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 screenname 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.

Only join if you are awesome and a non-flaker. 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 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 and will ban anyone that I feel like. 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 unless instructed otherwise.

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. That's just etiquette, folks!

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. This is only fair...why should a few of us do all the work and you just get to sit back and wait?!

I would love to know if anyone has recently seen/ has my postcard (arianneroxa). Thanks!

danushaj 12/12/2013 #

I too am opting out of this one, but I will swap again in Jan! Happy Christmas and New Year everyone! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

bookworm66 12/12/2013 #

My postcard from Round 16 hasn't made it to missyhope yet. I really hope it isn't lost.

inthewild 12/12/2013 #

Happy Holidays everyone. For those going away on holidays have fun!

NatashaMay 12/12/2013 #

I haven't gotten one from R18, if I do I'll definitely join. If I don't, I might join with a new one. :)

AnnieMaxine 12/12/2013 #

For those that haven't received Round 18 yet...have no fear! The holiday mail always backs things up a bit!

I'm the 2nd to be signing Elisabeth Neuhauser's card (no swap id). I fear my card is lost, haven't seen my name for many, many rounds....

twobluecrows 12/13/2013 #

My partner sent from Australia on the 11th, so I'm not too hopeful that it will be here by the 18th in time for me to sign up for this one, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

dakotadee 12/13/2013 #

if I get a card in time, will sign up

siouxx05 12/13/2013 #

It doesn't matter if you don't have the card by sign-up, as long as you have it by send-by.. even with Chrismas, that is an extra 6 mail days...

jburb 12/14/2013 #

I was the first to sign DiscoRia's postcard, and I will be sending it on this round. Glad my card arrived safely to its second stop!

arianneroxa 12/14/2013 #

I haven't yet received my card from last round; fingers crossed, as I would love to participate in this round.

Mimi7 12/14/2013 #

Happy Happy! I received my Angel Oak tree postcard back! :) Thanks Vronica Smit, Barbara Cummings, Karen Rochat, Ina from the Netherlands, Joy Hurley, Emily Visnoskie, Cathy Stewart-2 times, Wigi Widayah, Pat Locastro. Thanks to all these folks for continuing in the swap and forwarding my postcard on. It had some great adventures and came back in excellent shape! :)

Mimi7 12/14/2013 #

I will be sending Susannah Hamilton's postcard on in this round.

kerrydwynn 12/14/2013 #

SIGH..........I think mine is lost in transit too, for I have asked each round and no one :-( seems to have seen it. @kerrydwynn ?????

thisismeAXiD 12/14/2013 #

Cubsfanjennie 12/14/2013 #

Sending on Heather Farah's (azmom875) and Sheri Downer's (no swap name)

AnnieMaxine 12/14/2013 #

@Cubsfanjennie - Sheri is no longer swapping with us. You can send hers directly back to her.

Hollycarole92 12/16/2013 #

I have two to send on this round - @flowerchild and @flyingfox

flyingfox 12/16/2013 #

@Hollycarole92 - Yay, thank you!!! (^^)

flyingfox 12/16/2013 #

I will be sending on 2 cards-

  • Joy H from TN (no username)

  • Claire S from UK @Bookworm66

Both are about 1/3 full, plenty more traveling ahead!

arianneroxa 12/16/2013 #

I've just received both Holly Godbey's (of Lexington, Kentucky) traveling postcard as well as Erin Flattery's (of Asheville, North Carolina) Friendship Book. :)

mcovey 12/16/2013 #

I haven't received from last round , but will join in and when I do I will send it , if not I will start another one unless you have an extra to pass this way @AnnieMaxine

alicemayspring 12/16/2013 #

I will be sending( Manders2280) Meredith also Deeno Moss from Allen no swap-name on card in the next round.

AZmom875 12/16/2013 #

I just realized I needed to sign up. I have LUCINE of the Netherlands to mail off. This isnt the double profiler is it?

AZmom875 12/16/2013 #

I found Lucine, she is not a double profiler. or suspended. She just hasnt played in this since round 15 in OCT. I am basing that one someone rating her for sending. I could be wrong. But that is whose cards I have

AnnieMaxine 12/16/2013 #

@mcovey - I do have one that I could pass on to you. Let me know if you do not receive it by the sign up date and I will get it to you.

@AZmom875 - No, Lucine just hasn't been participating and has returned the card that she had in her possession. She just isn't able to swap with us at the moment. Which is totally fine...however, if someone decides not to swap any longer, they forfeit their card. It's not fair for us to do all the work and they just get to sit back and wait for their card to finish up. Ya know?

HelloCindi 12/16/2013 #

For this round I will be passing on @Apelser card that she started in R12.

