It’s just about that time of year: time to break out the sweaters, boots, knit hats and best of all - autumn decoration.

For this swap we will decorate in the autumn theme one envelope no smaller than 4x4inches, pre-made or from cardstock. Feel free to use whatever media you’re comfortable with (gelli prints, stamps, doodles, watercolor, etc). If you’re using preprinted cardstock, make sure you’re not simply depending on the cardstock’s imagery - spice it up with stencils, washi, etc. Include a letter about your favorite part of autumn/fall and maybe your favorite tradition or even an unofficial tradition that still makes you smile (your first pumpkin spice latte of the season perhaps).

If you receive the above, rate a 5.

Feel free to include autumn related/colored goodies (perhaps an additional autumn envie for your partner’s later use), but they’re totally optional. :)

I will angel, but this is such a fun swap, I doubt any of you fine swappers will even think about bailing. But there it is, just in case.

Thank you for hosting this swap. I don't host many Decorated envie only swaps, so this is a great option for our group.

My pleasure @wolfeagle I had such a blast with the recent mail swaps and hoped others felt the same. :)

^^ that should read ‘mail [art] swaps’.

So the decorated envelope is the one WITH the letter in it? As in, I'm not sending an envelope for them to use in future? (Unless I want to, but for swap requirements...)

Sorry I’m totally dumb apparently and can’t read my own challenge. Yes, include a short letter in the decorated envelope. If you want to send an additional envelope for their use, that’s totally optional.

If anybody read my previous comment about not sending a letter, and sent one without, please forgive them as it was my fault for not explaining correctly in the comments. As long as their name and the swap name is listed somewhere, give them a 5, pretty please.
