A week's worth of ephemera.

Collect some cool stuff from a week in the life of YOU. What kind of stuff comes across your path? Junk mail? Interesting things in the trash at work (office trash not sloppy trash)? Grocery store labels, stickers, ads? What kind of interesting litter do you find while walking? Do you visit places with cool (free) postcards, brochures, flyers? Do you discover interesting bits from magazines or newspapers? Shopping lists? What else?

Rescue all these wonderful bits of ephemera and send them to your partner. Think of things they might enjoy to use in their art. Images, cool words, nice poems or stories. Maybe not something they might not use in their art but it might inspire them. It's always interesting to see the regional flavor of our ephemera - east coast, west coast, midwest - U.S., U.K., Canada. It's all so different and we love to see it all!

This is intented to be a flat swap to keep postage costs down. Include 10-20 items that will make your partner smile or have a deep thought. Folded items are fine.

Be sure to include enough postage!

This is sender's choice.

I'm saying " A week in the life of you" but I'm giving you more weeks to collect and send off your envelopes.

Be sure to include your SB name and the name of the swap so you can get rated.

Have fun!

My swaps will almost always be flat swaps in order to keep postage costs down. I enjoy having a somewhat steady flow of mailart in and out and in order to do that, I can't spend a ton sending packages out. If you would like to do swaps for more hefty exchanges, please feel free to contact me about becoming an officer and hosting your own swaps.

Also, let me know if you want to see a US only version of any of my swaps. By default, I let them be international ...
