Postcard & Snail Mail

Yours Truly Finally Made Her Own Postcards!

The thought that in a few months after all the painful hours I spent at work each day I’d be somewhere traveling for a few days is one of the things that keeps me going everyday. But due to the covid19 pandemic many plans got cancelled; now I’m even taking a month off of work. I guess what I need right now is pretty much something keep me occupied, or at least something fun to do during this stay-at-home period, just like everyone else on Instagram who seemed so busy doing their hobbies or learning new skills. And all this eventually led me to revisit an old hobby; sending postcard and snailmail. I know I still have to go out to the post office to send them but it’s only 500 meters from my house.

It’s been some time since the last time I sent postcard and I rarely did the direct swap either. I pretty much didn’t stock up on the postcards to actually start sending one again, so I decided to make one with some photos taken by yours truly using analog cameras & mirrorless. Yayy! Another stuff to keep me occupied, plus..our photos don’t only end up on the gram.

To keep the postcards and other stuffs for snail mailing, I provide 2 boxes; one for the postcards (blank and incomings), snail mails, & handmade envelopes, while the other one is used to keep stamp supplies, washi tapes, image cutouts and whatnot. I know it’s not really much but it makes me easier to organise them rather than to put them in the same box.

Anyway if you’re interested to swap your postcard with mine please let me know. Or if you want to send yours to me that would be great :3
