View Full Version : Altered Book Group (from MAW)

04-06-2009, 06:11 PM
Hi everyone,

Here is our thread from MAW (since the site is closing down). This swap is FULL!

Each person will be responsible for choosing a theme and starting their book in some way. If you have altered books from before that are not finished, you might consider sending that around. I might send my doorways and passages book around or my found poetry book around a second time to help fill it up! http://www.mailartworld.com/forum/images/smilies/2/smile.gif

Our book group & mailing order

Eggstudio -> Purplerealm -> Surrealism -> Adriayna -> Lildebi <being skipped> -> Electablue

Book Progress:
*Eggstudio's book --> Purplerealm --> Surrealism
*Purplerealm's book --> Surrealism --> Adriayna--> Electablue --> Eggstudio
*Surrealism's book --> Adriayna --> Crftyscrapper --> Adriayna --> Electablue --> Eggstudio
*Adriayna's book --> Crftyscrapper --> Adriayna --> Electablue-->Eggstudio

Please check in here once you see the new thread so we can keep our book group going. Thanks everyone!

04-06-2009, 09:57 PM
I'm here! Lildebi's book is with Eggstudio and I am bookless.

04-06-2009, 10:42 PM
Thanks for checking in, Lisa! I've updated the thread.

04-07-2009, 08:27 AM
Im here! :D

04-07-2009, 09:54 AM
Tracie, do you still have Electablue's and Eggstudio's books?

04-07-2009, 10:41 AM
I'm here!!~ I have Lildebi's book.

04-07-2009, 08:30 PM
Yes, I still do. Am hoping to complete those over the Easter break and post them on. :D

04-11-2009, 11:28 PM
Ill wait an extra week to mail these two books I have to you then surrealsm, so that they will arrive once you are back and not while you are away.

04-16-2009, 08:28 AM
I've PMed and emailed the other group members. I don't know where they are. I will try PMing and emailing them again.

04-18-2009, 07:10 AM
Ok, so Easter turned into an art free event for me.....drats. :(
Both books are packed away still, so I really need to find which box they are in and get to work on the 2nd book. :twitcy:

04-21-2009, 09:44 AM
We still have not heard from craftyscrapper or lildebi. I've PMed them, emailed them, pmed them again. Any suggestions?

04-21-2009, 10:32 AM
Hi all, my life has been crazy along with my daughter having surgery unexpectedly. I "think" my life is about back to normal. (No longer sick, no more 13 hour extra shifts at work, etc.) So I am hoping to catch up with everything now.

Yes, I still have Surrealism's & Adriayna's books.

04-21-2009, 12:42 PM
I know the last I heard from lildebi she was ready to send me the next book, but that was around the end of March and I don't think she ever sent it.

04-29-2009, 01:31 PM
I'll be mailing Lildebi book to Miss Purple the beginning of next week.

05-02-2009, 03:50 PM
Thanks! I was out of town for 3 days going home hunting in prep for my move. I will be here Monday to get it though :)

05-03-2009, 09:09 PM
Eggs ~ Ill keep my eyes out for it! :D

Surrealsm ~ cant wait to see what you did in there! :D

Ok, I think Ive found the box I packed the books into! YIKES..... Im going to mail off the completed one this week to Surrealsm and work on the other one. :D

05-04-2009, 01:30 PM
Surrealism - Tracie's book has arrived.

As soon as I opened it, I was amazed! What wonderful work so far! How beautiful! YAY!

And tracie, you know how you said to leave our footprints? Well...I did so. Literally. I stepped on an ink pad and then gave you a purple footprint on your signin page. Leave it to me to take everything literally :P

05-06-2009, 01:49 AM
OMG!!!! ROFL - did you really!!!!! LOL - thats just soooo funny!!!!!

05-13-2009, 08:32 PM
Lildebi's book has arrived in Aus, safe and sound. :D

Electablue's book is now on its way to Surrealsm.

I still have Egg's book which I hope to complete over the weekend and mail out to Surrealsm next week.

Phew..... Im catching up!!!!

05-15-2009, 08:55 AM
Please everyone, update your status. We agreed to monthly mailings and weekly check ins. This is not happening.

05-15-2009, 10:31 AM
I am bookless at the moment and mailed Lildebi's book to Eggstudio in March.

05-15-2009, 09:04 PM
Yep, Me too bookless.

05-17-2009, 11:31 AM
Hopefully you should receive it by the end of next week. :D
And your welcome! (staggering the books)
LOL - know the feeling!
(I just had 3 books before I mailed Electablues book....it was kind of stressful and they are haunting me!)

