Finally, an update.

I've been slammed with school and then busy at home so I haven't had a chance to update this for awhile. I've gotten some awesome new received postcards and some new ones for my private collection. I'll update first with my favorite received postcards and then do another post later with the new postcards for my private collection.

DE-723249 I love huskies and the user wrote the nicest message on the back. Totally made my day.

FI-918631 Yay for Christmas postcards!

FI-923504 Snow scene with a Christmas tree in the front.

DE-721575 Mailboxes!

JP-131486 I just thought that something about this was very pretty.

Favorite of the week

I recently added "anything related to Christmas" to my favorites list on my profile and I received a lovely postcard from a user in Germany. It still makes me smile.

My Ordered Postcards Arrived....

Today, both my and order arrived and to be honest, I wasn't 100% happy with the results. The book of postcards I ordered from were ok. I think they'll still make people happy when I send them out and I do think they're interesting. I won't be buying this book of postcards again though. The order really disappointed me. I ordered four different designs (eight prints of each design) and was not happy with how one of the Christmas ones came out. I think whoever took the picture and uploaded it must not have been very good with focusing and using their flash because it seems blurry to me. However, the cat one is super great and the other two Christmas designs are good too. I will be ordering different designs next time. I have lots to choose off of my favorites list on their site so hopefully it'll work out better next time.

I did it again....

I ended up ordering more postcards over the weekend. I couldn't help myself. I had to order James (my husband) a book for school from so I ordered a book of postcards for myself too. That was on Saturday. On Sunday, I was browsing sites looking for cute cat cards and Christmas cards and ended up going on I've ordered there before and the cards are fantastic quality, but are super expensive so I try not to order from there unless I don't have a choice. Well.... Yeah, I ended up ordering some Christmas postcards and some cat postcards. I couldn't help myself. There are more I want to order, but I am going to try and hold off until next month. They should be shipping my postcards in the next day or so. I'm excited... and of course I want to buy more!

Yesterday, I came home to six new postcards so that was nice after a long day at school. One of them was a cute Christmas postcard that I will have to post in here after I scan it in.

I love postcards and postcrossing!

Favorites day!

I'm now able to send 15 postcards at a time which is awesome. Of course waiting for them to get registered can still be frustrating! I'm trying not to buy anymore postcards because I have so many as it is. I want to buy some Christmas/holiday postcards to send out during December. I'll hopefully have the money to do it in November.

I've received some awesome official postcards and here are some of my favorites!

US-843203 Lewis and Clark on the Lower Columbia River, 1905. This will be going in my private collection.

IT-102531 My first Coca-Cola postcard! Yay!

CA-125352 This was sent to me by another mother and it was her first postcrossing postcard sent out.

NL-434868 My first rubber ducky postcard (also my favorite color, dark pink!) and it was also her first postcrossing postcard sent out.

FI-906454 I just thought this was simple and beautiful.

IS-9720 My first postcard from Iceland. So beautiful. Would love to go someday.
