Snail mail lives!

Awhile back a good friend, Faiza, told me about a *project* she was participating in called Postcrossing. She had signed up to send postcards to random people around the world who had also signed up to send postcards. In return, the senders receive postcards too. Being a lover of real snail mail [not bills or credit card promos!], I thought this was something I should check out. I finally signed up and wrote my first 3 postcards tonight. They are going to Finland, Russia and Massachusetts, USA.

I also *borrowed* Faiza's idea to use Vistaprint to make a batch of my very own postcards. I used a photo I took in Brooklyn back in May of some *inspirational* graffiti I used to see on my walks to work:

Perfect light during an evening walk to meet my book group ladies.

I know I'm notorious for being gung-ho at the beginning of a project and losing steam somewhere along the line, so we'll see how long I stick with this one. My goal is to send out the 100 postcards I ordered. I'll post the ones I receive too!

Another spotting of You Go Girl's work on the West Side Highway. Pretty decent shot for being in a moving vehicle, eh?

Ooo, this sounds like so much fun! Hmm, maybe I should try it too.

Love the pics!

So glad to see that you joined. It's so much fun once you start getting postcards back!
