Geri's New Year atc swap

Post by Guest on Wed 17 Dec 2008 - 2:58

Lorraine has given geri the all clear to organise a kids atc swap.

The theme is 'New Year Traditions Around The World' . Geri's idea is that each child who signs up would make 3 atc's, same, similar or different about a New Year tradition from a country of the world. Each child would get 3 back of course. Geri is making 4 as she wants to keep one of her own

The atc's need to be normal atc size 3.5 x 2.5 (inches) portrait format. Addresses and large stamp for return please.

Geri has chosen Spain for hers as they have a spanish teacher who has been telling them all about her country's traditions.

Each child can choose a country, it doesn't matter if they double up on countries as the atcs would be different anyway.

Sign up here, on this thread, before 14th January please, to be received by Geri by 28th January.

Any takers.... Wink


Geri .....Spain
Rosie....Japan
Sarah...Greece
Chloe... Scotland
added KT......china

KT received :heart:
Rosie received :heart:
Chloe received :heart:
sarah received :heart:
Geri ....done :heart:

I'll ask Lauren, but she's probably a bit young at 8 years old. I'll ask her
though and see what she says.

Sorry, but I have nobody that can join your swap. One 4 year old who couldn't be interested, one boy 11 who wouldn't be interestedand one girl 13 that has reached that horrible lip curling stage, her lip, not mine by the way. Hope she grows out of it soon before the wind changes.

Sorry Suzy - I did try to persuade Lauren, but she wasn't interested.
It it had been Hannah Montana or shoes/handbags it might have been
different.

Kate... Geri said she will be happy to see your atc's, as long as it is on the theme of new years traditions around the world.. and
these are the countries which have already been chosen

Geri .....Spain
Rosie....Japan
Sarah...Greece

you would need to make 3 for the swap and perhaps an extra one to keep for yourself. They do need to be in by 28th Jan..or the next day for you..as we won't sort until we receive all of them.

I am so sorry, with one thing and another I forgot to remind Rosie and she hasn't done them yet. I will try to get her to do them asap, but they won't be with Geri today!!

Please apologise too her Suzy, I feel dreadful. I don't think i have ever been late on a swap!!
