It is that time of year again where the Love Notes Postcard project is in full bloom. Hosting this project is one of my favorite things to do. I still remember the moment the idea came to life. I was talking to Dustin about how I wanted a way to bring people from all over the world together. Something easy and tangible. I am a lover of snail mail and a collector of postcards. When Dustin suggested doing something with postcards my heart opened up.
What I love about postcards is they feel inviting. The small writing space is less intimidating and you don't feel like you have to write a huge story. One simple line is all it takes to brighten someones day.
What I also love about postcards is how they travel through so many hands before arriving at the final destination and along the way whoever touches them may also be affected by the words because they are visible. It feels like magic to me. Touching lives on it's journey and you will never know the impact that it has had.
When I first dreamed up this project I was only thinking of store bought postcards. I never imagined the love and creativity that some people would pour in, creating little works of art. It is amazing to see how much thought and kindness goes into this project.
And because I did't want people to feel like they were left hanging with what to write I provide a writing prompt each week. The words people share are personal. They are filed with love and deep heart opening. Sometimes people receive the words they most needed to hear, and that makes me smile. A dear soul, who has participated in this project more times than I can count has shared a bit of her writing from the first weeks prompt

I invite you to pop over to Paula Bogdans blog and be blown away by her writing and her beautiful creations.
I am blown away at how individuals open up to strangers. How they pour their heart into the words and thought into the postcard they send. It is true that one small postcard sent through the mail can change someone day. The Love Notes Postcard Project is proof of this.
