i am going to ty and get this started tonight. what should the time period be for sign ups? i know there was one person that wanted to wait until april but i have a feeling we will lose interest if we wait too long. also, i bet that this will happen again so maybe that particular person won't mind waiting??  Undecided
anyhow, i will pm everyone to let them know when i post ....like i said hopefully it will be tonight!
thanks for the offer of help mxer i will pm you if i need it. prob not but it always feels better to know it's there!

If this happens soon, i probably wont be able to join either.  What about long sing ups, and sending in the beginning of April?

what does everyone think about doing it as an 'ongoing' swap kind of like the atc one? this was for those that have to wait or want to wait can join in when ever they want?
i'd have to figure out some more of the details but just wanted to put that out there before i set anything in stone.

this swaps seems like it would be soo much fun!! although im kind of intimidated by it. ive only done an inchie swap. but id love a pm when the swap starts and all the details have been figured out.  Smiley would we be doing more of an "art" journal or an every day "this is what happened today" journal? would we be sending out multiple pages to multiple people or one page per person? and i like the idea of the on going swap idea. we could possibly get more people that way.

I haven't taken part in one of those ongoing swaps, so I'm not exactly sure how it works and stuff. But if you think that would be for the best, I'm always up for it! Cheesy Also, I really like the idea of having the one sheet/four pages, even though it might get a little more time consuming... But it's actually very clever binding wise.

I myself would love to have a long crafting time, so that every detail can be attended without rushing...! Also, having multiple partners or the amount of our choice makes me want to partner with a lot of people to get the most awesome journal ever. I want sign ups! Grin And obviously, everyone having their own themes sounds just wonderful!

Yeah, those would be much easier to bind together and you wouldn't have to fill so much space... I'm actually now quite intrigued by that idea even though I was kinda thinking of a full scale binded journal Cheesy Though, I like that idea, now I just need to figure out how would it look with blank pages for me to fill...

How about if we had a limit on the sizes of the pages, but everyone could pick their own size/shape as long as they're within the limits? Might get a bit complicated.

i agree that smaller pages would be easier to fill. maybe a half sheet of paper folded? only alter one side (essentially two pages). the person rec'ing could either glue the blank sides together or alter the other sides themselves?
i am still leaning towards a "ongoing" where you could claim up to five at a time. once a page is rec'd you could claim another.
i have the questionairre all set to go. just trying to figure out the least confusing way to do this...

meet your scatterbrained organizer--curiousfae!!!!

oh yeah, i think it would be more like an art journal but that's not to say it can't be written either. i think a little of both would be cool actually.

Just sent my info! I think I might have to do some stalking before I actually claim anyone, just to be sure that I understand the process.

I'm sorry if this was already mentioned and I missed it, but does each person have a theme for the journal I will be crafting according to?

Also, on another note, I need to go buy some new paper. The sheets I usually use are slightly too narrow (and also too long, for that matter)... Oh, and could we use colored, textured or otherwise different paper or would we be sticking with white for consistency?
