Children's ATC Swap

Post by Scrap Monkey on Mon 1 Feb 2010 - 17:52

Okay, after much nagging from my girls , and the go-ahead from Lou, we are hosting an ATC swap for children.

Sign-up by 14th February, and ATC's need to be with me by 27th Feb (that gives people Half Term to actually do them!).

The theme is 'My Favourite....', so lots of room for interpretation. They can be all the same, or a set of different ATC's. Once we have closed sign-up, you will need to make one ATC for each person in the swap (apart from yourself). So, if 6 people sign up, you'll need to make 5 ATC's (you can of course make one for yourself as well, but that's up to you!).

Any questions, please ask!

Right, sign-up is now closed; 5 ATC's each, to me by 27th Feb please. Have fun!

Signed up:

Rachel; done
Molly; done
Lauren; received
Chloe; received
Lily; received
Rosie; received

No, they can be all different, or similar, but don't have to be identical (it's hard to make them the same when you're only small; I struggle and I'm 41!).

They watch the same episodes over and over again. and know them

She's not fully watch HM or Wizards, though we've seen a couple of them. Couldn't cope !!!! she'd be wanting all the stuff to go with it. Bad enough with HSM over half her xmas presents were HSM. Mind you she still likes the princesses too, just as well seeing as her bedroom is that design !!

Well I have to say (again) I am so so proud of my little girl.

I sat her down and explained all about ATCs and what they are. How they are swapped etc., she smiled and said I know what you are going to say mummy (this was after I explained they HAVE to be swapped)

She said, "you're going to make one and swap it with me aren't you" I said "No Lily, you're going to make some and swap with the other children on the forum" Her face changed in that slow motion style from just listening to big wide grin of excitement.

So I then explained about the 'theme', that took a while but I gave my favourites as an example..........she completely threw me. I expected what I've already mentioned.

No, she said I like Purple, Unicorns and singing and dancing. So there you have it, Lily's theme. And the best bit is she has some purple handmade paper, that she made herself from a re-cycling kit she got for christmas. She's obviously thought about it too, because first thing she said to me when climbing into bed for a hug this morning (no it wasn't good morning) she started telling me how she wants to lay it all out.

Me thinks these will be made this weekend !!!!! If we really have that much time.

Ooo I'm excited. Daft eh?

I've tidied my craft corner of junk (!!) and have put Lily's little chair and table out, have sorted my box of ATCs to show her and so that means we are ready for tomorrow. I am going to get her to make a few out of anything first. Let her have a look and rummage to a degree. Can't wait to have a go at this with her.

Think I'll make one too so that she can swap her first one !!!! WITH ME !!!!

Lily's are done. I just need to envelope them up and post along with my alpha. Think we may have to take a special walk tomorrow night to post them.

Lily's are in the post tonight.

And bless her, I said to her this morning that we would take a walk to the post office to put them in post, and then said and in a few days time you'll get 5 back from other children.

Her face was a picture, she was over the moon, flung herself at me screeching, "yes, yes, oh wow"

She hadn't realised that the swap meant she was getting 5 back. She just thought she was sending to others.

yep. she really is a generous soul. Always giving things and wanting to help others. She mothers all the younger children in school and at dance class.

We were in town on Friday and there was a solider outside Tesco collecting for the Yorkshire Regiment. I stopped immediately to put something in, all my loose change, and Lily delved into her purse too and put 20p in. Though we hadn't put enough in the box to warrant the band, the young man let her have one of the rubber bracelets. She held onto it so tight for the rest of the day. Never even had a second thought about putting her own money in.

Girls, I'm really sorry, but given that Chloe's ATC's aren't yet here, it is highly unlikely that i will be able to get your swaps back to you this week. I have photographed the ones that I have received, but specifically put a Saturday as the 'get them to me' date, as I am unable to sort swaps and take pictures in daylight during the working week. I hope you understand. Hopefully Royal Mail will bring me the last set very soon.
