    ~ HOUSE ~ Come to our Block Party ~ Trade House Shaped ATcs ~

    1:1 Trading or 2:2, 3:3 or ?:?~ House Shaped ATC Group
    Wowwe had over 1,300 posts in the first thread! Lets keep up of the fun house trades. And don't forget the MMH House thread.


    RULES:
    ~ play nice with others
    ~ These are ATCs, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", but the background is cut away to shape the house.
    ~ The house shape is up to you, but keep the size. Don't make them too small or bigger than a penny sleeve fit.
    ~ All trades are done as private trades, it is not a swap.
    ~ Communicate with your trade partner, If you both are going to be making more houses you may want to hold on a make it a multiple trade over several days or a week. I think trades are usually given two weeks in other threads.
    ~ You do not have to trade just because you were asked to. Not all art appeals to every collector. But remember not everybody has the same supplies to work with, or skills; so be kind.
    ~ If you really want a house someone made, You can ask them to hold it (trade pending) and try to making a house they are interested in. But no trade is required with out both participants approval.

    So start making houses and post them here. Lets get trading.....
    These are some of my houses all are TRADED

    Our first house thread

    I would be interested in houses or atcs, but now I will have to track down my HP supplies, and the only one I know FOR SURE where they are, would be the postage stamps -- but they are all cool stamps.

I've got a few HP photos that I kept from the price tags that I've been planning to use in making some Hogwarts shaped for this group! Oh, I also bought an unlined Hogwarts journal for art journaling, and more butter beer. Almost bought a wand, but seeing "Made in China" on them turned me off. Decided I can make my own wand

    Thanks for all the kind words. You know I love hanging with this group! You're all my peeps! (that's the right term, isn't it? Or all my BFFs? How about, You're all my dearest friends!!). Alan is going to start therapy with a man who specializes in anxiety and panic issues, so maybe he can somehow help with the claustrophobia. But, truthfully, who doesn't get rather claustrophobic when placed in one of those coffin-like tubes for a loud MRI? I know I take a xanax and have them put a cloth over my eyes. As for an open MRI, I think there may be one, but even that causes Alan severe anxiety. Heck, we were at the emergency room on Saturday and just being in the office with the nurse and having the door closed caused him problems (but he was in the middle of a panic attack, so there's that). It did help him to talk with our pet sitter who said these feelings will go away.

    Vicki, Mme Butterfly is all yours! I'll look at your gallery and see what's what.

    Linda, Party at the Chickadee's House (easily recreated since the original is long gone) and Dance Hall are all yours. Looking forward to whatever you make (Harry?? ).

    They do have numerous HP dies, and although they aren't cheap, 25% off makes them (almost) reasonable.
    Plus the dies I was looking at were 2 1/2 x 3 or 3 1/2 by 3, which means I could almost crop them enough to put them on an ATC.

Oh well. I did drop several halloween dies and stuff from my shopping cart before ordering, so maybe I'll check to see if they've sent the newsletter yet with the coupon. Never too early to stock up on Halloween!!

    BTW, Alan's dr. said that he absolutely has to have the MRI, and no, they won't give him an anesthesia. He can only take 1 or 2 xanax. He said ok, but only after he can get in some visits with a therapist who might be able to help him with some coping strategies. I'm guessing he'll take about 4 xanax this time because he has to have the MRI within 2 weeks and so far the therapist hasn't even returned his call, let alone scheduled an appointment.

    Simon Says had 25% off one's order that ended yesterday.
    They had $20.00 off one order for another promo.
    Wait a week, and see what they offer next.
    As I recall, when I first signed up, they offered me a new customer discount.

    CAUTION!!!!!!
    Their coupons have expiry dates.
    It had a FAB coupon that only lasted 24 hours from the date of the email, and it took me longer than that to read my email and place my order, and I lost the discount Grrrrrrrrrr


    They do have learning letters and videos on new products that are always interesting.
    I think you will learn something cool.
    And depending on what you order, and when, their prices are SOMETIMES cheaper than ordering direct from the manufacturer.

    Thanks for the update on Alan.
    We are all in this with you, and lending our support.

    I'm sorry if I got you all buying Harry Potter stuff now. LOL Yes I love the little face stamps with the Dies. I would love to have the whole set. But probably wouldn't use them enough to justify the purchase. I do want at least one or two cuts from each to do in my scrapbooks. I would really love to trade for a couple Diecuts(with the face) from any of you that bought them. I've had that request in my signature since I first saw them, but nobody has pm me.

    I know they can be cut down but for atcs. Dumbledore is one of my favorite characters, but I wish they had made his Die more like the others. I almost bought Snape, but I had to pay Auto insurance this month and things are really tight. (Or maybe we should do some Postcard size Harry Potter trades?)

    No I don't think I have ordered from SimonSays before. I guess I should get on the newsletter.

    I was wondering when we'd reach the limit and need to start a new thread. And I'll be happy to send you some Snapes, Linda!!

    Finally! Here is my 1st house. I owe a card to Ancient Planter and Just Ducky. Since my first trade was with Ancient Planter, I am giving her first dibs on this house.

    Ancient Planter, if it's not your cup of tea, just let me know...

    Will try to make more houses soon!
