Summer (or Winter if you live way south) Exchange
« on: May 27, 2014, 07:13:11 PM »
Hi all!
   I'm new to this so maybe I'm not looking in the right place...but is there a Summer (for us Northern Hemisphere artists) exchange happening or any exchanges happening right now? I'd love to send and receive some snail mail, my mailbox has been going through a drought.  ;)

 8) Southern hemisphere represent!  8) I love it when you guys remember we exist :)

There's no official Flourish Forum Summer Exchange just yet - I think that we are probably waiting for the Spring one to wrap up.  But there's a pen pals thread, and I bet there'll be an exchange soon :D

I'd like to practise my writing and exchange mail. I'm located near the Equator. :D

Sue and Valerie, count me in! Let me just wait for the people to get the first batch of snail mail I sent to make sure that the post office here is reliable. But let's not consider this as a summer exchange just yet because that's up to our forum's leader! :) We can just consider this as a pen pal exchange  ;D

Already sent one to Ate Moya a few days ago!  :-*

I love all the snail mail! Yes, we are just wrapping up our spring exchange and will be doing a summer one soon.

Anyone can start an exchange if they would like, they just have to be willing to organize the participants and send the list, etc.

I will be coordinating a summer exchange probably within the next two weeks (mid-June). Wow - that is crazy! Where is the year going?!

Yeah, I can't wait. I didn't get to get in on the last one. I feel like I am in junior high; excited to write my pen pal's I met at church camp!
