Family Thanksgiving Thursday & Casual Leftovers Friday has come to an end. I like to absorb the warm of this holiday, savor the moments and reflect on blessings. If you are on this mailing list - I thank you, for listening to me talk about postcards, for purchasing, sending and receiving postcards, and taking a chance on me.
This has been a big year for subtle changes to the postcard series and the launch of some wonderful partners. I revised the packaging to allow for a better "look" at the collections and the ability to save on postage. This small change has prompted free shipping. This postcard gal is thankful for the photographers and the wonderful folks at Finger Lakes Press in Auburn NY for taking this walk with me. I am thankful for Lucian Torous for assisting with website design and marketing.
The Postcard Project took a huge leap this year partnering with The Strong and Oak Hill Country Club. Rochester was bursting with playful excitement this year with The Strong's expansion and the PGA at Oak Hill. What an honor to work with them on postcard booklets. So thankful that Steve Dubnik, President and CEO of the museum, read the postcard that I sent him last January. I am grateful to David Sheridan for "wedging" my way into the Pro Shop at Oak Hill and Andrew Blatnik for assisting with all the details to this beautiful 18 postcard set. Again, what a year.
So, we come to a close of 2023. Proceeds from postcards sales help support two non-profits that are doing so much good: Auburn Education Foundation and the Finger Lakes Land Trust. People will often ask me "What is the project?" It started out as an intentional and simple way for me to reconnect with friends and family. It morphed into a business project but with the same simple intent to spread smiles with postcards. Now it has pivoted to sharing, not only the joy of the postcard exchange but sharing proceeds in a meaningful and important way.
