I can't help but quote what Cynthia emailed me:
Hello, again, Lenna! I've mailed the mail art this a.m. The postman seemed intrigued with the envelopes and asked lots of questions about them. It's like pulling teeth to get much of a reaction out of him, so, I'm taking it as a good sign! Can't wait for them to reach you and be swapped out - it's always such fun (!!!!!) and we sure need some FUN in our lives and for that, I thank you and all the other fun-loving swapettes! Thanks again & enjoy, Cynthia Zdanzukas

I am curious, how did your mail carrier react??
I am waiting for a few more envelopes and postcards to make it into my mailbox by Saturday . . . about 5 more full sets and a few extra envelopes/postcards are still coming. It is very exciting! For people who are new and wonder how I swap the items out, I try to give you something I believe you will love -- or at least appreciate! I do this by looking at what YOU have produced for the swap and what that tells me about you. I think this way is better than random pairing because I always get comments from people along the lines of how much they enjoyed their returns. I usually do the swap on paper first, using a grid system - and then that gives me a "map" to use when physically swapping the pieces so I don't get too confused. Yes, it is a lot of work. But remember, when you registered, your paid me! And I do love hosting swaps, especially with lessons added -it really suits me.
Yes, there will be a NEW swap announced when this one is complete. I am afraid I have not made my mind up yet as to what we'll be swapping, so I may "poll" you asking you to vote your preference. Or you can always email me. I often get wonderful suggestions that get turned into our next creative swap!
Many thanks to Cynthia for a beautiful addition to our mail Art Swap!
