New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on the last page so it can be returned to you when it is full. Keep in mind international shipping, please make the journal FLAT and LIGHT - no bulky ring binding or objects glued to the cover.

This book is going to be used for MIXED MEDIA so please make sure that your book is made of a sturdy paper that can hold up to some beating.

You can decorate the first spread of pages (please use a previous swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Rating is set at 4.97. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk: unexplained 1s or 3s in the last 6 months, anyone who hasn’t been active for the last 3 months, No newbies (anyone on swap-bot less than 6 months).

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (R39 theme was: Inspired by. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the Inspired by prompt).

When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread (one left side and one right side) based on the prompt given. Don't forget to add your username, date and country to your layout somewhere. You will then hold on to the book until the next partner is assigned and send it to them.

When the book is full you will need to return the book back to it's original owner. Please contact ME if you fill the last spread in a journal.

PROMPT: Paris! Your favorite french pastry, iconic images of Paris, fashion from Paris, a book or movie set in Paris - let this beautiful city inspire you! Remember: this prompt will go in the book you RECEIVE this round!! Don't like the current theme? use an old one that's not in the book yet!

Rating: if you receive a book from your partner with one full spread decorated (one left side, one right side) in a reasonable amount of time, please rate a 5. Only rate a 1 if you did not receive anything.

Please comment below with the journal owner's name/ID. I keep track of the journals, but confirmation (for me and the owner) is always nice :) Thanks!

WoodlandBanshee 01/ 6/2019 #

Hello everyone. I am curious, do you know how often the books get back to the original maker? I have joined these (not here on swap-bot) before and my journals have never come back to me. I am super keen, but hesitant to get a new one going.

gothbarbie 01/ 6/2019 #

@WoodlandBanshee - hello there - thanks for your interest in this swap series. We have a really great group participating and I'd say 90% of swappers get their own journal back. There are a few here and there that have been lost in the mail or ended up with a swapper who went MIA but I make sure Angel journals are created and circulated to replace those gone missing. I hope that helps!
