Hi All,
My book is back safe and sound (thanks Claire) with no new entries :(

Has this group died? Anyone still interested?

Safe and Happy New Year!

Hellllooooooo...............Anybody out there?..........

This is pretty disappointing, I was really excited about this exchange. What happened people?! I don't think I even saw one entry in my book.
I still really love this idea, I hope to get my book soon, Claire said she would mail it back a few weeks ago.
Who's still in? Even if it is a small group?
Hey Scoach - did you ever get your book back?

Creative Hiatus...

Hey guys n' Gals... I am back from our sailing trip and unfortunately I STILL didn't get Jen and Scoach's moleys done. I think I have to be honest with myself... my right brain wants a rest to nurture more left brain activities. If I can't muster up enough creative juices to do them when I have 6 weeks of chilling ocean time then I don't know how I ever will. I sadly think it is time for me to shut down my involvement in these exchanges... my plate is full enough, and I really enjoyed doing 'nothing' (and would love to spend more time doing it)! I just don't like the feeling that they are something I HAVE to do, amongst all my other "have to do's"... Perhaps if they cruised along a little quicker, the energy may have stayed... but mine has fizzled!

Jen and Scoach: Would you like me to forward both of these down the line or send them back to you?

Who has mine? I can send you my address if you just want to send it back to me...

Sorry guys... hope you can still keep it going!

2 Moleys Arrived

Great news: in the mail yesterday, Claire's and Stacey's moleskines arrived in the mail after their visit to Mexico. They are amazing looking. I will be pondering the elements for Claire. Stacey, since my wife teaches college forensics, there might be some strange things added to the crime-scene-notebook.

Away for the summer...

Hey guys n' gals... I am takin' off sailing for the summer so don't worry about sending me any moleys until September. It has been such a busy time so I haven't had a chance to finish up Scoach and Jenn's but once I am on the boat I will have OOOODLES of time to finish them off and send them on!

Have a great summer!

I'm Back

Hi Everyone.

We are back from South Africa, and I would love to have a book to work in. It's been about 6 months now, so I can't wait to receive the Molys from Elvia. Best wishes as we continue the project, and good luck to Jenn as she moves to Germany.

Hey Fellow Moly_x_14er's,

I'm Germany! It's an awesome opportunity that is way to good to pass up. I would really love to stay with this group, but understand if this move throws too big of a wrench in the system. I hope to have an address sometime in July, and I move at the end of August. Think of it as adding another layer of international to this international moleskine exchange ;)

Let me know your thoughts. I totally understand if you guys want to vote me off the island.

Will share more info as it becomes available.

Done :)

I am now done with the moleskines. Here are the pics for you to see. I had a lot of fun doing them even though I had a hard time thinking what to do in each one. Sorry for the tardiness. I will be sending them to Scoach tomorrow first thing in the morning.

Is anyone still out there??

It has been a while since there have been any updates on our exchange. Is there anyone still out there who is participating in the group? I haven't had a book since I mailed off Elvia's in March. I know that Jenn had dropped out of the group but wanted to see if anyone else was still interested in participating? Please leave a comment and let me know what's going on.

P.S. If I haven't heard from anyone in a few days I will just send an email. I would like to find out where our group stands and where the molys are. =O)

Status update....

Working on my last entry in Elvia's book - should be done this week. Moly should be in the mail to Elvia by Friday or Saturday.
How is everyone else?

Package in Mexico

Eventhough my day is really sad because Corey Haim died, (I was a big fan when I was young) I am very excited because I got a package from Stacey with 2 moleskines inside! I will be working on them this week, as soon as I have something I will be posting again.

Wednesday, March 3, 2010


Guess what arrived in the mail today?????


Do you want me to continue in them and send them to Stacey, or send them back to you?

Thank you Debbie.

Back in Business

Here is attempt #2. I added a page about our upcoming soccer, missions trip to South Africa in June. I plan on filling an entire notebook with sketches and watercolors while in the country. 4 of my players are art majors but their focus is digital. Still, should be fun with my wife and 19 college soccer players.

