The Benevolent Postcard Society
I made it in just under the deadline to participate in The Benevolent Postcard Society, "a postcard exchange and art project in one." Their blog is quite well-organized, and you can find out all about it there. Basically you get assigned one person to whom to send a postcard on the first of each month, from September 2009 to September 2010. Above is my first postcard, September to Russia. Of course the day after I sent it, I was emailed that the poor Russian gal forgot to include her zip code, so my fingers are crossed that it made it to her in St. Petersburg without her zip code.
I sent a lovely mill view from Maxfield Parrish, an artist whose work I enjoy.
For October, I got a UK address, and made a postcard out of half of a card. On this side, I thought I was pretty clever for writing my blog address alongside the lady's skirt.
Here, an autumn scene prevails. It feels like that here now!
