Swap due date May 6th, 2021
Number of cards, 4:4
Limited to 19 players


Trash to Treasure #19, House shaped with a house number required.

PLEASE send me a personal message here in AFA with your mailing address, and I will mail out an envelope of Trash for you to work with.

Please read the requirements, as they change from host to host and from swap to swap. When you sign up please state in this thread that, you have read and understand the requirements, and will send postage to cover initial mailing cost by host.

This is a no withdrawal swap, I will leave neutral itrader to those who don’t complete the commitment to this swap. No cards, no contact , mailing after mail by deadline may result in neutral itrader.

IMPORTANT INFO UNIQUE TO THIS SWAP

**** I am mailing out 19 envelopes of very similar trash to treasure items. I have enclosed a list. Approx 22 items not counting the list or the envelope, which yes, you can also use. There might be two odd items not listed, a alphabet letter, and 1/2 a heart, Any extras can be used.

****You must *use at least two trash items per card. *Use can be more than attaching the item, you can alter the item, or use it to paint on the card. The word *use, yes you can rip it, paint it, turn it around backwards, modify it. But you must *use it somehow.

**** You must make the card House shaped, and you must have a number on each card.

****You must declare on the back of the cards which trash items you used.

****You must use a sturdy background.

**** House shaped cards need to measure 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches approx, lets only do upright, vertical houses, not horizontal. Cards may not have items that extend beyond the side or TOP/ bottom margins., because the items get ruined in the envelope. I can not swap cards that are too big or too small. I will have to return them to you. I do mean approximate. I wont get on the cm ruler out.


ABOUT MAILING

Please post in the forum when you have mailed. Photos of cards are appreciated.

Please remember to include postage to reimburse my initial mailing. Plus postage to get your cards home.

I am using window envelopes, that I bought at the thrift store, for the returns, that I painted over. Just enclose a STICKY address label, and postage.


Please remember that, Posting in this forum that you got your envelope of trash from me, posting that you mailed to me, and posting that you got your card returns is an expectation for this swap. No silent swappers. Please do not make me track you down to get an update. We want to see you joining us in our journey.


ABOUT RETURNS
* When you receive your returns, please post in the swap thread that your cards arrived, Then please, leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists. It is always nice to tell the players which cards you received too. Again no silent swappers.
GEFM means GOT envelope from me

I am lurking at the moment, but I wanted to clarify this one thing. When you say "you must have a number on each card.", does that me like a house number/address, or does it mean a random number somewhere on the house, or does it mean numbering our cards on the back? Thanks for you help.

CQ, I have a question. I know the boundaries of the cards can't go beyond the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. Can we cut the roof into shapes as long as part of it is 3 1/2? Same thing with sides as long as most of it is 2 1/2? I hope this makes sense. Thanks.

The house shape card must be 2.5 inches, wide and the top of the card must end, including roof and chimney at 3.5 inches. I can visual the roof being lower than a chimney. Try not to have things stick out higher. They get damaged in envelopes.

Yes!! TWO more players. I mailed all the rest of the envelopes at the PO with the aid of my postal worker David. If you get anything postage due, that is WRONG. But sometimes on the other end of the line the PO workers gets a crossed hair.

He marked them all Non machinable.

I mailed the next 3 envelopes today. Took them to the PO to get them hand cancelled. Sometimes they run them through the machine anyway.

CastleQueen5
03-06-2021, 01:14 PM
There were two standard items in most of the envelopes that I didnt put on the list. One was a 1/2 a heart, and the second was a random letter like a A or P on paper. I wasnt sure they were in each envelope, so I didnt put it on the list. I called it extras are extra. But I do think all of you got those 2 items.

I am glad all of the envelopes are arriving. You might find a 1/2 heart and an odd paper letter, in the envelope. They didnt make the list.

welcome home: roof=text from botanical page, calendar numbers, half circle from kit, door=red scrap paper (there is a surprise resident inside the door!)

club house: text, rabbit stamp from envelope, metallic paper hole enforcer. When I found the words "club" and "house", it reminded me of when I was a kid, my Dad made me and my brother a club house behind the tree grove on our property. When I got older, he converted it into a rabbit hutch for me.

I am so impressed. I am glad you found a way to use that calendar page so effectively. The red door scrap of paper is from a MR good Cents SuB sandwich bag. I tried to send One red, and two others. I am also so happy that you used the rabbit stamp from the envelope. I love the new Extra ounce stamps, vs those ugly patriotic men in hats.

You did some super great art. I love hosting these swaps to see how others use my TRASH. You make me look at it in new ways. I have plenty.

I love to see the use of those #19 stickers. They belong on medical charts and were given to me by a friend on Paperbackswap.com. She is mailing me some yellow 20s next.

I am glad you could use the coloring page. I am NOT into adult coloring. I dont care for how it turns out. I am not neat enough to stay in the lines. Yes, I know. We dont need to stay in the lines.

