View Full Version : ATC Envie Swap - due 5/20/09

03-14-2009, 02:00 PM

Due Date: May 20, 2009
3 Envies ( made by you )

This is a swap we hadn't had in awhile so I thought it would be fun to host one.
For this swap you will make 3 Envies. They must be large enough to hold a 2.5 x 3.5 Artist Trading Card. Decorated anyway you wish.

Rules for this swap:
You must post to this thread to sign up, when you mail in your envies and when you receive.

When your Returns are received don't forget an important fact - Itraders should only be left for the hostess ( me ) and rep points left for those whose envies you received - no itraders for those!

All USA and INTERNATIONAL players *** do not send a Envie or Address Label for your returns ( I will provide the Return Envies ) Do pm me your address when you sign up and I will pm you my address.

These Envies should not be extra thick ( this makes for more postage to return ).

There is a due date of May 20, 2009 - they must arrive at my house by the due date so be sure you mail on time. I will only wait 3 days for late returns, any arriving later than that will be returned to the players.

USA PLAYERS - please send .62 cents loose postage.
INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS - I will pay for your postage. ( Extra goodies or USA postage is great but not necessary )
Kaisaj - received returns
Nelleke - received returns
Patti M - received returns
Zanylady - recieved returns
Rooskie - received returns
ATClover - received returns
Nancy L - received returns
Robin - received returns
FantasyFirebird - received returns
Icequeen07 - received returns

and that's putting it mildly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had to go into work early today and asked elder son (25) to post 2 letters for me - one to canada for Pixel inchie swop and 1 to USA for Robin envie swop. Now he has previously managed this with no problem taking the letters to the post office and saving me having to get a parking space and queue at the post office.
So when I came home I saw the letters had gone so thought goodly!!
Now elder son works as a chef and so is on a split shift, there he was asleep in the chair so I asked him if he was ready for a lift back to work. Eventually I got a reply that he wasn't in work. After a brief interrogation I found that he had received a phone call telling him his day off was today!!
So I asked "where did you post the cards?" "In the post box" was the reply!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So at this moment mum goes off like a can of pop!! "But there were no bleeping stamps on them and they were for canada and america you blithering idiot!!" "Well I asked Robin (younger son 21) and he said they had stamps on them." Pillock - they had air mail stamps on!!

So now I have aprox 20 inchies plus numerous envies floating around in the uk postal system. Whether they will make it to their destinations is anyones guess, but if they get there God only knows what the charge will be!!
Has anyone else got idiots like these pair in their homes? and if not would they like these??

So Robin - if they arrive let me know what I owe you and I am really really sorry, if they don't arrive in time can you withdraw me from the swop?

04-24-2009, 02:11 PM
Oh My Fantasy! I don't have idiots like that in my home but I do my husbands family~
What can we do? we can't shoot them LOL..

It is okay~ Please don't worrry about it~ They are not due for awhile so they should make it in time.

I will let you know when they arrive~

04-30-2009, 09:53 AM
* Just a reminder that these are due at my house by May 20th~

fantasy firebird
04-30-2009, 02:32 PM
the envelope that was for canada arrived the other day with Pixel and there was no charge incurred!! So we sit and we wait LOL

05-01-2009, 03:38 PM
Miss Robin, I mailed your envelope for my mom. I put in two stamps and hope I did it right. Mom has been so worried about her art getting to people so I have been mailing things for her. Sorry if I messed up.

05-01-2009, 05:31 PM
You did fine~ Tell here we miss her and love her and hope she will be back with us soon~
When It arrives I will leave her itrader and then you and her will know it is here safely~

Fantasyfirebird - Yours arrived today~ not problems and they are all great and thanks so much for the extras~

05-07-2009, 12:56 PM
These are due at my house on or before May 20th!
Better hurry!

05-08-2009, 03:06 AM

First of all, many many "THANK YOU's" to all who prayed for my Dad and our family through his medical crisis. His heart failed him several times during his hospital stay (of nearly a month) but they finally were able to stabilize his heartbeat and lessen his need for the defibrillator. Now he is in his second round of chemotherapy and dealing with all the side effects of that treatment. But at least he is at home. He has six months of chemo to go through so please, continue to pray for him to go into remission. I finally feel comfortable with his condition to be able to come home to SC. I am sorry that I did not make it in time to fulfill my swap commitment but, since I already finished my pieces before I left, I will just hang on to them until the next swap. Or perhaps put them in the gallery for private trades. Anyway, thank you for your patience and all your artwork is beautiful. I'm sorry that I won't be the recipient of any of them. 'Til later,

Berkeley Elisabeth

05-27-2009, 03:54 PM
We completly understand and many prayers and hugs to you and your Dad and family~

05-27-2009, 11:47 PM
CSChef...I'm praying for you, your dad, and your family! Such a difficult time. I lost my dad to cancer when I was 17. 11 years later, I still miss him. I'm sure your father appreciates all you have done for him during this time.

On another note...I received tiny envies from atclover, JAD, and PattiM! Thanks Robing for hosting!!! You rock!!!:jiggy:

05-28-2009, 01:55 AM
cschef,we will continue to keep you and your dad in prayers, God will continue you lift you up and encourage you,thank you for asking us to pray for your family!
