So sometimes you do daft things that turn out to be really rather fun…
This has been one of those times…
A week or two back I wandered into this shop http://www.pulpcreativepaper.com.au/ for a wee sticky (sticky beak=peek) because it’s utterly gorgeous and has lots of pretty things, and frankly, because some days you just need some pretty.
The store always makes me think of Kerrianne who also loves pretty paper (send me your address – not sure I’ve still got the correct one – I’d love to send you a card!) and it’s a really lovely place to go and get a little bit creatively inspired. Which, as you’ll see below, is what happened.
I got a bit captivated by these Drop Dead Cute Postcards and bought them without really any plan to use them but on the way home decided, that realistically, having postcards in the house is useless. They really do have to be posted to be called post cards.
So, I sent out the word via the twitters and the facebook inviting people to send me their address if they wanted to receive one of these arty cards and all 30 cards were snapped up within 48 hours
Also, because I’m a bit nerdy and love information, I plotted where the cards were going, on a map – See?

Sigh. I heart geography.
As I was writing the cards people offered to send me cards in return and because as much as I love making people smile with their cards, I love smiling because of receiving them! And so… some of the recipients are sending me cards as well, and here is the first – I’m blogging it, and linking it to the map so that those who played along can get the same smiles as me to see the cards other people have sent.
This is one of the things I love about the internet. It’s all about connection and that’s the stuff for which us humans have been designed. One of the things I love about the stuff you can do on the web, is actually making that connection visible.
So here you go… a page of visible, and beautiful connections, brought to you by the power of pretty paper and the collective intelligence/skillz of Australia Post and its worldwide counterparts.
