    Talking Crabs & other Crustaceans - OPEN MEDIA - Oct 20

    Swap Due Date - October 20, 2017
    Signup/withdraw date - None, just COMMUNICATE
    Number of Cards - 3:3 , 6:6
    Number of participants - UNLIMITED
    Medium -Open Media.
    Theme - emphasis on CRABS, but all crustaceans are welcome




    (^^one of my babies, Cocoa,
    a purple pincher hermit)

    The focus of this swap is crabs and other Crustaceans. They can be any style - realistic, whimsical, zetti, kawaii, etc., as long as they are recognizable as a crustacean. Please nothing abstract. Please NO SEAFOOD -
    I want living crustaceans! This swap is open to all mediums - hand drawn / painted, mixed media, collage, sewn, crochet, etc. I am open to accepting digital or photography as well, providing that you post your cards to the forum first for my approval, and it MUST be your original work. I encourage you post the cards to the thread - Everyone loves eye candy and it helps me to know if your cards are acceptable before you send them, as well, or if you are in doubt. Please only send cards you would be proud to receive and if you have any questions please feel free to ask me.

    RULES / REQUIREMENTS (Please read)

    *Please include on the back of your atc your name, AFA username, date and swap details.

    *Please include appropriate return postage. If they take more than one stamp to send, please include the same amount to return.

    * Best work only please. I try my best to swap effort for effort. Please only send in art you'd be happy to receive

    * Please sign up by posting to this thread ONLY, NOT through a PM

    * No problem if you have to drop out, but please let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader... I HATE to do this, but it's only fair to the participants who DO turn in cards on time.

    * Each card should be sent in its own plastic sleeve. I CANNOT stress this enough.

    * Please include username, real name, and swap name on the back of your cards. We can't leave Rep Points if we don't know who you are.

    * Please make sure to package your cards to where they arrive safely and undamaged. You would not believe the number of envelopes I have received with sides or tops torn (and this is in individual trades!)

    * Please send a self-addressed stamped envelope with your name and address CLEARLY typed or written on.

    * USA participants - Please send the same number of stamps to me that it takes to mail your cards. INTERNATIONAL participants - I can accept paypal ($2) or (3) unused US postage stamps or ($2) well concealed US dollars. Please let me know when you are mailing them what method you will be using to pay for return shipping.

    * If you must send a LARGE envelope, please include accurate return postage.

    * Please allow enough time for your cards to get to me. I plan to swap on time. If cards are not in my hands by October 20, they will be returned to you, using your stamped envelope. I am in TN. If you are in doubt of how long it will take you to get your cards to me, I advise to mail at least 14 days ahead of time.

    * Please send me a PM when you need my address.

    * Host cards are not required, but definitely appreciated.

    ****MOST IMPORTANTLY - Have fun!

    I've never drawn crabs before I think it might be cool.... let me get done with my other work and I might join. Lurking for right now.
    Still trying to get use to interwebs.
    If I upset/offend anyone in anyway please let me know, I'm horrible at social protocol and struggle with human interactions

    BekaH We have 5 crabs that share a 40 gallon tank "crabitat" my 15 year old son is always changing around the decor so it varies week by week- but I'm going to attempt to attach a photo of what it looks like today! The crabs are all buried in the photo since it's the morning.

    I'm also form maryland where we have a blue crab obsession- so this it's like this swap was made for me
