Last swapper to make a claim in May was Pioneer9, so she get's to start of June with a bang! Smiley




I live in NJ, USA. I have a huge ATC collection that I'm always looking to add to. Please no overtly religious or political cards. Also I store my cards in baseball card sleeves in a binder, so no ultra-thick or movable (i.e. ones that open or pop-up) cards, please.

*Themes I'm collecting in all mediums, so do whatever you're best at Smiley (hand drawn, collage, mixed media, stamped, digital, whatever):
-the British TV show Life on Mars
-the British TV show Being Human (particularly Hal/ Tom/ Alex)
-the TV show Carnivale
-the TV show Supernatural
-the TV show Hannibal
-the Hunger Games trilogy (the books-- no movie images, please)
-the Beatles
-hedgehogs
-gargoyles
-reading
-Canada
-vintage bicycles

*Themes I'm collecting hand drawn cards only:
-the TV show Farscape
-the TV show Firefly
-the TV show Battlestar Galactica (the newer version)
-the TV show Game of Thrones
-the TV show Torchwood (but not the Miracle Days reincarnation)


**Please know that I do not have a digital camera or scanner and therefore cannot post gallery pictures. Please take pictures/ scans before sending. Sorry for the inconvenience!**

*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims. **Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.** This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  



HOW THIS SWAP WORKS:

Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few, as little as 1) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.

CLAIMING

1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., the number of cards not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people to whom you've sent them.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


SAMPLE CLAIMS POST:

Thrift stores around here are just ridiculously expensive! I have always been a recycle/upcycle kind of person... but since I moved to Germany... no more. Sadly, it's cheaper buying new around here. I DO love fleamarkets though - and we have a lot of those Cheesy

I'm procrastinating a little atm. I have started my first project (a new technique for me) and it's going really well. But I'm just scared of the next step - worried I might just have to toss everything so far and start anew...
