This is a New Member swap. See Forum Post for details. But all are welcome to join!

Alter the cover and some of the inside pages of a blank theme book, inexpensive journal or spiral bound book for your partner.

Book should be at least 4"x6" but not bigger than 7"x9" to keep shipping cost down.

Paint it, color it, collage it. Use tabs, pockets, bookmarks, clips, ribbon, string. Add a closure or not. Draw on some of the pages, leave little notes, add photos, stampings or clip art. Glue in fancy pages, random pages, vintage pages or glue a few pages together. Use your watercolors, markers or pastels.

Make it interesting, themed or random but be sure to leave space for the recipient to personalize it. Mostly, have fun! There are very few rules besides it being something you would like to receive :)

Is this going to be altered with a pagan theme? The group page says not all swaps will be specifically pagan, and I am only interested if it is a pagan theme. No offense ;-)

Another question. The swap says the book should be at least 4"x6", but I have a book that is perfect and it is 5,3"x5,3". Is that okay, does it equal out? ;-) Or should I find another book if I wanna join?

@Morgaine If you prefer a Pagan themed book, I think that your partner should make it for you.:-) It's really partner's choice, but if that is your preference, they should look here after partners are assigned & notice your request. I can't guarantee that you'll receive a "Pagan" flavored one, tho. So, your choice to join. Or if you wanna host a specifically Pagan one, please do.:-)

The book you have sounds great. If you sign up, totally use it.

Okay, thanks. I'll think about it ;-)
