Hi all!

The people are starting to arrive!!! Great cards!

Hi Verna, I sent my cards to you today.

03-04-2008, 11:10 AM
Hi! Can you fill out the info at the top (Due Date, Sign Up Date, # Participants)? Thanks! :)

03-04-2008, 05:41 PM
Hi VBR! I was wondering if it is too late to drop...I don't see any info at the top of the page with dates....

I just found out I'm going on a trip the last 2 weeks of the month....WOOOOO!!! BUT...I don't think I'm going to be able to make the deadline because I have a mail art swap due the same time that is REALLY involved and is pretty much going to take up most of my time from now until I leave.

I hope this is ok...let me know if not, and I will certainly try to fit them in! ;)

These cards were really fun to make. They evolved much differently than I planned - almost as though the characters were on their own mission and I was just the one with the Photoshop tools!
The first is called Remember When...

This one almost made me cry when I made it: End of Dreams

And the last maybe too racy (you can see breast!) but I was playing with the concepts of good girl/bad girl (and/or the virgin/whore concept).
We call this Who Will She Be?

I hope those are okay. If the last one is inappropriate, let me know and I will make something else!

03-06-2008, 08:54 PM
I'll be mailing out my cards tomorrow. Hope they get to you......and not a neighbor...

my cards are going out tomorrow...here is what i came up with

03-10-2008, 04:48 PM
Hi everyone!!

Cards are arriving.

I updated the list to show which have arrived.

I absolutely love the cards. And, no that is not an inappropriate card up there. If I had to choose (if I was the little kid - I would opt for the naked lady. Saves time and money - no need to think about what to wear, or get dressed and no need to spend money on clothes - money that is better spent on art materials and books!!!!)

03-10-2008, 05:46 PM
Mine went in today's mail. You should be seeing them in a few days.

I'm a big hippy - even as a little girl I would have gone for the naked option...I still will in fine gardening weather in my nicely fenced backyard...:rolleyes:

03-12-2008, 02:27 AM
MIne are going in the post tomorrow

Hi all!

If by any chance you will not be able to complete this swap, please just drop me a line so I can get a count of how many will be in the final trade.

I know that the massive exodus and search for our new (and quite beautiful) home was very upsetting and lots of info and materials got lost in the shuffle. So that being said if you can't do the swap, no problem.

Thanks so much.

Hi, Just wondering if my cards ahave arrived yet, as I sent them quite a while ago, and I noticed there was no receipt posted on thread!!!!!! :unsure:

03-26-2008, 09:15 PM

Your cards have not arrived yet. When did you mail them off?

03-27-2008, 03:31 PM
Just checked - it was 2 weeks ago now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

03-29-2008, 11:00 AM
Ria - I am hoping they will arrive today, Saturday. Then, on Monday, I will get one more delivery of mail. So, hopefully they will show up. I know that it is very upsetting when you work hard on cards and then they seem to disappear into 'no where land' once mailed. I am sorry that this happened and am keeping my fingers crossed that the envelope arrives.


03-30-2008, 06:30 AM
Oh so am I, ( fingers crossed ), I sent something out just before Xmas to USA and it ended up coming back to me - incorrect address, even though I checked it - then resent and it went to Canada for weeks holiday before it arrived in the USA ???????????????? SPOOKY!

03-30-2008, 09:10 AM
Ria, it is not you writing the wrong address. It is the mail system. Sometimes I am amazed that letters and packages get where they are going safely as often as they do.

I am hoping they will arrive tomorrow.


04-03-2008, 06:08 AM
Okay, the cards are going out today. A few days late, but I wanted to wait for any last minute mail deliveries.

I have noted everyone whose cards arrived.

If any come in now, I will exchange them out with other late ones.

04-03-2008, 08:06 AM
yay! can't wait!

04-05-2008, 01:56 PM
