I love you this much!

This T-Rex humor is adorable, Leah! The way you’ve drawn them is so cute!

It’s so funny how their hands are really small, and it makes it even funnier when I imagine them hugging. That would be such an awkward hug :3

Thank you so much!

Neat & Keen – The Great Crane Giveaway

I received something very unusual. It was a brown envelope and when I opened it a brochure came out of it and The Great Crane Postcard. I honestly don’t remember how I applied for this, or how it came to me, but I am so glad it did!

The 5 x 7 inch origami crane is a 3-color silkscreen print signed, numbered, and printed by hand at Neat & Keen Studios by John Everett Morton in DeKalb, IL. While 1000 is quite a bit for a limited edition print, it relates to the Japanese tradition of folding 1000 origami cranes in return for good luck or one wish granted.

Food postcard from Germany

wp-1457468392218.jpg

One of the reasons I love postcrossing is that I get food πŸ˜€

DE-5009015 , and I am the lucky girl to get this unfortunately non-eatable card.

It’s all written in German, front, back, everywhere, and I love it.

I also adore the stamp. Haven’t received one like that before!

THANK YOU !

Production of ceramics – Singapore, and how much power a postcard can have

wp-1457468386769.jpg

One of my favorite postcards. Not because it’s from reddit. Or because it’s large. It is from Singapore, from /u/duosharp, but the fact that makes her special is how the artist showed the production of ceramics in a single picture.

Look at this everyday life. Isn’t it amazing? When you drink tea and sit in your comfortable chair at home, next to the fireplace, do you think who made those tea pots and ceramic tools? No, I haven’t though about it, either. But now I did. This postcard had the power to make me see how much effort people put in stuff everyday. Not only to make a tea pot, but to make a lot more stuff, touchable and untouchable, that we don’t even realize.

It made me think that today, I drove my sister to her handball practice, and it doesn’t mean anything, not to me, not to her, but if that didn’t happen, she would have missed practice. If the people didn’t make the tea pot, maybe we wouldn’t have been drinking tea today, eh?

Duosharp, thank you for opening my eyes with a single postcard. Each postcard has such power. We only need to see it πŸ˜‰

If you never try, you’ll never know

Hello guys. I hope you’re doing fine.
I always want to try new stuff. And I have tried many new stuff this period.

It’s the unknown that makes me curious, and I want to learn it all. One of the things that made me curious was painting with watercolors. Since I do handmade postcards, I tried to make some handmade watercolor postcards, and I threw so many paper, because it wasn’t good, and I kept some, not worth taking a picture of, and then I made this one, which I really adore. It seems watercolor postcards will be my new favourite stuff to make.Β  πŸ˜€

I still have a lot more work to do and upgrade my skills, especially with watercolors, but I am determined to do it. What do you guys think about this?
