Details of swap:
This swap is for a "round robin" style journal swap. A small group (6 at most) of us will have journals that we send around to each other. Each person is to decorate a 2 page spread in the journal and then mail it on to the next person. We will mail out every 3 weeks so we'll have about 2 and a half weeks to craft.

We will first get our books and decorate the first page ourselves. You can do the cover as well if you want.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

AFTER PEOPLE HAVE SIGNED UP AND BEEN APPROVED, LIST THE PARTICIPANTS HERE AND WHO IS SENDING TO WHOM:

1) Amaryllisroze
2) Rackycoo
3) Stifflersmom
4) Katxena
5) GoatGoddess
6) Kaesea

The way the mailing will work is just like the list shows...we keep mailing every 3 weeks until we have our books back.

Wow....you guys are FAST!  Shocked

We've got our 6!

Let's make sure to use this thread so we can update each other on our progress...

Remember, the first date to mail is January 31st...so decided on what you want to use for your journal and decorate the first page in it. You can also decorate the covers if you like, and put in something like an 'artist sign in sheet' so that we will have a record of who had your book and when they had it.

I'm going to mount some small vellum envelopes inside the covers and put a piece of card stock in each one so everyone's "signature" will have a place of its own.

EDITED TO ADD MAILING SCHEDULE

1st mail - January 31st. This is when you mail out your book with the first page decorated.
2nd mail - February 21
3rd mail - March 14
4th mail - April 4
5th mail - April 25
Final mail May 16 (this is when your book is mailed back to you)

Once we have the books back, we can start the gallery.
This is going to be so cool!

Let me know if I missed anything.

Woooot! I'm so happy to get started on this! I'm planning on either sending out a plain moleskin journal, or making a book with pockets & removeable pages. I haven't decided yet. Cheesy

I'm probably going to go with a watercolor field book that has hard covers. Its spiral bound and has nice, hefty paper. The spiral wire is pretty good sized too, so you all can stuff it full of crafty goodness!

Going out at lunch to look around and see what I can find - I have a 40% off coupon at Joanne's and Hobby Lobby plus a gift cerf. at half price books

hobby lobby has a sale (as always - thankfully) and a internet 40% off coupon this week - JoAnn's will honor the internet coupon too.

I LOVE Hobby Lobby coupons! I print them out every week, just in case I happen to run past there and find something I can't live without.

Are you serious? Like they'd honor a Hobby Lobby coupon?

I can never manage to find the Michael's coupons here for some reason.
