Welcome to the 2022 Mid-NOV PAT!

Please read ALL below.
Do your best to follow all guidelines.
Ask questions if need be.

PAT Guidelines:
1. In order to participate in this PAT, you must:
-Have an established iTrader rating of +15.
-Have received no negatives within the past 6 months.
-Have received no neutrals within the past 3 months.
2. Themes must be chosen within 48 hours of joining the swap. This means you can join a group, but think about your theme for 2 days.
3. You may only join one group for this PAT.
4. Each card must be the standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and on sturdy paper.
5. Each card must be original and unique. Send cards you’d be happy to receive! No white backgrounds. No stickers. No bulky embellishments.
6. You must follow the themes requested by your group participants exactly. Theme is the main focus of a PAT, so no deviations from theme requests are allowed. If a player requests a green cat and a blue one is submitted, it will be returned. If you have questions, ask in the thread or via a PM.
7. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve. (6 inchies can go in 1 sleeve.)
8. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, your location, group number, and recipient name.

Mailing Info:
1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
2. Please use washi tape to secure your set.
3. You may send a SASE, or an address label and postage. Either is fine.
4. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp is due.
5. If you are mailing internationally, please provide either 1 Global U.S. Forever stamp or 1 well-concealed $1 bill.
6. When you are ready to mail your cards, please private message me for my address. If you have it, it has not changed.
7. A host card would be greatly appreciated and loved, but is not required.
8. Please write your username and group number on the back of your envelope(s). It helps me organize!
9. Remember that feedback is different in a PAT. You do not leave Rep/ You Rock points. Leave iTraders for me + the other artists in your group!! It is a trade. PM if you have any questions on this.

A Final Note:
I will not wait for your cards. This is a stern on-time PAT. Late cards will be returned. You run the risk of Neutral or Negative iTraders from your group members.

Can I get group 3

jezebelle
11-13-2022, 07:28 PM
Another question for group 6… is it 6 inchies for each person in your group?

locatray
11-13-2022, 07:35 PM
JuJu and Monroy28 - you're singed up.
Yes, inchies are 6:6. Good question.
jez - would LOVE to have you play.

Juju
11-13-2022, 07:36 PM
Thank you! Will get back to you soon!

jezebelle
11-13-2022, 07:43 PM
Well I’m fixing to make 24 inchies then!
- jumps up and down excitedly -
Please sign me up!
I’m torn between two themes tho, so I’ll get back to you on that.

Inchies!

jezebelle
11-13-2022, 08:18 PM
and… I have more questions. (sorry)

Do the following PAT Guidelines apply to inchies as well?

7. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve.
- my preferred method for shipping inchies is to make a small folder for a group of six, or washi tape six inchies to 1 “card” and put that in a sleeve. I know there are other great ways to protect and ship inchies as well (shout out to Robin). There’s even a thread about shipping inchies around here somewhere.

8. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, your location, group number, and recipient name.
- this one seems a bit much for the back of one/each inchie.

locatray
11-13-2022, 08:21 PM
So.... Please place 6 inchies for each player in 1 penny sleeve.
On the back, put mid-NOV PAT with your username, that's it. Easy peasy.

ANNNDDDD, don't be sorry, Here to host!

11-15-2022, 02:05 AM
Hi Juju,

You are player 1 since you were the first one to sign up for the group. And you want to list which card you want each person to make for you (for example, catladybj is player two, so she would make you a cat APC on the Queen of Hearts and Suzi, who is player 3 would make you a J of Spades, etc). By telling us which card you want us to make the cat APC on, you will be sure to receive different cards. Since there are four people making cards, I like to do all of one number and have each player do a different suit so that in the end, I have a full set of 7's (or whatever number I choose)

Ancient Planter
11-15-2022, 02:41 AM

trini70

I'll take group 7 with a theme of Nativity Scene. I like the idea of a holiday themed group. Great idea! Hopefully others will think so too and join in also.

I think this may be the first PAT I’ve looked at. I’m not ready to join, I just want to make sure I understand the concept in case I decide to try one in the future: We pick a group to join, state a theme/subject we’d like to receive on our trades, and make a card for each of the players in our group per their individual themes. Rather than making 3 or 6 cards all of the same theme, we’d make, say 5 cards, each on a different theme. So it’s like doing a handful of mini commissioned pieces. Or am I completely misunderstanding how this works? :)

Monroy28 + miss - I adore ya both and want you to play, but Grp 3 is full. Please take a look at other groups!

Oops, I missed BArox's post. But Monroy is already part of the group-- you have her listed as person #1. She just came back with her theme.

Yep. That is how it works. If you get into a group of 5, you make 4 cards, one for each of the other participants in their chosen theme. Because you make the cards for each of them and they will make cards just for you, you can’t withdraw from the swap, regardless of reason. You also give iTraders to each of them instead of rep points. You also give an iTrader to the host, as usual.

