    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! May

    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...

    Thank you for keeping the shares up Mel, I loved the metallic watercolour comparison. There are just so many on the market, and even more available (and homemade) on etsy...
    I got myself a Rubens metallic set, and yes, I got myself the large set! They are beautiful colours, no pigments, all the colour and shimmer comes from the mica powder.

    And this is a picture of the post office where I posted last months envie

    Tuosist, Ireland

    and a park where we went for a hike with the twins. It is a park within a working farm and the lady collecting our entry fee had a little lamb run after her constantly.

    I agree, I think Australia always takes just a little bit longer.

    OK, I just thought I would ask. I so loved getting all the Valentines Cards from everyone. I have furrbabies and some of my friends send me Mothers Day cards since I am the only one in my circle that does not have human kids.

    I have PM'd my address.

    I have to admit I rather get Valentines than Mothers Day cards. A lot of the time I feel that being a mom is the most undervalued „job“ there is, and half my kids are too young to hand over the mothers day gifts they make in school, they just keep them for themselves. I never get a card from the hubster, if he gave me one I would suspect foul play. But Valentines from EAU? Could a day/ month get any better? I love getting art, and right now I love arting again.
    And Pouringdiva I have not forgotten: PINK is your favourite colour

    Also: furbabies are so much easier than the humanoid kind...
