Hoot, Hoot! An owl swap!


This swap is for owls of all kinds. Owls can be in any media, and I encourage experimentation! I plan on doing some fun mixed media owls myself!

Please send your best work and send all original cards. Digital work is fine, provided that each card is a unique composition and single edition for the swap.

Swap Details/rules:

1) ALL Participants - please write your real name and userId on the back of all of your cards. Please mail cards in plastic protectors (the flimsy kind is fine). Please write your userID and amount of cards on the back of your envelope.

2) US participants: send a SASE with 42 cents(3 owls) or 62 cents (6 owls). If you plan on sending a bubble envelope or large envelope instead of a regular-sized envelope, note that shipping rates have changed and you should probably have $1 of postage or so on it.

3) International participants: Please send me an address label. I would appreciate an extra card or some country-specific stamps/empherma since I will be covering your return postage (a little under $1 USD per envelope at our new rates) but this is not necessary. I will have to limit international participants to 20 members b/c of shipping costs.

4) All cards are due IN MY HANDS June 10th. Returns will be mailed promptly after the deadline and late cards will be returned to you or, if I have enough, swapped with other late cards. We have lots of time to complete this swap, so please be on time.

5) You are welcome to send one or two sets of cards. If you are sending an extra set of cards, please send extra stamps to cover the increased shipping (62 cents instead of 42 cents).

6) Please PM me for my address when you are ready to ship . I leave feedback for all cards right before I swap them.

Don't forget that stamps are going up so the price is higher than 41 cents.
I would love to do this swap, but I need to make sure I have the time to make the cards before my trip to china...Can I let you know later in the swap..

Welcome inkadinkado!

Stormarlea--I'd make the lines bolder on the outsides. I don't know about color--they are nice B&W. Not sure!

nowzem
05-07-2008, 12:05 PM
I love them, I think color would be nice, but they are beautiful black and white too--I love the background... maybe adriayna is right and you could just make the black lines bolder with no color. Beautiful owls though-you have mega talent! :D! My cute little hooters are still in their black and white stage too :D

stormarela
05-08-2008, 02:11 AM
Thanks for the comments! I added a bit more pencil, and mounted them on dark grey cardstock. There is a picture in my gallery.

Ok everyone! I've made it through my stack of mail. Thanks to your patience while I was out of town! :)

I have so many owls here!

malinmaskros - wonderful work! Thank you for the extras :)
Hogarth - lovely owls! I love the fabric ones! Thank you too for the extra :)
Mynameisjenn- great stuff! I love the mixing of media.
Misskoolaid - great work too! These are so fun. Thank you for the extra! :)
Merricat - too cute! Wonderful work!
Stormarlea - I love the text-based owls! Thank you too for the extra :)

I know you *probably* just overlooked it, but I sent an extra as well--the envelope didn't come apart and lose one did it? :D (not that that's anything to smile about!)

Hmm..I wonder if Reuben put a stack of mail somewhere he's not telling me. Let me double check--two envies sounds like there is some somewhere else! This is what happens when you put men in charge of things, haha.

adriayna
05-18-2008, 01:11 PM
I'm off to talk to him now, clean up a little, and see where my missing stack of mail is!

Reuben's a sweetie, really, but he's not always on top of things like he should be, haha.

adriayna
05-18-2008, 01:15 PM
Ok, I found them. Both envies! Yay!

They were in HIS mail stack. I looked through to make sure there weren't any more, and I think I have them all. Haha.

I had wonderful experiences with owls in my childhood, so I thought this swap would be easy. I was wrong. I've struggled & struggled. Finally, today I had a breakthrough with "Owl with Attitude."

More owls have flown in!

Busymom - a colorful set!
Poppiesinjuly- yours too! Nice! And thank you for the extra!
Eno - I love the different media youused. Thank you too for the extra.

Also, PS to eno - The bubble envie you mailed required an additional 50 cents postage. With the new rates, bubble envies cost a LOT more to mail. Just a FYI! :)

05-23-2008, 06:22 PM
Here's my second owl... Actually, it's my third; the second's in the trash. Has anyone ever watched that cake designing show on the Food Channel? They say that if you look under some of the unusal elements on a cake there's probably a thumbprint or some other error. This owl's like that. Don't look too hard :unsure:. lol

Great! Thanks for letting me know.

I wanted everyone to know that I will be out of town starting tomorrow again. I have a conference to go to in Austin, TX, and then will be visiting the Dallas-Fort Worth ATC group for a sleepover. I return late on Tuesday night (June 3), so I will be updating my swaps the following wednesday. As before, Reuben will stay here and get my mail, hopefully this time putting it in the right place. Thanks!

Thanks

LavenderLizard
05-30-2008, 02:19 PM
I mailed my owls today! They are packaged with my beads for the other swap in a bubble envelope, but I enclosed a separate envelope for the owl returns to help you keep them organized (and some extra postage, since my cards are felt-thick!). One of my cards is actually two (a gold/silver pairing)--it's meant to be traded as one, though. There's four all together--please keep one yourself!

sometomato
06-01-2008, 09:13 AM

Adriayna - my cards were mailed today.
I was inspired by a photo of an owl peeking out of a hole in a tree, but I'm not sure that translates to my cards. I carved the stamp and used speedwell inks that are water soluable. On some, I rubbed out some of the ink with a wet paper towel and got a muted effect. Some of my cards look like this...

LavenderLizard
06-04-2008, 05:20 PM
I love those muted colors! Very cute. I do some stamp carving too--the owl I carved was a lot more stylistic for this swap, though...lots of flowing lines...I like your "peeping through the tree" stamp!

sometomato
06-04-2008, 06:09 PM
YIKES! Dana, I mailed the cards on Tuesday afternoon as expected, but evidently was not thinking clearly! Today the envelope returned to me at home! I had put the return envie on the outside and the one with YOUR address INSIDE!!!!! Do I feel stupid?????? :eek: :huh::(

I will mail these again tomorrow.

It is with great regret and dismay that I must offer my apologies and ask to be withdrawn from this swap. My owls are done, but I can not mail until June 7 and they will not make it in time. I was called out of town; so packed atcs to take along and forgot them all at home. Not very smart on my part. It is not fair to hold up the swap and I understand that. I am very sorry for goofing up, but opting out seems the correct thing for me to do at this point. I wish it were otherwise, but the error is all mine.

JAD
06-06-2008, 10:52 AM
Hi all,
Just a reminder that I will be out of town from June 7th until June 21st. If I owe any rep. points or I-traders, I will give them on my return.
See you when I return :)
