Welcome 2017!

Send your one partner a store bought pc that has art as the main focus, sent naked (written on and stamped) in the theme of the week. Send an art pc that depicts CHINESE or LUNAR NEW YEAR in some ARTSY way. This could be showing the celebration, showing a lion dance, dragon dance, foods eaten, etc. It will be year of the rooster do you can also send an artsy rooster or chicken. Postcards can be from a Chinatown ( thus slightly touristy) if the main image pertains to the new year in some way.

Choose an art PC from your stash or a new shopping adventure. Hoping everyone is in a pleasant mood and plays nicely! Communication and chance for resend is obviously expected before a 3 rating.

4 CHINESE or LUNAR NEW YEAR or ROOSTER, CHICKEN

No handmade, no ad/free postcards.

Postcards can be store bought, museum bought, from a postcard box set, postcard perforated book set (neatly removed but may still contain perforated edge), from a postcard themed calendar (I bought a few of these in Germany, not sure if they are popular anywhere else? Cut neatly, of course) new or vintage. Zazzle and the like are also acceptable. Art can be drawing, illustration, painting, sculpture, design, photograph, collage, objet d'art, etc. It doesn't only have to be art from a museum it can be crafts, tiles, architecture, magazine and Book covers, movies, educational posters, other posters, children's book illustrations, reproduction. Vintage ads, etc. Some themes will be specific, such as lady, but. You can send abstract art if you can tell it represents lady/woman or if the title of the piece implies it. Other weeks the topic will be things like blue, or happy, or even a specific type of art or something about the artist. Art can be religious art-any religion and as this is sender's choice only sign up if you are open to receiving religious art. I know I have some to send I've bought in Church and Synagogue gift stores as well as in museums.

Besides museums, bookstores, you can find interesting art pc sets on Amazon, I know in Europe many church gift. Shops/counters sell artsy pcs. Either showing the inside or outside of the church. And sometimes pcs of the religious works in the church or of saints, etc.

International, 4.98, no unrated swappers, all 1's & 3's explained/responded to/working on and I reserve the right to remove swappers if needed. Please only sign up if you're open to receiving a variety of art types as explained above, knowing some may be a bit different. I will angel if you need to rate your partner a 1 - contact me if that is happening. If I need to angel I will try my best to stay on theme but if I have no more that fit the theme I will do profile surprise art card as the angel the best I can.

With my ideas and suggestions I have themes through July 14! So if you have an idea, hold onto it for now and I'll ask for ideas as the summer gets closer.