05-19-2009, 12:40 PM
The only book I have received from Lildebi is her own book that she mailed to me at the very end of February. She posted on MAW at the end of March that she was ready to send on Crftyscrapper's book as soon as I was ready, and I told her to send it on, but I never received it. I have only gotten to work on one book so far!

05-19-2009, 06:51 PM
The last book I worked on was lildebi's:unsure:

05-19-2009, 08:53 PM
Yeah, Lildebi's book is here with me. Probably a good idea to not send her anymore books until she checks in. But thats Adriayna's call as she's the hostess.

05-20-2009, 09:00 PM
Oh no, I didnt mean that you butted in! LOL
You are absolutely right, thats how it usually works. If someone goes MIA we stop sending things to them.

05-21-2009, 08:46 AM
I sent Lildebi a PM, but I will email her next. I am holding off on sending Tracie's book onto Craftyscrapper until she gets caught up as well.

05-21-2009, 09:53 PM
I'm glad it made it to you! I am getting really excited thinking of all the artwork that must be in it!

05-23-2009, 11:12 PM
YAY! Im glad it arrived safe and sound! I always worry about posting such packages from Aus. Im hoping to have the next one (Lildebi) in the mail to you early in the week. :D

05-25-2009, 01:33 AM
Dont panic! I wont be getting it out until Saturday, now. LOL :D

05-25-2009, 12:02 PM
...and who knows if you will ever get another one?:unsure: If you do it is going to be 3 or 4 months from now.

05-26-2009, 01:31 AM
Well, after that one, Lildebi's book will be on its way to Surrealsm.....so Ill try and spread them out a little! Ill probably bring that one to the US with me and mail it to Surrealsm from there.

05-26-2009, 11:46 AM
Tracie, I meant after Lildebi's there are no more, so you might as well take your time, too, of course. My point was that no one should be worried about finishing them quickly enough (except for the people who have disappeared).

I am so excited about going for to Artforall that I can hardly stand it!:swoon:

05-27-2009, 08:00 AM
No, nothing. I will give it a few more days and try again.

05-29-2009, 10:12 AM
Hey, I'm just checking in.:)

05-29-2009, 10:19 AM
Me too! :)

05-29-2009, 10:23 AM
Me three! I can't wait until I have a book to work on!

05-31-2009, 12:28 PM
Hello everyone. Sorry I have been MIA. I am in SC. My grandfather was extremely ill and we were not sure if he would recover. Thank the Lord his condition greatly improved and he went home a couple weeks ago. My mother had returned to MI to see him and I recently drove her home to SC. Currently my grandfather is undergoing chemotherapy and is having a bit of a rough time with the side effects. He was hospitalized last night for an infection, and needs to have a blood transfusion. His white cell count is very low for a few weeks after each treatment and we all have to be very careful not to carry germs into his environment.

I am working on Crftyscrappers book as I write this. I will be online more frequently while I am here in SC, but please feel free to call me if you need to get in touch with me more quickly. My cell number is 269-209-1332.

Adriayna, I do not have the mailing info anymore since that pm was in my mailbox at the other site. Could you please send me a pm here with a new list.


06-01-2009, 10:39 AM
I am ready to send on Crftyscrapper's book. I sent you a PM for your addy Electablue. Thanks:)

06-01-2009, 10:42 AM
I sent it to you, lildebi. I am glad to hear that your grandfather is doing better.

06-01-2009, 11:20 AM
Lildebi, its in the front page.

I am holding onto tracie's book until Craftyscrapper comes online and checks in.

06-01-2009, 04:26 PM
Thanks Adriayna, I will check out the front page.

I just mailed Crftyscrapper's book off to Electablue. I am staying at my parents in SC for a while, so before you mail to me send me a PM or call me.

06-05-2009, 10:51 PM
I received Craftyscrapper's book today from Lildebi. It looks great so far!

06-17-2009, 11:36 PM
I mailed Craftyscrapper's book today. I mailed it media mail for around 2.75, but if I had mailed it parcel post it would have been around 7.75 and priority was 7.82???:swoon: She said the rates had gone way up, but that just seemed crazy. The flat rate priority envelope would be cheaper.

Has anyone else run into this?

06-19-2009, 08:48 AM
Hey all I'm just checking in.

06-27-2009, 12:20 PM
I sent Craftyscrpper's book to Egg Studio almost 2 weeks ago, so I hope she got it by now.

I talked to Craftyscrpper at AFA last week and she had given Dana Surrealism's and Dana's books. I didn't get a chance to ask Dana about it, but we were hoping that Purple might get to work in Surrealism's book whle she was visiting Dana since it had feathers in it and usually such things can't be sent to Australia.

