Flat Char Returns home

(update)  This post no longer has photos as I installed Picassa....and when I decided to delete Picassa....it removed ALL my photos from my Blog...even ones I had uploaded even before Picassa!  So, if I still had the photos, I tried to upload them again in all the posts but some years, I didn't still have the photos.

I don't know how many of you were here about a year ago when Flat Char was 'born' and took off on her journey around the U.S.A. So, I will explain a little just in case you are thinking I am absolutely bonkers.

Last year, in March, a group of stampers from my Yahoo group took part in an unusual swap. We all made dolls from card stock with arms and legs that were movable. We added a photo of our face to the dolls face. We dressed them up, made a passport and then the 'flat stampers", as we called them, began their journey to the next person on the list. No one ever expected this journey to last over a year but that doesn't matter now.

Flat Char visited:
Burgettstown, PA
Plattsburgh, N.Y
Contoocook,N.H
Langhorne, PA
Hurley, NY
Aberdeen, WA
Salem, VA
Williston, VT
Pittsburgh, PA
Savannah, GA
Olympia, WA
and finally Knoxville, TN before heading back home.

I am thoroughly enjoying reading and re reading all the entries in my passport. Some gals even added photos and postcards.

I would dearly LOVE to be able to visit each one of these gals in person. It was a fun experience and we loved reading all the mishaps (my foot got nibbled off by a bunny LOL but my hostess was able to mend it) and adventures of each other's visits.


I have more plans in store for Flat Char but that is for another time.
I have a couple of RAKs to share but will do so in another post.
