Saturday Spot: 1000 Posts… And Another Postcard Swap!!!

September 21st, 2010 · 45 Comments

I promised you all a swap a couple of weeks ago … but saw that our 1000 post mark was looming, so here we are!!! 1000 posts old… and it is time for…


You will notice lots of little tweaks around our blog, new pages to explore in the side panels, like se7en ElseWhere… and I am finally getting all our posts into some sort of easy to find layout…but in the meantime it is time for us to do a swap and postcards work for us!!! We love a swap… I was contemplating what to swap… we have done dishtowels, what about bookmarks or paper dolls, but still the easiest swap in the world is a postcard swap and we love our door that’s covered in postcards from around the corner and around the world…

Last year we posted a township around the world…


And this year we would like to send you something else – we will wait and see how many of you want to join in before we decide what to surprise you with on our postcards!!!

So this is how it will work…

Step 1: We will draw, craft, and/or art our postcards during the month of October.


Step 2: Comment on this post before the end of September.

Step 3: Immediately, head over to our contact page, just follow the link, and mention Post Card Swap and your snail mail address… I won’t have time to check to see if you send us your address or not… you have to do this!!! Now if you have sent us your address for a previous swap or giveaway you still have to send it again – I don’t keep your addresses, thats just the minimalist in me…delete, delete, delete.

Step 4: Once we have all your addresses in, by the end of the month then we will send our postcard to you with our address on it.

Step 5: As soon as you get our postcard we would like you to send one back to us… with whatever you like on it. Personalize it, draw on it, color it… or just a photo of where you live…

Finally: This swap is open to any of our blog following friends… if you live next door or at the furthest side of the world… and you want to play… then comment away!!!

  • 42 Karyn // Nov 4, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    hi 🙂
    just wondering if all your postcards were sent yet? I was so sure I left our address. Checked it twice. We have a postcard waiting to send you. I wonder if yours could have gotten lost in the mail? xx Karyn

  • 43 se7en // Nov 5, 2010 at 1:29 am

    HI Karyn… Your address is very unlikely to be lost!!! But we are still making our postcards – we do make them one by one and we did have about fifty to make… So your postcard is pending but they should all be on their merry way by the end of next week… I will go through all the addresses and check that they match up with the comments and so on… I will certainly blog the momentous event of the post cards getting sent out into the world and you can expect yours a few days after that… Thanks for asking – you haven’t been forgotten!!!

  • 44 Karyn // Nov 5, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    great!! No rush, wasnt sure when it was. thanks for a special blog and great idea xx

  • 45 se7en // Nov 5, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    Hay Karyn, Just addressed them – you are in!!!
