With RainyC getting ready to go back to school, I figured I'd host this next round of the 3M happiness.

For those who haven't played before, this is how it works:Share pieces of your life with someone else… and experience someone else’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 – No smaller than a 5 x 7 and it must have enough pages in it to cover the 30 days of September. 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 September 1st through September 30th anyway you’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. You’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 you’ve attached your memorabilia, be sure to cover that page anyway you’d like, don’t just attach a receipt from the grocery store, write “Went shopping,” on the page and consider it done, be creative, the entire page should be used up.

SWAP ENDS: September 30th - you have until October 6th 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 – so if you join please be committed on getting through the entire month of September

I have a full dashboard right now, but I plan to do this swap.

I also plan to make my own journal. I just made 2 for other swaps and it is so much easier. Using 81/2 x11 SB paper , and cereal boxes cut down to size for covers , decorated/altered.
Bought book binding rings at WalMart for less than $2 . Drilled holes in the stack of papers/covers and I was done.

So easy . So much easier than the composition notebook for me...

Can't wait to start this one:)

I am watching for now, coz unfortunately the postal service seem to have tempered with the journal I am waiting for :-( Plus am not sure, if I can make it..... But am watching and hoping :-)

Hi Dami, do keep me posted. If it does not arrive within the next week, I will be more than happy to make you another.
