Vintage Bathing Beauties Swap

This is a theme that I just love so come join me and celebrate those vintage bathing beauties. Use collage, stamping, fabric etc to create your ATCs and share your passion with the rest of us.

• This is a 3 for 3 swap due to me by the 1st June 2008 - remember that I am in Australia (post from the US can take 2 weeks).
• Late arrivals will be returned to their creators...
• If you need to withdraw at any time, not a problem but please let me know
• Australian players please include a Stamped SAE.
• International players please include an addressed label and I will cover your postage - an extra ATC is welcome to help cover the cost but by no means essential. If you would like to include the same postage that it cost to send your cards so that I can use that in my swaps that would be lovely. Please write your user name and swap title on your envelope to me.
• Please also remember to put your user name on the back of all your cards
• PLEASE no heavy or bulky embellishments
• Please tape your envies closed so that we don't lose any cards
• Please PM me for my address when you are ready to send your cards
• All cards must fit in a plastic ATC sleeve
• Make sure your usersname is on the back of all your cards

I think that’s all – If you have any questions or I have forgotten something please PM me or post to the thread.

Most of all – Have Fun!!!!!!!

VBR
04-01-2008, 10:45 PM
Jonquil!!

I have a question. Does the vintage lady involved have to be from the early 20th century or can it be a little more recent (like the 1950's or so)?

jonquil
04-02-2008, 02:58 AM
I think that the 50s count as vintage - i googled vintage once and it covered the 1950s and way back

When I mailed these cards last week my little post office was closed for lunch to I went to another post office down the road. The young man at the counter weighed it and put on the stamps. Today it came back to me because it had INSUFFICIENT POSTAGE. :sad:I went back to him and complained thinking I would add more stamps (the ones on it had been canceled) but realized that it would never get to Australia in time. When I told him to forget it, it was too late he said in a snotty voice "Thank's for coming in to rub my nose in it" and he LAUGHED.:mad:I was so angry by then that I was speechless and just left. He might not be laughing when he finds out that the postmaster of that office is a friend of mine.

Anyway- I guess I am out of this swap. If anyone has an old, leftover card you want to trade for mine, PM me.

jonquil
05-30-2008, 06:21 PM
That is such a shame - sometimes the post offices thinkk they are gods - but our options for sending are limited. In Autralia we have one option - My local post office is fabulous so I am lucky.

Report him! How rude. The PO I go to is a small branch, but the ladies are the best, are quick and helpful. And.......when I mail from there my mail gets to it's destination a whole lot quicker. Can't figure it out since it all leaves at the same time.

I think that is all the cards in - haven't heard back from the two players whose cards are not here - so that means I will be swapping out tomorrow and will get them in the post on Thursday.:jiggy: Would do them tonight but Year 9 reports await:eek:

jonquil
06-08-2008, 07:10 AM
The returns have gone postal - so keep an eye on your mail boxes in a week or so for our OS players and a bit sooner for our Aussie participants. There was a fabulous array of cards so there should be something to please everyone. DOn't forget to post to the thread when they arrive at their destinations so I know they hve gotten there safe and sound.
