what would you make with my stuff? challenge and swap

Okay, I keep thinking about doing this, and just
haven't set it in motion--until now!

The challenge part is, I send you an envie with
a few things out of my art room, and you commit
to make something utilizing these things--an atc,
skinny, whatever. You can use other stuff from
your own stash in your creation, too, but please
incorporate most of what is sent--it's part of the

The swap part is, you e-mail me a pic of your
creation by September 10th, so I can blog post
all the arty goodness, along with your own blog
link. You don't have to blog post your creation
yourself, I just thought it would be nice if we
could come visit you, right?

This first round will be limited to USA only,
and to the first ten people to e-mail me at
trishatoo at hotmail dot com. I will need
snail mail addresses, obviously, but if you'd
like to wait until I confirm that you're "in,"
that's fine--I plan on mailing these out
this Monday, however, so . . . no address by
Sunday evening, and I'll move on to the next happy
swapper, okay? A swap in motion tends to stay
in motion!

Sound like fun? I'm going to try to send pretty
much the same stuff to each person, to see how
differently or similarly each artist plays.

Let me know, I look forward to hearing from you--
this should be fun!

So, you get stuff, make something, send me a pic
by September 10th, and I blog post the creations.
How easy is that? You don't even have to go to
the post office!

****Thank you to everyone who e-mailed, this
round is filled--if all goes well this first
time, will try it again in November!****
