I'm going to give more time for this round, because of all the holidays here in the US (at least!) during the winter months, and the fall/winter journal I'm hosting in this group too. Hopefully this will help your busy schedules. :) Also - another twist to this round! Keep reading ....

Thank you to @AmericanHeiress for allowing me to borrow her 'shared journal experience' idea to create this swap. :)

This will be a journal swap, BUT we are only sending pages to each other, not the whole journal. It will keep down costs, keep the time between shorter, and you won't loose your journal! Sounds good, right? I hope so! You can join as many as you wish.

You may want to have a binder or folder to collect your pages in, but you will NOT be sending it out. It's just going to be a place to collect your pages.

You may type your entries or hand write them, but be sure they are standard computer page size, (8.5 x 11"/ A4) so they will fit in everyone's binder or folder. Please leave room on the left edge and the top of the page in case your partner wishes to punch holes in the page to add to a binder. :) Entries should, of course be neat and clearly written or typed. (You may use the back of the first page, as long as your ink doesn't bleed through. Pages may be neatly folded and mailed in a standard size envelope.)

For each round you will send 4 pages (minimum) if you wish to write more, please do, but 4 page is the minimum: (Note: adding a page to the past round requirements)

Page 1 will be a short biography of you, about 1 page long, but it can be longer. Whatever you choose to share. (Note: If you are partnered up with someone you have previously sent to, you may skip the full bio and list other information about yourself, photos of yourself, a few 'top 10' type lists, etc. You don't have to write another full bio.)

Page 2 will be a journal entry of your day, about 1 page long, again whatever you wish to share. If you wish to take more than a page, that is fine.

Page 3 will be a journal prompt reply. You may choose from ONE of these topics:

What holidays do you observe or celebrate? What do you usually do for holidays? Do you have a favorite? Why?

You get 3 wishes from a magic genie - what do you wish for? Why?

It's nearing the end of the year - reflect on the past 12 months. Thoughts of the events? What went as you hoped? What would you like to change for the coming year?

Do you make new years resolutions? If so, do you keep them? Why or why not?

Did you learn any new crafts this year? Have you heard of anything you wish to try out next year?

Page 4: MAGPIE a page (at least). It can be a pocket scavenger idea like the Keri Smith book - items you collect over the day - a themed magpie page, total randomness - anything goes. (If a wrapper, etc, is not in English, you do not "have to" translate it for your partner, but you may if you wish.) Add bits of holiday wrapping if you wish, tags from items you buy, or create a photo collage, or come up with something totally new and unique.

You will send those 4 items to your swap-bot partner. :) If you get all 4, you rate them a 5. :) Hearts, of course, are up to you.

This swap will be International, and you will have 1 partner.

Sound good? Any questions, concerns, comments? Please PM me.
