Some of the themes are sent in from you guys. Thank you so much! Credit goes to you. ;)

A big thank you to everyone who has kept this series going, since the beginning when we started with Mail Art May I have had so much fun and my mail art has got better & better by each month. I only hope the same goes for you. :)

You are more than welcome to join this swap if you have never participated before, or if you have never done mail art before.

For this swap you will have 5 partners & a month to send to all of them. The idea is that you send to each partner throughout the month, not all at once, or at the last minute. PLEASE don't join this swap if you can't do this. Send to all of your partners gradually through the month. Bare in mind international partners!

Below for you are some themes for each envie. Please choose at least 3 themes to use given on each envie. You don't have to use all of them but TRY!! ;) if you super creative then go for it! I'd love to see everyone trying to use as many as they can :)

Combined themes do not count as 2. For example using an "orange stripe" for orange and stripe, doesn't count as 2 from the list. That could be either a stripe, or orange. No cheating. ;)

Please don't sticker slap, write a quote on a plain envie & call it done, or send a pre-made decorated envie from the store. It's called mail art for a reason! Anything goes as long as it fits at least 3 themes somehow and you get creative.

Next month we are 4 themes. Oh, please let me know if you'd like Mail Art November to be normal or christmas. We could have both versions. Just let me know below, please!!

Include at least a note inside for your partner explaining themes you used. Surprises/extras are up to sender. Perhaps let us know what you have planned for October.

For partner 1: October (something that represents october or an october motif or rubber stamp the word "october"), yellow, cats, flower, grey, clocks/time.

For partner 2: See-through "peep" window into the contents (can be done by making a cut out square on the envie & covering it with sellotape, or a clear envie with most of it covered leaving only a window), airmail, orange, chevron, ships/boats, pumpkin.

For partner 3: Halloween, purple, rubber stamp, comic strip/square, brown, numbers

For partner 4: Motif/theme of where you live (e.g, a cut out from a postcard, the name of your city stamped on the envie, something famous on the envie), mushrooms, fish, Witches & Bats, blue, vintage

For partner 5: Fall (leaves/brown/oranges/autumnal), Maps, polka dots, circus, red, polka dots
