Not sure if this has already been done but to me this idea sounds fun.

I want to start a swap series, one that people join and continue joining the subsequent swaps in the series.

To start, find an exercise book. You know the type you write in at school.

The first person starting the book will decorate the cover however they choose, wallpaper, wrapping paper, anything you like.

Inside the front cover write your name, address (so the book is returned when it is full) swap name and your swap-bot name.

On a page or 2 write abit about your day, you location, something about the weather. You may decorate the page if you wish. Add a photo, a drawing if you wish and tape in with washi or staple. Use only pens that do not bleed onto the next page please. Don't forget to date your entry. You may add something separate for your partner if you wish, a pen pal intro letter or something else related to their likes, but you don't have to.

When you are done with your page send the book onto your partner.

That partner will then wait for the next swap in this series and fill out their page(s) and send on to their partner and so on.

Once the book is full the last person to write in the book will send it to the owner of the book, and start a new book.

The whole process then starts again.

At the end when your book is returned to you, you will have a book full of stories from around the world.

Please allow plenty of time to receive and send the book. This swap will take commitment to subsequent swaps in this series. If you don't plan on continuing with later swaps please don't join. I'm sorry but this is supposed to be fun. I enjoy hearing from different people around the world 😊 as I'm sure many others do too.

I plan to do one of these every month so there should be plenty of time to send and receive. Hopefully none of these books get lost on their journey.

Newbies are welcome to join this swap with a filled out profile (we all had to start somewhere)

Any questions please message me.

Hello! I I do not understand. Everyone should make their own notebook? Or you make a notebook?

@KiraRo I believe everyone makes their own notebook and sends it to their partner.

LauRad83 11/25/2018 #

as this is the first round, you'll all start off a note book and send it to your partner.

that partner will keep the book until the next round, when the next round starts they will fill out their page/s and sent it to their partner and so on. Newcomers in the following rounds will start a new book.

the last person to fill out your book will send it back to you as well as start a new book to send to their partner and the process starts again.

Are there dimensions for the “exercise” notebook you are talking about? I am not familiar with the term. Thanks!
