    January 5x7 Canvas Trade

    NEW COMMENTS AND IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS IN BLUE - PLEASE READ!


    Deadline to sign up: CLOSED. PLEASE JOIN US IN FEBRUARY.
    Mail-by date (try to mail by this date): 25 January
    Deadline to get to your partner: 31 January
    Open Theme, HD/HP or Mixed Media (You do not need to make something based on your partner’s profile, so you are allowed to work on it before partners are assigned.)
    Substrate: 5x7 canvas board.


    HOW TO JOIN and RULES:
    ~Players have until evening (U.S. Central time) on 7 January to sign up. I will then assign partners the following day. (U.S. Central time.)
    ~Players MUST be able to commit; you cannot withdraw after partners are assigned. No negative iTraders in last 6 months, no Neutrals in last 3 months.
    ~International players welcomed! Please PM me if you cannot afford international postage.
    ~Players must PM their partners and trade addresses once they have been assigned.
    ~Communicate delays/known absences to your partner.
    ~Keep your partner and the thread posted on when the canvas was mailed and when you received your canvas.
    ~Anticipate at least a 3-week ship time from places outside the US or Canada, so lt your partner and the forum know when you've mailed the canvas. Please do not give a Neutral or Negative iTrader for a long ship time.


    CREATING THE CANVAS
    ~Open medium on 5x7 canvas board. (Can be HD/HP, mixed media)
    ~You can start canvases early or wait to be assigned a partner – you do not have to make something based on your partner’s profiles, but you certainly are welcome to do that if you want to make it a little more special.
    ~We would love it if you can post a picture of the canvas you made! (After your partner receives it!)
    ~Consider coating your canvas with a clear protective coating designed for artwork to help protect it on its journey. Definitely do this if you use mediums like pencils, charcoal or chalk pastels.

    MAILING THE CANVAS
    ~Canvases should be mailed early enough to make it into your partner’s hands before the last day of the month.
    ~Canvases may be mailed in an envelope or 'naked' (ie, mailed as-is and not in an envelope). Understand that a naked canvas may end up with postal marks, scratches or other blemishes (this just adds to the character of the canvas!) The canvas' creator is not responsible for any damage to a canvas that has been mailed naked. If you absolutely do not want to receive a naked canvas, please post that when you sign up, and I will do my best to partner you with someone who will mail the canvas in an envelope, but this may not always be possible.
    ~I strongly encourage senders to get a tracking number when you mail the canvas. (We have had canvases take the scenic route before, so tracking really helps to make sure they don't get too lost.) The canvas' creator is responsible for mailing a new canvas if the original does not arrive after 3 weeks.

    ETTIQUITE RULES
    ~Do not join if you aren’t sure that you can commit to making a canvas. We understand that life doesn’t always follow the rules, so if something unexpected happens, PM your partner and work it out with them.
    ~Communicate, communicate, communicate! You MUST PM your partner if you aren’t able to meet your deadline. No communication WILL RESULT IN NEGATIVE iTRADERS! No one likes giving those out, if you are delayed for whatever reason, please let your partner know ahead of time.

    iTRADER
    ~Positive iTrader = given to your partner when you receive your canvas. I, as the host, do not get an iTrader.
    ~Negative iTrader = no canvas by the deadline and no communication.


    Who would like to play? (And please help spread the word - the more players we have, the better!)

    Happy New Year, everyone! May this year be better than last year!

    I have shorted the main post so its not as long and redundant. Please note that the only real change is that I gave a 3-week grace for a canvas to be delivered to their partner. After 3 week, the creator is responsible for making a new canvas to replace the one that was lost in the mail.

    I also want to highlight that if you cannot afford international mail, then please PM me!

    So who would like to join?

    Foxglove, you have January 1 as the date to sign up by. Is that correct? (Just wondered, since it's usually the 7th of the month.)
    If it's a typo I would like to sign up. If not that's fine, too.

    Oops! Good catch, Plumhill2001! It should have been 7 January as the sign-up deadline. Thank you for catching that - I have it corrected now, and I have signed you up!

    Yes! I'm so sorry - I PM'd the partner list to everyone! I know I'm late every time - this time I was busy trying to vaccinate, spay and rehome a mom and two kittens. If anyone is in the San Antonio area wants a pretty little orange and white kitten, let me know! I am getting everyone vaccinated and spayed.

    Fandanie's is officially mailed!
    They said 3-4 days, but I'm thinking that might be the optimism of a small town, out-back, northern Minnesota post office. I'm HOPING they're right, but who knows what might happen when it hits the big cities of the east coast, lol.
    Think positive, right?

    I received a beautiful fish painting from Fandanie today! Maybe she'll post a pic?
    I really like it!
    I'm heading off to give you some iTrader!
