6/5/05Retro Style Cane Swap
Amanda Flinders
This is a retro style raw cane swap. It will be a very small swap, because this is my first swap I would like to keep it small! The idea I have is kinda like a square inside a square and then in a cluster of squares. I call it a retro style cane? You can do this with circles or pretty much any shape. Each swapper will send in 5 canes at 3 inches long and no smaller than a 1inch in diameter. Please e-mail me and I will be happy to give you some picture so you get the idea. 1.Please sign up by July 5th. 2. Please send your canes out no later than August 1st. 3. Please put your canes in little Baggies and you can label them with your information if you like. Also include shipping cost in either stamps or money in the same amount you used to ship your items, and include a return address label.

3/3/05Christmas Ornament Swap 1
Kimba Wilson
Remember how I said I would do a couple of Christmas ornament swaps this year? Well, I think it's about time to start signing people up for the first one. Sign up for groups of 5. No limit on the groups yet, but I may impose a limit if we get too large.
Small ornaments, no larger than 4 inches at it's largest dimension. They can be any kind of ornament - cut outs, sculptures, covered etc. as long as they are mostly clay and are no larger than 4 inches. They do not all need to be identical, but they certainly can be. If you want to cover miniature ornaments and need them, let me know. I have tons of them! :-) I will sell them at cost to swap members.
You will need to package each ornament individually, and label each one with your name. A business card is always a plus! You will need to send a return address label and the return postage with your package. Priority mail is preferred but not required, Insurance both ways is STRONGLY recommended for any breakable ornaments. Send it in a box I can ship your ornaments back to you in.
Please remember to package them well, using plenty of bubble wrap so they don't break. Have fun!

2/24/05Inspired by Jewelry Crafts Magazine
Tonja Lenderman
Okay everyone, let's try a "I was inspired by Jewelry Crafts Magazine" swap. Pick any article and show us how it inspired you to create something wonderful.
We'll do groups of 3, so you need to make 2 items per group. As the 3rd person you don't need to make one for yourself. :) Keeping the groups small will give us the chance to spend more time per piece instead of working on quantity. You can be in as many as 5 groups, but each group MUST use a different article.
I'm thinking due date May 15th. I'll keep sign-up open until April 15th.
You will need to -
1) label and/or bag each item separately to identify you as the maker
2) include return postage (postage stamps if possible)in the same amount it cost to mail to me
3) include a return address label
4) tell us what article you chose and which issue it was in.
Doing these things will make the work much easier for your swap mistress :)

12/15/04Polymer Clay Artist Trading Cards
Helen Pope
I learned about a new 'thing' that is going around the world called 'Artist Trading Cards'. These are 'mini works of art'. We'll use a standard sized playing card as the base (to keep the size consistent). Then decorate the card using face cabs, cane slices, beads, found objects - whatever strikes your fancy but must have some polymer clay in it. Then sign and date the back and also number the card if you make more than one of the same design. There will be groups of 5 or 10 (to be determined by the group) - join as many as you like.
