moomin postcards!

i'm so happy i finally figured out how to make the scanner function of our HP all-in-one printer/scanner/copier 1210 work. for ages, i've wondered why it wouldn't detect its scanner when i can easily print stuff from it while it's connected to the computer. now i know i didn't install it correctly, hence defeating its all-in-one purpose.

i uninstalled the software, then reinstalled it--this time making sure that the printer is still unplugged before it completes the installation process.

now that it's working, i can finally scan various things, such as the postcards i've received from postcrossing. i adore the moomin postcards from finland! moomins were created by tove jansson circa 1940's. they look like hippopotamuses but are really white trolls who live in moomin valley.

i love the vintage look of the illustrations. so far i've received three:

the finnish love their moomins so much that they even produced postage stamps in their honor:

shiera: you can request moomin postcards by indicating them on your postcrossing profile like i did! :)
