Have you heard of this? You sign up and get addresses from all over the world to send postcards to.  I mean, not just randomly, but to people who have signed up.  Once you send some and they get received, then your address goes into the mix and someone will send you a postcard!  Cool!  It's kind of a simplified version of penpals.  I like it because it gives me an excuse to draw/doodle/Zentangle on a little canvas.  Then I send it to someone and make them happy! 

Check it out, my first postcard, here it is:

The person I sent to was a teenage boy in Poland.  And he just received it and here's the comment he left about it:

"Dear Carrie. Your postcard is amazing. I love your drawing, your stamps, the way you write 'M' in my name and also this stamp with Marge. It's very unusual card. You are a great artist. It's the best looking card I've recieved. Thanks a lot. Best wishes. Mateusz"
I used a Simpsons stamp, so that's what he's talking about with "Marge."  Pretty nice, huh?  It's so gratifying when people like my art!

Anyway, check out Postcrossing, it's a pretty neato idea.

Wow, that's so cool that your first postcrossing postcard was received already. Congratulations! And of course he loved it, why wouldn't he? The Simpson's stamp was a nice touch. And I know what you mean how it's so gratifying when someone appreciates something you made. Way to go!
