This is the fifth in the series but feel free to join in! I'll keep doing swaps as long as there is interest.

New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on the last page so it can be returned to you when it is full.

This book is going to be used for MIXED MEDIA so please make sure that your book is made of a sturdy paper that can hold up to some beating.

You can decorate the first spread of pages (please use the last swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (#4 theme was: Food!). When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread based on the prompt given. Don't forget to add your username, date and country to your layout somewhere. You will then hold on to the book until the next partner is assigned and send it to them.

When the book is full you will need to return the book back to it's original owner.

PROMPT: TIME. Decorate a page with something that has to do with time...watches, clocks, calendars, the word, egg timers… Be creative!

Rating: if you receive a book from your partner with one full spread decorated (one left side, one right side) in a reasonable amount of time, please rate a 5. Only rate a 1 if you did not receive anything.

You will have 12 days from the Sign-up date to make (if this is your first round) or draw (for returning participants) before sending to your partner.

I will angel this swap on the following conditions:

  • it's been 4 weeks

  • you've contacted your swap partner and tried to work something out and

  • you have rated a 1

Rating is set at 4.9. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk. No newbies and no recent unexplained 1s or 3s.

swap graphic is The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí.

NEW if you currently have a journal, would you please comment below with the owner's name? it would be nice to know if our journals are still in rotation and where they are :) Thanks!

for anyone confused: the journal you SEND OUT in this round should have the food prompt in it. the journal you RECEIVE in this round will get this round's prompt: the clock.

Not everyone will have done the food prompt. I did not get my last journal in time to participate in that round. I have Susie Scottsdale's journal. And lovely it is too

Sorry for responding late - dial-up has been slow.
I have Star7Lily's journal. A big shout out for Kim & a thank you for continuing these swaps on the journal. I also love the check-in on where the journals have traveled.

Does anyone have Julybaby's journal? Just checking

kim91262 11/ 6/2013 #

@julybaby59 since i didn't host the first two rounds, i'm not sure i can help you track your journal, but pm me the name of who you sent to in the first round and I'll see what i can do!
