Hello Magpie Lovers! Let’s create a devoted mini Magpie. What’s a devoted mini you ask? It’s a pocket size or smaller (3.5x 4.5 at largest) bound composition book that you will fill 30 pages. Make sure your pages are sturdy. Perhaps glue two pages together to make stronger.

Inside you will fill it with items from your summer excursions, days, etc. Ideas of items are posted below. Be as creative as you see fit. Please don’t just place the item on the page with nothing else. Perhaps give some details on what you include or use some decorative way to display the item. Make it unique and chunky! Because these are so small, it will be easy to fill a page quickly and you might be surprised at how quickly it comes together. You can start right away as this isn’t partner specific.

I am hoping this encourages creativity as we look at items we use throughout our day.

A newspaper, magazine, or book page.

A wrapper, box clipping, etc. of something you ate.

Practice your hand lettering, write a short poem, haiku, etc.

A business flyer you received in the mail or picked up.

A tag from something you buy.

A receipt from somewhere you went.

A sample drawing, watercolor, doodle, etc.

A recycled item (think bottle cap, dryer sheet, envelope from a bill, etc.)

An old grocery or to do list you created.

A post office stamp new or used.

A date sticker or label from food, household items, etc. (my bananas, apples, and bread always have paper labels on them)

Something you find.

Something you don’t need.

A sample of a craft item you love, Washi, ribbon, stamp, etc.

A colorful page.

A piece of nature (leaf, flower, tree rubbing, etc)

Anything you desire.

Be creative.

Please don’t send sticky or stinky items.

Also, please read your partner’s profile to be sure you don’t send something they could be allergic to.

You will have a month to complete this swap.

At present, this is a US swap but another swapper may set up an international swap if desired.

Have fun with it!
