My Mixed Media Art (spoiler)
I will take a break from swapping.
I always glue the stamp on the card, go to the postoffice to put the datestamp on it and THEN I insert the card into the protection sleeve. So I have both: protection and a naked sent card.
If you glue the stamp outside on the protection sleeve stamp and datestamp will go lost after removing the sleeve. So it`s the same like sending in an envelope and not sent naked anymore.
Our postoffice closes friday at 12.30 pm and opens again on monday. There is no mail pick up during this time or on bankholidays. So my envelopes may carry a later datestamp than my sent date says, because I click sent after I put them into the mailbox, if I don`t need to meet the postmistress.
I`m in my fifties, a quilter for 20 years.
A while ago I felt in love with paper crafting, mixed media and especially with mailart. I love to do collages, to play with colours and materials.
I spent a lot of time being creative and I always put time and effort in my swaps.
Making my art is very important for me.
I always read the profile from my swap-partner, hopefully to find something I can use for the swap, especially when the swap says sender`s choice.
Therefore I appreciate that my swappartner will do the same for me.
Honestly I have to say …. I always will give hearts for the swap, not for the extras, which are not necessary.
