A couple of years ago I hosted a swap like this and have decided I’m ready for a new version. I'm always curious about the lives other people lead and would love a peek into someone else’s life for a week. For this swap you'll put together a sort of mini journal / scrapbook telling about your life over the course of a week. You should have at least one page for each day and least 1 picture and 1 paragraph for each day.

Take your (at least) 7 pictures, print them out no smaller than 2inx3in, and put them in a small book or make a small book of them with embellishments (bus tickets, babyfood labels, stickers, glitter, scrapbooking elements, coffee rings, takeout menus, doodles, ect.) on each page. The pictures could be of the sunrise from your kitchen window, the bus stop you commute to work or school from, your 1 yr old feeding themselves dinner, you and your friends dressed up to go out on Friday night, the mug of coffee on your desk at work Monday morning, ect...Your paragraph(s) should tell your partner something about your day beyond waking 7a, work 8a-5p, dinner 7p, bed 10:30p – maybe something funny you heard on the radio during your commute, or about that annoying thing your SO did again, or how you suddenly had a craving for French fries and guacamole for breakfast, or even a copy of the recipe you totally botched when making dinner one night. Include anything that would give your partner a glimpse into the little things that make up your life.

Make it nice and send it off to one partner. There's a full month allotted between partner assignment and the send by date so you have time to put it all together together and can even start it now so it's ready to go as soon as partners are assigned. Due to the large amount of flaking that occured in the swap this is based on, you must have at least 10 rated package swaps and no unexplained 1 or 3 ratings. Profiles will be checked and any questionable swappers will be PM'd before being dropped from the swap. This will be regional (US& Canada) simply because international rates are so high. If you wish to host your own international version, please feel free to.

I don't do photography. I avoid it, but you've made me almost want to join. Sounds fun!
