Another Postcrossings Update

Remember my past blog about If not read it here in my September posts or at my AC site here:

I had sent out about 10 cards and only received 3 myself so I was beginning to feel discouraged. Not any more! This week there has been a surprise in my mailbox everyday. I even recieved a postcard and my 1st Christmas card this year both on the same day from kind postcrossings members. It's been lots of fun and even my husband is starting to get excited about it.

I love the red roofs on this card from Leiden.

We both found this card very comical. I want to believe too, how about you?

This is a homemade card from Italy.

And my very first Christmas card this year. It's a bit early I know but hey, it's from the Netherlands. She even included a couple bags of tea and a nice little tree pin in the card. Thanks Karin and Merry Christmas to you too.

Well that's my update. I have more cards and have added them to my postcard wall at my postcrossings site. You can view them there and if you get bored and want something to do check out all of the cards that have been downloaded at postcrossings. There are cards from many different countries, some beautiful, some inspirational and some downright comical.

Enjoy the rest of your week. Hey it's almost Friday, I better get some sleep.

night night,

Hi Tess,

You left a comment on my blog wanting to know how the bookmarks worked. Basically they go on the top corner of the pager you are on. So imagine the corner of the page fitting into the top triangle part of the bookmark and then just close the book. Does that make sense? I can take a picture and post it too, or maybe I will anyway :) Thanks for checking out my blog

I so want to do this! It looks so fun. It's like a mini trip around the world.

LAney, It has been a lot of fun and is so easy to do. My most recent postcard is from Japan. She wrote in English and a little in Japanese. Really pretty handwriting too. It was neat seeing my name written in Japanese. I sent a card to China last week.
