*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.* This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!   Grin



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) 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 of received ATCs is required for this swap.  Smiley


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, 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


SAMPLE CLAIMS POST:

Quote
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)   sneezing
2)   purple people eaters
3)   wandering men of grief
4)   jumping jehosophats
5)   birds in hats

ONCE YOU HAVE MADE A CLAIM:

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.  Smiley

ONCE YOU HAVE SENT OR RECEIVED A CARD
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.)October ATC Swap--Sent[/i] or October ATC Swap--Received (or some variant of that, lol)
3.  Be sure and include (1)the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme ]and (3)who sent it to whom(4), in each email 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!   Grin Easy as pie!

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


Send by 12/16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> YowzaSwapper = fantasmic theme

Send by 12/17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> WowwieSwapper = stupendous theme
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --->WooHooYeeHawSwapper07 = yet another fascinating theme

PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE THIS IN EVERY PM!!!

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

POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
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!   Grin

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

FEEDBACK
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 gallery!

ANY QUESTIONS?
If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer.  This thread is specifically for claims only.  Smiley

Hiya everyone!  I'm Jill, I'm 28 and I live in Washington State.  I'm good with nudity and profanity, but please nothing political or religious.  My favorite things to do are reading (mainly fantasy/sci-fi), cooking/baking, playing video games with my husband, and crafting (duh!).

MY THEMES:
-Harry Potter ABC's (Available Letters: L, M, O, R, T, V, W, X, Y, Z) (I'd prefer the cards to all be vertical with the letter selected being rather larger on the card)
-Halloween
-Scottish/Highland Dance or anything Scottish in general
-Trees
-Wine
-Dragons
-Gnomes
-Mythical creatures
-Vikings
-Wings
-Katamari Dymacy (video game)

-Your Location
-Mustaches/beards

I claim Imera for Halloween
Due 10/14

1 claim/0 sent/0 received

Hi all!  I'm Robin from Alabama.  

I guess I'll start with the "I don't likes" - no nudity please, no gore, no gothic, no religious.

Also, I am planning on framing some of my ATCs,  so nothing too 3D-ish.
I really like the hand drawn or hand painted look.  I like a collage look with different papers.

My themes are:

Owls
Swirly Trees
Vintage VW cars
Vintage travel trailers (like airstreams)
Typography  - would love 1 card for each letter of the alphabet.  (I want to frame them altogether)
Zentangle
CAt in the Hat or The Grinch (or most any Dr. Suess books)
Nautical (anchors, boats, bouys)
Beach (flip flops, palms trees, ocean scene, beach huts)
Funky flowers
Fat Birds (like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/32779678/wool-fat-bird-coffee-cozy
Embroidery
Scissors
bicycles
pumpkins
swirls
Collage
Old maps
Vintage book pages as background
Needle/thread/floss
REcycyled magazine pages as backgroud or used in a collage
recycled magazine pages strips
Mandalas
Life is Good (clothing/product line)
Compass Rose

(Sept claims: letter A-redstar13-received, lips-mantisbh-received, black/white-kitiza-received, candy-mantisbh-due 09/27-sent, letter R-raeraggs-received, wine-jillybeans-received, capital letter S-michellescraftbasket-due 10/9-sent, typography-Oodelally-due 10/11-sent)

(Oct Claims: Halloween-Imera-due 10/14)
