*Ahem* Bridget Jones *ahem* Cheesy

There must be a good way to arrange a round-robin UK-US without being too expensive, it'd be fantastic!

Racky's idea is pretty good, I think. We'd each only end up sending overseas twice, right? The rest would be domestically. I think it could work if we wanted it to. It would definitely be a long term project, though, when you add in the shipping time.

I'd love to see them in security when I show up wearing all my clothes and with a bag full of journals.  Cheesy

I really don't think it'd be too bad doing it the way I first proposed. Two shippings, months apart shouldn't hurt too badly.

I made mine, so it was a gradual process rather than facing a pristine blank cover. I'd find that quite hard I think. I did my usual - slapping brown paper tape on top of cardboard for some rustic charm! Cheesy I don't think there's an easy way to start, it's like white paper syndrome, until you make that first splurge it's scary!

Maybe I'll just slap some brown paper tape over the shiny black cover and that will help me! I've sanded it down some to make it less shiny, but its still just sits there and glowers at me...daring me to mess it up.

Just creep up on it and pounce with a paintbrush or some tape. Once that first mark is made the rest will flow. (Ancient saying don't ya know!)

Yeah, that sounds okay. After all they shouldn't get too heavy, and it would be only 2 mails abroad. I had all the sending in my head like the UK swap for some reason. Maybe I was distracted by all this talk of knickers! Cheesy

Yes, that was my idea too, to have the UK journals going round the USA and vice-versa - I'm sure Phizzy and I can organise half the world if we put our minds to it!  And the postage doesn't work out expensive if you are sensible about the size of the journals (we said between A4 and A6, which is 8.5"x11" maximum, down to 4.3"x5.5" minimum) and add heavy things you love after the journal gets home again.  Also, because you are only mailing out every two or three weeks, not every day, it comes down to less than a dollar a week, I estimate.

We used very general themes - three people just said pick a colour, one did Lost and Found, one gave a LONG list of things she liked that we could pick from, others left it open what you did - but the letters and numbers sounds fun to me - will try not to crib too much from the Alphabetica book, which adorns my bookshelf too!
