    Jane Austen Swap, open media, due May 31st, 2018

    Swap Due Date – Thursday, May 31st, 2018
    Signup/withdraw Date – None; please just communicate
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of Participants – Unlimited
    Media – Open media (excluding exclusively digital)
    Theme – Jane Austen

    Jane Austen was one of the best writers of the early 19th century, and one of a relatively small group of successful women writers. By the time she died at the young age of 41, she had completed six novels, including Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), Emma (1816), Northanger Abbey (1818), and Persuasion (1818).

    This swap is to celebrate Jane Austen’s life and works. Each card must reflect something related to Austen (biographical or her works), and must include a quote from one of Austen’s novels. Please make sure that your card reflects the Regency era of the early 1800s. Your cards may include images from movies made of Austen’s works. (Please note that Becoming Jane would not be acceptable, since it is not based on one of her novels, and is instead a largely conjectural biographical fabrication).

    Card Guidelines:
    1. Each card must be the standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    2. Each card must be original and unique. Please don’t send in cards that you’ve swapped/traded in the past or plan on replicating for swapping/trading in the future.
    3. Embellishments are OK as long as they are relatively flat and lightweight.
    4. Please send in only work that you have put thought, time, and effort into. Make sure that you are swapping a card you would be happy to receive.
    5. Please make sure that cards have a sturdy background and earn the name “card.”
    6. Each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve (please no connecting photo album sleeves without also including individual sleeves).
    7. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, and your location.

    Mailing Guidelines:
    1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
    2. Please protect your cards from damage in the mail by including a cardstock background or folder, or by placing individual cards within sturdy sleeve protectors.
    3. If you tape your cards onto a sturdy background when mailing, please use an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape. I don’t want anyone’s beautiful artwork to be damaged by tape.
    4. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your return cards.
    5. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns.
    6. If you are mailing internationally, please provide one of the following for your returns:
    a. One U.S. Forever stamp.
    b. One well-concealed $1 bill.
    c. $1 payment via PayPal.

    *When you are ready to mail your cards, please just private message me for my address.
    *iTraders will be given when cards are received by me.
    *Please note that cards must be received by the due date. No cards and no communication will result in neutral iTrader. You may withdraw any time before the due date.
    *A host card would be greatly appreciated and loved, but is never required.
    *Please make sure to leave an iTrader for your host (me) and You Rocks! for the artists that created your return cards when you receive them.

    Who would like to play?

    That is a great quote! Did you just want us to include quotes from the author herself, or could we also use quotes from the stories?

    Quotes from Jane in life or from her works are both ok.

    I think the above quote is from Pride & Prejudice.
