Have a favorite quote, or two or three?  Fill an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper with quotes.  Include who the quote is from, if known.  Make 12 copies, and bring them to exchange.  If you go “quote happy”, because we all know there are a lot of great quotes out there, you can exchange multiple sheets, just keep printing to one side of the paper.  You will go home with 12 pages of quotes gathered by other people. Also, please bring 3 stamps on the theme of INSECTS for others to stamp 3 times on their own paper with their own ink.
