I haven't done an art swap in a longtime so, I am looking for players for an envelope swap. I've done these before and the envelopes we have swapped out are WONDERFUL..too pretty to actually mail..but I have used almost every one I have received. So if you are interested just comment here or send me an email at

Theme: Lets Party!
Due date: Dec.18

Make 6 envelopes, receive 6 back. Envelopes can be no larger than 6" X 9".

You can use any type of paper you would like (I've even made envies out of magazine pages!)

Embellish...but remember some folks like to actually use these so keep in mind that they have to be able to fit through the Post Office sorting machines

Think outside the box! be creative!

Along with your envelopes I just ask that you send a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope for your return envies. Just add the same amount of postage that it cost you to send them to me.

When you send me an email I will send you my address off this blog.

If we keep this due date we should have our envelopes by the holidays!

God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

I've always loved this prayer


The winner of my very first Give away is Marie from SantAngelo Designs, one of my fellow etsians

Congrats Marie!

was a good contrast. The house behind these tubs was being renovated.
