View Full Version : LIST: Waiting list for moleskine groups

07-31-2010, 02:21 AM
Having just finished my first moleskine group, which I enjoyed immensely I know I would be happy to do another. I don't have the necessary experience to start a group, otherwise I would.

Moleskine exchanges are a long commitment, so do consider carefully whether you really are sure you can commit before signing up. That said, they are also a wonderful journey.

Please read the Book Journal guidelines provided by Rkolig carefully, they are very important.

It is difficult to 'catch' an open group, often it's about folks getting together who know each other and know you are willing.

This waiting list is for posting that you are interested in joining a group.
Information you can add:
Whether you already have a theme idea, this would let others know what they might be letting themselves in for!
Whether you are willing to post international, as this can be expensive.
Whether you are ready now, or need some space before you could begin.

As this is a List Thread, one post only, please. This makes it easier to read and keep track of. You can edit your post to change your information at any time.

Excess chatter will be removed.

I'll start us off:

1. My theme ideas (there are two since the first may not be acceptable to some)
- Naked women
- Dalmatian dogs
2. I can mail international
3. I would prefer to start after September this year

UPDATE - In Group 9 starting mailing Nov 2010

08-01-2010, 07:22 PM
I would love to join in on a moleskine group! Add me to this waiting list.
1. My theme is abstract or anything blue.
2. I can also mail international
3. I can start when a group is ready.

08-04-2010, 01:09 PM
1. My theme would be either ROYGBIV (rainbow) or Peacocks
2. I'm willing to mail International
3. I'm available to start anytime (at the moment)

09-08-2010, 09:18 AM
I`d love love to be part of a moley exchange!

1. My theme would be whimsy landscapes, found poetry or women (handdrawn/painted/mixed media if possible)
2. Of course international since I`m in Europe ;-)
3. I can start any time

Please consider me for your next moley exchange. That would make me happy. Thank you. :)

10-13-2010, 08:22 PM
I'd like to be listed as well. I've got a moley but haven't been able to catch an open group.

Theme? Nothing carved in stone but have a few ideas: Sailing ships, Travel, music, or artist's choice - but with a unifying color scheme. Or something else entirely depending on what the groups up for.

International? Yes, tentatively. I could mail overseas for a few rounds, but probably couldn't afford to do it everytime. So if the travel plan had me sending to the same person everytime, I'd prefer if they were in the USA.

Time? Can start anytime.

11-04-2010, 03:59 PM
I'm interested in joining a group - start date anytime - ordered my moley and it's on the way.

Sidewalk Scenes; Underwater Worlds; Art inspired by Quotations; Found Poetry

I can do a few international mailings

04-05-2011, 05:50 PM
Just like to put it out there I'm interested in joining another moley group....Open Theme...no problem shipping international....pick me pick me...if anyone is thinking of starting up another one.

08-01-2011, 07:47 PM
I'd love to join a group if you guys are starting any.

08-01-2011, 09:33 PM
I'd do an all watercolor moleskeine group in a minute...but I am not a hosting type!

08-18-2011, 07:35 PM
you can sign me up for who ever holds the next moley group

09-19-2011, 09:31 PM
I am certainly interested and will keep an eye out for the next group to begin. I'm not interested in hosting one, but I would love to participate. Of course I will mail anywhere. I'd choose my theme at that time. Who knows what inspiration will hit when?

09-27-2011, 08:31 PM
1. Fibonacci Sequence/Golden Mean
2. International mailings, yes
3. November 1, 2011

11-15-2011, 05:35 AM
absolutely dying to do this!

theme TBA, yes to international (I'm in the UK), anytime after Christmas 2011.

11-15-2011, 11:32 AM
I would also love to be involved
I am also UK so yes to international.
Theme pretty open (but not cute) - however I do like medieval stuff (books of hours), the idea of Janus (looking 2 ways, past future, light dark whatever); labyrinths and mazes.
Dec 1st onwards...
Fingers crossed!!!

07-26-2012, 10:20 PM
I would love to do a moley here again. Did one at Illatcs and am currently in another one as well and the art is lovely but the comradery is lacking... I miss the chatty and life-enriching groups that I was in here. Seriously.

Could I please be added to the wait list? I would love to do this but just keep missing the sign up ship. Thanks! Looking forward to the fun!

03-27-2013, 03:17 PM
Yep, I will wait in line like the rest of us.

04-10-2013, 06:18 PM
Just finished my first group and would love to go again.
Thinking of themes.
Can do overseas mailings.
Not host-worthy yet.

