    I think you'll do just fine hosting this one. There's plenty of time for people to sign up.

    Might as well sign me up for this too, since I am doing the other Halloween swaps you are hosting. Plus it's my favorite holiday.

    Annie welcome!

    Mwilding - the measure nuts are on the first thread, they are size 1" X 2 3/4" you decorate those just as you would Twinchies, Inchies and even ATCs just smaller. Make sure they are the correct size. Do you want to sign up?

    I'm going to lurk and see if I can get cards done first then sign up. I really like moos. But, I've always done them as an ATC cut in half lengthwise which makes them 1 1/4 inch- ish. Should I slice them narrower to make them 1 inch for you swap. I guess I should. Perhaps I will just cut a new batch.

    I just mentioned this swap over on Rosecake's moo houses swap thread. We are all basically just waiting for returns at this point in that swap. I figured maybe some moo fans there would be interested in this swap as well.

    Moos are basically little narrow cards. They were created and made popular by business card maker moo.com. This company's name is "Moo" and they call the business cards they print "Moos". Moo.com calls the "moo" of the size we are going to use here "MiniMoos" or "MiniCards". https://www.moo.com/us/products/minicards.html . They are the size of a business card sliced in half lengthwise. Moo.com marketed these cards to the more modern and artsy customer, allowing a different picture on each card in a package. Here at AFA, we use the approximate size of the MiniMoo card to make our own little art cards that we simply call "moos". You can cut the size from the same types of card stock or watercolor paper as you would for ATCs and then art them up similarly to an ATC. (Use the size that Robin has indicated, not the size moo.com uses)
