View Full Version : Postage stamp ATCs - PERFORMING ARTS Due: Feb 20

Due date: February 20
postage for non-Australians: January 16
I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! Mail is getting back to closer to normal but, with reduced international flights, I would still suggest you allow at least a month, if not 5 weeks.
cards: 3:3 or 6:6
participants: unlimited
media: and and all but MUST include at least 1 postage stamp with some form of the PERFORMING ARTS on it (musicians, dancers, singers, actors)


MAILED FEBRUARY 25

I have LOTS of postage stamps and love using them on my cards so I have decided to run a monthly series of swaps using different topics on the stamps.
short of stamps? Just ask - I have lots on most topics and I am very happy to send them to you. If you need some a little quicker just PM AngelJoy - she is in the US and has lots of postage stamps to share as well

future topics so you can plan ahead:
Mar - Art (artists, pictures of Art - Classical, native, retro, etc) Apr - Sport (playing sport, sports equipment, Olympics, etc) May - Celebrations/emotions June - Space (astronauts, planets, spaceships - real or fictional eg Star Trek, etc) July - Household items/food (chairs, lamps, coffee pots, clocks, jugs, etc)

Please include a background for your stamp(s) - it can be an extension of the stamp design or abstract, or something in between. Plain white backgrounds will be returned unswapped.

Post to the thread to sign up or you can't get Rep points.

PM me for my address when you are ready to mail - if you have an address in Robina, I am still there.

Due date:
Cards are to be in my hand by February 20. I will mail your returns as soon as possible but remember, it took up to a month to reach me so your returns may take a month or more to reach you. Please be on time so others don't have to wait.

Postage:
Australian players: please include a stamp equivalent to your postage
International players: unfortunately Australian international postage has gone up to $3.20 so I must ask of a well hidden US$2 or a Global Forever stamp

ALL players please include a LARGE address label (AT LEAST 2" x2"), I will supply envelopes. Please do NOT send those 3-in-a-row sleeves - they do not fit in my envelopes.

1. Do your best work - I plan to swap effort-for-effort as much as I can.

2. Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards (so you can get fun Rep points) and on the back of your mailing envelope. I am running a few swaps and do not want to put you with the wrong returns.

3. Please mail early to allow time to reach Australia.

4. An extra card for the swap Host is greatly appreciated but is not required.

5. Embellishments are fine. The completed card needs to fit into a standard pocket and the embellishments need to be securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping. If it is too bulky it is more than likely that the card will not reach me - either because the envelope has been torn and the card lost, or it is too heavy.

6. Have fun!

7. I will give iTrader feedback when I receive your cards and will also update this post showing that your cards have been received. In return I encourage you to give iTrader Host feedback to me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points to the artists whose cards you receive. After all, knowing where your cards went is half the fun I think.

Finished up my cards so I can mail extra early. The advance notice for the upcoming months was really helpful. I already had the stamps I wanted to use pulled out thanks to you.

Thank you for hosting these wonderful swaps. I liked this one, because it gave me a great opportunity to learn something about the artists.

Betsyg,
These are AWESOME cards,
I did not recognize Fannie Brice, so I did some research.
Interesting that I recognize the other comedy teams you created atcs about, but not Fannie Brice, and I have discovered that they are all contemporaries! :twitcy:

Oh well, live and learn......one of the GREAT things about being part of ATCs, I learn something new every day!!!! :jiggy:


Reinikka,
LOVE your Macbeth with the Witches stamp

Betsyg
01-04-2021, 04:58 PM
That set of stamps also included Jack Benny. I don’t think Fanny Brice did movies the way the others did, she mostly did live stand up.

Betsyg
01-04-2021, 05:02 PM
OK, I’m wrong, she sang too. Funny Girl is about her.

welcome to all those who have joined while I was visiting children and grandchildren - I have noted choices and mailings.

artbymee and plumhill2001 - your gorgeous cards arrived while I was away.

Donnacr
01-19-2021, 12:39 AM
Don't forget - my suggested mailing date was LAST weekend.

Most of you have told me that your cards are on their way - don't be late for the others.

Haagmm
01-22-2021, 12:04 AM
Donna - Unfortunately I need to withdraw from this one. I have not gotten into the art room to create and I'm already past the recommended mail deadline. I'll save myself from stressing and just focus on the next ones.

Donnacr
01-22-2021, 12:27 AM
haagmm - you will be missed but I understand, you are withdrawn. See you in the next one.

betsyg and Reinikka - your gorgeous cards have arrived.

Donnacr
01-22-2021, 12:54 AM

I thought my husband was joking when he said that he was glad he was lifting weights at the gym as there was so much mail today but cards were received from: vickiZ, AngelJoy, seascape131, carolynsn and jo.on.the.go.

Donnacr
02-15-2021, 07:11 PM
pithier - your gorgeous cards have arrived. Thank you for taking my request for a LARGE label so literally.

Fandanie - I am getting very worried about your cards, they have been on their way for nearly a month now. . .

I will be out of contact from Thursday to Monday as I am driving to a craft retreat - hopefully they will arrive while I am away. Otherwise I will swap everything and mail your returns the following weekend.

pithier
