4th birthday swap

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
margaret rorie

Very Happy  Added in Becky
Sarah

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...
margaret rorie

I was thinking of 4 pages since it's our 4th birthday??  Margaret
Jennie

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

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?
Jennie

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
Miriam

Count me in....  though I feel a bit daunted - will get my thinking cap on!!
vonny

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
Mickie

Please count me in too

vonny

wow you two are organised
Beckyb

Mine is drying  Very Happy

  Becky x
Jennie

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?
vonny

that's fine jennie - i will just wait for all the books before swapping so no problem if anyone runs late, just let me know
Miriam

Vonny I haven't started mine yet... will get a wriggle on....
vonny

no problem, you have until mid nov so plenty of time yet
vonny

received Mickie's book yesterday - lovely work. look forward to seeing the rest
Beckyb

I am sure that won't be a problem Jennie I had a bit of a slip up so wouldn't mind some extra time  Laughing

    Becky  x
Miriam

Mine is going in the post to you today Vonny.... I actually really enjoyed doing it once I started!!

I think I have stayed within the limits set but have popped an extra stamp in the bag just in case!
Sarah

Vonny I'm really sorry but I think I will have to opt out of this one.   Just too much on at the moment and didn't get it done over half term as I was planning...Look forward to seeing photos of all the books though.
vonny

miriam -your book arrived safely and the envelope was not franked so i can re-use it

sarah - sorry you won't be able to join in, but thanks for letting me know
Beckyb

Sorry to hear you have to drop out Sarah.
Mine is done and I will send it Vonny when I send your tag swap back.

vonny

vonny

margaret - yours has not arrived yet  Sad - not sur what you want to do?
Mickie

Sounds very interesting Vonny.  Looking forward to seeing what everyone came up with.

Mickie x
margaret rorie

Vonny - that's awful!  Crying or Very sad I usually get proof of posting but can't seem to find that either so can't check up on what happened to it.  You'll just have to do the swap without me and I'll post my photos on the forum.  That is the first time any of my creations have gone missing in the post!  Margaret
Beckyb

Sorry to hear your has gone missing Margaret you never know it might turn up late.

Miriam
