So I went out of town for a few days last week and when I returned I had four new cards waiting for me from Kat Sloma’s postcard swap! Woohoo! That makes the full six for the swap. The first time I did this, only four cards made it to my house. You can read about the cards I sent in to share here and about the first two cards I received here.
My last batch was such a mixed bag of goodies. The first came all the way from Mary Jane in Brisbane, Australia. Since I had just returned from a few days in San Diego, this one of the “Surf Lifesavers” really made me smile. I guess even lifeguards (as we call them in The States) like to enjoy the ocean view as well. At least, I’d like to think they’re enjoying the view and not deciding if someone needs rescuing. Ack. I really love the inclusion of the flag as well.
Another card was from Ariel Sublett who is from Las Vegas. The detail and thought in her art is just lovely. Her card is faith based and she states on the back that she “used the 7th principle of the Unitarian universalism as inspiration: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” The quote from Francis David on the back is so lovely. “We need not think alike to love alike.” Amen to that, Ariel!
Card Three is titled “Ominous” and came from Marcia Hill in Vermont. Her handmade card is a real photo on cardstock. What a treat! Just beautiful. A cool thing about this card was that it was postmarked from the National Postal Museum Station at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Thanks, Kat! That was brilliant of you. And thank you to whomever mailed them all from there. That was no small job, I’m sure.
And lastly, I received the lovely “Layered Autumn” from our most generous host, Kat Sloma.
Thank you, Kat for your time, talent and organization skills beyond compare. This has been so much fun. Thanks for inspiring us to get our work into a sharable format. Being a photographer, it’s always such a treat to connect with other artists who work in other mediums. I’m always so impressed with the work that people share.
