Title: MLPArena Card Swap 2012 - all cards mailed
Post by: ArenaHunt on October 23, 2012, 11:55:43 PM
MLPArena Card Swap 2012
Get those pens and cards ready - IT'S CARD SWAP TIME!
The annual card swap is back for its 7th year.

Everyone and anyone can join. Participants will be put into groups of approx 8-10.
Group A will send to Group B, B will send to C, etc. That means you will send and receive 8-10 cards.
The number of groups, and number of participants per group, depends on the number of participants.

**RULES & Things to keep in mind:
1: Each group will have a variety of addresses - USA, Canada, Europe, etc. If you cannot send cards overseas, do not join. You should plan to spend at least $20-$30 for cards and mailing.
2: You may get a variety of cards - various holidays, traditions, cultures, and religions. If you are not comfortable with this, please do not join.
3: If at any point you run into trouble or delays, PM me ASAP.
4: You MUST include your Arena username when you sign your card, so the person receiving your card knows who you are! Make sure your username is legible.
5: Cards can be store bought, hand made, computer print-outs - whatever you want. They don't even have to be pony-related.
6: You must let me know [via PM] when you have mailed your cards.
7: You must let me know [via PM] when you receive cards and from who.
8: You must ship within the set deadline.
9: All members are expected to actively participate in the swap threads. This includes posting in the Partner Interest Thread.

**Requirements to join: have been here at least 3 months with a post count of 100 posts or higher
(ie - must have joined August 2012 or earlier)
No - I will not deviate from these requirements, please do not ask. I will not respond to those messages.
If you don't have enough posts yet, start posting. There is a full couple of weeks of sign-ups. If you don't have long enough membership, hopefully you will join us next year.
NOTE: This swap does not count towards your swap limits.

**How to join: Please PM me (ArenaHunt) to let me know you want to join.
IMPORTANT: All participants will be required to fill out a questionnaire upon joining to ensure that you understand ALL the requirements of the swap. All questionnaires must be received no later than Nov 9. If your questionnaire is not received by that time, you will not be included in the swap.
NOTE: The questionnaire will also ask for your mailing address. Please ensure that all your info is correct and fully complete - it is not my responsibility to track you down for countries, zip/postal codes, last names, etc.

**Last day to join: November 5.
Please take this as seriously as you would any other swap. Once I have sent the group lists out - you cannot drop out. If you have any doubts about being able to fulfill your requirement, don't join.

**I will have the group lists out to all participants the weekend after the join deadline (Nov 10-11). That will give you a month to shop and fill out your cards.
NEW: This year the initial lists will contain only usernames and countries. This is due to numerous participants last year shipping early with no communication.
The secret swap word is mohawk. Make sure you have this word ready for your questionnaire.

**Card Mailing:
All cards are to be mailed between December 5 and December 15.
Address lists will be sent out in the week of Nov 26-30. That gives you a week to address your envelopes for mailing.

**Feedback:
Feedback will be left by me upon completion of the swap. Feedback will be based on communication, mailing within the deadline, following of the rules, participation in swap threads, etc.

**Swap Timelines:
now-Nov 5 - sign ups open
Nov 6 - sign ups closed
Nov 9 - all questionnaires must be received
Nov 10-11 - group lists PMs to participants
Nov 12-25 - participants shop and fill out cards
Nov 26-30 - addresses will be sent to all participants
Dec 1-4 - participants address envelopes and get ready to mail
Dec 5-15 - mailing dates, all cards mailed

It's always fun to get holiday cards in the mail! This way you'll be guaranteed a lot of mail, and a lot of fun. :) And we all have the fun of sending out cards and getting to know each other a little better. :D

:xmas: :xmas: :xmas: :xmas: :xmas: :xmas: :xmas: :xmas: :xmas: :xmas:

Be sure to fill out the "Partner Interest" questions as well!

Favorite Color(s)?

Favorite Animal(s)?

Favorite MLP?

Other tidbits of information?

Your winter holiday?

Wow! 25 potential participants already :D Hopefully we can get at least 3 full groups.

