    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! TrinaLD & Nicky

    Hello Addicts! I have somewhat of a rerun of a share. Here are some craft room ideas for ya...Enjoy!

    No link for this one...but as you can see in the pic...you can save those pant hangers store store paper!



    Need a unique way to display your latest ATC's? How's about upcycling your brushes?



    This is one of my favorite display ideas, but I still haven't run into these frames...They are old price signs that were used in stores.



    If I had a whole room to myself for a craft room...I'd love to have an art wall with a mural and other art, just like this one!

    I had joined a local small painters group last month. We meet once a week for about 2 hours and draw and paint and chat. I was now given the news they will be having their annual exhibition in November and they will want me to contribute! Yikes! All the art I do is either in my sketchbook or being shipped off across the pond. What do I do? What do I do?

    Hi Gem,

    Okay, that seems to be my problem recently. Here's what you do. Work like you have never worked before. How many pieces do you need to send? This is great news, by the way. And what a great group you have.

    As for the June swap, here's where I stand everyone. I've got a few more postcards to finish and mail off (they'll be in the mail on Thursday since tomorrow's a holiday). I've not yet posted I-Trader and will do that tomorrow (it's a holiday).

    As for other news - all good. I had 2 more pieces accepted into an exhibit at a new museum (both are photographs that fit the theme) and I'm now a freelance journalist for several very local newspapers and am really glad to have this opportunity.

    I've received several lovely postcards and will take the time tomorrow to look at each and every one of them. Thank you.

    If you celebrate Independence Day, be sure to be safe. If you are outside of the U.S., have a wonderful Wednesday.

  24. Thanks Gemininorn, Syklops thanked this post
