Random Acts of Strangeness Postcard Swap – Part II

The first one looked so great we thought we would do it again – thanks handxhand for starting the thread!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Random Acts of Strangeness Postcard Swap – Part II

Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  goatgoddess

Sign-up date range: Dec 20 thru Jan 15, 2006

Date to send item by:  Jan 23, 2006

Limited to a certain number of people? No

Non-U.S. participants allowed?  Yes.

All ages allowed?   Yes

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

THEME:  Random Acts of Strangeness - anything strange or unusual that fits on a Postcard.  =)

DISTRIBUTION:   If quite a few people sign up, we'll break it down into groups of five. If you would like to do more than five then you could sign up for more than group.  If  it’s under 10 then everyone will send a card to everyone that signed up. So depending on the signups you may be making 5 or 9 cards <G>
I will post members as people sign up at the end of this post.

DESCRIPTION:  The only rule is to make your cards as strange as possible.
What is strange? Whatever your definition of strange is. 
Some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:  Pasting animal heads on human bodies, random images that don't correlate (or do they???), surrealist art, strange or unusual quotes accompanied by an unrelated (or is it related?) photo, weird drawings of mythical creatures, mixed up song lyrics, etc.
The idea here is to create something strange and unusual.  The stranger the better!

This really is going to be a "What WILL the mail carrier think???" type of swap.

To see how they did the first time:

I signed up  Grin Is it cheating to begin making the 5 minimum when we have time, even though it's not the official crafting period now?

Heheh. Good idea  Wink I had loads of scraps and so on, but made a collage for seaofstars (ages ago now) and they've all gone....(I had a fabulous image of a scene from an old 40s black-and-white film, which now I remember would have been perfect, but that's gone onto a Paris collage  Smiley )

I just had to ask, because I know I'll be somewhat busy that week, but will have time just after Christmas.  Smiley

Well, even if it's just us two* it'll be a fun and cosy swap!

*duh, signups were only 15 minutes ago...hahahahhahaa. I am so impatient.
