Postcard Swap

I participated in an etsy postcard swap recently. The idea behind it is to swap postcards with someone who lives in another country to you. It’s a fun thing to do especially because these days I think most of us hardly ever get handwritten mail.

The postcard in the photo was sent to me by Betsy who runs the etsy shop ZestyB. Her shop is filled with beautiful handcrafted jewelry in sterling silver, copper and brass. Betsy lives in Boston Massachusetts and the postcard shows some fall (Autumn) scenery from around the state.

A postcard swap is a great idea! I'm doing a couple of friendship books with friends all around the world right now :)

What fun! I would love to do something like that! Know of any more?

Shells - I am not sure what friendship book is.

Hana - I am not sure if there are any postcard swaps going on at the moment. If I find another one I will let you know.

Anyone on etsy wishing to participate in a postcard swap should check out this forum thread:

thanks so much for the lovely mention! I love getting mail ~ especially postcards.

If you're interested in other postcard swaps, check out PostCrossing...I have an article about it on my blog, too.

Thanks Betsy for the postcard. I hope mine reaches you soon.

I tried to leave a comment on your blog but I can't seem to figure out how to leave one.
