Swap Due Date - June 30
Signup/withdraw date -June 14
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants --unlimited

SO inspired by the http://www.beautifulwomenproject.com/ "Beautiful Women Project" I decided to run a swap. A woman's body is gorgeous and curvy and skinny and fat and beautiful. Yet alot of times we are so critical with ourselves. Our bodies are the vessels for lifetime of stories. What does your body say, what is your story?

Create three torso shaped ATCs. THAT means you can use the standard 2.5 x 3.5 and draw the torso on the card and art, OR you can actually make a torso shaped ATC. Art up your body, celebrate it for all that it is and all that it tells.

POSTAGE REQUIREMENT: If you live in the US, ONE dollar is required along with an envie with your address printed on the front.
If you live in Canada ONE stamp is required for return along with an envie with your address printed on the front.
If you are international you are required to pay your own return postage. If you would like to PM me and we can work something out please do and your standard envie with your address printed on the front.

BULKY cards are welcome. HOWEVER for each bulky card you must send in double the postage. Usually an extra dollar or stamp per card.
Bulky includes anything raised. Not including glaze.

Recently i did three torso cards. Anyone want to explore our "Beautiful Women Project."

ANg

PS: ALL mediums are welcome and to quote Ms Zhenia "If you are apologizing for your work, keep working at it."
If cards are rec'd that are sloppy, glue not sticking, a card not well thought out, i will return it to you. please also make this YOUR work, collage is welcome , digital is welcome , hand drawn is welcome. I want cards that are thought provoking, well thought out cards.

I'm so excited about this swap that I already started working on it. This is what I have done so far but it's still a work in progress. I'm doing at least 2 more cards so these might not be the one I send, depending on how the others turn out. I decided to cut the torso shape instead of leaving the empty spots on the sides and above the shoulders (they were scanned against a white background here.)

amyfaerie
04-30-2008, 01:49 PM
really great stuff, misskoolaid! i am tickled about these, too--i just cut out some templates about 10 minutes ago myself! LOL!

I just made my first! I used some overhead transparancies my Mom was tossing (she's a history teacher) layered with pigment powders and tissue for the torso...I think it's a cool effect! Do I need to crop it more (just midsection) or is the neck/hips okay too?

this project has been so much fun! thanks for hosting ANg :D I think my story is like this: every body is beautiful and no matter what you look like, I can find something beautiful about you! I want my cards to portray this! So, I want to do color--but I haven't decided if I am going to do more realistic or more fanciful yet! Or what media I will use to complete the goal either! :)

katilady
05-10-2008, 09:59 PM

Maggie you only mailed them on the 13th, its only the 18th early am, so really its only been three mailing days, as we don't get mail on saturday and also depends if you mailed them early fri or late friday. late fri would not even count as a mailing day so that would take us down to two mailing days, so with that being said its a bit too early to be disappointed. :)

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I am sorry i misuderstood. Gosh thats two sets this swap.
I am sorry.
Hopefully they will turn up.
I have called canada post and lodged a complaint, not sure what good it will do however i did it none the less.

altermyworld
06-18-2008, 06:14 PM
Sophie, its very frustrating on many levels, for me and for the player.
I called Canada post and told them whats been going on, my returns from the Spring Prints got lost coming FROM Canada and now these two envies, and while they can't track them, they all are only envies they can ref should it continue to happen. Hopefully not but things happen.
Its all stressing me out.

Is there anything we can do? I mean if we to tracking from the US would it track into Canada?

altermyworld
06-18-2008, 06:23 PM
No rockstargirl its not possible.
I have extra cards and while i can't replace 6 of them i can replace a few.
they will still get cards.

I have an extra card that I made but didn't send...would you like it?

ScramperSue
06-18-2008, 10:35 PM
no you can only track in the us or global express mail

rockstarsgirl
06-18-2008, 10:37 PM
ah, ok. good to know. (kinda silly since we're all on the same continent if you ask me.) I guess sending ups or fedex for tracking would get insanely expensive very quickly

altermyworld
06-18-2008, 11:44 PM
thank you to all who have pm'd me and put message is this thread, i am ok, i intend on sending both participants a few cards, not the entire three as i am giving away hostess cards and that is a bonus of hosting and will be out the extra monies for postage. I do appreciate each of you.
Now with that being said, Hey Maggie and Scramper Sue i need for you to send me your addy via PM.
Thanks,
ANg

ScramperSue
06-19-2008, 02:31 PM
Ang, I sooo appreciate that offer, sincerely. but as it is NOT your fault my cards went missing I dont expect anything... but if you like, just send me one, and maybe someone else on the thread would be willing to send one... then I would have 3 (which would fill one row in an album :)) as I still have the one I kept here for myself (it is built like me, BWAAHAHA ;)) so a slender woman and or a pregnant woman would be a great addition to my FAT CHICK, LOL!!! I think you already have my addy.

nowzem
06-19-2008, 02:53 PM
I have a pregnant woman in my gallery available. (I made too many cards :D) Let me know if either of you whose cards were lost by the lovely PO wants it for FREE, hehe :D

altermyworld

I love all you Beautiful Women. Your generosity is what this project is really all about. I have made new cards and am on my way to the post office to mail them by the fastest way possible. If they make it in time that will be great, but if not, then just keep them, ANg. Hugs to all of you!

I "priority mailed" mine yesterday, so they're sure to get to you in time. I've loved the cards that I've seen posted for this swap, and can hardly wait to see my returns. This was such a good idea for a swap

heymaggie
06-19-2008, 07:23 PM
OK, I'm back from the post office and I sent them International Express mail and they should get to you in 5 business days. I wanted them to be similar to the ones I sent before and they are, but not exactly. I think I even like this batch a little better, and I put a small scan of the original ones on the backs. I'm getting ready to put pics in my gallery of the new ones. The old ones are already in there.

altermyworld
06-25-2008, 10:16 AM
Several sets rec'd today feedback left, Glorious cards rec'd, a few are left to get here i would image these will go out around July 5. No later so if your cards have not reached me they will be swapped if i have any with others.

You know we are at opposite ends of the country, but geez....it seems like they might be using carrier pigeons at my end and dog sleds at your end sometimes.

Drives me nuts when I actually send early in the cycle and then things still don't make it until the very end...

altermyworld
06-27-2008, 09:27 PM
i don't remember when did you mail them, i think about the 18th?
I know it drives me crazy also.
Ang

coffeelatte
06-29-2008, 09:21 AM
No, my message archive shows I corresponded with you that day (the 18th), but I sent them the first week of June. Which isn't making me any happier, looking at the calendar....although I think I've had other swap packages take about that long to make their way to Ontario.

altermyworld
06-29-2008, 11:08 AM
