Welcome to the Words of Inspiration Postcard Swap Information PageReceiving art in the mail makes me smile every single time it happens. I also love how so many of the cards I get include quotes in the notes or messages. Since we're writing, normally, to folks we don't yet know, a lot of people include a quote or other sentiment. I want to take that one step further in my first hosted Postcard Swap.
The "Words of Inspiration" swap is open for registration now! The only rules for the art you create:
- It needs to feature a quote in the art...add it to a photograph, work it in with mixed media, tangle around the words, etc. Use any quote that inspires you.
- It needs to fit on a postcard.
Registration is open now. You should be able to sign up using the form below. If that doesn't work, you can link to the form here. I'll be posting more ideas and samples here on my blog between now and the end of October. If you'd like to see those updates, now would be a good time to subscribe to my blog. If you'd like to see a couple of simple ideas now, check out this post and this post.
If you don't want to sign up now, you can pop back by anytime between now and October 15.
