Many thanks to @USAFwife for hosting our first Magpie Journal swap here in the group! Personally, I have great fun doing these and now have a bag of daily ephemera that I collect for the express purpose of continuing on. Hopefully you'll join me for this round!
Take or make a journal or notebook (no smaller than 4x6) and fill at least 30-pages with magpie goodness! What is magpie goodness? Think receipts, brochures, flyers, business cards, stickers, bits of mail received, scraps from your arts and crafting, bits of washi, used stamps from letters, recipes, found items (clean please!), candy wrappers (also clean please!), clippings from newspapers, books, or magazines...all of that stuff we might normally throw away or otherwise disregard.
There does not need to be an artistic component to this - it's not an art journal - but you can doodle, draw, stamp, add notes about particular items...however you want to share the shiny of your day-to-day life with your partner!
You may fill more than 30 pages if your notebook allows, but in order to keep postage reasonable, 30 pages will be the minimum. That's 15 sheets of paper if you're counting. ;) And for those concerned with postage, I have sent these overseas from the US before - it costs about 7.50 in USD.
Please note that this is NOT profile-specific so you may start your journals now - and there is a long lead time on this. This is open to each individual's interpretation, so what you receive may be very different than what you have done, but that's the beauty of creativity!
