Long overdue THANK YOU's!!!

Postcards from all over the world; thanks everyone!

overcast 18 °C

I grovel in front of all of you in apologies!!! ;)

I've been terrible at thanking all of you for the wonderful postcards I received. Every time I saw someone thank someone in the postcard thread it reminded me just how slack I'd been! Anyway, some of the photos below I took weeks ago already, it's just been my lazy self that didn't get them uploaded before today! So, in rough order of when I got them, here are the cool cards that I got :)

First off CupCake.... had some problems with postage but not when it came to the cards to Norway. They all came through without a problem (although one or two had 'insufficient postage' written on them !). I took this photo the day CC hit her 5000th post, hence the congrats on the picture.


On to the next cards, this time from Indonesia and Australia. Zags sent me two cards which came within a day of one another. Something about the first one being boring, but I liked both! And a very funny card from Ali G in Australia, just the way it should be when you get a card from Ali G!


Nikki and Arjan just couldn't help themselves when they saw this card I think.... especially if it was lying in the pub depicted I'd imagine :) This card has put Ireland on the map even more than before for a visit hehehe. Speaking of visits, Montreal is less than a month away and that's where this card from Tway was from. I'm really looking forward to the meetup and TP creating some havoc in the Canadian nightlife scene. The text I wrote kind of doesn't show very well, but it says "Yay, Montreal, here we come!"


The theme of the cards I receive seems to be beer. I wonder if that's my doing or the senders.... in lieu of that, the card from beerman and isa that I received last week was of an old brewery near where they live which has gone out of business. Could be an interesting investment??? TP beer would probably sell well (not to mention martinis if you can make those in a brewery)! Pardus couldn't stay behind and sticking with the cow theme sent this postcard from Switzerland.


It's the latest addition in what is quickly becoming an overfull board!!! Check out this overview picture... it certainly makes working in my 'new' office so much more pleasant!!


Now, I think I might have officially missed thanking for one or two cards. Please accept my sincere apologies in case it was one of yours. I really appreciate all the cards and always stick the new ones in the middle for a while. It's so inspiring!!!

Postcards from Ireland!

Wow, 3 in a day...

Yep, I got lucky today (well, Saturday actually but had guests all weekend so no chance to update before today)!

I got 3 postcards in one day!!! And not just from anywhere. All 3 from Ireland (although one shows the Czech republic on the front) and different senders!

So, a big thanks to samsara2, pardus and raven!!!


Although I put down on the photo who sent each, I am guessing most will be able to guess which one pardus sent :)

Seeing as I had guests this weekend, I did the whole tourist thing around oslo again so finally managed to get my hands on some postcards of my own.... they'll be following soon to those addresses that I have. If I don't have your address yet, let me know!!!

My board is starting to fill up nicely now but more are always welcome :)

Postcard 2... arrived today...

Thanks Hien, Jared and Pete!

Check out the latest postcard to grace the glass board. This time thanks to the meetup between Hien, Jared and Pete.


Other than that, todays board holds some recent reading material, Isadora and beerman's postcards at top right, a leaflet I designed for a company at bottom left and an old postcard from Texas at bottom right.

Oh, and I have now bought some postcards from Norway, so be prepared!!! PM me if you want one!

Thanks for the Postcards!!!

Isadora and Beermans postcards...

sunny 25 °C

Well, just a little thank you in my blog to isadora and beerman for their postcards. I received them last week but seeing as I only set up my new office today, I couldn't hang them anywhere until just a few hours ago. Now they're the first items to grace my newly purchased ikea glass writing/scrap board.


Ooh, and bottom left, to the left of my screen you'll see my ticket to Australia.... only a few more weeks to go!! :)
