Childhood Memories ATC Swap



Here are two sets of Childhood Memory themed cards I made and sent out for a swap over at Swap-Bot. This swap idea sounded so challenging and exciting. I was asking myself: What colors are the colors of my childhood? What games, for example, were unique to just our family? I realized just making a Monopoly card was probably common to almost everyone our ages. However, when it came right down to the time to make the cards, I used themes that occurred to me as I was looking through old photos and the bits & pieces I had.

Here are the themes I chose:
Bedtime Prayer Time: It was a most comforting time to get prayed for, kissed, and tucked in by our precious Mommy.
Cookie Baking : We baked tons of cookies! Whenever I wanted to bake anything my mom always let me. Also, we had dessert EVERY DAY! Whew, those glorious childhood years!
First Day of School: This card shows my older sister and I entering 1st and 2nd grade, in a new school. Yes, that took a lot of courage!
Pen Pals: We moved a lot when I was a child, so I had lots of Pen pals from my old neighborhoods, and I also had many other Pen Pals whose names I got from children's magazines of those days.
Mother Reading: This card symbolizes my mom reading to us, then my vivid imagination off in my make-believe world, living in a castle or something!
Picking Wildflowers: I was fascinated by wildflowers as a child, and now, too! There were lots of empty lots, fields and forests in those days and lots of colorful wildflowers! Those pink and blue bachelor buttons were my favorites.

I thoroughly enjoyed the cards I've received on that theme, so far. I will post pictures of those when they all arrive. I tried scanning my cards for this post, and I can tell the picture quality isn't as nice as when I use my digital camera. But since my cards are all mailed off, I can't undo that!

These childhood memories ATC's are tops! The sentiments, colors, textures and themes, all bring back so many memories for me as well! Pen pals, making cookies and my mommie's goodnight prayers...that's the life of one lucky child! Me! And, I guess, you, too! Desserts everyday? I'm all for that! Great ATC's and a fun, fun trade!
