Tonja Lenderman
Groups of 5 swappers making 5 identical bookmarks per group you join. Limit 3 groups per person. Bookmarks can be a traditional long rectangle, beads attached to a shepherds hook or just something fun and funky, but it has to be able to be used as a bookmark. That's the important part. Once sign up is closed I will email everyone with the shipping details. Don't forget to bag & label each bookmark with your name and email address. I'm sure you will want to get all those thank you notes :) You will be required to send return shipping fees. I prefer postage stamps (because it's easiest for me) but cash, money orders or PayPal funds will be okay too.

You can swap any item that creates a neat texture on clay. The more unconventional, the better. The idea is to open our eyes to the textures that surround us every day! You can send in the item itself (e.g. you find a nifty spoon handle...you can send the spoon)....or you can make a texture sheet from the spoon and send that (if you don't want to part with your spoon!). There are lots of options. Be creative!
