    Talking Envie Addicts Unite! December

    I'm an Envie Addict! Hopefully, there are more of you out there! What? Your 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, and collaged. Sky's the limit. Getting personal mail is nice, but getting a mini traveling museum is the best!
    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 It Works:
    1)I will assign a partner for each player.
    2)You will design an Envie for your partner. You could use their likes and dislikes as a
    guide for what you will create. However, for the most part it's artist choice.
    Getting something you never seen before, is a good way to expose yourself to
    new ideas/styles.
    3)Envelopes at a minimum should be at least the small sized business envelope.
    Which is approximately 3 5/8 - 6 1/2 inches. Other than that, it's artist choice.
    Perhaps you feel like drawing and you send someone a 6x9 envelope, where as
    another artist wanted to keep the Envie a bit smaller. Also, if you wish to create
    your own envie, by all means, do it! Use magazines, brown bags, candy wrappers.
    Postcards now welcomed! You can do Envies or 4x6 postcards.
    4)Use the whole envelope. Remember it's eye candy. Draw your viewer in to
    take a good long look. Add poems, quotes, rubber stamping, lino prints,
    drawings, paintings, clippings, and anything else that will make your partner want
    to experience your art.
    5)So, the deadline. Envies need to be sent by the 15th of each month. Communication is key, let your
    partner know that you've sent out your Envie. If your going to be late, let your
    partner know. We all get busy, it happens sometimes. I believe most of us are
    pretty forgiving of that. If you have to withdraw, and can't complete your Envie, let me know right away. I will
    cover your spot. (Let me know if you need me to cover it, or I will assume that you sent one.)
    6)On a new month you will get a new partner. (I do this automatically for the next month. If you want out for the following month, please give me advanced notice.)
    7)Do not post your Envie until AFTER your partner has received it.. Let's
    keep that a surprise for the receiver. When it has been received, show off your
    work. It would be awesome to see what the others have gotten.
    8)All Envies will be sent "Naked" meaning they will go thru the mail as is. Do not put them in another envelope. Place something sturdy like cereal or cracker boxes inside to ensure it will arrive safely.
    9)Leave Itrader for your partner when Envie is received.
    10)Finally, any non-communicators will be dropped from new partners list. So please, keep the lines of communication open.

    * It has come to my attention that some of our International friends might be discouraged to join. The reason being is that they are afraid their Envie would get stolen. If this is the case, international players have the option to have their Envie shipped in a plain envelope. Their Envie, however, must have their partners address and faux/real postage in place.


    Optional: As a bonus, I thought we could do an optional birthday Envie. If you see that it is someones birthday that month, whether they are a partner or not, send them a birthday themed Envie. Just make sure they get it on their birthday month. Again, it's just a fun bonus, but not required. (I won't know your birthday month unless you have it listed on your profile. If you don't want to list it on your profile, but want to receive a possible birthday envie, let me know that it is your b-day month. I will add you to the list. If you receive a Birthday Envie, Please leave "You Rock" points to the sender.

    Checking in as well. 24 days to Christmas!! Yikes! Haven't even started shopping. We only exchange gifts in my immediate family:my sons and their families. Missing a daughter in law this year. Oh well, more for the rest!! Wish I had a gazillion dollars to just spend on everyone. But I know the best in life are free: love, compassion, hugs, time together, hope.

    Well just when I thought I'd figured out your system and who my next partner would be, you changed it up. Looks like the list shrunk?

    I am here for December!~ I too have a fresh day's old post on my blog if anyone is interested. I'll be adding another post later today to catch up with all I've accomplished since the last post.
    http://creation-a-day.blogspot.com/

    I offered some plastic doilies to folks a few weeks ago. I have only heard that three of the seven I sent out have made their destinations. I'm wondering if more have arrived?

    Happy December Everyone!
    Make some art, then make some more.
