    I want to thank all of you who participated. I am getting high praise for this idea, but really all did the real work, taking something I had no idea what to do with and making masterpieces.

    It was a great deal of work with all the envelopes and groups and varying artist styles, but it was so fun.

    I have asked to host the Mid Jan PAT. The theme will be trash to treasure limited to 5 groups.

    I am not a fan of pats (they make me so nervous) but welcome another trash to treasure challenge.
    what a great idea
    hoping to remember to sign up whenever it gets posted

    Are you doing each group with different trash or the same trash?
    You are so creative.

    I was thinking, The requiement would be that the players would have to use, chip board from like a cereal box, or a playing card or upcycled note card as the background, So no water colors paper.

    that the hand drawn would have to be on a security envelope.
    That there would be on zentangle group, again on a security envelope.
    One group would be APCs
    one group would be open media

    and one other group undecided. I am only allowed 5 groups.


    Other thoughts were cancelled postage stamps. but not sure if those need a separate group. or if that might just theme you could requets. I have til Mid Jan to finalize the ideas.

    That sounds plausible.
    You could even send trash to every group - like not a ton, maybe 3 items to be used somehow along with whatever their group is, even if it is hd/hp, zentangle or whatever.
    What am I saying?! This is not my swap but the idea is interesting. 2cents.jpg

    If anyone is still reading this, I want to confess I almost bought something in a bag at the goodwill that would be awesome to do this again. Not as tacky but interestingly odd. I didn't buy it. I thought WHY???? why? my daughter has to go Physical therapy near this store twice a week. If it presents itself again, who knows.

    That “wheat straw” penny might be worth something according to a coin collector I know.

    anyway-i just took the first "two cents" picture i saw on line to illustrate that putting in my opinion was putting in my two cents.
    but yes, i save wheat pennies.
    gotta have something to leave my heirs.
    i hope they have their own money - i only have about a dozen pennies
