Yes I have VA and Ky.

I just got to the PO Box today.

My son is making a fancy dancy spreadsheet to track all this stuff!

 

Thanks everyone!

We received Washington State today: yeah!  It's the first postcard since Ohio & Arizona in October. 

Thank you!

Still trying to find post cards, I know there are tons of postcard, we live in Colorado after all, but we live in the city not near any tourist stuff. Thursday we'll go looking for some.

So far we've received a grand total of four (4).  We sent out 21.(actually 42 since we did 2 states)  I know life gets in the way but this isn't very fun for DS.

I'm going to write this off as a learning experience.

I'm not on the swap but when we did this, we got them from our local "Visitor's Center" aka the Chamber of Commerce. Your state tourist office can probably send you a batch as well.

Ugh... we got blindsided with family issues.  You'll be receiving ours (from MN) a bit late!  SORRY!  I know we received a few already and my son is so excited!  Also glad that it gave us a "model" to follow!  :D

Would love to do this with my 4yo dd!  She loves learning about the states!  Is it too late?  We live in upstate New York most of the year, but Delaware the rest of the time, so we could do Delaware which you don't have yet!

I'm not the original orgainzer of this, but I could perhaps pm you the list, and to MI, too  The problem is we've only received 5 of 23 or so states and we've been waiting a month & a half.

I know CO & MN are still trying.  How about the rest of you all?  Chime in and let us know what your plans are, please:

AK

AR

CA

CT

FL

GA

HI

IL

IN

NJ

NM

NY

NC

SD

UT

WI

MA

NV

TX

 

Thanks,

Kristina

We got a card from FL on 11/25, I thought it was from here.  So maybe FL is coming Edwards' mom.  We also received, KY, Missouri, Va and WA,  I sent out OH and AZ.   Nothing else has been received.

 

I honestly gave up any expectation and DS went back to postcrossing.com

Ack! So sorry everyone! Life kind of got in the way and by the time things settled down, I figured I'd wait until after the holidays (kind of assumed that's what everyone else was thinking too as we've only received a few cards. Don't give up just yet!

(We're Utah by the way and we've received WA, OH, AZ & VA.)

OK everybody:  it's been 4 months since this idea got started.  Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are behind us.  We're 2 weeks into the New Year, and it's only a month until Valentines.  My kids, and 4 others have sent out bunches of postcards.  We've received 5 back.  5!  Some other people have given up hope, but I guess I'm just a cockeyed optimist.  Help support my addiction to optimism.  Please don't send me to optimists anonomous!

Being New Yorkers, we try to stay away from areas where postcards are sold.  We finally got them last week and will be sending them next week.  I have no problem getting them slowly.  I think it will be a nice surprise to get one in June.  I know some of you are waiting, so we will get ours done.

June?  Really?  By then I probably will have moved.  My kiddo and I have give up hope on this long ago.

Just to clarify: to anyone wanting to join up: 5 kids sent out about 24 postcards each, which was a lot of work for them, and have been waiting months for return postcards.  I am hoping that that will eventually happen, but in the meanwhile, I won't be adding anyone else to this list.

This is kinda why we used to only allow any kind of swaps in the MDC Swaps forum, where there was feedback and membership requirements and more accountability and stuff like that. People were unhappy about that so we relented and started allowing things like Valentine swaps and postcard swaps here... but if you're unhappy with the lack of response here, you might want to keep your swaps over there, because members tend to take those swaps more seriously...

Yes, but most of the folks who are in this have hundreds, or thousands, of posts.

Last year we participated in the Valentines swap: we sent out 25 cards and recieved 25 cards back.  That was very nice, and I was hoping for something similar for my kids.

Mamas (& your patient kids!), I am SO sorry. I'll be the first to admit, I've been a huge flake! Just picked up a stack of postcards. Need to run to the post office for postcard stamps tomorrow morning and ours will be on their way!

TX will come out soon. I promise. We've had a crazy few months and I feel really bad for for forgetting about this. But I have them all ready to be addressed and they will go out asap.
