We will customize a store-bought or handmade journal for our partners, can embellish cover if you like. You are not filling the journal, but enriching the journal with prompts, art, quotes, and whatever you think will make the journal nice.

You pick the theme out of these choices listed bellow. Please also list below if you would like lined or unlined. Size at least 4x6 inches should have decent number of pages around 50-100 can certainly be more.

Theme Choices:

  1. Just writing prompts: ie: I went to the market and....(finish the story)

  2. Just art prompts: ie: If you were to look through a keyhole what would you see.

  3. Summer challenges ie: Take your journal for a walk and find something round, yellow and green or make your own popsicles, experiment with the flavors write about the process, or the flavors.

  4. A combination of any or all of prompt choices.

Your challenge is to add bits to the journal, most things you add will not take up full page. just a line or two, or top corner of a page. Should look at profile for ideas, but does not have to be profile specific.

Please include at least 20 small bits, at least 15 being prompts. Can also include inspirational art, decorative art- that you make or some one else made. inspiring quotes, poems, stories- remember most not taking up a lot of space. Say someone wants a writing prompt book and loves oceans some of the things you add may be inspired by that such as a beautiful ocean picture, decorative seashell border on a page, quote about the ocean, beachy embellishments on parts of a few pages, Prompts like, I woke up on an ocean and..., If I were a mermaid I would..., My favorite ocean memory is... Not everything would have to be ocean themed, but using your partners profile, may help you know how to customize the journal for your partner.

If you get stuck you can contact your partner for more direction.

Goal is you send the journal to your partner, and then you receive a journal that you can use throughout the summer to keep you busy, and give you something that travels easily and will be fun for you to fill in the pages.

For my journal, I would like a type 4 journal, a combination of writing prompts, summer challenges, and art prompts. I would prefer art prompts. I would also like it to be unlined, so It's easy for me to add art. Thanks :)

I would love to join this swap, will you be doing another one? I am a newbie and already have a journal like this that I made for a friend, I would love to share this with others. I can re-print the pages, PLEASE say that you will do another swap like this.

I love the journals in the picture!!!!

marieke 06/17/2010 #

Do the pages have to be blank or lined (sorry for my english)? Can I use a moleskine journal?

junieandj 06/17/2010 #

Eyecu: I might do another one depends on how this one goes. Marieke, your partner decides if they would prefer lined or unlined-

Please remember this is not a fill in journal.

...Will be clearing of the messages so, it's easy to see what your partner is wanting for journal.

I'm not much of an artist, but I love to write. I would like writing prompts or crafty prompts in a lined journal. I prefer smaller spacing between the lines, but I'm flexible there.

I'd like #4 and would prefer unlined as I sometimes use mind-mapping techniques when I'm writing.

junieandj 06/19/2010 #

I have extended the sign up by 1 day, to allow watchers to join if they didn't get a chance, as well as to allow time for everyone signed up for the swap to write their journal preferences.

marieke 06/19/2010 #

I would like to have #4 and unlined pleased, I do a lot of art journaling.
