The thing from the humans by buddy

"Hello", said Emil the shrimp to his friend Hannes the cichlid. "Hello", said Hannes as well. "I'm so bored Hannes. Do you want to play with me?"
"Hmm..." replied Hannes. "Actually, I wanted to sleep in the sea weed." "Please, please" said Emil. "I'm so bored." "Alright but what shall we play?" "Yesterday I've found a great thing from the humans. It came recently from their world."
Emil and Hannes swam to the thing from the humans and investigated it. Hannes said, "I know this thing. Humans call it crate and they store things in it." "They store things inside", repeated Emil. "I want to have a closer look." Suddenly the lid of the crate closed.
"Help me Hannes. Help. I'm afraid", cried Emil. But what could Hannes do? "I can't save you on my own but I'm looking for help." Hannes came back with Rüdiger the pike and Rüdiger tried everything to get Emil out of the crate but what could he do to get him out of a closed crate.
Emil whined about what would happen if he had to stay in this crate forever but no one had a good advice. Suddenly a boat came towards the crate and it rammed into it and turned the crate upside down. Emil's body shook and he had closed his eyes because he was still in the crate. Hannes and Rüdiger were back again and looked from above onto the crate. "Emil, open your eyes. You are free." Now they could see that the crate had no bottom.
From that day on, Emil swam a long way round things from the humans.

First adoptions

I received the first adoption requests and the postcards are now on their way to the people who requested them.
I have to admit that I can't wait to see them back again with their backs filled with stories and poems. :)

Here is a picture of the style of the postcards, so you know what to expect.

Ready to start

Hi guys!

I'm now ready to start the project.

I've added the postcard types you can adopt and there's a post how the whole adoption works.
And finally, there is an adoption form where you can give me all the information I need to send a card to you.

I'm waiting for your requests. :)

A new project

I had an idea for a new project that involves the blank postcards I have at home and I hope that you'll help me with it.

Several fantasy postcard books are sitting on my shelf but I don't want to send them away via Postcrossing because I wouldn't see them again this way. I'm a writer of short stories and poems as well, so I thought why not combine these two things but I need your help.

I would like to send out the postcards I have to people around the world and get them back with a fictional story or poem that is inspired by the picture on the front of the postcard.
I don't know how many people are up for this challenge but I would like to use this blog to publish your stories and poems with the picture of the postcard they are on.

There is still some work I have to do until everything can start but you can already tell me if you're interested.
