August Update

Thank you to everyone who has continued to send me updates on their F&F Postcards since my last post.  I owe a backlog of ‘thank you’ postcards & zines and am struggling to catch up.

Sadly, I think it is time to admit defeat and bring this project to a close.  Again, thank you to all who have taken part.  It was fun! 🙂

Update March 2018: If you are a fan of mail art and postal crafts, please check out my updated website for details of my current stamp art projects.


July Update

Apologies for recent lack of updates to the blog. Although some update pics have been received, I am currently struggling to make time for regular posting around other commitments.  Hopefully normal service will resume in the near future.  Please bear with me!

May Summary

In May 2014:

  • 5 Friends & Faux Postcards were sent out (from an overall total of 110), travelling to the Netherlands, and USA.
  • 8 Travelogs were posted (including story-so-far photos)…
  • …and @TangleCrafts on Twitter has been featuring a daily Artistamp of the Day, from the Friends & Faux archive – this will be ongoing for a while longer.

I’m afraid the admin of keeping on top of all the all the updates has been escaping me a little lately, so I’m currently working on ways to streamline the process. Please bear with me if you send in an update – I will get back to you!

If a Friends & Faux Postcard passes through your hands, please submit a tracking form to help us track where it has been & where it is going next!

F&F Travelog #67.1

FF67.1F&F #67 apparently took the scenic route to visit Philip Lerche in Ohio!  It arrived a mere 3 months after despatch, bearing a (large!) Royal Mail label regarding insufficient postage (I frequently make up postage amounts using multiple smaller value (vintage) stamps, so it is possible/probable that I miscalculated by a penny or two, resulting in this slight hiccup!).  Still, at least this postcard definitely has a story to tell from its travels, and it has barely got started yet! 😉  Its next stop is with Ja in Iowa…  (Tracking details)

F&F #25.7 – another homer!

FF25.7FF25.1After doing the local rounds in Derby, F&F #25 continued its journey with Cheetarah Cheda in Leiden (the Netherlands).  Sadly, the very first artistamp added (by internationally acclaimed photographer John Blakemore) did not survive transit from UK to the Netherlands, but here it is, in all its glory:
