Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Banga
Sign-up date range: Until we have 6 people
Date to send item by: 1st mailing date - April 6th, then every 2 weeks after that.

Limited to a certain number of people?: 6

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?
YES
If so, which country?Yes...the US (to keep the shipping moving)
All ages allowed? yes

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: yes
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: yes
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: yes
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: yes

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: yes
- Has posted at least 15 times: yes
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: yes
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: yes
- Does not have any negative feedback: yes

Details of swap:
This swap is for a "round robin" style journal swap. 6 of us will have blank 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 2 weeks so we'll have about 1 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. You are welcome to choose a theme for your book or not, so please include a letter that describes your theme, or favorite things, or not! If you want a book full of surprises, that's cool, too! (Check out the previous rounds of this swap if you want more ideas about themes!)

Please note that this swap requires a serious commitment! It will take place over a longer period of time than most swaps, so please be sure to check your schedule for the next 12ish weeks before signing up! Since this swap is only open to 6 craftsters, spots will go to the first 6 who PM me and who also have good swap records. (This is due to the time and effort needed for this swap; a flaker would be devestating in this kind of ring!) If more than 6 ppl, sign up, we will try to do another ring with a co-organizer, but this isn't guaranteed!

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.

I'm excited...this is the first swap I've joined this year (needed a bit of a break)...now I just have to decide on whether I want to alter a journal or make one from scratch, and whether I want a theme or a bunch of surprises, and and and...

Must go think!

This sounds cool, but I don't think I can do it, what with graduation and getting ready for college.  Undecided

TripleThreads-I just noticed that you and orange_sunset are neighbors. Are you guys already friends? Cause that would be too wierd of a coincidence!

Now that we are full, I'll be sending addresses out to all of you shortly, so get thinking about themes, etc! I was inspired last night when flipping the TV channels! I happened upon that cheesy "Brother's grimm" movie with Heath Ledger and Matt Damon. It was crap, but it got me thinking. I have decided to do a 'dark fairy tales' themed book, so I hope you all can find some inspiration in that!

Ok, you should all have PM's including the name and address of the person to whom you will send your books! Please let me know if you didn't get that information! I'm off to do page one!
