postcard perfect: a handmade postcard

postcards, souvenirs

I posted about this postcard giveaway awhile back + after a few months, I was able to receive this lovely DIY postcards in the mail. I was amazed at the creativity of the people who designed this card + was amazed even further when I found out that the postcards are made from recycled materials. The cardboard back part is actually made from milk cartons! I can only imagine the amount of time + love put together to create this postcard. That is why I treasure it dearly 🙂

The lovely baby blue postcard also came with this equally lovely message at the back:

Sharing this with Postcard Perfect 🙂

postcard perfect: a postcard for myself

I sent this to none other than myself during our Postcrossing Enthusiast Meet-Up {I have yet to blog about it}, know why it is quite special? It was signed by all the PE members in attendance that day, so it is my little priceless memento of that encounter, along with a bag of postcards + other freebies that I was able to bring home that day, not to mention am sending this straight from the Manila Central Post Office {which I’ve been for the first time that day, too ^_^}

In the spirit of the season, I have a little good news. I have 7 more of these signed cards + I will mail it to the first 7 persons to comment on this post. Just a little token before the year ends.

So comment away + fill out my contact form with your mailing details. I shall be mailing these postcards as soon as the 7 recipients are complete.

I will wait for your comments then + here’s to an eventful several days before 2012! ^_^

This will be my share for this week’s Postcard Perfect, too…

I got three of these postcards when we went out a few weeks back. They might be a bit pricey at P40 each {about $1}, but these cards are for a World Hunger Relief 2011 project + proceeds from them will go to the UN World Food Programme to help feed children in conflict-affected areas in Mindanao. You are actually hitting 2 birds in one stone when you get some of these cards, you are not only adding to your stash of postcards to collect or trade, but you are also donating for a worthy cause! So, it really is a win-win situation. ^_^
