Sign -Up Complete! See Sue's Comment Below for Next StepsJanuary 26th, 2010 in blog
JMS member, Crazymomluvsjunk started this last spring and the members who participated had a hoot-and-a-half of a good time. I think it's time to bring it back, but this time with a new twist. Any JMS junker willing, able, and ready to join in the fun should keep on a reading. What is a junk swap? It is the act of trading some of your found objects for some equally as desireable junkables chosen for you by your junk swap partner. We're talking junk in the rough here. Anything you can come up with that is found curbside, in your garage, or perhaps even a dumpster will do. After you have chosen the loot, package it up and send it via Wells Fargo Express to your partner. What''s the twist? This time we're making it a challenge. Upon receipt of your junkmail, it is your duty and obligation (trying to sound official here) to look at your junk, close your eyes, forget about what it was, and think only about what it can become. After you have collected your thoughts, it's time to collect your tools and get creative. Once you have finished your projects (with some or all of the junk you received) it would be fantabulous if you would post your finished project on the site making sure to label it as a junk swap contribution Oooo, la,la.....I can't wait to see what we all come up with. It makes me smile just thinking about it. Here's how you do it. If you decide to participate, enter a "count me in" comment under this post letting me know you're game. After that send an email to me at email@example.com with all your vital statistics.....name, JMS member name, email address, and mailing address will cover you. You will have two weeks from today or until February 9th to sign up. After that I will pair you up with a member and supply you with the necessary information to send out your bundle-o-junk to your swap partner. The rest is up to you! Let the games begin!! Don't forget to show us your finished project!
