Well... I've printed out the questionnaires and put a few things aside, but that's as far as I've gotten... I don't plan on sending out before the end of the week anyway.. got lots of things to sort through
Do paper crafters like funky gift wrap and odd lots of ribbon, book pages w/ excellent drawings, etc. Help me figure out what I'm looking for while out trampin' the thrift shops!!! PLS!
I can only speak for myself, but I've used gift wrap several times in my altered journal as a background, as for ribbon as long as it's about 4-6 inches long it's usable for me. I've also used pictures/pages from books as part of a page or as the background. I've used them on ATCs & inchies as well.
Something else I have to send if wanted is some wallpaper samples
things I have to send... paper, I'll be sending mostly smaller pieces that will fit in the box. I can send inchie or ATC backgrounds as well, paper ephemera- map pieces and other stuff, game pieces, unmounted clear or red rubber stamps -possibly even a small acrylic block if I can find it, misc. postage stamps, buttons, stickers, ribbon- some wired, jewelry findings & beads, playing cards or tarot cards (no complete sets), possibly feathers and leather-small pieces if I can find it, possibly some small wood ornaments, some scrapbook items... jingle bells, I think.... can anyone use colored staples? lots of other stuff... I'm sure I'll think of other things when I know what my partners want
things I could use... I love handmade paper, but printed, tissue or other paper works too. I do a lot of altered journaling and ATCs when I can, so anything that works for that is good... stamped images or rubber stamps, ink, charms and beads, tarot cards, vintage stuff/papers, ribbon & fibers for my journals
I received my last set of inchies Monday from seeuudee. I wanted to post them yesterday, but my computer was acting up and I was having problems getting anywhere online and trying to scan them. So here they are..
my favorite is the frog, but they are all cute. Thanks again for swapping with me!
Here are all my inchies together
I haven't gotten a frame yet to display them, but I think this is how they will be when I do... maybe a lighter background though
Thanks! I really appreciate you sending the images to me.
I haven't had much time to work on ATCs lately, but I'm on vacation after today, when I get back in town Sunday, I'll still have a few days off... I hope to work on some then. I have several ideas, just haven't had the time to do them.
I love them all... I couldn't pick a favorite... Thanks alorralora!
Also it seems my inchies to SuomiSidhe got lost. I'm going to try to get a new set in the mail tomorrow. I'll be gone for 4 days after that for a wedding out of town. Got lots to yet for the trip, but I hope I'll be able to get them in the mail.
