The Best Things in Life are Handmade

This is the new set of rubber cut and hand-stamped postcards I've made this month. These lines from the documentary Beautiful Losers explain the wonderful emotions/feelings I've had while creating the postcards:

“I think as a child you’re always drawing, coloring, and doing crafts.  And that is totally normal, and seems to be what you do as a kid.  And I think what, kind of the weird tragedy is, you become an adult, you “grow up” and lose that.  You stop creating, you stop involving yourself in the joy of color and creation.  I just feel like I was lucky enough to never really lose that.” Ed Templeton

I also revisited my old blog, Carte Postale. This is where I used to keep my collection of gouache & watercolor prints back in 2010. It all started when my sister gave me a set of blank postcards she got from a flea market abroad. It was also the time I really missed my Mexican best friend, Noemi. So, I sent her the first ever Carte Postale. Unfortunately, the card never arrived to Mexico. I'd never find out why.

Forgetting the password of my then blog account made me forget about creating more cards for Carte Postale altogether.

I'm looking forward to this Saturday's Craft Soirée! :) My Thursday will be dedicated to creating jewelry, postcards, and Hey Kessy samplers.

Btw, you can check out the other gouache and watercolor postcards here.