Hollycarole92 12/16/2013 #

YES! So glad to see that someone has mine! @arianneroxa

joyhouse5 12/17/2013 #

I have Chantele of Wale? Do you know who this is? OH Anniemaxine you had this card 2nd. It is so cute, it has 3 little Japanese girls hand drawn on the image.

coolbeans 12/17/2013 #

I have Gabriella Sainz from round 17 will be sending hers out this round and it only has 1 name so far

inkedwithelegance 12/17/2013 #

Mine arrived while I was on vacation :) Thank you everyone who passed it along safely :) Thank you @AnnieMaxine for hosting!

NatashaMay 12/18/2013 #

I haven't received from R18 but I'm signing up anyway. I'll wait until the last day to mail to see if I get anything, if not, I'll send a new one. Hope that's ok? I would ask @AnnieMaxine to send me one that needs to get back in rotation but I'm in Europe and with holidays there's no guaranty I'll get it on time. If you have any other suggestions, I'm opened to it. :)

AnnieMaxine 12/18/2013 #

@NatashaMay - that's just fine!

AnnieMaxine 12/18/2013 #

@joyhouse5 - Chantele is @daisydayz

dakotadee 12/18/2013 #

I have Marie from South Africa. She is 2 rounds from being done. Has anyone seen my card?

London13 12/18/2013 #

I don't have mine from the last one either. I will also sign up and see what happens. I also haven't seen mine listed in the last couple rounds. Anyone have Brooke Prislupsky?

pne 12/19/2013 #

I just got Amit Agrawal's postcard back - @amit19 - and will be sending it home as per AnnieMaxine's mail. It's about 2/3 full with 7 signatures.

So I'll be starting a new postcard for this round!

mdkrouwel 12/19/2013 #

I haven't received any cards for round 18 as well. I will wait till around 27/28 December, if nothing has arrived by then, I will send in a new one of my own.

flowerchild 12/19/2013 #

I will be passing on cubsfanjennie's card from I am guessing round 16. It is the "standing on a corner in Windslow, AZ" card that I LOVE!!!! I need to get myself one of those cards, long story lets just say it was a very pleasant 'flashback'!!!!!!! So in the next day or so your card will be leaving the snowy NE and heading to warmer climates for Christmas!

London13 12/19/2013 #

I thought I had signed up, but apparently I didn't. It's okay though because I don't have my pc from the last round yet. See you all in the next round.

mdkrouwel 12/20/2013 #

Today I received a card from the previous round, but this card I already signed 3 rounds before. What to do, write my name again on the card?

mdkrouwel 12/20/2013 #

Oh just hold on, I see this card's receiver is on the list you just mailed us this week (rachel Doyle). I will put a stamp onto it and return it to her.

jeepermom 12/20/2013 #

Sending Cassie Davis' postcard back to her as she was on our no longer swapping list...so I will be adding a new card to the mix! Thanks @AnnieMaxine for doing these swaps...they are my favorite!

twobluecrows 12/20/2013 #

Bummer! :( my next card came yesterday-a day late, so I have to wait till January. See you then!

AnnieMaxine 12/20/2013 #

@mdkrouwel - even though it's not applicable to you now, just for everyone's future reference, as I've gotten this question before...it's totally fine if you end up signing the same pc more than once. Sometimes people travel to the same place twice and so should our pc's! Still put your name on it...even if you've signed it five times before :)

Sacha 12/21/2013 #

Just sent mine out today for the first round! Hope to recieve one of yours! Love Sacha

SabrinaDeeBerry 12/21/2013 #

Is my postcard @SabrinaDeeBerry still in rotation?

I sent it out from Round 11 in Jul 27, 2013.

rosedzi 12/22/2013 #

I am sending out Vanessa Schwittays card from Germany with the typewriter and the flowers on it.

AZmom875 12/23/2013 #

I got my postcard I now have Tammy Odell Tao67's card and the next sender will probably be the last. She will be glad to see it come home. I was checking to see if round 20 was up yet. I thought I would post this while I was thinking of it.

AnnieMaxine 12/27/2013 #

Round 20 will be up as soon as everyone has sent their PC's. Looks like 32 people still haven't sent with one day left to send! Yikes! Send 'em out guys!!!

KarlaKC 12/27/2013 #

Mailed Heather Farah's @AZMom875 postcard to @BeckyG56 today!

kim91262 12/29/2013 #

yikes! i put mine in the mail box yesterday, but the mail guy must have missed it b/c it's still in there today! i have to make a trip to the PO on monday, so i'll drop it off there then! sorry it'll be late :(

julebear 12/29/2013 #

i did not receive one from R18, so I guess I will start a new one. Was hoping to get it before the deadline, so I will get one in the mail tomorrow. Have received pcs from R19. Will be sending Sue S from Australia her pc home, it is full!!! (no username?)

asmom 12/30/2013 #

sending on D. Sull's card, second time I've had it..

NatashaMay 03/23/2015 #

I'm sorry to see this swap end. Thanks @AnnieMaxine for keeping it going for so long. Hope I get to see my postcards return to me. I have lost track of them a while ago. Nataša May, Slovenia
