    Special ATC trade request.

    I recently started working in a local nursing home as Activities Organiser. This week I introduced some of the residents to the delights of ATCs. One lady took to it like a duck to water, despite the fact that her arthritis is so severe she can only use one hand.

    Anyway, she has made a few and I told her I would ask if there is anybody on here who would like to trade with her. Please be aware she doesn't have access to the internet and you would have to include your name and address for her to send you one back.

    Also, due to her disabilities, the ATCs she is making are very simple and childlike. However, they have a charm all of their own.

    If anybody would like to trade, please pm me for the addy to send direct to her.

    I would be more than happy to swap with her, I think it is a lovely idea. Do you still have my addy? If not, let me know.

    Received your fantastic ATC yesterday.

    Pleased you like it!

    I don't still have your addy, I didn't keep any of them after I sent the cards out. However, this one is a little different as you will need to include your addy in with the ATC for her to send you one out. Depending on how many she gets, you may have to wait for her to make more before you get one returned. However, I can assure anybody who trades that they will get one returned as soon as she makes them.

    Also, I don't know her surname so will have to find that out when I go in today and pm you later.

    Would love to do this, pm me the addy and I'll set to - would an SAE help?

    Thank you!

    An SAE isn't necessary, however, if you want to you can.

    I found out her surname today and am off to pm you all now.

    I posted an ATC off to Jean yesterday, so, with any luck, she should get it by tomorrow at the latest.

    My mum is a pensioner, and would be delighted to swap ATC's ... she loves doing them, but doesn't have a lot of people to swap with - particularly her age !!!

    Thank you Catherine!

    Would love to trade with her. However, also pleased just for her to have one of mine, no need to pressure her to make more if that would be difficult. I have pm'd you

    Thanks

    Does she have internet access, if so there are plenty of swaps to join including the ones on UKS - you don't have to be any particular age to do so. I'm a pensioner and it's never occurred to me that I might need to join any sort of OAP swap!

    Thanks to those who have pm'd me, will be answering soon.

    Catherine, yours arrived today and my Lady was delighted!

    And for those of you concerned about pressuring her to have one back, she really does enjoy making them so there is no pressure. Making and sending them back is half the fun. The only problem is that we can only do craft one morning a week as I have about 40 residents to cater for in 20 hours a week. So you will all get one back, it may just take a little time.

    I really do appreciate this, you should have seen her face this morning!

    Glad she was pleased, and no pressure to send one back quickly, just tell her to enjoy making them.
