Very cool! Allegrae, I've got a set of Halloween starters headed your way, and a set to finish

Thats awesome Allegrae. I love music cards if anyone is starting another :)

I will be gone Friday - Sunday for a "women's outing." It is called becoming an outdoor woman they have it in a lot of states. http://www.uwsp.edu/cnr-ap/bow/Pages/default.aspx This is my first time going. My sister thinks it will be good for my social anxiety and they gave me one of their scholarships this year so I don't have to pay for it. I"m really looking forward to it. I went to Michael's today and got a sketch pad with a JOurnal for $3.99 which is a steal in my opinion. I'm going to draw lines on the bottom half and draw on the top half and capture my weekend in art :) I will still be on here til then :)

My daughter has a plan to fund her next trip to the US by smuggling in Kinder Eggs (not really, but she does intend to bring a few for her friends). Seems such an odd thing to ban them - the toys are inside a huge (in terms of swallowing) plastic capsule inside the egg - I mean, it's about 5cm tall and at least 2cm in diameter and bright yellow - hardly a choking hazard! Whatever :)

It is a bit of overkill isn't it? I read somewhere that it's an obscure application of a rule restricting non food substances in food - the rule being created because of poor factory standards, people finding glass, metal and other things in their food. The rule makes sense but not applied to this.

Mace, have a fun time. If I start another music card I'll keep you in mind.

MACE

Katel make sure she knows its $2500 an egg fine (unreal in my opinion) coming through Canada to the USA and not sure how much if they see in your suitcases

Sarnie, I had a great evening working on your wonderful starter sets. :D
All 4 sets are ready to go to others and they will - tomorrow! :yes:
Now I'm excited to see Allegraes set - yeah! And in the meantime I make starters....
OMG, I'm really on fire. This is so much fun!:wub:

Allegrae
09-18-2014, 03:29 PM
Received 2 sets to finish from Sarnie. These will be fun!

MACE

Got my results. I failed my medical coding boards by 1 question. Retake December.

kentuckydakota
09-18-2014, 06:08 PM
AW shucks! Well, go and enjoy your weekend and forget about it for now. At least since you were only one question away you know your chances are great on the retake.:wubclub:

It is late, but I did mail off an envelope to MACE today. It had a homer in it. and the fire truck set, I think. See it is late cant remember details anymore.

BekaH
09-19-2014, 04:59 PM
Got a cute set to finish from allegrae that was started by caslequeen. Hope it's ok that they've taken on a Halloween appearance Heather :-)

kentuckydakota
09-19-2014, 05:20 PM
I may be wrong but I think CastleQueen asked for no Halloween in her don'ts list. You might want to hold off on that one VR

Elena
09-19-2014, 06:20 PM
You can take me out of the homers next update :)

BekaH
09-19-2014, 06:32 PM
Well, they haven't turned completely Halloween YET. I haven't worked on them yet. I think allegrae added some cute little candy corns and Hershey kisses to them, and I was thinking about adding some Halloween things to go with the candy corns, but I think you're right about her having requested no Halloween themes. If the candy corns are ok, I MAY still be able to gear it in a more candy themed way, rather than Halloween. I will wait to hear.

CastleQueen5
09-19-2014, 07:36 PM
I am diabetic so no candy corns. hahahhahaha. I dont collect Halloween atc cards, but if that is route it was going, just do what works for the card.

I am not sure which starter it is, so it is hard to say how you can make the candy go another direction.

Sarnie
09-19-2014, 07:59 PM
Bad luck Mace - it's a long time to wait until December !

Elena I am so pleased you are coming off homers !

I have no sets to work on right now ladies - any offers ?

BekaH
09-19-2014, 10:38 PM
Oh goodness... I thought you had put the chocolate on it... maybe allegrae did that too, lol. But anyways, I decided to take them in a candy route, but now I feel like a big idiot for doing THAT, since I know your diabetic! :( anyways, I still think they turned out cute. Hope they're not too much temptation!

BekaH
09-19-2014, 11:26 PM
Elena, I've got a starter headed your way.

I've also got a starter headed hana`s way as long as she wants it, lol

kentuckydakota
09-20-2014, 01:00 AM
OH gosh those are cute! They look delightfully delicious!