The two books I saw were absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to work on them myself!

06-29-2009, 08:12 AM
Hi everyone - yes, craftyscrapper gave me the two books. I didn't get a chance to have tracie work in it--maybe we can give her the dimensions of Surrealism's book with the feathers and ask her to send in artwork that can be glued in or something.

I will be sending out the books this week!

06-29-2009, 08:24 AM
I suspected she wouldn't have time when she was here.

Egg, did Craftscrpper's book never arrive?

06-29-2009, 03:02 PM
I had such great artistic plans while I was in the US but they all went to the crapper! I barely got any art done. :(
So as soon as I get back into gear ( jetlag has screwed with my sleeping!) the two books I have are my priority!

With the feathers, are the real or died ones? Cox died is ok to mail to Aus.

06-30-2009, 08:32 AM
Surreallism - HOLD THAT BOOK! LOL. I am moving and I really don't want to get it lost. Can you hold it and mail to my new address? You can mail it to me on the 15th. I'm not going to be ready to work on it till later this month anyways :)

06-30-2009, 10:47 PM
Id say not to write anything on the package to me about the feathers, coz theyd open it to look. Just write its an 'art book' and thats it. If they were real feathers the dogs would detect them, so if theyre not then they wont and it will all be good. :D

07-01-2009, 07:28 AM
Tracie, I dunno. I don't know if we want to risk it. I think we should leave it up to surrealism.

Surrealism - it should be fine, lol. I still have two weeks before I move. We haven't heard from lildebi in a while, so I am going to hold off mailing till I know she is back and the family stuff she is done with is over.

07-01-2009, 09:58 AM
Hey~ I'm so sorry I've been absent. I got the book. It's safe, got carried away and started on it without letting anyone know I had it. My bad. I'll go smack my knuckles with a ruler now. ;)

07-01-2009, 10:14 AM
Egg, I am glad it showed up! I was getting a little worried, but figured that you were just busy. Kudos to you for the smacking yourself so we don't have to do it.:rolleyes: I don't like having to be tough on people.

Personally, I don't think I would want to send anything to Australia that might be the least bit suspicious and risk having it confiscated.

07-01-2009, 10:02 PM
Well the doggies are trained to smell animals (birds, lizards etc) as they are often sent into Aus via mail. So if they picked up a scent of a bird.......

But being craft shop feathers they would have to have been treated for commercial sale, so they will be fine. Ive had them sent to me before.

If they were feathers off of the ground, I would say NO dont send them to me.

But its up to you Surrealsm. Im not entirely sure what they would do if they were real ground found feathers.

07-09-2009, 07:11 AM
I know......me soooo BAD! The kids are on school holidays, so Im just not getting any art time. :( But I WILL get one book done this weekend....... Ill go and write it on the noteboard on the fridge so I remember!!!!

(My mum has moved in, so I lost my art room....so all my stuff is everywhere! ARGHHH.... and not having my space crushes my muse.)

07-09-2009, 08:47 AM
Surrealism, I have the book! I will be passing on all of these once I move.

07-14-2009, 04:01 AM
Woohooo! I finally finished Eggstudio's book! YAY.....and have actually started on lildebi's! WOOT!!!!

Here is a link to my gallery where Egg's pages are - http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=89604

Hope theyre not tooooo dark for you, Eggs. :unsure:

Surrealsm - will be posting the book to you tomorrow....:D

07-14-2009, 09:06 AM
Lildebi, are you back yet? I don't want to send you these books till I know you are back "for good" :)

07-16-2009, 02:55 PM
Oh Miss Purple, that is wickedly cool~

07-17-2009, 08:31 PM
Thanks gals! Glad you like it Eggs. :D

Surrealsm ~ I was trying to get Lildebi's book done too to mail them together, but its not quite finished yet. So Ill mail Egg's book to you today.

07-18-2009, 04:11 PM
Lildebi, are you back yet? I want to send you some of these books I have, lol!

07-27-2009, 12:27 PM
Is it possible to just skip Lildebi for now and we can send them to her when she is active again? I have lots of time to work on these in the next month or so, but then am going to get really busy again.

07-27-2009, 01:45 PM
Ok, we'll do that. I'll skip Lildebi and send on to Electablue. Lisa, I'll prepare the books to send to you this week. I need to finish Purple's spread, then you can have all three, lolololol!

07-27-2009, 04:29 PM
Whoa! Three at one time!:swoon: I have only done three so far and that includes my own.

07-27-2009, 06:48 PM
LOLOLOL, I could hold on to one of them for a while if you'd like. One is mine, and the other is surrealism's, which I already have worked in. I need to work in Tracie's this week though.

