Can we use a LV that is longer than 8" if it can be squished down or folded to fit?

I was wondering this myself. I just realized that the LV I've been working on (a jellyfish) is over 8" because I made some of the tentacles a bit too long. Tongue What's the official decision on this rule?

The reason we have a size limit is because of both postage costs and the fact that your LV is supposed to travel EVERYWHERE with you! Nobody is going to want to lug around something too big that doesn't easily fit in a bag.

The size limit isn't set in stone and things that squish down should be fine - especially with something that has tentacles.

But please post photos - we've asked you to do so, because that way we can know if there are any LV's which might not be suitable.

Hope that helps!  Smiley

Below is a picture of Bubbles as I sent her off last swap.

The longer spiral tentacle (the one on the LV contract) makes her length nearly 12". But the bell or head of the jellyfish is just a wee bit over 4" round. When she is all squished up Bubbles is about the size of a mens pair of socks folded.

Bubbles is the perfect example! She's tiny - those tentacles don't count at all!  Cheesy Thanks Nat.


Partners are being posted on the first page of the thread RIGHT NOW! I shall be PMing everybody their partners questionnaires shortly. Remember to stay in contact with your partner throughout the swap - maybe even send a surprise postcard!  Smiley

Hopefully your LV's are already packed up and ready to go! Everybody MUST have send by the end of Monday 20th June - that's this coming Monday!
The sooner you send, the sooner your LV gets to start traveling!  Cheesy

I get to host Icebox for the 3rd time  Grin  I miss him! I haven't seen him since the beginning of September! He is definitely a family member now and I am just uber excited for him to tell me what he has been up to since we last saw each other.

Here is Winnie(from Maine) who will be going off to Virginia(again, again) to see heath_face! She is chilling with her bestie Roary, both sporting the awesome scarves that heath_face made for them. Don't they look dashing?

I didn't realize you were so close! I just figured it's a good sized state and that you lived on opposite sides of it Tongue
