  1. So, this is all kind of new to this space, and for me, there will be some trial and error. I've been thinking, and I would like to read what you all think about this-- Two swap choices a month--one more silly (like the three things into a picture or something) and one more "serious" (although that can be up for debate). They'll both be due by the last day of the month so there is less potential confusion. We still want to see your work, even if you don't want to mail it away--or if it isn't small, or whatever. You don't have to draw--you can collage, whatever you want to do! I plan on starting and finishing at least one of mine today, so be on the lookout for that. I look forward to seeing your work!
  2. I have a blog, but I wouldn't necessarily call myself a blogger because I struggle to find things to write about daily. I'm trying to work on building some things up. I am blogging more than I did, but that is a low-ish bar. Also, what is the best way in your opinion to find blogs that you would want to read and/or comment on regularly? I've tried feed on Wordpress, but maybe I'm not doing it right or something. Who knows.
  3. I know very little about this--but the information so far is great. I struggle to work with yarns that don't "feel" right. I prefer to work with cottons for that reason, but I didn't know about the rest. I'll try to keep that in mind when I'm looking for yarn. Usually, I just try to go with the brand that the pattern says.
  4. Welcome @Dyantha! Glad to have you in the club and in the group! I look forward to seeing your work. Don't be afraid to ask if you have any questions or anything!
  5. @Kim Werker OMG! The Night Circus was amazing. Magical! I feel like I was transported! Also, Jim Dale (reader of the Harry Potter audiobooks) did such an amazing job! I will say that having it read really adds to the storytelling tradition from Widget!

  10. ATCs are, according to Strathmore "What are artist trading cards? Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5"," All mediums are open as long as they fit on the card! Please use a sturdier material to make your card. You can use cardstock and cut them to size, actual ATC cards, or construction paper, as examples--cardboard would be considered too thick, but you can use that to protect your card if you like! Now, for the most part, we're going to do this Mighty Ugly style, which means the rule is no more than 60 minutes working on the card. (I know we had said 15, but this provides a little bit of leeway for those who may need it.) What is usually done, is people send their work to the host, and the host randomly sends different cards back to the participants of the swap. As of 4/16/2020, we are working on the best way(s) to actually swap cards via mail. That said, we want to use this space to "sign up" and discuss different swap themes/ideas. For ideas or more info, Google "Artist Trading Cards". Please remember that we are doing this to have fun, and in the spirit of Mighty Ugly, all we ask is that you give your best effort and have a good time.
  11. I misspoke. I have all of the Toby Daye series. I was talking about the series by Shannon Mayer! I do LOVE Toby Daye so I hope this is something I might be able to enjoy!
  12. Was it the reading material or reading in general that you had the issues with? I am a firm believer that life is too short for bad books!
  13. Hi everyone! I finished The Giver of Stars this week and it was fantastic! I highly recommend it. How is everyone doing?
  14. Sandi--I am giving it a shot. Mayer has a couple of different ways to read the series'. Check out her website and let me know which you recommend. Also, I love the Kate Daniels and Harry Dresden serieses. I like the Sookie Stackhouse series and the current one she is writing about Gunny. Did you get into Patricia Griggs at all? I keep trying to get into Moon Called. Also--I enjoyed Mercedes Lackey's 500 Kingdoms retellings of fairy tales but I kinda struggle with her other stuff.
