Housekeeping WOYWW12

Remember late last year there was a huge party, fuss, zoom meet to mark and celebrate WOYWW 600? We did it because 600 is a big fat satisfying round number and well, everyone seemed to want to! My, it was a highlight of the year for me, that zoom meet.
The actual annual anniversary never falls on a memorable number really, and this year is no exception! The twelfth anniversary will be WOYWW 624, which is in a matter of weeks. Actually it is Wednesday 19th May.

Almost a decoy photo, but it does flower in May and so is at least appropo....

So now then. Think On. as Lyn would say. We usually successfully do an ATC swap in a circular fashion to acknowledge the occasion and to achieve some happy mail. Well, I’ve been thinking about this and wonder if you’d like to expand ever so slightly. As we’ve all spent some months (pigging ages) learning to appreciate our own homes, backyards and localities, how about an ATC swap but with the addition of a local postcard in the envelope? Of course I mean a commercial one that you buy, but if your photos are better, make one! It will be fun to see a bit beyond your desk top, particularly as many of you have shared wonderful pics of local parks and things over the last few months. I don’t live anywhere particularly picturesque or architecturally notable, but I can still buy a postcard of the high street, so it shouldn’t be too difficult. And frankly, if it is, don’t do it, just send an ATC. After all, it’s meant to be fun and it certainly isn’t meant to cause stress! 
Are we on then? I’ll flag this post up next Wednesday for reference and I’ll take comments and questions. Get me, sounds like it’s important!

Count me in. I think it would be a good idea to limit it just to the pass it forward recipient to limit the spread of anything nasty....what do you think? I’d be more than happy to make an ATC and put together a pass it forward goody bag even for the lucky one.

Hopefully I'll get off my bottom and create an ATC. Not sure I'll find a Wichita postcard, but I KNOW I can find one from Kansas.

Sounds Great. I would be interested if other countries are accepting USA mail.

Kathryn Frantz said...

I have not participated in the act swapp before, so I’ll need a bit more direction...do I send them ALL to you?

And will others send mail to the U.S.?

I'm definitely in! I've never made an ATC before but I do have some from other WOYWW ladies from the crops, kindly passed on even though I hadn't created any myself. I will look forward to creating something different!
