    Sounds right Zandrazee. Although, I think Kristinized said 3 pages in each book.

    ...and I think my theme will be...THROUGH THE MICROSCOPE...a large view of small things,the detail you don't always see,the secret life of microbes and what they get up to when we are not watching them,what bacteria eat for breakfast......
    Any medium,style ,colour that takes your fancy.
    And...if all would like...I would be happy to make little moley pouches for each moley again when they come to me.....?

    I think my Theme will be... FLIGHTS OF FANCY... Images of Things with Wings. Birds, butterflies, angels, fairies or animal fairies, dragons etc. Real or imaginary or even Zetti combinations. Wherever you'd like to take it. Done in an illustrated journal type style with lots of layers and textures. Mixed media and collage. Writing and journaling would be great. Flip ups and pockets, etc welcome.

    I just want to be very clear, since this is my first moley swap. First we buy our books and do the first 3-4 pages with theme and mailing order and possibly cover. Kristenzed gives us the mailing order and we ship off as directed. In each journal we do a page in the requested theme and mail off to the next in time. Repeat until the circle is complete.

    Is that right? Have I understood properly?
    Yes, that's right although you'll do a 3 page spread in the requested theme for everyone's books.

    I am just playing host this time, so I won't have a book.

    I have mailing info from camcase, zandradee, Lovefroud, and Jewels - if everyone else can PM me their details please? I will need your real name, mailing address, phone, and email. The phone and email are just for me per moley book rules, and the name and address is so everyone can mail books to you!

    I've been updating the main post with everyone's themes, and linking to your comment explaining and going into detail. Hopefully that will make it easy for everyone to quickly jump to the post in case you need a reminder.

    How are we doing with the group name? Any favorites?

    Are you sure you don't want to join in the fun. According to my page count with 3 pages each there's room for 9 artists. If we're only 8, should we be doing 4 pages?

    just spitballing here...

    3.0 x 8 = 24 doesn't this mean the moley owner ends up doing nine pages in their own book?
    3.5 x 8 = 28 gets us the closest to 30 and the owner does 2 additional pages at the end???
    4.0 x 8 = 32 the moley only has 30 folds, but if the guests do 4 each, you'd be at 28, the owner would have two pages (+ the inside cover right?)

    moley vets what works best?

    I count 33 pages (includes the inside cover and the back and front of the title page plus 30 folds) In the last Moley swap I was in there were 8 artists (including the Host) The Moley owner did 5 pages at the beginning and the rest did 4 each.

    9 Artists would take a bit of adjustment but I'm sure we could manage. We could even tack on a couple pages to the end of the fold or something.

    YIKES! 33 - wouldn't that be 12 pages done by the owner if the guests are each doing only 3 pages? That's my least favorite choice - that's more than 1/3 of the book done by me. I want more of everyone else's artwork.

    I have no problem doing more than 3 and kind of like the idea of me starting it with a few and also ending with a few of my pages to show it's gone full circle.

    LOL Well, if we can talk Kristin into playing, that'd would get it down to 9 pages for the owner. We could do 5 at the beginning and 4 at the end. That might be do-able.
