Just sent my questionaire! I think I'll start by numbering my  30 pages that way I'll be more likely to write on them Smiley I wonder if anyone has preferences to a journal vs a handmade book?

Yes, send offs are December 10th.

I thought about including a question for preference about how the journal is made, whether it be reconstructed or handmade, but I thought that would limit partnering too much.
We have international participants! How exciting!

I will be adding participants soon. I'm on my phone right now so I can't :-/

I suggest starting journal construction now if you are going too make a hand bound one, that way, by the time you receive partners, it will be ready. If you need more pages, you can always find creative ways of adding them in, such as making a page on top of a pre existing page that is held in by ribbon.

So excited - I may use a purchased journal that I already have. But I am itching to get started!
I'm going to search the "junk" room of the preschool to see how much paper I can put my hands on and then I'll make the journal myself.

I've sent in my questionnaire. This might be the first time I have been excited to keep a journal since I let my blog waste away. Soooo many ideas floating around in my noggin.

Always looking for personal swaps!

Thinking about this one. It's right up my alley, as I love art journaling, but I know I'd be so sad sending of a month of my life...but it'd be awesome to get one in return so....possibly. =]

And DizzerSpinninRound, I love your icon it makes me smile huge.

Sent my questionnaire in earlier, and can't wait to get started.  I'm going to town tomorrow and know a great shop that sells great quality journals for cheap, so I might get one of those and make it my own (or my parthers as it would be) Smiley  If they don't have one I like, I'll make one.

I'm going to bind some watercolour paper. I think I might go fairly small and give myself a double page spread for each day. I guess the double spread will be A5 size total. Hmm. That would give me one side to make a watercolour sketch of something and one page to jot some notes.

Yay, I have joined =] I love to write, and I am very candid about everything. In my mind nothing is sacred and I will share it all =] Hope who ever I am partnered with does not mind the nitty gritty details of someones life, sometimes it just needs to get out =P
I will probably buy a journal and decorate the outside and pages with pictures and stuff. Since I sculpt clay I may use that skill to alter the outside =]
