a postcard! πŸ™‚
