Tip in could be cool - sure is nice to see the "books" though - that is what got me talking to the post office lady - she was telling me I really should have been using the flat rate box with the weight I was sending <G>  these sure are big beautiful books so much fun to look at  Smiley

Ooo, you know what might be cool...if we had everyone buy the exact same spiral notebook, similar to the ones most of us are using now, (we could vote on a size), and everyone could take theirs apart and send completed pages instead of the entire book. Then we could all just reassemble them when the pages come in.

We'd probably open it up to a few more people that way, too. It's worth thinking about.

This is a *very* cool idea.  Let's do it!

Noooo! Don't rush! Please, take your time!

I don't want to fuel the "I want my book! I want my book!" frenzy TOO much, but I gotta post this: I just received amaryllisroze's journal in the mail and it is friggin' AWESOME. It is HUGE and filled with amazing stuff... I can't stop looking at it!

I will try my very bestest to finish it early so I can send it on home to ya -- you're gonna love it!

That could totally work. Would we send as we finish them with just one deadline for all of them or would it be a long circuit like these have been?

If we did it that way, I think we'd still send out every two weeks or so...you just wouldn't send in the "ring" like we do now.

I have to agree with gg, though. I really love seeing the books, and also telling everyone the story behind them.

Hmmm. Let's keep discussing.

I do prefer the books but I'm not opposed to a change. I'm flexible.

I bring them to work to ship them and show them off to my coworkers. They don't get the reason we do them (not crafty girls, unfortunately) but they do appreciate the beauty.

I do get asked "But what do you do with them when they're done?" on a regular basis though.  Cheesy

Hooray! The last journal has finally found its way, so all the journals are at their last stop before home.

Everyone take good care of them! The deadline for the final sendout is September 24.  Smiley

September 23rd is going to be a very busy day for me, then!

Ha! Just kidding...

I'd be laughing if it weren't my book you were talking about in such a cavalier manner.  Tongue

I have started on stiffly's, but like most of my other pages, I can tell that it's going to come out completely different than what I first envisioned. Isn't that the beauty of it, though?

I hope no one minds, but I have changed the last sendout due date to September 27. This is three days later than the original date. I'm going to be out of town this week from Thursday to Monday the 24th, and I know that a couple of other people have had concerns about the deadline.

I hope this is ok with everyone. Feel free to send early, but if you need a few extra days, there you are.  Grin
