PLEASE NOTE- i have extended the sign up and deadline dates about a week out as I will be on vacation and didn't have time before i left to start the swap.

Today was a momentous day.. Supreme court made gay marriage legal throughout the US!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So to celebrate I decided to create a handmade postcard swap!! Lets flood the post office with lots of rainbows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS OPEN TO ALL LEVELS OF SKILL.. IT'S ALL ABOUT SPREADING THE LOVE!!!!!Please read ALL the instructions and follow them:

  • ONE handmade PC to ONE partner

  • Card should be handmade not store bought

  • Card should be 4"x6" or larger

  • You can use any technique you like - mixed media, watercolor, drawing, painting, whatever - as long as you put some effort into it

  • This is about celebration of love and equality - so include rainbows and any other symbol you like to celebrate :)

  • Card should be sent "naked" - written on and NOT in an envelope

  • Card should be sturdy enough to make it thru the mail without being destroyed - that means either sturdy paper or backing OR you can laminate it if you are able. Its better to not have too many 3D elements that can get ripped off in transit. The flatter the safer it is.

  • Include a little note on the back in reference to whatever you want to say or even a little picture instead - it's up to you.

  • I vet my swappers very closely in order to protect the good swappers. So I will ban anyone with multiple or recent 1s or 3s.

  • I will allow newbies on a case by case basis.

  • I reserve the right to ban any swapper for any reason that makes me question their reliability.

  • I always angel my own swaps.

  • If you have any questions please pm me - i will be on vacation for a couple weeks and will only be checking my messages every 3 or 4 days.

I've just heard that equal marriage is legal throughout the US. Wonderful news :) Unfortuntely it doesn't stop public opinion, and there'll always be haters, but this is certainly a huge step forward. UK now have equal marriage too :)

It was a huge moment and a very emotional day. I think I spent the whole day crying tears of joy at all of the support coming out of the woodwork. All of the love finally being recognized and celebrated!
