View Full Version : Dear Mr. Postman ~PIF~

11-02-2007, 06:33 PM
We all LOVE to get mail
We all LOVE to get little packages in the mail.
We LOVE the Postman!


*I’ve created the “Dear Mr. Postman” PIF*

Here’s how it works:

Send a small gift to the artist below you.
Please send it within a week.
You can only add your name AFTER your last gift was sent.
Add your name as often as you want.:)

What to send….New or Handmade items....

Art Supplies
Handmade Envies
Office supplies
Rubber stamp
Unused Postcards
Unused Greeting Cards
Little flashlight
Deck of Cards
Goofy Band-Aids
A new toothbrush
Ect. Ect. Ect.

Send 1 giftie...or...Feel free to send 3 or 4 little things

The amount of money you spend is irrelevant.
But….I would think a $ 1.00 to $ 5.00 range would be about right.

Christmas is coming and that means unwanted gifts or duplicates.
These items would be perfect…
send them to someone who would appreciate them.

Not to say…
UNLOAD your unwanted gifts here!

I recently received a DVD from my brother.
I already have it….its a very good movie.
I can’t ask for the receipt…that would be in bad taste.
So I gave it to the library.

*Not sure what to send???*
Check out the profile of the artist below you.
Check out the art they’ve created.
These may give you some insight.

P.S. You may NOT get something you want every time.
BUT….that’s not the point of doing this.

I do ask that you send things you yourself would enjoy receiving.

Ready to play???*
Write in the comment box:

Then the person above you will send you a little something in the mail.
~~~just remember when you write those 3 magic words you will be sending to the next person who yells “DEAR MR. POSTMAN”

Remember...this is a gift so send it jazzed up, or drawn on envies ( we have alot of mail art lovers out there), with a gift tag...ect.
Something creative would be nice.

Please respond by clicking on " reply with quote " to the person you will be sending too.
Also....please pm each other for addies,thank you's ect.

+++++Dear Mr Postman+++++
Like that?
Who do I get to send to?
umm, by your rules, I'm not supposed to add my name to a list until after I've sent my gift, to the name UNDER mine? You mean, before mine? Like you?
if so, then there'll be a gift coming your way shortly.

Send your gift as soon as someone say those 3 words.

You can't ADD your name again to the list UNTILL you have sent the last gift you promised.
Like....now I will send you something...as soon as it goes into the mail THAN I could add my name here again
if so, then there'll be a gift coming your way shortly.


You will send to the next person who says....Dear Mr. Postman

11-02-2007, 07:45 PM
Sorry for any confusion....

We will be working this out as we go....so feel free to pm me or write in here with questions!

I'm sure before long it will have the bugs worked out.

thanks WhiteMoth, I got my fun package in the mail last week. Things have been hitting the fan, if you get my drift...
What a fun package! Homemade decorated _stamped_ envelopes!, bonus papers, and envies, AND an ATC! thanks so much.. you are quite the treasure!
I'm off to leave a point in your favor.. and this is a fun game! I hope it'll revive; maybe after the holidays, in the doldrums of winter???

11-15-2007, 06:12 PM
Emma...just wanted you to know I haven't forgotten your little package! I had an out of town emergency, so I will mail it tomorrow!

I too hope that this takes off after the busy holiday season!

11-15-2007, 06:20 PM
Thanks to everyone for playing and the support of the Postman game!

11-15-2007, 10:36 PM
I am counting on the game to revive.
I have some cool things I could send out. I'll start putting together a little package so I am ready when it does.
After the holidays works for me.

11-16-2007, 03:08 AM
I too think is a GREAT trade thread, and can't wait to participate soon!

11-16-2007, 09:23 PM
~Dear Mr. (Mz.? Mrs.? Miss?) Postperson~

Dear Mr Postman

11-17-2007, 05:37 AM
Oh oh.. looks like I'm busy again..

12-01-2007, 12:51 AM
I sent my package off to Altermyworld several days ago.. has it found its new home yet?

oh! and abi, did you forget me?

12-01-2007, 11:26 PM
no, meran I could never forget you. The broncitus and the laryngitis really had me under for a while I will get your delivery on it's way first thing Monday morning with my most sincere, deepest apologies ;)

12-02-2007, 01:02 AM
Oh No!!! Take your time. If I'm not forgotten, that's all anyone can ask for in this world :D
no hurries, no worries
I forgot that you'd been sick, bad me. I'm so sorry. Are you feeling better? much? are you your regular saucy self?

12-03-2007, 02:30 AM
I would say I am 90% of my regular self, getting motivated after having approx 2 weeks of being sick and lazy is a whole other problem! So goes life....

12-03-2007, 05:00 PM
lazy? when you're sick abi, it's called HEALING. sleep, lay about, rest. Mind busy, yes, but body off.
Are you better today?

12-03-2007, 09:26 PM
much, much better, almost completely myself! Just trying to remember to get enough sleep and eat well and all that jazz to avoid a relapse :)

And back to this thread that I seemingly hijacked.... I believe altermyworld is the one up for sending something out next...
