Steampunk- An imaginary Victorian age, that features brass and copper clockwork and steampowered inventions that go far beyond 1800's technology. Steam powered mechanical wonders, optimistic gear driven computers, dirigibles, clockwork parts, and stuff like that.
So I am doing another swap. This one is a Steampunk charm swap at A Work In Progress. I chose to do this because first it is something I had never heard of, second it is sooo cool, and third it works with tiny little things (and I dig tiny little things). Also, because I generaly work with items that are organic, like seeds, plants, shell, rock etc, this is a new element for me. Well I have had so mush fun. I believe the host of the swap is still looking for 2 more people so if you're interested pop on over and give her a look-see. Here is a sneak peak at what I have done...
Bad Penny over at The Linen Shelf hosted a matchbox swap and I just had to join. I sent my decorated matchboxes filled with red sand, anise seeds, licorice root and feathers to England. Today in the mail was a package full of matchboxes. I was so happy to see all the different mediums people used to create their little boxes. It was a great swap!
I am playing around with the idea of hosting a handmade bookmark swap... what do you think?
