Pages In Time Swaps

As a Design Team member at Pages In Time, I moderate a group, Tags and Things.  We're a very active group with lots of swaps.  In the group, we talk about our art, share techniques, and give each other feedback about our projects.

Our vintage bookmark mingle just closed.  We each made two bookmarks to exchange.  Here's the bookmark I made:
Here are the two beautiful bookmarks I received in return:

I also hosted a Fall Fantasy ATC Swap for the Tags and Things group. Members had a choice of making 3 ATCs using one of these themes: Halloween, Fairies, or Twilight (the books/movies).   I chose to make 3 Halloween ATCs:
The members really got into making ATCs.  Several of them made more than one set of 3, some making a set for each of the categories.  There were nine participants.  My dining room table was loaded down with ATCs which I swapped out and returned in the mail.  Here are the 3 Halloween ATCs I kept. (I also put in the card I got from Sandi when she sent her ATCs.)  I really wanted to keep them all and agonized over what to keep and what to send back.  But since I'm hosting some more swaps, I should eventually end up with one piece of art from each Tags and Things group member.

We just closed the sign-up list for the swap of 5 holiday ATCs. The members are busy working on those. But sign-ups are still open until the end of this week for a holiday tag swap. If you like these kinds of art exchanges, please come on over to Pages In Time and join our Tags and Things group.

For further PIT inspiration here is this Thursday's sketch, hot off the presses.  Karen is giving a weekly prize to one of the layouts submitted to the PIT Thursday Sketch Group.
