Liberate Your Art 2016 Postcard Swap

I made a mistake when I signed on to this project - I didn't write down which postcards I sent to Kat to be a part of the swap!! And because I sent some extras for Kat & her helpers, I really got lost! But above are the ones (I believe) I sent & were mailed out.

Starting top left & reading l-r: Trees Ablaze, Colorado ; Rural Laundry, NY ; The Old Barn (NJ or NY) ;  Northville Lake, NY ; Green Fields, Ireland ; Couple of Blondes, NYC

Only 1 person posted on the Facebook page that they received The Old Barn postcard - the rest I have not heard about at all. I can only hope they all found good homes & that the people who received them, enjoyed them!

Speaking of receiving, here are the 5 postcards I received from the swap:

 "WINTER" is from Susan Adams
 Chrome florals are from Jill Eudaly
 Robyn Legg sent this one - so intriguing
 Adorable giraffe is from Crysta Hooper
 And this lovely collage is from Charlotte

In addition, I received 1 from Kat also (she sends one to each participant) - here is her beautiful card:

And last, but definitely not least, I received a postcard from my art friend Sea Dean, which was a wonderful delight!

This was a fun project to take part in & I'm glad I did it. If I do it again next year, I plan to have extras & do side swaps. It makes it much more fun!

I love all of these Nan. I particularly like the two barns and the girl with the dog is very unique. You also received some fine postcards in return. I'm glad you enjoyed the experience and will be coming back for more. :)

Your work is beautiful! I live I. The Appalachian Mountains and the barn appeals to me so much! If you ever want to do a side swap, I'm your gal!

HI Nan First of all your art work is amazing. I love all those you sent. This is my fourth year participating and I have only ever heard from two people who have received my cards. I eagerly look forward to hearing where they landed and try to not be disappointed. I prominently display my website and email.
I just know they are somewhere making someone smile or say 'aaaahhhh' I am sure yours are as well.

Your work is wonderful, and I am sure they all found happy homes. Looking forward to seeing you in the swap next year, and I'd love to swap. Happy creating!

Thank you everyone for your comments - they are so appreciated! I thoroughly enjoyed this project & do plan to do it again next year. And next year I will make extra cards for side swaps (I had no idea that was so popular - it's a wonderful idea!!). Thank you again!

You sent and received some lovely cards. I continue to be amazed at how many ways people have to express their creativity. And this exchange is such a great way to share our art! You do beautiful work, by the way. I love the red barn, and the bridge down below in the next post ... Cheers, and hope to see you next year!
