Around The World - Sending Away

I can't believe I shipped it off O.O
It's on it's way to Australia now and man oh man do I hope it gets back to me some day...I wrapped it in fun plaid paper =P What's more fun than getting mail? Getting mail wrapped in plaid wrapping paper XP

So yes, as soon as you (all of you participants) recieve the package please remember to send me a message and let me know, and send another when you ship it off. I'd like to keep track of it so we can sort of ballpark when it will get to the next location and so on. I don't want this one getting lost.

Alrighty, hopefully soon you all shall have your shot at this little beast, and when it gets back I can post photos of all the work ^.^

Around The World - Here We Go!

Well all the addresses have finally been confirmed and the book is ready to be shipped out. I took a few final photos of myself with it and packaged it up in some cute green plaid paper ^.^

I decided on an order that I think is fairly logical. It is going to:
Australia
New Zealand
USA (WA)
USA (CA)
Puerto Rico

USA (FL)
USA (PA)
England
England again

North Wales
Germany
Croatia

Denmark

and lastly Finland


Yup, there we go. It's all ready, set, go from here.
Now I can't stress enough, please please please please please follow through! I know masses of these little project/swap things don't work out because one person decides to be an asshole and ruin it for the rest of us >_<>

When you receive the book send me a message. When you send the book, send me a message. Try not to keep the book more than a few days, we don't want to wait a year for this you know =P So yes, I will be shipping it tomorrow, so Miss Australia, you can expect it soon ^.^

Hope everyone is well.

Around The World...or at least part of it!

Well I just have to start by thanking everyone for their interest in my "Around The World In 15 Days" project, you guys rock ^.^ All the spots have been filled up, and quite a bit quicked than I expected. I'm still trying to decide how I want to order it...I'm just not sure where I want to send it first, and what order to put it into. Should I start by sending it to the US, or should I go with Australia right off the bat? Oh well, I'll figure it out.

Participants for this project include people from:
Manitoba, Canada (Go me XD)
United States (WA, FL, CA, PA)

Puerto Rico
England (2)

Croatia

Finland

Australia

North Wales

New Zealand
Denmark

Germany


A
pretty good list, if I may say so myself ^.^

I have
sent out confirmation messages to everyone participating, so if you haven't already done so, please confirm that the address ni the message is indeed the correct one to ship to. Once this book goes out it will be extremely difficult to try and change it! Also, if for any reason you feel you may decide you no longer wish to participate, please drop out now! I will be keeping on top of things, where the book is, when it is shipped out, ect ect. Just a little warning, if you flake out and don't send the book on....I WILL MAKE IT KNOWN >_<>A few little things to add about the notebook; this is a regular thin little school notebook, not a fancy art book. So please, if you are using marker or paint or something that may bleed through your page, put a piece of paper or something between your page and the next page. I cannot stress enough that you ONLY get ONE PAGE so if you decide you don't like what you have put int he book...tough XP Either collage over it or paste a new page over top.

Remember, you can make your page whatever you like. This does not have to be an art piece, it can be a page that you just talk about you, your life, your dog, your Gramma, what you did today, a hat you bought, something pretty you seen, a random story of when you broke your toe, I don't care =P I love randomness and...well actually I think a random story about breaking your toe or something would be rather interesting haha...that's beside the point though. Make it your own, have fun with it, and remember that this does have to be shipped out, so try not to fill it with wire, metal bits, or chunks of cardboard as this may make it more difficult or expensive to ship.

The book really is just at thin notebook so it will be able to go lettermail, which is not expensive. Should be no more than a few dollars. I'd prefer you kept it no more than a week, it's only one page not a 20 foot canvas =P and other people want their shot at it.

Alright, that's about all for now.
Remember to contact me if you have any questions at all :)

Around the world in 15 pages!

I decided I want to start up a fun little project of sending a 15 page tiny notebook out in hopes that it goes to as many different places as possible. It's a thin and light notebook so it will be inexpensive to ship, which I hope will encourage people to participate. How it will work is I will need to round up 14 participants from (hopefully) all different parts of the world. I will designate 1 page of the book per person to write and decorate as they please. Once they have received the book, personalized their page they will then send it on to the next person. How do they know who the next person will be? Each page will have the address of the person to follow. When the last page is filled the final person will then send it back to me. There will be a few rules of course...
  • You will not be allowed to alter or use up any other persons page.
  • You MUST mail it to the address listed on the next page, no skipping ahead. If you do not wish to send it on to them for any reason it MUST be sent directly back to me, and I shall forward it to that person.
  • Be respectful of myself and the other participants.
  • No nudity, offensive or illegal material.
  • You must glue/stick the stamp/postal tag from the previous person's envelope onto your page.
  • The book must be sent out in a timely manner. I know you can get busy with life and whatnot, but it only takes a little time to personalize one page. If you don't think you have the time, don't enter.
Other than that I think it's pretty much do as you please. Photos, postcards, stamps, cut outs and such are encouraged just please make sure they don't increase the thickness of the book too much. Soooo no pasting in big peices of cardboard and such =P Pretty obvious though. Each person should do as much to their page to make it their own, to tell some sort of story of them. You can do that through photos, writing, whatever you would like. Write about what you love, what interests you, tell a story, tell a joke, write a poem, show your life in photos, the choice is yours! Just be creative! I think that's about it. Otherwise the only other requirement is that if you participate you follow through. Flakes are not tolerated >_<> Let me know if your interested in joining ^.^ If it all works out, perhaps I will make it an annual thing..or maybe more often than that, depending on how long this takes.

On another note...I'm looking for someone in Japan who would like to trade magazines with me...There's numerous Japanese fashion magazines that are of interest to me but they are crazy expensive to get here. Sooo I'm hoping to find a sort of pen pal from Japan who would be willing to trade with me, or even just send them out to me and I will pay the costs. I just don't feel 25$ to get one of them on ebay is worth it -_- Yes, 25$, mostly because people are charging rediculous shipping rates and are trying to make a lot of money off of them. I'm interested in magazines like Kera, Fruits, Gothic & Lolita Bible...that sort.

Well that's all for now. If your interested or know anyone who might be, please let me know by August 4th. For the book/swap thing that is =P
Let me know, kids!
