PLEASE NOTE: Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps completed). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND:

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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IF YOU PARTICIPATED IN THE PREVIOUS ROUND(S):

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 each month. 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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IMPORTANT:

1.) Please don't send more than 3 cards per round. Hang on to the extra ones and send them in following rounds. If you have too many, please contact me.

2.) Before sending out the cards to the next person, do check if the cards belongs to someone who is still participating. If they are not, please contact me about it.

3.) 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 rotation.

4.) 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.

5.) 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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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!

Sending on : tyracrafty & Caddi

janeengland 06/21/2017 #

I have just come to sign some cards I received in last round and I have noticed my last partner as not even bothered to sign the cards.

EmilyT 06/21/2017 #

@janeengland you would send your pc back out so it can continue being signed. As far as the other issue, I would pm your partner and let them know-maybe they just plain forgot. Maybe you could write their info on the pc for them? Just an opinion, but that is probably how I'd proceed if I was in that situation.

janeengland 06/22/2017 #

Thank you EmilyT i have took your advise and emailed my partner.

Apelser 06/25/2017 #

mdkrouwel 06/26/2017 #

IMPORTANT: I am on holiday from end of July till end of August. That is why there is a 2 month period of time in between round 68 and round 69. I already started this swap in case I might forget to start a new one. ;-) You can find it here:


piratejimbob87 06/29/2017 #

Hi I'd like to join this but just had a question as a first timer, what happens if I don't receive one in the first round to send in the next? I know there's a 2 month wait, but just in case. And what do you do about ratings? Thanks!

widelo123 06/30/2017 #

I am so happy, I finally received one of my postcards back. Wow! Thrilled with all the places it went. Finally sent home from the Ceska Republika.

ReLigt 07/ 4/2017 #

For @piratejimbob87 - I've been doing this swap for about 9 months (?) and I have always received a card in time. If you haven't received one by the sign up deadline, you could drop from that month's round, contact the organizer, or start a new card for yourself. Hope that helps, and WELCOME! :)

Bluegirl 07/ 6/2017 #
