Heads up for the Postcard and Pony Friends swappers: Paradise&Texlovr26 has had to pull out. I know I heard a few people were saying they were making cards for people this time, so I just wanted to forewarn you (if it's not too late!) not to designate one for her. ;)

Starrby, they were great -- they actually arrived today! :eek:k:

Next week is midterms for me, so I might not make updates in the thread. Just watch that second post for when your cards start trickling in.

ugh... I still hate my mailman lol. This is completely off topic, because I haven't mailed my ATCs yet- but I tried to send a letter to my sister yesterday. Silly me, I left it in my mailbox for the mailman to take and he frickin left it there!

*sigh*
So rest assured, when I do send them it will be from the post office lol

I'm busy working on both my rainbow and Postcards, they're likely going to head out together since they are supposed to arrive at the same time.

I'm right with LadyPhoenix though, this is my midterms and I've got several ridiculously heavy projects to complete and work on. Sadly as much as I adore art my school stuff must come first. This is my graduating (for my bachelors!) semester and it's been killing me! So If I am quite you all know why!

I got my rainbow cards done. I remembered I had a How to draw MLP book that my friend gave me a few years ago so I was able to trace those instead of trying to come up with my own.

I've got all 5 postcards sketched out, I just need to ink and color them now. I should be doing that..... And I've got 4 of the pony friends sketched out and the rest planned out, I just need to get drawing. I'm gonna save the Rainbow cards till I'm finished with the post cards before sending them out. It'll save on time a little.

Just checking in boss, the rainbow cards are done, I repeat the rainbow cards are done. I'm almost done the postcards. I want to send them all together. :)

Sucks to hear about the drop out. :(

Slight setback with my son being sick with strep throat and my other RL commitments. hitting me hard. I will be working on them for the next few days. I have a couple of ideas for the postcards, but haven't got anything definite. I might ask my artist daughter to help me a bit.

Question for LP- When making digital copies, do you want each one scanned seperately or can I scan them all together? Which would be best/easiest?

'K. Got all my postcards done :) Hopefully I'll have the ambition to get the others finised up tomorrow. I just need to borrow a printer for the lineart cards.

Come on y'all! You can do it! Keep it up! Gooooooooooo TEAM! Other encouraging statements!

...needless to say, I'm super excited for this swap. ^_^; In anticipation of my first ATCs, where would be a good place to find (and buy) those plastic pages that have the correct sized pockets for them?
You can find 'em at Toys R Us :) Wal Mart may have 'em, but I've never been able to find 'em there. :p

Starrby, I order mine through my favorite card shop online, Marchant Cards (those of you looking for storage for your postcards should check out the 4 pocket sheets). I like the heavy duty ones best -- Ultra Pro are my favorites. I've been collecting cards for...entirely too long now! But they will hold up to at least fifteen years of fondling without tearing. ^_^

I just wanted to mention that while I am working on my cards diligently that they are likely to be simpler than my last cards and I might be a bit late with mine.

I've had some truly terrifying migraines all week long and they just aren't going away at all. So I'm having to work through the cards as best as I can... when I can. Right now I can barely get class work done let alone other stuff. (AND I still have the migraines, the meds I have are dulling them but not stopping them or blocking the pain completely and staring at a computer screen isn't helping.)

Sorry about this guys. I'm working on them but it's been going a lot slower all week long. I really just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

Thanks for the check ins, everyone! I need to look at the list one more time and send out a couple reminder PMs if I haven't heard from you in the thread, but a quick reminder:

1. Postcards and rainbow cards are due to mail out in just a little over a week.
2. If your physical cards don't make it here on time, I'll be sending out some PMs on Friday afternoon.
3. I *may* have to push the shipping deadline on my end back a day or two. It won't be longer than that. I'm just trying to consolidate work and fun mailings to reduce the trips I have to make to the post office. :cat_5:
