Penpals, Scrapbookers, Postcard Artists and Other Creative Types
 
Your talents are wanted here!

I've been a penpal for a few years now and have completed some artistic endeavors through group rounds with great success. I find the artistic expression of the people I've had the pleasure of knowing and corresponding with to be exemplary.

This is a thread for those who would like to connect (or reconnect) with other artistic types, whether it be by penpalling, swapping small craft projects or coming together to design new ways to share our love of pen, paper, glue and glitter.

Happy creating, all!

whew

i've been making postcards of late and have grand plans for some x-mess cards.

anybody wants in, drop me a pm with mailing addy. especially you, ms. gemme....haven't heard from you in a while. :)

evolveme 11-12-2009 04:09 PM

I used to do all of these things.

I still have boxes of magazines (like The Sun and Art Forum), special paper and nearly a house FULL of favorite pens (my favorite thing to shop for) just for this purpose. I crafted my hand-written letters with these things along with leaves, flowers, small found objects, etc.

I really should get back to it. It was a pleasure.

(Not a fan of glitter here.)

Some of my friends turned me onto Postsecret.com and I love the concept of putting one's most secret thoughts and desires onto a 3x5 or 4x6 card and revealing them to others, sometimes anonymously.

Glad to see your interest!

No worries. Glitter is not a requirement...just the urge to create and the willingness to keep in touch with others. That's it. :)

i'm tracing my hand and making construction paper
turkeys and gluing them onto paper plates as we speak.
and i have glitter in an autumnal palate for the haters.

gobble gobble.

I've been a miserable correspondent for too long.

I should make this my New Year's Rez.

Side Note: Bent calls glitter the herpes of crafts. ;)

I have an autumnal palate in body glitter. No turkeys, hand or otherwise. We each do what we can! ;)

Herpes has such a bad rap. :D

My birthday is on Thanksgiving this year.

My dad used to call me Turkey. (He thought this was quite clever.)

I should like to celebrate with a crepe paper Turkey.

A giant one.

Or just some of those little hand ones like Ben-Her is making.

I don't want to set myself up to fail or anything.

girl_dee 11-12-2009 04:24 PM

my hobbies have changed through the ages

As of late I am into making photocards out of the pictures I take at the resort here... It's an amazing place... I get to sell them when we are open for the season.. I would like to expand this one day...



The link in my sigline has samples..

I also like to crochet to keep my hands busy and keep me out of trouble.

Wil your postcards are great

no no to glitter

It may take me six (or twenty-four) months, but eventually my guilt and need to create will get the better of me.

Yes, please.

If any form of written correspondence survives it should be the postcard.

Dear me.

So so sorry.

I guess the only thing we can do here is have you post a pic of one of your turkeys. Next to something. For relative comparison.

Say, a bread box?

I checked out your photos, Sassy, really nice work. I particularly liked your post-Katrina photos (clearly taken by someone who knows that city) and your landscapes.

Thanks for sharing.
