View Full Version : MNO Coins Swap (Alphabet Series) ~ Due January 23, 2021

11-03-2020, 06:49 PM
Due Date: January 23, 2021
Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
Number of Cards: 3/3
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Media: Any (just make sure they fit into a penny sleeve)

MNO Coins Swap~ Alphabet Series

For this round of coins, you will be making one "M", one "N", and one "O" coin. In return, you will get one of each. The theme of each coin is one letter of the alphabet. You can have one image that represents that letter or a collage of different items for that letter. Each coin should have the letter visible as a focal point. I hope that makes sense.

Swap Requirements:

Coins need to have a diameter of 2.5 inches. If you do not have a 2.5 circle die or punch, please make sure you cut your circles neatly. They do not have to be perfect, but they should not look sloppy.
Original artwork only
3:3 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured) ~ one of each letter (M,N,O)
Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope. I am going to do my best to swap effort for effort.
Please make sure your coins are sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
Each coin needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each coin.


US Participants – Please include a legible SASE.
International Participants - Please include a mailing label with your address clearly written or typed. I will provide an envelope for returns for all international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.
Please make sure to package your coins securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.
When you are ready to send in your coins, please send me a private message for my mailing address (if you need it ~ I'm at the same address that I've been at since joining AFA). Also, please post in the thread when you send in your coins, so I can be on the lookout.
Make sure your coins are mailed in time to be in my hands on or before the due date.

It is always fun and inspiring when artists share their artwork in the thread, so feel free to do so!

When you receive your coins, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received artwork from.

Who's ready for the next swap in the alphabet series?

12-07-2020, 08:31 PM
I'm being lazy :wub:.... the first post is updated with whose cards I've received :jiggy:

12-13-2020, 01:07 AM
Hi all! Just checking it to see how everyone is doing. I've had a lot going on and stupidly decided to take an online course to fulfill one of my annual professional goals. What was I thinking?

I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of my birds from today. It was quite warm today, and the birds enjoyed some free ranging time. They are one of the things that is getting me through this year. I find them incredibly amusing, and I can just pause and watch them for many minutes without stressing about what needs doing.


12-13-2020, 03:45 PM
Jen - are these wild birds? They look like they might be part of the turkey family. I don't know my birds very well - but they are fascinating. Must be fun to watch!

12-14-2020, 11:07 AM
Sign me up!

12-15-2020, 05:42 PM
They’re guinea fowl. We got them to help with tick control. They stay pretty wild. They are trainable, but not really domesticated like chickens. When they free range, they are mostly good about going back to their coop at night. They are usually pretty good about coming when I call (I give out freeze dried meal worms). I can touch a couple of them for a second, if they are busy eating their snack from my hand. They are super loud at times, but so much fun to have around. I’ve never had chickens or any other bird before.

12-15-2020, 06:31 PM
Welcome Carol!

12-27-2020, 07:10 PM
Carol, your envelope arrived yesterday! I haven't opened it yet, but will do so in a bit :)

12-27-2020, 10:43 PM
Prex, I love it that you have wild birds in your yard!

12-28-2020, 01:17 PM
They are fun birds. They haven't spent much time in the yard lately, though. It's a bit cold, and they are preferring to stay in their coop and fenced in area.

12-28-2020, 01:17 PM
BTW, PQR swap is up!

01-04-2021, 08:51 PM
Prex - I mailed my coins today. Thanks!

01-12-2021, 08:18 PM
Hi all! Just checking in. I have a few envelopes in. I just need to sit down at the computer and update. I’ll plan to do that tomorrow.

01-18-2021, 05:50 PM
Hi Prex! Just wondering if my cards made it yet. Thanks!

01-18-2021, 07:55 PM
Yes! They are here. I'm finally catching up on updating. I also have coins from savaranavi :)

01-19-2021, 12:05 AM
Thanks so much for letting me know!

01-23-2021, 07:57 PM
Donna, your coins arrived a couple days ago. Iím going to update the first post eventually, but just wanted to pop on and say all coins are here :)
