Our first meet up was a great success! We had about 17 people attend; some recognizable faces and some new, including some young snail mailers! We swapped cards, talked about our collections, signed up a few new users to Postcrossing and held a couple giveaways.
We met at the Blue Rooster Cafe & Studio in Pilot Butte (which is just outside Regina). They were the perfect meet up spot not only for their set up but also their friendly service and awesome food & drinks :P
Our meet up cards went fast. We are sending some to Germany, India, Belarus, Solvakia, Austria, France and Canada. It was fun to have everyone sign the cards that will be going out into the world and we had a lot of requests for our limited edition cards.
I had some of my favourite cards on display.
We brought lots of supplies, including stickers, washi tape, pens/markers and rubber stamps. Anglea of Sparkling Medusa had a great selection of notecards/postcards for us to buy as well. I love showing off her photography.
Thanks to everyone who came out to make it such a fun evening and time flew by! We hope to have another meet up again in the future.
