We love to do exchanges, support our team and do fun things that keep us creating. ?We just finished up a postcard challenge that let us send postcards?around?the world. ?It was fun to see them flying around, posts of crew members sending them, receiving them and enjoying a surprise in?the mail. ?Postcards do not need an envelope, just a simple stamp and address and off they go. ?Barb started this fun?challenge and the rest is history. ?Barb Housnerrustic pillow covers, a member of “;the Crew”; loves to do Postcard Exchanges and shares with us to two postcards she created. ?If you have not done an crafty exchange before, maybe this is the one?for you. ?

“;I have been designing postcards for exchanges and I wanted to use the Tattered Angels paints on some postcards. Postcards are something different to send to friends and family and the challenge is to keep them flat so they can go through the mail. Of course, you always pray they will make it in one piece.”;
