    Hand drawn/ painted TWINCHIES~ A Touch o' Whimsy~ Due October 9, 2020

    Swap Due Date - October 9, 2020
    Signup/withdraw date - Sept. 30
    Number of twinchies - 3 for 3 or 6:6
    Number of participants: 25 or so

    The last ATHON rekindled my love of twinchies, so I thought a swap was in order!

    The guidelines are pretty wide open, but your twinchies must be hand drawn or painted, and must be whimsical in some way. I know some people struggle with the definition of "whimsical," but to me it just means a fun/ playful style and/ or not uber-realistic. So that can be interpreted in any number of ways, whether you're drawing something in a stylized way, or combining elements that wouldn't normally go together, or using colors that wouldn't be typical of the thing you're drawing, or... whatever! If you have doubts about what qualifies, just ask

    What you draw is up to you! Animals, people, landscapes, and flowers are always popular, but feel free to get whimsical with your subject matter as well as your style. I just respectfully ask that you avoid anything overtly gruesome, pornographic, political, or religious. Also no plain white backgrounds, please!

    The nuts and bolts:

    - All twinchies should be a standard 2” square, and at least one layer of card stock/ heavy watercolor paper. Do not make your cards super flimsy (i.e. a single layer of regular paper) or super thick (i.e. chipboard).
    - Remember this is a hand drawn swaps-- no embellishments! That includes glitter/ glitter glue. (Glittery pens are fine.)
    - All twinchies should be sent in plastic sleeves.
    - Please include your username and the swap name on the back of all twinchies.
    - Please only send work you are proud of. I do my best to swap effort for effort, though that is open to my interpretation and dependent on what I receive.

    Mailing:
    - Include your username on your SASE. Please also include your number of twinchies (3 or 6).
    - US Participants – Include a stamped, self addressed envelope with one forever stamp (.55).
    - International participants – Please include a label with your name and address, and either one US dollar, a global forever stamp, or unused postage from the UK, Canada, or Australia. If you don't have any of those, I can cover postage if need be.

    Please note the October 9 due date. I tend to mail out returns fairly promptly, so plan to be on time.

    Who would like to play?

    Lurking so I will be subscribed. Fun idea, are you sure you don’t want to offer a 6/6 option?

    Yay, my first lurker! Hope you'll end up playing.

    Hmmm, I'm open to input on a 6:6 option if a lot of people are interested... and assuming I get a decent number of sign-ups? I think the only time I offered a bigger option, I ended up with a small number of players and it was a nightmare to swap out. But that was an ATC swap with a niche theme, so...

    Count me in! I’ve been on a hiatus and this sounds like a fun way to get back to creating! Also, I would be fine with a 6:6 swap if you decide to go with that! Thank you for the invitation to this swap!

    I'll play too. I made my first twinchie in the last Athon and then joined the MMH thread. I like the size! I'm OK with either 3 or 6.
    Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

    Ok, glad I asked about a 6/6 option. Please sign me up. Inchies are just too tiny for me, but twinchies are fun, and I’ve done a few of those.
