I send postcards in batches because here in Manila, whenever you want to send a letter or a postcard, you have to drop it off at the nearest post office. Oh and buy stamps while you’re there. It’s so much easier to send postcards in other countries (I’ve tried it in the U.S. and Singapore) because you can buy stamps either from a vendo machine or in convenience stores and just drop them off in mailboxes. I sent off my latest batch a couple of days ago, I think there were fifteen postcards in that pile – three for friends in real life and the rest for book blogger buddies. Here are the postcards that I used:
The philatelic stamps that I bought from my last post office run that I used in this batch:
In the next picture, you can see the countries where I sent off the postcards. Also, the stickers that I used. I like putting stickers on postcards because they look more fun that way. In this batch, I used stickers of Philippine animals, which I bought in a local store:
New philatelic stamps that I bought for the next set of postcards that I’ll send:
I also got this Penguin postcard from the lovely Capillya. She said she chose this one because it reminded her of the Queen’s Thief series:
Thank you, Capillya! I finally gave in and signed up for Postcrossing, a postcard swap website. Hello, postcard addiction! I already sent off my first batch of Postcrossing cards and I hope they all arrive safely. I’m still waiting for my Puffin set to arrive, I’ll probably send another batch of postcards when it gets here.
