I am currently keeping my journal in the booklet provided in the Wide Open: Art Journaling on the Edge kit. I am finding my writing and creativity have been sparked by having such a wonderful medium to write in.

You can see the Wide Open kit here for a general idea of what I mean: amazon_link

For this swap you will make your partner a journal of at least ten sheets of paper (thus 20 pages of usable surface). You can choose to bind this however you like, but remember, you want it to be easy to write in and inspirational, so just stapling it might not be ideal.

Then play with the pages themselves. Put inspirational quotes on them, journaling prompts, make them colorful, use different kinds of paper, all different kinds of things to make this journal something that will inspire your partner to use it and become more creative. I've been playing with painting and collaging pages then color copying them so it's easy to write on.

Make this journal something you would find inspiring and delightful to use. Have fun. Play!

Feel free to start working on this now, you can personalize it later if you like.


  • No newbies, I'm sorry. Contact me if you are aching to come in and we can talk.
  • no one with less than a 4.75
  • no no-sends n the last few months. Contact me if there's something I should know about and you want in.
  • This is an international swap - think how cool it would be to get a book made somewhere else in the world!

I will review profiles and ratings and ban as needed.

One partner per person as this will require some time and effort.
