What’s 52postcards Project about?

Posted on January 17, 2011. Filed under: Postcards, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , |

In early January 2011, I was at Green Apple Books (greenapplebooks.com) in San Francisco checking out the books, thinking about buying another rubber monster finger puppet, and looking for a card I could send to my Auntie Laura to let her know I was thinking about her. I found a cool one with something about being a “being able to save the world wearing a pink tutu and a really great tiara” and even though I really liked the card, I wanted to send her something new every week.

What about postcards? What about postcards with original art created by me her favorite and most beloved niece? Now I would finally have an excuse to take even more photographs of my dogs. The postcard would be mailed every Thursday with a little note on the back and the link to this website so she could read about the art on the front. I am a writer, but not one who writes about herself and this project would force (or encourage) me to do just that. I decided to include one other person for 52postcards- my friend Christina who recently moved to Las Vegas, so this blog should really be called 104postcards. Then, I decided to add just one more person to the project: my friend named Ruby, who is probably one of the greatest people I know. You’re probably thinking that I should change the name to 156postcards, but I think 52postcards sounds snazzier, so I’m keeping the name the same.

Interested? Check back soon for the art for each postcard and the story behind why I chose it for the project. 

Really interested? Want to sign up for a chance to have a completely original postcard sent to you? it’s easy- email your name and snail mail address to: 52postcards@gmail.com

If you go the route of creating your own art, you might visit 365mailart. It contains the pictures of like-minded people sending out “mailart” to 365 people.

Great- I will check it out!

Hey, I thought I was her favorite niece!!!
Just kidding… Great Idea Cindy! I’ll subscribe and I’m looking forward to seeing your art… Does Word Press offer a copy write feature? Something to consider! We are doing something similar on my Blog …Saturday Scenes with Boz… one scene a week… Aunt Laura loves this idea too! You are a sweetie and I love you!
