Get This Party Started

We're at 14 members (sure to be 15 by the week's end) so I thought we could post some basic swap info.


Feel free to get started in your own book drawing a self portrait and creating some type of sign in page if you'd like. For those of you trying a moly exchange for the first time, check out some of the other groups. The sign in pages are getting to be miniature works of art, too!


Let's set our first mailing goal for July 1st. Please post a comment here or in the chat box if you don't think you can make that deadline. As soon as we have our 15th member we can confirm the rotation (99% sure it will be the person who is directly below you). Those of you that have swapped before, if you know of existing problems or delays between specific countries, can you let me know so we can jiggle the order a bit? I tried to keep things by country to save on shipping costs and time delays.


In the meantime, you may want to work on uploading some photos and or video and then make sure everyone here knows where to find them. We also mentioned including some images in the pocket of the moly for those who may not be able to print things out or who don't enjoy drawing from a screen.


Can't wait to see what this amazing group of artists will come up with. Please be in touch here and let us know.

Excellent work, Melissa. thatnks for the concise instruction. This is going to be very cool.

My Moly_X experience shows that mail from Russia easily goes to Israel)) but on the other hand-I also sent Moo cards almost all over the world with no problems.

I'm going to be in Vanuatu from 20 June to 11 July, and out of general post/email/net range so I probably won't make the first rotation. If that changes (i.e. I get the book started and ready to go by Thursday) I will let you know, but it probably won't.

Tanudel,
The first round is just drawing your self-portrait and then shipping to the next person. If you finish before you go, I can send you the address of your person, otherwise, like Marty said, you may have to skip and catch up later.

Oh and Netherlands - US is VERY slow (US - NL is no problem).

Andrea said...

I would like to participate, if you still have a spot.

Thanks Melissa, this is very clear and suits me fine. I bought my Japanese moly in Sydney when I was there recently so I'm ready to go. I feel like the cabbage in the corner of this portrait party because I think I'm the oldest. But I'm excited and looking forward to it.

I have my photos in the invite only section on Flickr... should I wait to get email addresses I can't seem to post a link here that works.

szaza said...

Now how do you make your photos invite only? Is it by checking the private box on the uploading?
