Swap name:
Penpal Journal Swap 3
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:
L

Sign-up date range:
08/02/07-08/09/07

Date to send item by:
First sendout 08/23/07, Second 09/10/07 (tentatively)

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages, but below 18, get permission from parents
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
The purpose of this swap is to trade journals with 2 swappers who will write in the journals and send them back and forth continuously (like penpals, only with a journal that contains all the letters).

Each swapper will send 1 journal to one partner, and recieve 1 journal from another partner(first send out>>08/23/07). Once you recieve your partner's journal, respond and send back (Tentative second send date 09/10/07, this will depend on when international swappers recieve).

After journals are sent back, the 'official' part of the swap will end and only then I'll give feedback, so everyone is free to decide if they want to keep sending.  Hopefully everyone will find someone they want to keep talking to!

**The first entries should have an about me section, but feel free to write, draw or add anything you want.  Journals can be homemade, bought, decorated or not.  Have fun with this!

I know this is sorta confusing, so here's an example of how this will be set up:
Sally, Jane, and Jill all buy one journal, decorate it and write a letter in the begginning.
Sally sends hers to Jane, Jane sends hers to Jill, Jill sends hers to Sally.
So, then Sally recieves Jills, Jane recieves Sally's and Jill recieves Janes.
Sally's partners are Jane and Jill, Janes partners are Sally and Jill, and Jills are Sally and Jane.
Then once the ladies have recieved, Sally writes back to Jill, Jane writes back to Sally, and Jill writes back to Jane.
Then Sally sends to Jill, Jane sends to Sally, Jill sends to Jane.

It's a lot like a round robin swap, but with a second part where you send back in opposite round robin order.  All things said and done, you should only have 1 journal to work on at a time, and you can end up with 2 great penpals.  I hope this clears things up, there have been a lot of questions.

you decorate as much of the journal you want including pages and cover or not if you dont want to and your partner will put his or her touch on it by decorating as well.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

Let's see if I understand this... we will be sending our own journal out twice.

a sends to b
b sends to c
c sends to a

a,b , and c receive their journals back

then

a sends to c
b sends to a
c sends to b

then a,b, and c receive them back again and have each gained 2 new friends

kinda

a sends to b
b sends to c
c sends to a

once everyone has received a journal you fill it out then send it back and so on...

so you will be sending one journal and receiving one (also getting the one you made back) and you could continue to send back and forth on your own if you want
