    Curbside, do you happen to know an average shipping cost?

    sorry, corrie i dont. i havent mailed these out before . one suggestion is to keep the packaging not too big - like dont get a too big bubble envelope for it, i know for a fact it really reduces costs especially for mailing internationally.

    and 3.5 x 5.5 is not that big so hopefully shipping costs will not be that much.

    No problem. I just was going to write down the estimated shipping costs on my swap records.

    Yay! I found one here locally--it took some hunting but I did it. This makes me super happy cause i prefer to buy local then at the online mega stores. Anyway, my theme: art as a spiritual journey. I would like it to be mixed media as much as possible, but use your discretion. Woot!

    Thanks Annie! It was hard to decide on a theme. I almost went with Basquiat, but I decided that I would get bored with that.

    I was in another moleskine exchange which encouraged a combination of art and writing. I'm assuming this emphasizes art more than writing, right?

    I'm also hoping you all can give me some theme feedback, as I'm not sure I got the right one, especially if the moleskines focus mainly on the art. Does anyone have a gut reaction to my theme? Did you see it and think, "Oh, I can do that" or was it more "What am I going to do with that? Are the things that make your heart soar things you can draw or are they so abstract that you'd need a lot of explaining to do?

    Other ideas I have are All Creatures Great and Small (not in a religious way but encompassing enough for other artists to include their favorite creatures, birds, etc.), Castles, Quotes, Wisdom, or Horse Spirit.

    Any gut reactions to any of those? I'm seriously stuck and would feel better about going forward if I knew I wasn't picking a theme that might be unappealing to the rest of you.

    Seriously, I'll take votes!

    Hilary, I really like your original theme. I like that it's open enough for me to do my own thing, but does give me a direction to go in. What I have been thinking about for yours is doing a combo of collage with some text of the things i have in my life that make me really happy. I may include some hints at my spiritual life in that, but nothing too overt.

    Annie! OMG! I just got Somerset Studio's new Art Journaling mag (which is WONDERFUL) and saw your work in there! CONGRATULATIONS! It looks fabulous!!!! You have been so quiet about it!

    Also, a question for you. Anne Sexton did some poetry on fairy tales for her daughter, would it be OK to use some of that imagery in your book?

    Ok! Sounds perfect. I like the idea of including some word and/or quotes, too. The broader theme should make it pretty easy for all players to do their thing. Also, if cute 'lil critters make your heart sing, you can include those, as opposed to be obligated to do them.

    Lily - Your "Heart soar" theme is fine with me. I immediately had some ideas.

    These are hard to find where I live, and I've ordered my last two moleskine sets -- the pack contains two books -- through this link
