Hello everyone!

This is the other coordinator for the project, Jillian. I'm happy to say that we're finally going to get the book sent to the first person; hunkydory is putting the finishing touches on her pages and the book will go out Wednesday at the latest.

Remember to let us know when you receive the book for your turn, so we can keep track of it and make sure the postal system doesn't eat it. Also remember to post pictures -- in progress pictures are great, especially if you want critique while working on it, and we definitely want to see pictures of your finished pages.

I think this is going to be a fun, meaningful, and absolutely fantastic project, and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! After the book has made its rounds I get to have fun with the final couple of pages; what happens to it after that is still being considered. Most likely we will send it to Patrick; if, for some reason, we cannot do that, we will figure out what to do with it as a community.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact either me or hunkydory, or send an e-mail to pigeonpostmaster@gmail.com.  We'll most likely get back to you within twenty-four hours.

Thank  you to everyone who signed up to work on this, and to everyone who is watching. You guys are amazing. :)

Forgive me if I'm not supposed to be posting in this journal, but I'd just like to thank hunkydory for purchasing the book and sharing this idea with all of us. It's such a creative concept and even if Patrick never sees it, I'm sure he'd really, really appreciate the thought and effort. What better way to show our love than to create something unique and beautiful, just like him ;o) it's going to be wonderful, I just know it. Anyway, sorry to blabber on, I'm just so excited about it and I know everyone else is as equally thrilled to get started as I am! So again, thank you for the idea and for executing the journal with such care and detail, it's something special that I'm proud to be a part of!

I hate calling them applications, because it's not as if I wasn't going to let you in on this, but, yes, they are closed. We have 17 people signed up, and that is more than enough. Please all who have signed up, go check your inboxes for an email from me (spiteful.lime[at]gmail.com), and if there are any errors in your info reply with the corrections. If you haven't gotten an email from me, check your junk filter, and if it's not there, comment here and let me know, because I could have made a mistake. I promise everyone was accepted. xD

On to my next point, suthnoli  pointed out to me, that in the UK, one pound is not a bill, it is a coin (it's been almost two years since I've been there). I don't want anyone to risk putting coins in our envelope, only to have them stolen. I have two questions. Is it very expensive to send a small package to another country in Europe? I'm assuming it would cost about the same as sending a package to another state or Canada, here in the US. Let me know?

If so, I'm considering just dropping the whole "put a few bucks/quid/etc in the package" idea, and instead have everyone pay for their own postage depending on their continent, save the lucky couple that get to send overseas, and in that case, I will just send those people the money to pay for it via Paypal. It is my project, after all. I think that would eliminate a lot of confusion and stress.

If all else fails, someone could start a Europe version of this idea, and I could just keep my book in the Americas.

So it seems we are in a bit of a predicament. I thought that the book I picked up would be perfect, it's small and light. I figured that instead of let you guys glue pages, I would just do it myself to make sure we had enough pages. Turns out with the number of people we have signing up, it will only be possible for each of us to alter two pages, instead of four. I've got about 45 alterable pages in it now. Do you guys like this book enough to sacrifice page or two each, or shall I go find a different book? Do you want to claim the amount of pages you would like to do beforehand, and I'll keep a record of it?

I'm going through applications at this very moment. I've got a lot of people! I think 15 by now. I'm so excited.
