03-26-2008, 10:58 AM
Swap Due Date - May 31
Signup/withdraw date - May 1
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants --24 (max. 10 international)

The theme for this swap is CUPCAKES & CROWNS. The cards you create should include either cupcakes or a crown with your Whimsey Girl (or Guy)...or you can incorporate both as I've done below!

What's a Whimsey Girl? Well, I think Altermyworld invented the term -- she originated this swap theme and has been generous in letting me continue on with it. Whimseys are fantastic hand drawn fantasies that spring from our imagination. Many of us have found a special enjoyment in creating these cards and characters. The Whimseys can be realistic or surrealistic -- but there should be a touch of joy and fun in your cards.

DUE in my hands by MAY 31, 2008
3 for 3 - send three get three back
An extra card is not necessary but always appreciated.
***I will message you with my mailing address when you sign up for the swap.

POSTAGE REQUIREMENTS
All participants should send a self addressed envelope that includes their screen name as well as their real name. Please mark the back of your envelope with a small notation "Whimsey Swap".

**US participants -- add 59 cents postage to your SASE.
**International participants -- I will cover postage back to you.

EMBELLISHMENTS & EXTRA HEAVY CARDS
This results in higher postage to send returns. US players -- if you choose to use embellishments please include 2 extra, loose US stamps (42 cents each) for each embellished card that you send. International swappers please keep this in mind and plan accordingly!

Heymaggie - Your cupcake queens are safely here! Thanks for the extra -- they are so hard to choose from!

Thank you. Did you think they turned out more creepy than whimsical? It was kinda up in the air for me.

coffeelatte
04-11-2008, 11:38 AM
Well, ya know, I'm definitely one for the creepier side of things...they were not scary or morbid -- sort of whimsical like Tim Burton-style maybe? I like 'em!

Miss - I'll let you know when they arrive. Thanks for swapping again!

Purplecat - your envie was split part way along the side, but I think everything was still inside. Thank you for the extra images you sent along!

PurpleRealm I am SOOOO happy that you are enjoying the process of making these. That purple cupcake is obviously mezmerizing that Whimsey girl -- I can't wait to see her beautiful eyes up close!

Jitterbug
04-16-2008, 08:35 PM
Coffeelatte, My girls were sent off to you today. I used a 'forever' stamp on the return envie since stamp prices are going up in May.
Have loved this swap - thanks everyone who has shared their work...I enjoy previews - fantastic work!:jiggy:

coffeelatte
04-17-2008, 10:20 AM
Thanks for the heads-up, Jitterbug!

I've worked on some of my cards this week, and hope to scan copies when I am back home this weekend. I ended up with one very weird one (a Whimsey eating Devils Food cupcakes...) -- it probably won't go for this swap, but it's funny how sometimes the drawings take us a totally different direction than when we begin the process...

coffeelatte
04-21-2008, 03:29 PM

Juliejewl - Congratulations! Did you see one of your Whimsey girls is on the front page of the site?

Thanks! I almost didn't even notice it, to be honest. LOL! Then all of a sudden I really looked at the front page and was like "Wait just a minute....that looks really familiar..." Very exciting.

coffeelatte
04-22-2008, 08:47 AM

Hey, everyone....my mom fell and broke her knee. This happened while she was on vacation in Hawaii. She's being flown back home to California this evening, and we will know more about her knee surgery on Monday. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I might have to travel in the next few days. My husband and son know to set aside any incoming envelopes while I am gone...but if I don't respond to emails for a few days, I will catch up with you all when things settle down.

I will have email access at her house, if I have to go down there. My sister and I are trying to figure out what to do as far as home care...

coffeelatte
05-10-2008, 11:24 AM
Thanks, Ang...you are very generous to offer. I think things are pretty well under control with the swap at this point, but I will keep you posted.

My sister lives in the same town as my mom, but I know it is really hard to have to take time off from work wherever you live. I just feel horrible that my mother's lovely vacation ended so abruptly, and she is in her mid-70s so it's a little worrisome about surgery and recovery. She's a HUGE hiker, and this is really going to ruin her summer season for that activity...

altermyworld
05-10-2008, 11:29 AM
Sounds like me and my sister, my sister lives very near i live in another country 10 hrs away, yesterday my mom was in a car accident everyone is fine but its still that not being there having to arrange getting there if need be, the worry. Your poor mom on vacation in beautiful Hawaii and to fall break her knee oh thats just awful.
Ang

poppiesinjuly
05-11-2008, 01:39 PM
Wow, sorry about your mom. I hope she's feeling better soon.

