June 3 M Journal Swap
SWAP BEGINS: June 1
Three Mâ€™s Swap â€“ A Month of My Memorabilia
It appears that the 3M Swap is a favorite among this group, so thought Iâ€™d get a mid-year one going. The idea of this swap, for those that have never joined this swap, is to share pieces of your life with someone elseâ€¦ and to experience someone elseâ€™s in return on a day-to-day basis for an entire month.
If you join this swap, you can start to work on and get that 30 Day Journal ready for the swap.
1) You will need a Journal â€“ No smaller than a 5 x 7 and it must have enough pages in it to cover the 30 days of June. Please make sure you also include a page or two of an introduction about yourself.
2) The Journal Type is up to the sender, I use an Altered Composition Notebook, they are perfect for this type of swap, not to big not to small. Please make sure to alter the cover of your Journal, altering design is senders choice.
3) You will then, date the rest of the pages from June 1st through June 30th anyway youâ€™d like. You will then attach an article of memorabilia to EACH page for that each day.
For the purpose of this journal, memorabilia is a keepsake of an event or a piece of ephemera from a day in your life. Youâ€™ll collect these items each day for a month and sharing them with our assigned partner along with a description of how we came across the item, or why you chose that item for the day.
4) For each day, after youâ€™ve attached your memorabilia, be sure to cover that page anyway youâ€™d like, donâ€™t just attach a receipt from the grocery store, write â€œWent shopping,â€ on the page and consider it done, be creative, the entire page should be used up.
SWAP ENDS: June 30th - you have until July 15th to mail your Journal Out.
Participants are expected to mail on time ! This is a MONTH long swap, and a very hard Journal to keep up with â€“ so if you join please be committed on getting through the entire month of June.
I had to extend the send date by two-weeks normally itâ€™s a week after it ends, but I will be gone the first weekend of July, and also it is a Holiday Week that first week of July for U.S. Swappers.
