Hey... I don't know how I missed this...but I never noticed this board. Huh

Oh well...
I'm trying to think of some new themes for February...I think some of mine are too obscure or difficult.

 I'm having a brainfart...any suggestions?

Oh! I always have that issue. I want to revamp and have new interesting themes, yet I really want the ones I have listed. LOL! Good luck!

KittyHerman, I feel the same way too.  I'd really love to just have 3 or 4 things on my list because they are my faves, but I fear that that won't give people enough options.  I've seen people put something inspired by their wist or pinterest on their list of themes.  I've also seen an artist's choice option.  Smiley

That's true...I can put the Pinterest option down. That means I have to get my Pinterest in order. It's all over the place.

I'm all ready to start claiming for February.....just waiting to be accepted  Smiley  Even though I'm not done my alphabet yet I think I better give some other choices so people don't get bored with claiming me.

oh a month into the new year and I just found the new discussion thread!

I took a few months off atcs but am really enjoying being back in it.  I thouht I would take it easy on swaps this year but I'm already committing to a number.  yikes.

A couple ideas for picking themes:

think of a medium you really like: I put linocut on in january and loved the cards I got from it.

pick a new animal: I try to always put one animal on, often works for some people

pick a favourite tv show or movie: also good to change it up, I got a Sons of Anarchy card this month!

pick a place you're from or have visited or want to go

just some ideas Smiley

can't wait for more atc's.

Personally, I love to use themes that are pretty simple but make you imagine really wild things. My 'blue hair', 'creatures with green eyes', 'interesting words', and 'languages' themes are all very vague, but I've gotten so many great results from each of them, and none of them are alike. I also like the ones that are kind of random and really make you think, like 'people with crowns', 'I dream of jellyfish', and 'moon on a string'.

I'm hoping my newest one, 'What is Victoria's secret?' might catch on. I imagine a lot of funny and unexpected answers to that question. They wouldn't even have to have anything to do with the store!

I look at other people's list for ideas. I also look on Etsy for cards I like and will list that as a theme.
