April of Designs Of Artisan Blog created a Handmade Postcard Swap event last November. I was pretty excited about it since a month before that I just joined Postcrossing (I sent ready-made postcards for that though). Snail mail is still the best. Most especially if they are handmade. I'm thankful for those people who still find meaning in snail mails! :)
We have to make two postcards for two people and we'll receive two from them as well. Although I am not so artsy enough, I managed to create something handmade. I wanted to paint but the idea of making a design made up of cut outs would be lovely (also because I suck at painting, haha). So, I decided to create a hot air balloon-inspired card for Rochelle and Aya.
Also, at the back of the postcard, I wrote a haiku about hot air balloons.
Slowly going high
up across the sunny sky.
Watch birds travel by.
I hope someday I could ride in a hot air balloon and watch over the world like a boss. :p
P.S. Merry Christmas!! :)