BekaH
09-20-2014, 01:09 AM
They were a.lot of fun :-)

kentuckydakota
09-20-2014, 01:38 AM
Ok I just gave out 16 itraders, no repeats:swoon:

If I've missed anyone and they are noticing, please let me know. I'm going to try not to save them up quite so far next time.

katelnorth
09-20-2014, 03:46 AM
Received the angel RR from BigToeStudio/MACE - looks great ladies. Personally, I think the cracked look of the angel actually suits it, so it works just fine! Got a few others hanging about which I need to leave iTraders for, and hopefully this weekend I will be able to get to the small pile of things waiting for me to work on. I might get time for some new starters, as well - if so, I'll send something your way, sarnie :)

Sarah's mom
09-20-2014, 07:47 AM
Sarnie, you heard my cry for help, now I'm going to rescue you. ;)
Starters are coming!:yes:

Sarnie
09-20-2014, 11:10 AM
Thank you Katelnorth and Sarah's mom x

Love the chocolate kisses cards ladies !

BekaH

Can anyone tell me who has the Asian theme set that I started? It was worked on by myself and deepdarkhana and then sent on. Was just wondering the whereabouts.

Sarnie
09-20-2014, 04:15 PM
Not me but I would love news of my Lobster set - I saw a pic which looked wonderful since when nothing



:cry::cry::cry:

BekaH
09-20-2014, 06:04 PM
Sarnie, are you talking about the lobster recipe cards? If so, I finished them and they're in the mail with your postage swap returns.

Xstitcher, can you send.. me an updated list of players with addresses? I don't think I.have the most recent

CastleQueen5
09-20-2014, 11:26 PM
I just love the cards Vampire. I did start those with the godiva chocolates. No wonder it went with more candy. I can eat high cocoa chocolate. I am the kind of living in the land of plenty eating too much diabetic. Not on meds any more. I feel better when I dont eat carbs or sugar. But I have had trouble with my blood sugar since high school. Then when I was pregnant. I think this is a common problem in America, our food choices are causing us to be ill.

All that to say, I love the cards and they wont send me on a binge.

CastleQueen5
09-20-2014, 11:31 PM
I know I posted photos of one lobster set, that I passed on.
Here they are again. I think I passed them on to someone who listed they like Crustations. Think think think

I have received two starter sets.
One from AlornJR and the other from StoneFX

Sarnie
09-21-2014, 05:55 AM
Great news on the lobster front - looking forward to the lobster menu card !

Thank you so much x

Better still CastleQueen5 - that is the other set, I wonder where they are !!!

Sarah's mom
09-21-2014, 10:41 AM
Don' be worried, Sarnie, I'm sure the lobsters will find their way home!;););)
I made some starter sets for you and Sarah added a set,too. The envelope will go out tomorrow morning!:yes:

BekaH

I'm just wondering about my Asian set :( deepdarkhana sent them on to someone, I just don't know who :/

a set by Kent/Dak, stonefx & me

prayer_at_night
09-21-2014, 12:26 PM
v_rose, not everyone is following the thread, so sometimes asking here will get you no answer - I'd just wait a bit and see if someone finishes them. :)

Vicky O, I got a cute Halloween starter set from you, thanks! :)

Also, I finished a set: katelnorth, Sarah´s mom and me.

Sarnie
09-21-2014, 01:36 PM
I love that set Sarah x

Can anyone tell me who has the Asian theme set that I started? It was worked on by myself and deepdarkhana and then sent on. Was just wondering the whereabouts.

I just looked to see what cards I have and I don't have any Asian cards either.


Sarnie, are you talking about the lobster recipe cards? If so, I finished them and they're in the mail with your postage swap returns.

Xstitcher, can you send.. me an updated list of players with addresses? I don't think I.have the most recent

Will go send you an updated list now. And will make sure I have your name on my cut and paste master list to pm each time as that would be the only reason you didn't get the update I sent 9-1.

Unless the gremlins are at it again!

xstitcher
09-21-2014, 05:59 PM
You can take me out of the homers next update :)

Almost missed this one!

Will move you back to active then send an update to vampiress_rose.


I just want to mention sometimes I miss things posted here or don't look here if I am short on time so if you want me to know anything important you can post it here, but also please pm me.

xstitcher

I just got back from the camping trip and started studying again for the boards. It is in December Sarnie because I only want to drive an hour at the most to keep my mind fresh for the test. There are other sites next month, but I don't want to drive 2-6 hours for those locations.

I drew one art / journal page while I was gone.

Sarnie
09-22-2014, 01:08 PM
Sounds best to me too Mace - no one should do a test after hours of driving !

