Snail mail and handmade cards

I enjoy using the postal service – especially for handmade cards and postcards. I’ve corresponded with 54 countries and 35 US states (and 1 US military region). I’ve received from 43 countries and 25 US states,  sent to 51 countries and 30 US states (and 1 US military region), and sent from 3 countries and 2 US states.

I’ve officially sent 1140postcards and received 115 postcards through Postcrossing, not counting direct trades set up outside their system. I’ve received 49 “thank yous” on /r/randomactsofcards. I’ve sent 15 sick children postcards through Send Kids the World.

These stats were last updated on 11/25/18.

I showcased my foreign postcard collection in the OC Fair 2018.

Locations I’ve to which I’ve sent or from which I’ve received are marked on my Google map, although it’s not always current.

You can see some of my handmade cards in my Flickr album.
