I love journals and there have been several similar to this one but I changed a few things so I hope you like it!

For this journal you will alter a composition notebook (the 8.5 x 11 ones). You will alter it based on your partners profile or you can ask them if there is anything specific they would like on theirs (this is my personal suggestion).

For the inside: (these do not have to be in this order)

*organizing tips

*10 recipes

*favorite websites

*marriage (relationship) advice

*ideas for journals (decorations, themes, etc)

*detailed idea of a swap you would like to see/do

*10 ways to save money

*neat decorating ideas

*favorite books (ones that you would recommend). If you don't read, then substitute something else here like shows, movies, songs, etc.

*best advice ever received

*10 cleaning tips

*5 ways you de-stress

*parenting advice (if you don't have kids, maybe something you have heard or your parents did)

*5 homemade gift ideas (make one of these for your partner, example: homemade ornament hooks—make some for your partner)

*10 craft ideas (make one for your partner, example: tags—make some tags for your partner)

*CD of your favorite songs (at least 15 songs)

Extras to include: please include 3 extra pages of something of your choice. Examples are:

*alphabet font doodling drawn out

*things you like to do or find interesting

*patterns (scrapbooking, envies, etc)

Also, hide little extras throughout your journal. For example, throw in some recipe cards. If you see a neat picture or tip on the internet print it off and stuff it in the journal. Lets make this journal a treasure to get and not some sloppy thing threw together.

So since it is highly involved, the send date will be a couple of months out that way you can put effort into it. NOTICE: please do not just sloppy glue paper printouts into your journal. Please make this something you would be proud to give away or excited to get!

Make have a 4.9 and no newbies. Sorry! As always, feel free to throw in extras. I know that always makes a person smile.

If anything is confusing just leave a comment or message me. :)

Is this USA only? And what are you defining as newbies?

mamatoallie 02/ 5/2010 #

Jaelle: It is USA, but I messaged you about a private one. Or if you really want you can make a Canada version or International version. :)

I would possibly be interested in a Canada one...this looks like a great idea!

mamatoallie 02/ 5/2010 #

Ok, you guys twisted my arm. I'll edit it to Canada. :)

Hellotheremary 02/ 6/2010 #

I'm also wondering what you're defining as a newbie?

twobluecrows 02/ 6/2010 #

A Newbie is defined in the New User info page as the following:

"...All new users of Swap-bot start with a swap sign up limit. You can only sign up for five swaps at a time at first. This limit lasts until you have received three positive (5) ratings from your swap partners. (To read more about the Swap-bot rating system check out the frequently asked rating questions.) Once you have received three positive ratings, the new user swap sign up limit is removed and you can sign up for as many as twenty swaps at a time..."

what a great swap idea, I keep coming back to it and thinking hard on it, the only things keeping me out at this point is the CD ..will keep considering it..

occasiongb6557, I'm sure your partner wouldn't mind if you substituted something as long as it was a good subsititute!

This is a great idea...thanks for opening it up to Canada!

I like journals and this idea is very good. Unfortunately, I'm still working on two overlapping journal swaps, so the timing is not good for me.

Not sure if anyone had noticed but the mix cd is no longer accepted. forum link

mamatoallie 03/24/2010 #

I e-mailed everyone about the cd issue, so if you didn't get it let me know and I'll resend it or I'll message you on here.
