Some time ago we explored the secret lives of nuns. The swap was so much fun I want to do it again! The Secret Lives of Nuns is a swap where you can depict whatever you think nuns are secretly doing or hiding under that habit. Maybe you think nuns secretly hide cookies under the robes or maybe they secretly make prank phone calls or really love donuts. the sky's pretty much the limit (but please remember, we are not trying to offend anyone. It's not our objective to upset anyone or offend their religion - just to have some fun with the loveable nuns!

You may use any media for this swap. I will do my best to swap quality for quality.

- All cards should be sent in some sort of protective sleeve or envelope.
- All cards must be original, and each card must be different. Please do not make copies or submit prints.
- Show off your talents. Send cards that took time and care and are your best work.
- Please don’t use hard, bulky embellishments that can upset postal machines.
- No stickers, please.
- HAVE FUN!

Russell
06-17-2011, 06:27 PM
SO MUCH PRESSURE! First off, I completely expect this swap to offend some people. I just don't want anyone to make cards to intentionally offend anyone or any particular religion. That being said, I do want eveyone to have loads of FUN with this. The fist Secret Lives of Nuns swap (check it out here for some inspiration http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15560) brought out some suprising sides of nuns. Every time I received cards I would get a good chuckle out of the fun nuns were secretly having. We had nuns doing everything from working the stripper poles to driving racecars to hiding the fact that they were actually robots. I know I really didn't define "offend" but I'm hoping you won't notice and think I answered the question. Did it work?

Russell
06-17-2011, 06:28 PM
Yay! more players. Welcome to joyflower, Joss, debs913, SunTrade and jymi3!

did someone say banned atc?:D awesome! Russell Ive finished a few...1 maybe a bit :unsure: but you did say there were stripper nuns in the last round...:jiggy:

Hey there, katelnorth! Good to see you again!

Russell
06-21-2011, 07:51 AM
Welcome katelnorth!

Russell
06-21-2011, 07:56 AM
did someone say banned atc?

The card was not so much banned as bannished. It was sent to the adult gallery. Saddest part is the card was removed by the artist who made it and it really is a fantastic card. And, it was not even moved to the adult gallery because of the card's content but rather because of the card's title. Makes you wish you had been a part of the original swap now so you would have had a chance to see it huh! Now the only way to see it (other than come to my house) is to attend one of the ATC workshops I do where I place it prominently in the display for all to see.

oddbreed
06-21-2011, 09:12 AM
Russell~i cant wait to see the "removed" nun card~

LMAO! The last time I sported a bikini, I was 16, Miss Birthday Girl! I do love corn, though. :D

TF Balding

HotMamaRama

Seriously!!!!! Creamed corn cage fighting in bikini's with nuns???????
Yeah, I'm down with that!!!! :D
They don't call me "Big Mama" around here for nothing! ;)

debs913 - In the words of my favorite ol' bad boy, "“You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk?” :skeptical:

Russell
06-22-2011, 01:23 PM
I think this whole cage fight thing (corn involved or not) could add an entirely new deminsion to swapping.

I think this whole cage fight thing (corn involved or not) could add an entirely new dimension to swapping.

Okay, I have been threatening to cage fight people for almost two years now. Either the corn makes it more exciting, or no one takes me seriously as a physical threat.

I have to admit, jello wrestling doesn't appeal - too sticky in all the wrong places... ew! But I do like the idea of wrestling nuns...

Wow, it's like we all took a vow of silence or something.

SeattleMeg's cards quietly arrived at my mailbox over the weekend, and that's not easy to do with a can-can nun in the group!

AnnD
06-27-2011, 10:06 AM
Russell, I went to Gilly's in Plainfield yesterday, where I assume you have been 12 times because I can't EVER seem to find a place you don't already know about. At any rate, I saw not only a box full of miniature nun dolls that I totally wanted, but also a "Three Nuns Tobacco" tin with the slogan, None better! Wha?!

debs913

deb, that is FRIGGIN' HILARIOUS! Our host looks killer in a habit!

Russell, I took you to Prizm! And Southport! Hush with that "never take you anywhere" nonsense. I will take you to Gilly's whenever you want, though. It's just an antique mall, but they have some fun things.

nanner
06-28-2011, 12:40 PM
Thanks, loves. I have no idea what Sister Simmons has to do with a "ham", but I just wanted something funny for that signature tongue to lick. And it works in some backward/alternate-universe kind of way. :D

Russell

It certainly works here.

HotMamaRama

Sister Mary Flower Child...

Here are mine, they will be flying off to you soon. Great idea to have part II.

75979 Sister Chastity: 'I should've danced all night!'

75980 Sister Speakeasy: 'I love the chat rooms!'

75981 Sister Mary was partial to lamb stew! (Mary had a little lamb duh!)

75982 Sister Whine-oh: 'Hey where's mine?', whine, whine, whine- OH!

Sorry I've been away from the thread for a while. I've been busy building a cage in my backyard. Now to find enough corn for some fightin'. I did have the pleasure of seeing our very own AnnD live and in person on thursday evening. Sadly, it was very brief as I was working and she came into the store for some supplies, but even a brief Annd encounter can be a day brightener.

And, a very warm welcome to sophierock, Subconcious ink and rogalaca. Hope you are ready for the madness ladies (and start brushing up on your fightin' skills for the corn cage match).

MAybe if there's a part 3...

LOL. Like Madonna, I went to catholic school my whole life.... I have a love hate relationship with nuns. Some of them where so wonderful, and some were little tyrants.

It's true, I will be in the actual presence of the infamous AnnD tomorrow (unless she stands me up). However, I truly hope there is no leg peeing involved.

Nanner, I'll pick a great Ann nun for you! Even if I have to crack the whip on her like child labor to get her to make one that is Nanner worthy!

Glad the nuns are approved. Russell, I knew there had to be True Blood fans here that might appreciate Sookie, cool that one of them is YOU.

And we hate for you to be missing out. There is probably going to have to be a secret lives III at some point.

After begging for admission to the convent, I must withdraw. I'm leaving for my mom's Friday and don't have much art time between now and then. :(

I will watch for a part III.

Okay Peeps, we are less than a week away from our deadline. I know there are some nuns on the way. I hope everyone is doing well on thier cards and getting excited for the swapping (or cage fighting whichever the case may be).

Today's the deadline folks. I know there are still a few sets of nuns that are on thier way (sometimes the post office doesn't work as quickly as we all hope) and since I am crazy busy right now (a co-worker quit suddenly and I have been kinda swamped) I'll be trading out in a few days. I do want to take a moment to thank everyone who participated and/or lurked and commented. This swap was fun and has been a bright spot in my days these past weeks so THANKS!

That's my Cricket. She's my bestest friend in the world and I adore her. She's part lab and part German Short Haired Pointer and I'm sure she has some other breeds mingled in there as well. We like to refer to her as purebred cutie. I went to our local animal care and control and she claimed me at a time when I really needed her and since then she has been there at all those times I really needed someone. She's the one constant in my life.
