    This year I am cutting down on the number of paint pals to just two for the year.
    I plan on kicking off the first sign up mid March giving out names on the fools day April 1. Like the last one I will give two months to paint and mailing date of June 1.
    While we still had a few now send or at least they have never showed up as of yet. The art work produced was over the top being no one should have felt rushed painting it. Of course we will always have those last minute folks but such is life.
    The second one will be September sign up with a December 1 mail by date.
    So mainly I would like your thoughts on the 2 month paint time or do you all like the one month better.
    Please let me know your thoughts on this as this is a forum function.

    Personally, I like the one month better. Only because two months gives me more time to forget lol

    I really dont care either way as long as we keep doing it! Plain and simple!

    1 month to paint or two ... hmmm...
    if I wasn’t working full time a month would be fine, but trying to get a paint pal done on 3 weekends isn’t always easy when family visit and there’s chores to be done. Sure, I could be super organised and get one or two done during the year before paint pals are due but what would be the fun in that lol

    I’m good either way, the 2 months gives a little more time if life gets in the way. But 1 month is obviously doable too.

    Two months is good. So you have enough reaction time to find an idea. Although I usually deliver at the last minute.:D

    Two months seems fine, but the second one with a delivery date of Dec. 1st should be moved back a month. I was just thinking about the busy Christmas mail....

    Seems like most like the two month paint time but for those who just want to do it in a month and get it sent you can . I have sent some of mine out on the day after I give the names out just because when I have little paint time I paint up paint pal sized things.
    But sometimes I have nothing that calls to me for the person I am painting for then I will paint up a new one and sometimes include an older one with it.