Della
09-22-2014, 03:26 PM
Hi everyone!! Especially KD.....will be sending you a homers set and a starters set all at once! Hope you like the initial direction, they aren't identical. You will have to be surprised as I didn't scan them. Sorry about that, chieffette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (is anyone else old enough to recognize my obscure "Maxwell Smart/Get Smart" reference???) aaaahhh, those were the days when comedy was actually FUNNY!!!!!!!!! What a concept....:eek::D *climbs down off of soapbox* *THUNDEROUS cheering continues for 27 more minutes*

BekaH
09-22-2014, 03:31 PM
Rec'd starter sets from MACE and Sarah's Mom, and received a finished card from DeepDarkHana and Katie707 :)

Looking forward to those goodies coming my way

09-22-2014, 05:59 PM
Just thought I'd warn you lot - Mom and I made tons and tons of starters and are still going, so you might get a few from us in the next couple days. ;)
If anyone is out of sets, let us know and we'll get a package ready for you. :yes:
We are starter-making machines! :goofy:

Allegrae
09-22-2014, 06:12 PM
I'm always happy to receive starters!

Sarnie
09-22-2014, 08:14 PM
Ditto !

BekaH

Oh that is a beautiful set, Allegrae and Prayer_at_night!

Sarah, I'd LOVE a starter set from you! <3

kentuckydakota
09-22-2014, 08:23 PM
I'm so jealous of you and your mom doing art together, prayer! Whenever I start to make an art mess and my mom is near she straightens up while I work. I cut, she trashes. I paint she washes brushes. It sorta takes the fun out of the togetherness when you want to slap the person you're together with.:skeptical: Just kidding,;) love my neat-nic mom.

BekaH
09-22-2014, 08:29 PM
Hey, I don't think I'd mind if I had someone to clean up after me, as long as they didn't disrupt my process. Creating is the fun part, cleaning is NOT! LOL

kentuckydakota
09-22-2014, 08:33 PM
Yes, I guess if she'd wait to clean up after I'm done it would be a treat. And yeah, she does that too. She's a keeper.

BekaH
09-22-2014, 09:16 PM

Sarah's mom
09-23-2014, 10:54 AM
Today I received a wonderful starter set from Allegrae ( that seems to be made especially for me :wubclub: ).
Thanks a lot, also for the goodies!:wub:

I will send them on to you, vampiress rose! (It had occurred to me already that you might like working on them too! :idea:)

Yay ; two things that go together - vampires and bats ;)

Pixi
09-23-2014, 02:05 PM
Maybe coming in on a conversation that is over, but i thought i would weight in on it...In regards to the Kinder eggs...

I have bought Kinder eggs through a on-line store...and they ship to the US. I don't know why it would be against the law for kinder eggs, since our Cracker Jacks have a non-food object inside them...granted not the "toy" it use to be, but it is still in there. The kinder eggs we bought in Germany, were inside a plastic egg...( I LOVE them by the way!!) so i wouldn't think if they are for personal use or gifts they should be alright?


How do i sign up for this? i would love to try this! :)

MACE
09-23-2014, 04:59 PM
Della I used to watch that show for a long time! The phone shoe was awesome!

DDH that is an awesome starter!

Sarnie
09-23-2014, 05:03 PM
Hi Pixi send a PM to xstitcher and she will sign you up and put you on the list.
Just read the instructions on the first page of this thread which explains everything.
It is a lot of fun !

Pixi
09-23-2014, 06:08 PM
Thank you Sarnie! :) I surely will... Looking forward to it! :)

BekaH
09-23-2014, 06:50 PM
Welcome aboard Pixi :) I have a couple of starter sets here and once I add my touches, I can mail a set to you :) I already have your address :)

Pixi

WooHoo! Looking forward to receiving them...i can't wait! :)

I received a starter vampiresse_rose. I'll probably work on it this weekend.

xstitcher

Update of both the list and the pm list has been sent to everyone.

Welcome Pixi!

Vampire I sure got a kick out of your NEW dislikes>>>>>>>>sports. I dont really like sport in general but never thought to add them to a card dislike. I think I should edit my dislikes and make it shorter. But that is for another time.

ETA: i will work on sports cards, I just dont like sports in real life.

Sarnie
09-25-2014, 08:20 AM
I love watching sports but hated taking part, except for tennis !
However, I have some super sports ATCs in my collection - which include vintage, football and the Olympics.

