Okay, we are on again.
I LOVED doing this swap the first time around, and have decided to reinvigorate it
And the fact that I am usually a non-journaller and a non-paperworker, and I'm dying for a round 2 on this swap should tell you something about how much fun it is.
I am blatantly stealing most of the words below, and probably the swap idea itself from Dizzerspinninround.

In this swap you will be writing in a journal for one month and sending the journal to your partner. You will be journalling the month of May, natch.
You are encouraged to make your own journal, but it is definitely not necessary, you can recreate a pre-existing journal if you so desire.
This journal should really express who you are, and not just in words, feel free to include photos, ticket stubs, crafty projects, drawings, poetry, short stories, jokes, whatever!
You MUST write something for each day, even if it's just a few sentences. Your entries don't have to be novel length, but they do need to be of substance. You can even include drawings and poetry (make it a mini zine about you if you want!).
You and your partner will discuss how personal you wish to be, if you didn't already specify in the questionnaire.
You are ALSO required to send a small crafted item along with the journal. Make it a craft you are super good at, to display your skills, or try your hand at a new craft, so long as you make sure you keep it a small (unless you and your partner discuss otherwise). A small is an item that takes you 2 hours or less to craft. Items such as earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks are considered smalls for different people of different skill levels.
Just to prevent any hand-wringing and angsting....
I'm in Australia - I'll be in a different timezone to most of the rest of you. A reply to a question might seem to take longer than you might expect - especially if you send a PM while I'm asleep or working. I WILL endeavour to respond to every PM sent/question asked within 48 hrs of it being sent. 'Kay??QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
