St Patrick’s day!

Dear Patti Ann (IndieGal_60) ,

I need to say a huge thanks for this St Patrick’s day card! It is the first one I’ve ever gotten. It seems I’m lucky. ( such a bad St Patrick’s day joke, right? 😀 )

I love St Patrick’s day, even though we don’t celebrate it here in Macedonia. I’ve always wanted to dress all in green and celebrate with parades in big cities like Chicago or Boston, to shout and be happy and to try the green beer too!

When I think about it, isn’t it sad, how we are supposed to be happy only for St Patrick’s day? Why aren’t we happy every day instead? And fool around wearing green, or blue, or whatever we feel like wearing… Why don’t we just make our days to be holidays every day, eh? And be happy all the time.

I remember I’ve read this somewhere: “Let’s eat cake every day. It’s somebody’s birthday somewhere! ”

Happy (I know I’m late) St Partick’s day !

Neat & Keen – The Great Crane Giveaway

I received something very unusual. It was a brown envelope and when I opened it a brochure came out of it and The Great Crane Postcard. I honestly don’t remember how I applied for this, or how it came to me, but I am so glad it did!

The 5 x 7 inch origami crane is a 3-color silkscreen print signed, numbered, and printed by hand at Neat & Keen Studios by John Everett Morton in DeKalb, IL. While 1000 is quite a bit for a limited edition print, it relates to the Japanese tradition of folding 1000 origami cranes in return for good luck or one wish granted.

How to make a postcard from a single piece of paper. DIY

Diary of Difference

Hello guys. Today I’m going to let you inside my world. You’ll get the opportunity to see how I make my drawing postcards, and maybe it will be an inspiration for you to make one too, and show it to me after. 😉

You are probably wondering what you’ll need, so here is the list of requirements:

– Piece of paper (yes, one piece of paper. Only one. A4 format.)
– Pencil
– Rubber
– Glue
– Whatever else you think you’ll need to express your creativity (coloring pencils, ribbons, stickers, markers and more.. )
– I used retractable knife for cutting the paper, but I sometimes just fold the paper and then rip it out.

And yes, that’s all you need to make a handmade postcard. Oh also, creativity. You’ll need that too, but I’m sure you have lots of creativity inside you, so it won’t be a problem.

Flowers of Finland for the international day of women

wp-1457468396283.jpg

Photography and nature are a passion of mine. This card is definitely the best card I have ever received, and I know, I say that for every card I get, but this one is really a card that I admire a lot. This one is from Finland, with the ID of FI-2640399

The flowers have always reminded me of women. They are so gentle and beautiful,and you can love them endlessly, but be always careful not to hurt them.

As it’s International Women’s Day, I send these flowers to all women out there, to tell them they’re powerful, and beautiful, and as important as men are. They are brave and strong, and they are caring and lovely. They are all flowers, and they deserve to be happy. Not today, but every other day of the year.

 

 

Production of ceramics – Singapore, and how much power a postcard can have

wp-1457468386769.jpg

One of my favorite postcards. Not because it’s from reddit. Or because it’s large. It is from Singapore, from /u/duosharp, but the fact that makes her special is how the artist showed the production of ceramics in a single picture.

Look at this everyday life. Isn’t it amazing? When you drink tea and sit in your comfortable chair at home, next to the fireplace, do you think who made those tea pots and ceramic tools? No, I haven’t though about it, either. But now I did. This postcard had the power to make me see how much effort people put in stuff everyday. Not only to make a tea pot, but to make a lot more stuff, touchable and untouchable, that we don’t even realize.

It made me think that today, I drove my sister to her handball practice, and it doesn’t mean anything, not to me, not to her, but if that didn’t happen, she would have missed practice. If the people didn’t make the tea pot, maybe we wouldn’t have been drinking tea today, eh?

Duosharp, thank you for opening my eyes with a single postcard. Each postcard has such power. We only need to see it 😉
