I'm good with 4 or 5 and a mth to craft is perfect Smiley

mid march is good for signups - I'm nearly full up on swaps (and thinking of joining another) and should have more space by then

I have a question - are the dimensions going to be 4 x 4 or 4.5 x 4? I know some people like that extra .5 inch for binding.

On a related note, I saw the cutest idea. It may have been in the cloth, paper scissors magazine. It was a little chunky house book. Similar to a chunky book, but was bound on the top two corners. It had a cover - front and back - which were half sheets, so it looked like a roof. I loved it! I want one!

i personally really liked the 4"x4", and i think given that this is a round 2, sticking with that size might be best. i was hoping to have my pages continue with the same theme, so i'd like them to be the same size!

those dates look fabulous sheepblue, i'll still be able to sign up once i get back!

We could certainly leave it optional though I will prefer 4x4. I plan on making some sort of display rather than binding it in a book. Speaking of which, I noticed that was something that was brought up in the first round so we could allow everyone to state their binding preference like the first so everyone is happy.

Yay, craftydame will be able to play with us  Grin

I really love the idea  of having everyone receive a book on the subject they wish, i think that would make everything more interesting too, for the makers, being challenged with different subjects/themes.  I can't wait for this!

That was my thought too! There'd be a lot more topics to derive ideas from and would be a great variety.

Hello-

The first round was great, but I really like the way the alphabet ATC swap worked, with rounds of three partners, like a series of swaps.

Interested in hearing what people think..
