Details of swap:

This swap is for all of us who have joined the sketchbook project and want to share the love. For this swap you will send one or two partners a envelope full of paper bits and any other material that could be used to complete her sketchbook. More importantly you will also share some artwork made by you for her to use in her sketchbook as well. So small drawings, paintings, stampings etc. The receiver is under no obligation to use the art work sent to her if she does not wish to do so. Nor is she under any obligation to give artist credit for the work that you share with her. This is about sharing in a large wonderful art project and showing fellow Craftsters love and support as we all enjoy the same adventure.

You will have a choice of either a large (business size manila envelope or a smaller 4x9 envelope. You will also have the choice of one or two partners.
Regardless of number of partners or size, I ask that you put your heart into what you are sending. All of us that are in this project are putting a lot of thought and love into it. This is not just a paper swap. Smiley

This will be my first time organizing a swap so I ask that if there is anything at all that you need or I can improve on that you feel free to write to me at anytime during the swap.

I would also ask that you follow three request.
You write to your partner once a week.
You interact in the swap thread at least once a week
You be mindful of the previous posting in the thread and respond to it if possible before posting your own. In other words, be mindful that there are folks talking in the thread and make sure no one is getting ignored during the chatting. Smiley

I'm not great at drawing, but I have a billion stamps I could use and I could also make background papers that could be glued into the books. Would that be something anyone would be interested in?

Okay so i was super excited for this before, but now im a bit intimedated. I collect a lot of a street art and stickers and love to pick up lost notes and drawings. So i thought i could send a bunch of things like that but im not sure if thats considerd journal materials or related. I mean, thats what my journals are filled with, but i dont actually go out and buy pretty scrapbooking and journaling paper.

That's the kind of thing I like. I think everyone is looking for unique things to go into their journals. Or at least I am.

aroze, I think stamps and background papers are good, too.

Tero, correct me if I'm wrong. I don't want to hijack your swap.  Cheesy
