Mim and I did this once on my blog-and it was a blast.
It's simple-go to your personal stash and pull out a few items you'd like to send to someone else. It doesn't have to be a kit or even make sense. "Found objects" are great-maybe you saved something but never found a place for it in your art. Maybe you have a stash of favorite pens. Some cloth. Whatever. We ALL have our artist's cache...it's ok if it's unopened, but please don't go buy stuff-the point is to use what you already have.
My suggestion is you fill up one of those postal service boxes that ship for one price. For those of you not in the US, they are about the size of a cigar box. But, any size box will do.
To participate-post a comment here and send me your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't post your mailing address here-it wouldn't be safe.
I will match up people and send your address to somebody on the list. If you have a post office box for such things, that is fine. I won't give your address to more than one person and I will delete the list when the project is done.
Deadlines (ick) Yes, we have to have them to be fair to everyone. Deadline for getting your address to me is Sunday Oct. 25th. You can get your box ready at that time too.
I will send out addresses via the e-mail from Blogland.lane sbc etc. on Oct. 26th. (You will get one address only, not a group e-mail). Please ship your box no later than October 31.
I've been involved in these group projects before, and it's no fun to be the one who waits and waits and waits.
On Saturday, December 5th-I will post a thread and we will reveal what we have created with our new stash of goodies. You don't have to use the entire stash, and you are free to add your own stuff-but please use something FROM the stash.
My hope is this is a way to share bits of ourselves and then see how others take that bit and move forward with it.
