This swap is a "senders choice" and will be a standard ATC (2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches) on quality cardboard (you should not be able to bend into a U).

What does the month of JANUARY mean to you? Dreary winter weather? Snow? Skiing? NEW YEAR! short days, long nights? vacation? ~Use your imagination~. The only requirement is that the month of "JANUARY" should be included on your card (small lettering, large, whatever you choose, but to help keep the months straight (this will be a continuing series!). Update: you may abbreviate the month as JAN --I personally like it spelled out, but for the sake of space saving, feel free to abbreviate.

You will send 1 ATC to 1 partner. This is the 8th in the series but you should feel free to jump in at any point -- the series will be a month by month theme. I have loved hosting, and have received wonderful cards in return.

You must have 10 type 2 or 3 swaps with positive ratings, no recent 1s or 3s.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS A USA-ONLY SWAP. (I try to carefully screen but have missed the "country" setting. In the interest of keeping postage down, I am only hosting USA swaps currently)

If you have any questions or comments, please message me.

Is it too late to join this swap?

I like to recycle items, so I do have cardboard and old playing cards that I like to use as backgrounds for my ATCs, but unfortunately I just tested them and they all can be bent into a U shape. That's disappointing. I guess I won't be able to join your monthly swaps then since that is a requirement. (I don't want to get a poor rating!) They seemed interesting too. Happy swapping to the joiners.

I am leaving this swap because ATC means artist trading cards-acid free, good artists paper, like watercolor paper or pastel paper, heavy card stock, etc. I apologize because I really wanted to get into trading ATCs. I wish I had noticed this before.

Can I send more than one card? I made a set of three for the month of January before I signed up for his swap. I’d like to keep them together.
