Swap name: Penpal Journal Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: boarderchic
Sign-up date range: 11/25/05 - 12/22/05
Date to send item by: First sendout 1/7/06, Second 2/4/06 (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 sendout 1/7/06)  Once you recieve your partner's journal, respond and send back (Tentative second send date 2/4/06, this will depend on when international swappers recieve).

After journals are sent back, the 'official' part of the swap will end and 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.

I've had issues recieving PMs in the past, so just in case anything goes squirrel-y, I'm posting a list of people whose signup PMs I've recieved.  So if you don't see yourself here, post and let me know.  Also, please check the time of the last edit in case I just haven't been online since you sent your signup.  Thanks!!
