Are you going to set a theme or give some sort of guidelines, Elisabeth?  I find it useful to have a bit of a nudge ... cuts down on time spent staring at a blank sheet of paper.  :)

Is "postcard" too general?  If so, how about postcard including your favorite word, phrase, or quote?  The postcard could be handmade and the calligraphy on the front as the design, or it could be store bought with the calligraphy as the message.  Does that work?

I am so busy, but I loved the last broad pen exchange Linda hosted. It is so cool to see them arrive in my hands.

Me too then. Do I need to message you?

I've modified the OP to include the details of the swap.  Assuming I get everyone's addresses by July 30, I will email you the addresses of the people in your group on July 31.

I'm so excited people want to do this swap!   :)

Since Elisabeth has organised this, I think it's only fair that she should get a card from everybody irrespective of group.

Elisabeth, please count me in. My broad pen is atrocious, but I think this will be good motivation to revisit. Thank you for organizing!

My address is a P.O. Box, so I don't mind sharing it here. :)

I agree wholeheartedly.

Mine went out on Saturday and I have received several in the mail already!  I just listed to Michael Sull speak at a seminar at the SF Pen Show and as a bonus, he had a binder full of letters to and from penmen we could look at.  It was amazing!  Now, I want to start doing something like that myself, but I think I will use a 12 x 12 scrapbook album.  A little less portable, but then I can probably put envelopes and letters on the same page.  Anyway, I'm so excited to put these cards in as my first examples of calligraphy and penmanship (along with my daughter's name written by Michael Sull!).

I mailed mine out on Monday and have received cards from Janice and Ellen so far.

Elisabeth - what a great idea for keeping letters. I think I will start a similar folder/binder. I now feel like I should have put more effort into mine if it is going to be saved :-) I hope you like it though.
