Don't wait around only to be disappointed this Christmas! Act Now!

Send "THE BEST!" Mail Art/Mixed Media related Christmas Gift to your assigned Super Partner. Then you will be automatically eligible to receive "THE BEST!" Mail Art/Mixed Media related Christmas Gift from your Assigned Super Partner.

The guidelines are ::

  • Send one "Mail Arted" up Box - that can go straight under the tree, to be admired in excited anticipation. it would be nice (but optional) if the box has a lid. You partner will most likely reuse as a collage scrap box.

  • A mix of handmade and store bought items

  • One Note/Card or Letter to your partner.

OK so stick to those four things then the rest is up to you - with obvious thought to your partner's Artful Addictions.

Inspirational Ideas to include::

  • Handmade or store bought envelopes, note cards or writing paper

  • Pens/markers

  • Ink pads

  • Rubber/cling on stamps

  • Stickers/address labels

  • New Postage stamps(with thoughts to country)/Faux postage/old cancelled postage

Great writeup, Danielle—I love your enthusiasm! Is there any chance you could add my thought that it would be nice (but optional) if the box has a lid? Or did you decide against that for some reason?

Bedazzle 10/10/2012 #

Added Fi :) Wasnt against it - just an oversight.

Kattera22 10/18/2012 #

Is there a specific size that would be good to stay close to?

Bedazzle 10/20/2012 #

No not really, whatever fits the 12 gifts in. Just remembering that this is a SUPER gift so be generous and put some effort in - that's what counts.

Oh boy, Oh boy, Oh boy!!!! :)

FiWebster 11/ 1/2012 #

I have a suggested item that's not on the list: cool-looking zipper pouches or other similar receptacles for keeping supplies in. ('Just thought I'd throw that into the mix.)

FarStarr 11/18/2012 #

Do we have to wait for Christmas to unwrap???

MissThundercat 11/19/2012 #

hmm, i'm not sure if i can wait to unwrap the presents either ;)

FiWebster 11/20/2012 #

I think we should at least wait for Winter Solstice to unwrap...anticipation increases the pleasure!

FiWebster 11/21/2012 #

I was first to get my outgoing box into the mail! I can't believe it: that like never happens. Something must be unraveling in the stars.

I got mine from Mandy today and it's going to take superhuman strength to not open it.
