Calling all list-lovers! I came up with that idea the last time I took a friend for a walk. He is blind and he always wants to know what's going on around him.

So what we'll make is a list of 100 things that happen around us. You don't have to stay at one place, walk around, change places and write down what's going on.


  • I'm at the coffee shop
  1. there's a man reading the newspaper
  2. a bee tries to get out of a coffee mug
  • I'm sitting in the middle of a park
  1. a dog is digging up the city flower beds
  2. a couple is kissing on a bench etc

Your list can be typed or handwritten. If you prefer to send a handwritten list pleeeease make sure your partner can read your writing....as for me I'll send it typed, because I know you'll not be able to decode my writing.

♥ This swap

  • is a snail mail swap to 1 partner (EDITED!!)
  • is international, since the postage won't be too high
  • is open to everyone incl. Newbies (with a filled profile!) BUT
  • no NO-Sends in the past 2 months and I'll ban everyone who looks fishy.
  • giving hearts is receiver's choice!

Can you just list or do you want it like above with where you were and then list what you saw under that place?

Do you make one list and send it to both partners or do you do two lists, one for each partner?

What a neat idea. I don't think I would do it for 2 partners, though. I like to handwrite and draw my lists and 2 would be a bit much. Wonderful idea, though!

@rifkasorah That was just an example if you are not going to stay in one place. You don't have to list it that way if you stay in one place.

@ grimmlynn & beachchicken (hehe, cool nick) Since I got a lot of eMails the last few hours (wow) I decided to change the partners to 1 (ONE). Seems to be much better for those who like to send their lists handwritten.

Thanks so much for changing it. What a wonderful host who listens to the participants and those who are interested! It is on my watch list and I will be signing up closer to the 20th!

Grimmlynn you made me blush :o) Thank you for your kind words.

okay, quick kinda silly question

I know we don't have to stay in one spot...but do the 100 things all have to be from the same day? Could the list be spread out over a day or two or three or should it all be the same day? Just thought I'd ask.

Obstminkerl 07/28/2009 #


NOOOO that don't have to be from the same day.....I think this wouldn't be possible gg

Tinkergirl 07/29/2009 #

okay, thanks Gusti, just wanted to double check...didn't think it would all have to be same day but wanted to make sure just in case. :)
