I'm a self confessed Journal freak, I love them and love reading other peoples. So I decided to do a swap where I could combine both and find out what makes everyone tick.

For this swap you will use a Journal or Notebook about A5 size, decorate it anyway you wish and answer the following questions. Giving your partner an insight into what makes you you.

What is your name? Why do you like/not like it?

Do you know the origions of your name?

write a letter to yourself in the future

Your favourite childhood memory

Make a list of everything you would buy with a million dollars

Find a photo, alter it in anyway you wish

Write down your grocery list for the week and illustrate the list

Write down a secret.

Write a list of personality traits

List 10 of your habits

Introduce your partner to your family

What are your favorite foods?

What foods do you hate?

Your 5 Favourite recipes.

Favorite Cookie Recipe and Why?

list 10 things you would like to do every day

list your 10 most important things. Not including animals or people

Draw the individual items of your favourite outfit

Who do you love?

Where do you want to travel?

What is your favorite song and why? (include lyrics)

What is your favorite sad song?

Who do look up to?

What is your favorite holiday?

What does your family do for your birthday?

20 things you want to do/accomplish before you die.

10 pet peeves and why they bother you.

Write an entry following the edge of the page and spiral inward, turning your journal as you write.

What makes you happy?

What makes you sad?

What do you love to swap?

If you could be anyone in the world, who would it be and why?

Who do you admire?

If you were invisable for 24 hours what would you do?

Wht would you change about the world?

What are your families Traditions?

I've given this swap a long completion date due to the fact some of the questions may take a while to answer.

This swap is open to all, I have the right to ban any flakers and no sends.

Happy swapping.

This sounds like a wonderful challenge. Can you please tell me what an a5 size is?

fairyfufu 08/31/2008 #

Size: A5 = (297 x 210)mm

Badwolf 08/31/2008 #

Erm... Isn't A5 a little smaller -- (148 × 210 )mm or (5.8 × 8.3)in? 297 x 210 should be A4.

MJjunkie86 08/31/2008 #

id love to do this but would hate to give it up!! might "borrow" your ideas and write them up in my own journal! (i never know what to write!!)

Badwolf 08/31/2008 #

By the way, are extra entries OK?

fairyfufu 09/ 3/2008 #

MJjunkie I sometimes do two copies of journals I am swapping so I have one to keep as a keepsake.

fairyfufu 09/ 3/2008 #

Extra enteries are fine, the more the merrier lol.

OH can't wait to get started

if anyone want to do a another private one with me and they are in the states I'd love to it

Hello all!

I can't wait to tell all of you about myself!

Can I type up my journal?? (I am bad at spelling so spelling tools fix that problem)

I could tape or glue my typed info in the notebook!

In addition, can I make it pretty too?

fairyfufu 09/13/2008 #

Yes you can type your journal and glue the pages in. Feel free to decorate your journal anyway you want.
