Kanga, that is neat that they each get one of the post cards. We did it in first grade and I don't know where all the post cards went. My daughter did all the work on this one. Our troop doesn't even know she did it (we never meet). We are going to put it together and show it to them. She is goiing to use it as a 4H project too.

We participated in this for the first time this year. It was fun. We also have about 25 that are still outstanding. The girls have really enjoyed reading postcards from all over the world.

We will definitely participate again next year.

I have promised the girls each 1 and the few who brought postcards will get an extra 1 to keep. I like the idea of laminating though, its the best solution I have heard so far. I still have about 40 outstanding and then I want our local newspaper to come and take pics for an article, the publicity should be good.

We have a whole bunch of post cards. I think we are going to laminate them in 8 1/2 b 11 sheets and put them in a binder somehow.

Hey Shell
the exchange starts every year in about October, you register on the website and after the exchange opens you have access to the entire data base and can choose who you would like to contact to set up exchanges. Others will also contact you. The exchange closes end of Jan every year. Beware it is time consuming and very addictive, but so much fun for you and the girls. We set a limit of 100 cards this year but as far as I know there is no limit only they ask units from the USA not to ask for too many overseas exchanges, maybe because there are less of us to go around. I will post a reminder closer to the registration date this year

Is this done for Thinking Day or year around?

This sounds like something I would like to do with my girls.

I was gone for a week and I had a whole bunch when I got back! It's exciting. I need to find time to sit down and read them. Then get Emily to organize them.

Wow, it's probably too late for us! I signed us up anyway, but I think we'll limit ourselves to about 25.

No one can make you feel any particular way, good or bad........ unless you let them.

UPDATE on the exchange. I have recieved about 35/100 cards. Most have been stuck up as a display at our hall. Balance will be stuck up as they arrive. Just sent a request for Kazakhstan . Will wait to hear if it was successfull. Hope so I love getting the postcards from all these different countries. How is everyone else going with the exchange? I am very late in getting our cards out. they will probably go out on Monday evening so please let me know when they arrive.

THIS YEAR SEEMS TO BE GOING CRAZY WITH THE GIRLS...WE HAVE YET TO HAVE ALL OF THEM THERE. WE HAVE WORKED ON OUR CARDS BUT NOT ALL THE GIRLS HAVE SIGNED THEM. WE ARE TRYING TO WAIT JUST A LITTLE LONGER TO SEND OURS OUT, SO WE CAN GET ALL THE GIRLS ON THEM....HOPEFULLY! WE HAVE RECEIVED ABOUT 10 CARDS SO FAR BUT NONE HAVE BEEN INTERNATIONAL. AS I SEE THE POST CARDS, I AM PLANNING MY NEXT VACATION AND AS TO WHICH STATE I WANT TO GO VISIT. HA! HA!

Will keep my eyes open and let you know when your card arrives.
I can see I am going to have to do the cards myself because this term is so disrupted, I had to cancel again on Friday cause only 4 girls were coming and on the 23rd I am away for the weekend and the Ranger leader is taking my girls. Better get the writing fingers out.............

Ours are ready to go, I just need to get to the post office for stamps. I have about 7 so far. It's fun. We haven't gotten any international ones yet. I need to get stuff to put them in an album.

I did a spreadsheet and mail merge to print labels. I didn't want to address them all and I knew my daughter wouldn't.

My Postcard from South Korea arrived on the 31st. Have had a few others but mainly from England. I am planning a trip to our local postoffice to do the Postal Knowledge badge and post off our postcards at the same time. But first we have all the addressing to do.................

My daughter is doing all the work. That way I know it will be done. She is going to use it as a 4H project as well. That way we can keep the postcards to show at the fair next summer. We'll show the girls the alblum, but we'll keep it.

We printed our postcards yesterday. Now we have to work on printing the mailing labels next. Then off they go.

I wanted to make the post cards, but our girls don't really meet anymore. The last time we met we only had three of the five, next time we'll only have 4. So we decided to use plain Iowa post cards.

congratulations CARROLLKR, hope it was a lovely wedding.
We have not started our cards either. Took pics on Friday to make into postcards so should have them ready shortly. My girls go camping this weekend without me as I have a church function to attend and another Guider is taking them so I might spend Friday evening putting in some work on the cards

I have been receiving a few postcards so far. We haven't sent ours out yet. I got married on Saturday and then we went on a mini honeymoon camping. We need to get on it though. It's fun to get them!

This is our Summer Holidays, they start on 1 Dec and kids go back to school in Mid January We also have 10 day holidays in April, 3 weeks in July and a week in Sept. Our school year runs from Jan to Dec so when they go back in Jan it will be to new grades etc. My eldest is starting her last year of school, VERY SCARY......