I was delighted and chuckled to see the use of the Trex from the letter I sent. I bought a pack of that paper at a yard sale for 50 cents. The package had 100 pages, so I have been trying to USE THEM UP!

I really enjoy coloring, but haven't done much lately since I have become addicted to diamond painting instead, so it was fun to do a quick coloring project! I used glitter gel pens which didn't scan nearly as bright as it in real life.

Have you guys noticed how insanely expensive "penny" sleeves are these days? It seems like I ordered 5 packs in my last order for maybe $11 from Amazon. They're already gone, though I did give away one pack. Today I ordered 10 packs for about $27 because that was the cheapest way to buy them. (Can't find them locally.) Hopefully that will last a LONG time! Some of the packs were $8 apiece! Is there a shortage or something? Or is everyone in the world working on their hobbies because they're at home a lot? Probably. :rolleyes::D

I love your houses, Plumhill.

I tend to have a mess of penny sleeves around here. I have never bought them. I have bought the baseball 9 sleeve items over and over. I go to the local baseball trading store. $20 for 100. They are sturdy.

It is nice to see your use of the green die cut piece. Obviously I had 19 or more of them. Not even sure WHERE I got those. I also like that you could use the two pieces that I painted or inked up. I thought those were beautiful. I created a bunch one day, and thought oh my how will I use all these.

First, I did NOT but in the rules that your Houses needed to be on firm backings. My mistake for presuming that is a standard. It is not right to enforce a rule I have not stated. I will confirm with moderators. If not using a firm backing and your house bends then you are really only trading decorated papers. Not cards.

Very nice houses, Chimerx. The use of the tiny game card with the moon landing image actually make me chuckle. It is nice to use the ancient images. I was not very fond of those images. I think I printed them out 10 years ago and they were in my stash/trash box. I was glad to cut them up and see if any of you can make some art. I really cant remember the reason for needing them all that time ago. I do remember it being a Yahoogroup. Do you remember yahoo groups?

I love that you listed what you used. I went and searched each house, and would GO "there it is!" You did a great job of using the stuff. The gold twist comes to mind, and the tissue box of the chimney.

My favorite is the green door house. I sure love green and my eyes graffitate towards it. My house door used to be green but when I replaced it, well it is now white.

I have to say the House #5 is my favorite. It has my favorite number 5, a bird, a sunflower and the advice to be happy, What more could a person want beside a cup of coffee, and a kitten?

That turtle house is also a joyful piece of art. Very good use of the frame with the turtle inside.

My chemo was a NO GO!. My blood level was too low.

But in good news, the cancer test called a CA125 came out 21, which is below the needed 35. One more low test like that, and I am closer to being labeled in remission.

I report next Monday for more blood tests, which I do every week anyway. If things look better, I will get chemo, but they are going to lower my dose to prevent the bad blood tests.

I did go to my oncology office today,

I AM HOME, no chemo today, my blood levels were too low. One went up to an acceptable level but one dropped even lower.



Hey in good news that CA 125 Test came back 21, so under the nec. 35 level.



It was confirmed that I will need more chemo ever OTHER week, and at a lower dose. Then a Cat scan to determine if they can label me "In Remission". ANd yes, a year of maintenance chemo since this is a pretty aggresive cancer that tends to return in 6 months time. Plus it had already traveled to other organs, but not my lymph nodes and not my bone marrow.

**** House shaped cards need to measure 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches approx, lets only do upright, vertical houses, not horizontal. Cards may not have items that extend beyond the side or TOP/ bottom margins., because the items get ruined in the envelope. I can not swap cards that are too big or too small. I will have to return them to you. I do mean approximate. I wont get on the cm, ruler out.


If you send me cards that I not the right size, I plan to trade them with other cards that are not the right size BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAA!

Hey, you all had some very nice and true things to say about the houses, but did you notice that they are houses on cards vs House-shaped cards. Are you willing to accept the houses as not house shaped? I like them too, so I had would have not issue with a house like that myself. I am talking mainly to the players who commented on specific houses they liked.

I am mailing them tomorrow and was looking at them and thinking maybe I could make some cuts to make them house shaped. I don't think it would work on every one and I don't have enough trash or time to do them over. I think I'll go ahead and send them and CQ if you don't think they fit with the swap, you can just keep them.

Thanks so, so much CQ. Also, thank you to everyone who receives one for understanding that I had a senior moment. It's not the first and I'm sure not the last. I'll just try to make very sure it's not on a swap.

Oh no!!! I am so sorry - the rules say "house shaped cards" and I put houses on cards. I looked through the thread and see that I am the only one who didn't seem to get this. I am mailing them tomorrow and was looking at them and thinking maybe I could make some cuts to make them house shaped. I don't think it would work on every one and I don't have enough trash or time to do them over. I think I'll go ahead and send them and CQ if you don't think they fit with the swap, you can just keep them. I am really sorry and this should have sunk in since I actually asked a specific question about the size earlier in the thread. Very senior moment and I will definitely get it right next time.

