ALPHA-2N..(OCTOBER).. ATC swap

Post by Guest on Sat 3 Oct 2009 - 20:47




October 2009
This is the continuation of our ALPHA-2 ATC swap
. . . . . . . . . . . . . Alphabetical ATC swap.
This months (October) title will be: ALPHA-2N. . . . . . folowed by ALPHA-O-P and so on.
This ALPHA-2 started in September 2008 and I will run this swap for the full alphabet.
Each month will have a 'Sign Up By Date' and a 'Get It To Me Date'.
To join in you will need to make 4 portrait style identical (or as near as possible) ATCs. . measuring 2.1/2" x 3.1/2" an International Size
Not just computer print-outs please, they must contain some crafting technique.

. . . . 'Sign-up by date'.. for ALPHA-2N = . . Friday October 16h
. . . . 'Get it to me Date' for ALPHA-2N = . . Monday October 26th (before the last Tuesday)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The reason for making 4 ATCs is, so that when your swaps returned you you will receive your own Number 1 of 4 (1/4) back each month and 3 of other peoples to collect. This gives us all chance to collect 4 complete alphabets whilst keeping a memento of our own Arty work to peruse for further ideas.
If you save the received swaps in a 9 pocket collectors page it is nice to able to view a 3 month swap on each page.

Steph that was a sneeky N - I always challenge myself to guess how the 'leter' applies. Good one Steph you won this time.

Di you must be seeing pink dots before youe eyes after completing your 'I LOVE' , ha ha that'll keep 'em guessing.

I realised after I had done them that two of them would have done
for next months Alpha O but will have to come up with something else.
Glad they arrived okay - obviously post still getting through ATM.

Am I too late to sign up for the 'N's? I'm really sorry I'm late the pooter updated itself to IE8 and eveything stopped working! (it picked up I was running an iffy copy of windows) it's still not right but it is working now, thank goodness.

No that's OK Amullree I'll add you. These PCs are a nuisance sometimes especially when we get 'cut off' .

Right-O mistyrat, I'll keep my eyes skinned.

Whilst this postal thingy is happening I am putting your POSTED DATES
up in the 1st message on here. in RED this way we can all keep tabs on our situation.

I will also aknowledge receipt of them on their arival day in the 1st message.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Have any of you got any ideas as to what date you would like me to keep them untill?

Please post your thoughts on this ALPHA-2 ATC swap TOPIC on here and not on the 'FULLER' topic.

If we keep the postal 'rubbish' talk on here it will be easier for all of us..

I really don't think we can plan anything at this stage.We need to play it by ear
and see how the strikes pan out. I heard there are more talks this coming week.

Think the only thing you can do Nona is hang on until the end of the week when either the 3 day strike will of happened and they say what's happening or they get themselves sorted and get back to doing their jobs. Someone seems to of used their head and got the temporary staff in quickly so hopefully things should be back to normal relatively quick.

You can't do the impossible Nona, and at the end of the day they're ATC's. A lot of crafty love in them no doubt, but not life support, we can all wait... a bit LOL
It should all be sorted within a couple of weeks shouldn't it?

One thought though Nona, a new list should be with the next pinky, we know the next letter and month obviously, but if there is much of a hold up could you put on here what the other theme is for the November ones. Then they will be able to get them ready to post whenever we get a chance.
