I had hoped to join but I don't want to overextend myself.
But I will abandon along with you, in San Francisco.

I've been making paper goddess dolls but hope to make a few with fabric. And maybe a Ninni or 2!

Have fun.

I had a flash of inspiration at 5 am this morning as I was laying in bed, unable to sleep! Gotta love it.

On a side note, I have all partners preliminary matched. I was wondering if anyone might be adverse to extending the signup range by two days. We have a new member who wants to join but her official one month membership will only be on the 17th (thus eligible for the swap on the 17th). I hate to deny her for two days. I can send out partners on the 15th anyhow for people to get started excluding one person (probably me) to be match with the new member.

As this is my first time swap as well...PLEASE let me not be the only newbie Wink

Would love to swap for art of my fur babies

Thanks so much to all of you who voted for the extension (I'm the original newbie request to join). With my daughter's wedding coming up on September 2, I need something else to think about beside wedding details.

several people would get to see and appreciate it, though most still wouldn't want to touch it
Why do you think that?
I dropped many zines, postcards and even small toys (plastic dinosaurs with a tag saying "please give me a good home") in bathrooms, mostly around my campus library and I would go check on them about an hour later and every item was already gone! I always place them around lunchtime, because I know a lot of people take theyr bathroom breaks after lunch and the janitor wont be doing his rounds untill afte 6pm.
I favor stalls and changing booths more because I think people feel safer to take something with them when no one else is looking. I guess thats why its also a good idea to leave things in library shelves or between the pages of a book. There is this sense of intimacy between the piece and the finder.
Once I tried to leave some papiermache sculptures in a popular park, but the day passed and only one was taken! They had a tag on them indicating that the figure belonged to whoever found it, but people just looked at them and passed them by. I think since it was so visible they were too shy to touch them. Alas, the only one who went to a new home that day was picked up by a kid.

I just sent in my questionnaire!  I already bought some of my supplies and I'm excited to get started! 

I agree with everyone else - the more, the merrier!  After all, more swappers means more fun stuff to abandon and see  Smiley.

Calluna, your altered book sounds amazing and I love the fun of mystery the note stirs up!  It would be so neat to find something like that and then realize that you could keep it!

Procrastination is killing me slowly...I'm going to put an end to that first thing tomorrow!

Wish I could do this, but I don't have the time right now. I'll definately be stalking the gallery though Smiley

I think that's an interesting thought, when choosing where to leave it, that too exposed might discourage people from investigating and taking the object, and that things that look like installations might not be taken home.  I'm thinking about bike baskets, and bus shelters at present.
