    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! August

    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 August birthday! None?
    *Birthday addresses an be obtained through Kwailin777.

    Me, please! I don't know about my muse, but I've been making a lot of art - mail art and watercolor - and writing and typesetting.

    By the way, I received lovely envies from my June and July partners - Cecileb and Beverley. I'll be leaving I-trader today.

    Hubby had another doctor appointment yesterday (this makes a pile of doctors for various specialties). He has kidney cancer on his left kidney. The doctor said that the good news is that it is low risk and grows very slowly. It'll be monitored again in January to determine what the next step might be.

    I smashed my thumb in the door on my friend's birthday 5 months ago. She turned 89 and is the most lovely woman I know. The bruise still hasn't fully grown out. It was at the base of my thumbnail and now it's almost at the top, but not quite. I guess this is one way to track time.

    Oh brother.

    I see that the books are now up at MarinMOCA's bidding site. Here's a link to my book. I'm afraid that they did not photograph it very well. It's a tiny book that closes and fits inside the palm of my hand and is more interesting, I believe, when photographed from the other side. I took a ton of photos before sending it in (YAY).

    Please take a look and look at all of the other interesting and creative altered book arts and constructed books. There's a lot of inspiration over there.

    Hi. I will pass this month; my Mum passed away and we still have her funeral and such to attend to. Not really feeling up to 'arting' right now to be honest.
    I'll keep swinging by the thread for chit-chat and return in September.

    Beverly, I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that I am sending prayers p for you & your family.

    I received the July envie from RuthE & it is a delightful pink flamigo. The USPS machines did a number on it & put it back together with rubber bands & stuck it in a plastic sleeve with their apologies for the damage. It's all good & i am delighted to have it.

    Mel, I'm in again this month.
