    December 2016 Postcard Swap

    Sign ups Begin 11-14-16
    Sign ups End 11-28-16
    Names will be assigned 12-1-16
    Deadline to mail 12-20-16

    This swap is for ONE Fabric Postcard.
    *Cards must be appx. 4 x 6
    *Must, predominantly be sewed and/quilted. Paint and embellishment's are nice. (The icing on the cake.) But, this swap is for a sewn and quilted card. Embroidery by hand or machine is also welcome.
    *Have some type of finished edge.

    Be creative, try out new skills, play with embellishments, etc. Have fun! Google or Pinterest fabric postcards for lots of "eye candy" and/ or tutorials.

    THEME: Happy Birthday! (To celebrate each Birthday that has passed and, each one to come. Tailor it to suit your partner. Let them know there birth day is always special!) That they are thought about. (A lot of people don't have anyone to celebrate their day with.) This does not have to be a traditional Birthday card. Really personalize it to fit your partner.


    To sign up: Please PM me with your ......
    *QB Screen Name
    *Real Name
    *Address
    *Can you mail International?
    *This is for my records only.
    *Please PM each other to exchange addresses. PM's only for your safety and privacy

    The rules are simple. You will pm me when you mail your postcard off and when you receive your postcard. And, you will afford your partner the same courtesy. You will mail your postcard with the correct postage. If in doubt, have it weighed by the post office. And please, make sure your name address, and board name and your partners name and address are on the back of the postcard.

    ****Please note some changes to the rules.****


    Ladies, this is my last month in the swap as Swap Hostess. CookieZenmilk will be taking over in January. Be looking for the January signups mid December. I will see you there.

    Please sign me up Judith. I will also be taking a break from the swaps in the New Year as next year is looking like a very busy one for us. Not that every year is busy but we are planning to take some time to do some travelling and a we are planning to paint the interior of our house (we will have a contractor, but that still involves a lot when you are living in the house). Business is also shaping up to be busy and that with minding my grandsons for a week at a time throughout the year I don't believe there will be too much spare time.

    I have had an incredible journey in the Postcard Swap. Here are ALL the cards I've received in the last 2 years. Sometimes, I had more then 1 partner. And, several are from side swaps that I've done. All bring a smile to my face. I look forward to seeing what themes Cookie comes up with. I look forward to continuing to pushing myself artistically.



    Someone asked for ideas on displaying your cards. Since my sewing room is in our sunroom, I can't put any holes in the walls. One wall is actually the back side of our house. And, the other 3 walls are completely windowed. So, I actually use a tension rod in the window of the back side of my house. I use the Drapery Pinch clips to hang them. I actually need to buy some more clips. I wish I could use the system from IKEA instead. Where you install the ends and use the clips on a wire. But, it is a mute point. So, what I have does work. I also keep them in a pretty box when I change out the art on my window wall.

    I'm in again!

    I've only started swaps recently, but I really appreciate the work you've done as host. You have quite the collection!
    It's fun to be part of something like this, getting that little postcard in the mail can brighten the day.
    If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough!
