    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! January

    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...

    I'm in. I'm in. Happy 2023, Mel! Did you lose power last night or this morning? We did down here most of last night and 4 hours this morning. Good thing for lots of little flashlights and portable, battery lights, and an old transistor radio!

    Our lights flickered a little but we didn't lose power. We did lose internet for a wee bit though. Other than that we were good

    I also forgot that next month is for Valentines. So I'm gonna open up the sign up for the Valentines postcards now and close them on the 14th of this month. I have a small request. Please make them unusual shapes not just rectangles. However if that's just not something you want to do, rectangles are fine. I never want to halt someone from doing what they like. Same rules apply as the Halloween postcards. Make one for everyone on the list and aim to have them arrive on Valentines day, but latest arrival is to have it sent within the month.

    So wants to make Valentine postcards?

    Oh my gosh, the mail carrier delivered to me my partner's envie from December. Yes, it took this long, probably stuck in the weather somewhere for a bit but my Ginger Bread Man is happy and dancing and bringing me joy! Thanks Wildholly!

    Glad to see we have a nice group forming for both lists! Also, Nanner gave me a heads up on postage for irregular shaped postcards. If you do them add a little more postage. A regular stamp and a postcard stamp together outta do the trick Thanks Nan!
