experience for me, and has opened
an incredible amount of opportunities,

Are you ready?

Here we are, 
September and October's
ATC Swaps all done,
Halloween is almost
and the Holidays are
just around the corner!

I put the question to you
here on the Blog
and on Facebook
about another 
ATC Swap 
to Finish up this
Years ATC Swaps
here on 
Birdnuts Mixed Media...
and I heard the yells!!!

It has been a 
Year of ATC Swaps 
and what an
Incredible Variety
of Talented Artists
You all are!!
I Thank You all 
for a Wonderful turnout
each and every month!!!

So I thought I would switch things 
up a bit
to make this Year's 
Last ATC Swap
a little different:)

As you all know
there have been chronic
mailing issues here locally,
and seems regionally, which
I've taken into consideration
with this Swap.
Also being the Holiday Season,
we all have little funds for extras
with the 
Holiday Shopping Season
about to start:)

Starting now, 
October 23rd, 2012
( and yes, Halloween
in next week, my Fav!)
with a 
Deadline for Mailing
to me of 
November 15th, 
the Postal Service here, 
States that 
November 15th, 
will make
sure for delivery 
before Christmas!
(can you believe that!!!)

November and December's
ATC Swap

'Seasons Greetings'

1 ATC Made and Mailed
out before November 15th, 2012!

As in previous ATC Swaps
here on Birdnuts Mixed Media,
Email a picture of your ATC
to me to be Entered:)

In your Email, make sure you
send with the picture any
Links for a Shout Out
Blog Post to help Promote
all of your Shops and Web Sites!
And your Mailing address for
me to send you an ATC Made
by me:)

And as you can see,
I've already started!!! HA!!!

I'm hoping that having 
just 1 ATC to mail out
back and forth might
keep the mail costs 
down for all of us:)

Now Wait!
There's more!!!

As you all know,
I've Opened in August
my First Ever 
Etsy Shop

So this time round
Prize for this 
ATC Swap is...

$25.00 Etsy Gift Card!!!
That's right!
A $25 Gift Card to Any Shop
on Etsy!!!
( and I won't mind if you use
it to shop in any of the
Fabulous Shops on Etsy!!!)

Just think! You could use it
for a Treat for Yourself!!!
Or put it towards a Gift for
someone else!

Thank You's 
My Wonderful
Co-Hostess's this Year!!!!
