    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! October

    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 of the month.

    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.

    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...

    October Partner's List

    TrinaLD - Tandy
    Lindylu - Jezebelle
    Suntrade - Miss Iowa
    Dnewton972 - Angelmarlo

    I'm in ,too

    After reading your post about lack of info on your postcards, Mel, I think I forgot to put my AFA/EAU info on my cards, too.
    I did put my name & address on, though.

    Even if you have a complete meltdown...you should have all the "feels" you need to have. But also surround yourself with friends and family <3

    I'm going to lurk for EAU this month. My Halloween cards are postal as of today. I busted out a favorite art supply to make them: glow-in-the-dark paint. I really enjoyed having a Halloween postie trade, and wouldn't mind making that an annual event like we do with Valentines.

    I would like to play.

    Also here is the one I did last month, I know I took a picture before I sent, but cannot find it, so here it is before I folded the envelope, and added the address and stamp.

    Halloween Mail Call!

    There were a bevy of beautiful Halloween posties in my box today!

    Thank you TrinaLD, for a very happy jack!
    Thank you LindyLu, my postie arrived mostly intact, I’m sure I can cast a spell that will make it good as new!
    Thank you Nicky, for a card perfectly tailored to me!

    And one more… a gorgeous spooky, multilayered hand with a death’s head cicada! I love it!
    Is that from you, kwailin777?

    You can expect your iTraders late tonight, or tomorrow.

    Sooooo….

    October EAU. Let me make sure i have the straight of things.

    1 - The envie can actually be a postie, if I so choose?
    2 - I can sign up for one month, with no obligation to do another, until I sign up again?
    3 - October envies ideally mail out around mid month, but must arrive by Halloween?

    Jezebelle:
    1. Yes. Altered envelope or postcard.
    2. Yes. You must sign up each month to play that month. Drop in or out as life allows.
    3. Yes. You'll usually know your partner's name around the 8th or 9th. Mail so that they receive by the end of the month.
