mailing out some merry splotch monster postcards today!

I've always loved postcards, and the concept of getting a short but sweet message in the mail, with an image on the front side of the card. It's a dying breed, the postcard, so getting and sending them makes it all the more special. I've been flirting with the idea of doing more Splotch Monster-related postcards lately, through workshops and through my own work, so I thought, why not mail out a bunch of the 5" x 7" Holiday and Christmas-inspired Splotch Monsters I've been working on throughout the month of December? I have to say, it's been fun turning them over, writing a message, the addresses of friends and family, and slapping on a stamp, before sending the cards off on their merry little way. We get so much junk in the mail these days, why not send something that will hopefully bring a smile to someone's face?
