Getting There

I've had a few emails now from BPS members reporting sadly on the state of the postcards they've received — one arrived with just a few colourful bits of glue remaining on the front of what should have been a lovely collage, and another had the entire front torn off entirely. So, I'd just like to remind everyone again — if you're sending a collaged postcard (or adding anything to an existing one, or if it's delicate in any way) please protect your wonderful work from the vicissitudes of the world's postal services by putting it in an envelope before sending it.

I must say that this project is turning into a real learning experience about mail systems!

I've just learnt about BPS (via sfgirlbybay) and I'm SOOOOOO sorry it's closed for new members since I'd love to join in.If you ever decide to have another edition of this lovely and crative project, please LET ME KNOW!! My blog is all about it: putting some thought and heart into a postcard and share it. A warm 'hallo' to all the members of the project.

Should mine arrive in any way mangled, I can send another.

eeeks!! if mine was one that didn't make it let me know and I'll resend it! It didn't have THAT much extra stuff on it so I thought it'd survive but now I"m worried!! :S

I agree with Elz and Anneke! I feel worried that mine was mangled and I'd be happy to send a new one if that was indeed the case. They are all going into armored envelopes from here on out!
