    OS G-36, "Pickpockets", Circle Journal Group - Last Mail Date April 15th

    Note from EGOD/Gretchen:
    We are still swapping pages. Mar, our hostess, has had a very hard winter with illness and loss in the family. We have fallen behind on our schedule. I have volunteered to take over the group for now; it would be helpful if people who are here check in and let us all know where they are on the schedule.


    Welcome by 'The Pickpockets'
    Pockets & Tags #3 Journal Group

    SORRY THIS GROUP IS FULL

    There are lots of ways to make a pocket that holds tags. These journal will have a Three Tag minimum per page and two pages spread. The tags can be hand-made or store bought shipping tags or be creative and think about a tag in the style of the theme. Make them anyway you would like: hand drawn, painted, collaged, clip art.


    And here are our fantastic artists


    1. carol schmidt/monarch......... "Little Girls & Flowers" ............8x8............USA
    I guess I never embellished on my theme because it is basicly an open theme of little girls and flowers...............The little girls can be just the heads, whole bodys.........just cute little girls.....................and they can be vintage....whatever you can find and want to do.................. As for the backs with page protectors...If there is a mess on the back I would cover it up with another sheet of paper........I would like the person who does my page to sign the back and date it and if I pull it out to show someone, I don't think we want to see a mess on the back...............
    BindingUse pageprotectors no margin needed


    2. kysunflower............. "Asian/Oriental" ....................8x8............USA
    Ok, mine is asian/oriental, and I don't care a whole lot for a modern look, no polictial or religeous, artisitc black and white nudity is ok, as long as it isn't too showy and pornagraphic, lets say mild nudity is ok. BindingI need about 1/2" on the right for the left page and 1/2" on the left for the right page free of words and embellishments, artist info on back, maybe cover the back with a printed paper9scrapbook type paper, or any style interesting paper old book, if artist is in another country a text like newspaper from that country would be great)

    3. Mar (groupleader)..... "Doors" ...............................8x8............The Netherlands
    My disciption for doors: You are totally free to use every medium you like, little embellies or fibers are welcome but not to bulky but when you goes bulky, please make the pages sturdy enough. By doors I think of very special doors which chatch your attention by color, could also be an old door. But also the hinges, locks, keys, numbers, names, mailboxes or knockers or other things which could belong at a door. I love collage and a vintage look, but feel yourself free, if you like it I like it to, when the pages are done with love and care. BindingI also made my own journal and needed about 1/2" on the right for the left page and 1/2" on the left for the right page.

    4. craftyvox................ "?" .....................................8x8.......... ..The Netherlands
    My theme. I'd love something with (foreign) text, books, literature, languages, words and descriptions.. but haven't yet found a nice short description for it yet.
    I like old-fashioned looks but not too flowery or sweetsie, am a fan of collage (although I suck at making them myself I feel) and love earthtones but also the brighter colors that go with them.
    You are all wonderful artists so I am sure you can come up with some beautiful stuff. And as long as it has something texty on it, it would be great!
    Do's and don't's for my pages. Nothing religious please, no real nudity as I like to be able to show my journal around also to my cousins and such , some glitter is fine but don't go overboard on the glitter and glamour please.
    BindingUse pageprotectors no margin needed


    5. spunkygal............... "Birdhouses" .........................8x8............USA
    For my pages you have Birdhouses as my theme can you also put Birds in there. For my pages, please no nudity, religious/pagan/satanic elements. (But maybe that did not have to be said with birdhouses for a theme)

    6. Gretchen/EGOD................ "Foreign Travel" .....................8x8............USAI would really like it to be like a travel journal but not to the usual places. I would not care if the travel took place in the past, present, or future. For example, one could visit Venice in the time of the Doges and the Medicis, or visit a tribe of Amazonian Indians in the present, or some imagined culture in the past or future. Any thoughts? Does this sound too involved to anyone? I am, of course, a Nick Bantock fan. Needed no margins of free space


    SIGNATURE CARD
    --For craftyvox, Gretchen and carol schmidt:
    Include an ATC with some info on yourself: your name/username, most liked material to work with, image, ..., and for instance what all you had been thinking off while creating your pages for my journal. Whatever you would like to be on there. You can use both sides of the ATC.
    --for Mar's pages you can use one of the backs of one of the tag.

