Postcard Scavenger Hunt Swap


Hello lovely people. I hope you have had a good week. Lately I've been thinking about mail and letters and I want to do another swap on my blog. It makes me miss my little mail group which I've stopped because it was too difficult to do by myself. So I thought I could do some occasional swaps on my blog instead.

I thought I would host a Postcard Scavenger Hunt Swap. How it works:

♥ I will assign you one swap partner for the duration of the swap. There will be four prompts and each week you will need to send out one postcard to your swap partner for four consecutive weeks. I will give you at least two weeks to find your postcards and then the swapping begins. 

Swap timeline:

Sign up closes on the 31st May 2013 Closed 
♥ Partners assigned by the 3rd June
♥ First Postcard to be sent 21st June
♥ Second Postcard to be sent 28th June 
♥ Third Postcard to be sent 5 July
♥ Fourth Postcard to be sent 12 July

Prompts:
♥ Black and white
♥ Arty/illustration
♥ Colourful
♥ Beauty

These prompts are fairly general so you can send whatever you think fits the topic. This is a pretty low risk swap and really doesn't cost much to send a postcard (interstate or overseas) but I ask to please not sign up unless you are ready to commit to sending four postcards. Plus if you do sign up please send postcards that you will like to receive yourself and to put some thought into it. 

To join:
♥ Email me gracienne.nancy{at}gmail{dot}com with the following:
1. Your full and address
2. Whether you are willing to send overseas (depending on who signs up you may need to send overseas so please keep that in mind if you really don't want to send overseas) 
3. List 5 likes (to help your swap partner)
4. Your blog/Twitter/Instagram/Other social media site

So this is supposed to be fun but I need to set guidelines because I want everyone who joins to receive their four postcards. Please only join if you have a blog or Instagram or Twitter or some type of Social media site that you can be checked so you don't just disappear on me. I'm sorry if this sounds so strict but mail is meant to be fun and enjoyable and I know it can be disappointing when you don't receive anything. 

I hope do more of these light swaps so be on the lookout and sign up :)

What a neat idea! I may need to first figure out where to get a postcard. haha... It's sad that I can't think of one single place in my town to get one!

It's a great idea Gracie, but I'll be out of town most of the time the swap is going on and knowing me I probably won't be able to send the cards. But it's a great idea and I would love to do it in the future :)

Oh no I missed out!!!! I'll have to keep an eye out for the next one - snail mail is the best especially when it involves new friends and pretty postcards!
