I'm swimming in shipping tags! Really! I can't pass up buying in bulk when I only need 10 of something. I bought 2.5" x 4.75" (close enough) manila tags at ULINE almost 2 years ago and feel like I've already used 1000 of them, and still have a huge box left. So my friend Carol Berger said "ya gotta have a swap"! She just finished a swap and I missed her sign-up, darn it. So we're solving that right now! Here's the results of Carol's swap featured at her blogQueenBeAlteredNeeds Enjoy her spooky ready-for-Halloween blog too!
I have already saved a spot for Carol who has graciously guided me through how to do my first swap. And there were 2 other disappointed artisans besides me that missed her announcement so we've filled 4 spots and need 4 additional comitted and easily-excited artists to complete the fun.
Your medium is your choice: mixed media, photography, collage, orginal, prints, primitive, each different, each alike, loose rules for that criteria as long as it is an artistic expression and long as it shares the spirit of the holiday.
To the first 4 who leave comments here that they comitt to participate, we are thrilled to have you join! please go to my side bar and email me a physical mailing address where I can mail your 8 blank tags. I will need all 8 completed tags mailed back to me no later than October 15th and I'm holding your feet to the fire on that deadline. That should give everyone 3 weeks to finish their tags and mail back to me.
Then I'll divide and mail out 8 completed and different tags to each participant. The only expense you will have is to mail your finished tags back to me. Instead of asking you to contribute financially to other mailing expenses and the tags, I would really appreciate a selfless plug about my etsy shop on your blog or your flickr, or among FB friends, twitter whatever opportunity you have to spread the news about a listing (your choice) in my shop after the swap is complete and you are satisfied. I can't buy better advertising, so it seems like a great compromise if you're willing to accomodate my request.
