Yeah, it is definitely a southern thing...basically an expression of amazement, and now no one really knows where or how it originated. But it is fun to say! Especially when you pronounce it with a slow drawl: "horn-swaaahgled", like my Arkansas/Alabama relatives.
I can only imagine the Bostonian version!

Re: Official CP Art Exchange Thread - (SIGN UP HERE!)

Finally put pencil to paper earlier tonight and it seems to be coming together well. Things should go pretty quickly now as getting started is usually half the battle in my case.

Are we just revealing the finished artwork at the end or is anyone taking progress shots??

Hi Amy,
At the end (when we open the reveal thread) if you want to post WIP shots along with your finished work, that is fine. Most people post only the finished work in these exchanges, but it is up to the artist.

Personally I haven't been taking WIP shots of my exchange project...I'm doing well just to get the work done!

Glad to hear you are off to a good start! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Alrighty, thank you Candle. I'll probably forgo the WIP shots for this then. I'm usually pretty bad at remembering to take them anyway.

Re: Official CP Art Exchange Thread - (SIGN UP HERE!)

I'm so pleased to say that I have just finished my piece to send to Overlord_Kirby, I've just gotta let it sit for a few day's then check what might need tweaking with fresh eye's.

As for any tips, allocate yourself sometime each day or two and stick to it (I think George may have said the same thing).
When deciding to sign up for this I made sure I was ready for it before the start date, so I had plenty of time if I needed to restart. I had pretty much chosen my subject, before the start date and made sure I only worked on this. I'm a stay at home mum of three young boy's, so I have no work commitments but can get very hectic here. My secret weapon - my hubby , when he was available he would occupy the boy's to give me extra time for this, at least a couple of hours a day, ain't he sweet .

Can't wait for the reveal thread to see everyone's wonderful efforts.

Thanks for the tips, smudged-blue! You really got that done quickly!

Faula, I bet you'll get done quickly too now that your leopard is out of the way.

Yaaaay thanks Kate This is actually harder to do than I first thought. I am now on my third attempt at producing something worthy to send to Basketmaker. Fortunately this one seems to be working so far.

Re: Official CP Art Exchange Thread - (SIGN UP HERE!)

Wow, some are pretty fast
Perhaps this is already discussed and I have missed it.
May I ask if there are any advices for packaging and sending the pieces?

Re: Official CP Art Exchange Thread - (SIGN UP HERE!)

Hi All
Am making good progress with Bib's drawing. The subject is not a surprise to her - we had a discussion beforehand - but I'll keep the rest of you in the dark until "Reveal"!
I am finding working on it very peaceful and relaxing - I think it's the subject!I am really looking forward to seeing all the fabulous work when we've finished.
Trish