I finished my cards this weekend and will scan them and get them in the mail by tomorrow. :)

coffeelatte
05-12-2008, 10:26 AM
Thanks for your kind thoughts...

Sorry to hear about your mom, Ang! I am so glad she is alright...I talked with my mom yesterday and she is mainly irritated that she knew someone on the plane flying back home. I guess she hit her chin pretty hard when she fell, and her face and hands are all bandaged up. She was embarrassed...but, geez...at least she was able to fly home!

Poppiesinjuly - I'll keep my eyes open for them!

coffeelatte
05-13-2008, 11:31 AM
My mother won't be able to have her knee surgery for a week or so, and that means I will be here in town for a week or so...more info as I get my trip together...

SeaSong - Your lovely Whimseys arrived safe and sound! Thanks for the extra!

nowzem
05-13-2008, 12:44 PM
I'm sorry about your mom! Good that she was only worried about seeing someone she knew on the plane and not worse ;) I'll keep your and yours in my thoughts!!! :wubclub:

Poppiesinjuly - Your cards arrived! Thanks for the fun extras!

Sally Ann - Your cards arrived. I'll have to work up a good collage swap-out to send along with your returns. And thank you for the little stamped pattern - very cute!

Purple Realm - As always, beautiful cards have arrived. My favorites are the purple and teal blue! Your envelope had a big "ID RECORDED" sticker on it... they make you register outgoing mail to international sites?

coffeelatte
05-20-2008, 11:28 PM
Blueridgegirl, Jzhanna, Crafty, Quadgirl and Joyflower - I show your cards are all still in your hands, is that right? I will be away from home beginning Thursday and back on the 27th. We are just under 2 weeks from the date this swap ends, so please keep me posted on your progress!

Wooohoo - glad they arrived safe and sound. :D
It for the customs declaration - anything that is not a letter or a card has to have a customs dec on it - when the PO processes the customs dec they record your ID (drivers licence) details and SLAP that HUGE sticker on it! LOL

That way if Im being naughty and sending something illegal, they can track me down!!!!

coffeelatte
06-03-2008, 08:31 PM
Crafty - Your BEAUTIFUL cards arrived! I forgot to mention that earlier.

Joyflower - Your wonderful whimseys also arrived!

I did message Blueridgegirl, Jzhanna & Quadgirl with no responses yet. I have our returns just about packed up and plan on mailing out on Friday with or without their cards.

Mom's surgery was finally done yesterday -- all is well, she's just got a long recovery ahead. I appreciate all the good thoughts you have sent our way the past few weeks.

I am going to take a breather on hosting the Whimsey Girls for a while. Please -- if anyone else wants to step up to take them on, I'd still love to join in and trade (just not coordinate right now!)

Thanks again to all of you for swapping in this one. Here's a preview of what I sent out...everyone got a Whimsey from me, and I hope you'll enjoy them in your collection!

Yep, you're all getting a card. I did that last time, too...it's fun to do -- to see how many variations on a theme you can come up with!

I didn't realize that. I love your cards but also like getting different cards from different artists.

Everyone is getting three cards from other artists, but I also sent one to each player. I think it was Pat Stevens who got me started doing that...I always liked that as a hosting "touch"...

Glad they are arriving at the other end! I love the Whimseys so much, and it's always a pleasure to have extras to swap.

Ang - You also deserve a big thanks in that you created the initial concept of Whimsey Girls.

Received my awesome cards this weekend! Thank you to Cindy for hosting and card (what a great surprise!), paperfairys, Sea Song, and WOClovers!

Cindy- should you get two ITs for this swap? One for hosting and one for the beautiful card you sent? I think that should be right, but am not sure...

Just a note that I forwarded a swap gallery set-up for this one to the Admin, so hopefully there will be an entry on that list and you can see more of the awesome cards that were submitted.

If I promised anyone I'd scan and send them pics of their cards, I do have copies of all the submissions. Contact me directly on this.

And, I am going to close this thread as it looks like most of the envies have reached the final destinations. Thanks again for swapping!
