    It starts with a pencil

    I have a little project that I've been working on. I'm calling it "It starts with a pencil". Scroll to the bottom of this post to see cards that have been created by members of this site.

    I've started a batch of Jam cards. They all start the same way - with an image of a hand carved pencil stamped in black on plain white card stock. Each card will have two additional contributors. When the cards come back to me, I will post the images at it-starts-with-a-pencil.blogspot.com and I will send each participant a mini zine with images of six different (randomly chosen) cards from the project.

    All media and styles are welcome.

    Please post here when you send and/or receive cards.

    I have 10 cards set aside. Who would like to Jam with me?

    Card 1 rec'd
    1. cdraz/ceedee
    2. adriayna

    Card 2 - rec'd
    1. Robin
    2. The Mad Catter

    Card 3 - rec'd
    1. Penlowe
    2. xraypinky

    Card 4 - rec'd
    1. poeticpaper
    2. trini70

    Card 5

    Cards are on their way to Robin and ceedee. Hmmmm, perhaps if no one else signs up, you two might like to trade and be #3 on each other's cards. I'll leave it up to you, and who knows, we may get more sign ups yet.

    hey adriayna and penlowe;
    Welcome aboard. Sorry for the delayed response. I was in the hospital for a few days. Had some chest pain/vomiting on Sunday night, went to emerg. on Monday morning, and I've only just now emerged. Turns out I need to get my gall bladder removed. Was bumped off the surgery list each day, and decided that since I feel fine, I'd rather be home than lying in a hospital bed.

    Is that more detail than you wanted?

    adriayna, I'll add you last on card #1, and Penlowe, I'll send you a fresh one

    Well, this works out well. Robin, can you please send the card to the Mad Catter (love the name!). You can contact her directly for her address if you like.

    Now we just need to find someone to finish off Penlowe's card, and to work on all the other cards I have here.

    Thanks ceedee for the update.

    Most excellent, Penlowe, and xraypinky, y'all can work out addresses between yourselves. Just let me know if you need my help for anything though. Of course if anyone else would like to play, there's still plenty of room.
