Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Lissa
Sign-up date range: Today through Monday 6/21/04...two weeks.
Date to send item by: First Journal sent 6/28/04
Limited to a certain number of people?: limited to 6 (including me) due to time for the journals to make it home
Non-U.S. participants allowed? if we are able to find people to ship out of the US.
All ages allowed? I think this should be 18 and up due to some content that may end up inthe journals. If you don't think this is okay please feel free to discuss.
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: Yup
Details of swap:
Each member in the swap will either make or buy a bound journal that will fit into a 5x7 envelope and have enough pages for each of the 6 swappers to fill at least 3-5 pages. Please no staples as the journal must be able to handle the sometimes aggressive hands of the post office. Each journal will be mailed in a circle with you mailing each journal to the same person. When you receive a journal you will write a few entires in 3-5 of the pages. This can mean writing about your day, a current issue you are dealing with, poetry, drawing a picture, describing a strange dream and so on. Be creative and try to refrain from too much introductory information. For example if you are explaining a dream and it has to do with appraoching a birthday, explain when your b-day is but don't add anything that isn't vital to know kind of thing. Be sure to leave the journal with about 3-5 blank pages, no more, no less, for the person it belongs to write a few entries when it returns home to them. This is sorta like the 1000 journals thing, but much smaller and more orginized. You will be shipping to your partner 6 times every two weeks so it is a long term commitment but the postage won't be too expensive as the books are light in weight.
