Random Project - Any Help Is Appreciated. :-)  
First off, thank you mod for letting me post this... :-)

I'm making this traveling notebook for my son, and one for my brother. I'm pretty much trying to find, one or a few people from each of the 50 states for this notebook (well, both notebooks). They both travel together and will be passed on to someone else in the USA so postage costs shouldn't be much when posting out again. What I'm looking at doing is having everyone put a state map postcard, or a descriptive postcard from their state - so it has the silhouette of the state with the state bird, flower, something like that... write about your state, what you like about the state, what your life is like... add photos, and just plain be creative with the books... when you've put in your entry and your happy with it - I'll give you the next address which will probably be in a neighboring state and you send it onto the next "host". You can write the same in both of the books... that's not a problem at all... :-) I've been rounding up people for the books, but they've just been sent out today to Washington (from Australia)....

So yeah, if anyone would like to help that'd be great and contact me by commenting here, email at sara.ringham@gmail.com or just message me on here and we'll go from there... if you have any questions let me know as well - it's after midnight so I'm sure I've missed out on something... thanks for helping anyone that is interested in helping me out!

I have a 10 year old and we do letterboxing stuff, so this would be fun for us.

I'm interested.

Also, I have an Aus friend living in Texas and she's into this sort of thing, too. She did a Flat Stanley project for us when she was living in Malaysia. It was really cute. She took Flat Stanley around the world.

Flat Stanley I assume is like a toyvoyager? I love doing stuff like that! It's quite exciting and fun isn't it? :-)

Great! If you don't mind, could I take down your email (or just send me an email would be fine at the above email address) and we can go from there... the books are on their way to Washington and Virginia (two separate sets of books to kind of... kill two birds with one stone so to speak)... but yeah if you could email me that'd be great... otherwise I'll keep in contact with you via lj or something... :-) It's too late to think properly lol! Thanks so much again! :-)
