This is the US Only of the "A Journal Entry/Picture A Day" Swap I am also hosting. (For the International version - http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/7411).

The premise for the swap is simple: keep a journal for at least twenty days. Each day should have one entry. Each entry should include one page of text and one page of illustration. The text can be anything you feel like - what happened during the day, a poem or song you like, a story you read or wrote... literally anything. The illustration should be complementary and could include a drawing, a collage, a photograph, or any art that you want to include. For example, one day you might go to dinner and a movie. Your entry might be the story of your night and the illustration might be a collage of a take-out menu from the restaurant, a ticket stub, and maybe a magazine cutout related to the movie.

Thus, the finished product should have at least twenty entries. You will then send it to your partner, who will keep it. You will keep the journal sent by whomever sends to you.

Obviously, this swap requires a large commitment of time and energy, so it is for serious swappers only. That means you must have a rating of 4.5 or above. I will ban anyone with a lower rating or more than one no send. Sorry, no newbies.

Thanks for checking out my swap and feel free to contact me with any questions!

I joined both of these swaps...better get started! :) I think I'll try and alternate between 2 books.

I would like to thank the host for also starting a USA only version of this swap.

It's my pleasure. I'm just so excited that all of you want to be a part of it!

I have already started mine, and am getting SO MUCH enjoyment from it. It's adding a real boost to my art-making, too.

Me too, Wanda!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that I've started another journal swap slightly different from this one.


Take care, Julie

I'm a little disheartened with this one. It looks like my partner may not send as she is late on 5 swaps and hasn't logged on lately. Also the partner I'm supposed to send to is late on 20+ swaps (even though she has an exlanation).

FarStarr 11/13/2007 #

That would be explanation..

Journal mailed Tuesday 11/13/07, by Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Thanks again to Host for creating a USA only variation from the original International project.

Hey everyone. Due to various slipping in ratings and health issues, we are now skipping two swappers in this group. I have messaged all parties and let them know what's going on. If you have not heard from me, then it does not affect you, so don't worry. Also, with everything worked out, things should go smoothly... but if anyone is having any issues please don't hesitate to contact me.
