I am hosting a version of this swap currently, but have had several requests to join from new swappers, who don't meet the current requirements with number of completed swaps. So! I decided to host this version for new swappers!
For this swap, you will need to have a very well filled out profile meaning at least 3 sections with details about you, your likes, dislikes, what you swap, etc.
Now the swap! You will have 1 partner and this swap is International.
Yes, there are a lot of details! But please read carefully! I've tried to explain everything! If I have forgotten anything, please send me a PM to ask - I don't check the comments section very often, but do check my messages daily.
The details: -You will need a short journal. You can (neatly) re-purpose a journal that you have, you can buy one, you can make one.
The journal should be no smaller than 4x6 inches. The journal will need at least 15 pages (or 8 pages written front and back), a front cover and a back cover.
You may make your own journal, but make sure all the pages are attached, they are cut, they are cut straight and neatly done. Please don't just staple a few pages to a piece of construction paper and call it good! Cover and page decoration are up to you and you can add as much as you want.
On the inside cover of your journal, please list the swap name and your swap ID! This will help your partner rate you!
-You will have 20 days to craft your journal, answer the 15 required list questions, and get it sent off to your partner. This will be a List Journal, and I will provide you with the list topics. This is not profile based, so you may start on it when you sign up! Send by date is not a suggestion! You need to mail no later than that date!
Aim to list at least 5 items for each list.
Entries can be in paragraph form or you can just write the list name at the top of the page, and tic off the points. Make sure your handwriting is legible.
Lists should all be handwritten, not typed
The lists: You are REQUIRED to answer a minimum of 15 of these topics. You may answer more or all if you wish, but you must answer a minimum of 15:
Places you've lived (City/state/country)
List your favorite films/movies OR List your favorite books/authors
List your biggest fears
List things most people probably don't know about you
List your accomplishments
List the ways your have changed since your teens
List your favorite games to play (any type of game: board, card, video, etc)
List the websites you visit most often
List the best gifts you have ever received
List the things you would like to do on your day off
-List your favorite movie stars/music bands/ performers
-List the places you would most like to go to on vacation
-List the names of past schools or classes you've attended

Partners will be assigned the day after last day to sign up. I usually assign partners by noon (EST) the day after sign up ends.
You will have 1 partner that you will send your journal to.
This swap is International (Last year I sent journals that I made with scrapbook paper for this swap International from the USA, and it weighed about 2 ounces.)
Do NOT fold your journal to fit in an envelope. It should be sent flat!
** You can start this journal when you sign up**
If for any reason you have to send late, you need to PM your partner and host (me!) so we know. I will angel if you are flaked on, but you must follow procedure - message your partner, rate them a 1. Depending on location, it may take a few weeks for journals to arrive. When your journal arrives, please rate your partner, according to Swap-Bot guidelines.
Rating minimum is 5.0. New swappers allowed, but must have no 1's or 3's, and must have a minimum of 5 type 2 & 3 rated swaps.
Established swappers with 5.0 and no unresolved 1's or 3's. If you have a 1 or 3 in the last 6 months, please PM me before signing up, state your case. Swappers need a minimum of 5 completed and rated Type 2 & 3 swaps to join.
Must sign in to swap-bot within 2 days before last sign up - it helps to know you're still active! :) Profiles need to be well filled out, at least 3-4 sections.
Questions? PLEASE ASK!! Let's have fun! :)
PM me with any questions. I don't often check the comments section, so it's best to send a PM.
(**Lists are all found in the Listography: Your Life in Lists journal)
