Donna from Nova Scotia, Canada

So I have been writing this blog for about a month and a half give or take. It came about thanks to my sister in Fredericton. She Postcrosses too but does not do private swaps. I would tell her about cards that I had received  and she would ask me to scan it so she could see and it rarely happened. One day I just sat down and took the plunge into the blogging world. I forgot how much I liked to write - as a stay at home Mom the grocery list and notes to the teachers are about the extent of my writing. So far, so good.

A few weeks ago one of the pages I follow on Facebook asked if you blogged. I was one of many people who answered and was elated for the one day as my readership went from my sister and the odd friend to strangers and several of them to boot - yeah me!

One such person who stopped by was Donna from Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. Why she came back - well we would have to ask her LOL! She has left some nice comments along the way and in doing so let me know that someone was reading this thing. Last week she asked if she could send me a card and of course, I said yes.

Today I received this card from her. It is fantastic! She writes that her friend painted this picture to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. While the subject is a serious one, the colours and design on this card are super bright and fun. More of her friend Shelagh's work can be found here. I so appreciate Donna taking the time to send this to me, once again making the big world that much smaller and friendlier. Who knows maybe she will get hooked on Postcrossing too!!!

    1. You can always start slow and do a postcard at a time. Trust me when you see a little corner of a card peaking out sandwhiched between the gas, phone, you name it bill it will make you glad you picked up the mail :)
