You will need:
1 Notepad/Journal of your choice.
possibly 1 Folder or organizer of your choice.
For this swap you will collect journal entries or notes, bits, baubles, empherma and whatnots from an average (or not so average) day in your life, then you will package it all up (however you like - you have creative control here), and send to your partner - who will be eagerly awaiting a glimpse into your world.
You will start your day with your notepad in hand. As your day takes you where it will, collect the bits left behind as well as items that represent where you have been. Use your notepad to record thoughts, insights or observations of the landscape and people around you. Be creative.
Here are some ideas to include with your notes or journal entries:
Advertisemtents or postcards from places you visited
A mixed CD of the music you listen to on your way to work or while cleaning the house.
Notes from friends/kids/whoever, if you don't want to part with the original - make a copy.
The chocolate bar you enjoyed while waiting for the bus.. well not the actual chocolate bar of course! You could purchase a duplicate so you have one for your partner, or just tape the wrapper into your notepad. How was it? Was it a treat or a something you feel guilty about?
A coaster or mini menu from where you had lunch.
A brochure from the place you receive massage or bodywork, a small something from where you get your hair done. And how about a reveiw? "That massage was horrible, she had long nails and the talked the whole time!"
A small souvenier from somewhere you went
A journal entry about the argument you and your S.O. had, or your daughter or son or best friend...
Photos of your surroundings, or a specific place.
Please remember: This swap is the grand tour of your life and how you live it, make it as interesting and detailed as you are!
