Buying more postcards... what else am I going to do with my money?

I can't resist going to to see if they have any sales because of course if they have sales, I'll be tempted to buy more postcards. Are they having a sale? Yes. 50% off postcards. Could I resist? NOPE. I ordered 10 different designs, four of which were ones that I had uploaded. Some of the ones I designed I'll send to pen friends, some I'll use as official postcards. It'll be interesting to see how they are when I get them. I'm tempted to buy more since it's such a great deal and the sale ends on Thursday.

Speaking of my pen friends, I think I need to buy some postcards specifically for them. I hate using the cards I bought for official postcards to send to them. I know it probably sounds stupid, but I want separate postcards for officials and for my pen friends. I'll probably start working on that next month when I can hit some stores again.

Hopefully tomorrow I will have the energy to post some of the postcards I've received for my private collection.

Another long delay...

Again, I got busy with life. It's been a whirl of snow storms, power failures, holidays, sickness and school finals, but now finally, the week of Christmas, I am finally able to update in here!

I've made some lovely pen pals. Some through the forum and some have contacted me directly on postcrossing. Yay! I've already received lots of lovely postcards and regular cards so that's nice. Hopefully I'll make some lasting friendships.

Here are some of my more recent favorite postcards:

BY-110003 Lovely winter scene and the postcard has glitter on it.

FI-957488 Can't go wrong with Santas on motorcycles!

JP-139472 This is just so cute and totally made my day when I got it!

NL-510071 It has a recipe on the back in Dutch, but is a super cute postcard.

RU-268190 The user said it's an advertisement postcard, but the seagull with a Santa cap on its head is too funny.

That's all for now. I'll have more to post soon!
