This past week I submitted five postcards to Kat Sloma’s “Liberate Your Art 2014 Postcard Swap“. I also participated in 2012. In a nutshell, Kat collects postcard art submissions from those who want to participate, shuffles them, and then we each get five pieces of art from five other artists. The beauty is that we are all made to reproduce our art in a postcard form (no original art is accepted). For a photographer, it’s nice to get an image out of the computer. Printing and holding ones art give it a lot of power.
This year I chose five of my favorite shots from a trip we took to Italy last summer.
I ordered my postcards from Moo. I hadn’t ordered the Luxe Postcards before, and now I’m in love with them. The card stock is so nice and heavy. They make for a great keepsake postcard. That little gem of a quote in the first picture came with the postcards.
We all write a little something to our recipients and include our information if we like. I was a little hesitant to include my baby webpage on there, but here we are!
Ready for shipping to Kat!
I can’t wait to see what pieces I get in return this year. There are some amazing artists who participate, so it’s always a good time to see what people receive. I’ll be posting the ones I get as they come in. If you get one of mine, let me know! I’d love to see where they end up.

Gorgeous. I had the best of intentions of participating, but time got away from me. I have done it before though and it is so much fun to get cards and see where yours end up.
Thank you, Leanne! I did think of you while picking photos. I loooove your shots of Venice.
Your images were beautiful! They reminded me of my many trips to Venice, while living in Italy. Lovely!!
Thank you for hosting such a fabulous event, Kat. You’ve blessed us all with your gift of time and organization!
