NEW POLL - Sharing & Caring Exchanges for 2015
« on: September 28, 2014, 11:58:41 AM »
Hello Flourishing Friends!

I thought it would be fair to do a poll to see our most popular choices for exchanges for next year. There are several that I feel are "givens" and will be automatically on the list (see below). But there is room for more! Once the survey is complete, I will post a calendar with all of the scheduled exchanges for 2015 and will then post sign up announcements when the time arrives. There will be a total of 8 on the list (which is about every 6 weeks). This should allow room for other exchanges should anyone desire to create one.

Already selected for 2015:
1. Valentine's Day
2. Holiday
3. Halloween/Day of the Dead


Advanced Exchanges Scheduled for 2015 (these will be scheduled in between/in addition to the other exchanges with a longer deadline):

1. Offhand Flourishing
2. Mimic a Master - Reproduce a piece/word from an old master of your choice such as Madarasz, Courtney, Bloser, Lupfer, etc.

I chose handletter, zentangle and 5 things!



Ohhhhhhhh I can't do offhand flourishing yet! Darn. Can people send to me and I'll send back 'OMG THAT IS FANTASTIC, GOOD JOB YOU' cards instead?


Mimicking masters sound fun... but I probably can't reproduce so many fakes to send to people. Oh! I need more practice!

The decorative letter sounds AMAZING - me and my varying types of shiny gold will get all up in your illuminations!

Felicia, that is funny! But I've seen your work. You are good! I bet you would surprise yourself if you gave it a try. It's very liberating. :)

Erica!
I'm so excited about the two Advanced Exchanges coming up!  And I'm glad they have a longer deadline. 
Thank you so much for all you do!

As I was having a blast with the broadpen exchange I'd like one for next year as well. =)

Hi Erica,

Regards the Hand Letter option (which I voted for , among others), why not let the writer choose his/her own letter? That would give a wider variety of responses. Everyone could do their favorite letter.

Love the Mimic a Master one. Good practice and requires a little bravery to put your work next to something superb.

Here's another Idea:

Perhaps for the advanced exchanges, or not--how about an ornamental signature exchange--each person writes the name of everyone on the list in whatever script or style they like-pointed pen, broad pen. paint brush, any tool or medium. Easier than a whole card. The envelope would enclose the nameplate.

... how about an ornamental signature exchange ...

That is a good idea.  About as advanced as it gets, mind you.
