Some changes...and some new kids

Hiya All.....
To balance it out a little more i have shuffled the list around a little. Hope everyone is cool with this. So now the order will be:

Rebekah- Australia
Leeza- New Jersey, USA
Al McDermid [Urban convert]- Tokyo, Japan
Lee- South Carolina, USA
Miragee-Taipei, Taiwan
Dee- Texas, USA
Angela- Washington, USA
ValGalArt- California, USA
Scott- Italy
The Crafty Girl- Colorado, USA
Rock-Paper-Scissors- LA, USA
Bonojerry- NY, USA
Cathy, UK
Toni Kelly- Pennsylvania, USA
Cindy- Virginia, USA
Vicci- California, USA
Back to Bek in Oz....
You might notice a couple new names from the original email I sent around, namely Cathy & Steve, both from the UK. We welcome them to the neighbourhood & look forward to seeing their work!
A few people have contacted me to ask if the book is making one trip through this list or if it is being sent a few times. My thoughts are that if it makes it way all the way through and back to me, not do we have a fantastic worldwide postal system, but why not give it another tour!
what do you think? Maybe if we do send it out again, we can send it through the list in reverse order, or in a completely new order?
Page Limit:
as for how many pages each person has, what if we set a limit of say 7 pages? This will allow each of us plenty of space to add our brilliant ideas and images [!] whilst making sure that there is enough room for everyone. There are 100 pages in the book- is seven too few or too many??
Time frame-
Chatting to Toni [well, via email!] she suggested we set a turn around time of 3 weeks from when you receive the journal to when you send it on to the next in line. This would give everyone an idea of when they can expect to see the book, as well as keeping momentum- does this sound good?
Any other ideas or suggestions about how best to go about this project? be sure to let us know!
Have a great weekend folks [remember here in Oz, we're a day infront of you so its Friday here!]
oh, and one last thing [i promise!] Toni had another brilliant idea, how about each page is scanned on to a CD for everyone to be able to keep?! great huh!
[Maybe each of us could scan our entries before we send it on, just in case, heaven forbid the journal got lost....]
