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?!

And too: If you ever receive more than 3 postcards in any round, please contact me, so I can get a few back from you. Just trying to keep postage down for everyone!

twobluecrows 10/ 6/2014 #

I haven't received a card from R32 yet, so I'm waiting to see if it gets here in time for this swap.

bookworm66 10/ 6/2014 #

I think I have at least two cards doing the rounds. Claire Smith from England and I started at Round 14. How are they doing?

NatashaMay 10/ 7/2014 #

Does anyone have my postcard? Nataร…ยกa May from Slovenia. I lost track of two of them and I don't know if they're lost or what. :(

gusmom2000 10/ 7/2014 #

I have MD Krouwel from the Netherlands and @littleaquila that I will be passing on. :) Has anyone seen mine?

gruskal 10/ 7/2014 #

I have @eponita - 5 rounds..more room to go. If anyone has @gruskal , please let me know. Mine have been traveling for many rounds and I haven't gotten any back. Thanks so much. Love to see how far all of these go.

camelsamba 10/ 7/2014 #

I have @inthewild 's (Mandy Jansen).

For R32 I sent another one from a swapper in South Africa but I forget her name. That one will be done once Mandy gets it; however, she has a note on her profile about a postal strike so i don't know how long that's going to sit in an unopened mailbag somewhere...

palmettogirl727 10/ 7/2014 #

Hello @bookworm66 l have your PC of The Market Hall right now! It has crossed the Atlantic 3 times already with various stops in the US. Still has room for 3-4 more. :)

leilx 10/ 8/2014 #

Hello. I have not received r32 yet but hopefully will prior to next round. I would still love to know where my two cards are: Camellia El-Antably or leilx.

schaefchen 10/ 9/2014 #

spinjenny 10/ 9/2014 #

I received a card from R32 today, just in time for this round, and it's very familiar - my own postcard, sent to Tammy and then sent straight back by her. Ah, the delights of random partner selection!

HelloCindi 10/ 9/2014 #

@spinjenny wow!!! I wonder if that happens often?

mdkrouwel 10/10/2014 #

I have the same @spinjenny I received my own card from round 28 back to me. So gonna send it to the next person!

EmilyT 10/10/2014 #

I'll be sending on @Danushaj 's lovely Colorado PC, @peachapatchi 's cute cat PC and a new one of my own.

ScrapHappyGabi 10/10/2014 #

I have a FULL one this time to send home to CORINA AALBERTS <3

Do I start a new one or wait until I receive from my partner and send THAT card on??



lostinavalon 10/10/2014 #

I have Vicky Englert's to pass along in this round.

AnnieMaxine 10/11/2014 #

If you do not receive one in time for the send by date, send out a new one of your own!

Deeno1105 10/17/2014 #

LOL @spinjenny & @mdkrouwel What are the odds?

@mcovey ......I rec'd your card yesterday. Started on R26 and hasn't missed a swap yet. It's the Blue Ridge Mountains card. It should be home soon.

Cubsfanjennie 10/19/2014 #

Ok my peeps...I was the late loser last time and here I sit again. I have been in the hospital since last week....this swap totally slipped my mind. I will have my hubby grab it and get it into the mail tomorrow!!!!

AnnieMaxine 10/20/2014 #

Still waiting for 4 people to click "Sent"!

Deeno1105 10/22/2014 #

Not to sound mean but why wait? It's way past the "Send" date. They must not be too excited to be in this swap. Just my opinion. Please don't send me HATE MAIL.

AnnieMaxine 10/22/2014 #

I wait because if I list the next round, other people are NOT going to have their postcards in time for this round. I do it so that cards can continue moving at the same rate. Less chance of things getting mixed up in the long run. Trust me...it works.

Soph 10/23/2014 #

Setting a pause between two rounds is one thing, but having to wait every single round for late senders started to become really annoying.

coolbeans 10/25/2014 #

Then please don't do the swap they may not get there PC in time, International takes up to 2 weeks sometimes, Its not your swap so back off and give them time, it will work out Annie is doing great with this swap

Soph 10/26/2014 #

@coolbeans I did not criticize Annie and her efforts to run this swap successfully. Annie is a great host! I complained about late senders in every round. If you are not frustrated, congratulations for your patience. But it's not me who should not participate in this swap. Best wishes.

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. Nataร…ยกa May, Slovenia
