ok, I shouldn't but I just did.
I thought, six... I can do six. as long as it fits in the flat rate box.
What's an art major to do, LOL! Cheesy

And now, decisions... and wading thru supplies!

I think I want to tie tags on my stuff, direct people to a blog post so they can comment if it is found. Maybe a different post (hence a different web page) for each item.

Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I love the idea of art set free to float! You could even put something in a ziplock bag with air and set it adrift. It reminds me of this awesome yarn bomb in Australia that always makes me smile that was posted on craftster http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=375470.0

oooh floating!  what if you drew/paint/whatever on paper then had it laminated then made it into little origami boats?  it would be cool to release a bunch at once, or drop them in various fountains around town!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

That would be so cute - I loved Richard Scarry when I was growing up.  That would be true abandonment - leaving it up to nature where it eventually ends up.  Makes me think of those message in a bottle letters.  There is one gentleman here in Canada that does that routinely and has a collection of all the letters he has received from all over the world of people who have responded to him.

So since I'm wanting to do art abandonment ongoing, I have created a facebook page.  It is in it's infancy but I would love for this to be an place for the finders to post that they did find their art as well as posting pictures of our completed art.  The facebook page is simply "Abandoned Art 4 U"

I have partners all matched but there is still room if anyone else wants to join today! For those on the east coast of the states, you will have partners when you wake up tomorrow!

A very kooky idea for transoforming a household object into an art object/container came to me last night, and I need to wait a few days and revisit the idea in order to determine if it was late night hallucination or doable and cool. Smiley

I once saw a quote that essentially sai 'everything seems like a good idea at 3 in the morning.' Lol. I hope that your idea does turn out to be one of pure genius rather than pure tiredness Smiley.

Ooh, art in a bottle! I'm happy to drop a bottle in the ocean if anyone wants...

Partners are up!

Please please let me know if I made any mistakes (not willing to ship internationally, trade with this one craftster far too often, indoor/outdoor does not work, etc) as I can still switch it up. We have one group of three due to the odd number of people.

Most importantly, let's craft!