I've got as many questionnaires out as I can. Once my hour resets I'll get the rest sent out ;)


Regarding the Secret Word & Questionnaires
I hope the instructions are clear enough for everyone. I've had some people either not understanding or not reading them already. :huh:
Also a reminder that the Card Swap has some of it's own rules, and does not necessarily follow the main Holiday Swaps.

I'm just doing the one design, but if it comes out cute maybe I'll use it for my whole list. Considering I've had an art block for ages we will have to see...

Hehe thanks Mari & that is beautiful Ivy! Is that fake snow? I've actually been debating getting some.

I won't say too much about my card. It needs to be a surprise, but I'm doing my best to create three separate images to turn into cards. I dunno if I'm being over ambitious? I wonder if I can make that many tiny Santa hats and stockings in my spare time. :lookround:

What do members of the card swap think about repeat sends?

Meaning, if you are on one person's list for 2012, they keep your address for 2013 and onward?

I had this idea last year, but didn't get around to asking it.

Perhaps the swap moderator could add to the questionnaire (next year), and we could all PM her this year (if she wants, I am in no way trying to drown her out of mind with this) on those who are willing or unwilling.  Or, perhaps just write in our cards, 'you may keep my address' or something similar.

I had so much fun last year (and know I will this year!) doing this that I wouldn't mind just sending everyone a card!  Well... everyone willing, of course.  (Okay, so this may actually be cost restrictive too, depending on how many people sign up.)

Anyhow, just a thought!
Title: Re: MLPArena Card Swap 2012 - sign ups closed.
Post by: ArenaHunt on November 10, 2012, 02:57:12 AM
Yay, we have 37 confirmed swappers. :)
Group lists will be going out this weekend, once I get them sorted out and finalized.


I think if members choose to keep (or swap) addresses for future on their own, that's their choice. I know a number of members that keep addresses from transactions so they can keep contact with people they've worked with, and even send their own cards. :) That would be outside the swap. Just like members that hold private swaps with people they've swapped with before - thsoe are outside the swap. Plus it would be nearly a nightmare to keep that data from year to year - of who participants each year and what their preferences are.

It's a nice idea, but definitely something that is up to the individual to do themselves.

Hi all! Normally each year we have the Partner Interest Thread that's shared between the Card and Sock swaps.

To make things easier for us (and since the Sock swap won't be running this year), I've included the interest questions as part of this thread. They are at the bottom of the main post. Also, if anyone thinks of other questions that should be included, be sure to let me know and I can include those.

Haha xeevee! You're so cute! Well, I suppose there's no rational explanation. Pretty sure the wolf thing comes from every child movies that made wolves evil with red eyes. As a result, I always had nightmares about them. The whale thing is more recent. I think because they're just REALLY large and kinda sneaky because they're these mammoth animals that can hide under the water and you have no idea they're there until they pop up! Hence the sneakiness. Like I said, not really a rational explanation!! :drunk:

Post by: Marigold on November 14, 2012, 03:38:59 PM
It is semi-rational.  I can see why you might fear something that large coming up under you.  My friend felt the same way about manatees when we swam with them.  She had a panic attack in the water and had to get out.  Even though they are harmless it can be disconcerting to be directly above one.

Of course it is okay!  :) 

Some of my cards are hand signed, and some have "© Marigold" because I thought I was going to fold the cards in half and that would be like the Hallmark symbol on the back of the card.  But when I fold the cards the middle gets all worn down looking.

Sorry I've been one of those absent ones!

I was planning on making my cards this week now that crazy family thanksgiving time is over, but my 11 month old baby got bronchiatus (I'm not sure that's how you spell it) and so we had a rough week. I started to make some cards yesterday while she was napping, and then realized that realistically I was not going to have time to make enough. So some of you will be getting handmade cards, and some of you will be getting store bought cards. And some of you will be getting storebought cards altered to be somewhat handmade. ;)

I'm all ready to send! I'm afraid my cards are not handmade though, I can't draw and I am no good at photoshop, I hope thats ok! :yikes:

^ Oooh, oooh, me too!

