I love these type of mystery supply swaps. I've participated in a few in other groups that were just great fun. And it's great to see everyone's work, as they are usually so different.

In this swap, I will mail everyone a mystery supply that must be used in your mail art or paper craft, in some way. You will receive enough supplies to make at least two items. One you will mail to your one partner. One you will mail to me for sending out the supply to you. I will email my mailing info to you.

You are not paying for the supply itself, but will send mail art to me to reimburse my cost in shipping the item to you. You can use any other mediums or supplies to create your mail art. In fact, most of the supplies you use will be from your own stash. Everyone will receive the same item(s) to use, but how you use it is up to you. Your mail art can be any kind of mail art......examples include, but not limited to: ATC, Postcard, Bookmark, cards w envelopes for your partner to use, Decorated envelope w/tuck in, tags, Altered file folders, etc... Again, Mail Art is Any Art mailed through the postal system, so you really can make just about any Art you want. Just make sure it has been made with quality and care.

I would love to see what people send and receive. I will post a thread for the mystery supply swaps in our AMA forum for people to post their swap photos.

This first mystery supply will be an easy one. And this swap will be USA only. I will do another supply swap shortly for International swappers. This is limited to 11 people. There will be a long swap time frame to allow for the item to reach you, and you to create something. Thanks.

And as a side note, I will close the swap signup, when we reach 11 people, and start the swap soon after. So the start date first listed may change, but the due date will not.

And, if anyone else has an abundance of a supply, you are more than welcome to host #2 in this series, either the USA version or International. Just send me a message.

Can reimbursement be forever stamps? That's what I've done in a similar swap, per hostess request. How do you feel about that?

wolfeagle 02/25/2019 #

No need to send me stamps. Thanks for offering though.

What are you looking for regarding reimbursement?

JuneRosebud 03/ 1/2019 #

Can you give examples of what might be sent but not actually say what the item is?

wolfeagle 03/ 3/2019 #

The only reimbursement is for my postage to you........in the form of any mail art that you want to send back to me which also uses the supply I send out. No additional reimbursement is needed. The supply could be anything used in crafting.

We've reached 11 participants, so I've closed the swap sign ups and partners have been assigned. I will get these out to you all either today or tomorrow. Have fun! Thanks for playing in this first round.
