    The Hung-Up on HALLOWEEN Swap - Due Oct 1

    Due date: October 1st
    Sign up/withdraw: no deadline, just communicate
    Number of art pieces: 3/3
    Number of players: 25

    Join us as we make ready-to-hang 3D Halloween-themed artwork!

    Simple Rules to Swap Success:

    1. Open and mixed media artwork: Assemblage, fabric, clay, beads, etc. Use whatever materials you wish to create 3-dimensional art pieces (sculpture, dolls, ornaments, flags, pennants are some examples.) Keep art around the size of your hand, and make sure it has the ability to be hung up on a nail or doorknob. Ensure that all embellishments and hanger are firmly attached.

    2. HALLOWEEN THEME: Every piece should be Halloween themed. While my examples include a lot of skeletons (who doesn’t love a fun skellie?), all kinds of options are welcome for the holiday, including traditional characters (Vampires, Witches, Frankenstein and his Bride, etc.,) trick-or-treaters, DOTD (Day of the Dead), or even oddities like the caged bird example below. Keep it light and festive, please (no blood or gore.)

    4. This is ART, so please remember to sign your work. Include your username on each piece. No rush jobs! Please make and send art that you were proud to create.

    5. Wrap each piece individually and pack your pieces securely in a BUBBLE ENVELOPE or small box if necessary, which I will re-use. Include a large return address label.

    6. Postage: Please include the same amount of postage in $US dollars that it takes to mail the art to me. For US participants, this could be $5 or more, depending on the size of your finished art. International participants: PayPal with postage value equivalent to what it cost to send the art to me. Please message for my email. If postage makes it cost-prohibitive for you to join, send a private message to me, and we'll work something out.

    8. Show and tell: Please upload piccys of your work. That’s one of the best parts! Hostess gifts or extra postage are always appreciated.

    10. Rep and iTrader: A lot of work goes into this art, so please take the time to leave Rep Points (You Rock button) for the people you receive art from, and an iTrader for me. PM for my address (in Costa Mesa.)

    Examples below by nanner, themuppet, rapa, and nanner yet again.

    And now, a special message from the pumpkin that has been living and waving from my doorstep, since the Hubs brought him home Halloween 2018. He hoped to be our mascot through the end of the swap. But, he has finally (after a miraculous 10 month go) started to show signs of rot. He leaves for the Organic-land in the Sky next week. October to August...in Southern California...that has to be a record of some kind.

    Truly, the best pumpkin from any patch. Ever.

    Did not know that! How fabulous. We will all be celebrating you come October! A great friend of mine just turned 90 on July 4th. We always joke that the nation shoots off fireworks in his honor.
