Trash and Stash Bookmark Swap 2.0, due July 27, 2020

This is the second bookmarks swap I have done but I have made some slight changes, so be sure to read everything before joining! I have changed the number of bookmarks to be made, and the size of them.

Welcome to the Trash and Stash Bookmark Swap! All bookmarks should measure 2" x 6" and be made from a sturdy material (such as tissue box, cereal box or the back of writing tablet, etc.) PLEASE don’t send anything flimsy!! They may be laminated if you choose, but it is not necessary.

Swap Requirements:

This swap is a mixed media collage challenge to create Bookmarks from trash items which I will provide. You must use at least 3 trash items on each bookmark. Be willing to think outside the box and use items in different and new ways. Each envelope will have the same types of items. Some items are identical for all players, other items are of the same type but slightly different.

This is a NO WITHDRAWAL swap. While you won’t know what is in the envelope until you receive it, if you request and receive an envelope you are required to complete the swap. (I have listed the contents of the envelope in the first comment of this thread, in case you want a general idea of what you would be receiving.) No bookmarks, no communication may result in neutral iTrader.

PM me with your mailing address, so I can send out your trash items.

Swap is 3 for 3 bookmarks. Host bookmarks are not required, but will be treasured if you should choose to send one.

Each bookmark must be 2" x 6" on a sturdy base. You may have curved edges or shaped corners if you wish. You may also punch a hole at the top and thread through a ribbon or yarn. Just be sure to provide any extra postage required for heavy objects or bulkiness. Protect your bookmarks. I am sending plastic sleeves in the trash envelopes for this purpose. (Two bookmarks can easily fit in one sleeve). If you played in my previous bookmark swap, you will have received all your returns in these sleeves.

You must use at least three trash items per bookmark. As always, use can be more than attaching the item, you can alter any item or use it as a tool. You may shred it, singe it, or glue it mosaic style if you like. You can rip it, paint it, turn it around backwards, modify it. But you must use it somehow.

We all have different skills so please send work you are proud of. While I can’t guarantee media, I will do my best to swap effort for effort.

All bookmarks need to be labeled with your real name, and your AFA username, so others can leave you their thanks via YouRock!s. Also, you must list on the back what trash items you used. Or you can enclose a separate list of the trash used for each bookmark if you prefer.

TO SIGN UP

Post to the thread to sign up. State that you have read all the details and that you are aware that this is a no withdrawal swap.

Send me a private message with your mailing address. I will mail you an envelope of trash.

Once you have messaged me your address, there is no withdrawal.

POSTING TO THE THREAD

~Please post to the thread when you have received your trash items.
~We all love seeing creations along the way. If possible, please post your bookmarks in the thread and list which trash items you have used.
~Please post to the thread when you have mailed your finished bookmarks to me.

MAILING YOUR BOOKMARKS

~Protect each bookmark either by laminating or using the provided sleeve.
~Please spread and lightly tape bookmarks inside the envelope, as flat and even as possible, using washi or painters tape.
~Send a label with your name and address legibly printed or typed on it. I can provide envelopes.
~ I will cover the postage to mail the trash to you.
~ US Players: Please enclose as much postage as it takes to send your bookmarks to me for mailing your returns to you.
~ Try to ensure that your envelope is no thicker than 1/4".
~International Players, please include $1 U.S. OR 1 Global Forever stamps, covering my initial mailing to you and your returns mailing later. I will take care of any additional postage if necessary.
~I live in Alabama. Please be aware of the mailing time from your location to me and to mail your bookmarks in time for me to receive them by the due date. Late bookmarks will be returned to sender and a neutral iTrader given.

AFTER YOUR RETURNS ARE RECEIVED

When you receive your returns, please post in the swap thread that you have received them. Don’t forget to leave an iTrader for me and You Rocks! to the other artists. It is always nice to tell the player which bookmark you received, too. On the first thread of the swap, click on the name of the person you received the bookmark from and it will take you to one of their posts so you can easily leave a YouRock! for them.

Any questions? PM me or post it to the thread as others may have the same question but are too shy to speak up.

Who wants to play?

Your trash list sounds super inspiring, and I love bookmarks, and making them! But I can't promise to commit at this point, so I will give it another thougth and finish some other swaps.

Meanwhile, I would really love my bookmarks not laminated, since I think mixed media does not look the same with a plastic cover of sorts. Do you think it would be possible to ask for a preference like this in case I do join? I realize it won't be possible if most other players do like to laminate theirs. I wouldn't even know where to have it done, for that matter.

