Hello Everyone!!!

Hello, I have been assigned to help moderate (a moly mentor if you will) your fantastic moly group along it's journey... if anyone has questions, needs help in any way (doing laundry excluded) please let me know. Feel free to contact me on my flickr page:
Hopefully books are rotating once a month to keep the flow of the group going!!!
Good luck everyone!!!

So looks like first mail out is coming up fast!!!! Is everyone on track... I have found it's best for everyone to mail out at the same time to keep the flow of books moving and don't forget to let the group know when you have received a book from someone... keep all the great post and work coming!!!!

September 1st - deadline

So, it looks like the majority of us are in agreement that September 1st will be out deadline for finishing up our first entries. We seem to have gotten off to a bit of a slow start but maybe we can pick up now and get a good momentum going.

My Moly issues have finally gotten worked out and I am ready now with my theme and blank moly and loads of ideas. Just as a bit of a teaser...I am going with a Dia de los Muertos theme and I can't wait to see how it turns out. I will try to remember to take some progress pictures and post them when I get a chance.

Dana's intro and first entry!

Hello group, I am back from vacation and wanted to take a quick minute to introduce myself, reveal my theme, and post a progress shot of what I have done so far!

First things first, my name is Dana Bower, I live in Perrysburg, Ohio where I currently run my own graphic design company. I have only been out of college for a year so I have only had the opportunity to work with a number of clients, but my business is doing well and I hope to have a company website launched by January 1st 2011.

My theme for this moleskine is Pirates! The school I went to since kindergarten actually had the pirate as its mascot, and when I was in high school, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies first came out, so this theme seemed to fit well with me.

Check out my progress shot for now, hopefully a more finished one later this week and a completed entry early next week!
