(Scroll down in the swap info under this questionnaire to the area "Once you have sent or received a card"; the answer is in red.):


*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, and that you have good communication.** This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  



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, as little as 1) 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 pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.


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.

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., the number of cards 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 to whom you've sent them.
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)   New Years Baby
2)   Resolutions
3)   Food w/ Faces
4)   Inspiring Quotes
5)   Your Favorite Medium
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.  


ONCE YOU HAVE SENT OR RECEIVED A CARD
1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.
    (It's also good form to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  
2.  Please include one of these at the title of the message: December ATC Swap--Sent or December ATC Swap--Received
     Be sure to include the month!
3.Be sure and include the following in each pm to the organizer:
  • (1)"send by" date
  • (2)theme
  • (3)sender
  • (4)receiver

For example, you could use this format:

DUE DEC 17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper (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.  

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!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the swap (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 swap!

Susie Apple made the last claim in January:

I claim YennaMuffin for "Create Your Own Animal"!

(3/2/1)

I live in Orlando, FL. I love warm colors. Mustard yellow is my favorite. I love odd, strange, and whimsical things. I'm never offended, so let your imagination run wild. I do keep my ATCs in a baseball card style binder, so if possible try and keep it 2D, but if you're too excited and want to break away from the parameters, I'm not going to mind.

Person Body + Object Head
Creatures That Are Too Cool For School (ex: a cyclops with a gnarly tattoo)
People with Antlers
Eyes and Eyeballs or People with One Eye or Three Eyes (or even 20)
Surreal Collage
Beasts with Lots of Teeth
Let Your Child Draw a Monster (descriptions on the back are welcome)
Bugs and/or Mushrooms
A French Word or Phrase
Retro Science Fiction
Your Favorite Thing to Eat (be it a meal or candy or even something specific, like feta cheese mmmm...)
Little Lulu
Lyrics from The White Stripes

I claim spikefan for winter landscape.
1st claim, 0 ,0.

Hi it's Meg... I once had a Vermont license plate that said exactly that... now it hangs on my wall.  Have moved four times in the last year... life has been crazy, often with no internet.  Need some ATC crafting to help with my sanity.

My list ----

anything Scottish
anything in turquoise color
unlikely greeting card
wild cats - lynx, bobcat, catamount, etc.
ferns
tiny adorable woodland creatures
all things paranormal or inexplicable (unexplainable?)
illustrate your favorite classical music piece

thanx for claiming me!

Hi, Anna here - your local Swap host and ATC addict Smiley
Wading through the snow in Germany (where the weather decidedly ignores my pleas for spring!)

I have a list.
But I don't remember much of it, so here's the short version:

Anything with antlers, wings or both.
Fancy anything
Snow and ice queens
A portrait of me. PM for a photo reference.
Exotic Locations (preferably without snow)
And ...artist's choice!

Thanks

I claim blupaisan for wild cats.

1 Claims / 0 Sent / 0 Received

Location: Michigan (Upper Peninsula), USA

Preferences:  I like monsters/creatures, mythology, toys (both boys and girls varieties), retro video games, the Sword & Sorcery/fantasy genre, animals/nature, and women.  Violence, profanity, nudity, gore, sex, religion, politics, etc., don't bother or offend me.  I don't have any allergies or other concerns that would prohibit particular materials or media, so use whatever you like.  Over-sized or thick/3-dimensional ATCs are fine by me, as I don't even own a card album anyway.  Unless one of my themes listed below specifically indicates otherwise, it doesn't matter to me what artistic approach you take so long as you faithfully adhere to the subject matter.

Themes (these aren't listed in order of preference):

- A "scratch off" card of some sort.  This could be a fake lotto/gaming ticket, a drawing with a secret surprise, etc.--it's up to you, but the scratch-able portion should actually work.  I used to make these, with wax from a silver or gold Crayola crayon for the scratch-off area(s), when I was a kid.
- Monster High Werecat Twins (Meowlody & Purrsephone--both together, not one or the other!)
- An image (whatever you want) made for use with 3D glasses (i.e., a strereoscopic picture done in red and blue).
- Your choice of one of the Major Arcana from a Tarot deck (i.e., The Lovers, Justice, The Fool, Death, etc.)
- A goddess from any real-world religion/mythology (i.e., Durga, Pallas Athena, Ishtar, Freya, etc.)
- A "Where's Waldo" type card.  It doesn't have to actually be Waldo, just a "cluttered" card where you visually hunt for something specific within a sea of similar things.
- A dollhouse interior (a single room or multiple floors are both fine).
- A feline mermaid.
- My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (G4) Rainbow Dash.

curiosity cabinet
rust
mark making

miniatures
sriracha
teeth
