And so we return to the Disappointassortment! Yes, that misbegotten purchase I made, and have been struggling with ever since. Well, thanks to a swap-bot trade entitled “I HATE This Postcard,” that horrible spider-web scene is finally out of my life!
It’s going to a swapper in Indianapolis, Indiana, and even though we were supposed to send something we hated, I’m afraid the recipient may hate this so much she gives me a low rating! I tried to make the back nice, with an assortment of stamps, stickers, & washi tape. I could not add any ink-stamped images, as the Disappointassortment’s manufacturer makes the writing-side of most of their cards slick. So nice to have this card out of my home, and my life; now I just need about 15 more swap-bot trades like this! Or I can collage over all of them.
On to more pleasant things. The whale will go to a whale-lover in Xi’an, Shaanxi, China, whom I tagged in a Postcrossing Forum Far East to America Tag. The card right below it–kitty*on the beach–goes out in the same thread, to a new Postcrosser in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China.
Finally, Fay Wray & King Kong (okay, it’s Yotsuba & King Ken) are headed off as a regular Postcrossing draw to another brand-new Postcrosser, this one in Anyang, Gyeonggi, South Korea. Hey, it’s my first Postcrossing card to (or from) that country!
A look at some of the stamps, stamps, and washi tape. One of the recipients in China expressed an interest in Harry Potter postcards. I didn’t have any of those, but I did have a stamp:
*It’s actually supposed to be a dog, but I have a hard time recognizing that. This is Max Toy Company’s Shibara, which is supposed to be a monster shiba inu. I just see a cat, until I see their Negora, the monster cat. This is a constant issue, and it seems to frustrate the friend who gave me versions of each toy.