I can draw slightly lousy G4 ponies, but I went with storebought cards rather than flaunting my lack of artistic talent.  (Though I'm further embarassed to say I never even thought of Photoshopping my cards... :doh:  Maybe next year's card swap - if I start early! :lol:)

:hug: I'm sure it'll be fine. I can draw but I don't think I'll have the time so mine might be store bought too.

So sorry for being absent everyone, my tafe work is finished for 8 weeks now do I can relax and enjoy life. Woohoo!!! :D

My cards are ready! I'll have to wait to get envelops ready once I have addresses though. My handwriting is just terrible, and I sometimes have to redo it. I'd hate to have the cards sealed then have to redo them.
Maddie this is so me! Except I think I am my own worst critic on my handwriting.
Hehe, I bet yours isn't that bad! I dunno even my students will go "Ms. .... what does that say?"  poor children. :lol:

Aww, I'm sorry I've tried to be decently active in here lately. I've just been busy with work, and the thread seemed quiet. I have addresses now though! I can fill out my cards hooray! :frolic:

I say don't feel bad anyone about non hand made cards. Mine I had done through Walmart, so mine will not be hand made either. I wanted to do nice handmade ones, but I lack the skills and the time. I think the exciting part is simply getting nice cards in the mail. I know since the wife, and I moved we have less cards from friends ect on the holidays. It will be nice to have some more again. ^.^

My husband is hating it.  It also didn't help that I wore a sparkly concert dress yesterday that spread more glitter around.  I will be vacuuming forever! And ever!

Don't worry, the cards themselves are not totally covered in glitter.  Your houses will be safe.  :)

Aww I wanted to include little extras. I started making pony Santa hats for my cards, but I just felt I wouldn't get done. My mind wanders so easily.  That's very sweet though to include something.

Sorry everyone, I'm finally getting caught up today! :hug:

Work has been INSANE (including bring some home after hours), and I've been sick on top of it. :( Not fun.

Everyone seems to be doing great, thanks everyone! :D



Slight edit to say *most* everyone is doing great. There seem to be some that are choosing to skip some key requirements of the swap.

So I finally was able to get to the store for cardstock and I found a shimmery version! I am very excited. My hubby took it in this morning and is supposed to be printing it out for me today. :)

I also got my first two cards from xeevee and madhatterda today as well!

I thought instead of just saying I got cards from members I would show you guys! I have to say I really do appreciate the cards so far, and they cheer me up a great deal. Used to before the wife and I moved away for my job we had lots of friends/co-workers we would exchange cards and presents with. I would have them hanging all over the place, but it's not so much since we moved here. It's nice to have some cards from you guys to fill those sad blank walls.  Much love guys!

Here are the cards so far with one from my aunt as well.

update time from me. After the hubby struggled with printing MS word came to the rescue and all my cards got printed today. I think they came out really cute and I really hope everyone will like them. So they are all written, addressed, and sealed. I'm leaving early tomorrow to get some stamps and they should be arriving in the mail soon.

Also I got a lovely art card from Ivy today with fluttershy art on it. Thank you very much :)

I had fun drawing mine... in the end I just went with what came from the pencil at the last minute rather than the planned one.  Coloring was a lot of fun and I learned a great new way to caricature snowflakes.

Thank you also to Ivy - a beautiful hand-drawn card with my four favourite ponies on, you draw so well! :cheer:

And glad to hear, wiccanpony1, that one of my cards has wended its way to you (already!).  I'm still stunned, that's ridiculously fast and especially at this time of year.  Wow!  Maybe the posties did hear my plea for RainbowDashian speed... :lol:

Yeah the card got to you in Canada faster than the one's I mailed to neighboring states - well Canada is a neighbor... but still... Oh and the one got to CA before the one's in neighboring states.... now there is a conundrum.

And all I heard was "Oh my god!" "Babe"   XD  I said clean it up!

 :lmao: :lmao:  Well, my job here is done.

It was shimmer paper I happened across at michaels. I was in the card stock section and it was just sitting there and it felt a it sturdier than the plain white ones so I got it. I wasn't sure the ink would stick on top well but I didn't see any rubbing problems so I hope it arrived safely. I was really happy with how it turned out and might do home made cards with this paper for my whole mailing list next year. I'm so glad you liked it!

