(I have restarted this swap series with the permission of former coordinator, lostinavalon. I'm leaving her wording up for now.)

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 (including the country!) on the right hand side of the card. Put the title of the swap ("Adventures of the Traveling Postcard") and your screen name 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!)


Hang on to the postcard(s) that you receive in each round. 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.

Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps completed) 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 postcards back. So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul. I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile and will ban anyone that I feel like. Thanks and happy swapping!

Please don't send more than 3 cards per round.

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled unless instructed otherwise. CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT SENDING YOUR PARTNER'S CARD BACK TO THEM AS PART OF THE SWAP ROUND YOU'RE ON.

ALSO: Do not destroy, bend, write on the front of, or ANYTHING else that destroys the integrity of the postcard. Treat the postcard how you would want yours treated.

Additionally: If you stop swapping for more than three rounds, your name will be placed on the "Send Back To" list and your card will be sent back to you if it's still in rotation.

And if you decide to stop the swap, please contact me so you can send your received cards to me and I can keep them in the rotation.

I was wondering if anyone has any of my cards?

3goldkeys 08/19/2015 #

@bookworm66 - I have one of your cards, received in round 44. I missed the sign up deadline for round 45. It is a farm/tractor scenery. I'll be the tenth person to sign it and there might be room to get 3 or 4 more sigs after mine.

I also will be passing along a pc belonging to Theresa Mather (starfish). I'll be the 12th person to sign. There may be room for 2-3 more signatures.

Also, passing along Georgia Hall (pink/gold butterflies). I'll be the sixth person to sign. There is room for many, many, more signatures.

@mdkrouwel Thank you for taking this over. So glad this swap is carrying on (even though my cards seem to have disappeared into the ether somewhere).

I somehow missed round 45 (the first one since R1 and am ever I'm so sorry about it )- just checked again, and it's too late to sign up. Will be forwarding Catalina Groth (Caddi) (lots of traveling to do) and Nana Treadwell (flying fox) (room for only 1 more stop after mine) in this round.

Caddi 08/20/2015 #

@inthewild - thanks for passing my postcard along!

London13 08/20/2015 #

I too was wondering if anyone has any of my cards. It would be Brooke Prislupsky for return address. I haven't heard from any since I started this swap.

flowerchild 08/22/2015 #

Does anyone have or have seen my cards from R12 and R22??? I also have one from R37 that I hope is traveling and one from R45 that I hope will be moving on. If you are hosting my PC in your home thank you!

ElaCaiu 08/22/2015 #

I have a card belonging to Deeno Moss (R28) that I will be sending along.

Because I wasn't sure if this swap was being continued, all three of @Rumbar 's cards went to my partner for R45.

palmettogirl727 08/23/2015 #

If anyone sees my PC, please send it home. I'm not in the swap anymore. Thanks, Julie

Thank you @mcovey That's a relief as I have never gotten any other postcard return to me, hope this one will...

abshanghai 08/24/2015 #

By the way, I have Tracy Johnson's PC sent off for R45.

thisismeAXiD 08/26/2015 #

I haven't received my PCs from the last round yet...

Deeno1105 08/26/2015 #

@clstew ....I sent your PC to British Columbia Canada for R45.

Coss 08/26/2015 #

@mdkrouwel I agree with the others- Thanks for continuing this swap.

I will be forwarding the following cards:
@fykka (Fika) from Round 11
@newrule (Nurul) from Round 35
@lostinavalon (sarah) from Round 36

julebear 08/27/2015 #

Please send my PCs home. I'm not long in the swap. Thanks! Julie Smith aka julebear

Deeno1105 08/28/2015 #

@ElaCaiu Thanks for letting me know my card is still traveling. I love this swap and have gotten several sent home. It's really fun to see where it gets to go. Too bad I don't get to go with it.

CalyD 09/ 2/2015 #

Thanks for continuing this swap! I had just gotten into it and really enjoy it. However if you host the next one could you please put more time on Send out Date? I still have not received my card from Round #45


StarMouse 09/11/2015 #

Thanks so much for taking over this swap!

inthewild 09/12/2015 #

Thanks for 'send' reminder message - sent mine off last weekend 4/5 Sept and did not mark as such. It should be well on its way at this time......
