PC Name Tag One-to-One Swap is up!!
Every cowgirl needs a faithful horse. Last year we had six swappers because the swap went up late in the game, but as you can see by the photos, the paper horses were awesome!
Join this swap to collect a colorful herd of pretty ponies using this free template (here) created by Artist Ann Wood.
You can utilize the pattern in any way you wish, using any materials you like. Choose from two "breeds" of horses. If you want to enlarge or alter the pattern, go ahead. If you want to make your own pattern, that's fine, too! We'll make one horse for every swapper, so we get 15 swappers, we'll make 15 pretty ponies. This swap will close at 20 horses.
So saddle up and have fun! You can leave a comment here if you have any questions!
Yours, Cathi B. (Calsidyrose)

Hi Gals! I thought I'd start off the swaps with what I had an idea for. I wanted to have us each make an "inspiration board" for each other where you can tack up pictures from the PC weekend or your favorite swaps that you received, etc. It can be blinged up as much as you'd like, use rhinestones, cowgirl gear of some sort, flowers, pockets, laces, trims and whatever tickles your cowgirl fancy!
This will be a one-on-one swap and we'll trade likes/dislikes after the partners are assigned. Here is an example of a board I made recently...
I imagine a Cowgirl board just an "itsy-bitsy" more blinged though, he,he!
If you'd like to sign up, please email me at purrpage3 at verizon dot net with a contact email
and I will email you back confirming.
The inspiration board is made on a 14 by 16 canvas board covered with batting and fabrics, etc.
The deadline at this point is open-ended for signups.
I'll contact you near when it will close and when partners will be assigned!

This will be a one-to-one swap. We'll be swapping altered boxes. By popular demand, although I first mentioned that it could be any size, I'm going to limit it somewhat so we're all on the same page. Boxes need to be about the size of a cigar box or small lunch box. When I close the swap, I'll assign partners, and you can talk to your partner about what colors they like/have in their house for decorating the outside, but the inside will be completely up to you. You can make it a shadow box, or fill it with fun stuff for your partner like found objects or supplies for art, or finished art you made, or pretty much anything you want.
I found a lot of examples on the internet just by googling altered cigar boxes or mixed media boxes, but if people want more examples, I'll be happy to come back and post more links. Really, though, anything goes.If you're interested in participating, leave a comment on the main page and on the database. I'm going to close the swap on Monday, May 2, to give everyone time to work on their boxes.
