Well. I was "shopping" for some Pinspiration when I found this classic National Geographic photo of a young Afghani girl (it got SO much attention from the world, and inspired the photographer to search for this girl...who was by then a woman with several children...to follow up on her life years after the original photo was taken), and right away my thought process went to a possible "The eyes have it" swap theme. Let's make one ATC for one swap partner, using a vintage photo in which the subject's eyes are so striking that you can barely look away. Another classic that comes to mind is the photo of the "Migrant Mother"...the image used to represent the Dust Bowl days. The photo certainly does not need to be iconic; it certainly does not need to be sad...as long as the subject's eyes just draw us in. All the standard ATC rules apply, regarding size and sturdiness, coverage of the back of the ATC so no bare cardboard shows, and the need to put our names and swap information on the back.
