TTS2 signups are now closed. Matchups will be coming soon!
Hello and happy new year!
As promised, here's what I've cooked up for our second Teeny Tiny Swap (TTS2). Our theme this time is Hugs Around The World. (Inspired by Theresa's HATU.)
This is a sort of a geography lesson and postcard swap all in one. To participate, you'll sign up, create (or buy) 10 local postcards or pictures, then send them out to the people on your list. You'll also receive about 10 postcards or pictures back. You can enjoy the mail love you get, and if you want you can plot them on a world map.
This swap is aimed at kids of any age. Since it's "any age", adults count too, so adults should feel free to sign up.
Suggestions for what to send: You know those "Greetings from Kalamazoo" postcards you find everywhere? That would be great. Or a local postcard with a picture of a local landmark. Or your own interpretation (via any medium you want) of a local landmark, your favorite local place to visit, etc. Or break out that new camera you got for the holidays and take some pictures of local landmarks yourself! Send one picture or combine them into a photo-mosaic. This swap has a lot of leeway because I'm still a bit burned out from all the holiday crafting, so in case you are too, there's a way to participate without needing to be super-crafty. If you ARE feeling super-crafty, so much the better!
Somewhere on your card, you must include your email address and (if available) your blog address. So recipients can contact you and say thanks!
Since this swap has a geography bent, I'm going to attempt to spread out your contacts as far and wide as possible, so all those who sign up will need to agree to send internationally.
Interested? Great! The more the merrier! Just send me the information below by Friday, 12 January 2007. I'll send out swap lists by 15 January, then you should send out your cards to your list before 31 January.

Name: You can sign up yourself or your children. This swap will be on a household basis, so everyone at one address will be considered as one. But go ahead and list as many names as you like. Aliases are fine too, as long as the postal carrier can figure out who to deliver to.
Age: Optional for children, not necessary for adults. This lets the senders know if it's an adult or a child they're sending to.
Address: Obvious, no?
Blog: Strongly suggested, but it's not required that you have a blog.
Ready? Then get going! Send me some email!
