    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...

    Celebrating a May birthday! None?
    *Birthday addresses an be obtained through Kwailin777.

    I am in for May please.

    Vaccine part 2 went well yesterday but I was so tired from the number of stops we had to make (I hate having to do 3, 4, 5, ... stops in a day) and possibly because I'd gone longer than I should have before eating lunch and longer than I should have for drinking my water. I feel great today, sitting here painting.

    Mel I have been kept way too busy with chickens, new greenhouses and vegetable growing and (unfortunately) way too much homeschooling. There was a reason in my youth why I did not become a teacher! But now they are all finally back in school for another month/2 months and so I get to have some time to myself again
    I really felt it was time to finally get back into mail art, I missed the chats and getting happy mail so much!

    GEM!!!! It's so great to "see" you here!!!!

    Okay folks, here's my story. Every night there are footsteps clomping across the top of my roof. The first night I was kind of startled and wondering why a person would be up there (yes, they were that loud and heavy). Then I remembered the mountain lion in the area. And the coyote. And the many wild turkeys. And that 5 ft. raccoon that the mountain lion guy told me about. And the opossums. And and and and.

    Well, last night I sort of caught sight of the culprits. Yes, I wrote culprits. There were 2 sets of glowing eyes staring down from the roof right above the entryway. I went out back first and no luck. Then I took the little flashlight (CSI would be proud of mine) out the front door and shined it up toward the roof. I don't know who was more startled. Me or the pair of unknown creatures with the glowing eyes. Well, all was quiet the rest of the night.

    I may have to make an envie piece with glowing eyes on a roof.

    Wow, sounds like you had an exciting nightly adventure Trina! I am really curious now, please do tell us what the creatures were if ever you find out! And I think you should definitely go for a glowing eyes envy

    On a completely unrelated subject, I recently reminisced about EAU (yes, it's what finally made me sign up again) and remembered how much difficulty I had painting with watery mediums on normal off the shelf envelopes. So I devised a genius plan to make my own envelopes from watercolour paper. I was sooo proud of my idea... Only to then realise that (nearly) everybody does it
