This swap is part of a four-part series featuring the four elements: fire, water, wind and earth. At the end of them, you'll have a set of four ATCs from four different people.

The swaps will be two weeks apart.

For this swap, create an ATC with a "fire" theme! Whether it's a campfire, match, candle, or something completely different...make sure your ATC celebrates the element of fire.

In this swap you will create 1 ATC for 1 partner.

Newcomers and beginners are welcome, but please have a nicely filled-out profile. All others must have a rating of 4.8 or above, or have no 1s or 3s in the last year.

Please make something that you would enjoy seeing in your mailbox.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Above all - have fun!

Happy Swapping,

I just made my ATC and it is my first and here is my question-it is mixed media and I used oil pastels-should I seal it or leave it be? I am not sure what is acceptable for an ATC. Thank you so much!

j2fabfunk - considering the bumping and jumping around it's likely to go through when the USPS is handling it, I would go for sealing.

Would someone be willing to do a One-on-One swap for a Fire ATC? I missed the sign up deadline due to crazy work situation and I'd love to do them all.

Hi there I signed up for this swap and was awaiting my partner. Can someone plz tell me when we get our partners name Thank you Samantha

sammyclaire 08/ 3/2009 #

Hi barbara, I had a problem with my email, I have a new one now so can you please send my partners names to my updated email. Thank you Samantha countrygil68au

barbaraSTL 08/ 3/2009 #

Samantha - The partners are not sent by email. Just look at the box in the upper right hand corner. There's a selection that says "See the partners you send to." That info will be available any time you sign on. :)

hi barbara, for some reason, it is not showing me the swap in my dashboard, and when I access the page for the swap it only shows me the basic page, it doesnt allow me to see who participates, and who my partner is. I did sign up for the swap but I am having trouble with swap-bot, this is the 3rd swap I have joined and confirmed joining and then wont let me see anything. I cant even reply to any messages. Is there any way u can contact me with partners details plz. I have my atc ready to send Thank you for your patience Samantha

barbaraSTL 08/ 4/2009 #

Samantha - I have no record of you being on the list for this swap, so there are no partners assigned to you.
