Altered 250 ct Matchbox T.Allen-Mercado 10/08
I probably should stop, but I just can't. A few months ago I discovered Swap-Bot. It's been the cure for 1. my need to create 2. my need to rid myself of random creations and make room to create. Many of the ATCs and other random works you've seen in my posts were for swap partners. I'm really having a blast!
About two weeks ago I stumbled upon an altered matchbook swap. I didn't join, but the wheels did start a' turning. I promised I'd find an excuse to alter a matchbox and I have. I needed to create something green for a reggae and Rastafari loving young woman in Latvia. I came up with the guy shown above. I call him Roots and Sulfur. I think I'm hooked, if only I could find some place to put all of the matches!
In other swapping hobbies goodness news, I am trying my hand at hosting my very own swap. It is titled Dancing Machine and I'm hoping to get some movement inciting tunes from all over the world into my hands, and the hands of others. The success (or not) of this swap is the pre-cursor to personal challenge no. 35 Organize and execute an (International) Peace art Swap. The Dancing Machine CD swap is open to the public, if you'd like to take a stab at it. Don't say I didn't warn you if you find yourself hooked!
