PAT Guidelines/Rules:
1. In order to participate in this PAT, you must:
• Have an established iTrader rating of +15.
• Have received no negatives within the past 6 months.
• Have received no neutrals within the past 3 months.
2. Themes must be chosen within 48 hours of joining the swap.

4. Each ATC must be the standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
5. Each ATC must be original and unique.
6. You must follow the themes requested by your group participants EXACTLY. Theme is the main focus of a PAT, so no deviations from theme requests are allowed. If a player requests a green cat and a blue one is submitted, it will be returned.
7. Embellishments must be relatively flat and lightweight; no bulky embellishments.
8. ATCs must have a sturdy background. You must have 2 layers!
9. Each ATC must be in an individual plastic sleeve (please no connecting photo album sleeves without also including individual sleeves).
10. Each ATC should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, your location, group number, and recipient name.

Mailing Guidelines:
1. Please mail ATCs in a business sized envelope, spreading the ATCs over the space of the envelope. On the back of your envelope please put down the swap name, your user name & the Group(s) you are signed up for.
2. Please protect your ATCs from damage in the mail by including a cardstock background or folder, or by placing individual cards within sturdy sleeve protectors.
3. If you tape your ATCs onto a sturdy background when mailing, please use an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape. I don’t want anyone’s beautiful artwork to be damaged by tape.
4. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your return ATCs.
5. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns if you are in just one group. Include a stamp for an additional ounce if you are in two groups.
6. If you are mailing internationally, please provide the following for your returns:
a. A large label with your name/address clearly written on it for returns.
b. Two well-concealed $1 bills per group. I am also set up for Pay Pal in case you don't have any $$$. PM me for that info.

Make Note:
I AM AN ON-TIME HOST!!! I WILL NOT WAIT FOR YOUR ATCs! THEY NEED TO BE TO ME EITHER ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 10th. Late ATCs--regardless of the reason (health, personal tragedy, job demands, etc.)--will result in a neutral iTrader from me and possibly each of the other participants in your group(s). No ATCs at all will result in a negative iTrader not only from me, the host, but also from your fellow artists in your group(s). When you are ready to mail your ATCs, please just private message me for my address. iTraders will be given when ATCs are received by me and appropriate theme material is verified. * If all ATCs in your group(s) have arrived to me before the due date then I will mail them out earlier. *

*A host ATC would make me tickled pink but is never required.
*After you have received your ATCs please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and for each participant in your group(s).

Now let's have some fun!!

Ferretgirl, are there limits on the APC regular vs Challenging.

So if I wanted to do Eletraka woman and DYNO girl, which is challenging, can I be in group 6 of group 7 or both?

ferretgirl
10-05-2018, 04:05 AM
CastleQueen5, I did not make any stipulations this time about themes in the APC groups so you can do both groups if you are interested in doing so.

CastleQueen5
10-05-2018, 10:52 AM
Ok I did want to make sure. I will do group 6 my theme will be: One or both of the, 1970s TV show characters Elktra Woman and Dyna girl, not the remake.

10-06-2018, 04:15 AM
Okay, CastleQueen, can you please look everything over & make sure I got it all? Double set of eyeballs never hurts:jiggy:

dithespy
10-06-2018, 05:48 AM
CastleQueen, you did it again! Elektra woman and Dyna girl didn't travel to the UK so it's another new one for me. But H R PufnStuf did find its way to British TV - probably because it starred Jack Wild. It was around the time of BananaSplitz, if I remember correctly.

CastleQueen5
10-06-2018, 10:40 AM
Yes, it was in fact around because of BananaSplitz. The costume designers were asked to make another show.


I can still hear the song for Electra Woman and Dyna girl in my head today. I loved the show and the thing is it only had 16 episodes. I read that they were very short, like 11 minutes, so they condensed them to 8 on DVD. I guess the rest of the time was for commercials. Most TV shows are 21-25 minutes with time for commercials.

CastleQueen5
10-06-2018, 10:44 AM
One or both characters from the 1970's tv show: Elektra Woman & Dyna Girl (See post #16) Pl 1: Five Diamonds/Pl 2: Six Diamonds/Pl 3: Seven Diamonds/Pl 5: Eight Diamonds



I added the word Characters so that those not familiar would not think both referred to 2 different tv shows.

CastleQueen5
10-06-2018, 10:47 AM
After designing the characters and sets for Hanna-Barbera's The Banana Splits (NBC, 1968-1970), the Kroffts' producing career began in 1969 with the landmark children's television series H.R. Pufnstuf. The series introduced the team's trademark style of large scale, colorful design, puppetry, and special effects. Featuring a boy who has been lured into an alternate fantasy world and can never escape, the team also established a storytelling formula to which they would return often.


The Kroffts also favored quirky superhero stories, often with children involved as the heroes or part of a hero team. Particularly visionary and popular Krofft productions have included The Bugaloos (1970), Lidsville (1971), Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1973-1975), Land of the Lost (1974), The Lost Saucer (1975), Electra Woman and Dyna Girl (1976), and Wonderbug (1976).