Super homers today - thank you Katelnorth and Deep Dark Hana and thank you both for sending starter sets too.
Lovely post card from Karin - I will reply when I send you the homer I now hold for you x

MACE
09-25-2014, 11:39 AM
I was a tomboy when I was a youngster. Played football with the neighborhood kids and street baseball, etc. My favourite "doll" was a gi joe (I thought barbie was lame). I'd send Joe on "missions" to the bottom of the swimming pool and hide him in the drain. My mom wasn't too keen on that.

Sarnie
09-25-2014, 12:36 PM
I bet not Mace - my daughter had a green monster stretch thing which she loved, we would often find him tucked into bed with Barbie !

BekaH
09-25-2014, 02:05 PM
Lol. I don't like sports so I find it difficult to work on cards with a sports theme. I did find a way to add to a set that sarnie sent (with the different colleges on them)... but for the most part, I don't have any ephemera that would fit on sports themes cards. I don't play them or watch them.

prayer_at_night
09-25-2014, 06:07 PM
*lol* I'm the least sporty person on earth, sadly, but I love watching all kinds of sports! Especially love big events like the soccer world championship (which we won this summer, just sayin' ;)) or the Olympics... And I adore winter sports. It's the best thing that can happen on a winter Sunday - you start the TV and people are running through the snow on skis and shooting at little round plates. :biglaugh:


Also, mom and I will send a letter to Pixi tomorrow! :)

Pixi
09-25-2014, 07:04 PM
Wooohoooo! Mailllll! Can't wait Sarnie! :)

My youngest daughter is really into sports. I try hard to act interested and go to her games, but she caught me playing on my phone instead of watching. Hey, I watched when she was up to bat honest.

MACE
09-26-2014, 02:53 PM
I had a real neat idea for a card when I saw the new hand print stickers that Alorn Jr had. I asked her permission to borrow her daughters left hand and made these cool starters with her hand print. Who wants to be the second?

BekaH

Any news on my two Halloween starters? I sent one to allegrae and one to hana...

Elena, did you get the starter I sent you? I know you should have out, since you're like right next door to me! :-)

I'm sending two sets to pixi tomorrow and one to sweetgypsy top finish :-)

Allegrae
09-27-2014, 12:55 AM
I still have your starters, Vampiress. Received them 4 days ago. Will work on them over the weekend!

It will be a busy weekend! Received new sets from Nancy, prayer-at-night & sarah's mom.

prayer_at_night
09-27-2014, 05:31 PM
Thank you for the update, Allegrae! :) We hope you like the sets... :yes:

angelmuz, dear, we just sent you a letter with some sets a few days ago and now you're going homers only... if the sets bother you right now, feel free to either keep them until you can work on them, or just send them on. We're fine with whatever is best for you! :)

Sarnie
09-28-2014, 09:04 AM
I had a real break through on the RRR front last night - having stared at several sets with no clue what to add for days I suddenly had a brainwave and worked on three sets ...

I am making some starters today and then will do a big mail out !

katelnorth
09-28-2014, 07:34 PM
Worked on a couple of things today, so I only have one more set waiting for me (the polar bear stamps from sarnie). Hope to get to that sometime this week. Have a set of finished vintage typewriters, which I shall split up to send back - they are virtually identical and as one is going to sarnie (and the other, nancy), for once I'm in the position of being able to save someone postage, instead of the other way around! But I might wait until I can get a couple of starter sets made and mail them along, too...

And with that, it's off to bed.

(here's what they look like, just for fun)

Sarnie
09-28-2014, 08:10 PM
Oh Kate I just love the typewriter set - I hope nancy likes what we did too !

MACE
09-28-2014, 10:18 PM
That looks awesome Kate!

Hey guys AlornJr and I meet once a week for atc art day. Its going to be on Tuesdays from now on, and we are adding a third. Not sure what user name she'll have, but she should be on here soon. I send her the website tonight.

katiea707
09-28-2014, 11:46 PM
For the first time, in about a month, I have NO RR's to work on. It feels weird. LoL
Maybe I will have to create some starter sets.

Anybody have any sets they want to send my way?

BekaH
09-28-2014, 11:48 PM
You can send me some starters katie

kentuckydakota
09-29-2014, 03:09 AM
The typewriter sets are charming Kate and co.

