how about we craft 1 small item and 1 medium item ( to keep the swap low-stress! ) using clippings from local newspapers  ??

it would be great to see what newspapers from other countries look like ! in foreign languages ! and adverts and film listings !

what do you think Huh

I think this sounds really interesting.  The cool part would be getting matched up with someone in another country to see their newspapers...  the scary part is wondering how much it costs to ship things to another country...??

I'm very intrigued by this, I think I'll see if I can do some research into the shipping costs (maybe using India as an example) Smiley
Personally, I would so much love to get my hands on some Indian newspapers...

ha.  cultural studies (it's a glorified liberal arts degree).  not very artsy i guess, but that leaves all my creativity for crafting!
