If you're like me you could always use help with journaling.

For this swap we will take an empty pringles container and decorate the outside in whatever way we like then we will stuff it full of small strips of paper with journaling prompts on them.

Fold the papers so lots will fit. There should be at least 365 prompts so we can draw and journal for a year! These prompts can be anything you wish, a word to write about, a picture to try to draw or a college to make. Example: Make a college showing how you feel today. Draw a picture of your house. Write about a Special Monday you remember.

This requires a lot of work so I'm limiting it to 4.8 ratings, no-no sends.
No Newbies, sorry! You must have at least 5 snail mail swaps other than postcards or letters. I reserve the right to ban anyone I choose.

I'm giving plenty of time for the start and send dates but you can start now if you wish.

I have moved the signup date to give some the time to get some swaps in.

Let's have fun!

Great Idea! I'm going to try to have 5 mailed swaps by then. It's watchlisted for now.

Does it have to be a pringle's can or would another containter of the same size be okay?

TexyDeb 02/ 4/2009 #

This is going to a challenge and loads of fun. I have never heard of such a thing. I am glad I came across it.

DBlalock 02/ 5/2009 #

Caranam for this one it can be any chip type container like pringles.

I am very excited for the possibilities of this swap :) Thank you for such a creative idea!

I'm curious. This is "journaling prompts". Does it HAVE to be all PAPER? Can it also include other things too, like a marble, or a pretty rock, or a rubber bug? Things that might inspire you, but aren't necessarily a chore or instructions written on paper.
