For this swap as your day takes you where it will collect the bits left behind as well as items that represent where you have been. Jot down journal entries or notes, collect bits, baubles, empherma and whatnots from an average (or not so average) day in your life. Record thoughts, insights or observations of the landscape and events around you, introduce your partner to the people who fill your life. When you are ready package it all up in whichever fashion you like (you have creative control here) and send to your partner - who will be eagerly awaiting a glimpse into your world.

Here are some examples of what you should include:

Ticket stubs

Receipts (what did you buy? why?)

Advertisemtents or postcards from places you visited

A playlist of the music you listen to on your way to work or while cleaning the house.

Notes from friends/kids/whoever, if you don't want to part with the original - make a copy.

The chocolate bar you enjoyed while waiting for the bus.. well not the actual chocolate bar of course! You could purchase a duplicate so you have one for your partner. How was it? Was it a treat or a something you feel guilty about?

A coaster or mini menu from where you had lunch.

A brochure or a small something from where you get your hair done. And how about a reveiw?

A small souvenier from somewhere you went

Prompt your partner with a Google Street Address of someplace you visited, if you feel comfortable.

A journal entry about the argument you and your S.O. had, or your daughter or son or best friend...

Photos of your surroundings, or a specific place.

Please remember: This swap is the grand tour of your life and how you live it, make it as interesting and detailed as you are! There are no size restrictions or minimum value set, you have creative control - so be creative!

Newbies are welcome with a very well filled profile. Anyone with recent 1s will not be allowed to join in on the fun. I WILL read through all profiles before assignment and I reserve the right to ban any potential flakers at my discretion)

IF you feel like not enough happens in a day then do a week or the weekend, but the minimum requirement for this swap is one full day.

If there are any questions please post below. Thanks!

What a great swap! I already know how I'm going to do this. I also will be putting in photo's of things I have been eating, the rooms I was in, the car, my work, my house etc. This is going to be so much fun! :-)

This is not a composition book type swap, right? Just a collection of things and notes about why I chose them?

from the swap description: "When you are ready package it all up in whichever fashion you like (you have creative control here) and send to your partner "

A journal format makes the most sense and is mentioned several times in this swap description but you ultimately have creative control over how you present your day to your partner. With that said a 'JOURNAL' does not have to be a notebook or book sized journal. It is very easy to make a booklet with as many blank pages for journaling as you wish to have.

My swap-partner who was supposed to sent me this swap, no longer has a profile on this site... I guess I'm not going to receive anything... It makes me sad, because I was really looking forward to recieving this swap. I had a lot of fun sending it out myself.
