I personally am in heaven with the not being able to leave my house. But I know there are those out there that are going stir crazy. I am concerned about the lack of happy mail coming and going. I used to teach ART in our homeschool group. So I present...

AN ATC A DAY - Keep the Covid-19 shut-in crazies away. Just fun simple ATC challenges that spark creativity and cure the common boredom. This will be a series of 14 prompts/days (maybe longer)

For this swap you will have ONE partner in which you will send an ATC with the daily inspired art challenge.

The AAD prompt for today is: BOOK PAGE ART

For this you will create an art piece on a book page (like pictured). Topic is senders choice. You can search “Book Page Art” on Pinterest or Google for more ideas.


  • The ATC must be 2.5X3.5” (The size of a poker card)
  • Art can be presented Landscape or Portrait
  • Plastic sleeves are encouraged but not required
  • Book pages are NOT sturdy enough on their own, please be sure to adhere to a sturdy backing.
  • The Art work MUST be in the daily challenge style, whatever that may be. Anything other than the daily prompt DOES NOT meet the requirements.
  • On the back of the ATC you MUST write “ATC A DAY # , The Prompt, The Date and Your Name.”
  • Send on time with proper postage.

If you receive the requirements above please leave feed back according to Swap Bot Rules:

  • 5 - I got my stuff and it met the posted swap requirements.
  • 3 - I got my stuff, but it didn't meet the posted swap requirements. Please be patient with our postal services right now, and do not blame your partner for things that are clearly out of their control. Communication is key.
  • 1 - I never got anything.

I do not put a rating requirement, but I do go thru every profile prior to assigning. I will ban at my discretion. I look at past fumbles and current swaps. If you are new to swap bot I make sure you have a well filled out profile. Because of this I WILL ALWAYS ANGEL if necessary. If I have to angel for you, you will never be allowed in my swaps again, or any groups I admin.

I was only planning on doing 14 of these, if you would like me to do more, please comment below. So I know. Otherwise I will stop at 14.

I am not all that sad about being "quarantined" as well!! Lots of art time :) I would go for more than 14 if there's enough interest to make it worth your while. I am missing your handmade postcard with themes!! Love your swaps!!

I'm also enjoying these swaps. I haven't made all of them, I still have to work from home, but I'm doing as many as I have time for and would continue to do so. Aloha

I would like to take a week off, then do 14 more. This has been great fun. Or maybe do them every other day instead of every day.

I just worry about whether or not getting mail can be a problem with this virus transmitting. Being in the age group to be careful, I am. I really miss doing swapping though. Maybe just washing hands before and after sending and receiving? It goes through a lot of hands though.

I'd like a combination of these ideas. Take a week off, then come back with 14 more, but every other day. I missed the first half of these, so I don't know the prompts for those. I like these last ideas. Although, I don't see one for #14. What's that one?

craftykathy1 03/28/2020 #

Actually, I don't see one for #12 either. 😖

Don't worry ladydy5 the postal workers are wearing gloves.

I missed out on a lot of the prompts....is there some place where they are all listed?

Autist 04/ 2/2020 #

@Athena58 Message me and I can share them with you.

I would sign up for these but I don't know when they could be mailed. I must stay at home due to my cancer and I never know when my husband will be going out. I live in a retirement community and we don't have individual mailboxes at our houses. Wish there was more time in which to send them...

Does it need to be a book page or can it be a magazine page too?
