Swap Due: January 30, 2012
Sign Up Date: Immediately
Withdrawal Date: January 10, 2012
Number of cards: 3/3
Number of participants: 20
Medium: Hand drawn (ink, markers, color pencils, pastels, acrylic, water color, chalk, graphite, charcoal) Accents of metallic ink, glitter glue, and other sparkly additions indicative of the icy cold crystals would be wonderful. Not too chunky though, it may not fare well in the transit.

Guidelines:
- all cards are the standard size (2.5"X3.5")
- all cards are sturdy based (like card stock)
- all cards should have the artist's name, user name, the name of the trade, and the country where the artist resides on the back of each card.
- Please submit your best work and I will do my best to swap the same equivalence.
- Hosts cards are really, really nice, but optional.

Mailing Instructions:
- International participants please send a SASE or a concealed dollar for your returns.
- U.S. participants please send a SASE for your returns as well.
- PM me when you are ready for my address.



The colder months are here.
I reside in Michigan with the Great Lakes wind snapping around every corner. If waiting for public transportation, icicles would have already formed around the mouth and eyebrows of those who were determined to wait among the elements. The below weather season is welcomed by the select few: Snow Queens and Ice Princesses They are use to it.

The color palette is conducive to this weather. The Icy blues,chilling silverand the numbing lavenders await you (though not required).

Thank you Kavka. I will add you to the list. Thanks for joining in! :)

I'm thinking of joining! But before I do, just to clarify re: postage for international people (like me), do you mean we should send a SASE + $1 (US) bill? I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "$1.00 US equivalence" for postage.

Sesshanach, I will try to edit the intro to the swap to make it more clear. Thank you. :)

Sesshanach

OK, I think I can join - as long as I can provide $1 bill rather than having to come up with actual US postage. So the idea will be to send a self-addressed (but not stamped) envelope, with a concealed $1 to cover postage - correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't know how difficult, if at all, for international users to get a dollar bill or the postage equivalent to 1.00. Which ever is easier and getting the best results is what I was trying to convey. Thank you again. :)

I'm finished my cards - fittingly, I was in the middle of my last session on them yesterday evening when an ice storm came through and took out the power! I ended up finishing them by candlelight and flashlight.

Here they are. They will be in the mail once I get the address. Thanks!

lenoralb
01-19-2012, 02:51 AM
Oooooh Jennifer...so nice. Who will be getting what? I'm trying to stir up some suspense - lol. Sesshanach did the same thing as I and went along with the figurative concept rather then the literal. Such artists... so much talent. :)
