Swap Anyone?

Greetings Fellow Bloggers! I was home today with my son who has been sick for the past week. Today was my day. My sister in law stayed with him on Mon and Tue, my wife on Wed. Gotta love daycare to bring home and share all those nice germies!

While he was down for the count I did manage to get some things done on the crafty side of things. I ordered some paper items from Brambleberry Lane last week and they arrived in the mail yesterday. They have such a neat selection of items in their shop. And the best part is they are also in upstate NY so I get my goodies FAST!

I wanted to try my hand at ATC cards. Here's what I managed to come up with. The German glitter glass was flying everywhere! My wife already snagged one for her desk at work. Anyone interested in swapping cards for Valentine's? I would LOVE it if you dropped me a note. This is an unorganized, no pressure swap. One on one.

I LOVE GETTING MAIL - My address is: Catskill Country Cupboard - 131 Main Street, Delhi, NY 13753. ryanwalsh at stny dot rr dot com


  1. When would they be due by? Is this one on one or would we be making enough for a whole group? I have so many questions! lol I'd be happy to do a card trade with ya, just need to know more details. :)

  2. Hey Kristie!

    I haven't had ANY experience with running my own swap as of this moment. I was thinking this would be a 1 on 1 swap. I would send them a card if they wanted to send me one.

    Nothing official, no pressure. =)

  3. Well alrighty then, that is totally doable! I've got your addy thanks to our trade on etsy.
    I've got these fab papers from Basic Grey called Bittersweet
    that I am just dying to use!
    Watch your mailbox.

  4. Kristie

    Convo me on etsy with your addy again. I am such a nerd when it comes to my inbox. I think I may have deleted our trade convo with your address. My wife is just laughing at me nodding... I am such a neat freak. =)

  5. Ryan,
    Go to (your etsy), then sold items, then click on what you sent me, then (view receipt), my address will be there. :)

  6. I also am interested in trading, as long as what you've made is "standard" ATC size (you'd be surprised by what passes as ATC/ACEO that aren't the correct 3.5 x 2.5.) Take a look at my etsy shop, see if there is anything you'd like yourself.


  7. The chipboard bases I used are all 3.5 x 2.5 with rounded corners.

    Kristie - thanks for that etsy tip! I'll shoot one off to you tomorrow!

    Aloquin - I'd love to swap! Nice etsy shop! Surprise me.

    Also, from someone who is new at collecting ATCs (these two will be my firsts) how do you store them/display them?


  8. My husband bought me a binder, and I use baseball card sleeves in there. There are probably other ways, too... check out for helpful tips!

  9. Thanks for that link and the display/storage tip Aloquin.

    I need your address to send the ATC to. You can convo me at etsy ( Mine I attached to the post.

    Have a great day everyone!
