View Full Version : Why is this card still in my gallery swap - Due July 22nd

Why is this card still in my gallery swap...

I love the name I chose because as I have started receiving ATC from players I feel like they are really looking at their available cards and choosing ones that they really do wonder why they are still in their gallery. Thank you players!

Due date: July 22, 2011
Sign-up: by July 17, 2011
Withdraw: by July 17, 2011

Number of players: 40

This idea was borrowed - with her blessings - from xstitcher who hosted Been in my gallery too long swaps - I know there are a lot of players out there with lots of cards in their galleries so if you'd like to play in this absolutely, positively random swap please sign up. If you played in the other swaps please note the guidelines for my swap are a little different and are listed below.

Guidelines:


3/3 or 6/6
Cards must be 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and in plastic sleeves.
On the back of your cards please include both your user name and real name and where you live.
Please only send cards you would be truly happy to receive in a trade - poorly made cards will NOT be traded - this swap is not for "oops that didn't come out very good" cards but for those little gems that have somehow got buried in your gallery and are not being appreciated. ATCs with embellishments are welcome as long as you send a little extra postage.


****SPECIAL NOTE - With an unthemed swap please remember to keep it clean - I want everyone to be comfortable with what they receive so please no off color subjects that wouldn't be good for everyone.

Mailing:

Please make sure to package your cards securely and confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.

If you are new to swapping or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping here is a great link.

http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

U.S. Players: Along with your cards please send a label with your name and address and 64 cents of loose postage. Please DO NOT send an envelope - I will provide them.

International Players: Along with your cards please send a label with your name and address - I will cover ALL international players postage.

Itrader/Rep. Points: I will leave Itrader comments for all players when I mail out your cards - in return please leave me an Itrader when you receive your swapped cards. A blurp on the forum thread that your cards arrived is always nice and please remember to leave rep points for the artists you received cards from.
Here is a link to the easiest way I have found to find the players and leave the rep points everyone loves.

Girl - if all your cards look like the ones you do have in your gallery what you send will be just fine - perfect actually - can't wait to see some in person. Welcome to the swap!

ICraft
06-12-2011, 04:46 AM
Oh happy me - the welcome mat is out for Evalila, Freedom119, butterflygirl24, SunTrade, jensaz, Mariak, SeattleMeg, jaeseals, CherylS and maggiebloom!!!

Wow it practically looks like old home week - just a couple of players who are new to me. You know what that means don't you? Yep - I know what kind of work most of you are capable of so don't even think you might be able to pull a fast one over on me and send in any of those cards that "should be kicked under the couch". haha :twitcy: Not sure who - but a funny player from a past swap told me that is what she thought should be done with those little accidental disaster ATCs we sometimes make but for some reason we don't realize how terrible they are until we look back through them after a few days or sometimes weeks. Then it's like - "Whoa - what was I thinking? hee-hee Thank goodness we usually notice before we send them in for a swap or post them in our gallery.

SeattleMeg
06-12-2011, 05:41 PM
LOL! The ones I've set aside I really liked making, but I think not everyone likes those color combos or styles. So, what did she think we should do with the disaster ones? I just use them as bookmarks.

Meg

One time a player told me that if she makes a card that doesn't turn out right she puts them in a box and sometimes uses them as a background to a new creation. I told her yep I store my goofs in a box too - it's called the trash can. haha :twitcy: I know myself - if I don't like it when I make it I probably won't like it randomly in the future either.:unsure: Bookmarks - hmmm....that's an idea.

Oh I almost forgot to welcome - Maineatc and LadyDoor - thanks so much for joining!!!

More ATC gems have arrived from LadyDoor, Gigglefairy, Minnkel, Wil Opio Oguta and Oddbreed. There are several players in the swap I have never traded with and with all these great cards maybe the subtitle of the swap should be "and why haven't traded before?" Thanks everyone for sending such nice cards I REALLY appreciate you choosing such wonderful cards!!!!!

P.S. Tiffany186 - I really like the premade labels you use on the outside of the envelope you send with the name of the swap hand written on it and then your Artist name, real name and location typed on it. Great for helping hosts stay organized!:notworthy:

07-27-2011, 01:45 AM
Hooray! Everyone's swap returns made it in the mail today - my post office is much quieter on Tuesdays so it worked out best for everyone. I also wanted to share how crazy doing a "random" swap is. I figured it would be so easy to put all the cards in a bowl, pick them out one by one and put them in each person's envelope. You would not believe how many times I got 2, even 3 from the same artist or a card that belonged to the artist whose envelope I was working on. Thank goodness I did not seal the envelopes until all the trades were done because a couple of times I had to do a remix and redraw cards from the pile - so crazy. I guess it is just like they say - there really is nothing that is truly random. I hope that everyone got 3 or 6 different artists' ATCs and no one got any of their own cards back - eek! I tried to make sure to check through them all twice but you never know what might get overlooked.:unsure:

Dena,

My family only draws 14 names at Christmas, and that is a bit wild trying keep anyone from getting their own name, or who they had the year before. I can only imagine how much effort and work it was to keep all the cards straight for so many players. Thank you!!

ICraft
07-28-2011, 01:34 AM
Yes Shoe it was actually kind of amusing - I just assumed random would be less work but instead it was just different work. haha Go figure - but as long as everyone gets their return envelope with the right # of ATCs and none of them are their own then I'll be happy. :rolleyes:

Oh drats!!!!! I knew I should have had my hubby double check the cards with me. So sorry about the Cheryl - if you want to trade your card out I'll be glad to switch it with one of mine or another from my batch - please let me know!


Got my cards. Thanks to our host Icraft, Elena, Suntrade,ginevra,judy, tfbalding and myself ( got one of my own cards back).

I got wonderful cards today. Does make me think Why were these cards not taken!

I will be leaving you rocks and trader for our wonderful host. THANK YOU!

I totally agree - I was so pleasantly surprised with all the great cards. I really do think that it's easy for cards to either get buried in our galleries or simply have their beauty overlooked because of a scanned picture that perhaps didn't reveal what a gem they were.

thanks for hosting ICraft ... what a hoot ... 2 of my returns were cards that I almost chose for personal trades, but picked something else instead... what a hoot!
Thanks to:
Elena, Wil Opio Oguta, CherylS, AtlantaShoeGirl, certosinaE, mariak
I'll be leaving the reps later - gotta get to work! :)


Haha - that is hilarious. Yes as I passed my hand over the box of cards I did feel a draw to some cards as I filled your envelope. Maybe I have ATC swap psychic powers! haha So glad there is so much happiness with everyone's returns.

Yay more happy players and so far only one player who got one of their own cards back but I'm still so embarrassed. I've been holding my breath with every posting hoping no one else has the same thing happen. I told you guys this random thing was crazier than I thought. At least when I do a regular swap I look at the cards soooo many times before and during the swap I get to know what cards people made - with the random thing I really only looked at them when they came in and then as I was putting them in the "pot" for picking. (oh yeah excuses, excuses haha - actually I goofed aack!!!)

Lol, "lullabyejewel" is my email addy... i just use my real name as my AFA user name. :)

Oh for a minute I thought I gave TF Balding back one of her own cards but whew I see you were responding to Wil Opio Oguta. I know sometimes it is confusing when players have both their email name and real name since if you haven't traded with the person before it is easy to assume that they go by the more whimsical name on the site. Thanks TF for helping Wil find you though - I'm sure she would be pulling her hair out looking for lullabyejewel.

Yay - glad you had fun svetamk! You were a great player! Glad the plastic sleeves will come in handy for you - I know it is hard when you can't find them where you live.
