I really liked Postmuse's idea of a journal page postcard, so here it is..

You will create 2 postcards in the style of a journal page. Pick a day or pick an event and journal about it on a postcard. Do this twice. Send the postcards naked to your partners.

If you need some inspiration the flickr pools below have some great journal pages.

Thank you for coordinating! Journaling on postcards can get quite addictive. I do this at work, at the end of the day, on random postcards I keep in my desk drawer. I write myself a journal of whatever sticks in my mind from the day. I don't mail them from work, though, as that would open the door to fellow employees reading them. I mail the cards from a mailbox on the way to the bus stop. It usually takes a week for them to get to my mailbox, 20 miles away.

I found a library discarded copy of the book Journal Revolution with art by Linda Woods. It's a good starting place for art journaling. With short pithy instructions, and good art examples. ( and I like that it was free!)

I love that yours was free! I had to pay for mine :(. I can't believe that a library ditched that one alreday..it's brand new!

I think I stuttered in the swap description :)...It says to make 2 postcards twice..I only meant 2 postcards total/one to each partner. Did anyone make 4 postcards??

PostMuse 04/13/2008 #

I didn't make four cards. Had a hard enough time making two! I just sent mine off today. Man, that was much more difficult than I thought it would be. I've got a few rejects in my recycle pile.

Thank you all, we are all sent on time! It's been a pleasure...Please let me know if you don't receive your cards..:)

Hey Postmuse, You had trouble??? Wasn't this YOUR idea?? ;)

PostMuse 04/14/2008 #

I thought I would have such an easy time creating a postcard and writing a journal entry. I do it all the time to send to myself. Performance anxiety struck when I had to do it for others, I guess.
