Project: Join Us For a Flock Migration Mobile Exchange!

mobile exchange

We wanted to take a quick moment to thank all of you for the warm reception you’ve extended to the newest issue of Alphabet Glue! It has been such fun to see posts begin to pop up with photos of how the projects are taking on a life of their very own in your houses. Posts like Ginny’s and Meryl’s got us thinking about the idea of organizing an exchange based on one of the projects in the issue. We thought it would be a fun way for families to share with one another, like with the nature exchange earlier in the fall, and would also give us a chance to see even more examples of people using the projects from Volume Sixteen!

We’ve decided that the popularity of the Flock Migration Mobile project makes it a natural choice for an exchange, particularly because it would also be easy to mail! To make it even easier, we are thinking that we will just have families exchange the birds from the mobile, and then assemble them into a mobile with sticks and all that good business once the birds have arrived at their new home. If you would like to be matched up with another Mud Puddles family for purposes of exchanging birds for a migration mobile, simply follow the instructions below! We hope that you will join us.

Send an e-mail to by February 2, 2014 and include the following information in your e-mail:

  • Name (first and last)
  • Full mailing address
  • Email address
  • Link to your blog (if you have one)
  • Ages of your children
  • If you are willing to ship internationally
  • Title the e-mail “Mobile Exchange”

Start getting your mobile ready as soon as you sign up so that you will be sure to have plenty of time to finish. If you would like to use the templates from Volume Sixteen of Alphabet Glue in making your mobile birds, you can download a copy from the following link. Enter twenty at checkout for a 20% discount.

We will match you up with another family and send you an e-mail with the information needed to send your mobile to your match!

    Log home decorating can be an aspect of homeownership that
    you enjoy or that you loathe. You have a great
    deal more headroom too, and they have all the conveniences of the travel
    trailer. Sound won’t be able to penetrate mainly because large strong wood content deflects away
    sound waves.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  • Aaron May 21, 2014, 1:01 am

    You should proceed your writing. I’m confident,
    you’ve a huge readers’ base already!
