I’m probably being overly optimistic with the blogpost title, but it’s stopped raining this Saturday, and the sun is being lazy, hiding behind some clouds. We were pelted with rain and wind yesterday as you can see from the view from my window above taken late Friday and it rained all night. It’s just nature taking care of us again, making sure we have enough water to sustain spring into summer. Thankfully — at least in our area, that is — we didn’t have an over-abundance of mother nature’s blessing.
I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend. Hoping to create a few pieces, and sending off some Zentangled Mail Art from Swap-bot that you can read more about at my craft blog, Gotham Chick, once I’m able to post (link to be supplied when the post is uploaded…). I was supposed to mail it out this Saturday, but I ended up leaving my ‘inserts’ in the office. (Mailing on Monday then!
I did my postcard giveaway video in connection with some lenticular (3D) postcards I picked up from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) which I had picked up this week. I got so excited seeing the new postcards displayed on their rack when I hopped over the museum shop before meeting up for the ride home, I had to grab a copy plus an extra before they ran out. I had advertised the giveaway at our Postcrossing Philippines Facebook group and I promised the drawing would be my Saturday. I wanted to show that it was all done above board, so the video pertaining to the actual drawing is straight-through, uncut, so there are no substitutions, cuts or what-not. All fair! =) I’m sending the winner’s postcard prize (I had them choose the artist) via snail mail with some extra goodies. Playing postcard santa!
I guess now that THAT’s done, I can look at maybe beginning another Philippine Map hand-drawn postcard before the weekend ends. (I currently have five finished which I am dying to post but scanning the PC has been too much trouble. I will try again next week.)
So here’s the video I worked on this evening. I’m totally bushed after editing it and putting music to it, so no, you don’t have to bear with my narration/spiel. It was fun to make, though.
If you’re interested to get any of the postcards in the video, please e-mail me at postcardmailbox at gmail.com.
