So after about a gazillion swap ideas for my first coordinating gig, I've finally decided I'd like to do this.... if you guys are interested, that is. Wink 

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. Smiley

I was also thinking of offering prizes to the person who includes items for all 100 themes, and to the person who includes the most themes in one ATC or piece of ephemera. That would mean the scavenger items  would have to be carefully photographed, so everyone would know it contained all 100 themes/most themes. The regular scavenger hunt swaps offered prizes and I rather like the idea. I was thinking of small things, like a couple of sharpies, some extra ephemera, maybe an ink pad. Suggestions for this welcome, too. (If there were a tie, I'd just send prizes to both.)
No prizes, just fun! Simplifying my first coordinating gig to make my life a lil' easier. Wink

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. Wink

Let me know what you think!

ETA: You can use more than one theme for a single ATC. Wink
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!

 Shocked

Let me get this straight. Instead of having assigned partners, we send anything we could (from the Master List) to as many people as we can?

Where would you post each person's addys?

I hope I'm cleared on some swaps by then....weeeee!

And BTW, I'm soooo glad to see you posting again. I've missed ya'!

Sorry for the confusion... Everyone would be assigned one partner. You'd send your whole packet to them. (I guess that means I either have a round-robin or need to make it 26 or 24 participants, eh?)  I'm glad you're interested!

And thanks! I've missed you, too. Smiley

Are you planning on being an evil, pushy organizer who uses scare-tactics to keep people in line?  I don't know if I could withstand such a thing Wink
