home-made postcards from lapland.

lately I have some spare time to dedicate to one of my favourite activities: the writing and decorating of letters and postcards - on rainy days especially. I have been preparing a few hand-made postcards with the photographs I have taken in Kilpisjärvi - I think my friends will be happy to get them via snail mail.
home-made postcards from Lapland:

✻ I have chosen my favourite 8 photographs among all I have taken.

✻ in my opinion the best thing about home-made postcards is that there is nothing perfect nor clean about them.
I was quite disappointed to hear that all the tables for the Christmas Market in TAIK were already booked - I would have loved to bring some of these home-made postcards. last year I brought twenty of my Christmas Bird Cards and sold them all for 50 cents each - it is not a question of money but it makes me happy to see people like the little things I make!

  3. Wow Polly I absolutely love these! I would buy some from you if you sold them! The images are gorgeous, especially in circle form. I actually just completed making a christmas postcard set for my shop, but I had it printed for me. I wish I could find a more economical way to print them though- what methods do you use when making your postcards?
    Keep up the beautiful work! x

    I just noticed that in Kääntöpaikka in Arabia, there will be a christmas crafts sale on Dec 9. http://artova.fi/kaantopaikka/ajankohtaista/3270-kaantopaikan-joulumyyjaiset
    Maybe you could apply for a table there?
