The first one gained a lot of interest so I'm going to continue the theme until I feel I'm no longer a beginner!

I'm going to give this one a broad theme of "animals" it can be based around any animal.

You do not HAVE to be a beginner but you should be aware you may receive an ATC from an inexperienced crafter. Of course I still expect people to try their hardest and put some effort into it. An ATC with a sticker or 2 on is not acceptable!

I will again give you 10 days past the swap deadline so that you have plenty of time from now until then to make your ATC. It does not have to be profile based so you can make these in advance if you want.

I reserve the right to remove people if I think you may flake, and of course unrated people are welcome as it's for beginners. Please fill out your profile well and make it look like you want to be here long term, it helps! If you have any bad ratings please try to explain them. I will always look at reasons behind bad ratings, if you haven't even bothered to explain why they are there you will more than likely be banned to protect other users.

I missed the first one since I was in the hospital having my baby (she's in the NICU). Since this is a series would anyone be willing to do a private swap with me for #1? I've only been making ATCs for a month so I'm still learning and I don't expect perfection.

I think the first one was just an anything swap.

@BleedingBlack I hope your daughter is going to be ok.

@BleedingBlack -- I did the first one, but we can do a private makeup if you want, Caye.

@creativesort -- The first one had no set parameters really, just make an ATC, make it profile based if you so chose, but it didn't have to be. It was really fun and great if you're a beginner, because no one that joined would be going, Oh, well, that's just mediocre.

@mummy1985 -- he first one was a blast! I'm in again!

@Karmi53 -- I did the first, but I'd be willing to do a private swap with you for it as well.

I would like to know my partners favorite animal when they are assigned if it's not already posted in their profile. This is going to be my very first ATC ever made and I'm excited! My favorite animal is in my profile, well my top 5, but I love allll animals and just want my partner to be creative and have fun with this! I can't wait to receive my first ATC!

I cannot tell you how excited I was to find this website. This is my very first swap, and my very first ATC. I don't care what card I get, it's all about the mystery of the thing!

@poonwugget - That's what is so exciting, is the mystery. This is also my first swap too. I signed up also for a knitting and crochet one as well. I like you was so happy to find this website.

I'm so glad that websites like this exist. It helps artists like me continue to do art when they feel like they are blank and cant come up with anything to do. It really helps when I have a catagory to work with because it really helps me with having something to do in relation to art. I'm glad I finally took the time to now actually join and do this, because I've been watching this website for over a year now trying to decide if I was ready to place myself into something that I would have to commit to so as to not disappoint a waiting person. I usually don't work well with forced things, but really when it comes down to it, it's not forced because I chose what I wanted to do and something I feel like I'll enjoy doing. I can't wait to see who my partner is so that I can get started! Everyone have fun with this!
