I'm very excited, I check out that link and saved a whole bunch of bookmarks for inspiration!

Let's have some fun while we're waiting for the swap to start. So what are everyone's themes?

Mine are very specific, I think.

1. The Birth Of Venus by Sandro Botticelli
It doesn't have to be an exact copy; Alter it, change it up!
http://abm-enterprises.net/artgall2/botticelli_birth_venus.jpg
2. Astronomy/Celestial/The Universe
Expecially things like: the Moon, black holes, worm holes, odd things in space, stars, space travel, Aliens
3. My Favorite Books
Ender's Game/Ender's Shadow Series by Orson Scott Card
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Harry Potter by J.K. Rolwing
The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint Exupery
4. Zetti

Post by: Samsara on July 09, 2009 09:40:15 AM
Cool!
My themes were quite similar to audio-astrophysics actually! I think I put down The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Celtic or Art Nouveau and Fairies. And I put as my favourite patterns things like Zetti, astronomical (is that a word? *lol*) and spacey (amongst other things!)


Title: Re: The themed bookmark swap. Sign-up's 9-16 July.

There are lots of you who like Zetti, Steampunk and Sci-fi. I'm so girly.   :-\

It's a style of art work created by Teesha Moore - audio-astrophysics puts a link to the website on the first page of the thread...it'd easy to see than to explain  ;)

I feel so unoriginal for putting such "general" themes on mine :D I can't remember exactly what I wrote, but I know I included steampunk, fantasy and goth... Obsessive signup during work hours apparently made me slightly less verbose than usual :D Slightly!

Post by: scaramouche on July 10, 2009 12:43:03 AM
I'm in  ;D

My themes were
- Venice

- Airship pirates (Could've filled in steampunk for that one)
- Next to normal the musical (those lyrics are just glorious) :D

I kept my themes nice and simple. That way my swap partner can have a little more artistic lee way.  ;D

I was in a bookmark swap earlier this year and I got a lot of ideas from that, so this should be fun.  It's an especially good swap for international swapping, since the items are small.  Anyone not in the U.S.?  My themes were pretty simple too....I just hope not too boring for whomever I'm paired up with!!!  :)

I could swear a Zetti was a "bad guy" on the Wonder Pets on Nick Jr.  Or was it The Backyardigans?  I should pay more attention :P

Don't worry, I didn't know what it was until I clicked on the link.  Then I realized that it's that type of collage art (well, that's how I'd describe it) that I've been seeing around a lot lately (maybe just in the last couple of years) that I really like.  To someone who's never tried to do artwork like that (or collages in general), it might seem like a simple thing, but it actually requires some serious artistic ability.  Plus I think it's interesting to look at :)

I may not know Zetti, but I know kids shows. It was Backyardigans and it was the Yetti. They went around doing the Yetti stomp...I have 3 small children, I don't actually get to watch any TV meant for anyone above 5.  :P

I just sent in my info! I told myself I was going to cut back on swapping, but one teeny tiny bookmark swap can't hurt. :D

While I love zettiology, I kept it off my theme list this time.  ::)

My themes are:
1. Dia de los muertos
2. Birds.
3. Mushrooms/cute foresty
4. Zombies

I'm stuck on the "patterns you like" question...

Are skulls or hearts considered a pattern or a theme? What kind of things are you guys putting?

Thanks! I put houndstooth and polka dots, but I am just going to leave it up to my swap partner... It was so much easier for the dislikes in that part of the questionnaire!

So I'm in and very excited!  :D

D'awwww! Thanks Audio, you're pretty awesome yourself! You're giving me high expectations to live up to. :D

For my patterns I put polka dots, argyle and black and white checkers. I forgot all about houndstooth! I don't really have any patterns that I dislike, and only one color that I really don't want... pink! ick.  :P

I'm going out on a limb here in defense of pink... Pink doesn't have to be all girly and froo froo. At my school we have a pink ribbon walking team to raise money for breast cancer research. Pink ain't all bad, you just have to use it in the right way.  ;)
Yay Pink!! ;D

I've just signed up! Here are my themes:

Knitting
Art Deco/abstract
Star Wars/space
Dinos/animals

I really only need one bookmark for myself (only ever read one book at a time), but my boyfriend also reads a lot and I would love to get a bookmark for him (the last two themes).

LMAO! True, pink has it's uses, I've worn a pink ribbon, and would wear a pink shirt if I were part of a breast cancer team.

I don't dislike it for it's girly-ness, since I like a lot of cutesy things (cute forest themes.. ;D), I just don't like it in general, not even the dusky pinks.


Star Wars/space
Dinos/animals


You boyfriend has excellent themes! I love Star wars and Dinosaurs myself, but opted to leave them out of my swap themes.  ::)

Looks like this is a really fun bunch of swappers! I'm non-US as well (just Canada though :)). Here's my themes - I made more than 4 for more leeway (and because, hey,I could handle swapping a couple extra bookmarks).

