I received three more today!  Once again, all the text looks pretty clear, but if it's not just let me know.   I love this first one-- the picture on the front and what it says seem so incongruous.    

I hope that reading all the other cards helped you realize that you're not alone in your confusion.  

This one made me so sad.  I hope things improve for you.

Here's the front of the third card--

But my favorite part is the back of it: 
  "This is my last postcard of the swap and it has no color, no pictures, nothing but the truth.  Thank you all for a great swap and a good dose of craftster therapy!"

Thank YOU!

Ooooh, I love this swap so much!  I received three yesterday.  I think the text is pretty clear on all of them, but if anyone would like it typed out, just let me know.   Smiley

I hope you can figure out what makes this happen and feel better. 

Aw... This is both really cute and really sad.  I'd hug you if I could, anonymous craftster. 

I'm going to do quite a bit of commenting later, but I don't wanna overwhelm anyone with a really long post.   Cheesy

I received three today!  My mom brought them with her when she took me to the doctor today.  The bad news is that I have a sinus infection and bronchitis.  The good news is that tomorrow I'll be home when the mail comes!!!

I definitely understand this first one...

Text says, "Sometimes I think I'm beautiful, and I feel uncomfortable and conceited.  Sometimes I feel ugly and I feel guilty for buying into the Hollywood beauty myth.  I can't win."  In addition to being all-around awesome, this was on such nice sturdy cardboard.  Thank you, anonymous Craftster!

Text says, "I see things in the dark.  I don't tell anyone because I am afraid they will think I am crazy"    That's tissue paper on there, ladies and gentlemen, aren't you jealous?!  Love it.

Text says, "I made up the "quotes" in my news article.  I got an award for it too."  It says "blah blah" around it.  This was a weird one for me to get.  The writing looks exactly like  my brother's, and he's really into journalism.  I don't know that he's done this, but I wanted to call and check when I saw it  Smiley

 I got a card yesterday and one today!  Sorry about the terrible picture quality, it really doesn't do the cards justice. 

Text says, "I don't think the Stitch 'N Bitch books are anything special" .   Smiley 


Text says, "I feel out of place"  with an arrow to the two people that says "them" and one to the individual that says "me" .  The back says, "And not just because I am the stepkid."    Well, anonymous craftster, you are not out of place here.   Smiley

Got my 2nd postcard today.  This one meant a lot to me. 

The back says, "That last word is schizophrenic (which is not the same as multiple personality disorder)  "

I would reccomend that the sender of this card read Steppenwolf, by Hermann Hesse.  I think artistic people have more of a tendency to see all the possibilities and open ourselves up for worrying about this.  ... Plus it's just a great book. 

Auuugh, the driving one!!! I dread when I'm done with my college apps because then I won't have the excuse of being too busy to go get my permit.

Got my first card yesterday!  Sorry about the lousy picture quality, my supposed scanner refuses to scan. 

The text says "I eloped so I wouldn't have to deal with my family.  Four years later, some are still mad."

Wow, thank you for sharing with everyone!