My theme is night.

JavaZarf
11-18-2022, 01:01 PM
I have been lurking, torn between found poetry and inchies.
I have finally decided on inchies because I want to try to make an inch size houses.
For theme - if i can have the same theme as another player, I would want to receive inchie houses.
If i need to pick a different theme, I would pick cat.

jezebelle
11-18-2022, 02:33 PM
Yay, JavaZ! I was beginning to think Robin and I would be playing all by ourselves.
I hope you can also have houses, I would love to make some for you.

I spy locatray in the inchie lineup now too!

jezebelle
11-18-2022, 06:28 PM
locatray, in regard to your yellow inchies… Are outlines/accents in other colors acceptable? Or should they be entirely monochromatic?

locatray
11-19-2022, 05:54 PM
I am not picky - You take that yellow theme where ever you want!

Juju
11-20-2022, 12:00 AM

The suits you placed are not the ones i chose. And last card I hadn't chosen. It should be a 10 of ♥.

Sorry for the confusion

fundygirl
11-21-2022, 02:45 AM
One more question, Juju: I am player 4, but you didn't list a card for player 4, so which card am I making for you?

locatray
11-21-2022, 02:09 PM
JuJu - You are player 1, not player 4. I am still confused.

I am going to remove all and I would kindly ask you to re-type your final requests without copy/ paste of an old one.

Thank you.

Juju
11-21-2022, 06:07 PM

Thanks for the invite, but I'm going to pass this time. It looks intriguing, if perhaps a little complicated? Not sure I get it really. Will do some reading up and perhaps join in another one after I retire at the end of the year.

It is dark and rainy today so my photo does not convey some of the nuances, particularly in the backgrounds. But I’m eager to share my first completed set for Group 6: Inchies! - anything yellow (locatray). I will post a better pic to the gallery when I am able.

These birds were very challenging and super fun. I’m pretty sure there are more birds in my future.

I love birds, Jez! Those inchies are awesome-- Thank you! I love how they look like a set all together.

jezebelle
11-30-2022, 02:13 PM
I think I love birds now too!
I’m so pleased that you like them.
And I’m excited to begin my next set of inchies. We could still use one more player. Inchies anyone???

12-04-2022, 09:25 AM
I still can't figure how this works. Lots of new concepts in the forum that I am trying to get.

trini70
12-04-2022, 10:55 AM
Margia, each person in the group makes a card for everyone else in the group using their chosen subject. So when you're done you've made four different themed cards and will receive four cards all w/ your one theme. It'll be a while before you can play in a PAT (Pick A Theme) swap though. The rules are more particular than in other swaps.

Glad this is moving along. I haven't started any of my cards. Very frustrating to have taken the all the covid vaccinations and then to get really sick with it! I've had to postpone my trip to Texas to be with my mom as well. But I'm on the mend and hopefully by next week I'll be able to start working on stuff.
Boy I tell you what as much as I didn't/don't want my mom to be sick I sure would have liked to have been under her care this past week and a half! Five adults in my house, three generations, and every last one of us got it. So it was pretty much fend for yourself!
Fingers crossed I'll have some negative tests so that I can get on that plane Saturday!!!
Y'all stay Well!!!

It looks like it's going to be just you and me for this holiday themed group this year, Katrina. It would be great if someone others would join too.


I'll take group 7 with a theme of Nativity Scene. I like the idea of a holiday themed group. Great idea! Hopefully others will think so too and join in also.

Robin

I guess Group 6 is complete unless someone signs up by the 15th? I am finished with all my Inchies for the players.

catladybj
12-11-2022, 11:41 PM
locatray, maybe if since some of the groups are still low you can let somebody else that's already signed up sign up in one of your other groups to help fill them out a little bit, even though you stated only one group per person, I think everybody would be fine with that. I don't know if it goes against the rules once you have set it up, but you could check with Carol.

locatray
12-12-2022, 10:29 AM
Ok, let's do it. If you're already a current player in this PAT, you may sign up for a 2nd group. Let's fill this up!

jezebelle

I have been thinking the same thing catladybj . Thanks for making this suggestion. And thank you locatray, for opening it up. I want to finish my inchies first. If I get them completed in good time, I have my eye on a second group.

CiCiCreates
01-04-2023, 10:28 PM
My Christmas dress for Desert Artist in Group 7 was based on a real dress Mom made for me when I was about 7. Much, much later, I made a quilt for her (she has since passed on) with little appliques of dresses she made for my sister and I, and our Christmas dresses are on it. There is a close-up of them, mine was red taffeta and my sister's was royal blue taffeta. The ATC card for Desert is based on the real dress.
