Postcard Exchange 2012 & 2013

I've participated in the Postcard Exchange the last two years as a single swapper (instead of a Troop) and have greatly enjoyed it.

Remember that the exchange starts in October and sign ups start a few months before!  If you haven't participated before, it's basically a Thinking Day swap for troops/groups all over the world to exchange information and celebrate Thinking Day.  You can participate by actually trading postcards or by trading e-cards. There's even a different patch each year you can order for participating (and who doesn't love patches?)

Every group seems to have different goals in their trading as some groups want one postcard from every state, some want to find another girl with the same first name as each of their girls, and last year some wanted 100 cards for the Girl Scout 100th anniversary.  I personally want only Girl Scout themed cards and I send Girl Scout themed ones in return.

Here are the card's I've receive the last couple years:

The Patch:

The card I sent (I'm from Texas so I put a picture of our flag, cacti, a sunset in west Texas, me helping a girl at camp, and the last troop I volunteered with.):

All the cards I received:

And my favorite is this postcard from Savannah:

The Patch:

The card I sent:
Hmm, I can't seem to find it right now...

All the cards I received:

 It seems a few didn't understand what I meant when I said "Girl Scout/Girl Guide themed cards". I think I'll have to explain myself better next year:

Hope to see you there next year!
