Next heART Swap: NOVEMBER 2015

Your heART really does make a difference and receiving a gorgeous postcard through the mail makes even more of a difference to each and every person in our creative community who join the swap.

heART exchange is a global art swap to create, share & receive LOVE in the form of gorgeous pieces of postcard sized artworks. Each person who joins the swap is given 3 people to send their creations to and the only rule, is that you create with your heart open and include a positive note for the recipients on the back of your postcard or as a little love note inside.


Here are some of the BEAUTIFUL heART energy pieces of art that have traveled around the world since we started in 2011. We have had ceramics, paintings, sewn items, collage and lots more exchanged.


We also have a flickr group with some of the gorgeous from previous swaps

Your host

The exchange is hosted by Louise Gale and was started in 2011.

“Giving and receiving is the constant flow of energy for our heart and what better way than to create, send and receive something beautiful and hand-made through your letter box. I would love to inspire you to live and create from the heart everyday, so it is so wonderful to host and take part in this global art swap”.


The heART exchange theme is

“Collaged Quotes”

So all you will need to do is create something from the heart in the form of a collage or tiny postcard of art – you can use images and words from a magazine or use one of your favorite quotes. For inspiration, see my Quotes Pinterest Board here. We are going to send out lots of heart energy. You can use any materials you like, paint, draw, collage and sew – its totally up to you – whatever speaks to you from your heart.
