Those are great! What do you use as a base so they are hard enough to send as mail? Who do you send them to? They sure are lucky recipients!

thanks!
i am currently repurposing some SAT prep postcards that were here at my library and never got sent out.  cereal boxes are the right weight, about, for sturdy postcards, though, and you can get several from a box.  Smiley
i have a mailing list of friends--i asked my friends on facebook who wanted to get occasional postcards.  i can't believe more people didn't take me up on it!  i would have been all over that magic.

Those woven ones are intriguing! I've been thinking about doing some paper weaving recently too! Of course, mine wouldn't be anywhere near that artsy... And is that a hand carved umbrella stamp? Very sweet.

paper weaving is super fun--i put some old maps through my shredder and i particularly like the way they look, but cutting the strips into different widths makes it more interesting looking, i think, plus it makes my sloppy self seem "arty" instead of messy...right?  Wink
didn't cut the umbrella stamp myself, i'm sorry to say, but it did come from a local san francisco business, so i'm gonna assume someone in my fair city made it!

my friend Ben is just finishing up his medical residency and will finally be getting started on his career.

just a little print gocco alien i had sitting around that i sent to a friend who mentioned her daughter loves getting mail.  Smiley  it looks smeary in the scan, but it's actually a sparkly gold.
