Based on this swap, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29459.0 , we're doing round II!! You find a picture at a thrift store and send it off to your swap partner. Then they revamp it ala this website http://thewurstgallery.com/vintage_vandals.html and ship it back to you. We'll have 'original' art that no one else in the world has! How cool! Keep in mind the size of your picture when choosing. You can get whatever size you want, but shipping may be pricey.  Please pm me asap with the dimensions of your photo, so i can match everyone up accordingly. You can get any medium you want, fabric, magazine pages, paintings, canvas, glass, whatever. Also, if your picture has glass in it, please remove prior to shipping. You can send the frame, but please remove the glass. This will make it easier, and safer, for everyone. Also, please check out the original thread for questions, b/c alot of stuff was brought up and answered. Thats all! Good luck and have fun! Happy Thrifting!

One question & one suggestion...

Is the 6/15 the first date for send out? I mean do I have til 6/15 to find a painting & sent it to my partner?

My suggestion is that Jessicakes matched us up by the size of our paintings (and our preference towards religious art) and that way no money had to exchange hands at all. It seemed to work well for the first round.

this is gonna be fun, and it gives me a few weeks to look around for a painting.

i think the times are ok, might need a little more time for the second shipment, like a week, for a total of three weeks or something like that.

July 5th is good for me. The only thing we may have to consider is if we have any non US participants. That might mean we need more time to ship to & from.
