Postcard Swap

Dear Liza,

I love finding new ways to use art! I make cards and gifts for friends and family and pretties for myself. And now, Ruth Inman has started a postcard swap.

This is a thing where folks volunteer to make a postcard to send to a stranger. The stranger makes one, and you swap. I like this idea for so many reasons.

I get more things to make (always good). I get inspired to try new things. I get to know other artsy people and learn from them, even if they live far away.

Since I am learning about mixed media right now, my postcards are a layers of acrylic paint and collage. Since they are for the month of February, they are red and have hearts.

But, like any handmade thing, they are a little different.

I hope the person who gets my postcard enjoys getting it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Love,

Grandma Judy
