My daughter Amelia who is 9 would like to join in..

liverson
02-22-2008, 03:08 PM
She is 10. Would you like to know my age? I have worked very hard to reach this age gracefully. Why does everyone want to hide their age.:twitcy:

Honeya9705
02-22-2008, 03:47 PM
ok so I'm new to this site. Sign my kids up please!

james 6

Ashley 9

Jillian 3

so that means I will be sending 9 cards total to dina54-Creature of the Night & then she sends them out to everyone? Thanks

Yes, just follow the directions (SASE, names on cards etc) Send the whole thing to the address I will PM you, and about one week after the due date, everybody gets 3 cards (each) from 3 different artists for their collection!
If you want each child to get their own mail, make sure and send 3 SASEs!
Oh and FYI, my 10 year old grand-daughter Faith, is the un-official hostess of this swap :D

dina54
02-23-2008, 09:20 AM
I have received a request from SpiritFingers. She has a class with 20 kids who each want to make one card and get one in return, welcome kids!!!!

knesi07
02-23-2008, 09:59 AM
FANTASTIC! welcome all!

dina54
02-23-2008, 02:20 PM
What do all of you think of my dividing the cards into rough age groups like maybe 10 and over, and under 10? Just an idea. (It would make it easier for your gracious hostess to swap out :unsure:)

Spirit Fingers
02-23-2008, 04:44 PM
I think that sounds like a great idea! If that is decided I will bundle my cards in 2 lots to make it easy for you!
