Taurus, Gemini, Cancer Zodiac Swap - Due April 27, 2012
Swap Due Date: April 27, 2012
Signup/Withdraw Date: April 27, 2012
Number of Cards: 3 for 3
Number of Participants: Unlimited


RETURNS MAILED 5/02



The Zodiac is recognized in all cultures, across all people. But the Zodiac signs refer to different images, with different names, in different countries and cultures.

Most Americans are familiar with the "Western Zodiac" and many read their daily horoscope in the local paper.
As a new, or an additional, challenge, Zodiac symbols from sources other than the Western Zodiac may provide more research, and more learning, for you, and more variety to your cards. Besides, it is FUN to learn new thing and experiment with new cards. Be creative!!

You may wish to try thinking "outside" the Western Zodiac.
What about a Celtic focus (See attached link), or an Egyptian focus (I have posted Egyptian Zodiac cards in my gallery to help you create), or the Zodiac used in India.

Try experimenting with the Chinese (Eastern) Zodiac, or combine the Western Zodiac with the Eastern Zodiac.
I was looking at some old issues of "Art & Antiques" and I found this advertisement for http://www.eastmeetswestco.com
It combines your Western Zodiac sign (i.e. Pieces, Aquarius, Scorpio, Taurus, etc.) and your Eastern (Chinese) Zodiac sign (dog, pig, rat, etc) into one very cool piece of art. Even if you don't know both of your signs, you can just put in your birth date and it will show you what you are. I just thought this combination and the art was very cool.


* This is a 3 for 3 card trade. Make 3 cards, one each of above listed zodiac signs, receive 3 cards back, one each of the above listed zodiac signs.

* All mediums and styles are welcome. All I ask is that you send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

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

* If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, 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


* If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/4 inches, or a large mailing label with your address and loose stamps. Postage rates are increasing in January, so please use either a forever stamp or 45 cents on your return envelope. Please put your Username and Swap Name on your mailing envelope, return envelope if used, and on all cards. And please write clearly on everything!

* International participants, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address. Please put your username and Swap Name on the back of your mailing envelope, return envelope if sent, and on all cards. And please write clearly on everything!

* I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. When I use the 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area and be nice and thin and only pay for the normal postage.

* Cards are due to me by April 27, 2012. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. itrader ratings will be given when I receive your cards. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

* Remember: We all want to be able to know who to give rep points back to. So, do not forget to put your username and swap name on the back of each card!

* An extra ATC in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!
I am always delighted with any hostie card, for those artists who have the time to create and include one.
For those folks who have specifically asked if I have a hostie card wish, please know that I am a certifiable Mermaid Maniac, so if you are so inclined, please feel free to send in a Mermaid-type hostie card. This might be best suited to twin mermaids in the sign of Gemini, but let your Muse be your guide.

* Thanks for considering this swap! If you already have my address, it has not changed.
If you are new, or have not been in one of my swaps for a while, I will PM you my address when you sign up!

* Above all ~Have fun!!!

Welcome pixiecorpse.
Yes, you are the first to sign up.

If you are interested, there is an earlier swap covering 3 earlier signs, Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries, that you may wish to join, if you want a more complete set of Zodiacal Signs.
That swap ends in 2 weeks, so if interested, you need to get your cards created and mailed.

Thank you also for the extra Cancer hostie card.
LOVE your interpretation, and the colors are fabulous.

By the way,where did you do your research for the Zodiac symbols?
The names of the sun signs appear to be names of the months on the Mayan calendar, but beyond that information, I know very little.

Woo! That was fast although pochadiva got there in 2 days lol I bet they don't come back as fast!

The cancer is very cool with the "net" and the embellishments.

LOVE the gemini card.

I had to look at it several times to figure out there was a double face image.

Thank you for the extra postage.

Ok I went with Mayan Astrological Signs. the Mayans have 19 signs that represent the movement of the days through the year. Not perfect since there is no real data on their culture etc. But these are close to our astrological signs.. I find them interesting and will put a little note in each about what they mean. Hope you all enjoy them

Returns went into the mail this morning.
Hopefully US participants will start receiving their cards by the end of the week.
Unfortunately, International people have to wait a bit longer, although there does seem to be some faster mail deliveries to England.

Please remember to give itrades to your host (me) and You Rock! points to those folks whose cards you receive.

Thanks for participating.

Do you know (approximately) how many ATCs you have accumulated?
Have you filled your first binder yet?

You are definitely addicted to ATCs.:wacko:

At last count I was up to 200, and I only had 50 before I started here 4 months ago :D and I only counted them a few weeks ago so maybe another 15 on top of that.
I really am!
Yep first binders full to bursting! My second one should be finished and on its way soon I traded for extra sleeves too just to make sure I have enough room :D and room for categorisation! Ooh I love doing that :D I can't wait for hubby to say yes to the dvd shelves so I can alphabatize those too :D

It is good to see that more returns are finding their new homes.
Although the mail seems to be reaching its destinations much more slowly this month.

Only Claudzie has not received her cards, and I am sure they will arrive shortly, so I am closing down this swap.

Thanks again to one and all for participating.
