Round Robin Journal Swap

I have set a limit of 10 participants.( If there are already 10, you will only be considered if I have to drop someone with a poor reputation of completing swaps).

We will use journals smaller than 8 x 10" and complete at least 2 pages in each partner's journal. The journals should have between 20 and 40 pages. Please use something lightweight so postage doesn't go too high for this international swap. Put your name and address on the back pages somewhere, either on the back cover or inside back cover. In this way, if there are any emergencies with a participant, you may at least get your journal back from a point.

Please provide art in any style you choose and any theme to each journal as you please, but be tasteful. You may decorate 2-4 pages depending on the number of pages (divide by 10).

You will always be sending to the same person and you will have 2 weeks to complete each journal. This is an international swap, so be prepared to pay for postage.

You will be rating only the person sending to you, but you will be working in 10 different journals. You are rating the fulfillment of the requirements of the swap. Everyone should do his/her best work. If you feel your partner has not given a high-quality attempt at his/her art, or if your partner does not mail out the journals in a timely manner, please feel free to rate poorly. Two weeks for each journal should be sufficient time to complete two pages.

This swap is not for newbies. I have participated in one journal swap previously. I really enjoyed the experience, but I never got my journal back. I do not want this to happen to anyone else. If you can not be completely committed to finishing this project, please do not sign up. I am looking for members with a 4.9 or better. If you do not have this rating, please PM me with details and I will make a consideration as to whether or not you will be allowed to participate. I can not angel flakers.

Everyone should now have his/her names to send to. Here is the swap schedule: Due date to mail 1st journal September 24, 2010

Due date to mail 2nd journal October 8, 2010

Due date to mail 3rd journal October 22, 2010

Due date to mail 4th journal November 5, 2010

Due date to mail 5th journal November 19, 2010

Due date to mail 6th journal December 3, 2010

Due date to mail 7th journal December 17, 2010

Due date to mail 8th journal December 31, 2010

Due date to mail 9th journal January 14, 2011

Due date to mail 10th journal January 28, 2011

Final date for all journal work February 11, 2011

You've got a head start to get your journal ready to go out. Then, once you receive a journal, you should start working on it right away. Then, you shoud have two weeks to get two pages done in that journal. You then mail it out to the same partner you mailed your own out to. Then, you will receive another journal with work already done in it. Either on or before the two week time frame, you will have it completed and mailed out.

If, for some reason, you are going to be delayed in sending any of the journals, please let me and your partner know. If you have an emergency that will delay your work for more than one extra week, please let me and your partner know and we will decide if we need to skip you in the next rotation.

Have fun in your creations! Feel free to look at any participant's profiles when working on his/her journal. If you'd like to post any of your work to the Journal blog, please use this link: http://ksj1717.blogspot.com/p/round-robin-journal-updates.html

Let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer them.

Hello All! I hope everyone is enjoying this labor day weekend. Maybe you are spending some time working in your journal to send it off. Please let me know of any problems or questions you may have.

starrgazer 09/ 9/2010 #

So just to be clear...we do not rate our partners until the entire swap is complete? I am assuming we should then PM our partners to let them know that the previous journal has been recieved. Please let me know if not.

ksj1717 09/10/2010 #

Yes. We need to keep in constant contact because of the precious value these journals hold to us. Again, my blog is here: http://ksj1717.blogspot.com/p/round-robin-journal-updates.html. PM the swapper, post to this site, and post to the blog. We should keep each other informed and feel free to post images of pages you do as well. Six months is a long time to wait for a surprise, and the pages always look better in person anyway. Thanks, Starrgazer.

Jox 09/19/2010 #

I have sent my journal and recieved. Is my journal the 1st one? or is the first the first one I have done? I can't seem to post a message on the blog

ksj1717 09/20/2010 #

Jox, I'll set the blog up to not screen posts. I can always go back and delete if I get a spam one. Sorry about that. Your journal is the first one; I'm going by due dates for all sends.

Everyone, If you haven't gotten your journal ready to go, you have the rest of this week to do so. Your journals should be mailed on Friday, September 24th. Please let me know if you are not going to meet that deadline, but I hope that we don't have delays in the process already. I can't wait to see the work! Feel free to post to the blog, or email a pic to me if you can't and I'll add it for you! Have fun everyone!

My journal was sent a couple of days ago, and I cant wait to start working in another!

ksj1717 09/25/2010 #

Awesome news! Did anyone NOT get her journal sent out in time. I'm not going to chastise you, I just need to keep up. Also, I'm trying to come up with a new spreadsheet becaue the other one doesn't work as well as I thought it would. Please let me hear from you, guys. It's imperative for me to know where these journals are. I appreciate it. I can't wait to get my journal to start working in! :)

JoyAnne 09/27/2010 #
