Due Date – Nov 15, 2018
Sign up - anytime until full but no later then Sep. 20, 2018
Withdraw – None, once signed up with a theme you’re in so PLEASE be sure you want to play
Number of Cards - 4 cards for a full group or 8 if you're playing 2 groups (4:4 or 8:8)
Number of participants - 8 groups of 5 players


September Pick-a-Theme (PAT)

To play you must have:
* an established positive iTrader rating of +15
* no negatives within the last 6 months
* no neutrals for lack of cards/communication within the last 3 months
* NO EXCEPTIONS so PLEASE don’t ask

Please sign up on the thread and read the directions before starting.

DO NOT over commit yourself. You may sign up for a maximum of 2 groups. Once you commit to a group, other players begin working on your card, so for this reason you cannot withdraw from a PAT. If you signed up and I don’t get your cards by the due date, you risk 5 negative iTraders (1 from each group member and your host).

Please give 2 weeks for mailing as I live in Europe. If your cards arrive late without communication, you will be given a neutral iTrader by me. Your cards will be returned to you and it will be up to you to honor the trade with your fellow group members or risk 4 negative iTraders.

General Information:

This swap contains 8 groups of 5 members
Sign-ups will end when all spots are filled or no later then Sep. 20, 2018
Pick a group of preferred media then pick a theme
Please have a theme chosen within three days of signing up or you'll lose your spot in the group
You must be willing to work on all the other themes in your group
Make a card for each player in your group in their chosen theme (always ask if you're not sure!)
Receive a card of your chosen theme in return from each member of your group
Send quality cards you are proud of and would want to receive yourself. I am not a collage artist, if parts of your card start falling off, I will send them back to you to fix.
To cut down on possible mail machine malfunctions, NO bulky embellishments, keep it flat
Once you sign up with a theme you can’t withdraw, as some artist start their cards immediately, wait until the player and theme are updated in 2nd post (where the groups are) or you'll risk doing double work, if changes are made
CARDS are to be in my hands on/before Nov.15, 2018. Please communicate, if there are any problems.

Card information:

cards must be standard ATC size, 2.5”x3.5”, on sturdy paper
NO bulky embellishments, keep it flat
each card should be shipped in a protective plastic sleeve
on the back of all your cards please put the following info:


September 2018 PAT
GROUP NUMBER
recipient’s username
your AFA username


if you want to post your cards to the thread for all to enjoy please do, but it is not required. However, if they get lost in the mail, you have proof that you did get them done.
a Hostess card is not required, but always cherished and appreciated

I appreciate those of you who want to share your materials, but my talents are limited to drawing/painting so what I receive for any other purpose I share with others. I don’t mind passing it on I just want you all to know I do.

Mailing information:

I’m from Slovenia, Europe so you all are pretty much international to me. Please give 2 weeks of mailing time for your cards to reach me.
Per PAT rules, all cards must be mailed to the host. Please do not ask to mail to players directly for whatever reason as it is not allowed and will result in negative iTrader.

ALL participants:

Please include a business-sized envelope, addressed to you or a large label with clearly written address on it. Please label the back of BOTH of your envelopes; the one you mail to me and your return envelope, with September PAT, your AFA username, and your group number(s).
Please include well concealed $2 US bills, if you are in one group. If you join 2 groups, please include $3 US. No coins, please, unless you want to include Euros. In that case please safely conceal 2€. Make sure it doesn't tear the envelope. I also have PayPal, if it's more convenient to you. (PS: Your country's stamps are of no use to me. I need to buy my country's (Slovenia) stamps to send mail.)

Theme information:

EASY/REGULAR THEMES:


Generic themes where it's easy to think up a card; for example fairies, cats, dogs, flowers, etc.
or less generic themes which require a little more thought or research but are not difficult to find a reference or collage images. Examples include: flying pigs with hats, red poppies, whimsical houses, nature fairies, etc.
(Real people or characters in books or movies are not regular themes!)

ADVANCED/CHALLENGING THEMES:

Themes that usually require research and reference. Examples are real people, "in the style of", characters from books or movies or perhaps obscure themes such as “Dogs in Victorian England.” They can also be themes that are difficult to interpret like music or a difficult poem. These can require a lot of thought and effort. If you have internet references please include the best one of them so I can post it for your fellow group members.


Remember that for PATs, when you get your lovely returns, the hostess (me) and all your fellow group members get iTraders!

