2 x 2 TWINCHIES Swap

For those of you who find the inchie swap a little too small or fiddly, howabout this one, cards will be 2" x 2" square, again decorated and embellished - these are a good size for using as card toppers too. There is a few restrictions on theme (no porn, religious, political), any type of art medium or embellishments, whatever you prefer to use, just make it your best work! Please pop each card in a little envie to protect your work, and add your user name, date and where you are from on back of each card. Please also enclose an addressed envelope for the returns, I will cover postage for these, hence the reason I am starting with a small group.
The swap is for 3 cards - 12 players
Please comment in thread, when cards are postal/received.
If I have forgotten anything, please let me know!

IS EVERONE HAPPY WITH 3 CARDS OR WOULD YOU LIKE TO SWAP MORE ????????? ( Maximum 9 )

Hi Ria - can I play please??

OriginalYouth

Oh man, this DOES sound like a good size. The inchies are just too small for my old eyes... :P I'll have to think about coming back here...

Bluellen
02-26-2008, 12:01 AM
Add me please...I have some supermergatroid inchies that are too big to be inchies and I'd love to make them into 2 x 2's!

Ria
02-26-2008, 03:36 AM
Jonquil, originalyouth, Bluellen, cparmelee and AmyS - you have all been added. Thanks for joining in!

Loralou
02-26-2008, 05:46 AM
How about making it a 9for9 like the inchies...that way if people want to frame them, 9 looks very good together? Just a suggestion!

OriginalYouth
02-26-2008, 12:22 PM
Hey wait, me either! I can't commit to play just yet.... just lurking and watching all the fun.

Ria
02-26-2008, 02:02 PM
Ok! I've removed original youth and cparmelee, and added a comment to thread if anyone would like to trade more cards than the 3 I suggested. Are you joining up Loralou?

Bluellen
02-26-2008, 02:14 PM
hey, now I'm on there twice! lol!

Robin
02-26-2008, 03:11 PM
I have mine finished and ready to put in the mail by Friday, I only made 3 is that okay? ( that was the first number posted ).

Ria
02-26-2008, 03:40 PM
3 is fine - could be costly to post more! Thanks Robin!

HHC
02-27-2008, 12:21 AM
I'd like to play please! :)

Ria
02-27-2008, 01:34 PM
I'm happy with just 3 as I will have to pay all postage and I'm only in a temporary job at present, so money's a bit tight.


HHC - you are now signed up ! Thanks for joining



I would actually prefer to swap 3, as originally posted. I think 3 can be displayed nicely in a row or column. If it had been 9/9 I probably wouldn't have signed up (not enough time!).

Just my 2 agurot (cents). ;)

Robin
02-27-2008, 01:48 PM
Ria - mine are in the mail to you today!

There is an extra one for you, thanks for letting me play along.

I uploaded them in my gallery if you would like to see, the extra one is for you. :jiggy:

Ria
02-27-2008, 07:06 PM
Robin - they are wonderful, great work, thanks also for the extra one.

Ria
02-28-2008, 01:16 PM
Hi lola, if you want to do more then you can, but no more than 9, if this swap is successful, then I will host it again about a month after this one closes, but I may add a theme next time!!!!!

Hey, at least I will have one player!

i would like to join...can I send in 9? i would like to display them in a little frame, and nine would make a nice square. You won't have to pay my postage I am in the UK :)

Ria
02-29-2008, 03:44 AM
Loralou, you're signed up, one player from the UK!!!!!
Yes 9 is fine, don't worry about postage - I am happy to pay, I have joined many swaps before, so about time I paid postage.
Thanks for wanting to play with us.
Hugs

Ria
02-29-2008, 06:55 PM
Thanks to all of you who have joined up so far, just one spot left open, hopefully someone will join tonight, I'm about to close down for the night, if anyone else wants to join, please post in this thread, if more than one, I can add extra places!

We have a full crew now, so get 'crafting', I think this is going to be a fun swap!

Loralou

Hiya spent the day making my cards. I experimented by making backgrounds using metallic gold wax on normal card so that it melted into the card and then embellished with further wax.

Loralou, these look beautiful! Can't wait to see them in 'real' life.

Well done!

Ria - can you use US dollar bills or no?

Maybe instead of money, if you really would like to add your bit to postage - you could add an international US stamp (80 cents? or 90 by now?) that Ria could use when joining up for US based swaps. That's what some people have done in my swaps (since I am in Europe as well). Just an idea! :idea:

Ria
03-03-2008, 03:46 PM
Hey girls - It's very nice of you all to offer towards post, but I wouldn't have hosted this, if I didn't think I could afford it - so please, just make your cards and enjoy the swap!!!!!!

I make a few of these the other day. I really like the size! We'll have to do more 2x2's later.

I think we should call them 'deuces'! :D

Love the name 'deuces', when I started this thread, I was trying to think of a suitable name, but couldn't come up with anything so just called them 2 x 2, but I think Desuces is a good title for this size.

Lovely "deuces"!

Inchies are inchies, maybe we can try and set the name for the 2x2s at deuces haha. I am going to call them that from now on!

Jonquil, these are wonderful, love the variety, this is now getting so exciting, can't wait to see them all together.
I'm hoping to take a photo of the whole collection before I post them back out to everyone! It should look quite spectacular!

