Wouldn't it be great to send a postcard and see where it had been all around the world? Then get it returned back to you after its adventures were over? Let's do it!


Choose a card. A card that you think people would enjoy seeing (however, PLEASE DO NOT USE EXTRA LARGE POSTCARDS THAT WILL REQUIRE EXTRA POSTAGE!). Put your name and address on the right hand side of the card. Put the title of the swap ("Adventures of the Traveling Postcard") at the top of the left hand side. PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE and send it off to your partner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just write your name, username, city, state/country, on the left hand side of the postcard you received in the previous round. Put it in an envelope and send it to your partner! (DO NOT WRITE YOUR ENTIRE ADDRESS ON THE POSTCARD - THIS TAKES UP TOO MUCH SPACE!)


We will have another round as soon as everyone has clicked "Sent" in the previous round. (Sign up when you receive yours from the previous round, start another one in rotation, or contact me, as I may have a postcard that needs to be put back into rotation as well!) When the left side of the postcard is filled up with the names and cities of those that have received the postcard, the last person will stamp your actual postcard and send it back to you.

Only join if you are awesome and a non-flaker. Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps - although if you have already been in the swap, you will be allowed in even if you don't have 50) and I will ban if I feel that you may be a questionable swapper. I want to do my best to ensure that everyone receives their postcard back! So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul, K? I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile. Thanks and happy swapping!

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled!

Mimi7 05/19/2013 #

vixen 05/19/2013 #

I have Lidia Ruiz Alonzo's card to send out.

AnnieMaxine 05/19/2013 #

Liz Moore is @lizmoore01

siouxx05 05/19/2013 #

@lizmoore01 won't be joining any swaps, she is suspended still.. Send her card home..

Skron11 05/19/2013 #

I have Bootses'.

asmom 05/19/2013 #

I'm still waiting for the postcard from round 8, hope it shows up..

mcovey 05/20/2013 #

@siouxx05 - I have one I want to start any way , we have a new state map card and I would love to have it my collection one day

mcovey 05/20/2013 #

she was one the ones that didn;t read the rules and it is a homemade post card so it would cost about $2 to send it on any ways so I am not looking forward in sending it any ways

coolbeans 05/20/2013 #

I am sending at Danusha J do not know swap name. we should be writing down our swap names right ? and dates

Happycrazylion 05/20/2013 #

I have sharla Keon's postcard

momoeight 05/20/2013 #

Has anybody gotten their filled in original card sent back to them yet? I have not. I did get one of mine sent to me but it was not filled in yet. It only had like 4 lines on it so far. And I have been in since the beginning. I am beginning to think that a lot of people don't understand the rules or something.

AnnieMaxine 05/20/2013 #

I know that @EmilyT received hers and I received mine.

AnnieMaxine 05/20/2013 #

Just remember that postcards dont necessarily get sent out every round. If it is sent overseas, it may take more than 4 weeks to reach its destination, also if someone doesnt sign up for the round, that will delay a postcard. incidentally, my postcard never left the country so it went out in every round.

latentsmile 05/20/2013 #

:'( I started this swap in R7 and my partner has deleted their account. I am going to guess I will never see that PC again, and it was one of my favorites. -_- I'll be including a new PC in this round for myself.

maranda222 05/20/2013 #

I have Dominic Kirby's card and am the 6th person to sign it : )

AnnieMaxine 05/20/2013 #

@latentsmile that's not necessarily true. Some of the folks have sent me the postcards they have had in their possession. I will keep you posted on if I get ahold of yours.

violinpopstar 05/20/2013 #

@AnnieMaxine banned me from joining this swap without even messaging me first. I felt a bit offended. She could've told me nicely and I could've dropped from this swap at once.

Thanks anyway.

AnnieMaxine 05/20/2013 #

Yes I did. You did not meet the criteria of the swap. If I had to go through and message all the people that signed up that didnt meet the criteria, I would be spending a week waiting to make sure that the people that I messaged would drop on their own. Banning is not personal or a mean thing to do...its how we let folks know they are not allowed in the swap...especially if they signed up without meeting the criteria.

inkedwithelegance 05/20/2013 #

Have not gotten a card to send off yet from round 8.. I will sign up if I get one in.. I know mine reached the first destination so I am looking forward to it getting sent to another =o)

AZmom875 05/20/2013 #

I have 2 postcards because RD 7s card did not arrive in time for me to mail it out for Round 8. So I have 1. S? Lorent of Belgium It started in round 4. I dont see a swap-bot nick name. oh and it is a dang cute card. There is room for maybe 2 more and then it will be back to the sender.

