ideas on a postcard
Thank you for your very enthusiastic response to yesterday's rainy day postcard shout out! Hurrah! In eight hours, I had sixty five requests for postcards, and decided to close entries at that point [out of fear for both my hand and my bank balance].
So, sixty five postcards later... They have been posted and are whizzing their way out to you all [in ten different countries!].
At some point in the future, when my hand has recovered, I'll do this again. It was fun! x
