Today saw the postbox round the corner filled with a slightly different style of post, because I sent off my postcards to the five lovely ladies who are in my group for Sunny Sweet Pea's 2014 Postcard Swap.
I had such fun flicking through boxes of vintage postcards at my local antique shop and think I found a relevant postcard for each recipient. Well, as relevant as it can be when you're writing to a stranger!
There is something quite liberating about hand-writing a message to someone I don't know at all, and the process of constructing each card by hand had a therapeutic feel to it. It makes you slow down, take time to think and reflect.
The benefits of modern communication are hard to argue with, but one day a year dedicated to snail mail certainly does wonders for the soul.
I hope the bloggers receiving these like them, and a big thanks goes to Sunny Sweet Pea for organising it all.
