New obsessions and Frida

I have a new obsession. You heard me talking about ATCs for All (AFA) forum before where I trade my ATCs and join swaps but then I found SwapBot.

It's a trading site where you sign up for all kinds of swaps not just ATCs, some are not even art related and your swap partner is computer generated. (I don't know if I phrased this right but you get the point, right?) It's a little more risky but the novelty of it is still stuck with me for now.

Then I found Postcrossing where you mail postcards to random people around the world who's addresses are also computer generated so they are as random as they can get. :)

So, I'm into mailing postcards now. But here's the problem. I feel like postcards are near extinction. The only place I could find them was at the post office and at a newsstand but the variety was so poor it was ridiculous. I have to go on the hunt for postcards now. :)

This photo though is of Frida ATC.

  13. A very sweet picture of Frida. I wonder what she would think of it! Very cleverly done to merge the lovely face with a real feeling of Frida.
    I can never resist buying postcards in art galleries.

  15. I've looked in to Swapbot and even joined at one point, however have never made the time to be part of it. I know lots of people love it. LOVE your Frida ATC. I have one of yours and she is wonderful - I enjoy it so much. As far as postcards goes, I have taken to making my own which is loads of fun. Have fun. hugs, and thanks for dropping around to my blog. Things have been pretty sparse over there lately. Hoping it will pick up in a week or two. I'm in the middle of a huge project. Take care. Have fun. hugs, Donna

  17. I collect Frida ACEO! If you want to swap with me? She is lovely!
    Also, about the postcards, do you have mini-marts like 7-11 or those small by a gas station? Usually those have a bunch, specially if they are by a tourist spot.
    I wold be more than happy to send you a bunch if you want!

  22. SHE. is. adorable! I love your Frida and the fact that you are sending out postcards - it is such a cool concept! Have you considered looking for postcards in a office supply store? they often sell them in a pack. Good luck and keep inspiring us all :))) xoxo

  23. I did SwapBot for about a year. I found I really had to keep track of when I received items and such. It was fun for a while :)

    You crack me up....you always need to be "doing" something...I love that about you ;)
