Details of swap:

Do you love getting mail but are sick of getting the same old plain white envelopes? Want a low stress swap and love to doodle? This swap is all about brightening someone's mailbox by sending them a piece of mailable art!

In this swap there are two options: Decorating an envelope and filling it with another piece of art.
OR
sending two decorated postcards to your swap partner This swap is intended to be low stress, cheap, fun short and sweet! You really can have it all! Cheesy

The Fine Print:
1. Good communication is very important! You must take responsibility and PM your partner AND the swap organizer when you send AND receive your mail.
2. Because the envelopes do not qualify for DCNs No DCNs will be required for this swap but you MUST agree to resend to your partner after two weeks from the official send out date if the postcard is not received.
3. Even though this mail is about art and art can have any kind of aesthetic send out art that you would love to receive yourself.
4. Everyone who signs up for the swap must post in this thread!
5. You are required to scan or take a picture of what your partner sent you and post it in the gallery, if this is not possible LET ME KNOW so I can partner you with someone who is wiling to post pictures for you!
6. Because this is my first time organizing a swap I am limiting it to 25 people, I don't think we will have that many but I am stating it in the details anyway Smiley

As I was filling out the questionnaire I realized that I might not be as artsy as was intended, but I decided to give it a try anyway. Who knows, I may learn something Smiley

I was just trying to cover all of the bases, you're questionnaire is A OKAY Smiley
I'll have to add your name in a bit. My first organizer gig isn't going as smoothly as I had planned, I realized I left lots of dumb errors in the questionnaire and completely missed the url part of the swap so the swap isn't linking to everyones profiles so I want to get it fixed first.
Hopefully from here everything will work out much better Smiley
