I too went with steampunk. It's my favorite piece. I did the housewife theme for the second one. I learned valuable lessons on shylitlegoddess's pieces. For newbies-first, don't forget to look at the arrows before you cut and glue. Second, it's not like an atc, you can't throw it away and start over!  Shocked

Shylittlegoddess has some altered ones coming from me also! I thought she had received mine to. lol I think we are both in a hurry for her to get them. If it wont ruin any surprise what themes of hers did you go with? I used her steampunk and goth theme. Surprise shylittlegoddess lol I really liked the way she put two of her small pieces together. Very clever! Smiley

I started the gallery here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372591.0

I am still updating the who received and who sent stuff. I finally figured out how to use the label system in CraftsterMail so I keep moving messages to folders. Now I need to go back and read thru all the messages and highlight in colors....

Thanks for the advice on how to do this, shylitle - I peeked at the last 2 Altered Puzzle galleries and copied that method. It looks confusing at first blush - but hopefully all of you will understand it.

And for all of you - those little blank pieces of wood and cardboard are powerful. It's a blank canvas - like an ATC - and the possibilities are endless! I meant to only apply gesso last night and 2 hours later they were finished! So it's good they are fast - or the altering is fast (ish) but it's bad because you can get lost in the altering! HAVE FUN, above all. It is supposed to be fun, remember?

I have received 2 "blank" sets so far... Unfortunately, until the mailbox structure thaws... I cannot get the door open to my box :/ to know if any others came  LOL! I tried to check the mail this morning... I put my key in and it wouldn't even turn or open!! And, being that it's still only 20-something outside... I am guessing it hasn't yet defrosted. I almost didn't take my little guy to school this morning.. My car was frozen shut from the freezing rain that froze over when the cold front came in. When I woke up at 6... it was 45. By time I went to leave, it was 21 and my car wouldn't open as the doors were frozen/iced shut. I had a heck of a time.. was only able to open 2 of my 4 doors. I was so wishing that I had a fancy car with an auto start like my hubby. And, of course.. he likes to start his and smirk at me to show off! lol Next time, I am taking his Avalanche.. and he can take the family wagon to work! Sorry... got a bit long.. didn't mean to rant. Just a bit annoyed, because they said at noon.. it'll warm up.. no such luck! and I have to leave at 2 to go get my son! grrr! lol But, on the plus side.. I have been busy being artsy-fartsy all morning Smiley

Try spraying the mailbox with very slightly watered down hand sanitizer. The alcohol in it should help loosen things up.

If you get really desperate, extension cords and a hair dryer!

LOL! Well... the mailbox is down the road! These newer neighborhoods down here have central large boxes that everyone has a little cubby with a keyed door. I dunno what the neighbors would think of me standing out there with my super-duper long extension cord in this crazy windy weather lol! But, I think if I went and started spraying the box.. they may call someone thinking I am messing up something! lol It is now 32 degrees F outside... thinkin' even though it isn't thawed.. perhaps, it's magically unstuck?

Holy cow! I received Shelina's puzzle pieces today.  Shocked  They are ginormous! I can't wait to see her finished wall art. I got one done. They are a little more challenging then I thought they would be. I'll put on my thinking cap.

Yeah I was wondering about that, but I didn't see any PMs from my partners so I wasn't sure.

Maybe people are sending PMs to me only? Please send to me and the person or persons you are sending to - I am trying to keep up with all the info - there's lots of info in this swap. I'm an info-aholic! An info-bi$%^. An infaddict?
