Lovely! Thanks for sharing

So nice! I love projects (and enthusiastic people) like this!

I stumbled on this report today — the project seems quite nice! I think the submissions for it might have closed in the meantime though, since the exhibition takes place this month.

An interesting postcard project from Canada!

History professors at Western University have a project helping connect Canadians with history by sending recreated postcards from the First World War to the same address from more than 100 years ago.

She asked me to speak about Postcrossing at the next Capital Postcard Club meeting next week. The club may be hosting a Postcrossing meetup at an upcoming stamp show. We are still working with the stamp show organizers.

A local art gallery is celebrating their 10 year anniversary. To celebrate the gallery owner made a gown of postcards she had printed over the years to promote shows at her gallery. If you watch the video you can see the gown at the end. Highlandtown Gallery on Instagram: "Our 10th Anniversary Show continues through February. Join us on 2/2 from 5-8 or shop online anytime. Thanks to @wjztv for the feature this morning! #Highlandtown gallery #1FridayArtWalk #IHeartHighlandtown #WJZT #BaltimoreArtEvent #HighlandtownArtsDistrict #highlandtownartwalk"
