I'll be off the grid most of the next couple weeks. But I will pick up another batch of mail before the end of the month, I promise!

I'm so happy for Lana, and that we have a Lana in the world striving to make things better! She was destined for greatness with a mom like you!  Smiley

My shop is all closed up now. Everything is packed up and gong into storage for the next several months. It's been lovely to return to STS and get reacquainted with everyone! Craftsterers are the best.  Kiss

Hahaha, it turned out kinda ridiculous but at least I left enough space on the card to comment on it.  Cheesy

Somehow I forgot to take a picture of the NSFW cross-stitch I made for LeapFeetFirst...oops...but I also sent her my mystery fiber:

I claim mandykaye for Michigan!

This is my first claim for the swap.

Hi, I'm Heather in California. Nudity, kind-spirited progressive politics, glitter, adult themes/language and religion are a-ok with me, but please no hatefulness or horror/gore/intentional-gross-out. (None of that has been an issue in the history of this swap, but I just want to cover my bases . Smiley)
I'm also fine with thickness, dimensional embellishments, or things dangling beyond the boundaries of the card. Bonus points for stretching and experimentation beyond your artistic comfort zone, even if the resulting card isnt what you were hoping to achieve; I appreciate the effort and the creative process more than a "perfect" finished product!

My list of ideas, styles, and attributes, not in any order:
  • queer/lgbt-friendly/-affirmative.
  • any kind of rainbow, doesn't have to be a "gay rainbow"
  • an altered playing card - with number and suit left visible on the card - with female nudity created primarily by women--celebrating the female form in all its shapes, colors and sizes, as something more than a commodity for men's viewing pleasure, as standard nudie playing cards have always been. Explore your own issues re nudity and the body, and bring them into your art as much or as little as you want to.
  • I'm also collecting an altered playing card deck that isn't theme-specific; I'll let you know which cards/suits I still need.
  • world religions, spirituality...Maybe a mini prayer rug, a goddess, or a decorated Hindu cow?
  • libraries, books, librarians, archives, etc.
  • opal/iridescent/metallic
  • mental illness/health
  • well-dressed, fancy and dignified animals
  • use an unusual medium
  • imagined voyages, magical adventures in any realm, or steampunk grandiosity
  • delightful absurdity/nonsense
  • chakras, meditation, yoga, herbalism, that kind of thing
  • weather
  • tea
  • a wonderful quotation in wonderful penmanship
  • aesthetics of India, SE Asia, or Morocco
  • dogs in cars - sticking their head out into the wind
  • Mexico
  • saucy, succulent wild women of the past, present, or imagination
  • "the creative process"
  • an unusual or pretend animal
  • rear-view of an animal (its facing away)
  • Gustav Klimt-inspired
  • toys, games, theme parks or playgrounds of yesteryear
  • real pressed plants incorporated into the card
  • artist's choice - whatever brings you joy to create!

I'm signing up right now because I want to make something on mandykaye's list! And I just finished a mega-ATC-making spree for the Craftster Trading Card Swap, yet still feel the need to make more.  Grin I will only be able to claim during the next couple weeks, though.

MOVING/CLEARANCE SALE!
I'll need to close down my shop altogether on May 18, so I've lowered some prices. The freebies will be donated locally in one week, so grab them soon if you want them!
