Hello, dear list 4 members!

Hope you like stamps, and you don't mind the Spanish king, because you have quite of him on the envelope  ;)

They come in quite a few colors, don't they?
Mine for list 4 are also on the way as well, though the international ones do take a while to arrive, as you know.
I've received one--Sally's--and it's beautiful.

Yes! There are stamps for 0,01€, 0,02€, 0,03€,0,04€,0,05€, 0,10€... and so on, all of them different colors. I think the actual cost of manufacturing stamps is higher than their value. But they are useful when you have old stamps and need to add a few cents for the new price  ;)

Yay, can't wait! I've sent off mine today as well - hope they make way their way to you all soon. Thank you to @Sally Ellington -- your beautiful work already arrived!

Hello List 4! I'm sorry I was so late sending mine out. I sent them on Thursday, 5/24 so I'm hoping you should receive them this week. Again, sorry they're late but I hope the stamps and florals can make up for it!  :D  Thank you @Sally Ellington  @AnasaziWrites  @chisato  for your beautiful mail!

I'm so sorry guys - I mailed mine and today I received them all back in my mailbox.   I am redoing the envelopes and will re-mail them out tomorrow.   I guess my return address was seen as the mail to address.

@sheila247 , I'm so sorry. That has happened to me before, too, but only with one envelope. That must have been disappointing to see them all sitting in your mailbox.

This is the first time this has ever happened to me.  It really bummed me out.

The PO reads from the bottom up, regardless of side, and assumes the lowest address is the "to" address. Was your return address lower than your "to" address?

I tried something different and wrote across the flap due to placement of watercolor.  I think it was because it was close to the same size and same location as the front address.  I won’t do that again

That is such a bummer. My PO is getting more and more strict about that, too. I know they are machine read for the most part but she has even turned me away at the counter before.  :-\

Oh! Do not worry! I will be happy if you just send the original envelope inside a plain one with no calligraphy nor decorations! Do not need to re do mine and double the work!

I redid all of the envelopes, and they went out this past Saturday.  I added a few design elements to make up for the delay.   Thanks for your patience.
