Swap name: What Will The Mail Carrier Think: Il Mio Valentino Postcard Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: crafty_dame
Sign-up date range: 1/12/05 1/22/05
Date to send item by: 02/01/05

Limited to a certain number of people? no limit! everyone will be expected to send postcards to at least 12 people.
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Most definitely. And there will be no limit to international folks, so please be aware when you sign up that POSTAGE MIGHT BE A BIT MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MOST POSTCARD SWAPS, depending on how many international crafters sign up.

All ages allowed? yep!

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate:
YES

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month:
YES

Details of swap:
Create at least 12 postcards on a Valentine/Anti-Valentine theme, and youll receive at least 12 postcards back. This swap is for postcards that you have made, not purchased. (though purchased elements are fine!) Though 12 is the MINIMUM number of cards you have to make, all participants will be given the full list of addresses, and if you choose to, you're welcome to make them for everyone else as well. Keep in mind that even if you make 20 postcards, you're only guaranteed to get 12 back (though you'll probably get more!). If you've got the extra time, feel free to go crazy!

YOUR POSTCARDS MUST BE VALENTINE THEMED. THEY CAN BE ANTI-VALENTINE IF YOUD LIKE, BUT THEY MUST BE VALENTINE THEMED.

Why is this a great swap? Because its inexpensive! (postcards only cost one stamp in most countries!) Because youll get some great pieces of art! Because one of the things you miss most about elementary school is valentines!

How to make your postcards: start with a firm, sturdy base. This can be cardstock, old cereal boxes, old folders, cut up cardboard boxes, whatever youd like, as long as it will hold up in the mail. Do anything youd like that fits the theme, collage, photography, prints, paint, glitter, whatever your little heart desires. Add quotes, add poetry, add song lyrics. Whatever you can think of. Be totally creative, just keep it mailable. (Clear contact paper goes a long way towards keeping postcards mailable! It protects them from the weather, and keeps pieces from falling off, or a trail of glitter from being left in post offices throughout the world!)

Keep in mind that some of the swappers might have parents or little kids living with them, and keep it appropriate.


IF YOUR POSTCARDS ARENT APPROPRIATE (nudity, sexual, coarse language, etc) PUT THEM IN AN ENVELOPE!

Dont forget to put your craftster username somewhere on the card! Fill in the back with whatever youd like, a little letter, some quotes, your favourite links, instructions for a valentines craft, your favourite recipe, whatever.
Just remember to keep it valentines or anti-valentines!


When can I start? You can start on your postcards as soon as you sign up! Ill send out the addresses to everyone via personal message the day after the swap closes. For inspiration on your postcards, check out the swap gallery both for past postcard swaps as well as other mail art swaps.

REMEMBER: you cant get delivery confirmation on postcards, so this will be on the honour system. Remember the golden rule: treat others as youd like to be treated! If you need to pull out of the swap, or youre gonna be late sending them (please dont! we want to receive them by valentines day!), LET ME KNOW ASAP!

okay, so the swap is full.

but don't stop sending me your info! i've already had two more people pm me since this filled, and there's still plenty of time before sign up ends.

we'll just do two identical swaps. is that cool with everyone?

all the rules. etc wil be the same, there will just be two groups of people swapping.

the second group might be a bit smaller, but i think that's okay. would it be tacky for me to be in both groups? i really really want to!

opinions?
