Lo-Wing from Hong Kong asked me to swap over the summer, and I forgot to post about it. It was truly an amazing swap! We exchanged several stamps, and I’m forever grateful for the ones she sent me! She also made two postcards for me from stamps and laminated them – such a neat idea! Thank you such much Lo-Wing! 🙂

Jessica from Hong Kong loves history, so I sent her this card from the White House of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia. I also added some Civil War themed stamps and wrote a little bit about the Civil War!

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 7 days after traveling 13,277 km! Jessica wrote, “Thank you so much for the postcard! So historical, I love it so much! It is so cute to know such history and the stamps are beautiful! If you don’t mind giving your address to me, I would like to send you a postcard to thank you.” Aw! I’m so glad she liked the card. What a really sweet response! 🙂

Inga from Klaipedos, Lithuania likes mapcards so I sent her one of Virginia. She asked on her profile to write down my favorite quote, so I told her mine is “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Luke 6:31) I also like “Genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.”(Thomas Edison)

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 7 days after traveling 7,160 km! Inga wrote, “Thank you sooo much for the beautiful map postcard and nice stamps. I love it. The quote from the Bible is my favorite too. Nice to meet you in postcrossing!”

Aleksandra from Nowy Sącz, Poland sent me this card of Kraków, because she said her city doesn’t have any interesting cards. Hahhha 🙂 I send cards from other cities too, because I think the ones where I live are boring. She recommended a singer called “Iron & Wine”, who I’ve never heard of, but I mentioned him to a friend and he said he was good.

Birgit in Kirchlengern, Germany sent me this card of her hometown. 🙂

Yan from Hong Kong studies printing & publishing and wants to be a writer. She contacted me about swapping me for my Postcrossing airmail card. She said she also collects stamps! Yay! She asked me how many to send and I told her I’d send as many as she sent me. 🙂 She sent me all these fabulous things on April 22, and today she received my letter.
