    Grandparents Swap, Due Mar 14th

    Swap Due Date - 3/14/08
    Signup/withdraw date - 3/1/08
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - Unlimited



    Special thanks to “Miss” for suggesting this idea!





    In this swap, we will honor our grandparents. Create three cards that honor one or more of your grandparents – or people who were like grandparents to you. Feel free to show the name of your grandparent on the front or back of the card, and to provide a little information about him/her, if you’d like. Your cards can be the same, or different.





    Due Date:
    Cards are due in my hands by March 14th. This will be an on time swap. I will mail your return cards on the due date! NOTE: Late-arriving cards will be held for 1 week past the due date, swapped with other late cards, and then sent back out. (If there are not enough late arrivals, late folks may get some or all of their own cards back!)




    Postage:
    USA participants, please enclose 58-cents postage on your return envelope. If your envelope contains only 41-cents postage, I will be limited to sending you back very simple cards with no embellishments. Our new postal rates require 58-cents if the envelope is slightly thicker, slightly heavier, or requires hand cancelling (and if it’s both thicker AND heavier, it costs 75-cents). So affix your return postage accordingly.

    International participants, I will pay return postage. An extra ATC of the swap theme would be greatly appreciated, but is not required.




    Updates:
    I will update THIS post (the first post in this thread) to inform you of the status of our swap. So check back HERE for updates. (You won’t have to read through pages and pages of posts or scroll to the end to get current information!)




    Swap Rules:

    1. Send your BEST cards – cards that demonstrate your best workmanship, and that you are proud to share with others.

    2. Clearly write your USERNAME and SWAP NAME in these 3 places:
    * On the back of all your cards
    * On the front of your mailing envelope
    * On the front of your return envelope

    3. Enclose a return label or self-addressed envelope. Inside the USA, include 58-cents postage. Outside the USA, I’ll pay return postage.

    4. If you’re mailing from outside the USA, please mark “AIRMAIL” and mail early to allow extra time for delivery to the USA (I recommend allowing 3 extra weeks for delivery from outside the USA).

    5. An extra ATC for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated, but not required.

    6. 3-D embellishments are fine, as long as the completed cards slide into standard 9-pocket pages, and as long as the embellishments are securely mounted so they don’t fall off during shipping. (Keep in mind that thick cards may require a padded mailing envelope and additional postage).

    7. When you sign up for this swap, I will PM you my address and a reminder of the swap details.

    8. I will give iTrader feedback the same day I receive your cards, and will also update this post showing that your cards have arrived. In return, I encourage you to give iTrader host feedback for me when you receive your swap returns, and Reputation Points for the artists whose cards you receive. (If you need instructions on how to leave iTrader or Reputation Points, let me know and I’ll send you step-by-step instructions).

    9. With most of my swaps, I hand make a custom card for each swap participant, so I can trade one of your cards with one of mine. (I will give you a "Reputation Point" for the card I keep). If you would rather that I NOT trade one of yours for one of mine, please let me know that when you send your cards, and then I will make sure that your 3 cards go to others, and that your 3 returns come from others.

    Rob - I leave it up to each person. Digitals are fine by me, as long as they're nicely done and printed (which I'm sure they would be).

    whew...I feel like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz! <g> I I've been couch bound for the past week and had no idea the tornado came and swept everything up. Imagine my surprise when I heard the news, found this site, registered and saw this swap that peeked my interet - gee wonder why. I am died when I opened the link and saw my user name already there as a particiant! LOL I loved it!!!

    So, yes I'm here and will be starting grampie and grammie just a soon as I'm released from the couch (hopefully the end of this week if not the first of next week) and I do'nt have to sneek back here to read email in the middle of the night. The only problem is the damn dogs always give me away! LOL

    I joined this morning. I am a total novice as far as the procedures, so please give me corrective feedback. For example, I don't see your address?

    I'm excited about The Grandparents Swap and would like to join. I started my cards last night.

    Kathy (Kjyoyo) - I'm sure that WOULD be quite a shock to find out all that happened while you were couch bound! I'm glad you found your way here, and that you're back in the swap again.

    Kat - welcome! I sent you a confirmation and added your name to the list.

    I'm going to move this to Active Swaps since your sign-up deadline is passed.
