    Pen Blank Swap: LAP I Completed!

    I just participated in a Pen blank/kit swap over on Lumberjocks, got a few fun new blanks and a couple of kits.

    Anyone interested in a blank swap? I'll start it, post here if you'd like in on this, it will be a 'large' flat rate box, so figure $10-$12 plus your blanks to contribute. We'll need photos of what you put in and take out (if possible, but if you don't have a digi camera, that's fine too, just take some out, put some in and send it on)

    Just a suggestion but it might be a good idea to give a little bit better description of how this kind of thing works, for those of us who don't know... and maybe how long it takes, or how long a person is allowed to keep the box before passing it on (which is, I am guessing) what you do.

    Kalea,
    we need a list of participants. I'll start with a selection of blanks and send it on to the 2nd person, who has his/her pick of the blanks in there, they take some out, and put some in and ship it on to the next person after say... 2 or three days, each one adding a little, taking some out and then shipping it on. Eventually the box contents look something like this:


    that was the Lumberjocks pen swap when it was at my place. That 'box' has been around the country twice at that point, and they just wrapped up round three.

    here's what I pulled out of that pile:


    and what I put in:



    they had 18 participants this last round. It can take awhile, but that's ok, you just have something to look forward to. Each blank should be labeled with species, the norm are 5 to 6" long by 3/4 to 1" square blanks.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Well Jim, as of right now we don't make pens here but you can tell LOYL that I'd be more than happy to do a bead swap with her
