    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! July

    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 July birthday! Nicky

    Like that cool vid Mel on the wax wraps. I have a ton of pretty fabric languishing in a bin. Good way to get some use out of it.

    J, I didn't know that it was that easy to make those wraps! I thought it was something that you just had to buy

    Not playing this month........again. I'm up to my eyeballs in packing boxes & all my art/craft stuff is packed. However, I am so excited to report that I have found my house! I have made an offer on a cute, little bungalow style mobile home in a park on a lake. My agent & I are waiting to see if the offer is accepted. So all of you who have been praying, sending good thoughts, karma, whatever, I want to thank you, but don't stop until the offer is accepted.

    I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY! to all who are having one this month now in case I don't get back to ther thread for a while.


    (I'm tho exthited, tho exthited, tho exthited!!!)

    Oh gosh! I would like to give this a try if that is okay with everyone? I've never done an Envie before; this will be my first. Are both sides of the Envie decorated?

    Wonderful Beverley - there is a first time for everything... and believe me, this is addictive
    Most decorate both sides but it is up to you how you create your art envie ... can't wait to see the result of your first one!

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I may have a question or two as we go along, I hope you don't mind?
    So, I should make it as though I am mailing it, right? … although I may put it in a larger envelope to mail it (I don't trust CanadaPost) Thanks for your help and patience.

    We are always open for questions Beverly, questions get us all excited
    We usually mail the decorated envelopes „naked“ as they are, but if you feel better about mailing it inside another envelope to protect it that is fine as well. Some put faux postage on the decorated envie if they place it inside a mailer. I can‘t wait to see what you come up with.
