Thanks to @elluzki who let me borrow this idea for a USA only swap!

In this swap you have one partner for whom you'll create a journal and fill it with lyrics from at least 30 of your favorite songs. You will also answer a few questions about your tastes in music and the influence music has had on your life.

You can buy a journal and use it as is, decorate one you've bought, or make one (not to be considered when rating). But do decorate your journal! Graphics, photos and embellishments will make your journal much more interesting for your partner.

Copy the following questions to the first few pages of your journal and answer each one. You don't have to give each question a full page, but do give your answers some thought and share yourself!

• What's your favorite song?
• What song influenced you the most when you were growing up?
• What song always makes you laugh?
• Cry?
• Dance?
• What's your favorite song about freedom?
• About love?
• What song do you turn off as soon as it starts to play?
• What song makes you turn the volume up and hush everyone in the room?
• What song do you think you could have written or wish you had written?
• What song do you like to wake up to?
• What's your favorite song from your parents music collection?
• What song do you sing in the shower?
• What song do you especially love to listen to in the car?
• What song inspires you?
• What song would you like to/or did have sung at your wedding?
• What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

You'll have three (3) weeks to complete and then send your journal so if that isn't enough time, please don't sign up. Since it's a sender's choice swap, you can begin right away so that should give you plenty of time to finish your journal.

Be sure to include a note with the swap name and your ID so your partner knows who sent their journal.

This is a USA only swap to help save on postage. Flakers are NOT allowed so please follow through! I will be checking profiles. Newbies are allowed with a completed profile and no 1's or 3's within the last six months. Have fun and contact me if you have questions!

5/12/2012: Changed the swap name from Music Journal Swap - USA Only to Lyric Journal Swap - USA Only to better reflect the nature of the swap.

I have one question, Can we print out the song lyrics? or do we have to hand write them.

Song lyrics - and questions above - CAN be printed and adhered to your pages! I'm a very lazy writer so I can guarantee that's what I'll do. :o) (Sorry if that offends! The idea is to share our thoughts.)
