Due Date: December 20, 2021

Monochromatic Orange Artist Trading Coins &/or Twinchies
This is the 6th in a monochrome series. I will post a new color each month. I’m going to do both shapes since some are partial to coins but some love the variety. When you sign up please let me know if you are planning on doing coins, twinchies or both!

Upcoming Colors include:
Monochrome White / Silver Twinchies or Coins - January
Monochrome Yellow / Gold Twinchies or Coins - February
Monochrome Red Twinchies or Coins - March
This round your artwork needs to be mostly Orange. There can be minimal amounts of other colors.

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.
Twinchies need to be 2 inches by 2 inches square. Please make sure to cut your squares neatly.
Original artwork only
3:3 (hostess gifts are never a requirement, but would be treasured)
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 artwork is sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
Each piece needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each piece.
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 international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.
Please make sure to package your artwork securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.
If you are sending both coins and twinchies, please have the post office weigh your envelope to make sure you have enough postage or mail them separately, especially if they have embellishments.
When you are ready to send in your pieces, please send me a private message for my mailing address (I did move last year so don’t use a saved address unless you verify). Also, please post in the thread when you send your envelope, so I can be on the lookout.
Make sure your pieces 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 please do!
Feel free to comment on coins or twinchies that you like in the thread. It makes my job as host easier if I can give you something that I know you’ll love.

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

Here are mine. Twinchies are all similar with different words - and they ARE orange! The scan tweaked them and they look red.

BlueAngel - I did receive your coins last week. I did iTrader but forgot to post here.
There is 1 week remaining in this swap!

I have received all of the orange artwork and will be swapping out tonight. I'll let you know when they go into the mail. Thanks for playing and I hope to see you all in white/silver!!

Once again - so much wonderful Orange artwork!! I didn’t get a pic of everything laid out on the table this round. Plus there was neighbor gift stuff all around the edges! :eek: Everyone’s envelopes will go out this morning after being weighed and properly postaged. (Is that a word?)
I had a good time yesterday playing with a new bottle of gold ink. Each you you will get a square of homemade swirly metallic gold paper.

12-25-2021, 05:48 PM
Returns went out on the 23rd so you all should begin receiving them next week. I hope you like what you get. Please post to the thread when you get your envelope.
