This month Inspiration Avenue hosted a POSTCARD SWAP. All postcards must be mailed out by the end of the month. We each sent to 5 different people. My postcards went out in the mail today. I had a blast making them. This was our first swap as a team and it was my first postcard swap period. I am looking forward to doing another one. If you didn't make this swap, I hope you will join us on the next one.

I thought I would share some of the postcards that I made. I stitched most all of them and I think some of my favorite ones to make were those using re-purposed cardboard inserts from our pizza boxes. I mailed 5 postcards out, a few went to a local boutique and some
went to my Etsy shop. I am already excited about making more. Who gets a handwritten letter in the mail anymore, much less a handmade postcard!  I can't wait to receive mine!

  3. These are beautiful! What a wonderful job you've done. You've inspired me to try to make postcards, which I've never done. Nice going.

    1. Thank you Gloria! You should try, the cards are 4 x 6 and you are really just doing some art on a smaller scale. Warning... it's very addicting!! In a good way!!

      Thank you for stopping in!!

  4. LOVE <3<3 Wow you have given me some ideas!!!!

  5. I adore these Kim, every one! Love the stitching and that some are re-cycled pizza boxes, I'd never have guesed that it was possible to make something so lovely from a pizza box! I really wish I'd had time to take part, maybe next time :)

  6. LOVE these - enjoyed having a look around your blog

  7. Wow. These are fantastic. I'm new to your blog - wonderful!
