*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, 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)   O Christmas Tree
2)   Cute Animals in Stockings
3)   Purple and Silver
4)   Santa-Animal Hybrid
5)   Holiday Cookies
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 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, since I generally run multiple months at a time)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message 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!) Easy as pie!

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

DUE DEC 16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> YowzaSwapper (fantasmic theme)

DUE DEC 17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 (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 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 swap gallery!

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

Hi and welcome to another month of ATCs!

Jenn90000 was the last to claim in November's swap, so she will be starting us off this month!  Here is her list!

Quote
Hi! Smiley  I am Jennifer and I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband 3 kids and 2 cats.
I am new to the ATCs but love papercrafting, scrapbooking etc, so this IS a fun low stress way to craft.
While not opposed to receiving anything, I prefer family friendly so it can be displayed and shared.  Non-family friendly will be loved but put away.

My Themes are (in random order):

1 - Artist Choice (seriously I have no ATCs so go for it.)
2 - Doctor Who
3 - Sherlock (any versions)
4 - yoga/zen
5 - geometric/zentangle
6 - funny and/or inspiring quotes for peace or happiness.  One of my favourites is 'be happy, it drives people crazy' https://www.pinterest.com/jenn90000/funny-happy-quotes/
7 - geeky or nerdy
8 - nature-trees, flowers, mountains, sunshine
9 - holidays (Any of your holidays - I am open to all religions and celebrations)
10 - pinterest inspired - https://www.pinterest.com/jenn90000/
11 - rainbow - need not be an actual rainbow, just the colours
12 - odd parenting advice
13 - onomatopoeia  ( https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267049452880374583/ )

Thanks for claiming me.

I claim blupaisan (hi Meg) for retro clothing.

1/0/0

Hi, I'm from Connecticut and moving into winter. Br-r-r-r. Lot's of dark green, gray and brown, but bright blue skies, when it isn't raining or snowing! Give me nature, gardening, hiking, and in winter, warm cats and a warm fire. I write and design training materials, working from home. What a treat.
I've been away for months and glad to be jumping in to ATC land again.Please no religious or political themes.

Themes:

- Things to do with snow. We tend to get alot this time of year.
- Fractured fairy tales. What's the true story or the after story?
- Curiosities
- From the land of Geekdom (female only please).
- You as a magical creature. An elf? A gnome? A fairy or witch. Who are you really?
- Humor: Talking veggies or appliances, funny quotes, whatever.
- Your choice of theme and pick a new technique to tryout on an ATC. Experiment.

That's enough for now. You can always make something up and just send it to me! I love being surprised.

Hi,  I am sort of a newbie, a little confused how this works, and I am unsure I have made many posts  Cry

But I have one Encaustic Atc with a postage stamp depicting winter I can offer in a tone of purple and white.  I could post a picture.  Again, I am unsure how to do this ....
