Cure your summer boredom – ATC trade


We all have those days during summer break when we’re bored out of our minds. Well today I’m gonna tell you about an awesome way to cure that boredom…

Make ATC’s! If you’ve never heard or made ATCs (artist trading cards), you’re missing out. ATC’s are 2.5″ x 3.5″ original works of art that you trade with other artists.

{{ Read more about ATCs and how to make them. }}

And if you try making some of your own ATCs and now want to trade with others around the county (or world), you’ve come to the right place! I’m doing a safe, online trade right here on my blog!

( For the parents — When I say it’s a safe trade, I mean the only person that will know any of your children personal information will be me. If you have any questions about the safety of the trade, you can email my parents at ourswapshop[at]hotmail[dot]com. )

If you’re interested in the trade, make sure to read this whole post so you know all the fun (and responsibilities) you’re getting yourself into.

And if you want to see my last trade and what kind of cards were available, click here!
