    'Twas the Twinchie Series - Ugly Christmas Sweater - Due December 10

    Swap Due Date: December 10, 2022
    SignUp / Withdraw: December 1, 2022
    Number of Twinchies: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: Any (please limit use of stickers)
    'Twas the Twinchie Series - Ugly Christmas Sweater

    Twinchies are terrific two inch treasures! A little smaller than ATCs but still room for lots of creativity.

    This swap is for twinchies decorated like an ugly Christmas sweater. Your Twinchie can show a person in an ugly sweater, have an ugly sweater on display or be part of the ugly sweater. Put a little time into your artwork and send in twinchies that you would be pleased to receive. No plain white backgrounds please.

    *Let's not over-think ugly and please don't get offended if someone creates an ugly sweater that happens to be like a piece of clothing that you actually own. Just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is ugly. *

    This series will include the following themes:
    Candies and Sweets (favorite holiday candy or sweet treat)
    Wrap it Fancy! (decorate your twinchie like a fancy gift - may have embellishments) and
    ‘Sicles and Flakes (must have snowflake(s) and/or icicles)

    Twinchies are 2 inch by 2 inch squares. Please make sure your twinchie is on a sturdy backing such as cereal box. On the back, include the swap name, your user name, your real name, and your location. A host twinchie is not required to play but if you send one, I will be giddy and treasure it!

    When your twinchies are ready to mail please PM me for my address. If you have my address on Beachy, that is the correct one. Please mail early as we will be heading into the holiday season and that can slow things down quite a bit.

    US players: please include a large address label and a forever stamp. I will provide envelopes.
    International players: please include a large address label and a concealed US dollar bill. I will provide envelopes.

    When you receive your returns, please post in the thread and leave ‘you rocks’ for the artist whose twinchies you receive. If you feel that I’ve done a good job as host, please leave an iTrader for me.

    Who would like to design some twinchie sized ugly Christmas sweaters?

    I am lurking for a while. Is your definition of an ugly Christmas sweater something over-decorated, loud and gaudy?

    Welcome fundygirl!

    CiCi - I am a very lenient host when it comes to that sort of thing. It could be over-decorated, annoying colors, loud and gaudy, tacky or anything that you consider to be ugly.

    I added a couple more lines in the description about 'ugly'.

    Haagmm, please sign me up. This is really a fun (and should be fairly easy) Swap. I hope we get more players. I happen to have a sweater I bought specifically for a family Ugly Sweater contest for Christmas a couple of years ago. I will definitely use that one to model one of my twinchies.

    I have the cutest ugly sweater that I wear just because it's so fabulously ugly. (Seriously, every time I wear it, people laugh and say it's so cute and ugly at the same time!) I'll try to remember to get a photo of it when I get home tonight so I can share the ugliness with everyone!

    Oh please do that, fundygirl, and I will post a pic of mine too. I think what takes it over the top is all the glitz, sequins and metallic trims!

    Attachment 235790 this would be my ugly Christmas sweater. That way I’m not offending anyones sense of style, but everyone’s sense of style.
    Attachment 235792 ugly elf sweater. Those colors are just so far off!
    Attachment 235791 emoji Santa with digital HO HO HO -this one is my opinion, emojis are the last thing I’d want on a warm fuzzy Christmas sweater.

    My "ugly sweaters" are heading out in the morning. I did my best, but it's really hard to make anything on these critters less than cute. . .

    These little sweaters have lots of glitz and bling, which aren't showing up really well here.