Due to some personal issues that crept up (mainly, insomnia and major stress regarding a school issue), I wasn't able to make it to the post office in time to mail my last two cards (going to the UK.)  Unfortunately, I'm not sure what the correct postage is for these two (though I have plenty of stamps), and I want to have the weight checked and have the correct amount of stamps on the envelope before it goes into the mail.  I'm very sorry to those two recipients, but the cards are going out on Monday, and I don't think there will be much of a delay if any at all (though I don't know.)  I did let ArenaHunt know; and, hopefully it will not adversely affect me, or the recipients.

I got a card today from Reddsetgogirl! All the way from Australia! Glad to know mine are beginning to arrive. I wish I could've been more creative with mine, but with customs I have to make and the craft fair I was doing I just didn't have time. But I love all the beautiful handmade cards ponies clearly worked so hard on! I also love the store bought ones, too! They're going to make a great collage on my door! I'll send a pic when they've all arrived!

I usually get lots of cards every year, but this year is pretty much all pony people! I'm so grateful for your time and effort to send me some cards. It makes a very dark Christmas season more light. Thank you.

I got cards Saturday from BabySunnyBunch and lovesbabysquirmy (love the seapony! when I get all of the cards I will take a pic :) )  Thank you!!!!!

So I suppose I should wait for everyone to get all their cards before posting any pictures right?  I love each one of them!  They make me wish I had written a little more on my cards to you all.

I got several cards in, and I took a quick picture here.

Thanks Salli, Fey and Quill they are absolutely adorable!

On a side note Salli I adore your card Alice makes me squeal with excitement, and my wife informed me we're framing the card instead of putting it up on the wall with the others. It will end up in the Alice room. ^.^

Arianna-Wow! SO many stickers AND a full pack of cards! Thank you!

I have a hard time coming up with little things to put in my cards, I know it's not necessary, but I like to do it.  I actually bought tiny notepads but the ring binding them made them kind of awkward to put in cards, darn it.

It's been raining and cold lately, so no one has checked the mail for the past couple of days, so today as it's sunny we went and collected it.  3 lovely cards were waiting for me.  They were from Hilamb, PrincessDianna1982, and Salli.  They are all so lovely I had to share a pic.

First of all, the two beautiful hand drawn cards from Salli and HiLamb with my favourite pony on them.  Thank you ladies, they are lovely and so personal.  What a great thing to do for everyone.  :hug:

The card from PrincessDianna1982 is a store bought one, but oh my god is it stunning.  I literally gasped and then swore when I took it out of the envelope (which matched btw).  I love it.

I wasn't online yesterday to post this, but yesterday I got cards from Reddsetgogirl and hathorcat.  Thank you both so much - they're gorgeous! ^.^

I don't know about the rest of you ponies, but the weather outside is frightful (no fire inside to be delightful, phooey), so I don't know if that's affecting the post delivery here...

Wednesday night I was out to mail my mother's cards, and there were trucks heading out.  I think the post offices are doing their duties, it's just a good amount of mail to ship and deliver.

As for me, I did receive a card from Puuush and from Hathorcat.  Again, I will take a picture of them once I have all of them (which should be soon.  I need to count them, as I may have gotten close to if not all.)

May I ask if those who received cards from me liked their card pack and stickers?  Uhm, I'm not sure if this is correct in manners to post here, but...  I'm curious.  I like hearing back from people. :P

Eep I've forgotten which cards I've mentioned! This is from my pile today, and I know some people are not even in this swap. Ha
Princess Diana, Hilamb, InvGreen, Quill, feyj and Moondancer115. Again I know not everyone is from the swap. >w<
Guys these are lovely cards! I'm about to put them up on the wall.

I got my card from Arianna today!  Love how it sparkled in my mailbox, ehehe!  :D  And great organization to support with your cards.

The stickers are very cute - I don't have many G3.5 stickers so more to add to the sticker box is great.  And as for the cards... hmmm well lemme see who I got:

Snips and Snails- aww how fun!
Discord - wheeee love the voice actor!
Ponyville Schoolhouse - don't think I have this one
A sparkly Wedding Rainbow Dash - CUTE!
Rarity/Pinkie tats - so tempted to put them on
Hush Now Quiet Now - ohhhhhhh Star Dreams!!!! :D

Thank you very much.

