Sign me up!

I think your postage guideline should be 62 cents, since that's the cost for one ounce with a rigid object.

Well I was working on Butterfly twinchies this morning for Robin's Twinchies Group Challenge and it got me in the mood to work on these today. The backgrounds have blue watercolor sky and water that didn't scan well.

bluelotusflower
05-13-2009, 12:59 AM
they are real -- actually aquarium sand.

That's brilliant, Spiced! I never thought of adding sand to my stash of art supplies.

My birds are ready to fly, hopefully tomorrow.

bluelotusflower

bluelotusflower
05-18-2009, 11:06 PM
I believe the "bird with no name" is a cormorant.

HHC
05-19-2009, 12:03 AM
Yes, the bird with no name is a cormorant. :D I got all the images from a falling apart vintage bird book I found in the free books at the library.

Ethereal_sheep
05-19-2009, 08:35 AM
Here are mine :) Canadian Goose, Great Blue Heron, Royal Tern (I think) , and Black Skimmer.

Yippee! I can't wait to see what lovelies come in the mail. :D

Ethereal_sheep
06-02-2009, 09:40 PM
Yeah...I'll try not to stalk the mail carrier. :X

Lily Lemon
06-03-2009, 02:34 PM
Ok. They're going out today! I got a little slowed down because some swappers didn't have envelopes, some had envelopes but no address on them, some had envelopes but enough postage, etc, etc! (we're all friends here so I know I can say that without you all feeling scolded!:)) Linda sent extra money and some of you sent extra loose postage so I think it'll all work out. I want to walk them in to the P.O. to get them doublechecked for postage so expect them to go postal in about an hour.

bluelotusflower
06-03-2009, 03:58 PM
Ugh. I think I didn't send an envelope. So sorry, L.L! :dull: Mea culpa, mea culpa!

Ethereal_sheep
06-03-2009, 04:24 PM
Haha. I forgot the return address I think. I didn't even think about return addresses until I read it in the directions for another swap! ^_^ Sorry!

Lily Lemon
06-03-2009, 10:35 PM
It's all ok! I only mention these things as an excuse for taking two days to send them out!
