Amerasu

Finished my cards - way early which is crazy for me! I'm usually the last of the last minuters. :)

Amerasu
05-10-2011, 08:01 AM
Hope you come back to join us, Mouseit :)

I'm sure some of you have seen the crazy hats some people wore to the royal wedding? I think the craziest one was on Princess Beatrice... or was it Eugenie? Anyway, it was totally bizarre, lol!

Some of the hats for the Kentucky Derby might provide some interesting inspiration too. I've seen some crazy ones there too.

Evalila

Juanita Rojas

My biggest regret is the hat I DIDN'T buy in Paris. Practicality can be stupid. Sign me up, please. I'm gonna draw that hat!!

Please add me to the list. What a fun swap!

Jennie
05-15-2011, 07:12 PM
Ok I finally uploaded my cards. They are made like the designs of Phillip Tracey Designer to the Royals and stars. Since the royal wedding I've been reading about him and his designs. One summer he did butterfly hats. Even Princess Beatrice wore one. I printed little butterflies and matched them backs to front so that it gave them dimension. One one you can see I used organza ribbon and another an owl feather

Amerasu
05-16-2011, 09:15 AM
Wow, so many great hats! Lots of fun ideas too! I'm really loving the butterflies. They remind me an awesome hat one of the Brit princesses wore - all colourful butterflies. It was really quite cool looking.

Anyone who needs my address, PM me please when you're ready! I'm only here about 5 minutes each day and respond quickest to PMs.

That was Princess Beatrice, and I think that hat was super-glued to her forehead!

Evalila
05-17-2011, 04:49 AM
Great cards everyone - and Tlouey, I LOVE yours!

Mine finally made it into the mail :)

Amerasu
05-17-2011, 09:35 AM
Yeah, that's the one, Juanita! The same for the crazy beige wedding hat she wore recently - it also looked glued to the forehead. I don't get these little hats that come out of the forehead. Seems completely bizarre, lol.

Amerasu
05-17-2011, 09:36 AM

I forgot to mention this initially - feel free to send in your cards for entry into ArtTrader's Summer HATs contest. Silly me, it's why I started this swap in the first place! Then I forgot to tell you all about it, lol.

Summer Hats Contest: http://www.arttradermag.com/node/282
Closes June 15th.

Jennie
05-18-2011, 02:02 PM

Amerasu
05-19-2011, 09:49 PM

I think I am thinking about these cards too much... I'm having a hard time!!! O.O;;;;

Amerasu
05-24-2011, 09:18 PM
Dilys, I know!!! I totally agree! I think I could have made about 10 more, easily, lol. Welcome!

tlouey - Hard time with hats?? Make bird nest hats! I know you do good birds :)

Jennie
05-25-2011, 07:58 PM
It was hard to only do one idea but I figured that you would do another hat swap sometime and I'd use my other ideas then

Amerasu
05-25-2011, 09:24 PM
Yes, winter hats, lol! Or maybe even Fall hats - I have some ideas already :)

Tlouey
05-26-2011, 09:50 AM
alright... I guess we better be mailing pretty soon since it is almost *gasp* June!

Amerasu
05-27-2011, 09:17 AM
I have warm summer hats here from: akmommaof2, PAMI, Kavka, esew123, evalila

Thrilled with the cards you've all sent in so far! Just fantastic artwork going on with some seriously cool ideas! :)

I'll be doing iTraders and thank yous all at once when I swap out the cards. Just so you know! I'll colour the names of those whose cards have arrived.

Remember to join the contest (http://atcsforall.com/forum/showpost.php?p=994132&postcount=63) too! These cards need to be shown off :)

HotMamaRama
05-27-2011, 09:46 AM
I'd love to join the contest, but I just realized that the only pics I have of mine are from a scan of the whole batch of cards. My bad. :unsure:

I kinda had a hard time getting going too, but finally got in the groove.

