  • why don't we see who's still in first.... There might not be any need to keep posting it back to you if there is only a few of us still interested!! Who was after Beth? And i not being funny, as i love Beth to bits, but she's not active here :shrug: we need to get clear on this....

    I was thinking the same thing Sarah, Beth is missed greatly but I think it.has to be one rule for all, not limited to active members except the ones some of us know on Facebook, its not really fair. I'm interested in taking part in this too

  • Posting back to stardust to post on won't help as its the posting on that is the issue, can't see how posting it to stardust or to the next one on the list will be any different

  • i think that whomever is posting on this thread is obviously still interested so this thread should form the basis of a rejigged list maybe?

  • Im not very active in posting but I do read a lot. Still very interested in being involved.


    We could scan postal receipts if it helps?

  • I feel the same as Boz. I don't post much, but I pop in from time to time. The scrapbook is something I'd really love to contribute to and see everyone else's contributions, too.

  • im definitely in on this :D ive done a few travelling notebooks in the past and im always happy to play another game of it! plus it means i can do some silly doodles in it :P

  • i'd still like to be involved in this too :/ i guess it is difficult to get people to pass it on when they're busy without seeming like nagging... but perhaps as we've had so many of these threads people will be better at doing it efficiently!

    we reenact Noah's ancient drama, but in reverse, like a film running backwards, the animals exiting

  • so have we decided what we are doing yet ??


    is someone going to co-ordinate this and see if we can get it finished (sent on to the people from the original list who are still interested?) No offence to the lady who posted and said she'd like to take part but I think we shouldn't have any new participants until all the people who have wanted to do it for ages and ages have had their go... n then see if there are any pages left etc!


    This is the list from the thread that Noctula started when it resurfaced, minus the people that wanted to be involved but haven't posted to say they are still interested...



    • Starpoi
    • Colours
    • Claireaitchbee
    • Stardust
    • Sensi
    • Sarah
    • Boz
    • Kaiya
    • Beachcomber
    • Ms Vee
    • Twister
    • ElfqueenofRohan


    I propose that we get strict!!!! TWO WEEKS EACH THEN POST IT ON!!!!!!!! we could get through the list in 6 months give or take!!!


    Has the book arrived with Beth yet does anyone know??

  • Yup, I can confirm it has arrived :)

  • i was thinking would it help if there was *less* time? cos i know before lots of people posted it on after several weeks rather than the two weeks because it could be easy to think i have ages i'll do it later and then forget about it. but if you know you should do it and post it on in only a week you'd get on with it right away? but maybe that's too pressurey!!

  • yep, i think people should do their page as soon as they get it and pass it on asap. If we can get some momentum going that would be great :) when people are getting addresses from next person on list, there is the potential for people to say "actually i'm mega busy for a few weeks, go to next person on list" and then communicate that here and put yourself back on the list for a later time...

  • Hi, Please could colours send the book onto Stardust first, and then she can give it to me after, as I will be busy in 4 weeks time. (if it runs to time.. ) ta muchly.. then I will post onto Sensi. :waves:
    Oh, just one other thing, what size is the book? I could make some plans before I get it then...

  • I was starting to wonder the same. I will nudge Beth.

  • It arrived with her and I've messaged her on Facebook so hopefully it will be winging its way to the next person shortly.

  • I have moved house several times since this, so maybe my address should be checked. Also, I have to move between now and 6 weeks and as yet have nowhere to go, so maybe it could go to Clare HB first?

  • Still with starpoi. I nudged her recently but can renudge if necessary.

  • could you please...at this rate my babies will be left home all growed up before it gets here...been over 2 months since she received it after all :)

  • definitely think a quick turnaround is in order - keep some energy in the book and not worry about it being a *masterpiece*

  • Claire, are you going to be at the rollrights? I am passing through Bristol this week, so theoretically I could pick it up, take it over to HBs where we both do our entries, then pass it on to you in person.


    Just an idea, but could potentially shift the list on pretty quickly.

  • Done more chasing. I'm collecting it in person on Friday and I'll send it straight out next week.

  • I think I'm going to bow out of this now. I'm pretty close to the end of the list anyway so the chances of it ever reaching me are slim I reckon. I'll look forward to seeing the finished article when everyone else has had their way with it though :thumbup:.
