Due Date: March 13, 2021
Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
Number of Cards: 3/3
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Media: Any (just make sure they fit into a penny sleeve)

PQR Coins Swap~ Alphabet Series

For this round of coins, you will be making one "P", one "Q", and one "R" coin. In return, you will get one of each. The theme of each coin is one letter of the alphabet. You can have one image that represents that letter or a collage of different items for that letter. Each coin should have the letter visible as a focal point. I hope that makes sense.

Swap Requirements:

Coins need to have a diameter of 2.5 inches. If you do not have a 2.5 circle die or punch, please make sure you cut your circles neatly. They do not have to be perfect, but they should not look sloppy.
Original artwork only
3:3 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured) ~ one of each letter (P,Q,R)
Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope. I am going to do my best to swap effort for effort.
Please make sure your coins are sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
Each coin needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each coin.


US Participants – Please include a legible SASE.
International Participants - Please include a mailing label with your address clearly written or typed. I will provide an envelope for returns for all international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.
Please make sure to package your coins securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.
When you are ready to send in your coins, please send me a private message for my mailing address (if you need it ~ I'm at the same address that I've been at since joining AFA). Also, please post in the thread when you send in your coins, so I can be on the lookout.
Make sure your coins are mailed in time to be in my hands on or before the due date.

It is always fun and inspiring when artists share their artwork in the thread, so feel free to do so!

When you receive your coins, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received artwork from.

Who's ready for the next swap in the alphabet series?

I have some updating to do tomorrow on coins received.

I'm also going to post the next swap :)

02-06-2021, 08:48 PM
Okay, I think I'm all caught up with received coins and itraders.
Please let me know if I missed you.

I'm sorry for not being an attentive host. I'm trying to get back to normal. I've been a bit overwhelmed and anxious about everything these days. I'm hoping the upcoming school break helps me normalize a bit.

02-08-2021, 09:44 PM
Mailed my coins today.

02-11-2021, 05:44 PM
My PQR coins were mailed today, February 11, 2021.

02-15-2021, 05:47 AM
I am so sorry but I am going to have to withdraw - these coins simply would not come together as I wanted and it is now too late to mail.
I will see you all in the STU swap.

02-15-2021, 06:16 PM
Sorry to hear that, Donna! I'm sure many of the other players would be willing to do a 1:1 to fill in the letters at a later date if you want. I'm surely one :)

02-23-2021, 09:58 PM
Prex - any sign of my coins yet?

02-25-2021, 01:09 PM
I have coins from cmcarli and nanvan :jiggy:

Thank you Beverley!!

03-13-2021, 11:33 AM
Prex - did my coins make it? Just checking. Thanks!

03-13-2021, 03:36 PM
Yes, they did. Unfortunately, the package looks like it was run over. I'm surprised that all the coins are there. Most of them are fine. I can see a little curving, but not really damaged. The pizza coin got it the worst, so I'll keep that one when I swap them out :)

03-25-2021, 06:55 PM
I'm mailing out returns tomorrow ~ thank you all for your patience :notworthy:

03-29-2021, 04:44 PM
Heather, your coins arrived Saturday, the 27th. Iím not sure what day you mailed because there was no postmark on the envelope. Unfortunately, they arrived too late, so I sent them back today. They were absolutely gorgeous, and Iím sure anyone would happily make a letter coin to do a personal trade.

03-31-2021, 01:37 PM
I received my AWESOME coins from Beverley, Spirit Soul and Prex. They are all beautiful and I am so happy with my returns. I'm off to leave iTrader and you rocks. Thank you my fellow swappers for the coins and a special thank you to Prex for hosting these great swaps!!

04-02-2021, 04:45 AM
Received lovely returns from Beverley (P is for Painting), Laffqueen (Q) and AngelJoy (R) - thank you all for your wonderful artistry! And many thanks to prex for hosting this series! Leaving YouRocks and ITrader now.

04-02-2021, 05:50 PM
Thank you, prex for hosting and for the great returns from seascape131 (P), nanvan (Q), and cmcarli (R).

04-16-2021, 06:47 PM
Just a head's up... going to request to archive this one soon.
