    Anybody interested? I guess we already have a lot of Halloween swaps open.
    If no players in the next few days I will close this.

    Bex, I hope you can give it a few more days! I think it is a great theme (among many Halloween ones right now, as you say). The idea of cute little kids in their costumes appeals to me, and would be the one Halloween swap I would be signing up for. Along with waiting a bit longer to allow for interest to be shown, I might also suggest moving the due date ahead a bit if you can. Maybe Oct. 24? Just thought that might help a bit with this competitive theme. Hope we get some signups and then I will join in too (but it would really help me if the date was later)....

    I would love to do this swap if others joined too. Add me to the list! If the swap ends up closing I can still use the idea to post the cards in the main gallery for trade!
    Open to Blind trades.

    Well that's promising if there is just the three of us that is enough for a swap!
    I will start the players list with myself and you Fernheart95 if that's ok then.
    CiCiCreates I hope you will return, I am reluctant to change the date as I have time off work and I could possibly be going away in October.

    I'll give it a shot, Bex!
    I wonder if people hesitate because they don't feel confident about drawing people? I'm going for shapeless costumes, lol.
    I hope more folks come out of the woodwork!

    Thanks for taking up the challenge plumhill2001.

    I actually prefer drawing people but am challenged by when people want me to draw trees, landscapes or houses in the pat swaps. You are right though you can make this as easy or difficult as you want to. How difficult is a ghost costume?, it would be cool too!


    Maybe it is a bit slow getting started as there are a lot of swaps on at the moment. I am going to try and get my own cards done soon to hopefully inspire other.

    Here are my first two. The second two are drawn, but not painted yet. I'm glad I figured out my uploading problem. I just needed to adjust the picture size in my camera! (Apparently, it changes itself when it feels like it? I sure don't recall changing it to HUGE!)
