Swap name: Journal Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Nikkibee
Sign-up date range: 02/10/09-02/25/09
Date to send item by: First date to send 03/02/09- then every two weeks after (see below)

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No, as everyone can be arranged into groups

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES
If so, which country? UK and USA only

Age requirement?

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
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:
Righty.......

1. Each participant will produce a journal, it can be made or brought. The journal should be about A4 size.
2. Journals can be themed or not. The choice is entirely up to the first sender of that journal and a guidence should be made known in a clear way (a cover letter, notes etc)
3. All participants signed up will be divided into groups. The groups will not to be too large as this would take more time and I want everyone to concentrate on 4 good projects rather than 8 quick ones. Im thinking 4-5 people in a group.
4. On 03/02/09, (this is a monday) everyone will send their journal to the next participant (You will all recieve addresses with lots of time to spare)
5. You will have two weeks to construct and complete your spread and will send again on the 03/16/09
6. And so on, sending every second monday untill you recieve your own jounal back. I think two weeks is enough time to recieve, craft, and send again.

I will keep you all updated with how postings are going, and I hope you all do the same for me.

This swap will require serious commitment and lots of communication to keep it flowing nicely.

After much thought I have decided to keep the posting national (e.g UK participants to UK participants, USA to USA) for speed, and costs.

So, lets give it a go!!! Smiley

I'm really excited about this swap! I have know idea what to do for a theme though. Also, are there going to be any guidelines on how much we should write? I would be kind of bummed if someone only wrote a few lines.

Everyone who has sent their info in is all set up to go Smiley

Sorry, but it just helps on shipping costs! Maybe you could arrange one in your country?

I will give out more details to everyone once they are signed up but I think a two page minimum is good.

I have loads of ideas for themes.........just dont know which on to choose!

We hope you do too!!

I'm afraid there probably aren't enough Swedish journalers here on Craftster to make an all-Swedish swap... Tiny country and all that  Roll Eyes But there might be enough international interest in the future to make an international swap, there have been a few international altered journal swaps in the past after all. I will have to think about this!

Anyway, have a great swap!  Smiley

A worldwide one would be cool. I know it would be a lot more complicated (and expensive) but it would be fun!
