    Yay! Sorry I haven't been putting my two cents in--I spent my "weekend" visiting all my grandparents. Very fun, not so internet-y. Well, Grammie is--I showed her the site and everyone's work and she was very impressed (she teaches classes on making ATC dolls, altered books and other stamped/collaged/found object art).

    Also--GLEE! I am soooo excited to get started on this project! Of course, I need to catch up with some other swaps and trades first, or I'll be in trouble! Yay, yay, yay!

    I miss my Gram...can we share yours, Siren? Pretty please?

    This is the first circle jer...journal I've done (newbieness revealed, be very afraid.) Are we to have simpler themes? Or can we be more specific?

    Be as specific or simple as you want to be! It's completely up to you. I think anyone in this group can handle just about anything.

    You may absolutely share my Grammie! She's great; I'm trying to get her to join (it all starts with that insidious "Look at how pretty everyone's art is, and the site is so easy to use..." but she's super busy teaching her own classes so I have to work on her some more!

    And it's my first journal swap too; I'm leaning toward picking a poem and letting everyone interpret it to their hearts' content!

    Yeah, my last G-ma died in 1994. I'm sorely lacking in grandparents! I want to share too!

    yea, i think i have a little bit of french blood! i thnk my ancestors were french who moved to ireland--they said this about my family: 'the barretts are more irish than the irish'. i think it's cause we like to drink whiskey and fight.

    so i have 2 themes i am tossing back and forth:
    the middle east (think women in hijab's, henna, islamic temples, arabic writing, opium dens etc).
    or
    death and rebirth (think phoenix rising from the ashes, kali ma, snake shedding it's skin, vultures, the only constant is change etc).
    what do people think of these? any preferences? nanner says she prefers death and rebirth, but i'd like to hear what everyone else thinks.

    thanks for your input. i'll prolly go that route. if i do i'll flesh it out a bit for ya'll

    i am going to take this opportunity to brag on my mom and make fun of her at the same time. she drew this pic for nanner. she called me up and made me look at asking 'can you tell who it is?' she asked my dad and my brothers respite worker the same thing. she really thought people wouldn't be able to tell! lmao!

    Okay, in the moley swap at iATCs, we're filling out the below form (that I've ruthlessly swiped from Shel/Sal) to give good details and expectations of our themes. Kati brought up that it might be nice to fill this out here, and I totally agree!!

    All participants need to fill out this form as completely as possible! The more info and samples, the better!

    1. My theme is:
    2. What I'm hoping for:
    3. Key concepts:
    4. Color scheme:
    5. Websites / Samples:

    ok, i'll be the first to post my theme:


    1. My theme is: death and rebirth

    2. What I'm hoping for:
    your artistic interpretation of this concept. i would like the pages to play off one another as much as possible.

    3. Key concepts: the phoenix, a snake shedding it's skin, persephone, inanna/ishtar, jesus and his resurrection, butterfly, metamorphosis, change, composts, pomegranates, waxing and waning of the moon

    4. Color scheme: i am going to leave this open. it can range anywhere from dark and gloomy (death) to bright and hopeful (rebirth).

    5. Websites / Samples: http://www.radioliberty.com/Symbolsandtheirmeaning.html (look at butterfly and phoenix)
