Art Swap, Barter and Trade


Today I have officially lunched my new blog:
You will find three of my hand carved linoleum cut prints.
I have traded different kinds of art with artist before.
Some of the trades I have been involved in included ATC, art dolls,
quilted pages, tip-ins and postcards.
It is fun and inspiring to get art from other artist.
I am really excited about starting this blog this year!!
Happy New Year!

Ooh, how does this work, I have things I'd like to swap with you, also prints, but using polystyrene plates rather than lino or woodcuts.

Years ago I had a booth in several different art shows. I'm very shy and so it wasn't really quite my cup of tea. But I did love it that all the artists traded with each other. Your idea could turn the blogging world into a huge arts and crafts show, with bloggers trading arts and crafts with each other. Good luck to you on this!! xo Kari

Thanks to Lynn and her ATC blog I decided to follow her idea.

I always wanted to go the the Country Fair in Eugene. I had a friend that went their and traded an object for a talisman. It was really nice and esoteric.

So secretly I always wanted to go and trade art at a barter fair with some other like minded ones. I am sure that their are others like me that would like to connect in this sea of information in a more tangible way through art...a 'person'-al way.

I don't plan to do a lot of trading. But a few a month would be fun.
