VeganMoFo: Postcard Swap

IMG_0182

One of my favorite bloggers, Cadry of Cadry’s Kitchen came up with a great idea for this years VeganMoFo…a postcard swap! Any one could join and all you had to do was send a postcard or letter to someone else. I remember the joy of getting a card, letter or invitation in the mail when I was younger and it’s definitely something that doesn’t happen much anymore. Most invitations are through pages like evite or even facebook. Want to write someone a letter..email is instant.  Computers and the internet have made everything so convenient.

The opportunity to sit and write a letter to someone else, who I didn’t know, was really nice. Telling someone about yourself isn’t alway’s easy but it was fun. I shared a recipe for my Lemon Mustard Tofu, since the card was tofu themed. :) I love writing on paper with my favorite pens. I want to do more of it…beside recipe writing which for me is all done with pen/cil and paper. Writing about how much I liked it over on twitter has gained me a pen pal. I can’t to start writing to her.

This opportunity also gave me a chance to start using my art skills again. My whole life was about drawing and painting when I was a young kid to my early 20’s. I miss it. My creativity for art was transformed into a creativity for food!  Since I didn’t have a postcard to send and wanted to send something with a vegan message on it I decided to make my own. I drew that sweet little tofu saying “hello!” up above. This mini project has also made me hope to be more creative in the near future with more then just food. 

The day I received my mail from the swapper who got me was very exciting! I want more letters from strangers! Especially ones who share their favorite recipes. The person who wrote to me shared her love for Tomato and Mayo sandwiches which happens to be all I eat in the summer

  1. […] If there’s one thing I love more than tofu, it’s anthropomorphic tofu! Jenna made this adorable card for Becky and wrote about it on Good-Good-Things. […]
