    Word of the year - Due February 21, 2019

    Due Date: February 21, 2019
    Signup/Withdraw Date: February 14, 2019
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: All are welcome
    Media: Open… no heavy/bulky embellishments


    Word of the Year 2019

    I’ve participated in or hosted Word of the Year here at AFA every chance I’ve got and have always loved it! I’m already thinking on my words for 2019.

    Here’s how it works:

    Instead of New Year’s Resolutions, you come up with a personal 'Word Of The Year' (WOTY). A WOTY is a guide…. something that encompasses what you most want for yourself this year. You can search "personal word of the year" on Google to find out more. Additionally, here is a link to our GALLERY WALL from the 2018 WOTY!

    Now I'd like to focus on our Words for 2019. Your cards can either depict your own WOTY or words that you feel would be suitable for someone else. Please post pics if you can to inspire us all. You are free to show any word, in any medium, but keep in mind that they should be mostly positive. Some examples might be courage, create, share, journey, listen, love, experiment, new, trust, and so on.

    Rules
    - All cards should be 2.5” x 3.5” on sturdy card stock or better.
    - If you prefer to illustrate without text showing, you may list the word on the back of the ATC.
    - All cards should be sent in individual plastic sleeves for protection.
    - Send only your best work please... we’ll be looking at it all year!
    - Please include username, real name, and swap name on the back of your cards.
    - Keep cards as flat as possible—no heavy embellishments.


    Postage (United States)

    Please include a SASE or a large address label and stamps in the value your cards took to mail to me.

    Postage (International)

    Please include a SASE or a large address label and $1 (3 cards) or $2 (6 cards) well concealed.

    Other Info

    Please message me for my address when you are ready to mail and post to the thread when you send your cards. If you already have my address, it has not changed.

    When your cards arrive to me I will mark 'received' by your name in the sign up roster. I will also notify you in the thread.

    When you receive your returns, please leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists. I will imbed each name in the roster with a hyperlink to make this part easier. I will also leave iTrader as I receive your cards. One of my words this year might be ‘Efficient’!

    Sample cards:

    Attachment 202623 Less Attachment 202624 Journal

    Who would like to set a guiding WOTY with me?

    Due to family stuff, I'm going to lurk until I can get them created. Great idea! And I need the positive affirmations!
    I love to trade! Please check out what I currently have but I'm also usually open for requests.
    ~This adventure is worth it.
    If I comment on your work it means I'd love to trade.

    I'll be lurking until I can finish these cards, after the other swaps I've committed to. I LOVE this idea, though!

    Iím not doing personal trades right now, but I have some available cards in my gallery.

    I have been, Marie!!! I'm sticking with one of my words from last year- authenticity- because it has been a simple but effective reminder for me to return to over and over. I think I'm also focusing on words like "recover" and "thrive," so we'll see what kind of cards I can come up with this year ;~)
