Little Cards on Big Adventures

30 Oct

When the leader of the LEP was moving to the US from Canada with her wife, she wanted to downsize some stuff she acquired before she did. I gladly volunteered to take any ATCs she was willing to send me, and received a wide variety of Artist Trading Cards soon after.

The morning after, I woke up wanting to find a group where themes were announced, and each person who signed up would make enough ATCs for their fellow recipients, getting just as many in return. So, for example, if 5 people signed up to do some sort of soda swap, they’d make 5 soda-related cards and then get 5 (including one of their own) back. I asked my mom if she knew of such a thing to no avail, and Jenn told me she used to know of a message board but it was no longer active. I then took it upon myself to make my own group– a secret one for now– with Jenn being my sound board every step of the way.

October was just a few days away, so it made sense that my first swap should start on the 1st. And because Jenn was such a huge help to me, she took on the position of cohost, also arranging a swap. As hosts, our participants send their creations to us so I can distribute all the cards from my swap, and Jenn hers. We have come to the decision that her swaps would be pop culture-friendly while mine are up for more of a broad interpretation.

12 people signed up for my Orange swap, and 10 for her Halloween Movie one! The following are miscellaneous pictures from this month’s endeavors.

Several people have started receiving their Orange ATCs, and the Halloween Movie ones should start showing up any day now. I’m so excited that our trial run went so well, and that so many of the members we recruited are as excited as Jenn and I are for November!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
