Sian's Pile of Postcards Exchange

As soon as I saw Sian's post about the exchange I signed up! I love receiving happy mail and what better to receive in the summer than postcards!

I knew that I would be going to Crete on holiday, so bought my six postcards (plus one for Sian of course!) and wrote them whilst on holiday, but decided to post them once I returned home as I wasn't sure of my Greek to buy the correct stamps!

I've been seeing my cards pop up on blogs, so I am happy to see that they have arrived. I have received all six of mine too! I received one.... then another.... then four on one day!
I received a card from Barbara all the way from the Smoky Mountains in Tennesse, a card from Buxton - Alexa of course! Abi sent me a card from her trip to the Imperial War museum. Another card from the States from another Barbara(!), this time though from Nashville. A card from Paris from Lea and finally another from the UK from Nicola in Whitstable.

I have put all the cards up in my scrapbooking area.
Now I can see them whilst I am doing my scrapbooking and be reminded of the lovely friends I have made all over the world through this blog. Blog friends are great! However, the hashtag we have been using on Instagram for this exchange was probably not the best!  #sianspileofpostcardsexchange

Thank you Sian for organising this! You do come up with some great ideas :)

I'd like to state at this point that I'm not on instagram, had nothing to do with the hashtag, haven't seen it and wish someone would think of something else!!!

But I am very glad you are enjoying your cards

It was still a marvellous swap, though!

I had t look twice at the hashtag - you're right not exactly the best one to use. :) That must have been great getting all that happy mail.
