    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! January

    B]I'm an Envie Addict! Hopefully, there are more of you out there![/B] 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 January birthday! None
    *Birthday addresses an be obtained through Kwailin777.

    Me. Me. Me. I want to play this month! Happy New Year!

    Here's the thing, folks. If something followed you (kind of like one of those annoying strings that gets stuck on your pants or sweater and you keep swiping at it, but it just clings) into 2021 that you thought you'd left on the other side, do this.

    Take the that thing (thought, clingy string, whatever), ball it up as tight as you can in your hand, then haul back to give it an overhand, underhand, or some other form of throwing, and throw that sucker right back into 2020. Be careful that you don't throw it so hard that it lands in 2019 or 2018 or some other year.

    Just don't wad up those envies or air hugs or your pet or your family member. And please don't throw the unwanted, uninvited thing at another person. The point isn't to give it to someone else, the point is to get it back where it belongs. It's kind of like a backward time travel.

    Tuesday morning is eye check up morning and then I'll be able to order some new eyeglasses. My frames are kind of broken.

    That's a good way to look at it! Funny too...about not throwing it back into the years that were great. Could you imagine our selves in 2019 saying WTF?! Where did that come from?! LOL!

    Hope your new frames will be snazzy

    Indeed. Besides, Mel, I'd be afraid that if we tossed it back too far, we might have to relive it. Ughhhh. Well, okay, maybe some things I wouldn't mind reliving, but ....

    I hope you're doing well. I'm super thankful that I don't mind staying home too much. I miss hiking and some of my regular get togethers, but this staying home also gives me more time to read, paint, draw, and attend some new get togethers. And I don't spend money on gas so I have more money to spend on art supplies!

    I'm working mostly in watercolor right now.

    Miss, I've finally got your Envie done. I just wanted to add a bit more to it. I'm sorry that I'm almost always late with things...I've been having hard time keeping up with everything. Gah
