I'm joining in again!  Hopefully this (and the ABC ATC swap) will fill the void that not joining the Adult Swim swap has left in my heart  ;)

I hope more people join this swap. It's going to be so much fun. FicklePegasus I'm also in the ABC ATC Swap. I collect atcs and postcards. They've both become addicting haha.

I don't collect postcards...yet!  If I get involved in too many more of these, I'll have a collection going! lol  Right now the only ones I have are the one TwistedBlood sent me for the winter pc swap and the drawerful I have for sending randomly to my neices/nephews.  I think my hubby may be peeved at me starting a new collection!  As for ATCs, I only have the one I made.  I look forward to getting more of those (and making them)

I am really looking forward to making a postcard for this swap, I can't wait to get my partner and their info so I can start brainstorming! Then I can probably get it done on Wednesday (my day off) or at least get supplies and start it!

Post by: Kitten Wrangler on March 16, 2008 09:04:44 PM
Not intentionally!! It's just that there seems to be a certain group of Craftsters who all want to do the same swaps.

We're obviously all nuts.

I would be interested to get one of yours and I don't even know what they would look like. But I enjoy photography so that would be nice. How do you make them, if I may ask?

Please don't think I'm a photographer! But if I had to send another shit-boring shot of Melbourne's skyline taken by Steve Parrish I will go completely crazy. I like my photos better than the bland-yet-professional ones that are available in shops.

They're nothing special at all. I take photos of stuff... usually boring stuff with boring angles and what not. If I'm lucky, they're in focus. Every now and then, I get something that looks a bit more exciting. I like to muck around with colour levels, and I get stuff that looks fun... lately I've been trying to make my photos look like those oversaturated things from the 70s.

Then it's easy - I print onto gloss photo paper, glue to card, glue card to plain paper, and cut out. Voila - a postcard-like object. Though I might see if I can get a wee bit more exciting than that.

I can't wait to find out who my swap buddy is so I can start planning my postcards. :) 

Also, quick question.  This is my 1st swap here on craftster.  When we get postcards from the swap can we show the pictures here on crafster or do people usually make a flickr group for it or something?  I'd just like to see everyones cards. :)

There will be  gallery posted here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=84.0 when the first card is sent.  Not everyone has Flickr, so a group on there wouldn't work out anyway. Check out some of the galleries in the link, people have posted amazing stuff.

I don't know if we would get paired up or not (I'm swapping one home made and three store bought) but I would still be interested! I like to take random pictures as well, interesting shapes usually inspire me more than anything! So my pictures aren't what you would normally see in a store either. I have a few that I really like though and it would be fun to make them into postcards so thanks for the how-to

I would just ask those people for more specifics, offer suggestions and see what they like, or stalk them to see what they are into.

It's always a bit of a challenge when you have multiple partners.  I'm having difficulty with a couple of mine.

I wouldn't mind receiving a card from the Smoky Mountains.  I grew up in Appalachia.

soo this might be a really obvious question to answer but ; even though its a postcard swap...  are we supposed to send them in sealed envelopes? I guess some people would want to resend, not just collect these...
 i just figured it was equally legit to cover the back if we wanted them to be blank again, but since its not specified, thought i'd just ask before sending.

send them in envelopes if they are homemade, just to be sure the post office doesnt rip them or tear something etc.
Also, unless specified by the swapper, right on the back of the card to your partner :)

I wasn't sure either, so I just sent a PM to everyone I'm sending to asking what they'd prefer. Most don't mind, one wants them sent as a postcard.

Yay, gallery! I can't wait to see them all! ;D

I have two ready to drop into the postbox, so just need to pick up one and craft one.

Is it okay if I put my crafted one in an envelope? I don't want it to be wrecked by Royal Mail....

I have sent all my postcards....


..... why do they seem to take so long to travel? They're small. Light. Can fit into any airplane cargo hold.

C'mon little cards!! Arrive!

OMFG.


I've just realised that I TRANSPOSED MY APARTMENT AND STREET NUMBERS!

Aiiiieeeee!! No wonder my mailbox is being empty.

Still, Pinokeeo's card has found its way to me - hopefully the others will as well. I might go pop a note into the mailbox of the person who's suddenly receiving postcards.

Yeah, since we don't put return addresses on postcards, there would be no way to get them back or forward them on.
