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.
PLEASE UPDATE YOUR POST ONCE YOU JOIN A GROUP AND ARE NO LONGER INTERESTED/AVAILABLE TO JOIN ANOTHER - THANKS

UPDATE - In Group 9 starting mailing Nov 2010

I would love to be considered also....I had thought of starting one too, but I also have only hosted 3..There are several on the #8 waiting list....maybe we could PM a few of them...
I could start as soon as I get my hands on one of those little moley books
08-03-2010, 10:52 AM
Well, I have been interested for quite a while, but since I was away from the site recently, I won't be eligible to join until Mid-October. I'll brainstorm on themes and come back.
08-04-2010, 01:09 PM
1. My theme would be either ROYGBIV (rainbow) or Peacocks
2. I'm willing to mail International

or cinema noir
09-03-2010, 08:34 PM
I got into one, removing my name for now.
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. :)
09-08-2010, 11:56 AM
I'd be very interested too.
Themes, probably goddesses/myths or more vague like 'magical mystery tour' (but I'm not even sure exactly what that means, it just came to me, lol)
International - of course! ;)
I can start as soon as I get a moley
09-29-2010, 04:09 AM
Im dying to be in a moley group. I always miss sign up.
Themes: Zetti, whimsical tales, fairytales, glam rock/androgeny
International?: Yes please!
I can be ready at anytime...please someone do another so I can be in it.
10-06-2010, 12:30 PM
In Group 12; not currently available
1. Themes: fairy tales, Halloween, Doctor Who/Torchwood, Zentangles with a twist
2. can do international
3. Ready any time - I have Japanese moleys on hand
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.
10-16-2010, 01:08 PM
1. Themes = nature, hand-drawn/painted or mixed-media, found poetry, Japanese culture, fantasy (elves, faeries, etc), ephemera collage, vintage
(Basically, anything that isn't about Satan/demons/hell, witchcraft, sex, etc.)
2. International is fine
3. I'm ready whenever the group is
10-21-2010, 07:14 PM
Just squeeked into Group #12! so off the list for now.
I'm fascinated by the whole idea of these Moleys! I'd love to be a part of one.
1. Vintage, industrial, steampunk, dark rich colors, paintovers.
2. Encouragement, words of affirmation, faith, positive energy.
3. Creepy, kooky and weird, zombies, one eyed creatures, more fun than truly dark.
2. International is fine.
3. Ready whenever a new group starts. Cant wait!!

It's random. When someone feels like the huge task of hosting a moley group they can PM friends, look here, just throw it out there and see who signs up, any number of ways but usually a combination of the above. I read over the existing moleys a LOT before signing up for my first.
03-14-2011, 08:18 PM
Yes, I have been spending a lot of time reading about them. I was just wondering how the sign ups work. I look forward to joining one as soon as I am asked or one comes available to join. Thanks for the information=)

09-15-2011, 02:28 PM
I'm interested in being in a group. You need to decide if my artwork is good enough to be included. I would choose the theme "take flight" to be interpreted by the individual artists in any way they choose and to be created in any media/style.
I'm available to start any time. And I would welcome international trades.
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?
1. Fibonacci Sequence/Golden Mean
2. International mailings, yes
3. November 1, 2011
11-15-2011, 04:35 AM
absolutely dying to do this!
theme TBA, yes to international (I'm in the UK), anytime after Christmas 2011.
11-15-2011, 10:32 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...
11-15-2011, 11:43 AM
If I had the skill, I would host a swap...so much fun. Has anyone ever thought of doing the Moleskein watercolor book in a swap! I'd surely be up for that!
11-16-2011, 11:15 AM
zandra, are you volunteering to host, because if that's the case, i'm in.
11-16-2011, 12:15 PM
zandra, are you volunteering to host, because if that's the case, i'm in
oh me too!!
11-17-2011, 04:33 AM
well, no, i wasn't volunteering. but i wouldn't rule it out. i've never hosted before and i've never done a moleskine journal -- but if someone would mentor me, i'd consider it.
11-17-2011, 09:28 AM
Please read the guidelines for hosting these groups:
Book Journal Guidelines-PLEASE READ (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10827)
Group leaders have to meet certain requirements before they can sponsor a group.
11-18-2011, 03:18 AM
Thank you, Carole. I'm not officially qualified, so I'm off the hook.
But I still wanna play!
11-18-2011, 03:21 AM
Oops I have just discovered that I cannot join any other circle book groups until I have completed the deco rotation group which has just got under way.:embarrassed:
So I have to remove myself from the waiting list.:sad:
Good luck to the rest of you:)

03-06-2013, 08:31 AM
Can anybody explain what implies to host? I want to participate in one I never did it before. So I would like to learn before to decide if I could do it.
03-06-2013, 10:55 AM
patgel, here is a link to the sticky note that describes the hosts requirements and responsabilities.
03-08-2013, 12:59 PM
I read the rules, I can't be a host because I haven't hosted 5 swaps.
So we have to keep waiting until somebody takes the lead:sad:
03-18-2013, 10:59 PM
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.
05-06-2013, 10:09 PM
Finally found the moleskin books.....yeah so very very HAPPY!!!!!
Theme artists choice, (please no nude or crude, scrapbook style)
Yes can do international.
My journal has lines. Do I prep all the journal pages with gesso? Or does the individual artist affix their own preference?
Now who can host one?
05-21-2013, 11:18 AM
I participated in Moley group #16 and loved it. Since I haven't hosted any swaps, I'm not eligible to start one. I would love to join one again if anyone would have me!
06-08-2013, 10:28 PM
Yes we wait... i haven't hosted five swaps yet either....
06-14-2013, 11:33 PM
I would also like to do a Molely. I have journaled throughout my life and have the Holey Molely calling. And I have not hosted a single swap. Oh gracious swap hosty make yourself known and gather us who are longing to share the process of the Molely. The waiting begins.
