@Terasleen...please don't think like that. That's not what these exchanges are about at all! They're a great opportunity to break away from drill learning and try your hand at design layout and to become a little artsy-fartsy if you feel so inclined. The point is to bust out of your comfort zone, push yourself, try something new, and hopefully make new calli friends. I think I can safely say that no forum member is judgmental regarding skill level. We are here to support one another in our growth. I am only disappointed with an exchange if it is clear that minimal or no effort was made. Mostly, I love exchanges because I am just so happy to get a bunch of awesome mail. :)

Thank you SO much @Starlee ...I think I feel less intimidated now. Thank you so much for the "pep talk".  And you are right...I have only been doing drills and practice, with just a little playing around all by myself and I need a "push" and just go for it! LOL.  And now I will look at this exchange with excitement and as a confidence booster ;D!! Again, Starlee...thank you for your support and the "shove" ;)

I'm so glad to see this exchange back again. (Can't wait for all of the spooky stuff to start appearing).

I did have one question, though. Now that there are different levels will that affect how many people are on a list?

Just wondering as I was trying to get a jump on things.

No problem @Terasleen! I still remember how I felt my first exchange. But these exchanges have been an invaluable part of my calli journey. I couldn't not share because what you said rung true with me too :)

@Terasleen
For a normal exchange, like this - there's normally somewhere between 7 and 9 on a list. 😊 It makes for a lovely variety of mailbox happiness.

Previous participants and senior members. I have not seen many post of Halloween in the past exchanges. Can someone post them on this link for first time participants like me to see them. Im sure there are lot of others who would like to know what exactly happens. I have already read the thread @Erica McPhee had posted on' Signed up for exchange now what'? Its always good to see actual stuff and would be a great inspiration.

Thanks,
- Ashok

Rather than post them in this thread, I'll start two threads in completed/past exchanges so they can be easily found in the future.
It can be a little difficult to find the exact exchange you're looking for in the more general thread "Share a Photo of your exchange" so we'll try this.
Remember to erase/obscure part of any address if you post an envelope.

Here are the threads:

Hello! I am in.... do I get a list? I signed up on the signup page at least I thought that's what it was.... Perhaps I signed up for free ice cream? Not so lucky.... Looking forward to a good time!
