Feel free to post pics of the postcards you receive here!

(no one's told me that they don't want their postcard posted, so i guess it's fair game!)

Got the cutest postcard today from DarkHairedGirl!
I was so confused, cause the return address was mine, then I opened to Robot Love humor:) Thank you! Pictures to follow.

I always put the recipient's address in the "return address" area.  That way I know that no matter what, you'll get my envelope.  It's an old trick I learned from a girlfriend of mine.  She calls it "postal insurance".

Glad you liked the postcard!  I had a blast making all of them!  What's not to love about Robots? *grin*
Looking forward to yours!

Just wanted to speak up and say that I got mine from darkhairedgirl as well.  It is sooo cute!  Mine is called Robot Bliss and I LOVE IT! 

I'm going to have to make some marble magnets so I can display all these cutie valentine day cards. 
I'm sure there's been a marble magnet swap before, but it would be a fun one to start again for all of us to use!  We should do one.

I'll post pics as more people get their cards.

I've received so far from Jessicakes...and it's so incredibly clever what with the word play.
I have decided it would just be easier to post my links to the scans and update when I receive them.

And you know, if I could figure out how to make that link thingie work and look right, I would!

Okay, I am freaked out, i just put the stamps on and sent, not thinking of extra shipping for international, so if you are out of the US, and I get it back, I will resend ASAP. I have gotten 4 cards so far, So I will scan them soon!

This swap is spreading joy everywhere!

My mail carriers have commented on holiday yard decorations, landscape improvements, and sometimes the excessive amount of large packages received in a week addressed to and from myself. After I told them about the swap they have been checking out the crafty cards I'm receiving.

My younger brother (LilBro) has been living with me this past year after a work injury. Since he moved in, he's been my cohort in elaborate yard decorations. He's crafty and a handy-guy but has never had an outlet for it until now. It's great to have someone around to brainstorm with when I come up with an off-the-wall DIY or craft idea. He didn't know about the card swap until a few days after getting the cards in the mail. My favorite quote of the week has been from him: "You got ANOTHER one of those crazy cards today. You just have to see it!" This announcement came in the midst of a bad day and I was happy to learn that I had something great at home waiting for me.

In alphabetical order (with commentary), I've received cards from:

Atouria - "Whoa! Foamies can make it through the mail! Awesome!" I've always been reluctant to send foamies on postcards through the mail. Now I know they can survive.
Bluegoat - This was the one of the only cards I was able to see before LilBro did. When I posted it front-n-center on my fridge, my friends asked what the cute dude card was all about. Now they're all envious that I live with and "know" a crafty guy.
Craftacular - While LilBro is picking at the papers to see what type they are I'm screaming, "At least let me see whom it's from before you destroy it!"
crafty_dame - LilBro calls me at work: "The card today is really pretty. You should see the background. The pattern is probably what you've been looking for to put on your bedroom ceiling."  I'm getting jealous that he gets to see my mail and get great ideas from it before I do.
crazy_bc_jen - After spending a good amount of time removing the sticker that the post service placed on the crafty side of the card without damaging the artwork :::grrrr::: and then staring at it for a while, I would really like to use this design for the faux stained glass holiday project for the picture window in my kitchen.
darkhairedgirl - My mail carrier has learned that when I travel I mail a lot of things home addressed to and from myself rather than lug them around. "You sent yourself a Valentine? Thats different." was his comment. Love Me Do was the first card I received from the swap.
Jessicakes - The dictionary pages is such a great idea! Of course, the first thing I had to notice was the picture of the louver boards being that I'm a construction manager. My boyfriend grinned at the 'rock bottom' and 'rollaway' entries at the top of the card. He's very anti-valentine.
Pyawhacket - This is the card that initiated the quote of the week.

So far, every card I've received has arrived on a different day. It's a daily dose of goodness. Sorry I haven't PMed anyone, but my computers have been kaput. I think my computer is finally running and stable enough to re-connect the scanner to it. If so, I'll post scans before the weekend.

Hey! Your cards are all awesome. Smiley I have to be stereotypical though and totally give props to the 'crafty guy' bleugoat. Your card was adorable. You must get all of the girls. You are all so inspiring though! I wanted to make some Valentine Day cards to send out Wink ACK! I need to do it tonight.

Well, as I thought I have received almost 5 of my cards back for extra postage. (I sent 18). I put eyelets on them, and apparantly that makes the cost of the postcard go up. I am resending today and any others I may recieve back again, I will resend. ARGH!

i've gotten so many fun postcards! i love them all! i got one more after taking this picture, the bee's knees one from is she an orange. that's one of my favourite phrases from the 20s!


from jessicakes (i love that it uses the SWEET page from the dictionary), from krysta (yay glitter!)
cassiopia1 (thanks so much for still sending them!), IQJones (lyrics from one of my fave songs!)
kayceeann (i wish it had made it in one piece!), pyawhacket (i love the written stamp!)
annette (porn by numbers because she likes me!), bookish (i love the quote!) 


from aspiring (i particularily like how the quote refers to "at least one other person", i'm tired of all the "love means a perfect single match" stuff),
from craftacula (i like that you used black!), bfkirsch (i love that you decorated both sides!)
from annette (what a great use of a cheezy book!), bluegoat (it's amazing!), from blackcat (sexy valentine! with glitter! that's great!), darkhairedgirl (dirty dirty mr robot!)

a few of them seem to have gotten a bit damaged though... boo! the VD card is just a bit ripped, but what was on the front of the one with the grommets that kayceeann made?


has everyone received all their cards? please let me know if you don't get at least 12!
