Cards Due: April 15, 2008

This swap is about chairs! Lawn chairs, rocking chairs, armchairs, office chairs - a seat for one! Your favorite chair, a chair you would like to own, your fantasy chair...look about you for inspiration and use your heart and imagination! Show us your best chairs, without occupants.

Any medium is welcome - as long as it is an original work of art that you are proud of, find it hard to part with it, and would be happy to receive yourself. A chair (or chairs) should be the focal point of your piece.

Swap details:
-Put your user name, real name, and swap name on the back of your cards.
-Protect your work - use plastic ATC sleeves or something similar, reinforce your mailing with a card or other cardstock, and add an extra bit of tape to your envelope closure for good measure!
-Include a self-addressed envelope with your user name and swap name on the back.
-U.S. participants: include a stamp with the appropriate postage on your return envelope (SASE)
-Non-U.S. participants: I will cover postage, but include a self-addressed envelope.
-Dates for sign-up, withdrawal, and due dates are firm. I will mail out cards within two weeks of the final due date.
-No bulky cards or heavy embellishments, please. Cards must be able to fit into a standard ATC sleeve.
-I will PM my address once you sign up.

Wow Barb - this one has been challenging for me. I decided to try and draw 2 of my cards and only use collage on one of them. As I have stated before, I am not an artist, but a doodler/crafter. I have been stretching my wings and trying to do more actual pen to paper type art.

I have been pleasantly suprised at the outcome of these cards and hope you are too! I will post scans of them once I can stay home long enough to get them scanned. They will hopefully be in the mail by Saturday morning.

Thanks Barb for this opportunity :D

Jo, nice chairs! I love the church pew, especially - - I'm enjoying seeing what kind of chairs people end up selecting. I hadn't thought of a pew, but it's perfect!

I'm beginning to wonder where my cards are. I sent some to the UK the same day from the same location and they have arrived already.

I hope they make it soon. There is no way I can remake them and get them there on time now.

I received my Chairs yesterday and what an impressive set of chairs! Not only are they each beautiful in their own right, but all three look fabulous together! Thank you Barb for a fun and well-run swap and thanks goes to Jamie Gage, Pennyquilter, and Irma. Barb, I have left your iTrader and I will individually "rep" the three players I mentioned above.

I received my cards on Friday (or rather my neighbor received them and passed them on to me), but haven't had a chance to get on here. I will leave reps and itrader tomorrow. Thanks to Paperfairys, Pauseability, and Amyfaerie and also to Barbcards, of course.
