Emilie is taking part in MailArt365, like me, and that is how she came to find Orphaned Postcard Project. She also has a blog featuring lots of mail and she has a brand new "postcard adoption project," which I think will be lots of fun. I'm thrilled that OPP has inspired another mail project!
Emilie has a box of postcards featuring covers from Penguin Books (the publisher, not books about penguins). I adopted Catcher in the Rye, and I'm looking forward to writing about the book and sending it back to Emilie. But, people don't have to have read the books to adopt a postcard ... there are some obscure titles ... so head on over and pick a book cover to adopt!
And this mapcard ... this mapcard of Delaware was adopted because Emilie felt sorry for poor Delaware. I've had Delaware"orphans" waiting for adoption for three years, and Emilie is the first to adopt a card from that state.
Emilie grew up in Maryland, close to the Delaware border. She writes that region of Delaware is known for being more relaxed than the rest of the state. In fact, Emilie remembers a sign that says, "Welcome to Lower Slower Delaware."
