This was originally "Christmas Journal and Gift" by Net3811 ,but it is now just for the Journal.

This challenging swap is to create a journal that your partner would not dream of celebrating Christmas without. Please make it really pretty inside and out. Check profiles for likes and dislikes. Feel free to use your own or others' illustrations, stickers, photos, pretty paper, paint, collages, charms, buttons etc. Size wise your journal can be done in an 8 x 8 scrapbook, a5 art journal or similar. Please include a Christmas gift for your partner when sending your journal. Rules Minimum rating of 4.95 No 3's or 1's in the last month

Journal requirements Please use at least 1 each of 15 of the following subjects. The rest is up to you. Fill at least 40 pages. Be aware that these art-type journals can be more challenging than they appear. Start early and you will see what I mean! Notice a few of these will not actually be “in” the journal, but feel free to find a creative way to incorporate them onto a page (ie. Burn CD—on page glue the CD sleeve and decorate the page, then put the CD in the sleeve).

This sounds like so much fun! I could really get into this and will clear up my dashboard to make room. I can get started right away though! Great idea!

this is a really good idea. i'll put it on my watchlist for now.

On my watchlist too. I think the signup date is pretty early, as well as the sending date, to be honest.

I think the send date is perfect. This is a book to help you get ready for Christmas and you'll want plenty of time to read through it and get ready! :)

I would love to take credit for this but it wasn't my idea. It was Net3811. :) And I'm glad to have everyone! And thank you oangelo143, that was our idea with the sending date.
