"Bodacious Bevy of Bell Peppers" Swap

Swap Due Date ~ April 2, 2012
Sign Up Date ~ Doesn't matter, just give enough time to get them made and sent but please don't rush the cards....we'd love to have your best work thank you!
Withdraw Date ~ Doesn’t matter. Please just communicate.
Number of Cards ~ 3:3
Number of Participants ~ UNLIMITED
(international welcome and I will pick up postage although US $1.00 is always appreciated)
Medium ~ Hand Drawn/Hand Painted/Colored (background can be mixed media but hand drawn bell pepper/peppers in some form are imperative). Well done whimsical is also welcome.

I think that everyone can agree that our friend, the bell pepper, lends itself to a variety of interpretations. This tasty veggie features the three colors of green, red and yellow as well as multiple colors on an individual pepper depending on the ripeness of that particular plant.


Making Your Cards:

1. Cards need to be to me by April 2nd.
2. All cards must be 2.5 x 3.5 inches!!!
3. Make cards you are proud to show off and that you would be happy to receive in a swap!
4. Medium is hand drawn with hand painting/coloring
5. Put username, real name, swap name, and date on back of each card so that players can leave rep points easily.
6. Appropriate cards feature a hand drawn/colored bell pepper/peppers in some form or another whether it be the focal point, on the plant, in a bowl or in groups but please make it the central theme.
7. Please make each card original! NO PRINTS PLEASE!!!
8. Please don't rush to finish, producing less than your best effort.
9. I swap out like for like/effort for effort cards.
10. Hostess card as usual not required but always treasured immeasurably.

Mailing Your Cards:

1. Protect ALL your cards in plastic sleeves.
2. Include self addressed stamped envelope (business size preferred).
3. International please include LARGE address label. If you have a dollar or US postage to help with the cause that would be wonderful but not required.
4. If mailed late, I will swap out with other late cards, but no guarantees.
5. Write username and swap name on your envelopes please!
6. Please PM me when the cards are ready to mail and I will provide the mailing address.

If I have forgotten anything, be sure to let me know please and I'll add it to the lists!!

Come join in and make this swap a colossal “Bodacious Bevy of Bell Peppers”!

I love to cook with them also. There is a little produce stand near my Costco which always features a bag of soft bell peppers (all colors) for 1.00. They are great for stirring up in a goulash.

just got back from the grocery and a package of 3 bell peppers (1 red, 1 green, and 1 yellow) was like $7.50 for the package...Whew! to find the pictures of peppers I took at Dallas's Farmers market many many years ago....on a floppy disc (lol).

Yikes! That is pricey. Make something delicious with them after you paint them of course.

02-16-2012, 08:18 PM
Very nice....watercolors is a hard medium! Is it OK to put pictures of our cards for the swap in our gallery? Or do we need to wait til after the swap is over?

I encourage players to put their swap cards in their personal galleries. That way the whole community can admire them.

It's nice being retired....you can work all day and night (if needed) (or on a roll) and not worry about alarm clocks when you do get to bed. How do I post the pics to the thread? I tried copying and pasting. Apparently no success :((((

I know what you mean about being retired. I often burn the midnight oil working on cards and other art projects.....it's so addicting. I don't know how I found the time to work! I sent a pm about how to post photos. There are two methods. If you have a hard time with that one, here is a link on how to post thumbnail pictures.

If you open the post reply instead of just writing a quick reply there's a paper clip picture on the tool bar above where you write and it opens a little window to upload your pics...
I can't wait until I'm retired, or at least until the kids are all at school full time hehe then I can catch up on sleep :D

02-17-2012, 11:16 AM
Thanks pixiecorpse! That is a new way I haven't used and it sounds super easy. I know of two other ways too. I will try yours next time. I'll pm webbbugg and let her know just to be sure.

Add me, please.

All this talk about stuffed peppers makes me think that I ought to run out to the grocery store and buy some peppers for stuffing.

