Details of swap:
Find a deck of cards and alter them – write/print/stamp a prompt on one side and ‘do’ the prompt on the other! A fun, no pressure swap, with no stalking of partners, just your own interpretation of different prompts.
So what to do? Basically get an ordinary pack of playing cards, find or make up a list of journaling or art journaling prompts, place the prompt text on one side of the card, then ‘do’ the prompt on the other side of the card in your preferred style. Art Journaling or Journaling styles are acceptable. You can do the same prompts for each of your partners, or you can do different prompts - its up to you. We will be sending 2 cards to each partner so please think about time commitment when signing up as 30 cards will take a while to do! (5 partners x 3 groups =15 partners x 2 cards each = 30 cards!)Please don’t punch holes in the cards (they may not be where your partner wants them) and please don’t make them too 3D as some people may want to put them in plastic wallets or to bind the cards into a book of some kind.
Depending on numbers I will split us into groups of up to 6.
If you are interested in being in more than one group please let me know on the questionnaire. You may be in a maximum of 3 groups. Please understand that multiple groups are dependent on the number of participants and that the group size may vary slightly, but will be as even as possible.
This is open to everyone, so please only sign up if you are willing to post internationally ESPECIALLY if you want to be in multiple groups (we will be sending envelopes only, so postage shouldn’t be a problem). Also as we will only be sending envelopes, DC’s are not required – but proof of posting IS a requirement
for this swap, just in case something goes missing (don’t know how this works in other countries, but in UK you ask for proof of posting when you send at post office and you get receipt with details of the addressee, date sent etc on it). Resending won’t be required if something goes missing – but ONLY if you can provide proof of posting, otherwise you will be required to resend.
Communication is vital for a fun swap so please post in the discussion thread at least once a week. Also please respond quickly to pms from your partners and the organizers. When sending pms to the organizer/co-organizer please use the following in the subject line: Journaling Prompts sent/received/late/help etc. Please pm your group leader and your partners when you send and when you receive.
If you have any questions regarding the swap, communication etc please ask in the discussion thread or send the organizer a pm.
As organizer I reserve the right to refuse any applicant based on poor feedback.
