Even though I'm not a Christian, my favorite holiday of the year is Christmas - I love the music, the lights, the decorations, and the peace and good cheer that seem to abound.

For this swap, you will send two (2) ATCs to each of your three (3) partners for a total of six (6) ATCs.

If you're new to ATCs, they're miniature works of art created on a sturdy base (thick cardstock, cardboard, chipboard, matboard, etc) and they measure 2.5" x 3.5".

Each ATC must somehow relate to Christmas (think nativity scenes, Christmas trees, Santa, reindeer, peace doves, stockings, candy canes, tree ornaments, poinsettias, holiday lights, etc).

Please do NOT send two (2) identical ATCs to the same partner (you may, however, send identical ATCs to different partners).

And please do NOT simply use a patterned piece of paper with a sticker thrown on top and call it a finished ATC - we want to see your best work, your creative use of materials, your ATC that's as nice as the one you hope to get in return. "SEND ONTO OTHERS AS YOU WISH TO BE SENT TO!" :-)

This swap is international due to the low postage cost to mail two (2) ATCs in an envelope.

You must have a completely filled out profile to join this swap (c'mon - fill it out! We want to get to know you!), as well as a perfect rating of 5 (if you think that you've been unfairly rated, PM me and we'll talk).

Sorry, NO NEWBIES for this one - you must have a minimum of ten (10) completed mailed-out (not emailed) swaps to participate in this. I'm sorry if you think that's unfair, but you're more than welcome to re-create this swap as your own and gear it towards newbies (you can even cut & paste it verbatim with my blessings).

I will review all profiles prior to assigning partners, so if you look even the tiniest bit suspicious, I'll PM you before removing you. I DO reserve the right to remove anyone whom I believe to be a potential flaker (you know who you are!).

I'll happily angel for any flakers, but I'll also broadcast ALL flakers' names on the forums, so don't even THINK of joining and then telling me some unbelievable sob story about a catastrophe that's afflicted you & your family. As much as I'd like to give flakers the benefit of the doubt, I've been screwed too many times to believe anyone's sob stories anymore. So just don't join if you can't follow through, okay? Enough said about THAT...

Most importantly? Be creative and HAVE FUN! :-)

I wish the due date was in Aug as my July is getting out of hand.
