Today I got an email from a lady in Finland asking if I'd ever gotten her postcard. She sent it 30 days ago. I wonder if my mail carrier delivered it to the wrong apartment, because two or three times now, a postcrossing card mysterious comes through my mail slot an hour or two after the postal carrier has come and gone. The postcards easily get stuck in between the pages of grocery store flyers. If the person just pitched the ad, the card would have gone with it.
Or in one of my hair brained moments I may have forgotten to register one. As a back up system, I've started putting a little mark on each card I register.


Today I got a fantastic card from Portugal with beautiful bird postage stamps. from Manuel.
Thanks Manuel.

The Spirit of Inspiration

I am falling behind on my blog, so if I skipped your card, please forgive me. I got this beautiful collage card from Estonia recently. Today I got another card from Finland with a sunset on it.

I also bought new cards to send when I visited San Pedro Ports O' Call today.

Four new arrivals.

The top two cards are from Finland. There sure are a lot of Finnish people on postcrossing...more than in the entire U.S.
The Cairns card is from Australia and the woman is from Portugal.
Thanks everyone.

More the merrier

I just got 15 new postcards during my trip to Las Vegas. I can't wait to send them out to future postcrossing pals.

The back view.

The back of Willeke's card.

The First Card

This one threw me. Since it was a card, not a postcard, I didn't realize it was from postcrossing. So I didn't log it in until I'd already had it maybe 4 days. It's from Willeke from the Netherlands. This is the front. Thanks Willeke. If you'd like to leave a link to your blog please do. I don't like to give things out without permission.

My first received POSTCARD. Woo hoo!

I just got my first official postcrossing postcard as I was creating this blog. How's that for synchronicity. It's from Germany. And it's beautiful. I'll try to photograph it with my digital camera and post it.
From Dorothee is Germany.
The card says Tanz der Gefuhle! Can anyone translate?

What is Postcrossing

Postcrossing is a way to hook up with people around the world in a postcard exchange. To join in, go to and get on board. It is also helpful to join because they have some postcrossing groups where you can post handmade cards you've sent or recieved, making it even more fun.
