    #5 MoleyMoleyMoleyMoley, Yet ANOTHER Moleskine Exchange! (full)

    We're full!! Feel free to hang out and chatty-chat!

    These Moleskine exchanges are all the rage this year. They're totally the new black. This will be an 10-player, open medium swap!

    We will start with a Japanese Album Pocket Moleskine, so get to orderin!! Hyah! Hyah!! *whipcrack* (If you're having trouble getting one, let me know, like if you have no credit card or something - I have a whole bunch of them and have paypal!!) These moleys unfold into one loooong page that will be completely filled on the front side with art by the end of the swap. Whee!

    The first mail-out date is going to be September 15th, mailing to the first person on your individual travel plans. After that, each artist will have a month to complete 3 pages and then mail on to the next person! If you are having a hard time and need more time, please make sure you let us know! We don't want things to get TOO backlogged and have one person stuck with three moleys at a time, but sh!t happens, as they say! I'll change up the travel plans so that everyone gets to mail to Canada (Hi Mary!), except for Edensrainbow and Siren, who live together and are nearly the same person (hi girls!) I'll alternate them, but they'll always be together on the itinerary.

    Each artist will choose their own theme, color scheme/do's and don't's, and special instructions for their own moleys. You can, of course, choose "no theme, go nuts" as your theme! Some special instructions in other swaps have been to put a photo and bio on the backside of your pages, to include a little bit of ephemera in the back pocket, to take a personalized gift OUT of the back pocket, etc. You are the boss of your own moley!

    After you purchase your moleys, fill out and decorate the first non-accordian pages with your name, address, and travel plan (as soon as I figure it out), and decorate the cover if you so desire. Then, the first 3 pages are all yours! This is a good time to establish your theme and color scheme and give people a jumping-off point! There are some other moley exchanges in this forum if you'd like to see what other people have done, and there's a great group on Flickr, moly_x, with gobs and gobs of sticky eye candy! Yum!

    Participants:
    1. Rkolig - Things With Wings
    2. Edensrainbow - Women
    3. Siren "Sometime Around Midnight"
    4. amyfaerie - Writing
    5. nuttynanner - The Enchanted Garden of Oddities and Delights
    6. corrie04 - Color Explosion
    7. themuppet - Funky Fairy Tales
    8. Loralou - Texture
    9. JoyFlower - Hope
    10. katilady - Death and Rebirth

    TO SUM UP (because I'm babbly):
    1. Buy a Japanese Accordian moleskine, choose a theme.
    2. Decorate the first pages and include your travel plan, name, and address, decorate the cover if you wish.
    3. Fill the first 3 pages of your own moley with your chosen theme.
    4. Ship your moley to the first person on your travel plan on 09/15/09.
    5. Wait eagerly for your first moley to appear in your mailbox!
    6. Post pictures of your art as you complete it so we can all ooooh and aaaaaah!!

    Random Regulations:
    * Mailing must be done with either the priority flat rate envelope or small box with delivery confirmation for the US participants. International participants should use their equivalent! Please protect your moley with a bubble envelope/bubble wrap and plastic bag!
    * PM your recipient before mailing to make sure they're ready to receive the moley and don't already have one. We need to try to keep one moley per person as much as possible!
    * I will keep a master list of all participants' mailing addresses, email addresses, and other contact information throughout this whole thing, just in case!

    THE TRAVEL PLAN:

    Purple - working
    Pink - traveling
    Green - completed

    1. Rkolig - amyfaerie - Loralou - Nuttynanner - Siren - Edensrainbow - katilady - Corrie04 - themuppet - joyflower

    We could always adopt a "more the merrier" attitude, do 3 pages apiece, and let both Kati and Pesto play.................... Hands?

    ...what if Siren and I are the same person and we're just one, split personality artist?

    ooh, I just got chills. Although, there does seem to be a lot of hair-that-isn't-mine in the bathroom, so maybe not.

    I am totally cool with squeezing more people in. Especially since the people rock.