07-27-2009, 08:15 PM
Surrealsm ~ Egg's book should be arriving at your house this week sometime!

I have lildebi's book still.
Dana - do you want me to just hold onto it for a while or keep it going in the rotation?
Im about 70% done on her spread.

07-28-2009, 10:07 AM
Dana, you can go ahead and send them to me all at once if it is easier. In some ways I think it is easier and faster to work in several at the same time. It is too bad I didn't just get them from you at AFA and saved the postage.

07-28-2009, 10:08 AM
Just hold onto it. I don't know what else to do.

Until craftyscrapper comes back, we are skipping her in the rotations as well. She told me not to when she was at AFA09, but she hasn't yet posted in our thread since then, so we are skipping her too.

07-28-2009, 10:08 AM
Dana, you can go ahead and send them to me all at once if it is easier. In some ways I think it is easier and faster to work in several at the same time. It is too bad I didn't just get them from you at AFA and saved the postage.

LOL, that's what media mail is for! As long as I don't include a note in it, they say its ok :P

07-28-2009, 10:26 AM
Make sure you don't send me a note! One thing I have noticed lately is that media mail is a lot slower than it was for a while. I think they are trying to discourage its use.

07-28-2009, 12:50 PM
They are discouraging ANYTHING but expensive priority mail. Scumbag postal service....

07-28-2009, 08:58 PM
Ok, Ill hold onto Lildebi's until she resurfaces. So I think I am waiting on another book from Eggs. Did you mail it Eggs?

07-30-2009, 10:28 AM
Eggstudio, we need you to check in! I am going to send her an email since she hasn't checked in a while.

07-30-2009, 05:50 PM
oops, yes I'm here. I've have a book for you Ms. Purple.
Sorry about that folks. We are moving a library again. And I mean a public library.
Takes a lot out of one.

08-03-2009, 04:14 PM
Lisa, you have three books incoming: DC# 03091140000182551279

Surrealism's book, My book, and Purple's book. Your own book has almost completed its journey--I will work on it in the next few weeks and get it back to you!

My poor book never made it past craftyscrapper, but now that its on to you, hopefully some more pages will get finished in it :)

08-04-2009, 11:16 AM
Dana, it is so sad that yours didn't get far, but have no fear! I will get it done ASAP and send it on to Egg so it can continue its journey. I plan on doing lots of work on these this weekend.

I feel so fortunate that my place in the rotation allowed mine to get worked on so efficiently and I can't wait to see what people did with it!:jiggy:

08-04-2009, 01:04 PM
Gals, I just wanted to let you know that Craftyscrapper has been suspended from AFA due to her negatives. That means that she is permanently out of our group. Lildebi is still offline as well, but when she surfaces, I'll have her return Craftyscrapper's book to her.

08-04-2009, 01:16 PM
That is too bad about Craftyscrapper! I have only worked in hers and Lildebi's books. I think Crafty's book is either with Egg or Purple or maybe Surrealism?

08-04-2009, 03:13 PM
Yeah I still have Craftyscrapper's book was almost posting it to Miss. Purple.

Ok, so where should I send it? back to her?

08-04-2009, 04:54 PM
Yeah, I think that would be best, Eggy. So sorry for the trouble!

08-07-2009, 01:46 AM
Glad to hear Eggs book arrived safe and sound, Surrealsm. I always worry about these mailings until they get over the other side of the world!

So if Im not getting crafty's book from Eggs, then it will be a while until I receive another book? Correct?

08-07-2009, 08:45 AM
Looks like it, Tracie. Mine will be coming eventually!

08-07-2009, 10:38 AM
I am going to try to do the three that Dana is sending pretty quickly, but they do take time and I don't want to rush through anyone's. Of course, they need to get to me first.:rolleyes:

08-07-2009, 10:41 AM
They are on their way, as of last Friday. I sent them media mail, so they may take some time. I have a DC# around here somewhere for them....

08-07-2009, 11:05 AM
I knew you sent them! I have just noticed that media mail has gotten really slow and I want them to get here! You did send me the number, so I can find it if I need to. It is the post office I am annoyed with, not anyone else. It seems like they are deliberately making media mail take longer so we will pay for more expensive shipping.:(

08-07-2009, 11:11 AM
Yes, they are. Parcel post is no longer any cheaper either. They are trying to eliminate anything but priority mail :(. But those books were nearly $17 to ship priority, so they went $4 media mail :)

08-07-2009, 02:30 PM
I am glad you only paid $4.00, which is bad enough. Any other kind of shipping is outrageous.