And to add to the discussion about retirement: I have now been retired slightly more than 6 months and I have yet to be bored. What a fun life I am having now that my time is my own.

02-20-2012, 09:41 AM
Its very nice to have them made and sent with plenty of time to spare :D
I don't think I'd have time to get bored either when I finally retire. I have so many ideas left to do they will take me years and years :D

I've been trying to retire for a year now. My previous employer keeps asking me to do "one more project". But the pay is good. I'm STILL looking forward to retirement. I've been putting things off for a year, so now I really won't get bored....or finished (with housecleaning)LOL!

Pochadiva
02-20-2012, 08:49 PM
I thought sure my house would be in order by now. I've been retired for almost a year and a half but things keep cropping up that need my attention outside of my household. But I never exclude my time for art!

JSilver

A Yellow and An Orange Bell Pepper (watercolor)
Three Bell Peppers (watercolor)
Two Red Peppers (watercolor)
Peppery (Paint Chip art)

Here are my cards. I will probably get them mailed tomorrow. I bought the reds, yellow and orange to make stuffed peppers as planned. Then I couldn't make the meal last night because I hadn't finished using them as models for the cards. So, tonight it is stuffed peppers.

02-22-2012, 08:17 PM
Gorgeous cards Jo! Thanks for including and extra too.

I have put onions, ground round, rice, tomatoes and salsa in my peppers...also you can put egg and seasoned croutons. You can almost do a sort of meatloaf inside a pepper!

Still burning the midnight oil on #4, yellow pepper, but am hoping to have in the mail tomorrow. Here are the three that are done.

Wow.....Blissfully outstanding woman! Can't wait to see these stunners in person.

Oh why do I keep checking in when I'm hungry and the cupboards are full of dull bland food!
Fantastic and delicious looking peppers!! I need to go get something tasty to eat!

I sent my bell peppers to the wrong address. Now they wont make it in time. Theyre in canada right now.

Maybe they will....keeping our fingers crossed!

Whew! Am off to the post office now. With any luck they should get there in plenty of time. The one benefit of waiting till the end is that you don't have to wait too long for returns:).

Here is the last one. Kind of simplistic but works ok I think. Anyone else think yellow is hard?

Hehe that's so true Sameo! Feel like forever since Diva got my cards hehe
And yep yellow is a hard colour :D
Although getting them done early and mailed means you don't get cold feet seeing all the fantastic work that follows :D

Peppers went to the post office this morning. Hope they make it on time. The date kind of slipped away from me on this one.

You should be fine. I always give a few extra days for stragglers if I know they are on the way. Can't wait to see them in person!

Received Heidi2323's delightful cards today. The softness of the colored pencils is really appealing. Thanks so much for the extra card Heidi!

I should have the remaining cards in my hands within the next couple of days and then I will focus on trading them out. Hopefully I will have them mailed out before the end of this week.

The artwork submitted has been spectacular! What a fulfilling swap this has been. Thanks to all for your impressive efforts!

Thanks for your patience. I sure hope they arrive by no later than Saturday. One set went to a wrong address in Canada and the other set was mailed last Saturday. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Pochadiva
04-07-2012, 05:41 PM
thanks.....still waiting....I'm giving it until Monday's mail. I'm a little concerned that they may have gotten lost in the mail. I've had some of my personal cards disappear into the void before as a matter of fact. I just hope someone out their is enjoying them!

Happy Easter all! Anyone using any bell peppers in their recipes today? I hope, I hope the missing cards show up tomorrow!

JSilver
04-08-2012, 05:56 PM
I'm sure they'll show up. That's really my biggest fear with swaps: mailnapping. I had to stop mailing my envelopes from work cuz someone recognized my decorated envelopes as possibly containing money or at least stamps and art. I lost several sets of ATCs that way.

It's not your fault!

Isn't that awful! I've had some players accidentally send them to the wrong address before and didn't discover it until the post office sent them back. Just hope these babies show up tomorrow!
