Here are our ATC swap themes for August 2013:
1. Favorite word
3. Third swap: Since we'll be making cards for swapping with the Georgia Peaches, there isn't a third swap this time.
Please RSVP now so we have an approximate headcount (you can always change your RSVP later).
Meetup Plans: Georgia Peaches Exchange and Found Poetry
Georgia Peaches: We have a LOT of cards from the Georgia Peaches! To make more trades, we will spend the time we have together at this meetup making individual cards to swap with our sister group. A variety of supplies will be out so that attendees may bring just a few things and be inspired to create within the "limits" of what is available between your own "stash" you bring and what we have. Let's get creative in August and get swapping!
Found Poetry: By popular demand, we will also have "found poetry" packs to inspire creativity. Envelopes with ephemera and random pages from a variety of books will be available. In case you're not familiar with found poetry, the basics are as follows: use the random pages you find in your envelope and cut up the sentences, phrases and words to create lines of poetry. These are often humorous, especially when placed together juxtaposed with images that seem unrelated to the topic. They can also be profound! There will be a few samples on hand to help you get into the groove.
