    Lightbulb CHRISTMAS in JULY OR NOT! COINS Due July 5th 2019

    Due Date: July 5, 2019
    Withdrawal date: None just communicate.
    Number of COINS: 3:3 or 6:6
    Number of participants: 30
    Mediums: YOU MUST use a Christmas card for your background, and then go from there!!!

    THEME: you can do Christmas or You can NOT do Christmas. Meaning you must use a Christmas card, but you can alter it so it doesn't have a Christmas theme. Please be open to both kinds of themes for your returns.

    The goal is to use up your saved Christmas cards, you know you saved them all, for some reason. Well here it is.


    There are always the rules, and the rule followers. Lets be those kinds of artists

    Joining info

    *Sign up by posting to the thread your intent to join.

    *We would love to see your coins in the thread or your gallery. Ask us how, if you need help.



    COIN INFO

    *All ATCoins must be a 2.5” cleanly cut circle.

    *Christmas cards really are thin. Please add another cleanly cut base like chipboard or sturdy card stock, to your coins.

    *Add your AFA name, and your real name and the swap name:CHRISTMAS in JULY OR NOT, and the year 2019, to the back of the coin.

    ***** DONT HAVE THE Christmas Cards ? OR THE COIN CUTTING DEVICE? please apply for the Castlequeen5's Christmas Card to Coin relocation program. How? Send me via PM your mailing info. I will mail off 6 coins and 6 backings.


    Mailing info

    * When you're ready to mail, please PM me for my address, but I have not moved in 16 years.

    * coins needs to be in some kind of protective mailing sleeve, pocket or plastic. I will work with you on whatever you send. You can do individual sleeves or even the 3x3 protect baseball sleeve that you cut up.

    * You can send a SASE envelope if you want. or just send a sticky address label and return postage

    * USA 3 coins will cost one forever stamp and 6 coins will cost 70 cents
    *International players, it cost $1.15 to mail a 1 ounce = approx 28 grams, envelope to you. 6 coins might cost more than that to return your swap to you. I am open to $1 bills, and global forever coins, even postage stamps from your country.


    Returns
    * When you receive your returns, please leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists. It is always nice to tell the player which card you received too.


    There is no penalty for withdrawal, and no withdrawal date, but please communicate, no cards, no communication may result in neutral itrader from me the host. I will swap right away, so please mail by the mail by date. In general, it takes 5 days for USA, 2 weeks for Canada, France, etc, 3 weeks for AU.

    lurking

    i used to save christmas cards
    i used to have a long list when i first got married
    but stuff happens over 50 years and now my list is really short
    i used to make baskets and other things from christmas cards
    but got tired of that kind of thing and taking up space
    now i usually only save christmas letters or cards with photos
    but i digress...............
    if i can play i may have to ask for cards to use
    just came off a horrible tax season -working long stressful hours
    I need to decompress before i can decide if i am still an artist or even if i am still human

    I've been a very naughty girl and I've allowed myself to make cards and coins instead of cleaning. No excuses. Just being in the moment!

    Are these OK. It was harder to use the cards as backgrounds because the focal images were just too good and I didn't want to change them too much.