09-11-2013, 05:34 PM
I like to join a moleskine journal swap with seperate pages ( and not sending the entire book around) is there one and who can tell me about t. Or: is there anyone who will do with me a two pages journal trade? Please let me know.

02-19-2014, 01:51 PM
I'm interested in a new Moley group! I'd host but i don't have the credentials!

05-30-2014, 02:25 AM
I'm always interested...love to participate in any of them.

01-30-2015, 05:26 PM
I just wanna add my name to this list, I'm happy to create anything that's going, I love, love moleskin's. Pm any one who is doing the next swap, I'm very keen.

04-03-2015, 12:20 AM

2. I can ship internationally.
3. I could start any time, but I would prefer to start after May.

I did one of these last year. It was a lot of fun. I'd be interested in joining another group. Hit me up if your hosting one. :) Any theme and International are both fine.

08-23-2015, 03:46 PM
Would love to be in group.

Love all kinds of art and style.

bookmarking this thread so I can catch an open group...

Theme ideas:
- what animals get up to when no one is watching
- a circus (not necessarily the regular kind)
- quirky/funny tourist photos/postcards around the world/galaxy
- musical medley (songs illustrated)
- Dr Who adventures
- any open to any other theme

I prefer HD/HP, but am open to mixed-media
I can mail internationally
I can start anytime

09-04-2016, 10:34 PM
I see no one has posted here for several months but I would love to be a part of a moley. I have been involved in other kinds of swaps similar to this and would like to be a part of a moley. If a #25 group starts up please consider me for the group. I would consider doing international swap.

10-26-2016, 01:15 AM
Just finished my first one and loved it! I'd love to do another :)

03-27-2017, 10:54 AM
I would love to join in another art journal or moley swap this year. Just finished with group #22.

08-11-2017, 08:49 PM
I am very interested in a moley.

09-26-2017, 08:18 PM
I would love to join a moley group

06-28-2018, 05:02 AM
I would love to join a moley

09-18-2018, 05:17 PM
Hello! I'd love to be added to the list, I really want to do this! Can the molly be handmade?

Theme: Whimsical, colorful, cute, fantasy, nudes, monsters, gory, horror, creepy, emotional, girls, chubby girls
Willing to mail internationally!
Ready now! Can't wait actually!

01-31-2019, 09:44 PM
I would love to join in on a moleskine group! Add me to this waiting list. I've been away for a bit, but I'm bag in full swing now!
1. I would be happy with any themes; my favorite medium is collage.
2. I can also mail international
3. I can start when a group is ready and I qualify. I'm not a possible host until April 2019.

02-11-2019, 03:26 PM
While I'm waiting, can someone please give me a little more information about the requirements? I know that a moleskine journal is required for the swap, but I can't find any other details:

* How many pages should the journal have?
* Does the binding need to have that soft, leathery feel, or can it be cahiers, hardback, or other?
* Are there any rules about the pages and whether they should be dotted, ruled, or unruled?
* How big should the journal be; 8.5 x 11, 5.5 X 8.25, 3.5 x 5.5...?

02-11-2019, 04:56 PM
Look for moleskin Japanese fold....thirty pages unfoldef each page 5.5 tall by 3.5 wide. I usually buy mine on eBay.

02-11-2019, 04:56 PM
Your last size was right 3.5 by 5.5

11-15-2019, 05:05 PM
I am very interested in participating in a Moley Swap.

12-24-2019, 09:57 PM
Just checked back here and realized I didn’t give very much information. I have several theme possibilities I would be choosing from: “Elegant Afternoon Tea”; “Fairy Dwellings”; “Inside the Garden Gate”; “Little Red Schoolhouse”. I could mail internationally and could begin anytime.

08-17-2020, 07:43 AM
I am always interested in joining another moley swap - not really in the 'market' to host another one after having done so in 2014, 2016 and 2019. Would like to be a player for a change... Prefer HD/HP art but an occasional collage of good quality will be appreciated too. Themes a plenty - will come up with one as soon as there is a group I can join. Being in the Netherlands it is rather obvious that I will send International :).

08-18-2020, 09:15 AM
I would love to do any Moley swap, but have only participated in collage groups before.

08-26-2020, 10:08 AM
So, I am interested in this but crazy intimidated. My hd/hp skills are limited (I am working on it) and I would hate to jack up someone's journal. Let me let it simmer and come back.

TLDR: Lurking.

01-21-2023, 07:06 PM
Maybe 2023 is a good year for a new moley swap? Anyone interested? Just drop a line here (and PM me) to see if we can get a group together...

01-21-2023, 07:46 PM
Nicky, check out the thread “Moley Swap Interest?” Under Art Discussions. It was started by Wildholly last September. I would definitely be interested.
