    mixed results - Mail Art leftovers. Due: September 6

    Due date: September 6
    postage for non-Australians: August 2
    I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! Mail is getting back to closer to normal but, with reduced international flights, I would still suggest you allow at least 5 weeks.
    cards: 3:3 or 6:6
    1 card is: 4 Inchies OR 2 Twinchies OR 2 Moos OR 1 ATCoin.
    I will try to swap what you send in but be prepared to receive a mixture of all types of Mail Art.
    participants: unlimited
    media: any and all

    Feel free to send in all 1 type of Mail Art or a mixture of types but I will be swapping them as:
    4 Inchies = 2 Twinchies = 2 Moos = 1 ATCoin



    Depending on what I receive you may not receive ANY of the type of Mail Art that you send in - for example, if you send in 6 Moos but no-one else sends in any Moos. You would then receive Inchies/ Twinchies/ ATCoins in your returns using the above formula.

    Post to the thread to sign up or you can't get Rep points.

    PM me for my address when you are ready to mail - if you have an address in Robina, I am still there.

    Postage:
    Australian players: please include a $1.10 stamp
    International players: unfortunately Australian international postage has gone up to at least $3.40 so I must ask for a well hidden US$2 or a Global Forever stamp

    ALL players please include a LARGE address label (AT LEAST 2" x2"), I will supply envelopes. Please do NOT send those 3-in-a-row sleeves - they do not fit in my envelopes.

    1. Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your creations (so you can get fun Rep points) and on the back of your mailing envelope. I am running a few swaps and do not want to put you with the wrong returns.

    2. please mail early to allow time to reach Australia.

    3. An extra card for the Host is greatly appreciated but is not required.

    4. I will give iTrader feedback when I receive your cards and will also update this post showing that your cards have been received. In return I encourage you to give iTrader Host feedback to me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points to the artists whose cards you receive. After all, knowing where your cards went is half the fun I think.

    Sign me up! I failed to complete the rainbow moos so I have those and I can see what other items are good enough.

    LeeBeth - mail art is anything that is not an ATC. I have listed Inchies (1" x1"), Twinchies (2" x2"), Moos (1" x2.75") and ATCoins (2.5" circle) but I am happy to try to work with other sizes.

    welcome to our new players - Haagmm and NancyL

    somnia
    - I look forward to seeing your experiments. Inchies and Twinchies allow you to have a quick play without wasting too much paper or time - I find Moos and ATCoins very enjoyable too , for the same reasons.

    I sent all the little ones out last week...I forgot to let you know but they have a long lead time. There are enough for 6:6 and Donnacr can keep or share however she sees fit. The collection is one coin, 6 moos and 3 cards of inchies. One is a rinchie so it can be an extra. At least I started getting my inchies somewhat organized. I tried to put them together based on color.
    I usually do inchies after finishing a swap or athon. The scraps often say something to me and they come together...so you may recognize some of the patterns or items from previous cards.
