send the following info to jmwilson411 [at] yahoo [dot] com
please follow the format exactly (i will be reporting on how many people can send me the info, exactly as i wish it to appear - and also explain why i am being so nit-picky about this detail)

your street address
your city, state, postal code
your country
your email address

EXAMPLE for you to follow:

Mickey Mouse
1234 Disney Avenue

see...that should be easy...5 extra spaces between lines
non-USA participants, please put your info in the format that is best for your country

you will receive a list of 4-6 people
please get your envelopes mailed by august 31st
there may be one address on your list that will be outside the USA
and the envelope to non-USA addresses requires  $1.15 in postage
if you cannot afford one foreign address, please do not sign up for the exchange

your name will be on the list
you decide if you want to send an envelope to yourself
some people like a record of what they sent -or like to do a practice envelope.

no theme
any medium is fine
digital is fine
we only require that there is something creative about the way you address the envelope
please make the address fairly legible
the envelope may be empty, if so, write *empty* on the back of the envelope
enclosures are optional, if included, write *open* on the back

any questions - email me

we welcome and encourage beginners
there is no critiquing of quality
it's all about the fun of receiving mail

on a tab at the top of the blog you may read the full set of *rules* regarding exchanges.
if you are new to the exchange, please review the rules as they include requests about not posting addresses online and how to handle missing mail

  1. Jean...on the long list of things I'm sure you have to do today, I'm glad you put the exchange at the top of the list. Thanks!

    1. You are very welcome. I am happy to have the exchanges back. Yes the to-do list. Mine says *Things that might not get done today*
      I also have a bankers box that is labeled *Maybe Never* - all the projects I would love to do - but realistically, I can't imagine I will ever get around to them.
