*Are you a Friend of Craftster?:
*What is the exact size of an ATC?:

*Are you aware that if an ATC is lost in the mail, you are required to resend?:
*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?:
*When sending sent/receive notifications to the swap organizer, there are four juicy pieces of information that must be included about each ATC.  What are they?  (Scroll down in the swap info under this questionnaire to the area "Once you have sent or received a card"; the answer is in red.):

*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!  


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.


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, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

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., how many 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 you've sent them to.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   O Christmas Tree
2)   Cute Animals in Stockings
3)   Purple and Silver
4)   Santa-Animal Hybrid
5)   Holiday Cookies

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  

1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  (It's also good to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  
2.  Please include one of these at the title of the message: December ATC Swap--Sent or December ATC Swap--Received (Be sure to include the month, since I generally run multiple months at a time)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  (That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!) Easy as pie!

For example, you could use this format:
I sent some ATCs today!  

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> YowzaSwapper (fantasmic theme)

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 (yet another fascinating theme)


This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the swap gallery (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the swap gallery!

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, jillybeans.  This thread is specifically for claims only.

I received an awesome altered tin ornament from MissingWillow.  Its Snape themed and just absolutely awesome!  I love all the little details.  The little wand came off during transit, so I need to reattach that before I hang it.

Thanks so much, MissingWillow!!!

My ordered supplies just came in today!  Woot!  Just in time for the power to come back on!  We were without power starting 3:30pm on Tuesday until 2am this morning due to a crazy wind storm we had.  So nice to use the internet again!  And lights.  Lol!  So, I hope to get working soon!

I also totally wanted to craft more this round! But then I got pregnant and it really has thrown my body out of whack. The 1st trimester has been awful so far! I can't wait to have my energy back! Hope I can play again soon!

Super excited about my partners!  I started one project last night and I'm in love with it.  My mom was sad that I only had enough for one.  Guess I should try to find more supplies to make one for us.
