This past Friday I mailed out 151 envelopes to 12 different countries, all filled with amazing swapped mini-cards. The return envelopes alone were so beautiful together!
If you aren’t familiar with what this project was, many of us began working on these cards way back in April. With so many of us sheltering in place and thinking about the pandemic, I had the idea that this second quarter exchange would be with 3″ x 3″ mini-cards that had been created using a masterboard made from 12″ x 12″ paper. Half the masterboard cards you would keep for yourself (8 cards of 3″ x 3″), and the other half of the masterboard, another 8, were mailed in to me to be swapped. On the back was a short message of a couple of sentences, saying what you’d noticed/experienced/learned from the pandemic.
All the cards that I went through and swapped were amazing! The collaging was so well done and cohesive. The messages on the back were often so thoughtful and honest.
With so many participants, I wasn’t able to take photos of all the cards, but I did take several photos of random sets that came across my desk. Here they are:
Thank you to everyone who participated, for your hard work, your thoughtfulness, and your positive vibes during this scary time. I hope that in doing this activity, it unites all of us in existing during this experience, and allows us to share some of the positive aspects of this difficult time.
