Hi all!

I was thinking about how fun all the holiday swaps are, and thinking that January seems to be a bit of a "dry" time after the holiday when there isn't as much to look forward to.  I reflected a bit on what people like to do in January and realized that it is often a time of starting new habits and leaving behind old ones, and getting motivated to make the new year great.

I was thinking that it might be fun to swap 2015 Journals.  Possible themes:
- Inspirational
- Goal focused (fitness, finance, community, healthy diet choice, etc.)
- Gratitude
- Crafting (50 things, etc.)
- You name it!  

Each person could identify the theme(s) that they want to focus on in the new year, and their partner would make a journal for them.  I'm thinking that we would each specify our desired journal size (some people want 8.5 x 11 to have plenty of room to write/draw/etc. and others might want something that fits into their purse), our desired themes, favorite things/colors/etc., and our partners would make us a journal to use in the new year.  Maybe also a question about what kind of timekeeping, if any, people want (a section per month, a typical calendar-looking layout, no time indicators, etc.).

Alternately, we could just do some journal pages to our partners' themes (maybe 5 per partner?).

Any interest on this?
