Hello all! Welcome to the Journal Swap!

Here's how this swap works. Get a journal and fill it out over a month. You can make a journal or do a junk journal. I do not have a journal size/type requirement. Use your best judgment that you can send a nice and journal that is worth your partner's time. However, your journal must be larger than a pocket journal (a journal that can fit in your back pocket).

You can do whatever you want in your journal, just make sure you fill it with stories, journal entries, collages, art, recipes, whatever you want. Your goal should be to fill a page/pages every day. Do not join this swap unless you can commit to at least doing an entry every day. We all know life happens so if you miss a day just make it up. Do not send a journal you have previously made. The goal is to work on this journal every day throughout the month. Don't join if you can not commit.

Also, depending on the size of your journal, you may have unused pages at the end. That is fine as long as you've done your daily page/entry. Some journals have more pages than you will need.

IMPORTANT: Each entry should be something of substance. Several stickers or a few sentences do not count. Please put some thought and work into this so that your partner receives something that they will enjoy.

This journal will start on October 1st and end on October 31st. So you should fill up the journal throughout the month and mail it by November 8th.

Requirements to Participate:

-No 3 or 1 rating within the last 6 months. (If you would like to be considered please message me with details on a low rating.)

-You must have participated in at least 5 other type 3 swaps.

-No previous flakers.

When you receive your journal, rate it on how well it is filled out, not necessarily if what is in it is completely tailored to your tastes. It is the creator's choice of what they include in their journal.

DO NOT FLAKE ON YOUR PARTNER! This is not a swap I can angel, so please commit yourself to doing this fully if you sign up. If something does happen and you are unable to finish or have a chunk of time missing, be prepared to send what you have and get in touch with your partner to work it out. Please let me know as well.

Any questions, message me!

Is there a minimum amount of entries since some might have more pages than others?

aligurl75 06/23/2021 #

Yes that is a good question!! I once got a journal that literally had 30 pages and half of them were sticker slaps and the other half only 2 sentences. :(

@honeyblossom You must do an entry a day. So 30 to 31 depending on the month. Some journals have more pages than 30 so those will go unused, which is fine.

I would really like to do this one, but I am relatively new to the site and don't have any Type 3 swaps yet.... mainly because I haven't found any that strike my interest. Any change on making an exception to be included?

@Erasernut Please join. I will allow it.
