Due for Another Trip to the Post Office

The postcards that I was expecting were finally delivered last week. The sad thing about it was that they arrived at the local post office around first week of May and they were only delivered after two weeks. It seems that our local post office still hasn’t changed their system and I don’t know why it would take that long before they deliver the mail. Even the results of the college entrance exam of our eldest was delivered late. Good thing we were able to confirm sooner (about 3 days after the exam was taken) through the schools’ website that my son indeed passed their exams.

The postcards were from fellow Postcrossing members from Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Romania and Germany:

 

I will be sending postcards this week (or if not next week), hopefully by that time more postcards will arrive for me:

Going Back to an Old Hobby

I am trying to become active at Postcrossing again. It has been months since I last mailed a postcard. Fortunately we were able to buy more postcards and more stamps. We were able to mail them earlier this week but since most offices are closed because it’s the Holy Week, it would probably take longer than usual for the postcards to arrive. I’m already excited about receiving postcards a few weeks from now. Hopefully I can become an active postcrosser again and have more postcards to add to my collection.

I Have Finally Joined Postcrossing !

I have mentioned before that I plan to put up another blog that will serve as a home for my new hobby, collecting postcards. My husband is also excited about it since he will also get to feature his coin and stamp collection.

The blog, Creations & Collections, has finally been launched and so far , we have made a couple of posts about the postcards that I have received and the new commemorative stamps that has been added to my husband’s collection.

I have been swapping postcards with the other moms from PMC and so far, I have sent and received quite a number of them. A couple of days ago, I received a total of six postcards and I can’t wait to make a blog post on each of them. I have so far made a post for three of them.

It was also through the other moms from PMC that I have learned about PostCrossing. It is a site wherein a member gets to send and receive postcards from random members from anywhere in the world.

Initially, a new member like me is allowed to send five postcards. I was assigned to send postcards to members from Taiwan, Finland, New Zealand, USA and Russia. My husband was suppose to mail them today but it has been raining so hard since yesterday that he wasn’t able to leave the house.

Receiving postcards from different parts of the world is also a great way to learn about the cultures of various countries. I am looking forward to receiving postcards from other members ; it’s like taking a peek of what their country has to offer.
