Any thread dedicated to discuss coloring cards? To list coloring postcard book available at store? And most importantly to show our coloring by showing photos? :sweat_smile:
Recently I have too many idle times. I have been busy coloring postcard books that I bought 2 years ago :sweat_smile:

There’s only this one in the directory:

Postcards to colour

But it could be that there are more topics that I don’t know about. You could open a new topic as well. :slight_smile:

@Feuerstuhl
Thank you for putting the link to my new tag idea of Mail Art :slight_smile: but I wonder if people generally come here to check it out ? :thinking:

A few seem to do it. Everyone who is interested in handmade and mail art can watch this topic and be informed of all new additions to the directory. I have mentioned this possibility in the first post of this topic and some seem to do it.
There are numbers to indicate how often the link has been used if you scroll up a little in this topic. And those are only the direct clicks. If you open the link in a different window, it is not counted. So, I think the real number is probably a little higher. Of course, just because someone reads the post, maybe even clicks the link to see what it is about, doesn’t necessarily mean that they participate in the end.
