January 3, 2009

Today was very nice. I walked to the post office to mail off my very first Swap-Bot packages (and seven postcards)! The walk to the post office is fairly pleasant and I am trying to work up the nerve to not care what people think of me and just take some pictures on the way. Since I'm not that brave yet though...on with what was sent:

I didn't think y'all would be interested in pictures of the contents of the boxes, so I skipped that. Only thing I scanned in was the front of the card I tucked into one of the packages:
Wolfidy waits for the mail.

Is not my best work, but I thought it would be nice to add a little something in with the packages. I was going to make one for the other package too, but when I looked at her profile again it said "NO HANDMADE CARDS!!" and that made me sad. So I just wrote her a little note.

No outgoing postcard scans today, there were too many and I woke up too late and didn't have time to think about it before leaving for the post office.

The only thing to come in the mail for me today was a postcard, though:
This one is from Karen and was for the Any Kind of Postcard Swap on Swap-Bot. I think it's pretty cool. I've never been on a real train before, unless you count the ones at Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm. I'm hoping to go one one this summer though. When I go, I'll be sure to buy lots of postcards!


  1. I remember the time they made us do penpal letters in primary/elementary school. That all became unnecessary when the internet came along. I still have a weird fascination though for stamps. I used to collect them, but our local post office hides them...

  2. Dude, stamps are available 24/7 through

    Also, you will se a lot of cool stamps if you join you'll get postcards from all over the world!

  3. such a cool train card!!! I love trains, and i can say ive travelled by one many times so far...i think its an addiction i got from my dad.
    Once i brought him train postcards but i guess he never really freaked out for them...this reminds me i should look for them and put them in my collection...with him, they will only catch dust....if he has any idea where they are in the first place....
