Oct - Nov 2018 "White Christmas" ATC Swap

Hi Everyone
Well can you believe that this is our last swap for 2018.
For our last swap we are going to try something a little
I had an excellent response to the suggestion by one of
the ladies to do an Artist Trading Coin.
This is a circle two and a half inches in diameter.

The theme for this swap is
"White Christmas"

You may create your coin in anyway that you wish as long as
 you stick to the measurements and the theme.
This swap should be a lot of fun.

1. Australian papercrafters are encouraged to participate in this ATC swap.
2. If you commit to this swap please, out of consideration for all the
    participants meet the set deadlines.
3. To participate, write a comment to add your name to the list of participants
    below and I will email you my address details.
4. Post your ATC's and a stamp self addressed envelope to me on or by the
    posting deadline (see 7 below). I recommend that you put your ATC's in a
    9 pocket plastic sleeve to protect them from the weather.

Deadline dates:
5. Registration list for this swap opens on Tuesday 2 October and closes
    Monday 8 October.
6. To register to participate please leave a comment before the closing date.
    I will then confirm the number of ATC's needed to be made for the current swap.
7. Swaps must be in the mail to me by no later than Friday 16 November ( as mail can
    take a business week to arrive to me depending on where you are located) and I
    should receive them all by Friday 23 November at the latest.
8. I will post swaps received on Monday 26 November at the latest so you should
    receive your ATC's shortly thereafter.

Participation governance:
    ATC swap numbers will be limited to ten people per swap.
    Founding members have automatic entry into each swap (but still need to
    confirm their participation for each swap)
    With the exception of founding members, participants will be eligible to take
    part on a "first in" registration basis.
    I do hope you will participate - any questions feel free to leave a comment.

What's an Artist Trading Coin?
For this swap an ATC is the acronym for Artist Trading Coin.
For anyone new to ATC's it is a round circle that measures 2.5" in diameter.
There is no right or wrong way to create an ATC - you just need to stick to the
measurements and the rest is up to your imagination.
