Holiday break

As for the next three month: I will take a break. So unlike in the list of swaps for 2018 announced, there will be no swaps in June, July and August this year.
I apologize for any inconvinience this might cause.

Our next swap is on September, 1st.

Here are the swaps for 2018:

Sept                 Artful Snail Mail (Letter: “A day in my life”)

Oct                  Big Swap

Nov                 Quick Swap (Theme: Words and numbers)

Dec                 Postcard Swap (Theme: Winter cosiness)

The brown paper bag is on its way round the world, moving on through the USA now, before it will fly back to Europe. 

Have a lovely spring & summer time!

The brown paper bag blue edition is back!

Hello to all you “blue ladies” all over the world!

This was a really lovely experience: The blue edition of the brown paper bag has now made its way back to me. From Germany to France, the UK, the USA, Canada and Argentina and then back to Germany again.
So great the thought that it really made it without lost and brought joy to those who played along. Thank you all for doing such a great job! Your handwritten greetings on the address list really touched me!

This was what I’ve sent in August 2017:


This was what I got yesterday:

Blue things returning
back to me

Only 3 pieces of blue which I originally have put in returned!

I have now chosen 15 pieces for myself to keep and decided to make a small “lottery” out of the rest. So all participants will have a chance to win the whole lot of blue that has made its way round the world. I will let you know who the lucky winner is tomorrow, so stay tuned.

Coming up: Big swap in April

Long time since we had the last really big swap, but now with spring coming, maybe you'd love to browse thru your papers and see what you don't need anymore and what might be fun and/or useful for others to play with.

Big swap means:  using a big (DIN A4)  envelope.
You can send anything you want, as long as it is made of paper. Newcomers are highly welcome.

So if you want to be in, send me an e-mail:
No theme, totally free and fun.

Lots of sunshine to you,

These and more, all in all 100, paper goodies will now fly around the world in a brown paper bag.

The last paper bag must arrive in Argentina every day now (soon I hope) and will then travel back to me.
Thx to all who played along!

Skipping January

Hi everyone!

Just to let you know, that I have decided to cancel the January Swap, because there are only 7 participants and in the USA there is this arctic cold that makes sending things out and receiving mail not easier.

So I hope to hear from you in February.

Wishing you all love, peace and many opportunities for artmaking in 2018,


PS: New players are most welcome, please sign in via e-mail:

Swaps in 2018

There will be some changes in 2018.

We have only 4 big swaps a year now- big swap means: take a big envelope and fill it up. You can exchange what ever you like, as long as it is paper.

We also have 4 quick swaps- which means small letter envelopes and these 4 are theme related. (see list)

We also have 3 art/paper exchange projects, like the Brown Paper Bag, the Artful Snail Mail Letter* Exchange and the Postcard Swap.

And we have a special Swap, where you can decide, if you want to only send, only receive or both. In this special swap you can also exchange with more than one person.*
