Layers, Textures, Glazes Swap IV

Welcome to Layers, Textures, Glazes IV - a mixed media swap. This swap is for cards that have mixed media layers, textures, and glazes - layers of paint, papers, textures, stamps, hand-drawn elements, you name it, it goes!!! Any subject or color is appropriate. The cards for the first two versions of this swap have been absolutely stunning so I hope you will join me for round IV.

Swap Details/rules:

1) ALL Participants - please write your real name and userId on the back of all of your cards. Please mail cards in plastic protectors (the flimsy kind is fine).

2) US participants: send a SASE with 42 cents postage (for 3 cards) or 62 cents postage (for 6 cards). Please write your userID on the back of your envelope and whether you have sent 3 or 6 cardes. If you plan on sending a bubble envelope or large envelope instead of a regular-sized envelope, note that shipping rates have changed and you should probably have $1 of postage or so on it.

3) International participants: Please send me an address label. I would appreciate an extra card or some country-specific stamps/empherma since I will be covering your return postage (a little under $1 USD per envelope at our new rates) but this is not necessary. I will have to limit international participants to 20 members b/c of shipping costs.

4) All cards are due IN MY HANDS July 20th. Returns will be mailed promptly after the deadline and late cards will be returned to you or, if I have enough, swapped with other late cards. We have lots of time to complete this swap, so please be on time.

5) You are welcome to send one or two sets of cards. If you are sending an extra set of cards, please send extra stamps to cover the increased shipping (58 cents instead of 41 cents).

6) Please PM me for my address when you are ready to ship . I leave feedback for all cards right before I swap them.

7) IF YOU ARE SENDING IN BULKY CARDS, YOU NEED TO SEND IN EXTRA LOOSE STAMPS TO COVER THEM! I will use these stamps on other envelopes to offset the cost of shipping bulky cards. Thanks! :)

Thanks for considering my swap!

I wanted everyone to know that I will be out of town starting tomorrow again. I have a conference to go to in Austin, TX, and then will be visiting the Dallas-Fort Worth ATC group for a sleepover. I return late on Tuesday night, so I will be updating my swaps the following wednesday. As before, Reuben will stay here and get my mail, hopefully this time putting it in the right place. Thanks!

Adriayna - just wondering if my cards made it to you yet. I mailed last week and I'm getting ready to go on vacation and want to make sure they've landed. Thanks!

adriayna
06-22-2008, 09:37 PM
Lisa, not yet, but I always get a bunch of mail on monday. When did you mail them? My post office is always a bit slow compared to the standard times, I fear :(

adriayna

Dana - I mailed out several things yesterday including the cards for this swap but can't remember if I did a return envelope or not? If not - hold my cards hostage and I will send in extra postage with my abstract cards. Sorry I also forgot to scan them, doh!... Jackie

adriayna
07-16-2008, 12:46 PM
Ok, I'll let you know when I get it, jazzie :)

seekingforart
07-16-2008, 01:24 PM
I sent mine early last week, have they arrived?

adriayna
07-16-2008, 01:26 PM
Probably. I have a big stack of mail here and I haven't gotten through it all yet because of the site upgrades and company.

adriayna
07-16-2008, 08:57 PM
More cards are here! :)

seekingforart
07-19-2008, 08:33 AM
I mailed them on july 7 the same day I posted them and I hand carried to the post office! This is the first time I may loose some cards! Oh well....Thanks!

adriayna
07-21-2008, 09:03 AM
Oh geez, well, all we can do is hope for the best. Sometimes they take the "long way" of getting here. I had a set for one of my last swaps take 3 weeks -- and it was only from two states away! :(

adriayna
07-21-2008, 01:09 PM
Seekingforart - our mystery has been solved. I got an "i'm sorry" bag from the post office today. The cards are fine, but the envelope was mangled by some machine at the post office. I have your return address, so it will all work out! :) Yay!

adriayna
07-21-2008, 01:10 PM
And, I have cards from:

baleau - wow! Execellent work. I love them!
triskele - very cool! And thanks for the extra
Jazzie - yay! What fun cards.
Maxie23 - lovely! And thank you for the extra!
Immi - great work!!!
Rockstargirl - neat cards!!! thanks for the extra as well.
bsvab - excellent work!
teeejay - great job! thanks for the extra. I bet Art & Soul was a blast!

adriayna
07-21-2008, 01:12 PM
And now, for some updates. I plan on swapping these out this week and having them in the mail by Friday or Saturday morning. If you have cards in transit, I hope they arrive on Thursday so that I can swap them out! :)

adriayna
07-23-2008, 04:41 PM
Are there any outstanding cards? I hope to get these swapped out tonight and then I will hit the post office tomorrow or Friday

adriayna
07-24-2008, 09:00 AM
Seekingforart--your cards had arrived. I must have put them in the box without marking them off.

I wanted to know that all of the returns have been mailed this morning! I will be leaving feedback for everyone today. Thank you all for a wonderful swap! :)

jazzie
07-28-2008, 11:47 PM
I got one of my cards back - don't know if it's just an oops or maybe my cards were late and there weren't enough to trade with? But if anyone else got theirs back and wants to trade - let me know.

Rockstarsgirl, Immi, bsvab, neca84, and Eric Cannon are out of the running -Eric are those eggshells?

adriayna
07-29-2008, 07:10 AM
Sorry about that, Jazzie. I seem to have mixed up a bit. This is the first time it happened in one of my swaps. I'll blame it on Reuben--he was bugging me nonstop while I was swapping! If you want, I will swap it with one of my hostess gifts.

WendyK
07-29-2008, 08:49 AM
