WELCOME 2013

It's been 2 years I neglected this blog.  The reason is I stopped participating in postcard exchange and it also stopped my postcard collection.  Though, I still keep my postcard collection in a box.  However, this year I decided to continue my hobby in collecting postcards.  Aside from that, I want to collect other craft and art materials.  So I would like to retain this blog-a blog of recollection.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013

CUSTOM POST CARD


I love sending and receiving postcards around the word.  I am into this unique hobby for nearly two years now.  I received a lot of beautiful postcards mostly from Finland and other parts of Europe.  I received rarely but so unique postcards from other countries like Maldova, Belarus, Iceland, Brazil, Cyprus, Tanzania, Bahamas, India, and a lot to mention.  I like the stamps too.  I also like the message written on the back of the postcard.  Recently, I have my own postal box and even the mail man noticed there are postcards arrive every week.  I am enjoying this hobby more.

Aside from that, I am into photography.  I like taking photos of nature and the beautiful places in my country.  I do travel from time to time.  Our place is full of beautiful attractions and history.  We have old churches here.  We have festivals and native foods.  I would love to show it to the whole world through sending personalized mailing post cards.  It is because there are limited local postcards of our local city. In fact, I received a couple of personalized postcards and it made me to have that great idea.  And I found the custom postcard printing online that I can upload my own pictures, design it.  Voila!  it will become an author's postcard.  Aside from that, you don't need to send the postcards to, they have services of direct mailing post cards.  They print, mail and send it to the special people you chose to receive the postcards.  So quick and easy and you can save money. it is as low as $12 for 100 cards.

THE FAMOUS DOORS OF DUBLIN

Here's another unique postcard I received recently.  I was so amazed when I handed it from my P.O. Box.  Colorful doors indeed!  According to the sender, these colorful doors are from the Georgia style buildings built by the English during their occupation of Ireland.  What a selection of the famous Doors of Dublin from in and around the Georgian Squares of Dublin City.  Thanks so much Andy!

FIRST EVER POSTCARD ON MY P.O. BOX



After I have my Postal Office Box, this is the first postcard I had on it.  It came from Mia of Finland.  According to her, this is a very typical view in her country.  But for me it's a very beautiful view since I really like sunset and sunrise.   Like Philippines, Finland has thousands of islands too.
