Kat asks everyone to produce five postcards and send them to her. Then she exchanges them around (over 1000 cards!) and sends them out one batch at a time. It's great fun, going to the mailbox and finding a beautiful piece of art from somewhere in the world. Then Kat tops it off with a card of her own! I got some beautiful ones.
The first card was most delightful to me:
This is from Deanna Swauger, who blogs at Snippets from Springdale. I love sunflowers and was so happy to receive this beautiful card. The detail is wonderful.
The second card was from Teena at GodTags. In each card she sent there was a different word, and mine was "created," which is certainly meaningful to me.
The third one is from Maria Ontiveras, who blogs at Gallo Organico. I love the kind of steampunk-children's book feeling of it.
The third one came from Elissa at Gallery Dee. What amazes me about this beautiful image is that it's the first watercolor Elissa ever did! I'm amazed.
The next one came from Darnita at At the Art of It. This picture certainly doesn't do it justice, because it's dark and swirly and starry and beautiful.
Just two more. Here's the card that Kat herself sent:
Isn't it lovely? And this is the one I sent --
It was great fun to do this, and I encourage everyone to get involved next year. It's like a little gift in your mailbox when they come.
Kat has a video of all the cards on her post, if you'd like to see them all. It's pretty amazing.
