      > A paper swap is where you are given the names and mailing address of a list of people (say 10) and you send one marbled piece to each of them (so you will send out nine papers). In return, each person on the list sends you one paper so you will end up with nine pieces of marbled paper from around the globe or across the U.S.

      > Why the swap? Well, why not? I find it rewarding to see other marblers' work. In fact, I have several artists' pieces that I purchased over the years hanging on my studio wall. And while I enjoy seeing people's work on their blogs or websites, there is a huge difference between holding a marbled piece and seeing a photograph of it. When I got my hands on past issues of Ink & Gall and discovered that each one had a tip in or swatch of marbled paper, I was giddy with delight. In other words, the swap will be fun!

      > • Please send your paper flat. Do not fold it.

      > • In your envelope, please include a separate piece of paper with your name, location, website or email address, how long you've been marbling, what you marble on (what your bath is) and with (what type of paint), and any other interesting information you'd like to share.

      > • Don't forget to sign your piece! It's art, after all!

      > • Deadline to submit your name for the list is Monday, January 16.

      > • Deadline to mail your papers out is Tuesday, January 31.
      >
      > Those interested in participating, please send me an email at Cheers@... by January 16 with your name and complete mailing address (as it should appear on the envelope). I will then set up the lists and get back to participants by January 18.