08-07-2009, 02:38 PM
Lisa, its arrived in DFW, so it shouldn't be long now :)

08-07-2009, 02:43 PM
Yeah! I hope it gets here tomorrow.

08-07-2009, 08:51 PM
They arrived TODAY!! It is overwhelming to receive three wonderful books at the same time. I glued the pages together so I can work on them when I get the chance. The pages stuck together a little bit, so I am going to make sure and put more wax paper between the pages when I mail them. Temperatures over 100 are not kind to my mail.:(

08-07-2009, 10:53 PM
Are the pages ok? I had wax in them, so I had hoped not to have that happen. I forget how hot it gets down there though. It hasn't gone above 80 degrees for like two weeks here. Absolutely beautiful!

08-08-2009, 11:55 AM
Your page isn't that bad. It stuck along the center a little bit, but it didn't rip. The paint that came up could be touched up easily enough. I would do it myself, but i think it would be better to wait until it gets to Purple. The wax paper you put in it protected the outer parts of the page, so they are ok.

Who knows how hot it gets sitting in trucks along the way? I had some problems last summer when I was hosting a swap with things melting, too. I am so jealous of your weather!

08-09-2009, 05:59 AM
Things tend to melt when they come over to me in our Summer. (Jan to March) So I know exactually how you feel Electa. I remember joining a encaustic swap and then thought about it and realised that my cards wouldnt even make it out of my city in one piece! LOL

08-09-2009, 08:40 AM
I also wanted to say that I tried to very carefully open the pages! I think the problem is easily repairable.

I forgot to mention yesterday that there was a label on the package that said it had been opened for inspection!! It really didn't feel like it had books in it so I am sure that is what flagged it. Good thing they didn't decide our altered books were works of art and not books!:rolleyes:

Encaustic in the summer is a bad idea!

08-09-2009, 09:07 AM
So they passed inspection? Awesome. I showed some previous altered books to my Postal Worker in Lafayette and they told me that they would pass.

08-09-2009, 10:07 AM
Yes, they must have passed since I got them. Its a good thing they didn't notice your note!;)

08-11-2009, 03:43 PM
I've packed the book up for cityscrapper. What is in it is very lovely.

08-11-2009, 10:15 PM
I am finished with Dana's book and almost finished with Purple's and have Surrealism's started. I am going to try to mail Dana's tomorrow because I think it would be overwhelming to mail them all at once. Is that ok with you, Eggs?

08-11-2009, 11:10 PM
Eggy, can you put a note in it saying since she wasn't participating in the group, we returned her book to her? Thanks!

08-13-2009, 04:27 PM
Yep Miss Blue it works for me.
and Yep Miss Dana I put in a little note saying something like that.

08-13-2009, 04:42 PM
Eggs, I mailed Dana's book first class yesterday, so it should be there by Saturday or Monday. In this case the book was so small that it only cost 30 cents or so more for first class than it did for media mail, so it was worth it.

08-13-2009, 08:13 PM
Look at you go, Electablue! Youre on a role!

08-13-2009, 08:42 PM
Woohoo! Go Lisa!

I'm still working on your book. Ok, well, its sitting here and I'm waiting to get inspired :)

08-14-2009, 12:20 PM
It is so exciting to finally get so many books to work on that I can hardly control myself.:jiggy: I didn't think Eggs really wanted 3 books at once. I do have to say that it is faster to prep three at once than if I did each one separately.

08-14-2009, 10:34 PM
LOL - I dont think eggs wants to send me 3 books at once either.....bit on the expensive side!

08-23-2009, 09:22 AM
Hey I got Dana's book. It's lovely. Yep one less book to Aus. is a help in the pocket.

08-23-2009, 04:55 PM
Thanks for checking in, Gals!

So far, the ideas aren't flowing on Lisa's book. They will come, I promise, Lisa! :)

08-24-2009, 10:30 AM
Eggs, I am glad Dana's book showed up. I was getting a little worried.

Dana, I KNOW you will come up with something wonderful!

I haven't really worked on the books any more. I am having the hardest time with the blackbirds theme for some reason. I wouldn't think it would be that difficult.

08-24-2009, 11:45 AM
I know it too, Lisa! I just don't know when it will happen, lol :P

Surrealism and Eggy, nice to see you both!

10-02-2009, 01:43 PM
Purple's and Surrealsm's books are on their way to Eggy. They are so wonderful that I didn't want to send them on.:unsure:

I just realized that I never left Itrader for anyone.:( Sorry! Somehow it slipped my mind since we started on Mail Art World. I will try to leave it within the next week or so.
