The Faux Poste Project

Frankly, I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but I think I'm onto something. I'm creating fictional postcards, sometimes the story is on the card, sometimes the story is about the card. Most of the elements on the cards are things I've photographed or have created myself. Occasionally I'll use copyright-free elements, but for the most part, they're all my own stuff. I'm including the "back story" for those of you who are interested in the overall process. It's fun for me, and I hope you enjoy reading the stories.

If you have any thoughts regarding what I can do with this idea (maybe a book?), please let me know. Truly, I'm kind of floundering. In the meantime, I continue making the cards, writing the stories, and having fun. — Carol Leigh

Your uncle was a spy . . . #2

Here's another "secret" message he sent out. Remember "The Order of the Silver Bee?" Well, apparently he also created "The Order of the Red Raven." I know he went overseas a lot. What the heck was he doing? Wait a minute. Nobody held this card over a candle flame, did they? There aren't any burn marks. Maybe there's a clue still on the card! I'll check and will let you know soon. The mystery continues . . .

Love, Aunt Sarah
