Awhile back, I asked Madeline Farni to create a collage postcard – something creative that she would send to someone to thank them. She was 17 when she created this beautiful piece. I think it perfectly captures the essence of a BlessBack. Isn’t she talented?
As some of you who’ve read my book BlessBack know, I keep postcards. My friends have sent me postcards to places I’ll never have the chance to go to – India, Pisa, Japan and beyond. I love to experience travel through their eyes and hear their stories of different cultures and places they’ve visited.
Today, I signed up with Postcrossing. It’s a place where fellow postcard lovers can send their postcards to people all over the world. The first postcard I’m to send is to a woman in Russia who loves to collect stamps. I can’t wait to send her a postcard and fill it with all kinds of cool stamps.
As the sound of school bells encroach upon us, don’t forget to send those nieces and nephews of yours a note, telling them how much you love them.
