The Great Postcard Project

Who else likes mail? I rarely get mail that isn't a bill or a magazine or a check (not complaining about that last one). I have a couple of friends who I regularly exchange mail with and it's delightful to get a handwritten note or a thoughtfully sent box of Pocky. I don't have tons of Pocky that I'm willing to share because I really like Pocky, but I do have a pile of postcards. I've purchased postcards everywhere I've traveled over the last decade for the purpose of sending notes, but I haven't done enough of the sending part. My box of blank postcards is overflowing, and I'm not letting myself purchase more until I send most of the ones I have. Enter the Great Postcard Project.

Even after sending postcards to everyone in my address book, I'll have dozens of them left. Dozens. From China, from Disney, from national parks, from museums - it's a mix. And I'd like to send them to you! Anyone who fills out this Google form with his or her address will get a randomly selected postcard with a brief note or quote or poorly drawn stick figure. Yay real mail! If you'd rather, you can email me your address too (my email address is right there on the sidebar).

I promise I'll keep your address confidential and will not share it with marketing companies or use it for my personal newsletter that does not exist.

Submit your address by November 21st to get on the list!


  1. What a nice project! Postcards are like hugs from far away friends coming through the mail.
    Can we enter even if we don't live in the US?

  2. Cool! I just entered, but I was wondering if you have thought about joining Postcrossing? I've been a member for 3 years and it is cool sending and receiving postcards from all over the world.

    You can find more info at if you are interested :-)

    1. Oh, cool - I'll have to check that out!

  3. I concur with Helen — you should definitely check out Postcrossing! I've been a member a couple of years now and it's pretty great. :)

  4. Fun idea! I always intend to buy and sent postcards when I go places, but I get distracted and never get around to it. Or if I do buy a postcard or two, AND manage to write on them right away, I still don't get around to mailing them until I'm almost home :)

    1. I never write them until I get home. Or maybe when I'm on the plane home. :)

  5. I adore writing and receiving letters. Its honestly my favorite thing in the world. I love the idea that I can just spend a few minutes writing a letter and brighten someones entire day. its amazing. Letters are the best.
    I love this project that you're doing! You're awesome!

    1. I agree wholeheartedly (about the effects of letters, that is). :)

  6. That's a wonderful idea. Thanks!

  7. I always love real mail. and especially postcards. I love sending one home to myself from wherever I am as not only a momento but then it's stamped from that place/country/city/etc. I love it!!

    And not sure if you've done it at Harry Potter land in Universal, but it will get stamped as owl delivery from Hogwarts or something like that. That was neat to receive back home :)
