*****2/5/08 update:  WE HAVE REACHED OUR MAX, SO SWAP SIGNS-UP ARE NOW CLOSED.  SORRY!!!***** 

since i had tremendous fun participating in danielle’s very recent itty bitty white book swap & i just absolutely adore my copy of the itty bitty book,  i’m inspired to host a similar one too.  (many thanks danielle for the inspiration!!! J).  who would’ve thunk that this lil book of eye candy would have me craving for more?  

i decided to limit the swap to a max of 30 artists.  that seems to be a manageable amount for me. the theme will be  “robin’s egg blue”. sign-up is by february 14, 2008 (or when we’ve reached 30 participants, whichever comes first). pls. email me your full name, e- & snail mail addies to follow_your_bliss07@hotmail.com.

the 411:what you will be creating is 1 (one) original page front, which you will then make quality color laser copies (exact # of copies tba after sign- up deadline) at your local office supply store (e.g., office max, office depot, staples, etc) at 100% the size.   just ask the office supply folks to scan your original page & then have them fit multiples to a page when copying (about 6 will reasonably fit on a standard 8.5 x 11 cardstock paper).

your pages (original & color copies) need to measure 2.75″ x 3.5″ to account for binding which will occur on the LEFT margin of the front of your page.  so, in other words, please leave approx. ¼ inch margin on the left side of your page free of embellishments.  you may add ANY type of (glitter, buttons, beads, ribbon, lace,  etc., etc.) and  as many or as little embellishments anywhere to the RIGHT of  your pages.  (otherwise, i won’t be able to bind your page properly if they are placed too close to the ¼ inch margin on the left side of the page).rebibswap2.jpg    

now what about the backs of the copies?  well, you don’t have to be as elaborate as the front…simply decorate using some nice background paper, stamped/photocopy image, etc.  on the back of your page, please include your name & contact info.  since this is the back of the page, try to stay LEFT of the page (to allow for binding) or your info will be cut off. 

once you complete all of the above, you will send your embellished copies to me (but keep your original), etc.  DUE date is  march 18, 2008 and must include: total # of pages tba, a large self- addressed return label, and $6 (us) or $8 (international) cash or paypal (for front/back covers, binding, and return costs).  if using paypal, email me & i will send you my paypal email addy. J

when sign-up closes, i will let you know the exact number of copies to make.  should you have any questions or concerns, please email me at follow_your_bliss07@hotmail.com.

i am uber excited to get this started & i hope you will be too! J
