Readymade or Handmade Postcards?


I've recently had a few people ask me rather worriedly if it's okay for them to send store bought postcards rather than making their own — so I'll just say here and now that of course it is! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the lovely handmade ones, but what members choose to send is just as interesting — and makes the final mix of postcards that much more varied and wonderful. So relax, enjoy the project and — most importantly — have fun!

Thank you, Lori. Last evening, I had a (quiet) mini-meltdown at an otherwise lovely al fresco dinner: "Oh what have I done? I don't have time to make cards. Everyone will be making these gorgeous cards...oh no..." Then I was encouraged to give myself a break. Done. But it still helps that you posted this today.

Cheers!

Susan

phew! i just moved house and all my craft stuff is still in storage so I was freaking out a touch about having to send local cards... I did attempt to personalise them a little though, it's amazing what a bit of regular coloured paper can do! :)

i'm going to have to see a hand crafted on in action before i trust something handmade going to the postal service!

thisgirlandthatguy: Good point — and why I recommend that handmade cards with any added items (such as layers of paper, beads, sparkles, or heavily textured paint) should be placed in an envelope for mailing!

I just found out about this project and I am so bummed that I wasn't able to join you! What an incredibly lovely idea, best of luck.
