Just a reminder for those of you who are joining the ATC swap -- the deadline for mailing your four cards is this coming Saturday, September 15, 2018.

If you still want to participate and need my address, please send me a message by SparkMail and I'll get my address to you.

Thanks! Louise

(This message has been posted on other team sites. I apologize for the duplication.)

Hi, Everyone!

I hope you saw that F8CONE8 had posted a notice about extending the deadline for our Summertime ATC Swap. I apologize for having to change the date. The new date to have your cards mailed is September 15, 2018.

I live in Texas and came to Oklahoma on August 12 for my aunt's 92nd birthday celebration. The day after her birthday, and the day I had planned to go back to Texas, she was hospitalized with pneumonia. I serve as her healthcare guardian and right now I am her only caregiver, so I have stayed with her and am still here in Oklahoma. She was released from the hospital and doing fine, but then had to go back into the hospital to receive platelets this past Sunday. We're back at her home now, and each day she is getting stronger.

So --- I appreciate Carol (F8CONE8) posting notices that the swap deadline would be extended. I am in a very small town in northeast Oklahoma, and the internet service and telephone service here leaves a lot to be desired. I can connect with SparkPeople sometimes, and when I have had free time to get on my computer I have had trouble posting because I keep losing the connection. Right now it's working!

I will contact our participants soon by SparkMail with my home address. So sorry I have not been able to be in contact with each of you sooner! I have not made my ATCs yet, but I will work on them as soon as I get home so that I can swap, too. So there is still time for anyone else to join this swap if you find you can work it in now!

Thanks in advance for your patience.
Louise

We're joining the SparkPeople Artists' team for this swap. Here's the deal:

ImprovingMe (Louise) is the host for this August 2018 ATC (Artist Trading Card) exchange. The idea is that you create, trade, and collect them, like sports trading cards.
Who else wants in? emoticon

Theme: Summertime (Anything goes with this swap. Colors or images that feel like summer to you.)
Number of Cards: 4 (Can all be the same, or different.)
Date to Mail (with SASE): August 28, 2018

Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) are:
- your art
- any surface as long as it's thin, somewhat flat, and can easily fit in an envelope.
- size 2.5"x3.5" or 3.5"x2.5" (yes, inches, like a baseball card)
- any medium

On back of ATC, include:
- your Spark name
- your real name
- title or theme
- medium
- edition numbers, date, etc.
- your contact information or email address (optional)

Here's how the SparkPeople Artist Team ATC exchange works:
- One person "hosts" by picking a simple topic, the number of cards to create, and the deadline.
- You sign up for a round by responding to this message thread.
- The host sends you her/his address by SparkMail.
- You send your cards to the host by the deadline, along with a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope).
- The host then sends out the collected cards to other SP artists who are participating in the round.

We hope you'll join us!
