Four of my cards are headed to America - 2 x Virginia, plus Arizona & Oregon - and the fifth card is Quebec bound. None at all going to Europe this time which was a surprise, as last time I took part in this swap there were a lot of Scandinavian participants.
The theme for the postcards was "empowerment", and the most empowered words I know are those from the Pearl Jam song, "I Am Mine":
I know I was born and I know that I'll die
The in between is mine
I am mine
So I decided to kind of re-create a journal entry from last year:
Although I didn't still have any of the original imagery, and I thought I'd do it in slightly more uplifting colours, so the end result is nothing much like the original:
I've stuck one of my faux postage stamps on the back of each (along with a real one!) - I hope the recipients like them ....
And I wonder what I shall receive in return? Exciting!
