The minimum (1 large, 1 medium, and 1 small craft) doesn't apply to EACH historical figure, does it? If we do more than one historical figure, can we do a large and medium for one, then just a small for another?

This is my 3rd claim for the month, with none outstanding.
I claim Miss Violaceous for the magazines/catalogs and the victoria's secret box.
Please view my list on page *3* for pictures.

My List, for what its worth:
- pick 2 from the following for one claim -
1.    Two safety-pin bracelets. The smaller one is with purple sequins and clear beads, the larger one is with irridescent reddish plastic beads and brown glass beads.

2.   Four needlework pattern booklets/pamphlets from the early 1980s. The last one has lots of designs and pages, but the other 3 contain only the patterns shown on the covers

3.  An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)

--------------------------------------------------------------

- Pick one from this list -
4.   Recycled blank journals I make from salvaged office paper and magazines images - 4 journals per claim. I have made more of these than I know what to do with, and have lots of designs. I don't have a good picture of them right now, but they're a Japanese glued binding I don't see very often. Will attempt to send ones that match your taste/interest.

5.   Enough paper ephemera to make your head spin! I can stuff a manila envelope with surprises or you can tell me the kind of items or eras you're looking for.

6.   Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

7.    50+ sheets of pale pink mulberry/kozo paper, approx. 8.5 x 11"

8.    Ink stick for Chinese/Japanese calligraphy.

9.   Leather handbag (Thai? SE Asian?), in need of repair/recon. The handles (included) tore off when I was carrying books in the bag. Its kinda beat up and musty, but its an easy project for a craftster with the knowhow. Sorry about the poor picture quality, I only have access to a scanner right now.
         
10.    Approx 1 sq yard of Strawberry Shortcake fabric, from an old but clean bedsheet.

11.  Link from Legend of Zelda, in needlepoint. Image is approx 2x3" with a little more aida fabric bordering it.

Thanks for looking and helping me de-stash!

I agree, and you certainly have done a lot to encourage people along. Thank you for all of it!! Grin

Maybe as people start doing their holiday crafting and are more actively seeking random supplies, too. It looks like the thread has been viewed extensively, so people must just be browsing through the lists thinking, "Eh, don't need that right now. Eh, don't need that, either." Would it be helpful to increase the number of items required on a list?
3276  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: RAINBOW SWAP! SIGN UPS CLOSED! on: August 25, 2007 09:35:55 PM
Yay, 2 out of 3 of mine are finished...but the final one is actually multiple crafts in one, so there's still a ways to go and I've been working on it every stinkin day (and enjoying every stinkin hour of it Grin).
3277  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Re: Digi vs The Human Hand on: August 25, 2007 02:37:20 PM
I really have no business posting in this thread, but I do want to note that any perceived, implied, or explicit bias towards hand-made cards in this discussion probably stems from the nature of Craftster as a craft-oriented site that revels in the homemade/handmade world. There's a wider appreciation for the tactile, old-fashioned and kitschy here because of the greater emphasis/appreciation of technology, fine art and digital arts in society at large. It's not a disregard for the latter, it's a subculture of the former.
This is a generally supportive, kind, and non-critical community for people to post pictures of their creations and works-in-progress...So when the creations *themselves* are posted, because they're jpegs and have been jpegs all along, rather than being "pictures of", it can throw some of us off because its not what we're expecting. Because it's more down the arts aisle than the crafts aisle.

Time to bust out the vats and coffee grinds/teabags/cocacola for aging/distressing some paper! That'll help ward off the impatience as the final sign-up day drags slowly onward.

This is exactly the issue that's kept me mentally distant from ATCs. I know everyone has free artistic license to do what feels right, but I'm not sure where I stand yet on using digital in my own work. (hooray for "I-language")
I wrote a really long message and have deleted it, since I guess it's mainly for my own internal clarification anyway.
The main issue, to me, is the reproducibility (is that a word?) of digital ATCs.
I think digi and handmade belong in different categories when it comes to capital-a Art. Neither being better nor worse, they're just different media, and different processes.
Here's a question I wonder about, though: how many people who use digital consider the process therapeutic?

awww if school wasn't starting soon i'd totally be in.   Sad 
maybe there can be a round 2 during winter break or something.   Wink

I say, if you're taking ANY history-related classes this term, you should join. I say, use this swap as an opportunity to learn about someone/something you're going to have to research anyway, making note of it in the PM you send the organizer, and create a project that will get you at the very least a few extra credit points.
("I say, let's...evolve; let the chips fall where they may." - T. Durden)
Sorry, I started the first sentence with "I say" and then good ol Tyler showed up and overthrew my line of thought.


Ok, I'm sorry about all of that headyness. I probably wouldn't say any of that if I were still in school. Unless I were a TA. But still, consider joining.
