Come join in our Summertime postcard swap!  Please keep this thread focused on August's mail   : ) 

How will this work? Pick out a postcard from your travels or hometown. Should you live in a small town or for whatever reason not have access to a store bought postcard, have fun making your own, of course :) You can print out a picture (either an image or photo you have taken) and paste it onto a half sized sheet of cardstock paper--instant postcard. Of course, a regular note card is welcome, too. On the backside, greet your swap partner with a story related to your Summertime fun and perhaps how that relates to the card you chose. Please remember, there is no one way to go about this, just that it brings cheer to all participating and of course everyone feels welcome to join in, which you sure are! 

Please sign up in this thread or PM me by Wednesday, July 26th at noon . Mona and I will pair everyone up asap and let you know your match by end of month. To expand the fun and also places you will get a postcard from, pairings will be changed each month. This is why I do ask that you sign up each time in the current month's thread. P.S. We ask that your match receives their card from you before the end of the month--so for this  swap, by the end of Aug.

Have some summer fun!  --Jeanne

9. Jennifer 10 Ani and 11 Towana and 12 Samantha :) 

I went ahead and did the matching.

Here are the pairs: 

Towana and Vicky T

Samantha and Ani

Me and Melissa

Kimmy and Jennifer

Michelle S and Janet

Jeanne and Amy

ETA: Since a lot of us also do Sticker Train :), I am going to PM, everyone in this August postcard swap, all 12 addresses, I will specify your ONE match. Please do not feel obligated to send to everyone, I probably will not be able to. I just realized a lot of you do send to multiples and I admit this makes it easier for me, too. 

P.S. LOL and thanks Jeanne for telling me I jumped to quickly with pairings. I completely missed that the deadline is tomorrow at noon to sign up. I sincerely thought it was today! I also want to be sure and clarify we do have another postcard swapper--Pat! If anyone else still wants to join please let me know by tomorrow at noon. I won't be coming on until tomorrow evening though so we can get Pat matched. Otherwise, Pat, I will send to you for sure :) Thanks everyone and sorry about any confusion. 

P.S.S. I just PM-ed all of you Pat's info. PLEASE let me know if you do not get the PM. I will PM you, Pat right now :)

I have PM-ed you, Pat and Sharon! :) If either of you would like everyone's info, just let me know. Thank you!

Big thanks to everyone who has joined in our Summertime Postcard Swap! We should do it again next year, don't you think? Also would anyone like to do September, one last month?
