Showers Bring Flowers 2018 Exchange Sign Ups are now Closed!
« on: April 07, 2018, 10:15:41 AM »
[SIGN UPS ARE NOW CLOSED.]

April showers bring May flowers. And can you believe it is already April and it's still snowing in many parts of the US?!

I can already tell this is going to be a beautiful exchange! Everything flowers, or showers if you prefer, - or a bit of both.

PostMark Deadline: Wednesday, May 16, 2018

You MUST use the sign up link to sign up. PLEASE check your email to be sure you receive a confirmation email. If you do not see it, check your spam folder. Check your address to be sure it is correct.

You must be a registered, activate member and have made at least one post, introductory or otherwise, in order to participate. Come on - don't be shy - we love new posts! All it takes is one.

Please note, with smaller sign ups, I have been breaking the list into an even mix of all skill levels. So please expect a variety of skill in the exchanges you receive. This also keeps the lists varied.

PLEASE SHOW SOME EFFORT IN YOUR EXCHANGES! This is a fun way to share your calligraphy and receive calligraphy from others. Please do not sign up if you can't give it your best effort as it is unfair to those who work very hard on their exchange.

As always, the following guidelines apply:

1. Although the cards do not have to be individually handmade, some kind of calligraphy should be used.
2. You will send a card to every member on your list (typically 7-9 members).
3. Must be related to the theme.
4. All skill levels welcome!
5. If you end up not being able to participate, please contact me ASAP. If you don't send your cards after the list has gone out, you will not be able to participate in the next exchange.
6. You must sign up before the deadline. No late sign ups.
7. You may want to take a photograph of your finished envelopes prior to mailing.
8. HAVE FUN!

Re taking pictures of "finished envelopes before sending". I wonder the reason?  Does aenvelope need to be artistic? And looking at cost will some be mailed outside the USA? 
Thanks

Hi Jean,
The pictures are suggested in case an envelope goes missing and then you can trouble shoot to see what may have happened. The envelopes are usually done in calligraphy. There are typically 8 members on the list and 2-4 are in another country depending upon who signs up.  ;D
