Costs of mailing are getting higher all the time. I propose "hosting" a swap so that each person only needs to pay for 2 envelopes (one each way) yet will "trade" with several people. To keep mailing manageable, it would help if we all sent the SAME SIZE thing. So...
I invite each of you to make a few ATC-size cards (2.5x3.5 inches or 64x89 mm) and send them to me WITH a large label showing your return address and LOOSE stamps at least equal to what you spent to mail your ATCs in. (US stamps, please; or $ if from overseas; or email me if you can't get either US stamps or US money.) I'll provide the envelope -- since some cards may be thicker than others. Please make at least a few (minimum of 6?) and not too many (maximum of 12?) and be sure I get them to me by the END OF MAY. I'll swap them out in mid-June and send you each back a packet with as many Cat ATCs as you sent in. (ATC= Artist Trading Card)
What say? Care to make mini-kitty-cards and trade them?

did anything ever happen with this ?
No one replied here.
No one sent anything.
I wasn't sure this forum was still even active.
Would YOU like to swap 2 cat ATCs with me?

i will swap 1 cat ATC with you. They are original paintings.
Not to worry yet It's holiday time; people are slow to sign up,generally; some of us don't make ATCs.
However, yours would be a good swap to start with. Wishing you good turnout for fetching cat call.
Hi Lois, I'm interested but am new to ATC exchanges. When you say, make 6 cards, do you mean 6 different images or 6 copies of one image?
Since the original thread (started in Jan 2013) got ZERO response for eleven months, I don't think the swap will ever actually happen. My idea was for each participant to send in 6 cards so that we'd each get 6 responses with only one mailing. As to WHAT your 6 ATCs are, they could be hand drawn, collaged, or digital -- it's all fine with me! The only thing I think would not be good is photocopying an original.
If you want to trade directly, I'd be pleased to send you from one to three ATCs personally. (I do both digital cards and hand-made ones.)
I'm so sorry I've been so slow to reply! I would LOVE to swap kitty postcards with ANYONE! Here's my address:
