This swap is for those of us that enjoy doodle on every little thing or is not such an expert at mail art.

In this swap you must :

decorate an entire envelope - meaning not just sticker slapping or just putting some swirls in the corner of the envelope . the art on your envelope must have a theme whether its zentangle or butterflies , doesn't matter just something that you would enjoy to receive.

write a short letter about what does art mean to you

include a surprise , sender's choice

No unexplained 1's or 3's. I understand there are unfair raters out there as well as their are flakers.

If you need any ideas i encourage you to surf the net. Don't stray away from any of your creative nature.

If i left anything out or if you have questions feel free to PM me.

Is anything supposed to be put into the envelope or are we just sending off a decorated blank envie?

I worked for the PO for 36 yrs and was always amazed at some of the envelopes that the sender had drawn on...and the most amazing thing about them was that they were always from people in prison. We figured they didn't have anything better to do...and why hadn't they put that talent to work instead of living a life of crime....most of them were beautiful! A shame for all that talent to go to waste.