I've got a few sets ready to send out tomorrow as well. I'll plan to send you one katiea707. At least we know they should get there quickly ;)

Sarnie
09-29-2014, 03:48 AM
I will send you a set or two katiea707 - but might take 10 days to get to you !

Pixi
09-29-2014, 12:28 PM
Alornjr...the zipper on the back of my envelope got stuck! But, i got it open! LOL

Looks like i will be busy for a few days! :D

Pixi
09-29-2014, 02:08 PM
Okay, everyone...just to be clear, if i am number 2 on these, then i just pick someone that is participating in the group to be number 3? And if i am number 3, i keep the card and send two back to the beginner, number 1?

Just wanting to make sure before i send these back...

ferretgirl
09-29-2014, 02:41 PM
You got it, Pixi....

MACE
09-29-2014, 05:34 PM
Yes pixi, but please check the list of people and make sure your card doesn't conflict with their "DON'T" list.

I am attempting to photo graph and mail off some sets.
So this is what it looks like

https://www.flickr.com/photos/38366050@N07/15392504251/
I am keeping the one with the missing flower, I will find it somewhere. This was Maggie Vicky and myself. I am sending both back to Maggie cause they are so different, I want her to keep the one she wants.

and this is what it looked like when it came to me

and Laura had a note to please send a certain one back to her.

Welcome csigeek124. That's strange that you can't pm. Maybe when you gals are arting Mace or AlornJr can send a pm in your behalf with your info.:)

CastleQueen5
09-30-2014, 11:34 PM
I sent our ladies in Germany very similar starters, Just cause I love to see how different they come out, because the 2 of them will send them to two different players. Do you like that Sarah's mom and Prayer at night or is that too much pressure? I hope you have fun with it.

MACE
09-30-2014, 11:41 PM
I finished some sets tonight. You will have to wait until they arrive in the mail though because AlornJr had started them so I gave hers to her and she made starters and sent them on to the second. Firetruck was one and the bird one is the other. Also did the 2nd for the Corn on the cob cards.

Sarah's mom
10-01-2014, 05:30 AM
Allegrae, those book covers are brilliant. What a very suitable addition. Thank you!
CastleQueen5, that was NO pressure, that was fun! :yes:
We worked on our sets seperated not to look at each others work and I'm very sure that they are different. The sets are already anywhere in this big world. Sorry, I don't know exactly where- Sarah always knows but she is at school so I can't ask her. :goofy:

Allegrae
10-01-2014, 11:50 AM

In the past few days, I've had about a zillion items in the post from this thread (ok, 4, but some envies with multiple things in) - 4 sets starters and a homer from sarah & karin; starters and 3 different finished cards from Katie and starters and a homer from maggie. Haven't got around yet to iTrader, but I have a neat little stack waiting for me. As well as 6 new homers to add to my one remaining one - the universe must have sensed that I'd nearly caught up :)

Pixi
10-01-2014, 06:36 PM
Will be working on those that i have received tonight and will get them mailed tomorrow or Friday...depending on what needs to dry and what doesn't. :)

i have one that i am sending home, two sets that need me to add to them...and send to the next person :)

MACE
10-01-2014, 07:15 PM
Take your time Pixi. Don't have to rush :) I left overdue Itraders today . I still have 2 to leave for bigtoe, one for katel and one for castle ... i hate the mandatory 2 hour wait. can't they put it down to one? LOL I went shopping and everything and the 2 isn't up yet!

Pixi
10-02-2014, 05:30 PM
Okay, another question...

When i finish the ATC's that come to me...and send the other two back...do i just give iTrader for the first two and they give for two and so on? Or just the one that started it in the first place?
And i don't give iTrader till i get mine, when the cards are going to another 3rd person, right?

Just wanted to make sure i was understanding all this correctly before i do it! :yes:

kentuckydakota
10-02-2014, 05:34 PM
Anytime you have the finished card in your hand that you are keeping, go ahead and send out itraders to the other 2 artists who worked on it. That's the easiest way too keep up with them.

By the way gals for those of you that tape your ATC's to cardboard or something like that, and even for taping something to a lightbox for easy removal, invest in scotch removable tape. It saves the recipient from maybe tearing your protective sleeve, etc. I always call it scotch blue tape because it has a blue cover. I've been using it for over 10 years. Picture below:

On a personal note…….I have finished a few cards. Need to get them in envelopes and off to home or a 3rd person to work on.

