Saturday Snapshot- Postcrossing

IMG_5090I’ve done a couple of posts on Postcrossing and my love of sending and receiving postcards from around the world.  I’ve received 133 cards from around the world in the 14 months since I started and I decided that I needed a place to keep them all organized by a few different categories so I started another blog Postcarder.  At this point I’m just showing the front, the stamp, and listing whether they told me their favorite book or movie.  It’s bare bones, but I wanted something basic before I received too many cards to deal with.  You can look by country or a few of the categories that I’ve found with the cards.  Maybe I’ll occasionally do a favorites or stats post over there, but I’m not taking the time now.

I would love to receive a postcard from you with a favorite book or movie that I can add to my collection.  You’ll show up on my other blog 🙂  If you need my address just leave a comment and I’ll send it to you and I’ll return the favor 🙂

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

  1. What a cool idea. The idea, though, of participating in one more new venture makes me dizzy. How do you do it?

  2. I’ve seen stuff about postcrossing and thought how lovely it is, but I don’t know if I’m organised enough to do it! You’ve got a nice collection of postcards there. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/usn8yL

  10. How awesome. Some look like note cards? Are they all postcards? (Maybe it’s just a while since I’ve purchased one)

    Stacy do you recall if I sent you one over the last 5+ years?? I’d be happy to.

  13. that’s such a cool idea! I remember when my daughter was in Kindergarten the teacher asked for postcards from around the world. . .that was over 10 years ago. . .I can only imagine how many her K class would have gotten if I’d had my blog, Twitter, Facebook, etc. etc. back then! I imagine you’ll be getting quite a few 🙂 What a lovely idea!