  1. from Sheri Downer of FL, I have one from round 7, with 2 other signers so that must have started in round 5. It is a cherry blossom DC Postcard. Probably room for 4 or 5 more.
violinpopstar 05/20/2013 #

@AnnieMaxine OK.. I understand now... I'm sorry it's just my first time to get banned and I thought it will reflect on my profile negatively, and before I joined a swap that I wasn't allowed to but the coordinator messaged me first so I dropped. But if that's the case, then it's fine. :)

EmilyT 05/21/2013 #

This round I will send out Lucine's from the Netherlands, next round I will send Lynnette's from Iowa, and the following I will send out Stephanie's from Oregon. Eventually I will receive a card that is ready to be sent home so I can reduce the stack :)

siouxx05 05/21/2013 #

I would like to know who has any of my cards.. I have moved house and am worried they won't make it back to me.. Please, if it is ready to send home, check the address first..! :)

AnnieMaxine 05/21/2013 #

@EmilyT you can send two or three out at a time. It will be the same postage and it's OK if they travel together!

rsilvers 05/21/2013 #

I think my first card that got sent out in R1 was lost somewhere :(

Deeno1105 05/21/2013 #

@Melanie R. in Germany, I have your card which will have two names after this round. (Swap bot name looks like it was maybe added by 1st signer - @lilmaja . PC has a hamster on it)

pne 05/21/2013 #

@AZmom875 Sandrine Lorent of Belgium? I think she's @LunaEtLesEtoiles currently partially suspended with 14 1's. And according to this thread she's a double profiler (she was @Chobbits the first time around).

And I now have @texasjenn 's postcard ready to start its journey!

AnnieMaxine 05/21/2013 #

@AZmom875 @pne is right...she is suspended. Please do not waste your time sending her postcard. Put another one of your own to put into rotation or let me send you one. You can toss hers directly in the trash or send it back to her with a big "F-You" on the back. LOL I'm only half joking...

wadesay 05/21/2013 #

I'm still waiting for the postcard from R8. hope it will come soon.

SFreer 05/21/2013 #

I got my postcard back today!! Its been to California, Malaysia, Spain, New York, UK, India, Wisconsin and now its home! very fun! Still waiting however, for my card from round 8 so that I can send it on in this round. I may send out another of my own as well! :)

CajunLady 05/21/2013 #

Does anyone have my card?

asmom 05/21/2013 #

AZmom875- I hope you don't throw the post card away, If it's the one with the Yoshi on it from the tree show, it is very cute, I had it and sent it on.

asmom 05/21/2013 #

I got my card from R8 today, It belongs to Sue S of Morphettville in Australia

pne 05/22/2013 #

How awesome @SFreer !

coolbeans 05/22/2013 #

when we get our postcards back can you please leave in a ENVELOPE i would like mine to stay clean if you do not mind please we are know how the mail is

Thanks Rose

AnnieMaxine 05/22/2013 #

@coolbeans since in the swap description it says to stamp it and send it back to the original owner, there is no guarantee that yours will get sent back to you in an envelope. You could have noted it on your pc, but otherwise folks may not read these comments, so they may not be aware of the request.

crmc 05/22/2013 #

I'll be the third name on Evette Ogden's card when I send it out this round.

BluePoppy 05/22/2013 #

I have Bgailk's pc with me!

AnnieMaxine 05/22/2013 #

@crmc Evette Ogden is no longer a participant in this swap. You can stamp it and send it back to her and I can send you a different one to put in rotation! Would that be OK with you?

Jan218 05/23/2013 #

I am sending Jessica Gazin's home!

EmilyT 05/23/2013 #

I'll send 2 together this round and 2 the next. That way someone doesn't have to spend postage on all 3 to send back. They are all pretty new and may finish around the same round.

AZmom875 05/23/2013 #

Oh that is too bad about the Sandrine being a double profiler and being suspended on both accounts, I am sure she will crop up again in Belgium. I will take the card out of rotation and add one of mine, so it can get lost. HAHHAHAHHAHA!

flowerchild 05/24/2013 #

these swaps have teased me long enough...jumping in! Got my PC ready to travel:)

inkedwithelegance 05/24/2013 #

Just got Melanie Roscher's card will be sending that one out in this round =o)

user6937 05/24/2013 #

I've been in these swaps since the beginning and have never got my pc back. Is it still on it's rounds? If anyone sees it, please send it home! What do we do if we suspect our original card is AWOL? Send another one out? Sandra Dowkes, Calgary

I have Emily Rogers card (from FL).

Mimi7 05/24/2013 #

There were 36 of us in round 1 of the traveling postcard, I sent my very first one out on Nov.7, 2012. I have not received mine back. I am curious to know how many of us out of the original 36 have received theirs back?? It would be interesting to know. Thanks

Mimi7 05/24/2013 #

If anyone sees my original one, please send it home thanks

Happycrazylion 05/24/2013 #

I was a round 1 swapper and haven't gotten mine home yet either. :) hope my pc is enjoying its travels. :)

FundyGirl 05/24/2013 #

I haven't seen mine yet either, but I'm sure one day it will find it's way back to me. I currently have Marcelle Daniels's card and will be sending it on this round. :)

rsilvers 05/25/2013 #

Maybe the folks who got our R1 postcards have really teeny tiny handwriting, that's why they're still out there LOL

I'll be sending out the postcard started by Karla C, of Metter, GA in this round.

user6937 05/25/2013 #

I just counted the number of people on Emily Roger's pc and this will be her pc's 9th round, so she's an original rounder, too. So, I have hope! Yay for teeny, tiny hand-writers! :)

user6937 05/25/2013 #

There's still room on it, Emily, so it's not coming home yet!

