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.*

Jan                         Big Swap

Feb                         Quick Swap (Theme: Details)

March                   Brown Paper Bag (Monochrome)

April                       Big Swap

May                       “Send, Receive or both” Swap*

June                       Quick Swap (Theme: Flora & Fauna= Plants and Animals)

I hope that some “fresh air” will do paper swap good. But what we need the most is new players.

November: Postcard Swap & regular paper swap

Hi everyone, welcome to the postcard project in November!

I hope you all have come safe through floods and storms and fires. (what a year!)

This is how it works:
Take a blank cardboard or a piece of paper in a postcardsize (at least 10x15 cm) and create some kind of artwork on it. It can be anything you like, a drawing, a collage, a painting, printing, mixed media art etc..Anything that can be send out later. (Very much like an ATC)

No topic this time, just play free :)

You can make as many postcards as you like and can send them to more than one person. Of course you also can only make one. But maybe you will have a creative flow, once you have started.

 Please sign in via e-mail:
Any questions? Just let me know!

Please also sign in for the normal paper swap in November!

Happy arting, as always, FM

August Paper Swap and the Brown Paper Bag "Blue Edition"

This month we have another quick swap again. So please sign in soon, if you would like to be in it.

And another brown paper bag will travel round the world.
After the first bag has been so much fun for everyone, the next one hopefully will bring as much joy as the last one.
This time it’s all around the colour BLUE.


How to: I will send the bag out on August, 1st. If you want to be in the game, please sign in soon. I only need your mailing adress. 

When it arrives on your doorstep, take the bag and browse thru. Choose items you want to keep (up to 20) and put the same amount of items back in again. Must be paper and blue colour tones. (Please don’t put in more, because it then will be heavier and shipping costs will rise.) Use the paper items for whatever you like, maybe share it with us. (Send me a link to your blog/website)

Put everything back into the bag and send it on to the next adress on the list (which will be included). It would be nice to let the next one know (via e-mail), that the sending is on the way.

Sign in now at

Start: August, 1st. You can also invite friends to participate. Everybody is welcome.

Happy blue hours!
