    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! March

    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...

    Please feel free to start posting pic's of the Valentine's that we all sent out last month. Here are mine...At first it started out with just the black background and the hearts...but I was thinking...it's so depressing looking! LOL! So I thought...I'll just put some swirls of paint on it...I did a swipe on one side of a heart...and thought...hmmm, that looks like a wing...so instead of swirls...I made "wings" on all of the hearts. It also needed some messiness...so I took my new white Posca marker and scribbled in the quote. The pen is a new favorite of mine. If any of you get one...shake the pen between every few words/strokes...it'll keep the white bright...anywho...here's what I sent...

    I'm going to have to follow along for now. Spring clean up is coming and I also have a job now mentoring a young man in his new landscaping business. Also have some art show events on the horizon and I need to work on inventory for them.

    Sign me up, please, Mel.
    Please be aware that I occasionally have vitreous hemorrhages in my sighted eye. It can take a week to a month (or longer) before it clears up & I'm able to see again. This means that, should you trade with me in any way, you may wind up waiting for your art until my vision clears. If that happens, I'll let you know as soon as possible.

    I LOVE Posca pens & have them in all colors. The white is awesome & they write over everything.

    I didn't take a pic of my Valentine stack, but I did send one "to me from me." The USPS added their art to the card, as they cancelled the postage on the wrong side, so you can see the cancel marks up on the left top of the heart.

    That's what happened to one of mine that I sent to meself. I was bummed at first because the stamp wasn't cancelled and almost put back into Big Blue, then saw the wavy lines on the front.