- The Wild Hunt (from folklore -  as I'm writing a novel revolving around it)
- reading/writing
- the apocalypse
- dark Victoriana
- Sailor Jerry style tattoos
- campy B horror movies
- novels (especially the romantic kind) from the 1930's/1940's
- crafting

For patterns/etc I just put stripes & polka dots. Though I suppose I could have been more creative. (The houndstooth, spirals, and animal prints that people have already mentioned especially.)

Post by: Willowe on July 10, 2009 12:56:35 PM
Just sent in my info. For my themes I put down Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Nature/Trees, Mythical Creatures. I didn't go into too much detail on patterns. I probably should have, but I haven't really thought about what my favorite patterns are, so I just requested nothing too angular or blocky.

This looks like it's going to be a great swap!

I just sent in my questionnaire. I came up with six themes so my partner will have a lot of choices:

-- dogs
-- poetry
-- nature or gardening
-- crafts
-- ducks
-- the letter Z

Hmm.  I am an oddity around these parts. I hope someone "fits" for my partner!

Looking forward to this swap, especially because it's easy and inexpensive.

Ok, I'm curious, why the letter Z? Is it an initial or does it hold some other special meaning for you?

I think it'll be fine. Although I didn't put dogs or nature down, I still love those things.
So, I'm sure your partner will be able to craft two of your themes.

Can't wait to get started.

It's the initial of my last name, and since it's rather unusual, I feel somehow attached to it.  BTW, I just loooovve your username, ntrebleagain! :D 8) :P

Hehe... glad I could be a topic of curiousity!  :D

I'm a music nerd and was in chorus for most of my school years... So, as an alto I sang on the treble staff. Instead of telling someone I was in trouble again I thought it would be cute to say I was in treble... And there you have it!  ;D

I finally took some time to look up some zetti. I agree, very cool, but I don't think I could pull off one of those. It's just not my aesthetic, I could try, but I'm not sure how it would turn out. I wouldn't mind getting one, but I doubt I could make one.  :)

I like your themes zcrafter. I could think of lots of ways to make a bookmark around the letter "z"
 ;D

Good! That was what I had in mind. I wanted to give my partner lots of things to choose from, some of which would be easy to work with.

I'm just about finished with my first bookmark. I need to let it rest awhile and then see if I want to add any more. I started with the boyfriend's dinosaur bookmark. The title page of one of my son's books was sacrificed in the name of crafting. I needed some life like dinos.

Here's a bit about art deco from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Deco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Deco). I think a good thing to do would be to do a Google image search. That should give you some ideas.  :)

I've cut it out all of the pieces for 2 of my bookmarks. They're going to be simple, yet pretty, which I like! (and hope pinkguin likes too) and then I think I'm going to make 1 more, so all together, I have three. 1 of my designs is quite different, and exciting!  :D

I went to hobby lobby and found some interesting baubles to hang on the ends of my bookmarks instead of a little tassle.

I think I got art deco ok, either way, I like how it turned out.

Looking at the Zetti stuff must have rubbed off, my dinosaur bookmark has a little of a zetti feel to it, just not quite as elaborate.

I should be able to ship tomorrow, if everything turns out ok that I can make the trek to town to the postoffice.

I'm not happy with the way one turned out. Not sure if I'll send it. But, I already know what I'm doing for my other two. This has been so much fun :) Perfect for my first swap.

Wow! Everyone's going to town now. I have one bookmark done, and it is so cool-- not even a theme I personally like, but it did turn out cute.

The next one should be done in a few days.

I'll be sending my bookmarks out tomorrow as well. I reeeeeeally love one of them. It was pretty easy to make though, so I can make lots more. : )

Wow. I feel kinda bad 'cause I'm still in the planning stages. I have several ideas, but haven't actually started anything yet... :-\

I wanted to send mine a bit early because that US/Canada postal connection runs sloooooow.  :D

Oh man. Time is just a flying by right now.
I'll have everything done and sent by Thursday for sure, but I have been so busy with an emergency flight to my parents house and the OWS 48 swap.

Done! I just need to find time to get to the post office. I almost sent this morning, but the glue wasn't completely dried and I didn't want to risk it. Hopefully it'll be sent tomorrow or Wednesday...

I don't have AC in my apartment and it's sooo freakin hott in it, I only go inside to change into my swimsuit after work to go to the lake. I'm gonna have these bad boys coming your way soon racky!!!

Okay, glad everyone's had fun! - I think I've upated everyone correctly, I'll do some feedback tomorrow, I'm in pain currently from a jab I had earlier, and my entire arm is numb, so typing is not fun. However, kinda tickly. If you think the status of your name on page 1 is wrong, please message me.

Have a lovely evening. (:

Tickle-me-emo has received according to the PM she sent me, but has not yet had a chance to post her work.  That's the only error I know of on the front status list.

Hi Yarnorama I contacted you on wednesday or thursday but I didn't hear anything from you (I did hear from my partner though) I send you a PM again, would you like to message me when you get it, cause I'm starting to think something might be wrong with my computer.
