NOW TAKING SIGN UPS!


Well, I thought I was feeling like taking a break from hosting / joining anymore swaps for awhile but I recently did a project for my cousin's baby shower where I painted a dreamcatcher in acrylics on a canvas (below), and now I'm hooked on dreamcatchers. So, obviously the styles you can come up with for these are numerous. The only requirement is that they must be hand drawn/ hand painted please. Please submit work you would be happy to receive. You can feature other things on your cards as well, but please make the dreamcatcher the main focus. For more inspiration: https://www.pinterest.com/bekadockery3/project/

The Rules:

*All cards must be 2.5" x 3.5" with straight edges, otherwise they´ll be returned to you. If they take more than one stamp to send, please include the same amount to return.

* Best work only please. I try my best to swap effort for effort. Please only send in art you'd be happy to receive :)

* Please sign up by posting to this thread ONLY, NOT through a PM

* No problem if you have to drop out, but please let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader... I HATE to do this, but it's only fair to the participants who DO turn in cards on time.

* Each card should be sent in its own plastic sleeve. I CANNOT stress this enough.

* Please include username, real name, and swap name on the back of your cards. We can't leave Rep Points if we don't know who you are.

* Please make sure to package your cards to where they arrive safely and undamaged. You would not believe the number of envelopes I have received with sides or tops torn (and this is in individual trades!)

* Please send a self-addressed envelope with your name and address CLEARLY typed or written on. Include appropriate postage separately in envelope (Please do not put them on the envelope).

* USA participants - Please send the same number of stamps to me that it takes to mail your cards. INTERNATIONAL participants - I can accept paypal ($2) or (3) unused US postage stamps or ($2) well concealed US dollars. Please let me know when you are mailing them what method you will be using to pay for return shipping.

* If you must send a LARGE envelope, please include accurate return postage.

* Please allow enough time for your cards to get to me. I plan to swap on time. If cards are not in my hands by Oct 29, they will be returned to you, using your stamped envelope. I am in TN. If you are in doubt of how long it will take you to get your cards to me, I advise to mail at least 14 days ahead of time.

* Please send me a PM when you need my address.

* Host cards are not required, but definitely appreciated.

****MOST IMPORTANTLY - Have fun!

I like the overlap in the feathers. It gives a nice sense of motion as if they are blowing in a gentle breeze, especially in the top right dreamcatcher.

BekaH
10-24-2016, 09:30 PM
Lucy -- i hope you are better. No worries as this swap will likely be a late one anyways. I've been having terrible sinus headaches as well... They put me on another antibiotic and more steroids today so we will see... I do know that the ears don't often clear up Until the original problem is fixed so hopefully if i get rid of sinus infection then my ears will clear up.

Traveling tomorrow for my daughter's procedure Wednesday. I appreciate all the well wishes and prayers

Suzi
10-24-2016, 10:21 PM

Dreamcatchers were captured in my mailbox yesterday. I think they might find a home near my dream basket.

Many thanks to PakmK8778, Painter65, and Mushu for the great cards.
