The idea is pretty simple. I would limit sign ups to 25 participants, and each would send in a list of 4 themes/items with their sign up questionnaire. Then when the 'master' list of scavenger items is posted, you send your partner an ATC, ephemera, or doodad with as many themes from the list as you can. Limiting the swap to 25 people means our scavenging list would be 100 themes/items. Seeing as paper and ATCs themselves don't weigh a whole lot, I don't think we'd be breaking the bank to send. I think everyone could get by sending an A4/letter size envelope.
No prizes, just fun! Simplifying my first coordinating gig to make my life a lil' easier.
I was thinking sign ups could be the last week of March (25-31), with a tentative send out of April 23rd, giving us a little over three whole weeks to gather things. I'm totally open to suggestions and changes, though.
Let me know what you think!
ETA: You can use more than one theme for a single ATC.
And one more thing... if ATCs aren't your thing, but you still like ephemera, you can join too. There are no minimums on how many ATCs you might make for this swap. Whatever moves you to make one is great.
You don't have to make any ATCs! Join if you like paper/ephemera!
