Knock, knock!

Hello artists,

I thought I should introduce myself. I don't think I know any of you...

I'm Zaza, a.k.a. szaza or Samantha— but not Sam! I'll be your friendly neighbourhood Exchange Moderator. What does this mean? From time to time I will be performing a pulse check to see how your progress is going. Do you need some encouragement? Do hoarders need hounding? I will also pull the plug if you feel your exchange needs to go gently into that good night.

I have read your posts and comments, and it seems that a number of you are feeling frustrated and or guilty about the way this exchange is moving. I also noticed some you are parents now— congratulations! Now, obviously life and new babies takes precedence over exchanges, but let's come to an agreement on the life of this exchange. Are we planning on continuing? There is no shame in wanting or needing to bow out! If you can't continue, that's ok— just let everyone know so we can figure out the next steps.

So what say you, 45? Is it over, or still a go?

What should we do?

I feel like I've totally dropped the ball on this project. :( There's probably a few artists out there feeling the same...too many projects on the go,new babies, job changes, commissions, deadlines, too many life circumstances taking up free time (free time? what is that elusive beast again? I haven't seen him in a while) etc.

There's also that weird feeling I never thought I'd experience, but I stall and stall and stall when thinking about drawing something in someone else's moly. I know it's supposed to be fun and spontaneous and sketchy, but still I hesitate.

My own sketchbooks are full of scratches and doodles and spirals and mishmashes of colour and ideas. These little black books aren't the Sistine Chapel, but when it comes to someone else's moly, it certainly feels like it...doesn't it?

Shall we call it a day on this project? If we have a moly that is not our own should we mail it back to the original owner and call it a day? Should we continue the project? What do you think we should do?

I am the guilty one

Mathilda, I am the guilty one. I have kept your Molly on my bookshelf for far too long. It was so warm and comfortable there. But now I will set it free. Do you want it back or shall I send it to the next person on the list?

Have not seen of any activity here for a long time!
Wondering who's got my moly...?
