Lately I've joined quite a few drawing swaps as well as sharing your day or thoughts etc kind of swaps so I wanted to bring the 2 together.

"My Life in a Month"- August Edition This is the second time trying this swap and done second monthly.

Yes it will be International, as being from Australia myself practically 99% goes international for me.


Option 1: Get a 60-75page notebook 60 pages will work if you feel you won't write more than a page (page and a half max) as other page or half if you write over is for your little art. 70/75 page gives you extra if your daily story will be more than a page or you want to share quotes, recipes, poems etc with your story and artwork. Size you choose to use is up to you as.a.sender as long as the notebook is readable. -Fill it out over a month. Everyday you can state what you did in your day, something that happened, a book you are enjoying, maybe a new recipe you tried or just want to share. Maybe you have past memories on this day. Even if your day was a "bust", just state nothing happened and maybe share a quote or a poem, or if you are reading- a part in the book you enjoyed, something you are watching on Netflix or YouTube or any other place. Choice is varied and up to you. It's your Life in a Month, Therefore your story to tell. - Page 2 is for your little artwork of your choice. You don't need to be an artist (I'm definitely not), it's just a little fun to share something. It can be a drawing, a collage, a little painting, some sticker flakes you want to pretty the pages with, mixed media, or fancy writing art. Again so many endless choices -Your goal should be to fill minimum of a page daily.

PLEASE!!! 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. (I know that could possibly be me with a 17MONTH old and building our own home) -The goal is to work on this notebook/ monthly entry every day throughout the month but have fun too.

If you choose the extra pages writing book and have blank pages at the back, that is fine as long as you've done your daily page/entry. You can leave them blank or do anything you want.

Completed months: • June 2024 • August 2024- current
