New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) 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 a previous swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Rating is set at 4.9. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk: unexplained 1s or 3s in the last 6 months, anyone who hasn’t been active for the last 3 months, No newbies (anyone on swap-bot less than 6 months). If you are in one of the above mentioned categories but feel you should be allowed to join, message me.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (R13 theme was: Circles. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the silhouette prompt).

When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread (one left side and one right side) 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: LOVE. This can be something you love, the word itself, the colors red/pink, the emotion, etc. Remember: this prompt will go in the book you RECEIVE this round!! Don't like the current theme? use an old one that's not in the book yet!

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 can find the swap graphic here

Please comment below with the journal owner's name/ID. I keep track of the journals, but confirmation (for me and the owner) is always nice :) Thanks!

Hi there Everyone! Just wondering who currently has my journal. ... (it's a double fold out type with an image transfer on the front of an anatomical heart....as well as my info on the inside!) I haven't seen any updates as to where it is and I am anxious awaiting it's return!

kim91262 10/ 3/2014 #

walkthoreau, i had your journal a few rounds ago (R11) and there were still a TON of empty pages. I believe that @star7lily has it.

dartha 10/ 6/2014 #

I have star7lily's mini book.

kim91262 10/ 6/2014 #

i just found out that another completed journal made it's way home this month! yay! that's 3 that I know of :)

Doiregirl 10/ 7/2014 #

I'd like to join this swap, when the journal is made up can the front and back cover be decorated as well as the first two pages before being sent out for the first time, or is it just completing first two page spread before sending out?

kim91262 10/ 9/2014 #

@doiregirl absolutely. decorate the journal however you like. i've even seen some pages that are blank but more than plain white! get as creative as you want : )
