Thanks for posting your card, blu!
I was waiting to get another card in to do them both together.
I love the haiku.

Sammylouise40 made me this handdrawn map card of "Literia".  It's got places from various stories, almost all of which I recognize.  Very fun! Thanks.

Jay arrived home from his what-I'm-sure-was-wonderful trip to see artsycandice in Oregon.  He returned home with lots of tasty goodies for the trip, postcards and pictures, a great album, college souveniers, and yummy tea (which he's shared with me at work.)





I'm infinitely sorry to have taken so long to post.  I was so glad to see everything, and am really grateful, artsycandice.

I really apologize for falling off the face of the Earth.  
However...feedback just went out.
PMs about remaining pieces I'm not sure about just went out.
All pieces are now in the mail (that would be mine, so sorry.)

Thanks for being great and responsible swappers!


My theme was purple.  
These are from rscowtown.  Very sparkly and textured in person!



Sammylouise made these based on my pinterest.  I love their abstractness.



These are from mandymo13.  I love the tree.  Love!


Pretty purple flowers from crazyda79



Luvebuggy99 made these pieces. They're super smooth.

The ice bucket challenge video was so funny.  
Also love anana and the pineapple cake.

Buttercup and George the cat and I are having a lazy day watching Law and Order: SVU.

Unfortunately I only got pretty awful photos, but here's Buttercup at a Doobie Brothers concert. 


Also, I got another postcard from Jay today!
Yay!

Buttercup and I got back from NY, but unfortunately, my phone was being awfully obnoxious and didn't want to live long enough to take many pictures.  Here's Buttercup manning the GPS for our road trip, however.  We saved some momentos from the trip, also, so she has those, even without pictures.

It's a rough morning here for us.
Luckily, we run on Dunkin' in Massachusetts.

THE DETAILS
Time to finish up some pieces for your in-progress altered puzzles, or begin a new one!

For this swap, you repurpose or purchase a jigsaw puzzle (cardboard or wooden) and send two pieces to each of your partners.  You can choose the theme, or you can let your partners have an artists choice.  Totally up to you.

Ideally, we will be in groups of six, meaning you mail out and alter ten puzzle pieces.  (This is subject to change slightly, based on how many swappers sign up.)  If you prefer to be in more than one group, please let me know.

This is open to international partners. Willingness to ship internationally is required for this swap, given the small size of what were sending.  

PIECES MUST BE ENCLOSED IN CARDSTOCK OR A GREETING CARD.  If you think it needs to be hand cancelled, please write that on the envelope.  Personally, Ill probably be sending mine in mailers, because it just seems safest.  But use your judgement based on the size and thickness of the pieces your mailing.  Remember how difficult it is when a pieces goes missing (it is a puzzle, after all!) Thanks.

While waiting for partners, you should:

1. Buy or choose a puzzle.

2. Assemble and number the backside of EACH piece.

3. Decide if you want the pieces facing the same way or all over the place. Add arrows to backs of pieces to indicate which direction. (On the questionnaire, I will ask if your pieces are one direction or any direction).

4. Choose your theme or themes.

5. Prepare your pieces.  Some people just mail them as they are; others sand them a bit and add some gesso to make a clean slate.  Its up to you.  

6. You can write a letter to include with your pieces and make your wishes known - glitter or no glitter, 3-D or no 3-D, words or no words, whatever guidelines you have for your finished pieces. You can also say "Artist's choice with an ocean theme" or "Artist's Choice" - this means each partner will decorate/alter the pieces in his/her own way and you will have a puzzle with a random look.

7. Remember, you will send out your pieces to each partner for altering. It's a good idea to copy or trace pieces before sending out if anything goes missing.

Poor Buttercup really hasn't gotten around all that much.
I really am a homebody.

But here she is with my Dad out to breakfast last weekend.  We went to a restaurant in an apple orchard, and then on my sister's boat for a bit.  More pictures on the blog.
