mag·pie noun /ˈmagˌpī/  magpies, plural A long-tailed crow with boldly marked (or green) plumage and a raucous voice Used in similes or comparisons to refer to a person who collects things, esp. things of little use or value. The Magpie is a bird who goes around collecting things, so for the purpose of this journal you are to have at least 50 entries of things you have collected, made, etc.

Examples are:


Please do not make all 50 entries the same thing. In fact, the more varied your book, the better. You can make it into an artsy type journal if you'd like as long as you add some found elements. That's what I usually end up with.

You can use a journal, composition notebook, or mixed media notebook to put your entries in. You will have one partner. Make sure to decorate the cover of the book as well. You don't have to make it crazy, all out blinged, but make it look nice.

(based on @draco 's original swap)

Please note that I had to change the swap to USA Region due to postage. I'm broke ;)

I've left plenty of time to complete the swap, so, if you are going to be late in mailing, COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE!!!! This is a MUST! If you are late with the swap, let your partner and me know please.

Pic is my last journal

I love this swap but hate giving my creation away at the end. I get so attached to it. I need a swap like this but then I get to keep it afterwards... Lol. I started one for myself a long time ago but I never seem to get it completed because there is no consequence if I don't get it done.

I hear you, it's so hard to give up some swaps :)
