2011-07-19 [Ms. Steel]: Why hellooo!
2011-07-20 [Kiddalee]: Hooray! We're full! And it looks like I'll be able to learn more art and craft techniques by the time we are assigned partners. :-P
2011-07-29 [Blaithin]: Oh I really like this idea! I'll definitely sign up for the next round! I have a secret bookmark fetish :x
2011-08-06 [Kiddalee]: I have a book fetish >.>
2011-08-19 [PhoenixSilverDark]: This is a wonderful project. It reminds me of an art exchange I participated in called The Change Exchange. It would be interesting if to accompany the digital archive you had an art show of exchanged bookmarks.
2011-09-03 [pixish]: I'll leave the previous round there in case people still haven't gotten their bookmarks :p
I'll be putting up the next 'exchange' list this afternoon with the new sign ups :)
2011-09-03 [SilverFire]: So you don't have any provision in place to make sure that everyone who makes a bookmark actually gets one? Are you going to let people who failed to send their bookmark enter later rounds? According to that list there are four people who haven't received their bookmark, six who have. That's not a great success rate. <_<
Sorry to make such a negative comment, but I kinda' feel that's something that needs to be addressed. ._.;;
2011-09-03 [Linderel]: Nio sent me mine, it just never arrived. >_<
2011-09-03 [Nioniel]: Twice now, actually. :/
2011-09-03 [Linderel]: That's just weird, that is.
2011-09-03 [Nioniel]: Post here has been odd lately. Hubby sends stuff out from his online store and has filed no less than 5 complaints with the postal service in the last two months about post not arriving to customers. When I've got the extra money, I'll send it insured (if I can to where you are). I wish I could send with delivery-confi
2011-09-05 [Kiddalee]: Well well. I chose a good time to log in. I'd better get going on mine.
2011-09-09 [pixish]: Do what you want, I don't really have time to police everyone and chase up people who haven't done it. It's just something fun, not a competition. I think at least 2 bookmarks have gone missing in the mail. I'm not sure if [nehirwen] received one in the mail but there is a picture of it in the gallery.
Alternatively everyone could just add their names to a list and people can just pick someone to make a bookmark for, that way everyone does it all themselves.
2011-09-09 [pixish]: Or we could have digital files only, that way people could upload and printing could be the receiver's responsibility
2011-09-09 [SilverFire]: I don't see how making sure everyone who makes something actually gets something in return suddenly turns it into a competition. Ensuring everyone gets a bookmark is just ensuring that it IS fun for everyone. People tend to not find it quite so fun if they never get anything.
"I don't really have time to police everyone and chase up people who haven't done it." Then with all due respect, maybe you just don't actually have time to run it? :/ When I run the Secret Santa each year I make sure everyone who makes a present gets a present in return. I have a small group of volunteers, including myself, who are all prepared to make a second entry to ensure that no one is left out, and anyone who fails to submit their entry is barred from entering the next year.
If doing it digitally only is the best way to ensure more people get their bookmark, then go for it.
2011-09-09 [pixish]: Ok then, I don't have time to run it. Whoever wants it, feel free.
2011-09-15 [Mortified Penguin]: I would prefer it not be digital, as I'm temporarily out of printers and printer paper and the patience to deal with my lack of printing necessities.
Also, what should I do when I finish my bookmark and have it ready to ship?
2011-09-20 [Anvikit]: send it to me!!.. I mean.. Contact [Kiddalee] and get contact information? And send it to her?
I didn't realize the new session was up until just now! The new list was hidden under the old list.. :P That's what I get for not being very attentive! *gets busy*
2011-09-20 [Linderel]: Oh dear. :O *puts thinking cap on*
2011-09-23 [pixish]: Mort - contact who you're supposed to be sending it to and get their details :p
2011-09-29 [The Dizzy Raven]: ok well :) I'll see what i can do for mine ^_^