My man GODLEY just became a papa. His wife gave birth a sweet girl, Audrey Grace, 7.6 pounds, 20 inches. So Audrey Grace Godley. What a great name.

Again he is a diamondbacks pitcher #52. I have always liked him since his initial game, I was rooting for him to get a contract with the Dbacks. They kept sending him back to the minors due to too many men on the roster.

Oh CastleQueen! I love your challenges! So often you pick something quintessentially American that I have to research. It's great fun.

You do realize your previous post is completely nonsense to me. I love it anyway!

CastleQueen5
09-08-2018, 01:19 AM
I thought it might be gobble de gook. They made a big deal about the birth of the baby during the diamondbacks baseball game, since the father is a pitcher for the team but is on Paternity leave.

But there was a movie My Man Godfrey (1936) - IMDb and the My man GODLEY was a pun on that. They all seem to have nick names. There is even a few games where the whole league wears jersey with their nick names, instead of their usual last name.

But I am so glad I can challenge you. I am kind of into baseball since I had cancer and was stuck on the couch while hubby watched BB games. I hated it before.

I had a similar experience with cricket. When I was a child boys learned how to play cricket but not girls. I therefore found the game tedious, slow and totally baffling. Then one day my husband took my two sons to a one day match. I spent the day trying to spot them on the TV (no chance!). I started to understand the game and actually enjoyed it.

Welcome Essy! Pitbull/Staffordshire terrier is too specific for group 2, though. Dogs are an easy/regular theme but specific breeds fall into challenging themes. Let me know of another theme.

Had time today to make my Group 6 cards. They are: fish for dithespy, mushrooms for catladybj, moon for judylee (with or without cowing jumping over), Zach Godley for Castlequeen5 and a hostie card.

JudyLee, you must let me know, honestly, if the moon card is too much cow, not enough jumping, not enough moon, etc. I was trying to do something quite different from the last cow/moon card I made for you and I may have gone slightly off the rails here. If it's not suitable, please let me know and I'll remake it!

Heather, you said any ace, so I did clubs, as I had 4 or 5 of them and less of the others! As far as I could see, no one else had posted their cards yet from that group, so I hope I haven't duplicated anyone's Ace.

dithespy
09-30-2018, 05:07 PM
Fabulous cards Miss M and Katelnorth.

I love my fish card Kate. I've just completed my cards for the group and I haven't used the ace of Clubs so no duplication there. I will post them to the thread tomorrow.

katelnorth

My husband and I live with our son and DIL and 3 teenage grandsons in one big rented house. Now the Landlord/owner wants to sell. We have to be out by Nov. 30. Found a new rental in the next town over, and will start moving in on Nov. 15. Will be sure our hostess has my new address on that date. Please don't worry, anything going to my current address after that date will be forwarded to the new one. I am unable to give out my new address until Nov. 15.

CastleQueen5
11-06-2018, 10:52 AM
We have 2 living rooms, A front room and back room and my daughter Erika lived in that room for a few years. I had made her bedroom into my craftroom, and her stay was only temporary when she moved back in. Yep 3 years later, she moved out. So she moved out SEPT of 2017, and I have been making it my room, a big screen tv, an ellipticall machine, a couch to read on. Yesterday my daughter called it mom's second CRAP room. We were still working on a name for said room. Green couch room? Still no name. I think, it needs a positive vibe.

My cards went out yesterday. I sent each group in its own envie, however if you want to return them in one envie that's fine. I also split $3 between the 2 envies. I mailed later than I should have, sorry about that...but at least this year I didn't get my groups mixed up! : )
We have/had 12 cats-I tend to take in strays&semi-ferals. One I've had since he picked me as his Purrson when he was a kitten, Pookie, has been my constant shadow, always with me. He'd lay up around my shoulders&neck while I walked around. He took sick suddenly last week, prolly was sick longer than that. The vet said he was very good @hiding it. It broke my heart, but I had to send him to the Rainbow Bridge. His mom&uncle are still with me. I just couldn't accomplish much for a couple days, but finally finished up my cards. I wanted to mail by the 5th, so I guess mailing them the 8th was pretty good for me. I am wishing them a speedy journey, together! : ) Y'all wish&pray with me!
Thank you for hosting this swap, Natasha!

I'm in group 5 - I'm fine if you want to go ahead and send returns. If Ann pops back on and has our cards we can swap individually, right? That's what happened in a prior PAT I was in. If the others in the group want to wait a few more days, I'm ok with that too.

CastleQueen5
