I'm starting the New Year off with a new interest - Etegami.
If you look on the internet you will find almost nothing about Etegami.
As far as I know - it is making little 'sketch', loose and simple of everyday items and maybe adding some interesting words about it. It is made in the form of a postcard, then immediately mailed off to a friend.
Do an image search and you will be enthralled just like me.
I first heard about it from a barenforum friend who lives in Italy. He belongs to a group that exchange cards regularly and it just sounded like a lot of fun.
