    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! February

    I'm an Envie Addict! Hopefully, there are more of you out there! What? You're a newb? What's an Envie you say? If you don't already know, Envies are altered envelopes. They can be drawn on, painted on, upcycled, collage and mix media up! Sky's the limit. Getting personal mail is nice, but getting a mini traveling museum is the best! We also allow postcards!
    So here's what I propose, let's get a good sized group going for a monthly swap. It would be a nice way to get our fix of envies on a regular basis. Let's share our ideas, links to inspiration, and get to know each other as artist.

    How the NEW sign up works:

    First, I will post a new thread like normal. For the first week I will be accepting players. Players have the 1st thru 7th of the month to come to the thread and say, "I wanna play." Once you join, there is no withdrawing.

    Next, I will make up a partner's list and post it on the 8th or the 9th of the month. Once I have the player's list up, I will send everyone my usual monthly update via PM.

    My suggested mail out date would be the 15th, but for the most part your Envie needs to be in the hands of your partner by the last day of the month. If anything is late, there is a little forgiveness if you are communicating with your partner.

    In the past, we've had a lot of peeps that flaked on their trade. Itrader points will now play a big part in who plays in E.A.U. If you had a wonderful experience, fabulous! Leave positive points. If you had a hiccup, but your not too bent outta shape about it, leave a neutral point. If you had a total "flaker" and your experience was horrible...well then you might want to think about a negative point. (Consider yourself warned.)

    How will the points help us? I figure it this way. If you had a neutral point as a result of playing in EAU, you will be given a second chance, but a second one in a row will be considered a negative point. If you've had a negative point within 3 months no matter where you were playing, you cannot participate.


    On a lighter note, we celebrate birthdays! When you sign up and it happens to be your birthday month say, "I wanna play and I'm celebrating a birthday!" Other player's just might send ya some happy mail. ...just be sure to leave a YouRock point to those that RAK you.
    *Birthday addresses can be obtained through Kwailin777.

    Naked! Is how we send our Envies...as is. However, there has been times that mail has gone missing. If you feel that your Envie might find the same fate, you can send it, within a plain envelope. But! ... your art has to be dressed up with faux postage and addresses.

    Stuff, your Envie's with something sturdy like cereal boxes or junk mail. Send it out, but don't post a pic at AFA until you hear that your partner has received it. Save the surprise for them. Once, you get word that they have it, share it all over the place. We're nosey! We wanna see too!

    Size Rules: Your Envie has to be a minimum of 3 5/8 X 6 1/2 inches. (Small Business Envelope) ...and up...

    Celebrating a February birthday! None
    *Birthday addresses an be obtained through Kwailin777.

    Also, the Valentine swap was brought up in the last thread. I will set it up. This is how it works. I will partner people up like normal for those who wants to do a one on one Envie trade. As a side thang, I will set up a Valentines list of players.If you want to do this extra swap, you will make a Valentine postcard for each person on the list. They can all be the same style postcard. So, for example if there are 10 people playing, you can make 9 postcards with the same design. (Some people like to make them different, that's also fine.) The Valentines sign up will stay open til the 7th and close on the 8th (Just like our regular swap.) Although Valentines day is on the 14th, you still have until the end of the month to have them sent. So no pressure!

    If that explanation was weird...feel free to post questions

    Mel, you could still beat him up. Seriously, he did take Bill's name and went to his Buddhist church and asked everyone to pray for Bill. And then asked if I wanted some sleeping aids. No, I don't want sleeping aids. Yes, pray for Bill if that will make you feel better.

    Woo Hoo, look at all of the people on the list.

    Lazyshadows, your Jan EAU is in the mail - dropped at the actual USPS.

    Trina, I don't understand people now a days. It's just plain weird for your doc not to see emotions as part of your well being. 3 days in, is early days to consider being able to pay attention to a court case. Gah!

    Jazzie, whatcha listening to? Anyone else listening to Podcasts? My son has me hooked on Morbid. I didn't think I would like it because it's about murder cases. However, they have specials where they read their listeners letters for close calls and weird happenings. It's a more light hearted story telling.

    Nanner, it for sure cracked me up when I first saw it! LOL!
