The full moon has been associated with Magick and Mahem, Riots and Romance, Werewolves and wanderlust, Friday the 13th and other omens of bad luck.
The crescent moon is associated with starry nights and new beginnings.
Eclipses of the moon portent great things, or doom.
There have been songs created, colors named, and sayings perpetuated based on phases of the moon.
Full Moon reflections adorn many a living room wall, and crescent moons are featured on vintage greeting cards.

The Moon has been memorialized in songs – “Moon River”, “Moonlight Sonata”, "Shine on Harvest Moon"
The Moon has been celebrated in Children's poetry and Mother Goose Rhymes - " The Cow Jumped Over the
Moon" and Robert Louis Stevenson's "A Children's Garden of Verses."
The Moon has given its name (from the Latin “luna”) to lunacy and lunatics
The Full Moon has been cursed by hospitals and police (due to the lunatics that seem to abound on full moons).
The Full Moon has been the bane of werewolves (I used to be a werewolf but I'm all right nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.)
The Full Moon is celebrated by the Chinese with Lunar Festivals, the popular Lantern Moon Festival and yummy Mooncakes!!

There are certain plants that grow better, or have more potency, when planted on the Full Moon.
There are common sayings - "Once in a Blue Moon", "Beware the Blood Moon", "Wait for the Gibbons Moon"

Your cards can focus on pretty moons or stormy moons.
Full moons or crescent moons.
Rising moons or setting moons.
You can show gentle lovers enjoying a moonlit walk, or weird animals which have been affected by the full moon.
You can show Chinese Lunar traditions, or Wiccan Full Moon Celebrations.
Or you can create ATC's that have the moon and/or moonlight in them in some form. It could be the sky at night, reflection on water, view through a window.
Anything goes, as long as the main focus is a moon.

This coming weekend, March 19th, we will have the largest, closest, full moon in 18 years. (We had a close new moon in 2005, but not a full moon.)

This close moon is called a supermoon, or a new or full moon that is 90% or greater of its closest approach to earth.

I expect you to be pulled into my swap by this Supermoon, so you should be signing up for this swap no later than Monday. LOL:twitcy:

icekat
03-14-2011, 10:34 PM

I didn't know that about this full moon. I'll be sure to get outside to soak it up.

Vicki Z
03-15-2011, 08:18 AM
lol Vicki!

I didn't know that about this full moon. I'll be sure to get outside to soak it up.


On the bright side, the moon will be 90% closer, and 17% brighter, and will appear to be 10% bigger.:jiggy:

On the down side, the supermoon is often associated with extreme weather and other natural events. Some say it may have contributed to the recent earthquake in Japan.:twitcy:

The last extreme super moon occurred on January 10th, 2005, right around the time of the 9.0 Indonesia earthquake.

Whatever you do, take care.;)

hmm wow! Interesting info there... Thats pretty crazy i guess its plausible too if u factor in the moons gravitational pull on the earth maybe when it gets closer it knocks the tide off whack n tectonic plates....

I have signed you up, and I have sent my address to you via PM.

Please remember that deadline for cards to be in my hands is May 13, so you have only 10 days to get your cards to me.
It sounds like your cards are already done, and you are in the US, so the deadline shouldn't be a problem. This is just a reminder.

The flu bug has got me down, but as my cards were nearly finished I got to complete two of them today. The others will be done by tonight. Unfortunately, tomorrow is Sunday, but all cards will be in the mail by Monday. Wish me luck with this flu, and here are the first two:

Mail sometimes takes 5 days to get from me in NC to my parents in South Texas... It's amazing how long it can take sometimes.

Vicki Z
05-09-2011, 08:02 PM
I am beginning to panic! I mailed my cards to you on May 3 and so far they are not listed as recieved. Texas is not that far from Minnesota, they should have gotten there by now! Or, conversely, perhaps Minnesota is farther than I think. Mail usually makes it to my friend in NH in 2 days. Well, here's hoping they get there in time. If it takes that long I am going to have to start revising my idea of how much time it takes for mail to get places, especially international things!

Your cards arrived this morning, but all I received when I picked up mail was a notification of postage due.
Unfortunately, it looks like you stacked your cards, wrapped them in your return envelope, and tucked them in the envelope.

The reason I specifically request a business size envelope is so you can lay your cards side by side, three in a row, that is to say "stagger" your cards the entire length of the longer envelope. If you "stack" the cards, the stack makes the mailing more than 1/4 inch thick, and anything that is over 1/4" thick, not only activates an extra charge at the post office, but one has to come in during business hours to retrieve the parcel.

Your cards are here.

My cards hit the mail this morning. Just realized that I sent a regular return envie instead of a business envie. Silly me. I did include extra postage so it should be ok. Please excuse the massive taping on the arriving envie. I was reusing a padded one. Sorry for the extra work. I tried to post my cards to the gallery but they're too big. No time to do it now. Everyone can be surprised. Can't wait to get mine.

Vicki Z

My goodness, don't beat yourself up so much.
We all make mistakes, but if no one points out how to make things better, nothing gets fixed.

The USPS website does mention problems with thicker letters, and the fact that they charge extra for over-weight, and over-thick, but not everyone knows this, which is why I try to point it out.

All I ask is that you pay attention next time. I will thank you, as will other hosts.:)

Don't remind me! I'm taking a flight on Friday and am already freaked out!

In my spiritual tradition, 13 is a lucky number, as there are 13 moons in a year. So I bet it will go smoothly and maybe even better than expected!

Thanks, Phoenix.
I totally agree!!!!!:)

Friday the 13th has always been my lucky day.
On a mundane level, I find the best sales, I get the closest parking place, I score on the best lunch ever.
On a personal level, I achieve my current goal, and it always turns out better than expected.
On a spiritual level, I never have to fear Friday the 13th - I always look forward to it, and plan things around it.

That completes all the cards I was expecting, so I am going to start sorting out returns.

Thanks to everyone for some awesome art.

Cards have been sorted, and returns have been mailed.

Hopefully US participants should start receiving their cards by the end of this week.
International participants, unfortunately, usually have to wait a little longer to get their returns.

Everyone turned in some awesome art, so I hope everyone will be pleased with their returns.
Please remember to give iTrader (to me) and rep points (to the players whose cards you receive) when the cards arrive so that everyone knows where their creations ended up.

Thank you for participating.

Newbie here, just figuring out how to give rep points, just hit the "you rock" button, right?

Vicki Z
05-27-2011, 08:11 AM
Yes, you click on the You Rock! button, and that gives points.

Please also notice that there is a drop down box that shows up when you click on the You Rock! button.:cool:
This means you can also make comments, and/or specifiy which card you received, and why you liked it, which is even nicer than "just" giving points.:)

Vicki Z
05-27-2011, 10:38 AM
There are only 4 people I have not yet heard from, so I am closing this Swap.
Should you realize you have not given out itrades and You Rock! points, you are still able to do so, you simply will no longer be able to post comments once this Thread is archived.

Thanks again to everyone for some AWESOME ART
I hope to see you all in another swap.
