So sorry I've neglected the threads a little bit lately!!! Things for school suddenly got thrown on my plate (about 2 weeks before I expected). Boooooo.  I'll try to get to reading through, posting, and updating HQ in the next few days!!

I can't wait to get home this evening to check the mail!! At last count, I think I was close to about a third of the way to a full collection.  Husby said the work/time on the cards was worth it because I'll have a "steady stream of fun mail for the next several months." Hehehehe.

I claim LimeRiot for "tide pool!"

1/0/0

Hi! I'm Sara in Honolulu, HI (USA).
I am happy with all art, so feel free to choose "artist choice," for real.  (However, please don't send any plant, animal, or soil matter, as we have big agricultural restrictions : )



Here are my themes:

-moon on a string

-tarot

-zen gardens

-I dream of jellyfish

-Pierrot Lunaire (or Pulchinella, Petrouchka, etc.)

-Peace (peace sign, or your own interpretation of peace)

-"jumping jehosephats!"

-your political rant (go for it! I don't judge)

-Solstice (summer or winter)

-Prehistoric "structures" (Like Stonehenge, Maeshowe, etc.)

-your local coffee shop

-your location

-little colorful birds

-things that grow

-what goes on in your head

-Hawaiian legends /folklore

-sunsets and silhouettes

-your frat/sorority letters

-mermaids (original, not Disney, please)

-50/50 card-- cover half the card with a pre-existing picture or magazine clipping, and then draw the other half! (Doesn't have to be the actual other half..)

-a card with a cutout

-altered playing card (with the number/suit showing- just the top left is fine.)
(Please ask for particular number/suit/theme if you want, or feel free to artist's-choice it!)

-artist's choice

Mine are all sent! (Wow, it took a long time to get them all in envelopes, etc.!)

I'm loving receiving this steady stream of fun mail!!

So many cool things! Sorry, I've been a little taken off-guard with school things suddenly starting (some things/jobs I need to do, unbeknownst to me before now)...  I think I've gotten team analog updated, but I'm going to double check the point count.  Also, please please please let me know if I've missed any projects!!

Ok, I finally hunkered down and finished these things.... OY!  I have exactly 28, and will not be making any more of these!!!! (So, hopefully they all travel efficiently through the postal system.)  Addressing envelopes this evening, and I'll have them out as soon as I can!


Also, teaser!

Holy discussion, Batman!  I just came here for a quick check-in, and had to read several pages! 

I am a fan of glue too! I used to work in the conservation department in a music library, and although a lot of my job was sewing signatures and pamphlets (music scores/parts), I would often spend a week at a time just working on the things that needed to be glued. *sigh* It was wonderful!  (But, I admit, after a week of gluing things for 8 hours a day, it's nice to change it up a bit!)

As far as my cards, I'm trying to decide whether I can leave them (with a few alterations) or make some drastic changes to the front.... They're painted backgrounds on both sides, and I carved a stamp to print the fronts (along with other stamps) but the pigments I used for the different stamps are reacting differently with the sealer I put on.. Ugh!  So I need to figure out if I can just re-coat them with something else which won't react with what's already on there to make it more sticky! (Or, just cover up the front with something else?)

Maybe I should just learn how to use a computer for next time. HA.

Baahhahaha, you guys are so funny! I kind of gave up on my cards for a few days after my snafu with messing up the inks and paints and making a poor choice which resulted in sticky surfaces... I need to go back in there and see how bad things really are....

OH NO! I have no idea what happened to yesterday evening, but I somehow completely forgot to come on and play.... : (
