11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Re: Artist Trading Coins - Round 2 ; SU thru 12/18/18; SO 1/23/18 on: December 12, 2018 07:23:04 AM
Hopefully it will all get fixed soon.  If not maybe we can relax the rules for a while or do some personal swaps!

Argh, I have at least two swaps where everything's been received, but only since the feedback system went down. Sad  (details in this thread)  I'd love to join this if it becomes possible!!

I was looking forward to getting started but I am flexible and whatever you need to do is fine.

I wasn't thinking and posted a swap myself yesterday forgetting the feedback page was broken  Undecided

Hi all, an administrative note--

The feedback system is still offline (see thread here for details), so we may have to push the beginning of the swap back a few days.  If not starting until the 18th or 20th is going to mess with your plans (especially if you've already got this swap open in your feedback!), please send me a pm and I'll see if I can get you paired up informally before then.  I don't want anyone to miss out on getting/packing supplies before their holiday travel or anything.

all the gifts are really nice.  everyone made just great packages.

that mini quilt is super cool.

the stuffed yetis are really cute.

Love the birdhouse.

Omg - I love that knitted Tomte/Nisse.  I never heard of it but how adorable

Quaggy - glad you like the journal!  My initial plan was to make 5 signatures and I realized half way through that there was no way 5 would fit so I ended up doing 3, leaving extra space in between the signatures so it has room to expand if you add things too it.  When you said Izzy got ahold of the packages I was relieved to know she didn't touch day 11 too!  She would have tons of fun with it, I'm sure  Cheesy

I made this for @quaggy in the 12 Days of Christmas swap.
It is game pieces from a lot of different games that I have collected over the years, lots of E6000 glue, and acrylic paint.

(my phone has been taking crappy photos lately and I didn't realize it until I uploaded them to my computer  Sad  )















15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Artist Trading Coins - Round 2 ; SU TBD; SO TBD on: December 11, 2018 04:51:42 PM
Swap name: Artist Trading Coins - Round 2




Craftster member who is organizing this swap: geekgirl1000100
Sign-up date range: Dec 11 - TBD
Date to send item by: TBD

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? no
If so, which country?

Additional Age requirement? Must be 16 years old or older.
*Tracking #s are not required since these will be flat and possibly mailed for a single 1 or 2 ounce stamp, but you will have to resend if the card is not received*
* You can opt out of any International shipping but I would like to encourage people not to, an International stamp from the US is only $1.15.  This would be a good cheap swap to send internationally if you don't normally.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that a Tracking number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

What is an ATCoin?  It's like an ATC but instead of a 2.5"x3" rectangle, you work on a 2.5" circle.
If you don't have a 2.5" punch and want to buy blanks that are pre-cut, I found at least one etsy shop that sells them:

Round 1

Examples of ATCoins:

https://uglybugplans.com/2018/06/20/artist-trading-coins/
https://www.joggles.com/blog/getting-creative-with-artist-trading-coins/

You can also check out youtube and pinterest.

You will:
* make 3 ATCoins for your partner using the themes they list on their questionnaire
* choose 1, 2, or 3 partners
* use sturdy backgrounds. ATCoin backgrounds, like ATCs should be fairly sturdy. For example, printer paper would not be a good background, but cardstock or light cardboard is.


Please Note:
1. PMs should be labeled "Artist Trading Coins" with the appropriate action - Signup, send, receive.
2. Make ATCoins that you would like to receive. Do your best work.
3. I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of poor communication, late sending, or not meeting swap requirements in any other ways.
4. Please post in the thread regularly so we know you're still around; also please communicate upfront with your partner and organizer if there may be/are any issues with late sending. Communication will be noted in feedback.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: ATCoins
Craftster username:

Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (if your ATCoins are flat without raise embellishments, an internation stamp from the Us is only $1.15!)

Any allergens in your home?
Do you have any allergies?

Do you want 1, 2, or 3 partners?
What are your favorite colors?

Please list 10 themes, fandoms, general ideas of ATCoins you'd like to receive.  10 is a lot but it's nice to give your partner options!
If you are new to ATCs or ATCoins and need ideas, you could check out the monthly ATC swap and see what people list as themes.  you can be very specific ("cats walking on tightropes" or very generic ("woodland animals").

I love the deer/clothespon ornaments.

quaggy - the gingerbread men are baked polymer clay.
And those clothespin magnets are so useful.  I made some for myself and used them as note holders on the fridge and as chip/bag clips.  I did a washi tape craft event with my craft group and of all the things we did this was the favorite.  easy and useful!

The bobbin earrings are so cute!

17  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Any interest in an ATCoins (art coins) swap? on: December 09, 2018 06:12:21 AM
Would anyone be interested in another round of these?  I am in a crafting lull right now.  Cheesy
I could start signups soon and set a ling crafting period so we have something to work on over the holidays and into dreary January.

Probably same set up as last time, 3 ATCoins per partner and up to 3 partners.

I had a list of things I wouldn't mind having crafted for me like ATCs, pouches, magnets, etc.

Then a separate list of good little things.  I can't access my outbox right now, get some sort of parameter error.
from memory:
kittens
otter videos
reading a good book when I have no where to be
baking when it's snowing outside.  Which it is snowing right now! so I need to figure out what to bake.

I had other things and am drawing a blank right now.

My good little thing list were items that could be crafted for me in the swap, lol...like patches, pins, prayer flags, note cards...I can't remember what else.

Anyone else having problems seeing posts if you use  the Tapatalk app?

I don't use Tapatalk to read posts, just to upload pics and I haven't been able to upload pics in several days.