Laminating was just an option thrown out there. I don't recall anyone in the last bookmark swap laminating theirs, although some did modge podge over them. As I said in the description, I will be sending sleeves to send them in, so it is not that important to seal them in any way. I just wanted to make sure that they don't fall apart in the mailing. I hope you decide to join us.

Hi there! I am ready to join, have read the rules and understand that this is a no withdrawal swap.

There's still almost one month for the mail to travel each way, if I'm ready to make my bookmarks quickly when the envie arrives. In the worst case of mail trouble, that is. So I think there should be enough time.

That said, in another swap I joined, my cards mailed on April 30th from Finland have not yet reached the host in the USA.

Some people have used it as a texture by painting over it and then lifting it off. Or you could use a tape runner and attach it, then sprinkle embossing powder or something like that to keep it from being sticky. Or maybe you could glue it down and cover it with tissue paper? Just some ideas.

I received a chunky that used chicken wire, and they stapled it down. Might not work on a bookmark, though...

Anyone else have good suggestions?

Sounds like a good plan! I do build in a little leeway when I host so that any stragglers will hopefully make it and I can still swap within the 90 day limit. I'm glad the envelope made it.

Thank you for everybody’s suggestions about attaching the screen thingy. But now I have to share my angst. I was making my bookmarks and for some reason I have noodled on these for so long it’s driving me crazy. I found in my trash a raccoon and little tiny binoculars that we’re going to look just perfect on him. I have been protecting these little binoculars and carefully putting them in a safe place......Until today. I was putting my collage together and poof they were gone. Does anybody feel my pain? It’s just driving me crazy. I have looked everywhere ....so my poor raccoon will not look nearly as intelligent as he was planned to be. Boo-hoo. Maybe I will just mail in my bookmarks and then whoever gets my raccoon can let me know because I am sure the moment they go in the mail I will find those silly things.

I do things like that ALL the time. I was just at my desk today and using a stylus on my phone. I didn't go anywhere or even turn my chair around but POOF the stylus was gone! I looked all over my desk for it, couldn't find it. About an hour later, I turned my chair around and it fell off the pile of swap shoe boxes I have NEXT to my desk and fell on the floor. How I did not hear it drop off my desk...who knows? Or I will find something stuck to my arm when I get up. :unsure:

Here are my bookmarks! They were really fun to make. However, I'm quite worried about how long the mail is taking between our countries right now - instead of the regular 1-2 weeks (max. three), it now doesn't seem that rare for it to take like 4-8 weeks.

I hadn't quite realized this yet at the time of signing up for the swap, and in a no-withdrawal swap, what else could I do than send my cards as soon as I was able to finish them. But let's see -- if it takes too long for you and the other swappers to wait, I will of course accept my bookmarks back or maybe we can consider a private trade. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for their prompt arrival.

We will hope for the best, and if they do not arrive on time (although there is a little leeway built into the due date) I will gladly make personal trades with you.

catladybj, your bookmarks have arrived safe and sound. Thank you for postage reimbursement and for the extra bookmark.

Now only waiting on the international mail. Everybody pray or send out good vibrations to get it here within the week! :D

I'm sorry to see my bookmarks haven't arrived. AngelJoy, you mentioned earlier that it might be possible to wait a bit, but now it's a week gone past the due date already, so I won't

...mind at all if you wish to swap now and not wait longer.

The way it seems now, it can just as well take another 2-4 more weeks for them to arrive.

I was hoping they would be in today's mail, but alas, not. I will swap out tonight and send the ones I received on their ways tomorrow. I will return yours to you, Amapola, if they show up. I know international mail (as well as domestic) has been somewhat unreliable lately. :(

NOTICE

All bookmarks (that were received) have been swapped out and will go out in tomorrow's mail. Please be sure to leave a YouRock! for each artist whose work you received. You can easily find one of their posts by going to the first post in this thread and click on their name.

I am not going out and about into the world even with a mask. So, I did not go to the post office to send these. I do have a postal scale at home and weighed them all and did my best to put on the proper postage. That being said, I have seen some very strange stuff happening in the postal system lately. SO, if I did NOT put enough postage on your returns, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know and I will PROMPTLY reimburse you. Just send me a PM and I will make it right!

Thank you all for playing, there was some very outstanding work done. I hope everyone is pleased with their returns. Please post to this thread when you receive them so I know that they are making it to their destinations, and so I know when to archive this swap.

Again, thanks for playing, it was a pleasure to be your host. I will be leaving a YouRock! to each of you who generously made a bookmark for me to let you know which one I chose (even though you made it pretty darn hard to settle on just one!!! hahaha)

Thanks so much to aginghippychic for the awesome flowers bookmark; Linda P. for the cool "build your own dreams"; and kehlenn for the the "world's most powerful woman".
