Postcard Friendship Friday

Here it is the last day of school and thinking about the summer ahead made me think of past summers with my children.

Each year for 7 years, my 3 children and myself went for a week to Haliburton School of the Arts. While there we each went to a different arts course during the day and then met at the end of the day to share our day, swim and enjoy cottage life.

One of the courses my daughter ( at age 9) took was a printmaking course and she produced some lovely postcards. She made stacks and I still have, and occasionally use, some of them.

Somehow I missed you last Friday! I'm so glad you stopped by my blog so I could rectify that oversight. I love the handmade postcards idea. Do you make Artist Trading Cards too?
