I HAVE ENOUGH REQUESTS! THANK YOU !!!!

This week I will be making some handmade paper. I have been making paper for 10 years, and find that it is WONDERFUL in ATC and mail art!

I would be happy to take some requests for colors and styles. Additionally, you can specify if you want thick or thin paper. Thick paper can be thicker than cardstock, and thin is a bit thinner than cardstock but still thicker than regular paper. I can make "REALLY THICK" paper on request too if you need it for chunky books or something. I can also make some with lots of "letters" in it--great for B&W work. Or asian themed...really, anything you want! All of my paper is recycled. I like to use a lot of teas and natural elements I have collected for inclusion.

For the paper, I'd like to trade:
rubber/polymer Stamps (vintage, swirls, trees/nature, and an atc back stamp)
ATCs on my chosen themes
Chunky book pages on my chosen themes
Fabric charms
Some tiny paintbrushes
handmade tiny books
Twinkling H2Os
Paint pens
Asian-themed empherma/collage materials (I especially want some of this!)
vintage glass buttons

I have some japanese paper if you are interested in that at all, I have four designs in big pieces and then strips that I buy as offcuts that are about 1/2 an inch or so. Also have some kimono fabric I can share!!

I would love some thinner paper in greens, yellows, or purples. I can trade some hell notes and joss paper and Chinese and Japanese text, if you are interested.

Oy: Yes, just tell me what you want now so that I can make it when I have my equipment out! :)

And I'd be happy to trade with everyone here!

Just list here what kinds you'd like (or an assortment) and I'll be making it this week :)

I would love an assortment of papers! I'm especially into the blues/greens/ and purple/burgundy shades, but anything, really, is great!! I'd like the thinner kind, but really, will be happy with anything! I can do cards for you on some of your themes...trees, maybe? Or whatever...!! I'll see what else I can come up with for trade. Thanks for the offer!

Hey Dana, how much are you wanting to trade for? Or maybe I should say how much are you making? I'd like to get a package together but knowing that would help me know what and how much to put in! And I think I'll need your addy again!

Uhm...well, it takes me about 1 hour to make 7-10 sheets from start to finish (including putting out materials, sizing them, drying them, ironing, etc). So I guess I can send them out in sheets of 5, or half sheets of 10 different ones. I can make a decent amount--it depends on how much interest there is! So maybe 5 sheets for 2 atcs, or a chunky book page? I dunno. Whatever you think its worth!

Ok, I think that is probably enough offers so my offer is taken! :)

Okie! I pulled together a small stash of asian ephemera: few sheets of joss paper, 6 hell notes (all different), 11 pages of Asian text (couldn't find Japanese so most is Chinese with 1 Vietnamese and including some Chinese/English dictionary pages and 1/2 page of a Chinese newspaper) and 1 red envie that has gold Asian figures and writing. If you think that's worth 5 pages of the thinner kind of paper I would like: yellow, green, purple, orange, and red. Let me know what you think! And if you PM me your addy I will send out early this week! Thanks for the offer Dana!

I'd love some of your paper for ATCs. Do you mind fabric and embroidery, or do you prefer painted? Trees, I see or is there anything else you'd like?
Blue is my favourite colour, but the colours already mentioned are fine with me, I'd basically take whatever you offered anyway :)
