Cards april 2013


Hello!

In april of 2013 I've received 11 postcards. It has got me cards from far away and cards from near. My top three of furtherest away: 1; Argentina (11.488km). 2; Taiwan (9.399km). 3; South Africa (9.254km).  The nearest postcard came from the Netherlands itself. It was about 35 km away, not that far. I'll show you all.

Sometimes a card can travel a short time. Most times it are cards from the Netherlands (where I live myself). Mostly they travel for about 1-3 days (depends of course when you sent them, since there is no post on sundays, haha). Sometimes a card travels a long time. When the distance is loads of kilometers they travel a longer period of time (about a week, 10 days or so). And of course there are this cards that get lost while traveling, which make them travel at least a month (sometimes up to about 125 days). The card from South Africa for instance. It has travelled for about 63 days. This card expired before I received it. It means that I didn't receive it in time, so the sender can send a new card (which is after 60 days). You've got to register the card as soon as possible with the code that everybody puts on their card (for instance: NL-1234583, where in this case NL stands for Netherlands, where I live, and the code is a original to put on the card. It's a code that is used once and than you get a new one, with an address). I like it. Of course the nicest thing is when they travel a long distance in a short time, haha. 

So. Which card do you like most?
Happy Postcrossing!

Cards march 2013


Heey!

March came. One of the more happy months for me, since it's the month of my birthday! So I hoped for loads and loads of birthday cards (like I do every single year), but of course there didn't come that much. It's always fun to receive a birthday card, but it feels a little disappointing to get like 4 cards instead of 14 or 24. Though, the cards I've got weren't that less, I got loads of cards that weren't birthday cards. So my mailbox was happy this month! I'm gonna show you!














Which one do you like? The one I least like is the snowman card (I thought it was from Ukraine). But hey, there are 13 cards, there are so many choices!! I loved this 'overflowing' mailbox thing! Haha.

Love,
Yvonne

Cards february 2013


Hello!

The first month of the year is gone. It flew away like it was nothing and February started without any notice. February is already a short month and it started late. After about 2 weeks my first card came. It was a little bit if a bummer, after a month with 13 cards there came 'only' 7 cards. I'm thankful I got cards, but of course every month you (or at least I do) hope to get loads of cards and get pretty cards. But you can't always get what you want. So, this are the seven cards of February! 








Which one do you like most? I don't really have a favorite this month, since I liked the three Maori men from New Zealand, the black and white card (with the man, woman and the car) from Germany and the drawing...

Cards jan. 2013


Hi!

Well a new year has started. A chance to get more cards, to send more and discover more! It sure gets me excited, wondering what I will get this year! For January it means loads of different cards. Ad's, drawings, old buildings, sunrises and the old fashioned tourist cards (before you get me wrong: I love tourist's cards!). So, January brought me 12 cards, I loved them all!! Just watch and enjoy!

Keeping it together


Hi!! 

For a while now I've been ordering my postcards in a special book. Before I did this, I always forgot where they lay, they where laying everywhere! I just kept losing them! I decided that it was enough and bought a blank book from Ikea and I've been pasting them in there with tape. If I look back on it, I'm glad I did it!! It's so easy to get the book and just view them again and again. Mostly I forget to do it, so I have to do like 15/20 at a time, I put them through the scanner, upload them and get them in my book :). You can see the whole idea under here :). 















Do you like getting post? What do you do to keep it clear?? Let me know!!

Love,
Yvonne
