Post crossing? Heard of it? - No I hadn't until recently, but now i'm a convert. I even made sure I took part by adding it to my 52 Things list ' # Partake in Post crossing'. All done and dusted- another thing I can cross of my list!
All you have to do is find some postcards and send them to various people around the world- such a good idea- as you then receive 5 postcards in return. My class and I are having fun sticking pins into a map to see where I have to send a card too- and more excitingly- seeing where we receive them from..
My Borneo postcards are being sent to Hong Kong, Holland, Germany, Russia and the United States- It's a great little way of bringing people together across the globe and finding out a little more on the way. Plus of course there's nothing quite like receiving proper 'Snail mail'.
This gorgeous postcard was actually taken by one of student's mums- I'm very envious of her photography skills!
Which leads me to my next little nugget of super stuff- a swap- again some thing I've wanted to do but haven't yet- This time I have signed up for, not one but two swaps, this February.
The first is a valentine themed send-little-love-swap. organised by Tracey- so cool. so cute, so heart shaped and pink!
I've been linked with Lizzy at handmade-homemade-lizzy
and am looking forwarded to swapping some goodies with her. Lizzy also led me in the direction of creativechaosnz who are hosting a 'Share your country swap', where you swap items from the country you live in.
Someone will end up on the receiving end of some Borneo treats.
I just love the thought of all those parcels criss-crossing all over the world to share with like minded people. It's funny that we are all connected by cyberspace and wouldn't know each other otherwise, but yet it's the postal service and snail mail that brings happiness:)
Do you like snail mail too?
Until next time, Amanda x