    THE RULES


    Next on to the rules, so there is no confusion (Please let me know if you have any questions, Iím happy to help.)

    1. You are required to check in on this thread at least once a week to let us know how things are going. If you are going to be away or on vacation or whatever, please let us know in advance so that people aren't worried about their spreads!

    2. If you do not post to your group thread or to a Group Leader for more than two (2) weeks, your membership in the Circle Journals will go on suspension. Your name will be taken off the rotation and pages will not be sent to you. NO EXCEPTIONS. We expect active participation on threads.

    3. Mail out dates: We will have mail out dates each 15th of the month and be mailing our 2 page spreads to each individual directly.

    4. Delivery Confirmation Numbers (for USA) on packages are no longer mandatory for page spreads, but if you do use them, post the # in the group thread or post the maildate in the group after posting.

    5. All members should PM me with your FULL contact information (Name, address, email address, and all telephone numbers). When I have everyone's info, I will send out the list to all members so that we can contact each other if necessary.

    6. Because these are treated the same as Pick-A-Themes (PAT) each spread completed is entitled to a TRADER RATING.

    I have finished through March, but I haven't mailed that one yet. I still have one to do for Spunkygal. I have only received one from Spunkygal, but my next two were to be from Mar and Craftyvox who havImagee both had difficult winters.

    I haven't taken over except to get us up and running. I'm sure Mar will be back. I don't see it here, but Craftyvox has checked in with me and is now registered on this site. All the personal info (addresses and such) that Mar sent out is still relevant.

    Egod, I updated the format of your first post to make it more legible. I would advise EVERY member to NOT mail your next spread to a particpant until they have checked in here on the new site. We have no way to 'guarantee' that trades worked out at the old site will be completed; but we certainly hope everyone follows through with pre-arranged swaps.
    Thanks!

    I'm in too

    Hi all

    Sorry it took a few days, but here I am too. However I had hoped that I could finished my pages the past weekend and days, I couldn't managed it because my MIL had to go to a care-house or how do you called it in English. She has Alzheimer and can't stayed longer at home and we were at her place to make arrangements and so on.

    But I have done something I almost finished the pages for you all, I have to do some little things and of one page I'm not sure. So I think that I can finished them this weekend and sent them all out. of course I will post pictures of them.

    When I came home yesterday I found the pages of Erin and Carol, thank you both so much they been beautiful. Sorry that I didn't respond earlier but I'm still recovering and I was so exhausted when I came home yesterday.

    So I be off for trader points and be back with the photo's. Glad to see you here all too and Erin thanks for picking-up the group.

    Mar, take your time,life happens and slows us down sometimes.
    I think in english, care-house is nursing home, if you mean what it sounds like.
    Going into the hospital on Tuesday, so theres a chance I may be late with my March pages.

    Kysunflower,
    I hope your stay is brief and successful. We'll be thinking of you.
    Mar,
    We're so glad to see you back. So sorry too to hear of additional hard times. No one is rushing you for pages. You did such an effective job of organizing us to begin with that the group is, I think, self-running. Our thoughts are with you.
    Carol, You are in our thoughts as well. I hope your family is doing well.
    Erin

I scanned the front covers and made tags out of some of the pages...........The writing is foreign so I don't know what the pages say I hope you like them when you see them in person......

    For Cindy since she just returned to our new home. As Mar wrote a few days ago, she is taking it a bit easy while recovering from all that happened in her real life the past months. Donna is currently recouperating from surgery - not quite sure whether she's home already or not. Best wishes and hugs to both (and the rest too offcourse!)

    I am glad to hear you like your pages!! They should be getting close to your mailbox now! Ditto for Carol's and Erin's pages btw.

    Craftyvox, I received your lovely pages today. I love those little clothes pins and your unexpected placement of the pockets as well as the other embellishments. Thank you.
    I will be giving you i-trader in a minute. Today, I finished the last bits of your pages, got them packaged and ready to mail. The weather here is about freezing with a cold rain falling which is supposed to turn to snow; therefore, I'm waiting to tomorrow or the next day to get to the post office!