Summer hats ok....I think of fishing hats...wonder if I could join. Kim miles

HotMamaRama
05-28-2011, 10:00 AM
Fishing hat is a great idea. Being from Alaska and an avid fisherwoman, I can't believe I didn't think of that!!! I sure hope you do one Kim. :)

kim miles
05-30-2011, 07:29 AM
May I join. I'm thinking of doing my fishing hat....complete with pins. Kinda like a self portrait. Kim miles

Amerasu
05-30-2011, 09:48 AM
Oh yaya! Awesome hats tlouey and debs! :)

Amerasu

Welcome Husum! Glad you're joining us! ATC trading is lots of good fun :)

Amerasu
06-03-2011, 08:43 AM
UPDATE: It looks like Canada Post union is on strike (I'm in Canada). They've shut down their website it seems and it's likely the mail boxes here will be sealed. Hopefully, this won't last more than a few days but hold off mailing to me until they reach an agreement or the government sends them back to work. I understand they're doing rolling strikes in different cities but I'm hopeful this won't last too long! A few days maybe, a week. Shouldn't be too long!

I'll keep you updated! :)


Just thought I'd point out that mail is still being delivered so far so no one should worry. My city isn't affected yet so we're still good it appears.

debs913
06-03-2011, 09:52 AM
Oh my. Please be sure to let us know when our cards get there <anxiety, anxiety> :)

ceejay
06-03-2011, 11:53 AM
I'm lurking ... this looks like a real fun swap .... have to see if I can find some "free" time ... is there really such a thing??? LOL

Jennie
06-03-2011, 11:58 AM
Well Amerasu, at least it happened early in the swap. It Does put a kink in getting your bills on time.

lazyshadows
06-03-2011, 12:30 PM
At least i know that my envelope didn't get lost as i was getting a bit worried!I am sure it will all be sorted out soon:)

Amerasu
06-03-2011, 06:38 PM
Well Amerasu, at least it happened early in the swap. It Does put a kink in getting your bills on time.


Yes, and hopefully it won't last long! I had mail today and don't see my cityt mentioned for the rolling strikes yet. :)

We don't even get much in the mail here anymore - just art and junk mail! Most people I know use e-bills and get bank statements online anyway. I think if it weren't for art cards, my trips to the mail box would be about once every two weeks, lol.

Amerasu
06-03-2011, 06:38 PM
I'm lurking ... this looks like a real fun swap .... have to see if I can find some "free" time ... is there really such a thing??? LOL

No!! I wish there were such a thing - or more of it! ;)

Hope you can join us.

Yay Mary! Hats are fun :)

Cards received last week: maineatc, lazyshadows, loubie, jennie

lazyshadows
06-07-2011, 12:22 PM
Oh great news!;)

Amerasu
06-08-2011, 10:35 AM
Yes, good news indeed! So far, so good, postal strike and all. Nothing has come in this week yet so will just update at the end of the week or on the weekend with a list of new cards received.

Remember, enter the contest - if you're interested! :)

I SENT MY CARDS A WEEK AFTER SAYING I WOULD.... because I am super stupid! SORRY! But they were sent early this week, so, maybe they'll get there Monday or Tuesday... hah.. crazier things have happened...

;)

Amerasu
06-09-2011, 02:45 PM
No worries, lots of time anyway... well, maybe not between Alberta and Ontario with this stupid strike, lol! Be interesting to see how long they take. :)

Amerasu
06-10-2011, 03:01 PM
I'm away for a couple of days and will update after the weekend. I haven't had any cards this week - so far. Still have to check today's mail and will let you know what's arrived on Monday.

Have a good weekend. Create some cool hats! :)

debs913
06-10-2011, 05:30 PM
Okay, anyone want to go kick some Canadian postal butt with me?? :rolleyes:

Amerasu

Okay, anyone want to go kick some Canadian postal butt with me?? :rolleyes:


Geez, count me in! lol :)

I'll check the box today. We're now only getting mail Monday, Wed and Fri. Ugh.

Deblit
06-13-2011, 12:44 PM
I'm going to have to bow out of this one. With the strike there and with real life here I don't think I could get cards to you on time.

rkolig
06-14-2011, 08:04 AM
So far, the Canadian postal strike hasn't affected me. *knocks on wood*

Amerasu
06-15-2011, 08:29 AM
You spoke too soon, Mary! They've now locked out all of the workers across Canada so that's it. No more mail until they negotiate a deal or they're legislated back to work. UGH.

