Sunday at home

Have I ever told you about my postcard swap?
OK, I must say that it´s so entertaining and fun for many reasons and since I love handwriting this was something that I always wanted to do, swapping postcards with people all over the world!

I receive 4 to 6 postcards each month because I am a beginner in this Postcrossing group and I can send randomly to someone in the planet the same quantity .
You can also take a peek on POSTCROSSING website and check out how interesting it is!!

The great thing is that I can list all my preferences and then I receive the most interesting postcards according to it , like these ones that I really love!

:: COFFEE ::




:: BEAUTIFUL STAMPS :: ( that could be part of another collection, should I start it?)




:: BIG SIZED POSTCARDS ::



:: LIGHTHOUSE ::



and
:: CUTE AND PRETTY DESIGNS ::


There is a blog about Postcrossing and many schools around the world introduced to their students to practice English writing through this activity so they can also learn different culture, tradition, people , they write as a group or individuals and I ´ve already sent to two schools in Germany.
This is a very cheap and easy way to do good things like writing to someone who is ill like this one where many postcrossers got in!

My little one loves to check out the mail box and when she gets one we sit together and I read and show her the stamp, the photograph and we look at the map to see the location from where it came from.

Wishing you a very relaxing Sunday with your loved ones and a great week to all of you!!! Thank you for stopping here, leaving your kind comments!!!
