Both last year and this year, I participated in Kat Sloma's international postcard swap. It's such a great artistic combination of online activity and snail mail. Kat encourages you to meet a deadline, follow instructions, and get your work published into a postcard format. O.k., on initial reading, this may not seem like such a big deal, but really people, it is. It's just another way of demonstrating to our procrastinating selves that taking baby steps forward can help to push a door or resistance down and let your art pour through.
Below are some of the wonderful postcards I received, along with their messages. I posted the one I sent out at the very bottom. Join Kat next year yourself, and push your art a little further out into the world! Click on the link at the bottom of this post.

Mine. A little something I drew/painted while sitting in my booth at an art show a few years back. I added the following quote: “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see...”