Interim Instructions! Go ahead and keep making your cards. Just hold them til the mail is back in Canada again. Shouldn't be too long and we're still a month away from the due date. I'll post news as soon as anything changes.

kim miles
06-16-2011, 04:04 PM
I am ready to send my cards for this summer hat theme. Mine are called mr and mrs. Sunshine. I used gel pens and marker cus I could travel with these items without much fuss. May I please have the address. Thanks. Kim miles middlebasscherry@yahoo.com

Amerasu
06-16-2011, 04:06 PM
Kim, see post above! I'll send everyone a PM as soon as the postal strike is over with my address and the all-clear for mailing. :)

Amerasu
06-20-2011, 09:07 AM
UPDATE: Canada Post is still on strike but they are being legislated back to work this week so I think it's fine to send cards now. They may take a bit longer to reach me so no one worry, they will eventually arrive!

Juanita Rojas
06-23-2011, 03:29 PM
Here are my hats - it was such fun making them, great swap, Amerasu!

debs913
06-23-2011, 03:34 PM
Bee-yotiful hats, Juanita! Love them.

Amerasu
06-24-2011, 08:12 AM
WOW!!! LOVING the cards I'm seeing here! Absolutely fun and creative and nicely done too! Can't wait to see them in person!

Update: Yes, some post offices are still accepting mail for Canada and some aren't so it will depend on your post office whether you can mail them or not. It's going to be over very soon since the government is now involved and wants it to be over. So if you've sent, sure they might be a bit delayed but they will get here. I expect they will be working again by early next week. That's what everyone is saying at least. *fngers crossed*

:)

Amerasu
06-24-2011, 08:13 AM
Dilys, that ice hat is awesome, lol. Made me giggle :)

Amerasu
06-27-2011, 09:38 PM
UPDATE - Mail strike is over and the post office opens up tomorrow! Yay, mail delivery tomorrow. I'll let you know what arrives. I do know that there will be delays due to pile ups and that they're giving preference to mail that's been sitting in the system while the strike was happening.

Finally!

PM me if you need my address.

debs913
06-28-2011, 09:51 AM
I mailed my cards from OHio on 5/31. You probably will have an inch of dust on them by the time they get to your house.

Amerasu
06-29-2011, 08:32 AM
Ha! Probably! :)

We were supposed to get mail delivery starting yesterday but I didn't get a thing! I suppose they were too busy sorting so hopefully a big huge pile will be in my box today. Fingers crossed.

Silly post office, lol! The strike has been over since Tuesday but I guess the news is slow to travel! I'm sure they'll take them next week. It's perfectly fine to mail now. All is well.

:)

Raingirl, FANTASTICO! Love the hats! And yours too Monica, nice and big and colourful. The bird cage one is awesome, lol :)

I am sorry but I have to withdraw from this swap. No inspiration yet and I am running out of time.

No kidding, that's just crazy. I'm waiting on tons of backlogged cards between here and iATCs. I hope they all arrive safely.

We're pretty close so shouldn't take too long. I certainly don't mind using all of the 2 week grace period either. I think we might need it after that strike! I'm still waiting on a lot of mail I know was sent out before they closed up for the month.

Cards have arrived from Dilys and Husum (safely, finally!). Just a few more days to go and a few cards left to receive. :)

Amerasu

Ok, I have cards from Monica, Raingirl, Juanita Rojas and Angelmusz. Just waiting to hear from one more person and I'll know whether to wait or send these out. Almost there! Still two more in the mail.

Getting excited that we are so close to the due date!
Does it look like you'll have them all in on time with the delay of the postal system and all?

Amerasu
07-14-2011, 10:50 AM
Yep, all should be in within a week of the due date so I'll be using a bit of the grace period but not all of it. We're looking good!

Hi friend. Thanks for being so patient....know the due date was the 15th. Know I sent them weeks ago. Sorry ..please let me know if you do get them. Maybe we can trade them again......kim

Amerasu

No worries, Kim! I'm sure they will be here soon and we have time to wait. :)
Canada Post probably still has a bit of a backlog. I'm waiting on another set too.

Amerasu
