Oh I really want to do this, but I must lurk for the moment due to hubby's situation. I love paper dolls and had a blast with Halloween ones so Winter dolls would be fab. And good luck with this first swap. I'm sure it'll be a huge hit!!!

Loving all of these utterly creative, detailed designs so far! If any of you have an ATC friend you think would like to join the swap, we do still have a few spots left. Feel free to invite. I've sent out some invites with no responses so far, so it's fair game. :-)

awesome swap. Lurking. I see if I can make something first, as my time is so limited lately. If I do I will join.

12-01-2021, 01:10 PM
227259 Now I'm worried that they're too big!?!?

12-01-2021, 09:28 PM
So sorry to do this, but I need to withdraw. Ugh. Just too many "life issues" to contend with. Glorious dolls, all. ZZ...that Krampus...I was totally going to go the way of Krampus. N.I.Kansas, size or not, they are beautiful.

I will keep lurking around to see all the great art. :D

12-01-2021, 10:17 PM
No! Send em along! I'm not sitting here with my ruler by the mailbox or anything. :-)

12-01-2021, 10:18 PM
@nanner, thanks for letting me know. No problem. If you get free time and things change in the next few weeks, just let me know.

12-04-2021, 01:02 AM

12-05-2021, 12:28 PM
I am loving seeing everyone's dolls! Here are mine , they were mailed some time ago so hopefully they will find your mailbox this week!


12-05-2021, 02:34 PM
Thanks! To everyone who has shipped out so far, I'm checking my mailbox every day with baited breathe. I'll be sure to post updates as soon as I have new pretties in-hand!

12-05-2021, 08:32 PM
mailing tomorrow.

12-08-2021, 02:33 PM
Such adorable cards and so festive, each and every one. I wish I could have joined, but there's so much to deal with and I'm overwhelmed. I hope there will be more paper doll (with or without wings) swaps coming up. I do love making them.

12-09-2021, 04:53 PM
Have my paper dolls arrived yet? It's been over a week since they were mailed!

12-09-2021, 07:35 PM
I sure hope the mail co-operates....

12-09-2021, 07:41 PM
oh gee...I mailed last Saturday...hoping they get there!

TF Balding
12-10-2021, 01:22 AM
I forgot to mention that i had mailed mine, but my tracking number says they were delivered today so *sigh of relief* :laugh:

12-10-2021, 02:28 AM
I just got cards from TF Balding, artjunkie and Zhouzhou today! All knock-out cards. Thank you!

12-10-2021, 08:37 PM
Mine are complete but I will not be able to have them in the mail to you on time. I'm so sorry. I will have to withdraw.

12-13-2021, 04:46 PM
If everyone doesn't mind waiting a little longer, I'd really like for you to still ship them!

12-13-2021, 10:19 PM
if everyone is okay with that, ill have them in the mail to you tomorrow.

12-14-2021, 10:53 AM
I'm good with it ......especially since it doesn't look like mine made it on time either!��

12-14-2021, 11:18 AM
Of course.

12-14-2021, 12:55 PM
notinkansas, yours arrived in the mail I collected this morning!

12-14-2021, 06:15 PM
No problem here!

12-15-2021, 06:06 AM
thanks everyone! Here they are. they are on their way to you.

12-15-2021, 08:49 PM
I think Amy's fairy is going on a tropical vaca with that yummy looking drink in hand. So sweet.

I've named her Elf Off Season.

12-21-2021, 11:06 AM
Last set of cards received! I'll be swapping and sending out, submitting iTrader tomorrow. Thank you so much to everyone for making my first swap host experience so nice.

12-22-2021, 02:54 PM
I've swapped out and begun to leave iTrader...which leads me to seeing that lazyshadow's dolls have never arrived!!!
Given that they shipped two full weeks ago, I feel like they would have arrived by now. What are the chances you shipped with any tracking? I hope these little friends are not lost.

12-31-2021, 06:40 PM
Everyone! Happy New Year's Eve and thanks again for playing. I felt a little clunky being a host the first time, so thank everyone for patience. Your cards got swapped and mailed earlier this week for everyone.

Lo' and behold my mailbox contained the most beautiful envelope I've see in my life with your dolls inside today, Lazyshadows!
I'll be sending returns to you, soon, LS.

01-01-2022, 05:39 PM
luckycat, you did a fine job of hosting +++++

01-02-2022, 02:46 PM
Yes you did luckycat! Now that the first one is almost behind you, it'll get easier next time!

01-03-2022, 02:39 PM
Woo hoo
Today I received great returns from ZhouZhou, notinkansas and theweavershand.
Now to go leave credits.

01-06-2022, 11:51 PM
I finally made it to the post office to find the most beautiful returns I think I've ever received! Thanks so much for hosting luckycat479!

Thanks so much to wildholly, zhouzhou and art_junkie for the glorious dolls! I am honored to have them in my collection!

01-08-2022, 05:50 PM
My dolls came yesterday! They are all so adorable! This was a great swap!

01-11-2022, 08:42 PM
oh my darlings came today, they are wonderful
