    November Weird Holidays (Open Media) -- Due Dec. 17, 2022

    NOVEMBER Weird Holidays Swap -- Due DEC. 17, 2022

    Swap Due Date – Dec. 17, 2022
    Sign-up-by date – None
    Withdraw-by date – None; just communicate
    Number of Items – 3 for 3
    Number of participants: Unlimited
    Media: Open (except for exclusively digital and photography)

    Who knew November could be so weird?

    Some examples: You can celebrate World Jellyfish Day (Nov. 3), Marooned Without a Compass Day (Nov. 6), National Button Day (Nov. 16) or Pumpkin Pie Day (Nov. 21). How about Turtle Adoption Day (Nov. 27), No-Shave November (the whole month) or Geography Awareness Week (week of Nov. 17)?

    Check out the list of bizarre holidays on Checkiday (my personal favorite), HolidayInsights or TimeandDate. If you have another reference source, feel free to use it. Choose any 3 holidays or commemorative weeks/months, and create 3 different ATCs that celebrate the weirdness.

    Requirements

    Send 3 different cards.
    Your name, user name, swap name, location on the back of each card
    Cards must be ATCs (not APCs).

    Media

    All media are welcome, except for digital or photography. Please keep cards flat. No bulky embellishments!

    Mailing

    Do not send envelopes. I will provide them.
    Include a large self-addressed label.
    PM me for my address when you are ready to mail. My North Babylon, NY, address is correct.

    Postage

    U.S. players: Please include one forever stamp.
    International players: Please include one U.S. global forever stamp or $1. I can also accept PayPal; please contact me for my email address.

    Deadlines/iTrader

    Cards must be received by December 17, 2022. Please allow sufficient transit time.

    A host card is appreciated, but in no way required. If I’ve missed anything here, please PM me.

    I'm mostly an abstract artist but I've been trying to push myself by choosing some swaps where I would have to do some slightly more realistic work. (I figure that I can't expect my students to push themselves if I don't push myself!) So I chose this one to try. But I'll admit to being a little nervous. So I made my first one today and I'm proud of myself! Not perfect AT ALL, but reasonable! And, as someone who is still trying to figure out this ATC thing - I'm pretty happy with myself!

    Great start Jen! This is a fun swap to start stretching yourself (I'm pretty sure last year's Nov Weird Holidays was my first attempt with this group, too).
