Description:

Being an artist and creator of handmade journals using handmade paper and selling them at www.IndianJournals.etsy.com ; I now crave to see journals from other journals makers :)

This swap is open worldwide for other journal making enthusiasts. THIS SWAP IS ALSO OPEN FOR JOURNAL LOVERS. There is absolutely no hard and fast rule on how your journal design or style should be. It is completely your choice. It is however always nice to read the recipients profile to understand his/her likes or dislikes. YOU ARE ALLOWED TO SEND INTERESTING AND BEAUTIFUL STORE BOUGHT JOURNALS TOO.

Each Journal should be bound and should be a minumum of 6 x 4 inches and have 30 pages. You can of course send a bigger and a thicker journal if you wish !

Please note that the journal must be un-used and preferably completely handmade. However, if the journal is partially handmade - thats also fine. Infact you can even send store bought journals which you feel are really interesting.The papers can be patterned or blank - but as long as someone can use them or write over them.

I encourage the recipients to rate a 5 if you receive a 4 inch by 6 inch journal. Rate a 5, even if you don't like it!! You are NOT rating on the quality or design of the journal or on whether or not you like it. Since this is a "senders choice" swap, your partner is not required to read your profile first.

Who can or cannot participate: no "one" or unexplained "three" ratings within the last 6 months.

Please note: All journals must be sealed in a plastic sleeve / cover before being put in the final envelope to protect it from getting soiled. All packages must include your name and swapbot user ID on a separate paper for quick identification.

As a friendly suggestion - it would be great if the packages include a little note or a letter for the recipient. It would just make this swap more friendly and warm :)

Feel free to get in touch with me incase you have any questions.

Just FYI - the swaps you are hosting have VERY low rating requirements. Please see this PF thread regarding ratings. Thanks!

Yeah- I'm new to this swap site- and reallly want to try this- but probably won't unless the rating is increased- even if it means getting rated out (not enough swaps, etc) . This could be a really awesome swap though :D

Time intensive, lot of work in this, yet an extremely low rating requirement to join. :/

Vishruti 08/26/2015 #

Thanks for the tips @user2637 and @Lizard I have increased the rating requirement

Thanks :)

Can we use patterned paper for the inside pages or do they have to be blank?

Vishruti 08/27/2015 #

@Aramos22 - they can be patterned or blank - but as long as someone can use them or write over them.

Thanks :)

I'd love to do this, but I'll be out of town, and with the turn-around time, I'd never get it done it time! Next round, maybe.

Just to. Double check before I join..... you can do store bought journals in this swap. I buy my journals from ex libris anonymous and I really "love" them. They are recycled books that have been made into journals. Is this acceptable in this exchange. The one I plan on using for this exchange (if acceptable) is a dr seus one

Vishruti 09/25/2015 #

@Keziah - yes store bought journals are allowed. However they need to be exceptionally beautiful and worth receiving.
