All the pretty postcards...

The cards I received

The cards I sent - did you get one?


Do you remember back here when I told you about the Liberate your Art postcard swap that Kat was organising for the second year and that I was going to participate in it for the second year.

Well,  I've now received all 5 postcards plus one extra that Kat sent out to everyone who participated (all 192 of them!).  My 5 have also all been sent out into the world and have all hopefully found new homes by now.  There is a Facebook page where folk have been posting (no pun intended) the postcards they receive but so far I've only managed to locate one of mine that LeAnne received and it had a pretty serendipitous story behind it!  

Kathryn Hall's sunshine card (no website given)

From 13-16 September there's going to be a blog hop so that everyone can hopefully meet up with those that received their cards and those who they received cards from.

Massive thanks to Kat for hosting and organising the swap again this year.  It was no mean feat to sort all the cards out - think of the amount of stamps that needed sticking for a start!

A gorgeous photo and a great quote but unfortunately no contact details!
The swap is a great way to discover other artists from all over the world who you may not come across otherwise - I hadn't met any of the folk I got cards from in any of the other art communities before, so that's 5 new artists/photographers I've now been introduced to!

And the lovely photo that Kat made into postcards to send to all of us:

  1. Again, thanks so much for the lovely card. It was indeed serendipitous and it has a treasured spot in my office as a reminder :) Your art is lovely and I'm so glad you liberated some of it my way!

  5. I remember reading about this but as I have been all swapped out this year I (regrettably) decided not to participate. If this is an ongoing swap next year I will love to have a go. Love your cards xxxx

  9. Amazing postcards! You hit the jackpot, didn't you? And here's another coincidence...LeAnne who got your dog postcard lives here in the same town as me, and I adopted my shelter dog from Happy Tails, the place she is doing the benefit book for!
