So, the swap called for 2 blank note cards and a note, little and easy – fits in the restrictive Royal Mail letter size, and I have so many note cards I should just send them never mind swapping them for different ones!
Sent to USA:
3 note cards just to be sure I sent something the recipient liked, sent in an ‘East of India’ paper bag with some star confetti. And a note, which I interpreted as more than the usual I hope you like this swap/ are having a good day type of thing, so I wrote a short letter about whatever random things came to mind. The recipient mentioned a specific thank you for the note so I think it was worth the effort, but I didn’t get the same back.
Received from Singapore:
A couple of pretty note cards, a map postcard or bookmark, and the little note (top right). I suppose I was hoping for more somehow, maybe my excitement to receive from anywhere but USA at the moment built it up too much 🙂 but they’ll get sent or swapped onwards – butterflies seems to be a reoccurring like at the moment. And I really should write more of my letters using my note card stash!