I still have a few to work on. Sorry they are taking so long at times but there are still not enough hours in a day. Just keep in mind if you send me cards I may have them for a while.

Okay...What is "homers"?:huh:

BekaH
10-08-2014, 01:24 PM
Pixi... Homers just means that they are no longer playing, or taking cards that need to be worked on. They are only taking cards that are finished that they've started or worked on! :) Hope this helps :yes:

Thanks guys for the compliments! BigToeStudio, Handprints is on the way!

CastleQueen5
10-08-2014, 02:29 PM
Homers are cards that are heading home to the starter. Or someone who only wants to get homers, and is not playing right now but still in the group.

prayer_at_night
10-08-2014, 02:31 PM
Actually, I think Pixi might mean "homer" cards - A homer is a card coming home to you, one that you started or worked on as the second player. The people on the "homers only" list are the ones v_rose just described, who will take no new sets, only the cards that need to come home to them. Hope I understood this right! :yes: If not, excuse me - I'm still ill. :goofy:

EDIT: Heather was faster! *lol*


And now, a big fat update from mom and me! Yesterday we had a TON of RR letters, it felt like Christmas! :D

Nancy sent us two beautiful starters - we are already fighting over who will get to work on which! :biglaugh:

CastleQueen5 sent us two very similar sets to see how different they turn out.

Allegrae finished two sets I started (one was me, mom and Allegrae and the other me, Sarnie and Allegrae), and sent them home to us, thank you!

AlornJR sent each of us a letter - just for the future, dear, you can always combine anything you want to send me and mom! We got in total two sets of starters, one set to finish and a homer set (me, Mace and AlornJR).

DeepDarkHana sent us two sets of homers (hippie_vampire, me, Hana and kentuckydakota, mom, Hana) and a lovely set of starters. :)


Thanks a lot, ladies! iTraders for homers will be coming soon. :yes:

Pixi
10-08-2014, 03:48 PM
Okay...that is what i thought it was...one or the other! :) Thank you everyone for answering! :)

prayer_at_night: i have a few sets that i have received from you and your mom...

i also have a set or two i believe from vampriess_rose :D

i think i have a couple of more from a few others, but don't have them right in front of me right now so i am not sure on names.

As soon as i arrive home and things settle there within a day or two...i will get started

I love this! <3

OH! Remember to ask for home address if you do not have the Eureka Springs, AR one...:D

BekaH
10-08-2014, 04:54 PM
Prayer_at_night - Why don't you AND your mom work on the cards and finish them up if you can't decide who wants to do what? I don't think anyone would have any issues with that since it is technically two different people :)

I've finished up all of the cards I have to work on right now, and have them addressed to four different people, I'm just waiting on more sets to come so I can have more than one set in an envie, save a little postage that way... Hopefully no one minds me doing that! ;)

10-12-2014, 08:43 PM
Something to think about and discuss!

No matter what the decision is this is not a mandatory thing for anyone, US or international……….

With postage so high for our international friends I know many of the 3rd player US gals send the 2nd player US gal of an international player’s starter to them to keep the international player from having to spend so much. Since we are usually sending to the US player anyway another card does not up our mailing cost.

I do, but like to ask the international player 1st to make sure it is ok with them. Don’t want to step on any toes or take away a choice of cards from the starter. This works out great if they are on line when I am and answer right away, but can delay cards going back if not.

What I want to discuss with all and ask the international players is this………..would you like for those of us who want to as the 3rd US player to automatically send the 2nd US player a card instead of asking every time?

If all the international players are OK with it I can add something to the instructions on page one outlining this option.
If there are any international players who don’t want this I can put something on the address list next to those who do.

Making any additions to the list will create the need to remove something from the list. Right now it looks like Chardonnay1965 and JAD would be removed as neither has been on the board since January 2014. The other options are to break it up into 2 lists or remove any of you active players who have all your starters home and don’t plan on coming back to play.

Personally I would like to go to 2 lists as the thought of removing Chardonnay1965 who started this group and JAD who is inactive for health reasons makes me really really sad. And it makes me just as sad to think about removing any of you I have made round robin cards with and our still active on the board. Of course I will do whatever the majority wants.

Anyway as I said in the beginning, this is not a mandatory thing for anyone, US or international. If a 3rd US players wants to send both cards back to an international starter player or the international player wants to be asked what they want every time that is perfectly alright.