AnnieMaxine 05/25/2013 #

As I stated above, some postcards may not go out in every round. For instance, I have a few postcards in my possession I haven't been able to get out into rotation the last round...and if the mail is going overseas, it may not reach the person in time for the next round.

I do my best to keep everything moving and harp on those that haven't sent theirs out...but, like all swaps, it is a gamble. I try to allow good, consistent swappers only into the swaps...but even good swappers occasionally fall off the face of the earth. This series has been quite the learning experience...and, let me tell you, once this swap dies off and people are no longer interested...I will NEVER EVER do anything like it again! LOL

Happycrazylion 05/25/2013 #

You are doing a fantastic job @AnnieMaxine thank you for keeping this swap going! :)

Beckster 05/25/2013 #

I have Katherine Biasbas PC going out this round.

Mimi7 05/25/2013 #

You are doing a WONDERFUL job AnnieMaxine, I was just curious but now I know some people write really small and they are going internationally, It will be fun to see where all our postcards have travelled. Thanks so much for taking on the enormous job of hosting this wonderful swap, AnnieMaxine! :) :)

joyhouse5 05/26/2013 #

Oh this swap may never DIE off, you will be stuck with us til round 202. BVWHAHAHAHHAHAH!!

Deeno1105 05/26/2013 #

Does anyone have my card?

AnnieMaxine 05/26/2013 #

@joyhouse5 that's what I'm afraid of!!! LOL

fruitbat5150 05/27/2013 #

I have the card of Katherine Biasbas (no user name given), of Philippines.

supacarol 05/27/2013 #

I have been in this swap since round 1, I still wonder where my first postcard is, but since then I have had to start 3 more postcards as I just don't get them in time, I am unsure of whether to join this round as my card from the previous round still hasn't shown up!

supacarol 05/27/2013 #

anniemaxine, is it possible to send me some of your extra postcards so at least I can send something on time to my partners, without having to start a new postcard?

supacarol 05/27/2013 #

Oh, I just checked, my partner for round 8 (loren77).has a deleted account, so I probably wont get one from her, and I am still waiting on the postcard from round 7 to arrive....

megalynn 05/27/2013 #

This sounds amazing! I don't think I meet the criteria though. Hope everyone enjoys it! :)

EmilyT 05/27/2013 #

@mimi7 I think the card I received back is the one I sent out in round 1. I had 2 of my cards in, but I don't remember which was sent first

Bluegirl 05/28/2013 #

I have Susanne Aulig's postcard from Germany (Round 8).

inthewild 05/29/2013 #

I've not received R8 but there are still a few days; hope it will land in time for R9. Is my p.c. still out there somewhere?

Deeno1105 05/29/2013 #

Still wondering if anyone has my card? Anyone?

Vickyen 05/29/2013 #

I have Chanbele Goss-Jones card from Wales (not sure what her swap name is) - it has made it to three folks and lots of room to keep mailing - yipppee! So I should get rated for the one I sent - right? This will be fun to see how it goes! Thanks for hosting! ;)

BlackRainbow 05/30/2013 #

I just received Georgie Freestone from UK yesterday & joining round 9 :)

wadesay 05/30/2013 #

I just received Kelly Ray's postcard. I'm its 3rd stop. and this is the first time for the postcard to fly outside USA :D.

magicinker 05/30/2013 #

WOW, I want to join but it seems ALOT of PC's are lost / missing? talk me into this !

AnnieMaxine 05/31/2013 #

If anyone has to talk you into it. Don't join. Thanks. :-/

magicinker 05/31/2013 #

Good point Annie - So i won't !

mcovey 05/31/2013 #

we all take chances when we do any swap , and we have to think others are good or we would never try . In this swap what are you loosing maybe 50 cent and you could gain alot of new friends if you choose .

mcovey 05/31/2013 #

Oh I forgot , I am sending out my 2nd this round since I have someone that is missing in action and suspended

twobluecrows 05/31/2013 #

@magicinker I'll twist your virtual arm--I'm joining, so join with me! It will be fine, even if a few go missing, the coolness of getting a card back (you can send out new ones each round if you want to with your others) will make up for it!

twobluecrows 05/31/2013 #

Besides...the more good swappers join, the fewer flakes happen! ;)

EmilyT 06/ 1/2013 #

sorry for so many posts but this round I am sending out 2 cards: Lucine V. from the Netherlands and Stephanie M. from OR.

spinjenny 06/ 1/2013 #

KarlaKC 06/ 6/2013 #

Am sending @Yosemite Charlotte Huntley's out.

I have Kelly Haag"s and I am sending it out tomorrow.

Deeno1105 06/13/2013 #

Has anyone seen my card? I haven't heard about it and I'm worried it may be caught in customs or something. It's never travelled alone before. I've asked before, but so far it is MIA.

suesuzieq 06/18/2013 #

Just received newrule's card from Malaysia. It was started in R6.

latentsmile 06/24/2013 #

Received @lorenmarie77 's and @missyhope 's
