Summer is coming! This thread is in thanks to our friend Jeanne G for the idea and also kindness in offer to help me with it. Thank you, Jeanne :) 

Anyone travelling this Summer? Sticking close to home like me but doing something Summer -season specific? (I'm going to be helping with my church's summer camps :) Come join in our Summertime postcard swap! I will put up a separate threads for July (mid June) and August (mid July). Please keep this thread focused on June :) 

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 :) I have done this before by printing out a picture (either an image or photo I have taken) and pasting 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 match with a story related to your (for this month June's) 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 Thursday, June 1st. Jeanne and I will pair everyone up asap and let you know your match. 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, easier for me to keep track of. P.S. We ask that your match receives their card from you before the end of the month--so for this first swap, by the end of June. 

I am looking forward to this :) I hope it will bring smiles all-around. 

God Bless!

Welcome, Connie! Remember you can make a postcard, you don't need to buy one at the store. A regular card is fine, too :)

Up to 17! Thanks, Towana. I hope you have fun in CT. I've never been there except through the Baby-sitters club books lol (they take place in a fictional CT town).