Where is everyone? Ferret girl if it works out better I will hop up to Group One with Essy

theme still being~~~Peace Signs. :)

ferretgirl
10-06-2018, 03:10 PM
TerriF, it has been noticed that artists are not signing up for PATs like they used to. Don't know the reason why but I think PATs are a lot of fun. Hopefully, artists will start signing in more soon. I will put you up with Essy; thanks! Did you still want to stay in Group 2, also?

Terri F
10-06-2018, 03:13 PM
Yes I will stay in Group 2 as well.

Thanks Collette. :)

ferretgirl
10-06-2018, 08:26 PM
Oooops! TerriF, you can only be in two groups so you need to decide which two groups you want to be in. Sorry about that.

Donnacr
10-06-2018, 10:04 PM
I cannot resist a Zentangle group - please let me start Group 8 with the theme: grid based patterns.

CastleQueen5
10-06-2018, 11:15 PM
I see a typo
HR Rufnstuf

Is H.R. Pufnstuf although when I googled spelling was not all that important, it worked when I spelled Puffinstuff wrong.

ferretgirl
10-07-2018, 03:41 AM
Hi Donna! Sure, getting you signed up now...

ferretgirl
10-07-2018, 03:42 AM
Donna, do you have some examples of what you are looking for? Or links so that other artists can look your theme up?

ferretgirl
10-07-2018, 03:43 AM
Thanks, CastleQueen5. That is why I figured I'd better have you look it over. That is something easily fixable=)

Donnacr
10-07-2018, 08:47 AM
The easiest way to find what I want is to go to http://tanglepatterns.com/tag/grid-based-tangles - there are 295 tangles to choose from.

Terri F
10-07-2018, 09:58 AM
Yes Collette.

I wished to be taken out of Group 3 and up with Essy group one and stay in Group 2.

Group one~ Peace Signs
Group two~ Realistic bees.


Thanks :)

TAD, I've got you down now. Thanks!

ferretgirl
10-07-2018, 01:58 PM
JudyLee, Do you have a theme yet for Group 6?

Sorxia
10-07-2018, 02:23 PM
I'd like Group 6 with a theme of Suns, with or without a quote: p1- 5 of spades, p2- 6 of spades, p3- 7 of spades, p4- 8 of spades

I'd also like Group 7 with a theme of Saints (like St Francis or the Virgin Mary, those kind of Saints, not the football players): p1- 2 of Hearts, p3- 3 of Hearts, p4- 4 of Hearts, p5- 5 of Hearts

Thanks!

Oh- no quotes on the Saints, please

casivonmir
10-07-2018, 02:57 PM
Can I have a spot in group 1 please, I would like Alice from Alice in Wonderland

Essy
10-07-2018, 03:11 PM
Can I also play in group 8, please? With mushroom(s) as the theme. I looked up the grid base tangles, they are pretty cool Donnacr!

katelnorth
10-07-2018, 04:40 PM
Could I please have a space in Group 4 (Easy theme collage). I was debating APCs, but done a lot of them lately, and think my brain needs a rest! It's possible I'll pop back in for a space in regular theme collage, too, but might see what some of the themes are before I commit. Things get busier and busier in the autumn...

Anyway, my theme for Group 4 will be things with wings (which wouldn't normally have them) - if that's an easy theme. If that's not an easy theme, I'll go with mermaids.

ferretgirl
10-07-2018, 08:50 PM
Welcome to the newest artists! I have updated but if I could have everyone look over their spots to make sure I have everything appropriately listed; that would be awesome!

Essy
10-07-2018, 10:55 PM
The list looks good! :)

Terri F
10-08-2018, 09:57 AM
Yep....good. :)

JudyLee
10-08-2018, 11:42 AM
Hello! Sorry for the delay- here's my group 6 theme and cards. Still working on my celestial theme deck..... love the cards I have so far!!

ThouArtDelyrias
10-10-2018, 12:56 AM
Donnacr, was wondering if you could give clarification? Are you asking for a grid patterned tangle, or do you want a sampler type? Do I make the card one great grid tangle? Do you want different tangles in each grid?...I don't want to make it wrong. You can pm me if you want or I'll try and search back....;)

ferretgirl

Group 4 theme abstract, please!

trini70
10-15-2018, 07:29 PM
Okay, I'll take a spot in group 8. I haven't done any zentangles in quite a while and the themes already chosen sound fun. For my theme I want "colorful", it can be any zentangle but make it multi-colored. Is that alright?

ferretgirl
10-16-2018, 04:54 AM
KiraCat Group 4 is easy themes & so I think abstract needs to go in the regular themes instead.

karenr
10-16-2018, 06:52 AM
May I join Group 3 with the theme Frida Kahlo please?

ferretgirl
10-16-2018, 02:18 PM
Hi karenr! Sure thing=)

KiraCat
10-16-2018, 06:26 PM
KiraCat Group 4 is easy themes & so I think abstract needs to go in the regular themes instead.

Okay then group 5 is fine.

Anyone else? Am thinking about closing this up pretty soon......

karenr
10-18-2018, 06:21 AM
Anyone else for Group 3? If not, maybe we could join Group 1?

