Postcards in my mailbox! Birds and circles and sparkles, oh my!

Every day this week, I've returned from my mailbox with at least one piece of art from around the world. 

Here are the first postcards I received as part of the iHanna DIY Postcard Swap.


Nancy from Missouri made this abstract piece. I love the vivid colors. Turns out we both follow artist Jane Davies. Nancy even took one of Jane's workshops!

Jenny in Colorado sent me a taste of spring. The birds frolicking in the birdbath remind me of my own backyard. I can almost feel the sun on my face!

An unexpected treat on the card back -- the wise owl holds a secret message! I'd tell you what it says -- but then the owl would have to…well, you know.

My first international card came from Liven in Norway. Another abstract work. I love the way the wavy lines undulate, like an optical illusion.

Jeane used an unusual substrate for her card -- corrugated cardboard. I love the nubby texture, and how it contrasts with the white lace. More birds, a cat, and two silly kids -- a picture of happiness!

Jeane's card came in a transparent envelope with this sparkly insert. Lucky me -- 2 cards for the price of 1!