Don't worry Mollie - I LOVE your cards and was thinking what you did would make a good idea for a future swap! I really hope I get one!

CQ - I mailed my cards this morning. Again, sorry for the mix-up, and thank you's to everyone for being so agreeable regarding my "moment". So glad I'm in this group and that I get to swap with such talented and sweet people!

Who is up next for T2T #20?
I am starting to collect stuff but have lost tack of the T2T hosts list.

CastleQueen5
04-23-2021, 02:25 PM
I have the list saved my notepad here.

PREX is next

PREX 20
ksj1717 21

I know PREX has been getting her envelopes together.

I haven't even asked Ksj1717 about her turn.

Do you want to be next Javazarf, or you do you want to do a OFF shoot type of swap? There is room for some offshoot type of swaps. I might be doing an offshoot soon. I have too much Trash that I think can be turned into art cluttering up my craft room.

AngelJoy
04-23-2021, 02:38 PM
I can take a turn whenever a slot is available. I, too, have lots of trash just waiting to become art!

04-23-2021, 04:08 PM
CQ5 - I think I might do tags. Is that regular T2T swap or off shoot? If that is regular, put me down for slot 22.


By the way, I was looking through my gallery and finding some of my favorite swaps. One that you hosted was the one where you sent backgrounds. "Box of Bountiful Backgrounds Boomeranging Back"
Made me really think outside my comfort zone.

Oh I just found an entire shoe sized box of cards fronts that I saved. I was thinking about doing that again.

Tags are off shoots, and are posted in the mail art swaps. I do like to change up the shapes we trade. I liked the moo swap you did.

Your houses arrived. And you did forget the label, but I can clearly see the return address. So I can write it out myself.

You did also forget the reimbursement postage, as required, but I will live. I promise.

In todays mail was Haagmm's cards. so that is everyone. I will swap soon.

I will give everyone itrader and leave a personal message at the bottom of the itrader thanking you for the hostess card I picked, if one was offered. Thanks.

You cant see this well in this photo, but all the cards have a window over an area. These are super cute.

CastleQueen5
04-29-2021, 09:56 PM
This was a 4 for 4 swap. I am slowly going through all the envelopes. I am putting the address labels on the outgoing envelopes. I am giving You rocks, instead of leaving a message in the itrader message area, if you included a hostess choice. I think that way you wont miss my my thank you, if you dont read the message area.

So far so good. I am making progress. I have to do itraders, and stamp my return address on each envelope. And I still have to swap them.

nanvan
04-29-2021, 10:31 PM
Oh, CQ5 - I thought it was a 3:3! If it's 4:4, I didn't make an extra for YOU - I'm so sorry. That's the first time I didn't make a hostess card. I must read better next time! In the meantime, I think I will make you a house (won't have the trash but will make something just for you).

CastleQueen5
04-29-2021, 10:32 PM
It isnt a big deal, about the 4 for 4, I just wanted to make sure you knew why you would be getting 4 houses back. Everyone gets 4 houses back not 3.

CastleQueen5

04-30-2021, 05:52 PM
I am not upset, at all. The way I think about it, is that I enjoy the creating, and the collecting is just a side bonus. I love the whole thing, but I know when I die my kids will have no idea what to do with this collection of papers in 3 ring binders.

I just submitted T2T20 :wub:

Sorry and too tired, to check.


Hey I got these mailed. They go out Friday.


AND I HAVE NEWS. My son is right now in the running to get a LIVE Donor partner Transplant May 20th. YEs that soon. He needs to pass a dental exam this week, but that seems about all they need. He did blood work and a mouth Xray today.

Dentist appointment Friday and Wednesday. It is keeping my busy.

The Mayo Clinic cleared my son with an X-ray of their own for the dental. They still want him to go to the dentist Wednesday

Today we leave at 630 am to after 3 pm and he has a day of Mayo Clinic test and appointment, and a covid test. We did these same day of test and doctors visits back in Feb 2020. Then covid hit. He does another covid test May 18th and he get a LIVE kidney donation On May 20th. His live is going to change for the better.

I am his caregiver even though I am still doing chemo treatments every other week. I had one Yesterday. It will all work out.

I got tons of Itraders to look through, but it looks like the returns are arriving.

I have 15 envelopes for games people play and I want to do house shaped again. I has one old bingo card, that gasp would have to be cut up. Or copied then cut.

I thought about doing tags but they tend to be large and bulky and harder to mail.
So houses again it is. Posting the swap today.

local tray you can leave a visitor message.

BUT also If you look at your control panel. You can see The you rocks you received and the ones you sent. You have to scroll down to see your sent you rocks.

I have heard that you need 8 or maybe 10 other you rocks comments between players. You can count back and see how many you need to make to leave a you rock again for that player.

Is that clear as mud?