Finger's Crossed

I just mailed Debbie a large envelope, pre-addressed, and all postage paid to try to get back our Molys. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

On a brighter note, I have almost finished recreating my travel journal (yes, I kept the same theme). It will be ready to go in the mail early next week, and I can't wait to see what you all put on the pages.

Best Wishes.

Moleskine Exchange x14: Fish (last one)

The final fish for my entry in Elvia's Moley... am I still sending to you Stacey? Are you ready for another book?

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

New beginnings...

Going forward - it looks like Claire, Scoach, Jenn, Elvia and I will be continuing on with the group. Allyson has elected to quite the group and I think it is a concensus that Debbie is no longer a part of the group. Judging from the 'who has who's book?' list on the right hand side of the blog - it would appear that Allyson's, Jennifer's, and Scoach's books are missing. Attempts to contact Debbie to get any of these books back have gone unanswered. From the previous post - Jenn and Scoach have decided to start new books, I have both mine and Claire's books (which I will now be sending to Elvia) and Claire has Elvia's book.

I am glad to see that the majority of us are willing to continue. Prior to joining a moly_x group I had read stories on the blog about books disappearing and people stalling a group - it is crazy that that happens, but I feel that those of us who remain form a good group. When you join a group you take your chances - Jenn and I are both in another group together that has been really successful and is taking on 3 new members in the second rotation our sketchbooks. Jenn and Scoach - I am sorry that your books disappeared, but am glad you both decided to keep going.

Starting Over

Checking everyone's postings, and seeing that my book might be lost for good is discouraging. I'm not sure who would be up for it, but I would be willing to start over with Claire, Jennifer and anyone who is truly interested. If you would like to end it, that's OK but sad to me as I really would like to be in an exchange with Claire and Jennifer. Let me know what you think so that I can buy another watercolor Moly and change my theme to Birds.

... and another Fish for Elvia

I will be sad to see this one go...

Elvia's Fish Moley - 2 of 4

Here are two of my entries for Elvia's Moley... I know there are 2 more to do, but I just thought it would be to see some more entries in this blog ;)

So, now what?

Has Allyson posted anything recently... who has her book, and does she still have Staceys? I have lost track... So far we know that Elvia, Jennifer, Scoach, Debbie and myself are the only ones with books actually in transit according to the posts? Jennifer and Scoach's have gone a.w.o.l with Debbie... this is not looking too promising. I am keen to continue as I have already started working in Elvia's book (just have one more to do). What should we do here folks. I supposed for the sake of the exchange we need to ASSUME that Debbie is no longer with us, and the books are gone. I am keen to help postage to get them back, but if she hasn't sent then yet, with all the nagging then I am not keeping my hopes to high. Hopefully Allyson will touch base too, otherwise I think we should just start fresh, but only with the people that are actively participating. Perhaps put a call out in the flickr group to recruit replacements. What do you think?

I put a who has who's book in the sidebar so please update it when you get/send a book... preferably with a date to so we know how long they have been sitting around or whether they are in transit!

What is happening gang?

Hey all... Happy New Year!

Let's start off the year by finding out what the heck is going on here. Where are all the books? Are they even moving? I have not received one and it seems a few of them are still living with Debbie, who hasn't communicated in months. We only seem to get word of what she is doing, but no actual confirmation. I am not really usually one to nag, but it seems like this group is having some serious issues getting off the ground. I love the entries we've seen so far, but aside from Jennifer and Scoach's second entries, there hasn't been any (I haven't even received any books yet), only the first ones. This group started in August... 5 months ago. Is everyone even still interested? I am keen to keep going, but not if books are going a.w.o.l. on people... that just isn't cool.

What's up? Who has what? What is their status (ie. done, sent and when, not even started, at the bottom of the junk pile)?

Claire - Elvia's (as of Jan 15) YAY!
Stacey - Claire's
Allyson -
Elvia - none, really interested in continuing with other moleskines.
Scoach - none
Jennifer - none,
Debbie - Her's, Jennifer's, and Scoach's?

Thanks all of you who are communicating regularly... again, I really am not a naggy person but I am just really busy (as I am sure you all are too) and really don't want to put the effort in and continue if people aren't communicating or participating in this as I would rather put my effort in the other exchanges that seem to be more active.

Cheers. :)
