making postcards for the postcard swap

A little over two years ago I participated in iHannas postcard swap for the first time. At the time I wrote my master thesis and felt a need to express myself creatively in some way, since most days consisted of nothing other than reading and writing. When I found the postcard swap it felt just right. There have been many postcard swaps hosted by iHanna after that, but since I have chosen to do other things instead, I have not had the time to participate. But this time around I felt that the time once again was right!

Everything about my postcard making process and the postcards I sent and received in 2012 can be found in the category ”the postcard swap 2012”.

This time, I made all my postcards in one sitting. So I dug out all my creative material and used the things that was still okay and had not dried up. It was an adventure in itself since I actually had not used my pencils and crayons and such in a looong time. So this time my cards actually has a kind of less is more feel about them. Or maybe, back to basic, is a more suitable description. You can see glimpses of the postcards in the photos from the process:
I plan to send this year’s postcards tomorrow and when they are safely at the post office I will post them here. So look back tomorrow for a closer look on this year’s postcards!

    Love the mess on your table! Så roligt att du kände dig manad att vara med igen Malin, du behöver motionera de där pennorna och andra material lite oftare! ;-) Hoppas du vill vara med igen.

      Ja, precis! Jag behövde verkligen motionera dem, och jag hoppas kunna vara med fler gånger. Men jag kände mig något ringrostig, faktiskt, haha! :) Som sagt, tack igen för en rolig idé!
