This particular swap certainly will take over. Close to 1,000 pages including my front and back covers will be spread out around the room.
I wish I could take photos of all the artwork for you. I'd get nothing else done if I did though. I will promise to get random photos here and there as I can.
But I will have a Pinterest board for them. And I think there is a way for people to add photos to my board, isn't there? Any tips? I think you just have to send me a request, but I could be wrong. I don't know if you do that through Pinterest, or if you just email me with your user name and I add you to the board.
If anyone has done this let me know if I'm close on how to do it.
Isn't this cute as a bug? It was sent to me by Elaine at Briar Rose
My front covers are DONE!!!!!!!!!!! Now onto the back ones, which are not nearly as entertaining to do. Which is why I have so few done. I need to force myself to do a few a day, and I'll be fine by the end of the month.
Then the fun begins, the first couple weeks of September will be assembly time. There will definately be more photos coming then. I love seeing the books come together, and try hard to match up pages so they look attractive with each other.
For now, I will try not to open all the packages till the due date. I love to see what comes in the mail, but I have to be very, very organized, with marking items off lists and double checking contents, and not getting anything mixed up.
So, its smarter to not open very many till they are all here and ready for me to dive into. Its hard to resist and I do peek a bit, especially at first. But once I start getting a lot of them, I pile all of the packages into tubs and slide them under tables until its time to open them up. If I open them all as they come in, I'd have total chaos, things might slide out of boxes, stacks would get knocked over.
I'll be using my self control and waiting to do it right.
Its almost impossible for me to let you know if your package is here or not. I check them off as I open them, not as they come in. As they come in, they will be stored away till later. Yours could be buried under 50 other packages, so its very hard to check. Thank you for understanding.
You can still join, if you'd like. They are due Sept. 1st.
