summer postcard club

By chance i happened upon Marceline's post 

This girl is very impressive,she's the owner of Folksy's oldest shop.
Read all about it here -

I collided with Marceline's little act of internet sweetness just at the right time.
long-term illness has made glueing and sticking hardly a priority- apart from in my imagination.
I'm usually feeling overwhelmed by all the things I want to make;by the time I've thought about them and tried to decide where to start I'm quite worn out.
Here's where a small (but quite big for me) project with some commitment provided a chance to lose myself in hunting out postcards and selecting images that will please the recipients.
I found myself joyfully using far too big scissors and hoping the pritt stick would hold up for international air travel.
