Angela Sunshine (AngelaSunshine) Sign up here for swap #18. This round is a maker's choice round. Choose any YA book you'd like.

Sign ups will end on October 1st.
Bookmarks will ship on October 15th.
Bookmarks will be opened on October 30th.

These are the rules:

1. You make or buy a bookmark themed around your choice of a YA book (but handmade is way cool!)
2. You are responsible for shipping your bookmark to your swap person at your own expense NO LATER THAN SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH! Be prepared to possibly send it out of the country.
3. Have fun and be creative!!! How you represent your book on your bookmark is totally and completely up to you.
4. Open your new bookmark as a group on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30TH!
5. Take a picture of the bookmark you receive to share with the group!

The goal is pretty much to just share a book you like in an unique way. Feel free to message me your address in the meantime, I will hang onto it and confirm your spot in the swap here.

That would be the overseas one, eh?


message 39: by Amy (new)

Amy | 1931 comments Yup. I wrote the address just like you emailed it to me and it came back.


message 40: by vicki_girl (new)

vicki_girl | 157 comments So are we opening tomorrow (Oct 30 like in the title of the thread)?

I'm asking 'cause don't we usually go for the last day of the month?

Open them guys! We use the 1st, 15th, and 30th as the dates to make life easy. I left my envelope at work... :(

Boo. Well, I contacted her (or tried) a few times and haven't gotten any response, so I think the person she was shipping to is going to be disappointed as well. I sent a replacement already, otherwise I would have just had you send it to her!


message 43: by vicki_girl (new)

vicki_girl | 157 comments Just opened mine from Cristen! It's for Incarceron by Catherine Fisher. I'll get some pictures up soon. :)
