I've never done one of these before and I'm excited for it. So if I got really attached to one word I could use the same word in all 12 inchies? Since each one will go to a different person? Is it okay if there is some dimension to them?

I'm in Canada - And I'm a keen and crazy altered art gal - Can I get in on this? WOuld provide additional $$ to cover needed postage.

Sounds like fun. I miss being able to mail things properly. The postal system in this country is renowned for being very slow and for losing things.

Looking forward to this!

Using the same word is just fine! And yes, dimension is fabulous! Thanks Jill!!!

Unknown said...

That would be fine Mary - perhaps you could allow for the postal delay and get them to me sooner than the 15th? That would be great!

Unknown said...

That's too bad!! 😯

Hey Kim! I was just telling someone how much I missed you and your art. I would love to play! I am fasting from FB for awhile but I still have the messenger app so I will message you later.
