My family plays a game, "What is behind my green glass door?"

Of course in the beginning just figuring out simple objects was the goal. As we played the game longer we added adjectives and descriptions. It became almost poetic.

Here are a few examples:

three butterflies flitting merrily

beefy buffaloes running freely

eighteen putting greens getting chopped

Of course, these would make great ATC ideas, too.

What do you think? Would anyone want to do a swap?

How many cards, how long would it take?

As a bit of fun, to get into the swap, you have to send me a list of three objects that would actually be seen through the green glass door. Anyone who knows already the key, "No telling newbies," let them guess.

So if someone posted coffee, tea, hot cocoa, the answer is yes to coffee but no to tea and hot cocoa. BUT NO explanation, let them have fun figuring it out Wink

And, each person would have to come up with three objects no one else came up with yet. So the longer you decide the more objects that would be taken.

Anyone interested?


okay here is the topic for swap members:

Yessiree! All three good!  Wink

Okay now that you are in, when would be a good time to start the swap and how long do you think it should last?

I'm thinking sign-ups until 20th and send outs Jan 5th?

what does everyone else think?

Not sure I can do the swap, although it would be fun so I'm hoping! However I still want to play!

My three suggestions:
Romantic meetings for electric eels
Freezing frogs fretting fearfully (now that's a creepy one!)
Little red sightseeing buses

You are almost there!

Eels meeting alluring fellows.
Freezing frogettes fretting fearfully  (only frogette isn't a word, is it?)

how about:
Freezing alligators fretting fearfully

Little yellow sightseeing busses

Okay? does that help?

Oh! How fun! Not sure if I could join. It would depend on when it ends up running.

Speaking of running...

Fleetly running kittens
Hoppy bunnies
Butter yellow daffodils

Yessiree! totally correct!  Cool  You are IN!

We are in the discussion period. When would you like it to run?

I want to have crafting the end of December beginning of January. But hardcoremothball can't start until the end of January.

I need to post this discussion to the new ATC board, not sure if anyone knows this discussion is going on. . .