That's a good idea. I could just put them in a binder then. I like that. That will make it more like a scrap book then a photo alblum. I like it.

Now I need to get my daughter to write a message and do mailing lables for them. I wish I could find a photo alblum that you can see through both sides of the slip. Then you could see both sides. Most seem to be black or not see through.

I will keep that in mind!

I'm done too. I even found someone to donate postcards. Of course they are bigger then normal postcards so they require full postage. Ouch. Oh well, I was very happy to have some donated. It will give more room to write a nice message.

OK I am finished, I got Vermont and Rhode Island and Northern Ireland, so I am really happy. I am going to No More Trades and wait for my last few requests to answer. Total so far 90. Just a suggestion try and find a good Afrikaans transelator cause the one they used was terrible
Good Luck everyone

That is awesome. I will have to remember that for next year. Next year I think it would be neat to focus on a couple countries and just learn a lot about each of them. That would be a great way to start.

I haven't had anything unusual. I have a leader in New Orleans share pictures of her home before and after Hurricane Katrina. They are amazing. It's hard to imagine what it must be like to have that kind of devistation in your own neighborhood and home.

I just had the nicest request. a Troop from Tennessee sent me the whole e-mail in Afrikaans which is one of our 11 official languages (a mixture of Dutch, German etc). The language was really bad but I was so impressed that they had taken the time to try it that I had to agree to trade even though I already had a trade with that state. Has anyone else had a really different request, one that made you sit up and take notice?

I would just give some back ground on your troop. How many and the age level. Where you are from. What activities you like to do. Nothing fancy.

I just found out I don't have Nevada. I thought I had all the states. But I skimmed through my spreadsheet. I swear I had all the states. Darn it.

This is my first year to trade. I haven't asked for any, but have just responded to those who wanted to trade with me. I understand the getting one from each state would be neat, but would take way too much time for me to do all that asking. Plus I hate to say no, so I have agreed to trade with anyone who asked, even if it's two from the same state. I mean, it only takes a few minutes to do a postcard. I liked the idea of sending in January, as it will have the 2008 postmark. What does everyone write on the cards? What you troop likes? A neat service project you have done?

One day at a time . . .

I got the same one from WY. I thought it meant they were doing e-cards but I could just mail them one. I was not sure of that one so just incase we asked a second troop also.

I think I have the same troop. She included the ecard, but gave me her address. I am assuming she is sending a card too. If they are doing ecards, they should say that up front.

Wyoming agreed to trade and said something about an e-card. Forgive the ignorance but does that mean I should send them a card and just download their card off the net? I am not sure what is expected in this case
I am still waiting for Montana, Rhode Island and Vermont.
Last year we still had people trying in January to get the last few trades in. But it is better if you are all sorted out earlier
Happy Trading emoticon

That's the frustrating part. If you wait, you might not get the state. If you don't wait you could have a double state. I waited about a week before I asked.

I think it just goes this fall. Probably as long as people are still active on the data base. A lot of them do it now and send post cards in January. Then it starts again next spring.

SO WHEN DOES THE TRADING STOP? I HAVE READ ALL KINDS OF NOTES TILL MY EYES CROSSED AND HAVE NOT FOUND THAT ANSWER YET...MAYBE I AM BLIND FROM ALL THOSE RESPONSES.

I AM TRYING TO DOUBLE CHECK MY LIST FOR THE STATES I DO NOT HAVE YET. SOME THAT I ASKED HAVE NOT RESPONDED YET AND WHEN I GO BACK TO THE DATA BASE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE STILL TRADING, IT DOES. SO HOW LONG DO U WAIT UNTIL YOU ASK SOME ONE ELSE IN THAT STATE?

You got off to a late start too. That makes it hard to get the states with only a couple troops trading. Next year you will be ahead of the game.

I got Vermont! So I think I have all the states! But I just found out only three of the five girls are going to camp. That's where I wanted to take their pictures. Darn it. We don't meet anymore. Just fun events.

To get all 50 you really have to be on top of things. The states that only have a couple troops doing it are hard to get. I was on top of it and I'm still not getting all 50 states. For international, I got Australia, Canada, England, Scotland and, of course, South Africa.

I can't wait for them to roll in. I can't wait to get ours made too.

You just go to the website and sign your troop up.

www.mythinkingday.com

It's been going on for a week now. I know lots of people have taken their names off the list. Especially the states with very few participants.

It's a fun project. You could start small this year. And mark your calendar for next fall to make sure you are prepared for an early start.

OK, this is the best response I got. I emailed them the very first day. I just now got this back......I'm sorry to say the girls have decided they do not wish to exchange post cards with your troop this year. We wish you the best of luck.

What kind of a response is that? Couldn't you say you had an Iowa troop already? I feel like we weren't good enough for her troop. Wow.

