This swap is International and you will have 1 partner.
For this swap, you will keep a journal of what you do during the months of July & August. Start July 1st and continue until August 31st (and I'll give you a few extra days to wrap it up and ship it out.)

You do not need to write pages each day! Aim for at least 2 entries per week, but you can always do more. :) These entries can be written in paragraph form, you can keep a list, add some ticket stubs or receipts for things you did - you can even draw a bit. But at least 1 of the 2 weekly entries need to be written rather than art. Please date each page.

The journal is up to you! You can keep it in a notebook, you can type it out and send that on, make a journal, use a pre made notebook -that is up to you, sender's choice. Once partners are assigned and you see where you are sending your journal, you can always adjust what you send so it keeps the postage down. (Typed sheets, front & back, could be sent as a letter easier than a bulky book, for example.) Unless you are sending a fully typed journal, the pages should all be bound together, though. Please don't send individual scraps of paper or papers that will fall out of the book. We want our partners to be able to easily read what we've kept, right? :)

Journal pages should be no smaller than 4x5 (or about A6 size). A standard traveler's notebook insert or passport sized insert would work well for this, if you have one.

Please include the swap name and your SB ID in the journal. When you receive your journal, please be sure to rate your partner promptly! If it is at all possible, get tracking with your package - too much mail is going missing. :(


You will send 1 partner some type of a journal with a minimum of 16 entries (or 2 entries a week for 8 weeks) during the month of July & August.

Date each entry.

1 entry per week (for a total of 8 entries) may be art based.

List the swap title and your swap bot ID in the journal Send on time, with tracking if possible.

Journal is sender's choice - store bought/hand made book, typed or handwritten, typed & sent as a letter.

Size 4x6/A6 or larger

If you are assigned a partner who lives in a country that your country is not mailing to/from, please contact me! I have an idea in mind to help us around this postal issue, in case it comes up, so that everyone can receive their mail and ratings. :) Wonky mail will not stop us from swapping!

If you would prefer to take pictures of your pages and send via email or share a document via email and do an email version of this swap, please let me know. If there is an interest, I will set up the swap.

If you have any questions please send me a PM & I will reply as soon as I can.
