View Full Version : ATCoins: Sun, Moon & Stars Due April 6, 2019

ALL RETURNS WERE MAILED TUESDAY 9 APRIL 2019 from Maryland

Swap due date: 6 April 2019 (cards must arrive by this date, see below)
Number of participants: Unlimited
Cards: 3 for 3
Media: open, but cannot guarantee to swap like for like

Really enjoyed my last AT Coin swap, so thought I'd do another, taking advantage of the fact that I'm visiting my mother in the US for a week in April, so return postage will cost me nearly nothing (for a change!).

Cards for this swap can be in the artist's choice of media, but must include a sun,
moon and/or star(s). You do not have to use all three items - e.g. you may make 3 sun cards or 2 cards with moons and 1 with stars or one card with each or all three cards can have a mix of the three items or whatever - the choice is yours as long as each coin features at least one of the three things.

Swap requirements:




your three coins must be original, though they may be similar
please try to keep cards flat and light, or enclose extra postage for bulkier cards
please sign up by posting in this thread
All ATCoins must be a precisely cut or punched circle that is 2.5” in diameter and they must be on sturdy cardstock

Each completed ATCoin should be in an individual plastic sleeve
Please include your forum username on the back of each card - I really like it when people include their real names and locations as well, but it's not a requirement
Players are encouraged to post photos of their cards in the thread, though again, it's not a requirement. We like to see what you are doing!
Please do your best work, and make coins of a quality that you would like to receive
A hostess card is never required, but always appreciated


Postage requirements:




I am in the UK, so be sure to leave plenty of time to mail your coins to me (However, I will mail the returns to US players FROM THE US, so I can take American stamps from US players this time around.)
All players please enclose a decent-sized address label (or paper with your address neatly written) or SAE
UK players, a 1st or 2nd class stamp should be sufficient
Players in the US: a single forever stamp (US, not international) should be sufficient to cover return postage unless cards are bulky, in which case, an extra ounce stamp for each bulky card would be appreciated. You may send the stamp loose with your address label, or send a SASE.
Rest of world players: I'll cover your postage on this one.


Please make a note that I am on holiday in the US from the 8th of April for about a week, so cards really do need to be with me by the 6th. Anything arriving after that date can't be swapped out and will be returned once I return from holiday.

So... who wants to play?

CQ and BSH, lurkers are fine - and there's no problem if you sign up and have to withdraw, it's just nice to know how many sets of cards I'm expecting... As long as cards arrive by the time I leave the UK, you can sign up pretty late in the swap...

CreativeMelodia and silky1150, welcome!

I am so sorry but I must withdraw :cry: My cards are ready but there is no way that they will reach you in London before April 6 - I had this swap marked as due April 16 :embarrassed:
As they won't be part of this swap my cards are now available for private trade :( The little stars on my 1st and 3rd cards are really clear confetti, not the pink that my scanner has made them.

I’m not sure who to send my atcoins to or how to get their address. Can someone message me how?

The person who starts a post / swap is who you send your cards to. Go to the very first post of the thread and click on the posters name; select Private Message. Then you can request the address for the swap in an email.

katelnorth
03-30-2019, 10:54 AM
Nice cards, Strivaria - hopefully they'll make it in time. If not, I'll let you know and we'll sort it out after I return from the US (I might have one coin of my own to swap, and there's also a possibility if HeatherMc is sending her cards late that hers might not get here in time either which could leave a little mini swap if need be...)

Hey there how are you! Please let me know if you do a mini swap- I have coins made as well but not done in time to get across the pond.

So... here are the cards all laid out and ready to swap. A nice sized swap to sort out - much easier than my recent Foreign Text Background swap, where I had about 30 sets of cards!

Interestingly, although some people did all one (sun, moon, stars) and others did one of each, or some other combination, the total numbers of different cards were fairly evenly split, so I did my best to give each person a sun card, a moon card and a card with stars. Some of the cards had two or three of the items on them, as well!

The envelopes are all packaged up now and ready to mail once I get to the US and get my suitcase through customs - they should go in the postbox (mailbox, I guess, as it's the US!) on Monday afternoon or Tuesday.

HeatherMc, unfortunately, your cards did not arrive in time to swap out. They were the only ones in the end, so I will probably just return them to you for you to list in your gallery for private swapping, but I'll be in touch once I return and have your cards in hand.

First stop in my errands today was this postbox, where I mailed off all the swap returns - so, they are on the way and should be with you soon.

Given how long post seems to take between the US and Canada, I probably should have mailed the two Canadian ones from the UK, but I didn't think about that until I was here, lol.

Received my coins today....stars from Kynara, a moon from Ducky, and a sun/moon from Suzi. the site is not allowing me to give rep points to Ducky and Suzi. But I do appreciate their art. thanks for hosting a coin swap.

Glad to see that so many people have received their returns.

I am back home in the UK now, and HeatherMc, your cards are not at my house waiting. I'll let you know when/if they show up and arrange to return them to you.
