^I had never heard of it before this project. It does sound a bit grim.
Aww, that's a pretty cool idea.
Although, I have a Facebook album for one of my little figurines traveling around so maybe that's just normal for me lol.
tsq I am in love with Flat Stanley, fantastic photos!! Also would like to immediately take the transporter to NYC.
Yes it is totally normal
I not only love the Flat Stanley concept and what tsq is doing with it, but I love her outfit in those photos and the awesome AC/DC shirt under the blue coat. There's nothing about these photos that isn't cool.
Dude. I killed that outfit. But the boots were the best part.
I do believe I'm getting the vapours! Those are indeed very cool-looking.
Adorable pic! I need to show up here more often, 'cause when I don't, you guys just leave me behind.
Ancient Mariner, your NYC shot is gorgeous, as usual.
And I love the Flat Stanley series, TSQ.
tsq, I think your nephew's idea is a brilliant one. And to take it a step farther, Flat Stanley could be mailed to different board members who could take pictures of his travels and post them. He could end up travelling around the world. Of course, that's if your nephew - and enough people got on the bandwagon.
^ The "Flat Stanley Project" has been something that's been going on for years, and it's something that many elementary school kids do. My older two kids have participated as a class project, and my youngest will as well.
Although the way my kids (and it seems TSQ's nephew) did it was to mail it to a friend or family member, not send it to another participating school as in the article.
I've participated in the Flat Stanley thing a few times. Once for my friend's nephew when I was living in Romania and once while living here for a little girl my cousin teaches in Nova Scotia who didn't have anyone to send her Flat Stanley to. I took a bunch of pictures around the city and sent him back to her with a souvenir "I ♥ NY" t-shirt.
Took this yesterday:
ETA: Hmm, on the way from my computer to Photobucket to here, it got a bit darker.
^ Don't worry, it's an awesome pic. And the dark makes it look even better!

TSQ, I absolutely love your photo set! Such fun (with great settings and backdrops!). One of these days I'm going to have to walk the Williamsburg Bridge.
Thanks. My travels have taken me up to the 80s on both the East and West sides. Really cool neighborhoods!
This is a fabulous shot! Just love it, especially in B&W. Great composition and lighting, too. Nicely done!
That's a great photo, Ziyal! I love not only the pose of your cat but the composition of the shot!
That is indeed an excellent shot. The darkness actually works--it makes a nice contrast. And........KITTY!
It IS a great photo! love it
So I was greeted by this, this morning. Lovely snow.
My drive to the tire place to take off my snow tires and to put the all seasons back on. Thinking I maybe doing the switch over a tad to early.
Me being attacked by flurries.
It's 90 degrees here and I have the AC going. If it snowed here, the entire state would grind to a halt.
That said, I wouldn't mind having a bit of snow in the winter. Might be a nice change.
Just two months ago my area was blanketed with repeated snow storms and it didn't seem like it was going to melt anytime soon. Now it's been as warm as the mid-to-upper 80s, people are frequently in shorts and spring is in full swing.
