The Benevolent Postcard Society

Hello and Happy Monday!

If you'll notice on the lower right of my blog page,
I have this cute logo:

I'm part of this exclusive group where
we send and receive a postcard every month.

Isn't that a treat?
Amidst all the bills & junk mail in my mailbox,
there will be a postcard lurking there somewhere.
From someone I don't even know!
That always makes me smile.

We started doing this in September 2009
and will continue until September this year.

I relied on my postcard stash, which I've accumulated
through my travels.

But when I saw this flickr photo stream showing
the society's postcards, I thought this
was a great opportunity for some
blah to TADA!

Remember my post a few months back
where I re-purposed an old pair of jeans?

Well, I saved the denim scraps.

I trimmed it, decorated it & attached it to
cardboard using hot glue.

Tada! Instant postcard!

I had enough fabric to make another one.

See you tomorrow!
