What’s a magpie journal? What’s a magpie?

magpie adjective Definition of magpie

1 : collected indiscriminately : MISCELLANEOUS magpie compilations of unrelated tidbits β€” Helen R. Cross

2 : given to indiscriminate collecting : ACQUISITIVE what possible magpie instinct had impelled me to retain them β€” S. J. Perelman

I like mini pocket journals;

  • So smallest should be size 3x5

  • Largest could be 5 1/2 by 8 1/2.

Easy to fit in an envelope.

So .... get a piece of cardboard from any food item ... or a greeting card or even card stock.

Get 4 pieces of paper ... when folded in half would create 1-16 pages.

Staple them in the middle or hand sew them in, to create your booklet.

Fill them with random stuff. No method to your collecting madness.

Fill each page up as much as you can.

If your cover cardboard is plain please decorate it.

This is not based on profile likes or dislikes.. so get started.

*** please NO politics and NO religion****

Handwriting is ok If it’s a recipe or a poem.

Please mix things up a bit to make it random and fun.

Please rate your partner a 5 if you receive it. A 5 heart if they went all out.

Sorry but I can not angel this swap.

Yes. Just fill up your little book with random things. No theme really required. There have been other magpie journal swaps from other people in the past but they require an entire notebook. I prefer mini books because you get to create and not feel overwhelmed. It’s just a random little book filled with all kinds of things... receipts, stickers, recipes, magazine pics, a drawing, food label ... etc.. whatever fits ...
