Maggie Louden has lived in Washington State for an awfully long time now, fostering her creativity amongst the forests, mountain ranges and old Seattle architecture.

We know it for the busy beaches, delicious tapas and mind-blowing architecture, but for our next instalment in the Postcards series the illustrator and clever lady behind blog Di Doo Da shows us what her new-found home is really like.

Katie Stratton has been an Ohio resident since she was a wee one, watching its transformation from a farming town full of cowboy boots and steel guitars to... well, it's pretty much the same, to be honest, but with more record stores.

To an outsider, Gothenburg is viewed as the giant, Scandinavian equivalent of Sydney's Newtown or Melbourne's Fitzroy - large enough to be the second biggest city in Sweden, in fact.

For our third instalment of our new Postcards online series, Ebony Bizys (the lass behind some of our favourite craft books, as well as the totemo kawaii blog Hello Sandwich) takes us through her new-found home in Tokyo.

Ni hao! And welcome to Singapore. Our second snapshot in our series of Postcards From Overseas is Claire Dalgliesh, otherwise known as blogger Fellow Fellow.

It's the start of a fresh week, so what better time for a new online frankie feature? Postcards will be like a monthly photography essay that features a different spiffy international maker/doer/crafter/thinker and the town they live in.
