Ok. I get the gist of things around here. I love it. LOVE it.
This will be my first official swap-as-host. YAY!

I was inspired by being a part of this year's international mixed media postcard swap, and after completing my first successful ATC recently, I thought that combining these two components and adding a magnet would make for an awesome swap!


  1. Create 1 ATC (2.5 inches X 3.5 inches) for 1 partner.

  2. ATC must have a magnet on the back (along with the date/your name—be sure that the swapname/username is either included in the mailing or is on the ATC itself). (The magnet should hold up the ATC so it can hang on someone’s fridge or magnetic board or locker without falling down.)

  3. ATC has to have at least TWO types of media. Some suggestions (but go with what you LOVE to work with!):

crayon and paint

watercolors and fabric

collage and paint

photography and ink

scrapbook style and paint

embroidery and ink

Seriously, the possibilities are endless—just be creative, and make something you’d want to get in the mail yourself.

While it doesn’t hurt to look at your partner's profile (why would you want to send a bunch of pink fluffy bunnies to someone who only really likes black wildebeests?—you know what I mean), please rate your partner a five if the three swap requirements are met.

Because of the extra weight with postage, I am keeping this in the US, but if there is interest, I’ll set up an international one next month!

I am opening this up to new swappers, as long as your profile is detailed (at least four paragraphs) I will not accept anyone who has received a 1 in the last 6 months.

I allowed for plenty of time for creating and making your piece awesome, please don’t be a flaker—sign up if you plan on following through!!

If you have any questions, please message me or leave a message below and I will get back to you ASAP!

I am super excited about this!!! YAY!

P.S. I will angel, but I hope that I won't have to. Please just make sure you are communicating with your partner (and me if needed!) if things are going awry!

I'd love to part of an international one.

Love this idea

I wish there were more handmade magnet swaps on here. Since right now I'm unemployed (non-paid medical leave). I have a ton of supplies I can use to make magnets, just no money to buy pre-made magnets.

And wouldn't someone want a one of a kind magnet instead of mass produced?
