Melinda and I are excited to participate in the new Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap for this spring (2014) and invite you to join with us. You can read all about it here. The deadline for registration is February 25th. It’s free to register, so sign up today and start working on your postcard.
What is the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap? Creative people from all over the world make a postcard based on their interpretation of the assigned theme and incorporate stitching in the design on the card. They send the card to the person assigned to them and wait to receive a card in the mail from some where in the world. The theme for this swap is CREATE. You can view some of the postcards from previous swaps to get ideas by scrolling to the bottom of the information page.
Last fall I made a postcard for the swap and you can read about what I did. The theme then was CELEBRATE and I chose my design to represent my celebrating the wonderful news of two new babies joining our family this year. Melinda was not able to participate in the swap last fall because she was in the middle of the first months of pregnancy of just trying to make it through each day. I had a lot of fun creating my postcard and sending it to England. I will admit I was a little disappointed that a postcard never reached my mailbox. It was to be coming from another country so who knows where it might have gone? But that isn’t stopping me from doing it again– the joy was in creating something special to send to someone else.
So will you join us in the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap? Sign up by midnight, February 25th. Let us know in the comments that you signed up.
