    Rolo-Reunion

    Welcome to our continuing rolo trading site. We are now into Rolo-Reunion. New members, please ask to sign in.

    This will be an ongoing swap. I will serve as the monitor of this thread, posting updates as needed, making corrections and answering any questions, etc., but trading will initiated by you with the other participants who have signed up. Please use your personal messaging system to work out your trade requests.

    Since this thread will be ongoing you can sign up or drop out when you wish, trade when ever and with whom ever you want at any time.

    There will be some basic guidelines to follow:

    1. The rolodex card size is 3 x 5 (if someone has the smaller size that's ok too, but please let us know before you buy anything).

    2. You will set up your own trades via personal messaging or email.

    3. The format for the address rolodex card should be uniform:

    user name on top and first
    real name
    address
    telephone and/or email are optional

    4. Artists can list a couple of topics/themes they might like have on their card but
    always remember this can be artist choice. Please discuss this with your trading
    partner BEFORE the actual trade.

    5. Please make the back of the rolo card look nice as well so if there is an address
    change the new address can go right on the back and still look artsy.

    I wrote a "how to article" for rolos: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2177

    PARTICIPATING ARTISTS IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER:

    c = circular rolodex
    f - flat rolodex

    NOTE: When making rolodex cards, if the person has a "c" behind their name it means they have a circular rolodex base and the art on the back should go upside down (holes at the top) and if the person has an "f" behind their name it means they have a flat rolodex base and the art should go in the same direction on the back as on the front (holes as the bottom).

    Hooray for a new thread! Every time we "start over" I have this secret hope that I will be able to keep up...so far it hasn't worked out that way but hope springs eternal!

    I still have a couple available rolos in my gallery....

    Okay, so I've caught up on the ton of swaps I'd signed up for and I'd like to trade rolos again so PM me if you'd like to trade rolos with me!

    I still don't have any time but I just wanted to say Hi and I miss my trades and friends. No mail at this house...boohoo. Anyway have fun and know that I still flip thru my circular rolo file and enjoy my collection of art and friends. I still check in to see the wonderful art and read the crazy writings. Diane

    I'm here! I feel like I haven't made a rolo in a long time. Anyone want to trade?

    Well, as much as I've enjoyed making rolos, I'm going to self suspend for awhile. I need to do a few chunky pages and when those are done, I'll be ready to trade

    Just for accounting purposes, I need to send to joyflower and I'm waiting for rolos from joyflower, amyfaerie, coffeelatte, pippin, susietex, sallyann, and mrubyjean. I know some of you have been traveling, some have arranged to send at the end of the month, one may be lost in the mail, etc., so no worries, just a list!

    I believe you are right. She owes me a rolo and she was in 2 of my swaps and never sent the cards.

    I'll send her a PM and unless she catches up, I'll delete her from the list. Maybe I'll go on the membership list now. It shows the last time a person checked in on line.

    Yeah, she signed up for the Zetti 3-ring Circus Swap but then I never heard from her again?

    I have removed WOClover from our group list. It seems she hasn't been on line since late April and has left lots of swaps uncompleted. Although there may be extenuating circumstances, I think caution would be advised before setting up a rolo swap at this time.

    Alright. I'm finally throwing in the towel. I want "In" on the rolo thing. Now I don't have a rolodex yet--so I need to buy one before I can start getting cards so that I know what kind I need.

    Does anyone recommend a particular type of rolo?

    Themes: Trees/whimsical/gothic/fantasy/colorful/asian/anything goes!

    Well, I have the circular kind and it makes a really cool-looking display statement but it does take up a lot of room! Maybe flat rolo owners can weigh in on the virtues of the flat holder!

    Yeah, space is at a premium in my art studio right now. Can you fit more on the circular kind than the flat kind?