I think I received my final two cards this week :( sad to see the mail stopping especially since we didn't get many Christmas cards from family and friends this year. 

I received two more beautiful cards though, one from Hilamb and one from PrincessDiana.  All the cards are so lovely this year (not that they aren't always, they just seem extra pretty).  I will try to get a picture of them all together this weekend!

Depending on where you live, it could be a while.  Some people are slower than others.  Granted I said that I think the post offices are doing their job, I was thinking that some may either not be or not as quick as others.  I had some international mail (albeit, this was years ago, so this may be a moot issue now) that honestly took a month or more, and that was just to Canada!  *hugs* I would give it a little bit more time, though I know it's heart-wrenching and frustrating.

Post by: PrincessDiana1982 on December 23, 2012, 02:00:23 PM
Glad people have been getting my cards!!!  And liking them too!!!!!  I'm sad I had to go store bought, but unfortunately, my life has taken a crappy turn these days & I couldn't spend the money I would have liked!  If I will be allowed to do this next year, I am so going to do my own!  I got cards from marigold, snork maiden, kaoskat, lovesbabysquirmy, babysunnybunch, & girlyponce.  Don't know if that's all I'm supposed to get.  I love all my cards!!!  And the hand-drawn ones....wow AMAZING talents here!!  I am uberly jealous!

And I also just want to say that I am so sorry I have been absent from here in a while.  My husband lost his job like a few weeks ago (right before the holidays so nice), & since he pays our rent (I work at JoAnn Fabrics, I make like $120/week if that, which doesn't pay for much), we have to move out of our nice apartment...& into my parents for who knows how long...in my old bedroom with a walk-in closet & bathroom...us & our 3 cats! (Which my parents HATE cats with a passion so my doors must be closed at all times, they can't wander anywhere but my room).  :(  I have been so depressed & crying lately. :cry:  They are also in an over 55 development with many rules, & only I can really live there, not him or his car (which he hand-built, it's his baby) so now he wants to sell it & be a 1 car family.  I have not even been in the holiday mood yet...I just can't get there no matter how many christmas songs I sing.  I even went on 3 interviews for a real job with a company & I got passed on 2 positions there for an already there employee both times, that broke my heart & my spirit too.  So, I am sorry I have been MIA......just soooo much going on.  A lot of packing & getting sad about the new job my husband is supposed to be getting after new years (going away to be a truck driver & be away for weeks at a time & I am afraid he'll be gone for our 1 year wedding anniversary in Feb).  Sorry to vent a little, but I thought I should explain my absence.  But I want everyone to have a GREAT holiday...esp. for me!!   MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!!!!!!

I apologize for my absence from this thread. It has been a very busy week before Christmas full of shopping, cooking, and knitting. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

I have received cards from the following wonderful people: Snork Maiden, Wiccanpony, girlyponce, Princess Sparkles, lovesbabysquirmy, and RealmofUnicorn. Thanks so, so much! I think that is all so far. I had the all stacked up neatly, but my cat thought that scattering them all across the floor was more inline with the Christmas spirit.  :P

Glad to see the number of PMs I've received about cards arriving. :D From the messages I've received, I'd say we're around half... but there are 11 members that I had to send reminders to for PMs.

Please remember to PM me when you receive cards, and who it's from. I don't mind if you wait for a few days or a week to send a few names in one PM, but please don't wait until the end of the swap. It just causes everyone more work and hassle if you do.

Everyone will receive either 9 or 10 cards (one group was larger). If anyone is wondering about their status (either receiving cards themself, or if their cards are reaching the destinations), please PM me. Especially since some people have received cards from outside the swap, and may be miscounting.

Though we got walloped with a colossal snowstorm on Thursday (45cm of snow and high winds to blow it into all sorts of deep drifts), I didn't even bother to check for post yesterday (Friday).  I figured, if the sidewalks are impassable, there'd be no delivery.

Colour me really impressed, Canada Post!  I got two cards, from puuush and Sweet Scoops. ^.^  They're both lovely, and thank you so much!