Annie
10-18-2018, 11:25 AM
My theme for group 8

Artists favorite tangles with a touch of their favorite color

Essy
10-18-2018, 03:43 PM
Karenr, that's a good idea :), if others don't sign up.

katelnorth
10-20-2018, 01:05 PM
If there are no more takers for MM/collage, I am happy to make an abstract card for Kiracat if she's ok making me a things with wings card. Also ok to just drop it this time around - guess everyone is just really busy at the moment!

KiraCat

That would be cool with me since I had originally wanted to be in that group anyway :)

ferretgirl
10-21-2018, 07:21 AM
Yeah, we will see how it goes. I was going to sign up for Group 4, too. Not positive, though. Will try to send out some invites some time this weekend.

karenr
10-22-2018, 08:38 PM

ferretgirl
10-22-2018, 10:29 PM
Wykyd, I will get you signed up. Do you have a theme picked out?

ferretgirl
10-22-2018, 10:32 PM
karenr, Yes, you can be signed up for two swaps. I'll put you down for Group 1.

Wykyd

ferretgirl
10-23-2018, 03:02 PM
I don't know a lot of APC players & don't know why we are not getting any collage/mixed media artists to play. Guess people are busy....

ferretgirl
10-23-2018, 03:03 PM
Great, Allegrae, I'll get you down for 5 & 7....

Did you know if you use tracking, that you can get updates via text or email on your package? I like that feature. You have to go the USPS.com website and request updates, but I find it worth it for some packages. So my package should arrive Dec 6th, but you never know with the PO.

JudyLee Gorgeous ATCs have arrived. Thanks for the cool elephant ATC!

We live near an Amish town and there are 2 houses that put signs out every December to sell their homemade fruitcake. Somebody must be buying it! We bought one a couple years back because I thought, maybe it's one of those foods that you can't judge based on some grocery store version. No...we don't like fruitcake.

A raccoon probably would though! It's sweet and has nuts and fruit! Sometime over Christmas I am going to make my personal version of fruitcake that I LOVE - It's a raw apple cake that my grandma used to make. Oh, it is fabulous!

The bear stamps is a set and my friend owns them. I am not sure where she got them.

Ferretgirl, I am due to host the MID DEC PAT, in 2 days, and I really wonder if it a dying breed.

You had many sets not arrive. And past pats are the same.

I have some thoughts on hosting a PAT, I wonder how other hosts feel about it?

I've sent mine over a month ago and they still haven't arrived. I think it must be the season and it takes longer mailing from Europe. Although some other mail I sent to US has arrived in regular time.:huh: I'm hoping they show up.

mwilding

Less participants and each round at least one person doesnt make the deadline. I do love to participate, as a player.

i really enjoy PATS .. i set a date for myself about midway to the deadline to get these finished .. otherwise that date seems to close in .. just my input! these are a little trickier because of the different themes - but that is the beauty of the PATs to me!

dithespy
12-14-2018, 06:53 PM
I usually start thinking about the themes as soon as the groups are complete. Often I find at least one theme challenging and a bit of a puzzle. I like to get both groups completed as soon as possible and mailed in good time. Unfortunately, this time I didn't have the opportunity to get on with them and now I know all about the problem of the mailing system- especially the international mail.

Haagmm
12-14-2018, 06:54 PM
I also enjoy PATs. It's challenging and fun to create something for a specific person. And I'll admit, it's fun to receive a set of my theme that was made just for me.

JudyLee
12-14-2018, 07:10 PM

CastleQueen5

I think mail is much slower in December, and I can see that from the tracking I have on books and packages. Things are not getting delivered by the expected due dates.

dithespy
12-16-2018, 06:17 AM
It's so unpredictable. I sent out my PAT cards a week before I mailed the Cats & Dogs in Hats swap. They are already arriving in their new homes - so where are the PAT cards loitering?

ferretgirl
12-16-2018, 06:54 AM
Well, I live clear across the US, too, so that makes a bit of a difference. Our mail needs to go to Spokane first so if it comes here to Yakima; it then has to be re-routed to Spokane & then sent back to Yakima. Isn't that ridiculous? We think so!!

CastleQueen5
12-16-2018, 11:59 AM
I feel like I live closer to Ferretgirl than some but in reality Washington is very far north and it takes a long time for mail delivery. I am not sure how long it takes from the east coast to the west, but it does take a long time. FEDERAL WAY is stop in the PO line that I see often when I use tracking.

ferretgirl
12-17-2018, 07:48 AM
It does take a long time for mail delivery here. Really? Federal Way is even further out than we are here in Yaki-Vegas as I like to call it.

CastleQueen5
12-17-2018, 11:39 AM
I guess Federal way is some big sorting center, like Bell, California and some place in Jersey that tends to lose mail.

trini70
12-17-2018, 07:54 PM
PATs are typically the only swaps I sign up for. Don't worry, we're not a dying breed. I understand about the snaffoos of international mailing but maybe something can eventually be done about the flakes that don't communicate. Possibly not allow them to play in other swaps until they follow through w/ the PAT? Just thinking out loud. I'll continue to PAT and am anxiously awaiting my returns.
