The Exchange is NOW CLOSED.


ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BE PART OF THE POSTCARD EXCHANGE, PM ME YOUR SNAIL MAIL ADDRESS.
I will put all the addresses together and send them to everyone else.

Send at least ONE postcard or home-made card to EACH person on the list. You may go through the list once or 10 times, but send AT LEAST ONE to EACH person on the list.
Once it's off and running, you are on your own.

Cut off date for getting on the list will be Sunday, July 6.

Take your time if you are making hand made cards. There is no deadline on SENDING cards. I just ask that you SEND THEM. :-)

Hopefully that sounds okay to everyone.

For those who don't think they have craft abilities-most craft stores (Michael's, Joanne's, etc...) sell kits with all the paper and do dads to make 'hand made' cards. I looking forward to pulling all my stamps, ink, etc out.

This is an awesome smiley....:

Okay, mine are going to be late but I'm in as long as I can do weird stuff like writing "Having a wonderful time, wish you were here" on the back of a collage of pictures of protestors getting tazered or making postcards out of dd's generic sposie tampon boxes.

A postcard can be anything you want it to be as long as it is aproximately 4" x 6" and has a stamp and an address on it.

I can't believe I'm getting the opportunity to express my inner freak with the US Postal system again! I was seriously in a long distance relationship for almost five years that began on the back of a postcard. It was strange and ultimately apocalyptic, but never boring.

The post card exchange is now CLOSED.

I didn't get a pm with an addy from one of you that said you wanted in.
I guess you must have changed your mind?

ANYWAY... PM with the master address list will come out today. If somehow I didn't get your info on the list, PLEASE, LET ME KNOW!!!!

Can't wait!
