A few thank yous are definitely in order: first of all, to Diane Knott and to Thespa for both blogging about my proposed Swap - if it hadn't been for them I don't believe it would have happened; I am beyond grateful!
Here are the participants:
Diane Knott of Diane Knott's Musings
Thespa of Vintiquities Workshop
Susan of Suztats
Dorthe of Den Lille Lade
Marcia of The Painted Gift
Tess of The HeART of Words
Tina Marie of Patina Marie
Tina of One Wild Swan
Michele of Nook Cranny Gifts
Genevieve of GM Glitterglass
Elizabeth of Elizabeth Creates
Freda of Sew What's New
Marie of Spun By Me
Lucille - Lucille has not yet started a blog; she is a quilter, fibre and embellishment artist extraordinaire (and is also quite likely to be annoyed with me for saying so!)
I am thrilled and honoured that you would all participate in this swap; I have been to all the blogs and can attest to the outstanding work that each participant will contribute.
Ladies, I think we're in for a real treat!
And so, to reiterate:
All artworks will be 5" square
You'll send 5 pieces in for the swap and will receive 5 pieces in exchange
You may use any medium or media you wish, or a combination - it's all up to you!
Please try to have them to me by September 6 (If you post them from anywhere in the USA by Sept 1 they should be here around then, give or take a day or two).
I will do the Swap and send parcels back to each of you within two days of the receipt of the last parcel, but will keep you up to date as they arrive.
I have been pondering the workings of the swap and will email all of you with a suggestion that I think will give a completely random result. I am always open to suggestions though so please feel free to voice your thoughts - it's our swap, not mine.
I am so thrilled!
Let the creating begin!!!
