II have edited the send date...my dad passed away and I will be out of town. I just don't have any creative mojo right now. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause...I also see that most of us have not sent...so maybe I am not the only one that need more time.

This is a swap I participated in sometime last year and had a lot of fun. It was in another group. The original creator is @shinyserra . I have changed it up a little bit to reflect this group. I hope we have people join in all the fun!

This will be a very time-intensive challenging swap so please be prepared for that. I will list requirements for our journals below. Each requirement MUST be fulfilled. I am giving a very long send by date because I already have 3 or 4 journals going already. I was asked to host this swap =D. You don't have to wait for partners to be assigned to get started. You may start right away. US only due to shipping costs. You don't have to do the requirements in order, just make sure they are in the journal somewhere.


Use a standard size composition notebook. They are normally 100 pages or more. . YOU MUST FILL EVERY PAGE (unless you get one that has more than 100 pages then you must fill 100 pages). If you run out of all of the things below, fill the rest of the pages with whatever you want. Do not glue pages together. You don't have to use the backs of pages, just the fronts.

Your journal covers front and back must be decorated. Inside of covers is up to you.

Your journal must include 5 Top 10 Lists

Your journal must include the lyrics to 5 of your favorite worship songs and the reason you love it (why does it minister to you etc).

Your journal must include one page of a sticker slapped collage. Try not to let any paper show through when you are done.

One question about the washi tape page: Can I create my own decorated tapes too? I have some washi tape that has been wonderfully gifted to me in various swaps, but not enough to cover an entire page.

craftykathy1 07/17/2020 #

Oh, another question: the "5 top 10 lists" page, is that 5 top 10 of any type of list one may choose?

Ilovemybabies7 07/18/2020 #

@craftykathy1 You just have to cover the page with washi tapes...you can use all kinds of different tapes so yeah you can create some of your own too...just as long as the page is covered with washi tape and none of the page showing.

Yes 5 different top ten lists of your choosing....movies, books, activities, foods, etc just as long as there are 5 top ten lists =D

Ilovemybabies7 07/21/2020 #