Hope this makes sense. It does to me but I am already in my head and I know what I am trying to say. If anyone wants to clarify anything be my guest.

Thank you for taking the time to read this short novel. Looking forward to some opinions.

big toe studio
10-12-2014, 11:24 PM
if there are significant differences in the cards to go the international starter, you could always post them both to give the orig. artist a choice
I like saving postage for int. players

Sarnie
10-13-2014, 11:54 AM
That is very kind - quite a few people already just send one homer after asking if that is OK !

I got two lovely starter sets this morning from CastleQueen5 and Nancy (along with a homer) - I was so inspired I sat right down and worked on them and will be sending them on asap.

MACE
10-13-2014, 02:56 PM
Doesn't affect me. When I am the third for an international player, I just send them a starter, so I'm not just sending the returns to them.

Mace

xstitcher
10-13-2014, 03:22 PM
The thing is postage for the international player to us is about 3 times what we spend to send to them so when we in the US send them the 2nd player card they have to send it back to the US for a lot more than we would spend if we sent it to the US player.

I am trying to find out if the international players want us to send to player 2 and save them some money or if they want to do it themselves.

kentuckydakota
10-13-2014, 03:35 PM
I generally send just the homer to the international player unless the cards are quite different or the 3rd player is also international.
If the cards are different I try to post them to the thread, giving the international player who started them a chance to pm me and ask for a specific card. If I don't hear from them, I send them both to choose from. I don't mind sending them just one and mailing the 2nd out from here, but I don't want to have to chase them down to see which one they want.
Usually I'm mailing out a pile at a time and it's enough for my brain just to remember to put stamps on the envelopes.:twitcy:

prayer_at_night
10-13-2014, 04:03 PM
Answering for mom and me here. ;)
We are both grateful when we get only one homer card, but we also don't mind getting two - it's always nice to save postage, but only if the third player feels like it.
Don't feel pressured to do it! But we are not angry if you wish to save us the extra postage. :yes:
Thanks to everyone who has done that so far, by the way! :wub:

katelnorth
10-13-2014, 06:24 PM
I feel pretty much the same as Sarah - it's lovely when someone sends a finished card on for us to save postage, but then again, I really don't mind having to do it myself. When I do get both back and the 2nd player was in the US, I will usually take the chance to put some new starters in myself, unless that player is on homers only. So, don't feel you have to send the 2nd card home, but also, you don't need to check with me - it's ok not to. (As others have said, when the cards are quite different I usually get a pm or a message here asking which one I like, if I have a preference - as I am online very often, this usually works well.)

Thanks for thinking of us, MaryAnn. :) It's true postage is getting more and more expensive - basic international cost for a letter is up to £1.28 for me, which is about 2 bucks - anything over 20g is £2.15, which is well over $3. It won't stop me playing, mind you, but it does stop me hosting more than one swap a year or so!

As for the length of the list, why not split it into two - Active Players and Homers Only? It would take a long time to fill up either list if it were split, and I don't mind receiving two pms (three really, as you also send the list of how to send to everyone at once).

Pixi
10-13-2014, 08:48 PM
I have some cards going out tomorrow for the 3rd round...if there is anyone that does not want them...Otherwise, I will pick and choose! :D

Also some homers going out by the next day too! :) I will be glad to send Homers to state side for anyone international...before I send it on to you. I will pm before I do this though! :)

Mom got two RR letters today:
One with two homer sets from Mr. Uby Jean :wub: She loves both sets!
And one with a very pretty starter from ineedtocreate - we both like the set and will probably both work on it! :)


Also, mom and I had a big RR day on Sunday (we needed to try out all the gorgeous new stuff I got for my b-day! :jiggy: ) - we worked on... perhaps a dozen sets, three of which are now done - the rest will be sent to third players soon! :yes:

Here's the finished sets:

Maritime with lighthouse postage stamps is DeepDarkHana, me and mom - I used my brand new heat tool to heat emboss the compass rose :jiggy: and mom added the lighthouses. We hope you like the set, Hana!

Summer with flip flops is AlornJr, mom and me - I got the starter set from Alorn, but I didn't know where to go with it so mom played with it first and added the grass and "barefoot" advise, and then I had to finish it! :D We hope you like the way we finished this, Amber!

And the Asian kids are heymaggie, Sarnie and mom - I know that mom added the golden stuff! ;) We bought the golden kanji stickers at the craft fair we visited on my birthday and they were perfect for the set. :)
Hope you girls like the set!


