Swap #40


Yay! I got all these wonderful postcards that I collect in the mail today (US mapcards, US state flags & old fashioned “letter scenes”). I found the Prescott family from Columbia, South Carolina, USA on a Facebook swap page. They were looking for USA mapcards, so I wrote to them. They sent me these lovely cards! 🙂

I sent the Prescotts the cards below that they wanted. They homeschool their kids, so I wrote some “fun facts” on the US mapcards about Virginia and Wisconsin!

Received Card #93

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!

Sent Card #90

This card went to Helen in South Carolina, USA whose favorite card is homemade. I sent her this one I made.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 3 days after traveling 574 km! Helen wrote, “Thanks a million for the postcard you designed a la Postcrossing. Intriguing site, isn’t this? I am crazy for the unanticipated message or card I may receive daily. Cheers.”

Direct Swap #13

Michael from Charleston, South Carolina contacted me about swapping cards, specifically the Virginia mapcard I have. Michael had a South Carolina mapcard, which I was excited to get today. I’m collecting mapcards, but not actively, so it’s great to get another one. I also LOVED seeing the new Emancipation Proclamation stamp. I bought a sheet of them the day they came out, but this was my first time receiving it on my mail!
