Not getting to see the exchange pieces people are raving about makes me feel like I'm seven years old and somebody's chained me to my bed on Christmas morning.

Don't feel bad--I suspect most of the members of this exchange have not finished making their entries yet, as the deadline to post is June 23, and most people wait until close to the deadline to mail them. After the deadline plus a week or two so everyone has received theirs, the results will be posted (hopefully), although less than half the people in the "Mimic a Master" exchange published their submissions (unfortunately).

That's helpful to know.  Thanks.

Of course, seven-year-old me still wants to see everything right now, but he'll have to learn to wait.  Perhaps I'll learn some offhand flourishing in the meantime.

Received my second submission to the Offhand flourish exchange. I'm so happy to be in this exchange.
 @Phyllis:  Your use of color is unparalleled--luscious, gorgeous. Beautiful lettering, design super coordinated with the stamps, really, really like it. I'm going to have to put some serious effort into my response to justify getting something so pretty. Thank you.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the exchanges. Many mind-boggling ones I'm sure.

Yes, this is exchange is still very much in the active phase so we will wait until after close to post pics so as not to ruin the surprise for all. Something to look forward to!  ;D

I agree with Andrew and Matthew. Hard to wait.....
But, I guess I'll just have to.

Please to all you flourishers out there, once enough time has pasted after the deadline, we'd love to see pictures posted  ;D

Michael, I'm privileged to personally see some of your handy work. Can't wait to see your flourishing.  :)

I have only just today finished the design into something I'm pleased with (and I'm sure I'll be ashamed of it as soon as I receive the first one from someone else ;D). I'm so glad I'm not the only one using all the available time! The goal is to make the final versions this weekend and mail them on Monday or Tuesday.

Well, flourishing is not my strong suit, so don't expect too much on this one. I've finished the envelopes (acceptable), and the inclusions for the international recipients (6), and hope to finish the domestic ones in the next day or two. As some of these are going to Singapore (delivery time usually 3 weeks) and New Zealand, I'll guess it will be several weeks until mine are posted. I've already received a couple that are vastly superior to my efforts. Very inspiring. And humbling.

@Phyllis--Your first card was lovely, the second even better. Again, beautiful use of color, excellent writing, and great quote. What a delight. Definitely made my day. Thank you so much. Oh, and for some lucky reason, your envelope escaped cancellation--absolutely unmarked.
All mine went out June 19, so I'm hoping you will receive it this week.

where can I see some of the finished cards? Would love to be a part of an exchange like this once I have a little more experience.

As the deadline for sending entries to this exchange is today, you will probably see examples posted either here in a week or two, or in a separate thread, if Erica creates one, wherein the entries can be posted so as not to spoil the surprise for those who have not yet received theirs. Stay tuned to this section., Sharing and Caring.

I received 2 GORGEOUS cards today : thank you Felicia and Phyllis, your chefs d'oeuvre are joining Schin's tiger on my inspiration wall !
You have set the bar so high, I'm afraid to send my very poorly executed flourishes... I was almost finished, but have another idea I'd like to explore. So I'm going to be a little late this time, sorry list 2  :-X
If all goes well, all my envelopes will be sent by friday.
