The Postcard Project, Update

I am STILL getting postcards, and they are just fabulous!  What an outpouring of creativity and caring response, from ALL over the world.  We're at about 2000 now, and I'm a little behind on scanning and posting, though most of them are up in the Facebook albums and in my online Galleries.  I'll get caught up in the next few days. 
The USPS will make a decision in early 2014 about the fate of our post office.  The data from 2013, which includes volume of mail, will count towards this decision, so any mail coming in this year makes a difference.  YOU HAVE MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE ALREADY!!!  For which all of us in Rupert are grateful.  I read every card, and wish I could respond to every one individually, but there are so many that I'd have to quit my day job (teaching workshops and making art) to do so!  My chickens are particularly grateful for all the chicken-themed cards and those that acknowledge them as an integral part of the postal service (they certainly consider themselves indispensable to the distribution of mail in Rupert).

Stay tuned  for another Fresh Paint Friday, posting sometime tomorrow.

  2. Even though I didn't send a postcard (I still can, though), I'm happy about the outpouring from all over the world!
