I've always liked having penpals and friends around the world to exchange letters, cards and little gifts. It is a great way to get to know people and their lifes. The internet made things a lot easier!
I joined the Postcard Fairies (PcF), an international network of people who send each other postcards (often selfmade) and keep in contact online. It's a wonderful group to be part of. Most of the members live in the USA, but the rest of the world is closing in!
Through the PcF I heard about Nervousness, a community to exchange, swap, contribute, etc. all kinds of creative stuff. I've worked on a lot of LMAO's (Land Mail Art Objects) and started some myself. Unfortunately a lot of Nervousness stuff got lost in the mail. That's why we started the PcF Creative Journal Club. Everyone made a journal and send it around the world to let others fill up a few pages. I joined two rounds, but in the last one Mr. Postman didn't cooperate again. Only my journal from the first round came back. :-(
If you want to take a look at the pages and journals I made for PcF and Nervousness, visit my Yahoo Photo Album.
At the moment I'm participating in two postcard exchange projects. You can see and read about them if you click on the links under Exchanges in the left column.
