Posts Cards From The Edge: Part Two

Way back on January 20th I asked if anybody out there in blog land would like to exchange postcards because my half cube at work was a little dull looking.



I've taken about four pictures of my wall since then, but each time I did I would get home and find another one waiting for me. Out of 60-ish responses I received forty postcards, not bad.


While I love and appreciate all of them, there was one special one I received that didn't get a pin jabbed through it. And no, I'm not referring to the black and white one up on the top right from Salt Lake City, UTah, though that one is pretty awesome. Wait, what did you think that meant? Anyway, you can see it on the back drop of my screen, where all my sensitive client information would be if I hadn't remembered to hit 'desktop' before taking the picture.


Bella Sinclair of Bella Sinclair Doodlespot made me a picture of my three little Jedi's complete with a cardboard sign. Click on it for full effect. That one got it's own frame. Check out her page if you get a chance, her artwork is fantastic.


So thanks to everybody who participated, I really appreciated it.

  3. That artwork is awesome! I see the Dymaxion House up there. Apparently they actually are going to make them now, as they are pretty much hurricane proof, for places like Haiti.

  8. WAHOO! Looks beautiful! Surely you have the most awesomest cube in the lot now?!?

  9. That is the best post card I've ever seen.

    And I do believe I see a little Cleveland up there. Glad it made its way North safely. BTW, I completely forgot what a PITA it is to send a package outside the US. You might get a box some time in the next year or so, if it makes it across the border. I forgot what was inside by the time I filled out the customs paperwork...

  11. So sorry I haven't been around lately and missed this. I don't think I could top the Salt Lake City Utah postcard though. The postcard idea was very cool and your cube looks awesome. Love the desktop art!

  15. SLUT!

    But seriously (HA!) that Jedi one is beyond cute and completely frame worthy. She did an amazing job and I am completely jealous now (*sniff*)

    ReplyDelete
  16. But of course the SLUT had to be poked.

    You've got a great looking wall there!
    Thanks for the blog love. :D

  19. First of all, the drawing of your little Jedi masters is too awesome for words.

    Secondly, I am such a slacker. I will send a postcard to you post-haste.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nice looking wall, my friend. Great way to get some art up there!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That card is AWESOME!! I see mine down there at the bottom. My older kids were sitting next to me while reading this post and all James could think to ask me was "How does he know you?". Goofy kid.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That. Is. Wicked. Awesome.

    And I found mine! It's right above the drawing! :) I feel so special!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is so cute! Beats the crap out of my jockey underpants. Uh...that didn't come out right. Make that Jockey underpants keyrings. Okay, that is not that much better. Make that the Library of Congress postcard. I'm pretty sure I sent that one.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I see mine on your wall and I have the one you sent setting on top of my PC. That artwork with the kids is great...Finn looks awesome! That whole postcard thing was a pretty cool idea.

    ReplyDelete
  25. How the hell did I miss the post about exchanging post cards? Seriously? I'm going to send you one just for shits and giggles... Too bad you've already got a SL,UT one up there!

    ReplyDelete
  26. You're having a go at me, aren't you???

    I know, I didn't send it. But I will. Just you wait...

    Uh...can you send your address again?

    What?

    And I might see you; Canada is safe from a mushroom radiation fallout zapping.

  27. Dammit! It's coming... for real this time.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm sending you a postcard in my mind. I'm far too lazy to travel to the nearest post office for stamps.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is awesome. Going to check out her stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Damnit, postcards. I'll get to it one of these years.

    Love the one of the boys, that is so effing awesome. Your desk looks loved.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That's a great area! That's one thing I miss about traveling into an office to work (as I work from home now) is that I knew exactly what my work surface was going to look like, and if it was messy, I could only blame myself.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I also really like the one with the big green monster. And look at you with your healthy snack!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Urgh! i wanted to do this, but have yet to procure a local postcard. I guess we could make one, but the competition seems a bit stiff. My kids can wad chewed gum to a piece of paper, would that count?

    ReplyDelete
  34. A post card exchange is a great idea. I like the Salt Lake one, pretty funny.
