    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! June

    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 June birthday! Beverley & Lindylu

    I'd like to play this month. I'm concerned, though, because some of my mailings have gone MIA. When possible, I've been sending replacements, but I wonder if anyone else is having this problem.

    I'm thinking about it so that must mean I'm coming back to life. Let me work out a design then I'll commit one way or the other. I've been missing everyone.

    Oh my goodness, Fandanie. That is crazy. I'm so glad to hear that it arrived. I just keep hoping that wherever my MIA pieces are, they end up being enjoyed by someone.

    Mel, I'm definitely in for June!

    Wow. What a start to a new week!! Just received March envie from KarenR in Australia.
    I am just “blown away” by the creativity and artistry she put into the swap envie.
    I am totally inspired to work a little harder on my future swap items. Thank you so much Karen !!!

    I may lurk for now. Kinda wrapped around the farming axle here. Learning to make cheese and grow mushrooms and then keeping up with all the property stuff and the garden.

    I'll play this month, please.

    I got called back to work last week. I'm limited to 20 hours per week, but that is fine with me. After all, I'm supposed to be part-time.

    Trina & Fandanie, it's weird...just as you're thinking that you've lost mail forever...it ends up at it's destination

    Neener, cheese and mushroom?! That sounds fun...take pics of your progress...I'd love to see how it turns out.

    Linda, I'm so happy to see you here! Hope you play...and if you don't hope you'll blab with us!

    Miss Iowa, hope your way back to work goes smoothly!
