Had my first run-in with a discourteous postcrosser today.

As a new user, I was unaware how maligned homemade cards are and how completely out-of-joint people tend to get about recieving them. So when a lady from Slovakia requested "views of my city and state", I made her a card out of a travel magazine from my area, explaining on the back that I'm from the smallest prefecture in Japan and my area doesn't even MAKE picture postcards!

She registered the card, but included no thank you or message in response.

I imagine she was put out about it's being a made card...

:/ Ah well, learned my lesson ... no more made cards.

What a snot!! I'd have been delighted that someone took the time to do and explain that!!

I got a card from a woman in the Netherlands today. It has a poem in Dutch on it which is really nice. Very cool poem,too =]

I updated my tradelist.

Or rather: a postcards I need to use up list.

I still have about 80 left to scan >.<

As I clean my apartment I turn up even more.

As it turns out, I have aquired a MASSIVE amount of blank postcards over the years.

I got a postcard from near Chicago today! My kids have had a few logged as received, but they haven't received any yet.

I started two toy voyagers! My zombie, Phillip, is on his way to England and the person getting him is sending me a dog named Sam. Meanwhile, an alien named Jellybean is who I'm blogging on now and eventually I should be hosting a little bear from the Ukraine!

So...you join the site, you buy postcards and send it internationally or domestically?

Speaking of self-made postcards, we should send other CosCom members with your cosplay picture postcards with your city as the background. Wouldn't that be kinda fun?

When you get ready to send, you can check a box that says you don't want an address in your country, if you don't want domestic. But there's no option for no international. Whenever postcards are logged as received, the person who sent them gets their name put in the next slot on the list, as addresses are requested.

I made photo postcards at walmart, using their photo collage stuff. My oldest daughter included a picture of her as Seras Victoria on her collage People have made really nice comments about the cards (and they were only about 9 cents each to make!).

Just got my 45th card today and am near filling up my 2nd album.

For people who are impatient waiting for cards to arrive and want to send more more often, the forum has a lot of swapping, games, chains and tags going on. I've been playing around for about 2 weeks and have already gotten three times as many cool cards from folks on the forum as I have in the official mix.
