New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on the last page so it can be returned to you when it is full.

This book is going to be used for MIXED MEDIA so please make sure that your book is made of a sturdy paper that can hold up to some beating.

You can decorate the first spread of pages (please use a previous swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Rating is set at 4.9. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk: unexplained 1s or 3s in the last 6 months, anyone who hasn’t been active for the last 3 months, No newbies (anyone on swap-bot less than 6 months). If you are in one of the above mentioned categories but feel you should be allowed to join, message me.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (R15 theme was: A few of my Favorite Things. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the Favorite Things prompt).

When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread (one left side and one right side) based on the prompt given. Don't forget to add your username, date and country to your layout somewhere. You will then hold on to the book until the next partner is assigned and send it to them.

When the book is full you will need to return the book back to it's original owner.

PROMPT: Book Pages. Rip a page out of a book/dictionary and go to town. You could also use newspaper or magazine if you can't destroy a book :) Or draw! See the swap thumbnail for an idea. Remember: this prompt will go in the book you RECEIVE this round!! Don't like the current theme? use an old one that's not in the book yet!

Rating: if you receive a book from your partner with one full spread decorated (one left side, one right side) in a reasonable amount of time, please rate a 5. Only rate a 1 if you did not receive anything.

Please comment below with the journal owner's name/ID. I keep track of the journals, but confirmation (for me and the owner) is always nice :) Thanks!

Does anyone know who has my journal? I missed out on a few rounds but had previously messaged someone to please return my journal. I have not received any reply or journal. Can anyone help? !

FIY everyone!

My family is gearing up for a pretty big move (1,000 miles!!) so i'm going to wait until we are settled in our temporary housing before posting the next swap. So it will be a little while longer than usual before getting the next swap up.

As usual, i will send everyone an email (your registered swap-bot email address) announcing the swap! if you haven't been getting these emails in the past (or are new and would like to join the next round), PM your email and i'll put you on the list!!!