Is someone out of sets to work on? We have various sets that need a third player, and also more starter sets to send out. :) Just let us know if you want any; otherwise we'll send them randomly. :)

Hi Sarah! I will take some more! :)

Is it okay if I wanted to finished a set? I did #2, and that would also make me number #3...

I have a set for Sarah's Mom and prayer_at_night that I would like to finish and send myself...partly cause they are sort of special, partly because they have a little bulk to them and I don't want anyone else paying for it. :)

Let me know...:D And if it is alright with Sarah's Mom and prayer_at_night also...

:)

Awesome, thanks.

I'm going to go ahead and mail the few sets I've been holding onto to some ladies. Some are homers and some are finishers.

Pixi I don't think you can be number 2 and 3 ... I've wanted to do that myself, but these gals have such good ideas! Alornjr said she'd send you one to be a 2nd on. Its craft day here at my house today.

Robin
10-14-2014, 07:14 PM
I mailed a starter set too:

Alornjr - October 9th
Kentucky Dakota - October 9th

10-14-2014, 07:17 PM
Ooooh! It wasn't that I thought Someone wouldn't do good,I just didn't want anyone to have to pay the expense of sending them over cause of what I put on them. But it's oooooooook!! :)

BekaH
10-14-2014, 11:29 PM
Pixi, when you send them to the 3rd person, why don't you put in a few dollars to reimburse them for shipping? If you're really wanting to pay the postage, that would work :)

Rec'd lots of goodies today! The bat set from DDH and MRubyJean, these turned out awesome gals! A couple of finishers, a starter set from Sarnie, and my angel cards made it home! :)

Pixi
10-15-2014, 09:50 PM
That is a good idea! :idea: i will do that.

BekaH
10-16-2014, 12:10 AM
Happy to help! ;)

here are a couple of sets I finished up yesterday.

The bats were worked on by DDH, MRubyJean and me.

The card with the butterfly was worked on by Sarnie, Katie and myself.

Eye Candy alert! Meep Meep!

I loaded some photos to Flickr. Ready?
Lets start with a HOMER vicky and Katelnorth and I did this. Vicky background. Kate, the tape and the black item, either a chair or a lamp. I added the stamped lady, the black butterflies and flowers and the words.

Then keeping in a theme, I am person 2 on this one from VICKY, I added a different stmaped lady from the same stamp set.

So If anyone is just in love with these stamped ladies. Here is a link to some starters that do not have a home yet.

I do love cards with ladies or women or females So I thought why not make up a few cards.

Here are two sets that I was the second, and I will be mailing these off.

Magggie sent me this red background with the gold center
I just stamped a pagoda. I might add trim or something before I mail

This set is from Sarnie, she added the big numbers.

Yesterday I was not feeling like I wanted to commit this card to a theme yet. SO I just added a flower. The third player can decide where this card was going in the sense of a theme.

CastleQueen5, love those lady starters, especially the one on the upper right... but they are all awesome. :wub:

Here are two more finished sets:

Black and gold with text background is katelnorth, Sarnie and Sarah's mom. I think it turned out lovely! :yes:
Since they are all very similar, we will send Kate and Sarnie each a homer card and something else to work on, okay? :)

Oriental goodness is ineedtocreate, me and mom - I love these to pieces!
ineedtocreate sent us the arches with the beautiful corner design, then I added the border at the bottom and the oriental guys. Mom totally rocked them then - all the glitter and rhinestones and gold absolutely turned them into little art pieces! :wub:

CastleQueen5
10-16-2014, 01:25 PM
I think the upper right ladies are heading your way Prayer at night.

Sometimes I feel that way about these CRRR< you never know what the card is waiting to become.

Hey Vampire rose, I will send you a set of pink ladies. I just love this stamp set.

It doesnt belong to me but my friend Betty, we got together yesterday and played in her craft room. I am glad she had learned to share at an early age.

BekaH
10-16-2014, 01:48 PM
Awesome :)

Sarah's mom
10-16-2014, 02:39 PM
ineedtocreate, my daughter posted the oriental set already.
It really is sooo nice, believe me. :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:
Sarah chose the blue one in the middle, so you can decide whether you prefer the red or the green one. Let me know, please.

Thought I'd share the progress on these so far. These were started by Sarnie and added to by me, now they're on the way to a third person. I really like the direction that they are headed in... P.S. the postage stamps are from africa ;)
