Are you planning to be the organizer, neverseenblue?  If not, does someone else want to step up to the plate--err, the calendar? I can't commit to being an organizer right now, the future is too iffy.

Ooh, I love that handmade paper. I broke my screen and haven't fixed it, so there has been very little paper making at the Balkandina Chez Funkrustico recently.
And let's all send a papery round robin hug to KarenLouiseM Smiley

Yes, big hugs. - Smiley-  I just made a recon blank book and used paper (book-themed gift wrap) that KarenLouiseM sent me to cover the bookboards...Its too big to put on the scanner, but I wanted to at least note that some of my goodies are already being put to work!

I made a big list. Explanations not included for the self-explanatory people:
1. Vincent Van Gogh
2. Frida Kahlo
3. Ernesto "Che" Guevara: Fidel Castro's right (or in this case, left!)-hand man in the Cuban Revolution; went on to fight in other revolutionary battles in Latin America once Castro's government was established;  killed by the CIA in Bolivia.
4. Mohandas Gandhi
5. Malcolm X (born Malcolm Little): Major figure in the 1960s Black Power movement and the Nation of Islam; still an icon, decades after his assassination.
6. Helen Keller: In spite of being blind and deaf, learned to communicate and became a social advocate and public speaker. Her teacher, Anne Sullivan, was originally on my list because she rocks too, but I really couldn't imagine what one might craft about her.
7. Amelia Earhart: First female aviator to fly across the Atlantic solo. She disappeared while flying over the South Pacific Ocean and her plane was never found.
8. Joan of Arc
9. John Brown: Radical and fanatically religious U.S. abolitionist who, in public opinion, took it a step too far, and was executed for killing of pro-slavery whites in Kansas (before the Civil War, there was a huge political fight over whether the new state of Kansas would be a slave-state or a free-state, and this was Brown's answer to the issue)

Hey, I just got my paper/ephemera package from casslyra today too!  - 2008 Easter Seals calendar with lots of big flower backgrounds, a vegetarian cookbook, and a cruise guidebook with various cool pics
- Music sheets and art images
 Location images
Bracelet kit

This and some of the other pages were from magazines and ads having to do with southern California, and though I'm in S. California I'd never seen them before, and casslyra sent from the east coast...It's funny how images make the rounds, even in such a big country.  Smiley

Thanks for these thoughtful items!!

I do have more of the fabrics I posted, so not a problem.  Smiley

Woohooooo! I love the bowling fabric!!  \Cheesy/

Ah, crappity...I was afraid of that. I remember you claiming it, and I was hoping maybe gavagai just has more...?

If there is no more bowling fabric, I will take the bunny fabric. Thanks!

I could tell you but then I would have to bill your insurance! Smiley Smiley

Aaaagh! [running in other direction] Smiley ...My insurance was just cut yesterday, incidentally.

I claim gavagai for the Lefranc & Bourgeois Paint for Fabrics, and a FQ of the bowling fabric. This is my 2nd claim for the month.

Here's my list:
**Pick two of the following for one claim**
1. 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.

2. Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere.  It's got good potential, though

3. 3 beaded safety pin bracelets. The ones shown, plus a rainbow (R-O-Y-G-B-P) one.

4. Vintage paperback shell (front and back cover attached with pages removed), half a dozen pages from the book included. Would make a good recon journal or a book-box for a pilot.

5.  4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:

6.  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.)

7. Unopened pack of Cotton Linter for papermaking. A full lb. of the stuff, from Paper Anew.

8. 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.

9.  6 vintage small "Open House" cards with envelopes

10. Somerset Studio magazine, March/April 2001 - "Art of the Greco-Roman Era" theme

11.  Somerset Studio magazine, January/February 2001 - "Asian Arts" theme

12.  16 wooden Parcheesi game pieces, with 8 small dice

13. Small crossstitch of Link from Legend of Zelda

14. As much paper/ephemera as I can fit into a package with your other claimed item. Some themes I currently have tons of: classic science fiction, Hollywood homes of the 1960s, game pieces, die cuts, U.S. state maps, old but unused Christmas cards

15. Baggie of jewelled metal earring pieces, shaped confetti, plastic beads of various shapes and sizes, buttons, and sequins.

**Pick one of the following for one claim**

16. Rolls of stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.

17.  50+ sheets of very thin and soft, pale pink mulberry/kozo paper, approx. 8.5 x 11"

18. Manila envelope stuffed with variety of sheer fabric samples, most white or off-white but several colors as well.

19. "Papermaking Techniques" book, by John Plowman. ISBN #1581802099. "Over 50 techniques for making and embellishing handmade paper"

I grew up with a pack-rat father and a keep-NOTHING mother, so I tend to be kind of bipolar on the hoarding issue, collecting in the good times and trashing (or recycling/donating!) in hard times. I wonder what that says about me.  Huh
