- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES

Details of swap:

This is an un-themed ATC swap -- the choice of what to send your partner is entirely up to you, the artist!  Smiley  Participants will be assigned to groups of four -- you will send 2 cards to everyone in your group.  This means you will send out 6 cards total, 2 each to 3 other people AND you will receive 6 cards total (2 each from 3 other people).  The cards you receive will be a surprise!  I will assign partners within 24 hours of sign-ups closing, and will PM all participants with the necessary information.

You can send cards that you've previously made but have not yet traded, you can make new cards just for this swap, you can customize your cards to your partners' tastes, or not -- it's your choice! 

The send date is May 5.  The crafting time is intentionally short -- if you are going to send existing cards, you're good to go; if you are going to make new cards, you can start on them as soon as you sign up.  There's no need for you to wait until partners are assigned, since the choice of what to send is up to you!

UPDATE:  MULTIPLE GROUPS.  If you would like to be in more than one group (up to 2 total), please let me know when you sign up (or PM me to let me know if you are already signed up).  If you are in two groups, you will be mailing 2 cards each to 6 partners.  I will accommodate everyone the best I can, on a first come, first served basis.  Since we are swapping in groups of 4, I can't promise that everyone who wants one will get a second group, but I can promise that I will do the very best I can for everyone.  After sign-ups close, I'll assign partners and let you know then how many groups you will be in.

Stay in good communication with your organizer (that's me!) and your partners.  Do not hesitate to contact me -- you can't PM me too much!  You must PM me...

    * ...when you send your cards.
    * ...when you receive your cards.
    * ...if you are going to be sending late (this is very important)

If you are mailing from the US:  Since ATCs are so small, you will not be required to get a delivery confirmation number (DCN).  Please keep a note of when you send your cards. 

If you are sending to a partner in a country different from yours, you must send by airmail.

If your cards have not been received by May 18, you will have to resend.

Please post a message in this thread after you've signed up, to help you keep track of developments and so that we can all see who's on board!

For information about what an ATC (Artist Trading Card) is, see this message.

In other swaps I've organized, some people have been confused by the question "Would you *prefer* shipping to an address outside your own country?"

I ask that because I know that sometimes people get partnered over and over and over again with the same handful of people in their country, and that those people might actually prefer partners in other countries.  Or sometimes, people like getting mail or stamps from other countries.  AND some people want to help out the swap by saying it's ok for them to send to another country, but they might not really want to.  So having that bit of info helps me assign partners.

Please don't hesitate to answer "no" or "no preference" to that question.

Wow...I'm the first to say I'm in?

Yes you are!  Smiley  You weren't the first to sign up though.  Wink  You all are fast this morning!

I pm'd Sewknitter that I got your matchbox, so she should be able to clear that one for you today! I wouldn't mind adding some of those cards to my collection. (hint, hint  Wink  )
