Time for Round 3! :)

If you're like me, you love to get letters in your mailbox... But the envelope is just as exciting to me as the letter is!

For this swap, you will send a little Mail Art love to one partner. And we're going to focus more on the envelope than what's inside, though you should enclose something... a letter, a card, stickers, a bookmark, etc. It'd be nice to check out your partner's profile and see what he/she would like. : ) And you may even start a lovely pen pal friendship!

Remember... having a nice well-filled-out profile will help your partner know what kinds of things to send you. So please make sure your profile includes some of your likes and hobbies.

Now, on to the envelope... Be creative! Decorate it however you'd like, but really put forth some effort. You can draw, paint, stamp, paste... Pick a theme, or be totally random. The possibilities are endless! And don't feel intimidated... This is for beginners, after all! :) But of course, non-beginners are welcome to play too!

Receivers, please don't be picky. If they put forth the effort, rate them accordingly. And please don't flake... nothing is sadder than opening an empty mailbox.

You'll have two weeks from when the swap closes to get it sent out. This swap is open for everyone, so join and have fun!! : )

Unfortunately I am finding that quite a few people seem to be flaking on these swaps, so I am going to monitor who joins now. No one with unexplained 1's or 3's in the last 3 months will be allowed to participate, which means if you don't send me a message explaining why you received them by the sign-up deadline, I will ban you from this swap.

P.S. If we do have any flakers, I'll be happy to angel...

hi so what i do next...

This is going to be my first swap via swapbot. How do I know to whom I am sending my letter?

angellarae 11/ 8/2011 #

Welcome to swapbot @RedBritArt Once partners are assigned, you should get an email telling you to come back to this swap page. There will be a link on the top right that says "See the partners you send to." When you click on that, a box will pop up that gives you your partner's name, address, email, and user name.

Hope that helps! :)

I am so excited I just found swap bot today!! I have had pen pals and participated in many swaps through them but have not done it in years. And one of my very best friends and I use to always decorate our envelopes with every letter we sent to each other. I am excited to see everyone's works of art.

Thank you so much for keeping these going. I'm having a blast creating them and my students are having a blast when I show them what comes in the mail, an from where.

I love these swaps. I art most of my mail anyway, so this is just like another daily swap for me.

It gets to be a challenge to make each envelop different.
