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:

23  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: ONGOING ATC SWAP -- May 2017 on: May 06, 2017 10:38:41 AM
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.

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!

So sorry, both of you. Hugs all around.

I just took my stack of cards/envelopes to the post office!  Smiley In addition to living so far from my mailing address, I'm also leaving the country May 31, so I'm hoping most or all cards reach their destination by then...if not, I have time to re-send.

I live 3 hours from my listed mailing address--but since things will likely arrive after I move out of my current place, I needed to use this reliable permanent address. So I apologize in advance for delays in letting folks know when I receive! I will be picking up mail most weekends in May.

Allllmost done...I'm even starting to clean up the project-mess that's taken over my space! I had a wonderful day of crafting yesterday. My long-term relationship ended on Monday and it did a world of good for me to be immersed in art/crafting with a personal theme like this. I didn't think I would be able to make unique cards for everyone in the swap, but I ended up with more than I need (which is fine and well because they're like therapy for me). I'm so glad I signed up!

Idea: If you want to include your blog, Pinterest, profile, or another website address as part of your personal info on the back of the card, create a QR code here to save space: http://www.qr-code-generator.com/
Download the code it creates as an image, then insert and shrink the image in the document where you're writing your personal info.