Now... off to shovel.  At least I may wind up with better arm tone in the New Year if this continues! :snow: :lol:

Yeah I kept enough to send replacement cards if mine don't show up. It looks like mostly the ones I had out of the states vanished. I don't know I they are taking forever or if my post office did something stupid.

Hi all,

I really hate posting these reminders, but it seems I need to as some people aren't keeping me updated. It's hard for me to answer others if their cards have arrived if no one is telling me.

Please PM when you receive a swap card, and let me know who it's from. Posting it on the thread is wonderful to share with the other swappers, but I still need an update as well.

I haven't been counting, so I have no idea how many of mine have or haven't arrived.  Most of my friends and family in Australia received theirs as far as I know, so I assume that everything is ok, but I haven't been cleared from the swap yet, so I guess some are awol.

ETA, well I went through the thread, and I think I counted 8 of the 9 I sent having received.  The other was to Loa, who hasn't checked into the thread at all, so I am going to assume she got it.  :silly:

I've gotten 8 out of 9 cards so far. This weekend christmas is cleaned out tho so the last card will be looked at and put away, if it arrives that is.

Very few have written in this thread if mine actually arrived and I have PMed ArenaHunt asking if any more has gotten theirs. If not I would very much like to know about how to get on, do we send replacements?

*sigh* I hate when people make me hound them for updates, but sadly they leave no choice. Definitely will be reflected in feedback, that's for sure.

Once I get updates from everyone I haven't heard from in a while (or at all), I'll start formulating a plan for replacements, if needed. Hopefully they won't be needed - hopefully the cards all made it safely, and people are just being lazy.

I did let Arenahut know that I received from you back on December 26 when I sent the list of everyone I got cards from. So I must of assumed I already posted.  So sorry to make you worry.

So I suppose I should wait for everyone to get all their cards before posting any pictures right?  I love each one of them!  They make me wish I had written a little more on my cards to you all.

:lol:  I may just send you one anyway, Marigold!

Methinks I need to skim things more carefully... that, or renew my eyeglass prescription. :nerdy:

I'm still one short... :( But, I feel okay if ArenaHunt wishes to close this year's card list.

I also need to post my brag photos. ^_^

I'll be getting catching up done today (snow day!). Sorry everyone, been a crazy couple of weeks.

Yes, if the swap is not showing in the tracking on your profile, then it means all of your cards made it to their destinations. Sadly not everyone joins in the fun on the thread, but everyone is expected to PM the host account to let me know (and I've had to chase a bunch down).

Sorry everyone - there were a few people that were clear but I had missed clearing it from your profiles. My bad!

Aside from Loa's cards (major PO trouble - they have twice now not sent her cards, and instead returned them to her unsent.... weeks later), looks like there are 7 cards left. I have PM'ed those involved in those exchanges. If you are one of them (listed below) - please check your PMs!

SENDERtoRECEIVER
beldarna-feytje
babysunnybunch-quill
wiccanpony1-saja
salli-sweetscoops
hilamb-youngatheart
quill-youngatheart
alexia-arianna

But at this point, I can pretty much say this swap is wrapped up. :) Honestly, with the number of cards (332!) being mailed, 7 potentially missing cards is one of our best years yet! 7/332 is a 2.1% lost rate - I doubt any PO's can claim that ;)

And again I say "potentially" missing - it's quite possible the cards have arrived and I don't know about them ;)

I'm super happy that only one card of mine is missing considering I thought half of them were gone! I'm not sure a Valentines card will arrive in time, but I'll try. Thanks for the update! :)

I PMed ArenaHunt telling that I swear I got Alexia's card.  Thing is, while I remember that name on a card that I did get, I cannot for the life of me find it.  I said I don't mind mine being closed.  I didn't say anything before because I am in the process of cleaning my bedroom, and I was hoping I could find it - but I can't.  So mentally, I received that card, but physically, I still only have eight cards.  Anyhow, I'm saying this out to the group, especially for Alexia, that I have been struggling with this - is my mind right, or is my physical count right?!

Either way, it was a great time, once again. :)
