This swap is for a journal that each person decorates, and then, like a Friendship Book "fb" (see my website for more info about those) - sends it onward, to a first "swap partner". (You will be assigned ONE partner thru swap-bot.)
Then THAT person decorates a page or two, writes some fun/inspirational/poetic/encouraging things, adds some embellishments, etc, and then sends it ONWARD to their swap partner, the "next name" on the list -
You will each receive an emailed or messaged list of the "Journal's Journey", so you will always know who you are sending to, and who you will receive from.
UPDATE: Please be willing to commit to sending the journal onward within 5-7 DAYS after receiving it, so that it does not take TOOOOOO long to make its journey.
(Ya with me so far?)
The group size is limited to about 10 at this time,which will make this almost a TWO-MONTH swap. Ever swapper MUST add their name, as a "digital signature" commitment to send each journal onward within SEVEN days, and - -
ALSO that you promise to keep us informed HERE, when you RECEIVE a journal, or when you SEND one! Thank you!
Yes, it is very possible that two or more journals MIGHT be travelling together. That is fine, and you can also send them in the same package. (That way, they can keep each other company!)
As you are decorating each page in each journal, be sure to SIGN your name to every page!
If you have ANY no-send ratings, please contact me before signing up, or clear them up before the deadline. This group has a major responsibility of carefully handling every person's journal, and I do not want to introduce the possibility of any of them being "misplaced" along the way.
Two weeks from sign-up deadline to sending off your journal - you can get it now, and start decorating it -
IMPORTANT - - BE SURE TO PUT YOUR NAME (AND SWAP-BOT NAME) AND ADDRESS SOMEWHERE INSIDE THE FRONT OR BACK COVER OR SOMEPLACE VERY VISIBLE!
It is mandatory that You send me, privately, a working telephone number, before the signup deadline! I promise NOT to abuse that trust, or to give out your number.
TO AVOID THE POSSIBILITY of missing someone on the list, and also to be better able to "track down" any missing journals, each "journal journey" will be the same - in other words, you will always send to (and receive from) the SAME person.
I'm Sorry, but since this is a pretty major undertaking, newbies will not be a part of this group at this time. I want everyone to get their wonderfully decorated journals BACK when they are DONE! (This swap will be run every other month (or oftener), which gives you time to receive some ratings before joining us.)
While you CAN check out people's profiles when you are decorating their journals, I want you to put YOURSELF into your expression, and be creative with it.
Hope we can have some fun with this! Any questions, comment below or message me.
