*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month.  PM me the above questionnaire to get started.  Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps.*

How this swap works:

Person A will post a list of themes.  Person B will make a claim on one of A's themes and post their own list.  Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post their own list.  Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post their own list etc...

When you are making your claim please also include your current status, location and personal preferences.  Here is an example of what your post should look like:



I claim Person A for a zombie 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)   funny foods
2)   polka dots
3)   monster movies
4)   The letter E
5)   cats


You would then send a PM to Person A and ask them for their address.  You have 2 weeks to complete each card so have fun and do your best.  


Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  It's extremely helpful if you label the message as October ATC Swap and mention who you are sending a card to or receiving a card from.

Examples :


Sent Zombies to Person A due August 14

Received Zombies from Person B due August 14


Friends of Craftster are free to have 10 outstanding claims at once. (Become a Friend of Craftster)
Others are free to have 7 outstanding claims at once.
New swappers will be free to have more claims once their first card has been received.

You can make as many (or as few) claims as you want through out 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.

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received. Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the gallery (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).  Good communication is always cool!  

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer.

Howdy!  suereal here. I'm new to this swap, and to ATCs in general.  I did submit an ATC to the Quilting Arts swap and was accepted for the 2007 1000 Artist Trading Card Book (#0740 Mewtina if anyone has the book) and I can't wait to get more serious about things.

I claim kartiana for ~(emotion/adjective) Panda..to start with. There are several that I have ideas for. But I'm new and recovering from some surgery, so I don't want to over extend.

Claimed:1
In transit:0
Received:0

I'm 47 years old and live near Vancouver Canada.  I like strange things. And no uber girly stuff please (not a pink person). Favo colors are orange, chartruse, and purple in no particular order. My list is a bit shorter then most it seems, so I hope it's not too limiting.

*Poodles (black or odd colors.  NOT pink)
*Skulls(not sugar skulls, and not too creepy)
*Eyes
*Glow In the Dark
*They Might Be Giants (favo band)
*Modern Quilts
*Tentacle (squids, cuttlefish, jellyfish mostly)
*Happy mutant animals
*Things with wings (bugs, mot to cute faeries, c'thulu, dragons, eyes, etc.)
*Cryptozoology
*Deep sea critters (the odder the better)
*Obscure or fictional gods, goddesses, saints or angles (no demons please) in charge of odd subjects.
*Steampunkish

OKie...guess that's it! Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Claimed: this one

Hi!  I'm 32, living in southern central Indiana.

Please nothing religious or gorey.  Nudity, swearing, no problem.

*nudey fairies or sexy fairies
*pin-up girls (doesn't matter what era)
*big-eyed frogs
*This poem from Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers (For those unfamiliar with the excerpt, The Pickwick Papers was Dickens first book, and was a satire, and this "great poetry" is satirical):

 "Ode to an Expiring Frog"

     '"Can I view thee panting, lying
     On thy stomach, without sighing;
     Can I unmoved see thee dying
     On a log
     Expiring frog!"'

     '"Say, have fiends in shape of boys,
     With wild halloo, and brutal noise,
     Hunted thee from marshy joys,
     With a dog,
     Expiring frog!"'

*anything glittery or sparkly
*"twisting midnight"--whatever your interpretation of that phrase is.
*Disney's Beauty and the Beast
*goddesses
*just one color theme: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, brown (thanks Kartiana!), pink
*pirates
*mini scrapbook pages--ready to insert mini photos
*textured
*your favorite swear words (gasp! lol)
*The Lord of the Rings: especially the characters Frodo and Sam, Legolas.  I'd love to see all types of interpretations on this LOTR theme, please don't restrict yourself by any means to the movies.
