Precious Pet Exchange 2017!
« on: July 14, 2017, 07:00:39 PM »
I just can't wait until October for another exchange! Who's with me?! I was inspired by the cute new pet stamps at the US Post Office and thought it would be a great theme. So ... announcing the Precious Pet Exchange 2017! Whether it be your ode to your puppy, your ink tracking cat, or your color changing reptile ... let's see some calligraphy about the lovable creature you call your pet!

Sign ups are now closed.


Postmark Deadline: Monday, August 28, 2017

PLEASE, Please, please do NOT sign up for an exchange if you cannot honor your commitment. I know things happen we can't control but it is not fair to those who spend the time to create and mail their exchanges to not receive them back.

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!

Moya, your kitten is SO cute.

Time for me to jump back on the exchange train!  Great idea, Erica!

I made some peculiar 'design' decisions with mine.... I think it's because I'm a lady of a certain age. Yes, I seem to have gone colour blind...as well as simply blind  ;D

@Scarlet Blue That is fairly amazing! I was expecting it to take at least ten days!   :)
