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

Thank you Tara for hosting Poetry Friday at A Teaching Life today.
It’s summer and thanks to Tabatha Yeatts, I get write and send poems out to participants during the summer. I also receive little packages of poems.
Last week or so I received a joy bundle from Joy. Not only did it have this fun poem(and words to live by), but a cool little surfboard for my mobile (how did she know), a letter, one of her grownup poems and an envelope with words to create my own poem. Thank you, Joy.
This week, I was blessed with this treasure tote bag from Donna in Maine. The photo is mine and she wrote a poem to go with it. I am using this tote tomorrow to deliver four photos to the Clackamas County Fair. Thanks, Donna.
This supports our community of writers so much. It’s so fun to create. I have two more to send out before the end of summer.
Poetry Friday is upon us. Write Time is hosting us today. It’s her first time so here’s a big welcome. Thanks for hosting us all.
I returned from my time in Idaho to find a poetry postcard from Joy Acey. How fun to recieve one after sending out many in April.
Here’s to dreams coming true.
