Hi all
To celebrate our 4 years i thought we could do a mini book swap. I'm sure there are loads of ideas out there for different types of books. the theme is up to you. the only provisos are these:
-must be smaller than A6
-Must weigh less than 100g in envelope including the return envelope
-it must be less tha 2.5cm thick.
the last 2 are to allow us to use a large letter stamp on our return envelope. this envelope will also need to be A5 to allow plenty of room.
Please sign up heer. I thought about a 6 week time frame would be good so please send to me by Tues 5th November.

Who is in:
Margaret
Vonny RCD
Becky RCD
Jennie
Miriam RCD
mickie RCD
Sarah  X

Feel a bit daunted by this one as have never made a mini book.  Do we have to make one for each person?  How many pages would it be reasonable for the book to have? Also, don't think I could get it to you for Nov 5 as that would mean getting it done before half term - though could get someone to post it in the UK on the 5th (immediately after half term) so you would get it quite soon after...

I am interested, but wanting to know how many we need to make?  One for everyone ?  Four pages sounds a good idea Margaret.

I meant we make one book each then we swap like for the ATCs -but I am open to suggestions althought i think one book means more people will feel they can join in. I wasn't thinking about how many pages -the 4 idea does link to the birthday tho but I think it will depend on what they are made from and what is added to them re decoration -that is why I put a thickness limitation on. -but we can go with the majority

I'm sure we can extend the time limit as I just chose it rather at random -how about 15th nov instead?

OK count me in if it is just one, or a few of us.  I wasn't sure I could commit to making a huge number  Very Happy

Just to clarify:
please make and send one book to meet crieteris above (related to postage costs really)
the book can have as many pages as you wish -if you want this to be 4 that is fine, but the choice is yours
Send to me by 15th Nov
I will then send one book back to each participant.Just like the ATC swaps.

enjoy -and anyone else can sign up at any time until the closing date

Wow you are all off the mark!  I was going to ask for a couple of days leeway so I can enjoy making it after the craft fair and the play.  Would it be ok Vonny if I posted around the 17 November?