I finished up my Deuxes as well. I like this size to work with! Made 4 - and a thank you ATC for Ria as a hostess gift. We could trade up to 9 Deuces right?

Kynara
03-13-2008, 07:21 PM
I love the idea of calling them deuces!

OriginalYouth
03-13-2008, 08:28 PM
dueces! Wait, how do you spell it? Deuces? ANYwhooooo, someone politely informed me that we can't call them that, because some people say 'I have to go Deuces" for when they have to poop! Uh-oh!

Man, and we were all excited about the clever name. Time to find another!

000ps!

Craftyvox - Yes, trade can be up to 9 - can't wait to see what you have created!

Shame about the name - thought it was pretty cool! I have never heard poops called that before!!!!!!!! Well you live and learn, have to get my thinking cap on!

HHC

Mine will be off in tomorrow mornings mail. They are done with beeswax on a cool wrapping paper (given to me by an arty friend) layered with tissue paper, images and embellishments.

Ria
03-15-2008, 06:51 AM
Oh! these are gorgeous too, what a wonderful selection everyone is sending - I will definately be hosting another swap like this soon!!!!!!

We could call them 'Twinchies' - have seen them called this elsewhere in the last couple of days

craftyvox
03-17-2008, 11:21 AM
Twinchies sounds nice as well.

I kept miswriting Dueces.. dunno why - maybe cause due is spelled that way? Whenever I hear deuces I don't think of poo though, I think of Texas Hold'em Poker! :)

craftyvox

Since the gallery is currently down, here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pixelvox/2339928489/) is a photograph of my 2x2s ( I don't know what to call the right now!!)

Hi everyone - 2 more packs arrived today first from AmyS - beautiful cards and thanks for all the extras, much appreciated, second from Bluellen, again thanks for the extras, and fabulous cards.
I have had a pm from lola to say hers were returned by Post office for incorrect address, so have decided to wait a little longer for hers to arrive, hope you all don't mind too much, for the extra wait, hopefully they will arrive quickly. I will post on this thread as soon I can send out returns!

Bluellen
03-31-2008, 12:18 AM
No worries, Ria!

craftyvox
04-01-2008, 07:31 AM
No worries indeed Ria, we'll just have to practice some patience!:) It would be a shame for Lola if hers wouldn't be able to be included in the swap!

Ria
04-02-2008, 04:19 PM
I will hold off until Saturday morning, but then will swap out, if lola's is later than that I will swap with her as I have made several.
I don't want to leave any longer as I would like to start new swap thread fior Twinchies by theme on the weekend.

Ria
04-06-2008, 06:05 AM
OK, I have now sorted all the little 'twinchies' out and they will be ready to post on Monday, I hope you enjoy the cards you receive, please don't forget to leave rep points for each other, and please post on this thread when you receive, so that I know everyone got theirs, I will add to list on each notification of receipt.
Also please look out for next 'Twinchie' swap which I will be posting shortly, so if you want to play again, please sign up!

this is pic of all 'twinchies' received including hostess gifts and ones I put into swap, don't they look awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loralou
04-08-2008, 04:36 PM
Mine arrived this morning, thanks everyone for a great swap, although my initial plan of framing them in a set of 9 won't work as they are just too different from each other, I will have to find another way of displaying them.
Thanks Ria!

Ria
04-09-2008, 01:17 AM
Pleased to hear some arrived at their destination. How about joining in one of the themed swaps I will be hosting a display set?????

Bluellen
04-10-2008, 03:59 PM
oooo I got mine today!!! I love them! Thanks to Ria for being a great hostess and coming up with this idea (couldn't have redeemed myself from the inchies-and-a-half fiasco without you, ria!!) and thanks to Pamitha, Loralou, and Goatgoddess for FABULOUS twinchies!!

Ria
04-11-2008, 02:08 PM

Ria
04-13-2008, 02:12 PM
Great stuff, almost all of them have found their way to their new homes now! I loved hosting this swap, and have ideas to last at least all of this year at one theme per month ( I think I may have a pop a couple of inbetweenies in ....UM!!!!!!!)

Ria
04-15-2008, 02:13 AM
Amy, Pleased your's have arrived also, also happy to hear everyone so far has enjoyed this swap!

Ria
04-17-2008, 02:24 AM
Oh dear Craftyvox! did I send you one of your own back ? I will post you another (one of mine) to make up for it - thought I was doing so well too!!!!!! DOH!
Only 4 more lots to find their new homes then I can close this thread!

craftyvox
04-17-2008, 09:01 PM
Oh Ria, NO WORRIES at all. I hosted an inchies swap myself (9 per set, and some had sent in 2 or more sets, and like 13 participants.. hmm now I am thinking maybe you were in there as well lol silly me, but it's late and I should go to bed anyway so can't think straight!:)) and sorting the returns out was an epic thing!

If you have one spare I'd love to trade it for my Twinchie :) I'll send you mine in return then!

OK! It's a done deal, I will post out to you tomorrow.

Thanks!


Oh Ria, NO WORRIES at all. I hosted an inchies swap myself (9 per set, and some had sent in 2 or more sets, and like 13 participants.. hmm now I am thinking maybe you were in there as well lol silly me, but it's late and I should go to bed anyway so can't think straight!:)) and sorting the returns out was an epic thing!

If you have one spare I'd love to trade it for my Twinchie :) I'll send you mine in return then!
