Yes yes!! please count me in - thanks!

Lily Lemon

YAY! Welcome to both of you! I think now it's looking like a "real" proper swap!

On another note, I was researching tropical birds and I was amazed at how broad that category is! There are a lot of birds that I never realized are "tropical." I can't wait to see what everyone makes!

Hey lilylemon,
I wanted to join, but the due date is earlier than I had hoped, and my "spaces" for swaps due in March are already filled. But, I will keep an eye on things, and if I clear my other March swaps ahead of time, I'll head back to this one!!

Lily Lemon
02-11-2009, 05:46 PM

mine are done - they're going in the mail tomorrow - (and there's an extra as a thank you for hosting) here's a peek
(the toucan and the amazon parrot are actual photos I took at the Bronz Zoo a few years ago. I printed them on paper and altered them a little with pens and markers - they came out pretty good!)

Hi Lilylemon,
My tropical birds are finished, but not in the mail yet. I didn't think they were due until the 20th of March. Please tell me you didn't change the date!!

Lily Lemon
03-03-2009, 12:28 AM
Oh, crap! I mistyped! For some reason I had MArch 5 in my head for some reason. Now that I think about it, I think I have a hair appointment on that day. Totally disregard my brain fart!

No problem. I have brain lapses all the time. :) Here are the birds. They will be flying your way soon!
Thanks!

Could you photograph it Lily? I meant to but forgot.

It was easy to make, I can post a pattern if anyone else wants to make one. It's merely a cube with a picture on the top (I thought about making a hole so you could hang it but my punch wasn't long enough to reach the middle) and trading card sleeves taped to the side to slot the pics into (I used the ones I bought by mistake, made for YuGiOh cards, not regular cards, they're too narrow for ATCs and cut them down to just under 2 inches tall so it's easy to slide the cards in and out).

Lily Lemon
03-10-2009, 11:08 AM
I'll take a photo and post it later today!:)

Rain Pebble
