Making Another Batch of Postcards

I am happy to report that I have been keeping up with writing a poem on world peace each day this month and mailing it out on a postcard to another participating poet. I used up my first batch of postcards and have had to print a second.

Printing Postcards for Peace

In preparation for my participation in the World Peace Poets Postcard Project, I am working on making enough postcards to send out one card every day in February. Each postcard will contain an original short poem. I am looking forward to a month of receiving meaningful mail in return.

Block for World Peace Poets Postcard Project

I finished carving the block to make the postcards I will be sending out each day in February as a part of the World Peace Poets Postcard Project.

I will write a short poem about peace each day in February and send it out to one of the other members in my group.

I am looking forward to receiving cards back from other poets across the country.

Making your own postcard is optional.

Postcard Joy

I received three postcards from the same friend today. She told me that it would take at least three postcards to “see” Joshua Tree National Park and jokingly called me The Postcard King, an honor I think better befitting many others, but one I relish with a smile.

My great-niece received the first of the animal postcards we sent her. Her mother sent this photo to show how she fulfilled my request to color the card. I love her exuberant strokes and bold color selections! I mailed her another card today.

Colorable Postcards to Spark a Child’s Learning

I was so excited when I discovered this box of 50 colorable postcards. I thought our family could send a different card to my great-niece once a week. What a great way to engage a young mind with nature and the joys of learning and corresponding! Our only disappointment is all fifty cards are not different. There appears to be two of each. I will have to find some other animal postcards to send alternately.
