Hello List 2!

I am late in starting this one - I had a flurry of work come in, and have had no brain for creativity. I will be getting on it this weekend!

Apologies to all.

Yay! Phew!

That's how scrambled my brain's been, dates have ceased to be a reliable concept for me.

Thank you :)

I just sent my exchanges out to list 4. (fingers crossed). There was a certain learning curve about the "priority mail" system on my side...  ::) Hopefully everything makes it in tact. I can't wait to see what everyone else created!

Thanks all!

WOW. Terrific  (mine arrived today)

List 4, you are in for a big treat. I won't say any more than that  (except to you, Gibby) at this time.

Hi all, anyone from List 8 receive their letters for this exchange? I have @AnasaziWrites Michael's (I have yet to open it), but am still waiting for letters from Sara @Sarasal and @Rapi . I know international mail takes longer, but it's been about a month. I hope you guys received mine.

It would be a real shame if these got lost in the mail. I know how much time I spent on my map illustration, so I hope that's not the case.


@Gibby I hope you'll share your exchange letter at some point. I remember your fabulous Halloween exchange. No doubt this would be of the same mind-blowing caliber!

Hi @Erica McPhee

Looks like an interesting exchange programme. I'm quite interested, and had few queries.
- Is it envelope exchange or something else?
- Am I eligible to participate?
- Is it already too late now?
- How often does this happen?

Thanks,
Ashok

@handmadeletters
Your letter of the 29th ult. at hand.

It is my great pleasure to have received such a beautiful envelope, letter, and enclosure. Your enclosure would be welcomed by any master cartographer of the 19th century, your letter and envelope the envy of a master scribe of any era. Thank you most heartily.

Yours is the only one I have received from list 8 as well. When/if I receive the others, it would be my pleasure to publish yours and the others on this forum for all to enjoy.

Please feel free to open mine at your convenience, and please excuse the ham-handed effort at this script, as the script is new to me and the result of only a few hours of practice with it. There were about 30 iterations of the enclosure until I arrived at the final one (which is slightly better than the one I sent to you. Yours was about number 25). I spent more time on this exchange than any other by a wide margin, though it certainly does not show in the results. I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Allow me to respond.
This is an envelope exchange, one of four or so "expert" exchanges per year (expert here means a little more effort is required and/or the topic may or may not be a little more challenging).
All forum members in good standing (including you) are eligible to participate regardless of skill level.
Yes, for this exchange, it is too late. The deadline for sending replies was June 29.
There are 10 or so exchanges per year. Read all about how they work in the Sharing and Caring section of the forum here

I am still working on mine!  :-[  The box I diligently prepared with all my pens and nibs was carefully put somewhere during the move ... and now I can't find it!  :o But my studio is in shambles so I know it will turn up. It's the last room to be unpacked (naturally) but it's on the agenda for this weekend. I have one pen and one nib so I'm working on a draft right now and will hopefully finish it soon! So, so sorry. I'm in the weeds.  :(

@handmadeletters Aww thanks! I can't wait to see what everyone created. I had thought about posting a pic of mine, but since I haven't gotten any envelopes yet from my list I was a bit worried to put anything up that might be a spoiler. (Then, of course, I realized I had neglected to take any final photos of my exchange making the entire thought kinda moot anyway oops)

It sounds like there are a lot of maps still in progress or still in the postal system. I'm glad to hear they're still on the way. I was getting a little worried about the inherent irony of all those maps getting lost. ;D

@AnasaziWrites Michael, thanks for the kind words! I'm glad to hear the letter safely made it to you.

I usually wait to open exchange letters all together, but on your urging, I went ahead and opened yours. I truly enjoyed it--the tiny lettering with the occasional gold highlights, the illustrative details, and the presentation with the seal and string! I can't imagine you produced this 30 times, a labor of love, no doubt! Thank you, I appreciate your effort and dedication to this exchange!

I do hope after some time to avoid spoilers, people will post their work. I thought this exchange was really fun, and it would be great to see all the real and imaginary maps people chose. @Gibby Ha, I love that line about the irony of maps getting lost! ;D

I so often put things in very safe places that I can't even find them ;D Hope you get settled soon so you can start enjoying your home. :)
