Description:

This is a Type 3 swap and will be a lot of fun!

For this swap you will have 5 partners. To each partner you will send a handmade postcard of any medium. No ad or printed cards of any kind. This is a handmade item of any medium that your heart desires.

5 handmade postcards is not a small feat. Because of this the sign up date and send dates are longer than the usually swaps that I create. This is to attract as many participants as possible and to give you time to create great work. This is senders choice, obviously, but if you want to add a little charm you can scout out your partners and customize their interests.

This swap is 4.95 and higher. If you do not make the cut message me and we will talk. If you're new and would like to join, message me. I remember how hard it was to get in on the fun ones. I will ban as necessary and I can angel if needed, but as I always say: there will not be a need :) Also, if you see someone joined that you're concerned about let me know. I don't know a lot of people around here yet so I appreciate a heads up on trouble.

If you have any questions, ask! I LOVE handmade postcards and I hope we can muster a large turn out!! Pass on the word!!! Oh! and I would LOVE to do this internationally with 3 partners. If anyone would be interested in this please tell me and I will create it!

The postcards should be sent written on. Stamped and naked. When I had stated no printed cards I simply meant that they could not be remade or store-bought. You can take found images and turn them into an art piece but overall the postcard should have some effort of creating an art installment.

Yes, I'm interested in an international version of this swap!

once upon a time I found some ad pc at the second hand store (like 50 of them). They are beer coasters; so thick and nice (remind me of watercolor paper). I used gesso to coat one side so I could then decorate them as I see fit. The backside is still however printed on, the lines and a bit about sustainable beer or something. Could I then NOT use these?

I'm super interested, but what do you mean no PRINTED cards?

id do international!!!

Will these be sent naked and a message on them, or in envelope for our partner to use?

I would like to participate, but the only answer (mssge) to my question was "not homemade" which could be viewed many ways. I do not wish to have any of my swappers disappointed with PCs that I have myself printed and colored/painted BC the rules here were not clarified upon. Should I go ahead and send? Who here would opposed?

I am so sorry for all of the confusion and missed questions. I have delayed the swap another week, in hope to get more participants.

FRY- yes you can use them.

In the swap description you state the sign up and deadline is extra long because you will be making so many postcards....but right now, it's only a week....Is that correct? Thanks.

Oh goodness, I have been waiting for the names to be assigned so I can check profiles and start only to find it has been extended. I will just make cards and try and fit them to the receiver. I'm leaving on vacation and need to get them done early.

Please see extended dates to address question: In the swap description you state the sign up and deadline is extra long because you will be making so many postcards....but right now, it's only a week....Is that correct? Thanks.

Sorry for delay in response. I managed to survive a head on collision with a semi and have been in the hospital. Happy Swappin!

I'd love to join but darn not enough time to turn these out. Too quick of a swap turn-a-round. Look forward to the next one with longer times hopefully.
