    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! December

    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 December birthday! None!
    *Birthday addresses an be obtained through Kwailin777.

    I'd love to play, but will not be able to until next month.
    Will there be a separate thread for January?

    THANKS!

    A little off subject, but will there be a Holidaze gift exchange this year? I’m trying to figure out if I can (sanely) join it if there is. It looked like fun last year.

    I'm just lurking for now. I have a couple days to decide whether I can pull off any envie this month.

    Mel, I know what you mean about "the job" interfering with "the art". No worries about being late. I'm happy to get mail any day.

    I'm working on my ornament for Cecile and it's coming together. I was over halfway done with it and discovered that the hanger was broken! I think I accidentally snipped it with my scissors. It is fixable, but GAH! I just added more steps for myself.

    I will be lurking out this month again, please.
    But I received my ornament from Nanner yesterday, I have to admit even though it is tough, I have not yet peeked into the package because my ornament for her went out only yesterday. I feel it would not be fair if I enjoy mine already and she has not yet gotten hers And because I wanted it to be a surprise I also didn‘t check into the last months thread so as not to spoil it.
    So Nanner please give me a shout once it has reached you
    And I actually would be up for a Holidaze gift exchange again...

    Lois, welcome to our group. We play monthly! So, drop in any month and feel free to chit chat until then.

    Rosecake & Gem, as long as I have 2 or more peeps, I suppose that's a swap. I'll have to look back on the old swaps to see when I started them...I think January?

    Miss I, I sent your Envie out yesterday <3

    Hmm, looks like Calm After The Holidaze has started at the beginning of December last year. I think I'll wait 'til the end of December if that's okay with ya'll. What do you peeps think?...or beginning next month?

    And after birthday spankings, there's the old "a pinch to grow an inch."
