I'm running a little late but have finally made a start on Darcy's
fab postcard challenge
the idea is to create two characters who will visit different countries each week for a year (prompted by Darcy) and send each other postcards of their adventures. I made myself a book to hold my card collection following the YouTube
clip from Kerri that appears on Darcy's blog. I covered the book with an old plastic post bag and Washi Tape around the edges
My characters Gloria Able and Jayne Good have been best mates for a lifetime and would normally do everything together however, owing to circumstances beyond their control they've set off on this world tour on their own. All of the events take place before the age of internet and iphones and the gals will keep track of each other via their itineries.
Week 1- Austria: Jayne Good (19) is a fun-loving gal but rather more sensible and level-headed than Gloria.
She's just arrived for a wellness week at 'The Abstaining Austrian' only to find herself snowed in and trapped in the hotel.
With little else to do, she fashions a postcard for Gloria out of an old envelope and decorates it with a paper snowflake using the sewing kit in her room.
Quite when she's going to beable to leave is anyone's guess...
Week 2: Gloria (18) the slightly more 'wayward' of the two gals and has joined a Contiki bus tour in Spain. She has a tough partying schedule ahead of her but is confident she can go the distance,
this girl is ready to rock...
I plan to decorate the pages of my folder at some stage but I still haven't decided what to do yet.
