    Chunkies: 6 Word Memoirs: Due May 18

    All cards mailed today, 06/01/09!


    SWAP DUE DATE: May 18
    SIGNUP/WITHDRAW DATE: April 27
    NUMBER OF PAGES: 3 for 3 (It's my 2nd swap!)
    NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 20 (I'll pay postage for up to 5 international/outside the US)

    What are six word memoirs? Well - jeez, ummm, do your life story in 6 words! Or as I did, a part of my life story. There's a coupla books put out by Smith magazine (Not Quite What I Was Planning, for one) and you can check out a link here:

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=18768430

    CREATE: For this swap you'll create three 4x4 inch chunky pages.

    These are mixed media pieces so use your favorite combination of paper, paint, ink, pencil, crayon, wax, etc. And remember that chunky pages should be thick, embellished and some dangly goodness off the edge would be terrific.

    WHAT IS A CHUNKY PAGE? For this swap your 4x4 base should be sturdy -- doubled up cardstock, very heavy watercolor paper, etc. If you've never made a page there's a great how-to here

    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1294

    US RETURNS: When you're done, put each of your 4x4 pages in an individual ziplock or sandwich size plastic bag. Send these to me, along with a large mailing label showing your address, and loose postage equal to the cost for mailing your pages to me.


    INTERNATIONAL RETURNS: Package your pages as outlined for US Mail. Send them to me with a large mailing label showing your address. I will supply the return postage for up to 5 international players.

    PM me for my address when you are ready to mail.


    I've already been working on mine - so here's some examples:


    This one I finished - Good sex is worth the drama

    Here's another - not chunked yet:
    Scary childhood, nervous adulthood, finally free. And yes, that is a little baby cheeka on her first day of school.

    And finally, one I have only just started:

    My mind is full of art.

    See how easy they are? Pretty soon you might become obsessed with counting the words in the phrases you say - which is how i came up with Good sex - lol. Long story.

    After looking at the site you recommended, I started writing down 6-word memories and wow! Easy! Guess I'll join and see what chunkies I can make using the memories I jotted down just now.
    There is a season for everything!

    grin - I thnk the 2nd swap I signed up for in my life was a chunky swap so of course you are welcome. Just think of it as a big ol ATC with ummmm stuff on the sides or bottom. In fact for me the chunking is the hardest part - especially since I have nails and it seems like I'm always getting glue and fibers all over them. Or trying to peel the sticky off those stupid dymo words - grrrr.

    Welcome, malicea, welcome!
