For this swap you will need one small notebook. Target sells several sets of three 4x6 stapled notebooks for about $3.. they are flat like a moleskine, cardboard covers, have about 40 pages. This is probably what I am using. You may make one, or buy one, it can be a moleskine or a cheap Target one or anything you want. The goal is thin, sewn or stapled (not spiral) and about 4x6. With me so far?
You will write your address inside the front cover, or outside it, if you prefer. If your cover is blank, feel free to embellish a bit. Write a short introductory page inside, either about you OR about your book, or both. Feel free to write several pages if you like... this book will come back to you... it is yours.
You will send this book to your 'send to' partner. They will journal, write, draw, paste, embellish, stick on random pieces of junk mail ( @traceyk that was added for you, because you don't think you can craft. :), paste in Calvin and Hobbes cartoons, or random quotes, or otherwise alter several pages. The maximum number will depend on how many of us participate, but let's say a minimum of four. (A front is one, a back is another, so two facing pages actually DO count as TWO, etc.)
This person will now mail the book they just worked on, yours, to THEIR 'send-to' partner. We will continue this circle, sending every three weeks (hopefully) until your book arrives back to you. You are welcome to send your book off sooner. (we will be assigned numbers and a sending order once partners are assigned)
Swap end date will be edited to allow three weeks per participant, and if we find holiday mail slowing us down, we will alter it again.
Mail dates will be:
