This swap is for artists who love mail art and want to invest a little creativity into it.

1) Envelopes. Must be handmade. You can deconstruct a envelope you like and use it as a template. You can use wrapping paper, typing paper, anything you think the post office can handle. You must alter it in some way-- drawing, printing, stencilling, collage or something of your own devising. Whatever you do, it should be done my hand, not on a computer. Handmade stamps and handmade stickers are great. Please no mass-produced items, unless they are super-hand altered.

2) Letter. There must be something inside the envelope. A drawing, a print, a collage, a pop-up, or something altered. Please include some writing. Tell your recipient a little about what you did, or whatever is on your mind.

Newbies, please PM me. Ratings of 4.5 and higher only.

This is international.

Mine are going out tomorrow to Brianna R., Coorain D. and Edgaras P. I hope you like them. I put a lot of thought and effort into them.

Photos of the outside front of the envelopes will be posted tomorrow.

On second thought, the add-a-photo form looks like it is for someone RECEIVING a swap, so I won't be posting a photo of the ones I am sending after all, I don't guess.

Wanda, You can put your own photos up! If you want to wait until the recipients have had time to receive them, that's okay.

Wanda 08/30/2007 #

Okay, FarStarr - I just posted a photo of the fronts of the envelopes. I had fun making them. I just hope my three partners like them.
