National Postcard Week

So, did you know that this week is National Postcard Week?  It is True.  You can follow this glorious event on Twitter with #NationalPostcardWeek .  I myself was not aware of the significance of this week until I happened to see a swap listed on Swap-bot.com for this very occasion.  I was so excited when the coordinator agreed to do a private swap with me since I am not a rated swapper. As I mentioned in an earlier post regarding Swap-bot, I am still a Newb with regard to the swapping world.  However, my kind coordinator, druideye, decided to do a private swap with me, AND she is going to provide me with my first rating!  Yes, I will no longer be considered a Newb!

So, the swap consists of sending 1 postcard a day for 5 consecutive days, Monday - Friday to one partner.  How easy is that, right?!  And the best part is my P.O. Box is getting ready to receive 5 postcards!  Super exciting!  I will begin posting photos of cards sent (and received) each day beginning this Thursday.  I want to give my postcards a chance to reach their final destination before I start posting them.  For me, half the fun of receiving postcards and letters is the surprise of what they look like - what type of stationery was used, which postage stamps did the sender  choose, how were they addressed?  Sorry, that's the way paperholics think.  So, I don't want to spoil the surprise by posting too soon should my swap partner visit this blog.  However, if you are curious about my personal choices with regard to postcards sent, be sure to check back this Thursday.  

Until then, purchase some postcards, mail a few in honor of National Postcard Week, and post a photo on Twitter with #NationalPostcardWeek - I would love to see YOUR choices!  If you would like to send me a postcard, my address is listed below.  My P.O. Box and I would appreciate your postal support.

About Me

My photo
VA, United States
Christopher Scott is a pen name under which my paper concoctions are created. My pen is a compilation of family names and recognizes those that endure the chaos surrounding my paper obession. During childhood many hours were spent cutting, pasting,and creating merely for personal enjoyment. College consisted of much more of the same as I cut, pasted, and created my way through Architecture School. Now, many years later my paper addiction ensues. Hence, Christopher Scott (a.k.a. paperholic)
