Today’s post comes from Samantha Wanger of Canada. Like Karen, Samantha is someone I have never met, however we say hello often via twitter. I was very excited when Samantha same she would be a guest artist, because she was my first international address! Yup that’s right… this project has gone international and I now have many others to send postcards to since then. Getting back to it though, Sam is a self described twenty-something graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree. She bakes, she exercises, she creates and spends some time around the inter-webs. Most importantly she has created an awesome yellow postcard that made it’s way to Truckee, CA from Vancouver, Canada.

From Samantha, “this postcard is a quote from a really amazing politician in Canada who passed away recently. The quote is taken from his final letter to Canadians. – Jack Layton 1950-2011″
It was like Brittany read my mind. I have wanted to let loose and do a crazy doodle similar to this one, but I felt I had to uphold my life themed illustration or type sayings. Thank you Brit, for doing what I could not. Brit like Lawren, is a new mom! I am pretty sure little Griffles might just be the cutest kid I have ever met and that is saying a lot since I have only seen him once! The doodles were absolutely perfect, because with out even reading the explanation I knew why. That’s what makes us friends. Love you lady.

In Brittany’s Words: “Now that I’m a mom, I’ve realized I have no time for a creative outlet. These doodles are what I do when I’m one the phone, writing a grocery list, etc.”
Jenn’s postcard immediately made me think of fall. Pumpkins are so great and it made me think of these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that I whipped up multiple times last year. I might just have to carve up a pumpkin or two when I get back after seeing this card. Although, I don’t think I can find a pumpkin quite as large as Jenn dreamed up.
