January PostFun App Swaps 2023 👈(゚ヮ゚👈)


    Seems like all my postcards are from PostFun for January. I will admit, Many of the same cards go out for my PostFun exchanges. I have such a surplus of the Empress Lily still. I do not make a habit of sending the same card to the same people.     I do vary my Pen Pal Cards. But for one time exchanges, the WDW classic is my go-to card. That one & my personal print on demand designs. I like them, they are uplifting to me, so I hope they spread a little sunshine along the way.  My DHubby mails them for me, so I think they all ship out from the same 📮 mailbox, but one can never tell with a grown man.  😂 

    This month I went back to my PostFun app to check any unregistered cards here in the US. Then I resent seeing if the recipient might respond by registering the card. I’ve done this before with great success. Maybe the first card was lost in the post, or life challenges just did not allow them the opportunity to get to it. Either way, it’s been a great surprise to find that someone did respond to a 2nd card by registering it & also a quick card back in the post.  PostFun people are genuinely lovely correspondence partners. 
    This week though the 2nd card experiment had another result. As you see below, my card returned to me with the bright yellow returned to sender, No recipient found at that address.  It was a little sad for a moment. Of course, hoping that all is well with them.  It also leaves my mind at rest tho regarding the previous card being registered.  Not a big deal, just a resolution. The postal service machinery does not treat our correspondence kindly.  Hoping someday a Postmaster will own up to this negative default to make a change.
Anywho, Lets look at some postcards.  I do have a couple nice ones this month. 
    Many PostFun exchanges lead to Pen Pals if you wish. Many include an address to write back. Some are just a simple note of Thanks or well wishes.  These always bring a smile.  I get a kick out of the cards that ask questions with no way to write back with a response.  Truly a comical moment that brings a good laugh.  Every Postcard is precious to me. Every connection, if for a moment or a lifetime. To all the wonderful people out there who give tirelessly, I appreciate your kindness & effort. 

Thank you so much for sharing yourself.

Look at this poor ol beat up card

Things are looking up 👆

    The post office box has been picking up lately.  It’s on the way to town so when DHubby and I are finished with our grocery shopping we drop by to pick up the mail.  It’s a wonderful feeling, the excitement of wonder. “Is there going to be anything in the box this week” has been replaced with “I wonder who wrote us this time.” Since we also are employed FULL TIME with too much overtime, It can be challenging to keep up with the pursuits of our passion. Papi also has a couple hobbies that keep us occupied.

     My postcard blog is running way behind.  So for a few weeks, I may just post what has arrived and shipped out lately instead of trying to wait to write an article to go with them.  It’s the cards themselves that what are bringing the joy in the first place.  It’s a shame to not get them shared in a timely manner.  Then I may also have a few minutes to work on the sales pages and postcards shops I’m hoping to get set up.  I am also trying to get stream live on different platforms while playing with my postcard collection to keep people current with the progress.  You can catch the clips on Twitch or YouTube Shorts.  Let’s see how it goes and roll with what works.  

    Here is what came in and left through October, besides the RAoC Forms.

PostFun is another way to share.

Exploring all the different avenues when traveling is pretty normal for the adventurous family we come from.  Tales of a touch of gypsy blood, and many destinations to have crossed our path. Now with less travel time, my virtual adventures have been learning how to fit into the deltiology community, exploring all the avenues technology combines with snail mail. 
A random search in Google Play Store, [I’m always putting the keyword postcard into any search bar I can find]  just to see what might come up. I think I was looking for a postcrossing app without any luck, so It was time to shorten the query down to just “post.” or “postcard”.
Finding PostFun was an exciting day for me. The realization that there are other postcard exchange communities has put me in a whirlwind to find more and document as many as possible.  It’s the inspiration for building a resource page, and maybe onto a database, so that others can easily find places to look for postcard art, postcard swaps, any and everything postcard, old and new.  
I must admit, our family is getting swept up in the rush of discovering everything postcard.  Hope you are enjoying the travels you take with postcards as well. 

These are some of my latest Sends and Receives from PostFun App.

First Received Card
Note they use a postcard ID which is fun to register when received.
Somewhere I left the Photo side, I cannot find it. Maybe L will scan it in the comments
Maybe She knew what was coming in the post?
Not all of them arrive.

One of the things, from this point on, I’ve been working on and refining a logo signal for my Mobile Media Mania business. Here next to the Hola Hola 👋  we can watch the progression of the Swan Palm Wave.  Lakeland is known as Swan City from the Swans that were gifted from the Queen. I thought it would be cool to fashion it like a swan waving hello, or hola like I always do online.  

There were quite a few of the WDW Empress Lily that were sent on these PostFun cards. It’s been a challenge to figure out how to share them and use them up without becoming a nuisance with the repetition of them.  Fortunately, there is a lovely local artist that is also selling postcards. More about her art in another episode.  LKLDlense definitely has an eye, and shows off the most beautiful aspects of Lakeland.

More Swans here


Lakeland is also famous for the Southgate Arch. One of the early Publix locations began here as well. This is hallowed grown in Lakeland.  Several of these precious Southgate photograph postcards have passed through the snailmail. There are various more waiting to find a new home.  

Hopefully, these brief stories encourage you to take a moment, put a stamp and address on a postcard to send it off.  If you struggle to find someone to send it to, Postfun is very enjoyable postcard fun.
