my first swap

postcard swap photo
Originally uploaded by kmmcclain.

I'm finally getting around to posting a photo of one of the postcards I made for the postcard swap (hosted by Myra). The postcards had to be postmarked by last Saturday, April 30th, so I spent most of last Friday evening and Saturday morning working furiously to finish mine in time. I dyed paper towels (a new endeavor) and then collaged them over a word collage (all the places that I was sending my postcards to) -- an idea I got from this magazine. They didn't turn out exactly like I had hoped, but that's mostly because I ran out of time. For my first attempt of doing something crafty in a long time, I was pleased.

Isn't blogging grand? You get to share cool things; I had never heard of this magazine before you linked to it.
