New community concept

As those of us who find joy in beautiful things, sometimes we find ourselves not in a position to get something we desire easily...

Sometimes other people have ways to get that thing more easily than we would... This could be due to where they work, or perhaps because they live where the item is more 'plentiful'...

This is why I created this place:

this_is_your_in

The premise is that people can put feelers out to see if someone else on LJ has a way to help them get something they really want...

Mystic Lady machine

I first saw something similar in a movie theather lobby and had to have one...

Then some guy on eBay was selling 8 of the ones in the pictures below. I wanted one, not an entire tribe of them :-D (Well, once you have 2, it just kinda goes on from there :-D)

Anyway, nobody bid, so he broke up the lot.

The one in the movie theather was just the game on the left. Mine has both. She's a very heavy girl...

Incidentally, I did discover that despite the appearance (two different coin slots), you can't play both games at the same time...

My BA Embroidery Final Project!!

I am asking for your help with my final project on my degree. It’s all about forming visual representations of collections and taking this through to design ideas after lots of drawing and investigating objects. I am trying to form an exciting and diverse collection by asking people from all over the world to send me objects in the post!

 

The object(s) need to be:

 

·        small, no bigger than 10cm square.

·        old or used or with an exciting history

·        inexpensive – I unfortunately can’t send you money in return!

 

 

Please send your objects to:       Danielle Goodhand

                                                School of Art and Design

                                                Manchester Metropolitan University

                                                Cavendish Building

                                                Cavendish Street

                                                Manchester

                                                M15 6BG

 

Please remember to include your name, address and telephone number so I can send you something in return for helping me with forming my collection.

 

The project will be exhibited in the Embroidery degree show around June 2007, I will post the exact date as soon as I know!

 

The deadline is the end of May 2007 but the sooner the better really!!

 

Thanks so much for your help!!!!!!
