Over the past few weeks I’ve enjoyed receiving postcards from various artists thanks to Kat’s wonderful Liberate Your Art annual postcard swap, and now we are sharing our experience and cards on a bloghop over several days.
First to arrive was this wonderful seascape from David Morel
then a fabulous bird from Kate
and some seagulls from Patricia
a week later Charlotte’s celebration of the Year of the Horse arrived
followed by the disco queen collaged bird from Lisa
and then Kat’s beautiful autumn leaves
All sitting on my bookshelf and prompting a smile when I walk past them. Thank you Kat for organising this lovely swap and to all the artists whose cards I received.
I loved receiving the cards and making contact with each person and visiting new blogs and photo collections. I really appreciate the new connections from the liberated art.
But my experience has not been 100%. I can’t help feeling disappointed that I have not received a single contact from people who received my cards. Last year I heard from 2 of the 5 and was disappointed. This year I have not heard from any of them.
Am I wrong in expecting an e-mail from the people who receive my cards? I’m interested in the broader practice – if you participated in the swap, how many acknowledgment e-mails did you receive?
