    Cool Envie Addicts Unite! April

    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 April birthday! Cecileb
    *Birthday addresses an be obtained through Kwailin777.

    I will sign up this month, Mel, but I'm still concerned that the envie I sent my March partner was lost in the mail. I'll post a picture here later today. I've made a new one for Fandanie and will mail that today.

    I'm in - sign me up!

    Mel - all is well. I had two major surgeries and three trips to the hospital between December 24 and February 24 but the experts took out the bits causing trouble and fixed me up. In the end, it was my appendix that caused all the trouble. I had low-grade appendicitis for about a year (unknown to me) and a slow leak of bacteria which caused havoc. But I'm all good now and so grateful to all the doctors and nurses. The worst thing was - I didn't do any art/crafting for months!

    Trina, seems like mail has been moving slow in general...but it seems like you have it covered.

    Cecile, I'm so glad to hear that you are all better! Now, let's get you all caught up in the art part of life <3

    It's been nearly a month, Mel, and as far as I can tell, Fandanie never received it. I hope that someone is enjoying it!

    Cecileb, so glad to see you here. And happy birthday month to you!

    Tomorrow's a big day. I'm going for my first vaccine shot.

    Envie sent to Fandanie for March EAU (front and back)

    Because I am a food service worker...I was able to get my vaccines. I had my second shot last week Tuesday. First shot I felt nothing. Second shot after 24 hours...I got a fever and chills it was like a storm that came in quickly and left quickly. I slept if off with the aide of some Tylenol. (All of which is very normal by the way.) So, after another week...it should be at it's fullest potential

    Sign me up.

    I got my vaccine (Moderna) as well (health care essential worker). The only side effect I had was a sore arm. It was mild after the first shot, but it was more intense and lasted longer after the second shot. They told me I would have a fever and chills, but I didnít.

    I received the Moderna yesterday. No problems. I even missed out on the sore arm because I know to keep moving my arm after a vaccine. I am already scheduled to receive the second one on April 30 - same time, same vaccine location.

    I'm not terribly concerned about side effects. I was sick for so long last year that I am prepared for anything. I think I started getting sick (extreme fatigue - so bad that I couldn't stay awake for more than 20 minutes or so and that continued, though it got better, through most of the year) in January and February and it didn't really begin to improve until late summer. My doctor kept telling me it was allergies. Maybe. Maybe not. Whatever it was, it was miserable.

    I did mail out the replacement envie to Fandanie and hope that one arrives.

    I am also having my vaccine in a couple of weeks. and i am a bit scared. In here they are now vaccinating high risk groups and people from 60 to 70 People younger than this have to wait longer. I do hope this is the solution to all the problems the virus has brought upon us.
