This is a type 3 swap, all members in good standing are welcome to join in. USA only.

For this swap, you will journal at least one page a day for the month of July. You are welcome to fill out several pages a day if you wish, but you should write at least a little every day of the month of July.

You will start your journal on July 1 and complete it on July 31. This journal is sender's choice If you are a junk jounaler, a magpie journaler, a bullet journaler, Listographia journal keeper, or a smash book-er, please feel free to add those aspects of your life to this journal. Maybe your partner will learn something new to try! :)
You do not have to write an entry each day, but you do need to add to it. If you're not sure what to add, here are some ideas, but this is not a requirement - just to get the ideas flowing!:

If you go out to eat, feel free to add the receipt or a menu for the day, if you see a movie or show, you can attach the ticket stub. If you're a reader (like me!) add information about what you are currently reading, or add information about a swap you recently participated in. Add a list from a Listographia book - it's up to you! Make sure all the pages of the journal are attached, and any items to add to the pages are secured and won't fall out. Keep it neat, but it doesn't have to be only written entries. If your children came home with an partially complete notebook from school, you can use that - just make sure there are at least 30 pages left for you to use. (I love to find new uses for all those odd leftover notebooks!)

Journal size and type is up to sender. Smallest size is 4x6. If you wish to type your entries, you may do that, then create a book to hold the pages, or attach them into a pre-made book. You may also create your own journal if you are crafty. This is your opportunity to explore your creativity and establish yourself with a Type 3 swap.

If you have questions or comments, please contact me. I will check profiles for rating and swaps, as well as your info, and will contact you via PM with questions or comments. Please respond to the PM if I send you one, or you may be banned from the swap.

You may get your journal ready before July 1st - get it ready to start. But you should not start the journal until July 1st.

On the inside cover - write the swap name and your swapper ID! Your swapper needs to know what swap this is and who you are to give you a rating!

If anyone is interested in an International version of this swap, please let me know. :)

**If your child/ren came home with partially used comp books or note books from school, you may use those! Get a little crafty, maybe dress it up. :)

I'm surprised there aren't more people signed up for this. I guess it's quality over quantity. We only want people who are into it.

USAFwife 06/22/2017 #

Yeah, I was surprised more didn't sign up. There are a few detailed journal swaps starting in July & maybe that's why? Also summer I guess. I'll probably do another one here in the group in Sept or Oct. Maybe that will be better? Or do you think I have the description wrong? @sparkjoy

I can't decide if I want to do this one or the postcard... lol

This is a fun idea!

SparkJoy 06/24/2017 #

I couldn't guess at why. The description got my attention.

SparkJoy 06/24/2017 #

I just thought of one reason, maybe newbies like me aren't checking the group swaps often. I hadn't realized I should be. I'm checking the 'Newest swaps' list every day though. I don;t know how big the swaps in this group usually are.

CarolineCreates22 06/24/2017 #

It's hard and intimidating to be a newbie here @sparkjoy :(

USAFwife 06/25/2017 #

I cant send out group messages. :( it is difficult to remember to check through all the groups. I forget often. :(

USAFwife 06/26/2017 #

@CarolineCreates22 - you may sign up for both! :) I'm not sure if there are fewer sign ups because people are busier in the summer (I'm the opposite of most people, summer is my 'down time' most often.) - or if they aren't seeing the swaps.
If it's a case of not having time right now, it would help to know that, so I would know if I should do this again in a few months. Thoughts?

SparkJoy 06/27/2017 #

I'm busier in the summer but also more energetic. I don't know if I will do it again or not. Maybe :)
