    Jar of Mixed Media Hearts-Due Feb 15, 2013

    Due:Feb 15th, 2013
    Withdraw date: Just let me know ASAP
    Medium: Any/mixed--including drawn/painted/collaged on cardstock, crochet, knit, sewing/plush, polymer clay, paper clay, beaded, wood, resin, thick glass, felted, metal, assemblage,chunky
    Number of hearts: 5 for 5 or 10 for 10
    Size: Hearts should be able to fit in the palm of a hand...is that easy enough? Smallest I would go is about 2" biggest I would go is about 4.5", I'm talking width and height here. You have to get them all safely in a bubble envie so make sure you're keeping that in mind when making.

    Wasn't the Jar of Hearts swap (last year) a blast? Well I talked with Icekat about the last heart swap she hosted and she told me to go ahead with my own Jar O' Hearts swap!! TY Icekat!!!!

    Hearts: Please note that you can make your hearts out of just about anything, but try not to make them too big and heavy, or too fragile. Wrap them appropriately, and try to make sure your hearts will fit into a small padded or flat envelope. I'll try to reuse your envie, so send one in good shape. Please send only your best efforts so that you will receive back items you'd be happy with. Use common sense when packing.

    Ideas-Ideas-Ideas: Themes for the hearts would be cool: steampunk,pop art, whimsical, dark/broken, healing hearts, odd colored hearts,found poetry hearts!! DaRk and Twisted hearts.....long skinny hearts???? Anatomical hearts?????? You're only limited by your own imagination!!!!

    I trade quality for quality, put your best work out and that's what you'll get in return! My personal favorite glue is E6000, it has not let me down YET! It sticks, stays stuck and really rocks with m/m work when it comes to gluing wire, metal, anything??

    Postage: Please pop at least $2-3 dollars into your envelope with your submissions so that I can cover the return postage to get returns back to you. If you send heavy items please make sure you send along enough to cover the postage.
    Canada-International Players $4-5: I'm really bad with determining shipping rates and I think postal prices have surged in some areas. Please play and send money if you can, if you cannot we can work something out. I'd rather have you play than NOT play!!

    Remember to send a large return address label in your envelope!

    The Photos below are of my jar filled with hearts from the last swap and the red winged heart is one that I made last year for the swap. I might be making some more, so join and find out!

    Post- some of your own pics of your submissions so we can cyber drool over all the work in the swap!!!!

    I'm so motivated for this that I may even have mine done in time to hand deliver them to you at ARTzona. Well actually you will probably have enough to carry so I'll mail them if you prefer.

    Oh I'm so excited for this swap!
