21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Make Me a Journal Swap on: March 13, 2008 10:31:54 AM
Here's the awesome journal astarael sent me; it was well worth the wait for the long trip from Australia! Get ready for a picture overload (come on! she worked hard and deserves a real gallery!!  Grin)

She said it's decorated with joss papers (hope I spelled that right), which are burned for religious offerings to deities &/or ancestors in some Eastern religions.



the inside:



some of the pages are also joss papers:



she also made me a great bookmark with some Chinese or Japanese writing on it (I don't know which since I can't read either):



last but not least are three pens she sent in as a nice extra (sorry for the blurriness--stinkin camera phone!):



Thanks astarael--I really like the creative way you included my interests in this fab journal!

craftybernie: wow wow wow! you should sell journals--I'm totally blown away by your idea and skills!

Although most of you have been awesome with this, just a reminder: Please PM me and your partner both when you receive; this helps keep everyone informed and also helps your partner get the good feedback she deserves quickly...oh, and it's also part of the rules for this swap,too...*steps off soapbox*

While on the subject of feedback, I will be getting everything updated again probably tomorrow and will be posting pictures of the wonderful journal that astarael sent me!!

Take care all! (I am posting this same stuff on the original thread, so no excuses for not knowing and being sad you got "poor communication" on your feedback-ok?  Grin)

wow! All the journals are looking great! This was such a fun swap!!! Thanks for hosting it IHearTreesCry  Cheesy
I've really enjoyed organizing this swap; you all made/decorated really nice journals and I just can't wait for my partner and me to receive, too!

I definitely like the map as a cover for a journal and it's awesome that you sent the stamp you made, too.
The red journal looks really nice to the touch; what kind of fabric is that anyway, suede?
I really like the idea of a gratitude journal; that seems like a great way to keep a positive outlook on life. And the technique on that butterfly is quite unique (in a good way!).
Great journals all around so far!

wow, how did you get the flowers to be raised like that? and I really like the green paper inside that one--it's like it was made to be inside a book!

the dragonfly paper/fabric (which one?) is really neat and I think the gold button compliments it quite nicely!

I'm about going nuts waiting for my partner and myself to receive! This is the first time I've shipped internationally  Tongue

that quilted flower is really cool and great idea (to both your and your boy) for keeping the picture pockets inside--really neat!

I sent today--hip, hip, HOORAY!

Don't forget to make sure you PM me and your partner to notify that you shipped today or will need to ship late. Poor communication will be noted on feedback if it happens (booooo  Tongue)...but we only have 7 more people to PM me and there's still 8 more hours in the day where I am (*fingers crossed*; you guys have done an awesome job so far!)

made more progress on astarael's journal today...the cover is *basically* finished...just need to attached the paper to the spine and add the little extras.

I'm so pleased with how the front cover turned out--I hope she likes it too.

REMEMBER: WE ONLY HAVE THE WEEKEND LEFT FOR CRAFTING!

Please PM me and your partner if you must send late  Wink
