Calligraphers must specialize in this kind of activity.  I belonged to a
calligraphers group in Houston TX one year and they organized exchanges of
beautiful handmade/calligraphed cards at Christmas and Valentine's Day.
You got the same number of cards as you brought.  But the pressure was on
to be creative, and I was way out of my league.   I've seen quilters do the
same thing with quilted squares which you could put together and make a
friendship hanging.  You are right.  It is great fun!
