Thank you, Keri at Keri Recommends, for hosting Poetry Friday today.
Someone recently told me that they think January is an awfully bleak month. The decorations and lights of November and December holidays are packed away and the bitter cold of winter has settled around us. I might have to suggest to this person that they participate in the #postcardXchange for 2018.
Here is what I have received thus far. They certainly have brightened my snow filled days. Mine are addressed about will be mailed once I am more thawed out. Hopefully, tomorrow as we have a seventh snow day for school.
Left: Diane Mayr’s. I am always intrigued by her collages and would love to know more about her process. And her postcard follows the Japanese New Year tradition of Nengajo.
Right Top: Joy Acey. I would love to go swimming in the warm waters of Hawaii right now.
Right Bottom: There wasn’t a name on this one and the envelope vanished. Thank you, Tabatha. I love the red of holly berries.
welcomed winter break
from the snow
Jone, you have spread winter cheer through your postcard poetry chain. I love the ones you have showcased and those I have received.
Yes, that’s mine, Jone! I realized after I made them that I had neglected to put my name on it. Duh!
Just this morning as I was about to throw the envelope away, I realized that if I did I wouldn’t know from whom I got it in just a couple of minutes! So I’m cutting and pasting your address from the envelope onto the back!
More gifts via the poetry exchange – fabulous!
I love the postcards! Definitely a tradition worth pursuing in the new year.
Lovely cards, lovely words.
The postcard surprises in my mailbox have been a bright light this month Jone. Love seeing yours!
Thank you for this project — it warms my heart. (Gotta get going on my cards so I can warm my recipients’ hearts!!)
I love this exchange. Thank you for sharing.
I still have mine to send out… oh, so late! But it will extend the season, right?
No worries. Getting mine ready.
You’ve got a lovely collection started! I love the variety — we all have wonderfully unique voices!
How wonderful! Full of comfort and cheer. Hats off to you for organizing this, Jone. (I’m late to last week’s party over here. My cards are going out tomorrow – 01-20) ;0)
