Ok, good! We're all here. If it's ok with everyone else, I copied the schedule of mailing dates from the old thread. The only change I made is that in the month in which Lise was your partner, you now have the month "off." Reasons for this include the fact that for February Ria and I have sent pages so it was too late to change the game. Also, I just haven't wrapped my brain around how to juggle the rest of the months yet. If people are comfortable with having a month off, it's easier for me to keep the schedule as is. In your off month you can go join a collage-a-thon or sign up for an extra swap or work on your knitting or get a head start on your page for the next month!

Is this agreeable?

micromummy
02-05-2009, 05:41 PM
Yes that's ok with me and I'm sure it will be with everyone else.

Ria

Thanks, Micromummy. Can you give me a bit more details about what you're after for your theme?

micromummy
02-09-2009, 12:42 PM
Hi LuvLoz, anything that's old in style such as ladies, transport, clothes, hats, furniture etc. I like embelishments and dangly things - ribbons, bows, buttons. Does that help?

Hi Ria, my pages are gorgeous. Thank you soooo much. Can't wait to receive them.
I've finished your page for March so I'll send it. Sorry it's so early but the weather has been really bad here and as I was snowed in for a few days I got on with some art work.
Will let you know when mine arrives - yippee!

Am I last to post again? Probabaly. :eek: Here are my pages for Miromummy.

One page is about a 17th century Italian poem, and the other features vintage advertising. These are the first journal pages I've done that aren't handdrawn, I hope they're okay.

Lily Lemon
02-28-2009, 07:44 PM
They're fabulous!

micromummy

Hi LuvLoz, my pages look fantastic. I can't wait to get them. Thank you so much for doing something you're not used to.

LuvLoz
03-03-2009, 12:35 AM
No problem - it's always fun to try something new, and as you can see - I had all these vintage things just starting to pile up on me. :)

Ria
03-05-2009, 04:03 AM
LuvLoz, I think the pages you made for micromummy were utterly gorgeous, I am so jealous!!!!! LOL

Ria
03-05-2009, 04:05 AM
I have now completed next set of pages for Purple Cat

I am at home with 'flu at the moment ( have also lost my voice - some would say that's a blessing!!!!:chatterbox:), so got on with these pages, I will hopefully put these in the post at the weekend!

purplecat
03-05-2009, 05:49 AM
Ria those pages are gorgeous!!! thanks so much :)

LuvLoz
03-07-2009, 05:09 AM
Thanks for the compliments on the pages ladies. Ria - you're making me look bad, getting you pages out a month ahead of schedule means people are getting your pages before I've even started on them. LOL Still, at least now I can steal your ideas for inspiration. :)

purplecat
03-07-2009, 06:09 AM
Don't worry Luvloz, I haven't done yours yet either!!plan to get them done this week!

Ria
03-10-2009, 03:17 PM
Sorry ladies! I just got bored, hence me completing these early. However I have also completed the last set, these are for Luvloz. I will send these out as soon as I feel well enought to leave the house, as you can tell I haven't posted Purplecat's pages yet. One reason I am also sending out Luvloz's pages is also because I will be closing down my internet shortly. Money has gotten really tight lately and this is one luxury I really cannot afford anymore so at least I will know I have finished up my commitments. I will try to stay online for the next couple of weeks.

The birds are beautiful, Ria! Thank you so much. I'm sorry to hear that you'll be giving up your internet. Maybe you can stay in touch through your local library?

Ria
03-13-2009, 03:01 AM
Hi!

I can use my work computer for a little while to ensure I'm on top of things, but it's only a temporary measure. I will check out the library though!

I received my pages fromRia this morning- they are super- thanks Ria, and all the extra goodies, you are a darling :)

Luvloz, do you want the backs of your pages decorating?

Lily Lemon
03-14-2009, 11:50 PM
Here are Micromummy's pages for next month (since I had this month "off" from the swap. Still need to do the backs....

LuvLoz
03-15-2009, 12:26 AM
Karen - I really like my pages. Backs don't need decorating, but if you have time maybe just a bit of info about you would be nice. Thanks!

Lily Lemon
03-15-2009, 12:26 PM
Ladies, don't forget to check in to the thread once a week. I'm still trying to figure out if we're done with February!:)

micromummy

Hi LuvLoz, thank you so much for my lovely pages, they are gorgeous. My book is looking really good now as I'm in another CJ and chose the same theme.

Yay! Everyone has received for February!

LuvLoz
03-17-2009, 11:00 PM
Kate - that's a great idea. I'm using this group to expand upon the last group I was in, so I'm getting lots of lovely pages to look at now. Plus, it's a nice mix of hand-drawn and collage now too.

Lily Lemon
03-18-2009, 11:23 PM
Micromummy, your pages are done. Did you see them? Did I interpret the theme correctly?

micromummy
03-19-2009, 06:57 PM

If someone has Micromummy's address can you PM me? I'm waiting for her address and if it's possible to get it in time to send her pages on today's trip to the P.O. I'd like to do that to avoid a second trip to P.O. Thanks!

Well, it's the last day of the month, so that means it's time for me to finish the journal pages I'm working on. Yes, if it wasn't for the last minute I would never finish anything. :twitcy: Here are my 'house/home' pages for PurpleCat. I hope you like them.

04-21-2009, 01:37 PM
Ria, your pages are here, and they are wonderful thanks so much, I love the vintage feel :), I am sorry I thought I had said they were here, and I put them safely away, I will go leave i-trader now:embarrassed:
I mailed your pages today, they were dry in time, I am glad you like them, they are better in real life, a scan never seems to show the colours good.

I received my pages fromRia this morning- they are super- thanks Ria, and all the extra goodies, you are a darling :)

Luvloz, do you want the backs of your pages decorating?

Ria I thought I had said when they arrived, :) I thought I was going mad there!
I checked I did leave you i-trader when I received them. All's well then!!

It's my month off now so I've finished.
Thank you everyone for some lovely pages. My book is looking really good as I've used the same theme for three cj's. I'm going to make a cover for it and then I can sit and drool over it and admire everyone's work at my leisure.

06-03-2009, 12:40 AM
I think Ria isn't able to be online anymore. I post earlier (I think) that I received her pages, because she sent them to me a month early. Here is the reverse side of her friendship page, it went in the mail today.

Thanks for a great group, I got the perfect number of pages to finish off my album!
