    I like the 90 day due dates too. It makes me feel like I can join up and have plenty of time. I am really needing to work on my 7 deadly sin cards. I have been mailing Beverly two sets of sins, in one envelope. Well the due date is creeping up for PRIDE and then I need to do ENVY. Or is it the other way around?

    Jennifer, I have to go to the library to drop off the AUDIO I borrowed. I picked this up the last time I stopped by your house. It was a long audio 17 Cds. I am done!!! I listen to audio books in my craft room.

    So anyway the rest of you will get them in the mail this week, and Jennifer will get hers today.

    Feel free to groan about the tackiness but don't give away the mystery just yet.

    Oh I am so glad you asked. I see you are new to AFA, so lets start from the beginning.

    Once upon a time Ferretgirl started a swap called FINISH IT UP.
    She send each player an envelope with 3 things to finish up and make cards with. We then mailed our finished masterpieces back to Ferretgirl.

    You can find her swaps by going to profile. Find Statistics and find Threads STARTED by Ferretgirl. She just finished round 5.
    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34154

    Recently I started a swap called Trash to Treasure Mystery Envelope. It had 10 of the same items for all of the players. This is how it differed from FGs, swap. My stuff was all the same, and FGs items were different for each player. All of my items were upcycled items. Things I saved from the landfill. I sent, some coffee images saved from Kcup boxes, and punched images from Security envelopes, tea tags, book pages.

    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/show...=34039&page=26

    Jfkaskdown did round 2 of the T2T swap, and I am pretty sure round 3 is coming up with a new host, NotinKansas. It does take awhile to accumulate similar trash for all the envelopes.

    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34287

    This swap is not trash, and all 4 items that you get will be the same. The item is tacky. not sticky but in poor taste. Not lewd but just made from a material that would in general only create a very tacky atc. So the idea is that each player needs to make something beautiful from this UGH.

    I already started some cards and I cant wait to show you all my first creation.

    This is a multi media swap. I do think it will work fine for those who paint or draw. It is really a swap for those who can think outside of the box and create a purse from a sow's ear.

    No not really a hint, I just thought since she was a secret mermaid that she would like a mystery.


    Here is hint, I bought these items at a thrift store in Michigan over a year ago. They are so tacky I haven't found an use for them. Hence the swap. You solve my art dilemma.

    By hosting the swap, I started creating some things to use the tacky item.

    There is one spot left in group 2.

    I will open up group 3, that has only 11 spots. This swap has been open 5 days so I gather the last group will also fill up.

    Thanks to everyone who has been brave.

    I cant wait to show you some of my cards.
