Holding 6_72

I’ve been printing little cards of my most recent pictures. It’s great to hold them all in my hands, little collections. There’s something comforting about them. I only have a cheap old printer at the moment, so they are not perfect, but they are lovely to hold.

I had a small idea that it might be fun to post some of these to different people, and also to leave some about out in the world for strangers to pick up and hopefully take home and/or share.

The idea would be that I would have details on the back stating that this is a postcard to share or keep, and to ask the recipient to let me know that they have it in some way, maybe take a photograph of it when it arrives, and email that to me, so that I can take account of my cards travels..then if that person would like to send it to someone else, as a gift, for them to photograph too, it would keep them on their journey.

I would then post these travelling card pictures on a blog page.

Do you like this idea? Would you like me to send you one? If so, leave me your details on my contact form, I would love to send you a picture and watch it travel!

(p.s. I won’t tell you when I am about to send it, so it would be a surprise..:) )

  1. This is a briliant idea! I adore random acts of art – sharing work anonymously is one of the best ways to make the world a better place as far as I can see. The notion of making connections so simply and directly with people who respond to your work is great – and such a delight to get the responses! I’m in for sure!

    1. Oh fantastic! I just loved the idea of it, I’m so glad you agree – let me know where I can send it to you and it will be flying through the air very soon! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh I’m sure it wouldn’t! They would be very happy to sit quietly in a corner after their long journey I’m sure πŸ™‚

    1. Patti, thanks – I just love to post things to people, and I like that this is for no other reason, just for the pleasure of sharing something and watching it travel to someone, thinking of them smiling when they open it – It genuinely makes me very excited! πŸ™‚

    1. Fantastic – a little card will be on its way! I love this, they are travelling worldwide! Very much hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

    1. I’m so glad that you like this idea too – I’m really sorry though but something happened to the mail that you sent and so I have lost your address – would you mind sending again? I’d love to send a card to you! πŸ™‚

  2. This is great idea, made me so excited now… Can it be possible to send me too… πŸ™‚ But I can’t send it to anyone because I would like to keep your postcard/your amazing heart/creative mind with me, with my life running… Your collaboration works with dear Elena once made me so excited and now your idea… your creative postcards… Thank you, for what you made me live/feel at my humble (desk) world today…. Blessing and Happiness, love, nia

    1. Nia, I’m so touched by your comments, thankyou. It may be possible to send a card, but I don’t have any left at the moment. I will let you know when I do however..

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love this idea. are you sending them out? Have you got cards in return? I like the idea of the old printer. I see you have some of my favorite people following your blog.I’d better check your out πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Carla – I have sent lots out now, and have also received some beautiful ones in return, which was a great surprise, and so inspiring to make connections and to see work in the flesh that I have only seen online. ! I will do a follow up post on these at some point.
