Description:

Have you ever seen one of those calendars that lists all the "Days" such as Build a Scarecrow Day, Pandemonium Day, National Lollipop Day, and so on?

This year, we're going to make zines each month to help each other celebrate the wacky holidays that may be celebrated, or at least noted, for the month. You can find a list of these holidays here.

The zines will be made up of:

Cover Page Like a normal cover page with the title of the zine on it and whatever you like for image and/or text.

6 inside pages Each page will represent one of the wacky holidays for the month. If you want, ONE page may be dedicated to a "month" holiday, which are listed at the top of each month's list. For example, one of the ones for July is National Ice Cream Month - yum! On each page, include the name of the holiday and the specific date. Then decorate the page accordingly.

Back Cover This is where you take credit - include your name, SwapBot user name, and any further contact information you would like, or a final message, an interesting or wacky quote, an image, or whatever. You MUST include name and SwapBot username. The rest is up to you.

We're going to send to 5 partners, because once you make the zine you just make photocopies for each additional one, and I'm keeping it in the US for postage reasons. At the end of the year, we'll have quite a collection of interesting holiday zines! Feel free to jump in any time, though. Each month is separate.

There's a rating level of 4.99 and newbies only need to have 5 type 2 or 3 swaps, completed and rated 5, to participate. Recent 1's or 3's or negative comments (more than one) and we'll talk. I don't want to not include someone because of bad luck or one mistake or something.

I'd say that I'd be happy to angel, but in truth, I send my zine to everybody whether the SwapBot matches us or not, but if you don't receive one, I can find someone to send you an extra.

So join the rest of us in celebrating International National Apple Turnover Day, Pecan Pie Day, Culinarians Day (I think maybe I'm hungry), and more!
