Lady Liberty

One of the most recognizable women in the world, this swap is in her honor.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v614/pkeflin/statue-of-liberty-2.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v614/pkeflin/statue-of-liberty-2.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v614/pkeflin/statue-of-liberty-2.jpg

This symbol of Liberty and Freedom is not standing still or at attention in the harbor, she is moving forward, as her left foot tramples broken shackles at her feet, in symbolism of the United States's wish to be free from oppression and tyranny. The seven spikes on the crown represent the Seven Seas and seven continents. Her torch signifies enlightenment. The tablet in her hand represents knowledge and shows the date of the nation's birth, July 4, 1776.
See more information on her history at Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Liberty).
She has inspired thousands - how does she inspire you?

Thanks JAD! They are a mix of real and faux postage, a magazine image, some vintage machinery tape, tissue paper, glazes of gesso, black paint, marker and paint pen, and a bit of pigment pearlex powders, so they have green and blue SHINE. :)

Pam I see no "rec'd" by my name, :( didn't they arrive yet?

they really should have.

PamPie
04-21-2008, 12:03 AM
Susan, it seems like they should have arrived by now - but I don't have them yet! :wideeyed:
Maybe tomorrow?!

ScramperSue

Susan, it seems like they should have arrived by now - but I don't have them yet! :wideeyed:
Maybe tomorrow?!

Is it possible they are in a pile of mail somewhere?(I only ask, cause this has happened in my house)
as a former PO worker and being married to one...it is very hard for me to believe it hasn't reached you yet, this is sad:swoon: this very well may be my first ever lost piece of mail.:dull:

PamPie
04-23-2008, 12:12 AM
I love receiving mail, and when I arrive home each day, one of the first things I do is sort through what arrived. It's always a treat to discover fun mail among the junk and bills :yes: When I'm hosting a swap, I pay even more attention to what's come through the slot - I don't want to miss anything. You may not believe your envie hasn't arrived, but honestly, it hasn't. When a swap envie comes, I immediately take it to my computer, and have itrader given that same night or following morning - I want to make sure a swapper knows their art has arrived. I want to be able to do that for you too Susan! I remember one time I sent in my cards for a swap and although I sent them in in plenty of time, they didn't arrive until three weeks following swap deadline - no rhyme or reason as to why. If I could hunt yours down in the postal world, I would! There are still several more days - hopefully they will make it very soon... Sorry - wish I had better news...

Laura (wolfwynd), your cards arrived today!

ScramperSue
04-23-2008, 01:40 AM
I know, i just figured you might have a kid like my 20 yr old that brings the mail in and sometimes dumps it wherever she pleases. then i may miss something for a few days Arrrgh...
anyway:::sniff-sniff::: i am very sad that they are not there yet. please keep me posted and give me enough notice to make others if i must :(
thanks, Sue

ps...thanks for the good thoughts tonight also :)

ScramperSue
04-24-2008, 04:01 AM
Well, here is what they looked like. This is mine, and I also included one for you Pam.
This is really bothering me that they are not there...they were mailed on 4/10.

PamPie
04-24-2008, 05:48 PM
Lookin' good, Sue! Still three mail days left - today (since I'm not home from work yet), tomorrow and Saturday - there's still hope!

PamPie

Ladies, I just wanted to say thank you very much for participating in the Lady Liberty swap :yes: I have done the ol' switch-a-roo, and card mailing is happening this week - here's to hoping you enjoy your returns :) When you receive your envie, please consider leaving thank yous in the form of rep points, PM's or itrader as appropriate. Thanks again, and see you around the forums and galleries!!
