In honor of Ruby and Esme's crafty long distance friendship, Kathie and I want this blog to be a place where ALL friends can come together for a little fun. We'd like to build a tribute to the physicality of moving something back and forth between two people- and utilizing the internet as a means to document the beauty of getting back to a more multi sensory, visceral experience of staying connected. We have been bouncing ideas back and forth about crafty handmade ways of celebrating friendship, and we'll be posting updates on our own adventures of rediscovering the world of paper, pens, stamps and envelopes (along with various other media as the mood strikes!). So! We invite YOU to submit a project you and a friend will make and pass back and forth through the mail as you each embellish it.
As the weeks go by we will provide some suggestions of possible projects, but please feel free to contact us with your own ideas as well.
Select submitted projects will be posted on Fridays! Make something for someone you love. The sky is the limit!
To participate -All ages are welcome!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line SUBMISSION
Send a photo -72 dpi jpg -of the beginning efforts and we'll let you know the date it will be posted.
Give us a short description/significance of your project - 150 words or less
Include your web page or blog if you have one
Then simply send the http://www.backandforthproject.blogspot.com link to your friend to get the ball rolling
Be sure to keep us posted so we can follow your progress
All we ask is you create with the spirit of sustainiblility in mind- re-use, reduce, recycle, friends!