Scrappidoo-Let me know when you do email me who you are so I don't turn you down. If I already did let me know and I'll get you one. I have lots of duplicate states right now.

I am 6 states short. Wyoming and North Dakota are going to be a problem. North Dakota wasn't going for the begging. The second troop flat out blew me off. The other 4 states, plus WY, are ones that I emailed an hour after they opened the data base and I still haven't heard from them. Seems rather rude to me. I finally emailed other troops last night.

Oh well it will be fun. I have 5 countries. In two weeks we go to fall camp and I will get pictures for the post card. I hope all 5 of our girls are going to camp.

I heard back from ND. She is going to contact the council to get more troops on board. So I guess I'll take that as a no. I guess I will beg the other troop. I even offered reimbursement.

I am from Texas. Since it's only 1 per troop, I guess we can do quite a few - I feel bad turning people down. I gather the idea is to collect all 50 states? And as many other countries as possible. I think it would be neat to have other countries. Thanks for the information.

I know I also went 1st come 1st served so I have told the other lady we will accept her exchange, it is their first year so she is very excited. I am on 26 states, still waiting for a few to confirm. Hope you find a way to get North Dakota

That's interesting way to do it. I took them first come first serve. If I asked them I took it. I would go ahead and ask someone else.

I am up to 34 states and South Africa, British Columbia and Austratlia.

I can't wait until they start coming in. My troop doesn't even know we are doing it. Just the two leaders daughters. We will take a photo as GS camp the end of the month. I will have them write a note for the back. I just hope all 5 go to camp. I know 4 are going. I think it will be nice to do it at GS camp.

Hey Mandykayee
you register at www.mythinkingday.com, then you get listed on the database, you either check the datbase and decide who to e-mail or you wait for the e-mails to arrive reqesting exchanges.
You trade 1 postcard with each group you agree to exchange with. My girls loved it because evey week I had new postcards to show them.
Which state are you from?

That is horrible, Maybe one of our Spark friends is from North Dakota, its worth a try to find out.
Good Luck I have e-mailed ND but I haven't heard back yet. The lady from California wants me to wait a couple of week while they decide who to exchange with. Can't decide if I should wait or takeon of the other requests from there

Hi, this is the first time I have ever heard of the postcard exchange. I got a few domestic emals last night, but haven't replied yet (parent meeting was last night, so no time). Do you just send one postcard from the troop, or one from each girl? What do folks usually write on the card? Thanks for the information.

I got rejected by both North Dakota troops. Pretty crummy-there are only two. If I reject someone I always say that we are willing to if they can not find another troop. I might resort to begging.

I haven't heard from Alaska yet. My daughter emailed 50 states almost immediatly after the database was posted. So hopefully they will agree. I got Hawaii lined up.

Hi CARROLLKR
I know how frustrating it is to have to say NO. So far we have 21 states confirmed and about 15 overseas trades. I have Alaska which I battled to get last year so I really hope I can make our goal.
Good Luck for the rest of the trade and Thanks for aggreeing to trade with us.

That sounds great. I just sent you an email.

I requested post cards from England and Scotland because we have a couple that we have become friends with and that's where they are from. I thought my daughter might like that. See where they are from.

I was only planning on doing the 50 states, but I was getting overseas request and thought what the heck. I figure I will do around 20-30 extra post cards. My main goal is all 50 states. The good news about only 4 from Iowa is I should be able to get all the states pretty easily. I just hate to tell people no. I asked them to check with another Iowa troop, but if they all said no to check back with me. I don't want them to go without either.

Hey Carroll
I know what you mean there are only about 10 or 15 units from South Africa so I have been answering e-mails all day. We do not have a trade with Iowa yet, would you like to trade? If so please e-mail me at queensburghdistrict@yahoo.com. I have 20 states and about 10 from Canada and 2 from Australia ans a couple from England. We are aiming at all 50 states with 100 cards as our limit. Last year we sent out 93. Happy Trading emoticon

I did it too. There are only 4 troops from Iowa so I am getting bombarded with requests. I have had to tell a lot of them no. I took several duplicate states, but I can't do that many! Yikes. It will be fun to have them start rolling in. I have 26 states so far and three other countries.

I need to get the patches ordered too.

I signed up. I might let my daughter take the reigns on it and get us going. It was fun last time. I think we'll stay in the US this time and then branch out international next year.

We did it when my daughter was in 1st grade. She is in 7th grade this year. I should see if they want to do it. It was so fun.

Hi Everyone, just wanted to know if anyone has taken part in the Post Card exchange before. This will be our second year and we had so much fun with it last year.
Want to find out more then go to http://www.mythinkingday.com
The exchange really helps the girls to see the international side of Guiding and Scouting. Mine were very excited to see where all the different postcards came from.
hope you all have a great Spark week
