About Me

4/7/18 Kinda slowing down. I'm committed to finishing my alphebet ATC series. I only host or join swaps where I already have things made for. I DO NOT join a swap where I don't already have the item made it a don't have the supplies to make it.

I think my life should straighten out after May. I'm involved with evicting a tenant and the jerk just wants to make things hard in top of the fact I had to beg for rent. Sometimes I hate people. Revamping my profile.....

Swaps I'm regularly hosting

I just started the alphebet ATC series

Newbie and beginner friendly ATC

9 random inchies

Adult coloring page atc

4 random twinchies

5/5 ATC

_________ atc inside and out (decorated envie and ATC)

A message about swaps I host.

I try very hard to weed out flakers and drama. But sometimes things get past me. I will Angel if needed, maybe not with the exact theme of the swap, but I will send out something to cover your trouble. Remember snail mail is not instant mail and from USA to other countries can take more than 2 weeks.

I really love swapping and do not want any drama, I just want to trade art. So I will avoid swaps where I know problem swappers have joined.

Pet peeves: please do not steal my swaps. I have tried to come up with unique ideas. If you want to host a swap international that I'm only hosting in USA that's fine but do not copy and paste and use my same title. I just don't think it's in good taste to do this and I always say " how would you like it done to you".


Deffinition ATC

Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Wish list items

address labels.

Lace ribbon or remnants.

Book page with foriegn text

Cancelled postage

I really don't need the extras and don't factor them in to much into my rating. I can give 💓 just as easily without the extras.

Actually you just putting time and effort into a swap is fantastic.

Themes, send and rate

Owls, birds, cats, vintage, tasteful nudes, graphics 45, Tim holtz, distressed.

I'm not interested in: Asian, crude, horror, clowns, kawaii, anime. (As "crude" I'm talking more hard core in your face stuff) I don't mind a dirty word on a card if that's the theme I've signed up for.

I send within 1-3 days of partners being assigned. I rate a minimum of 2x per week.

I take all mail to the blue box! I check in daily here, but if you message me about a swap and you see I've not read it yet, please email me at candyn29@gmail.com please put swapbot in the subject line.

Pocket Letters

Please do not feel the need to send me coffee or tea in my pocket letters,I do not drink them, also no need to write a long letter, just do the same as you would with any other swap, a short note is fine.

About Me

Risque swaps

I like most forms of humor. Vintage tasteful nudes. Funny memes. Thought provoking cards. Swear words are fine. I like holidays. You will not offend me if you send me a religious ATC , you will not offend me if you send me a pegan themed ATC. I like to learn about different religions and ideas, I have studied some of Wiccan and peganism. I've

You will offend me if you just don't send.

Not you again

This is my do not swap list. It's super secret. I have it written down by my art table. I don't really like calling it people publicly.

But if you know if a dirty swapper please pm me.
