THANK YOU Terrie!
La Wendula often hosts 'Paper' swaps. This requires you to register with her for each swap, she selects a partner for you, and you exchange various themed papers useful for collages and other art works. This month's swap is called 'Yummy Papers" ....food wraps, recipes, menus etc. I'm collecting all sorts of stuff.

Karen Isaacson is also a serial mail art swapper. She hosts swaps every month from her blog "Mail Me Some Art' Bookmarks, ATCs, Postcards...you name it she'll organise a trade.

I've taken to ATCs with a vengeance, and belong to several online groups that not only trade but also have challenges, two of which I've won recently. YAY!...this meant a letterbox FULL of goodies...art-related of course.
ATCs For All sent me some fab stuff as a prize...Sakura micron pens, ATC blanks etc.
My fondness for ATCs led to an an amazingly coincidental trade last week. I had my neighbours over for drinks and brought out my ATC album to show them. It turns out that Kamali, from across the road, has just begun to trade also. We traded a couple of cards, and I was knocked out by her 'Oriental' ATC.
All that said, this is my 200th post. Who'd have thought. Sooooo... it's GIVEAWAY time. This time I'll get R to choose from a hat or something. Last time he chose on merit he was far too anxious about it.
I will have two prizes, and you can nominate which you'd prefer, as some people don't use ephemera in their work. First out of the hat will win....

Just comment for a chance. We'll draw the winnner in a week.
