    What you do with cancelled envelopes is phenomenal. And how many it must have taken to do the 12 days of Christmas. Love your whole set!

    Please sign me up for this swap. Focal images I used are from a printout of the Bothy Threads 12 Days of Christmas cross stitch kit...I plan on buying the kit and actually doing it in cross stitch.
    Mailed out today with tracking.

    What fun! I just finished two cross-stitched crib quilts for the twins… added the final name today. It will be after Christmas probably before I embroider again. Good luck if you decide to take it on, and welcome to the swap!

    I must opt out, so very sad to say

    Btw, being new to ATCsforall, I was hoping/looking for a follow-up note from my host Marie, with guidelines specific to The 12 Days trade, including a private chat spot for dialog regarding my personal creative choices & options plus a mailing address. (Is that the normal procedure?)
    Will I be able to view the results?! That would make me so happy😊
    Have Very Fun. I'll be looking at other opportunities to join a trade soon. Food&Art

    Hi Candace, let me see if I can help you out. First thing, I’ll be glad to remove you from the swap listing, no worries there. Second thing, let me address your (previously unvoiced) expectations.
    Guidelines specific to the 12 Days swap are listed in the swap description. In the case of this swap you’ll see a. No paper thin cards b. No chunky elements c. Each card must be enclosed in a protective sleeve. Also you’ll see there, carefully listed, which version of the 12 Days we are using … as there are variations. That’s about all I asked for as I wanted players to be free to create what they wanted.
    I’m not sure what a private chat spot is? Although I hope you can see from the fact that I’m answering you now, that had you asked any questions I would gladly have answered them.
    Normally a player is not given the hosts address until they have completed their cards and request an address for mailing. There’s no reason to send every person who signs up an address. Only those who actually do complete and have something to mail. Does that make sense? This IS the normal procedure. As far as results, you can certainly continue viewing the thread ( that’s where you are now) and will see here any cards posted by their creators. In addition, after all cards are swapped I normally post a Gallery Wall in the SWAP GALLERY section of this website. If you look in the swap description you’ll find a link to last years Gallery Wall. I’ll post another when all cards are here this year and will provide a link to it here in the thread as soon as it’s posted. I think I answered all your questions. If not please ASK them, and I’ll try again. There are guideline FAQ’s for new players. I’ll see if I can find that link and post it for you as well. Once you’re familiar with the way things work here, jump in again! It’s loads of fun, and hosts are always willing to answer questions. Other players will be glad to provide guidance too… but we have to know that you need it. If you read through this thread…or a few other threads… you’ll see how the conversation flows. Sorry you’re missing out this time, but don’t let that spoil your fun. You’ll find loads of other opportunities in the forums.

    Hi again Candace,
    I found the FAQ link for you snd am adding it here. FAQ LINK

    Reading through it I DO see where it says the host will send you a ‘ swap guide or their mailing address’ after you sign up so I can see where you would be confused. I’m unfamiliar with ‘swap guide’ and generally addresses are not sent until needed, but please start with this link and see if your questions are answered there. Come back and ask if you think of any others, and happy swapping!

    Lazy LuAnn put her cards on Instagram....

    The thought of re-sizing and uploading TWELVE images to the gallery sounds daunting today.

    So I put up my Twelve Days of Christmas on Instagram!

    Thanks to all who post their ATCs here on the board. I really enjoy seeing them!!!

    Good idea! They look so good too! I have a hard time getting colors to show up so vividly on black, but you did GREAT!
