Journal Swap... begins tomorrow!

Tomorrow's the big day, when we start our Journal Swap.

Is everybody ready?

I created my journal using materials from other Etsy stores. I showed the covers earlier in the month, using Patch's Thai lotto cards. I thought Linda would appreciate my patchwork design.

Then I found the cutest pendant in the shop of PendantLicious that I couldn't pass
up. I'm using it for my "beadmarker," something I've started including in all my journals and notebooks. It's a little twist on the bookmarker theme, and makes the journal mo
re personal.


And I glued in the haiku I wrote, on the inside cover, earlier in the week. I think the people who follow my swapmate's blog (Pruitt Handicrafts) may understand what this is all about.






What I'm thinking is to set aside a time in the day, to write in my journal, and then if it's relevant to others, include it in my blog. So during the month, you might see me mention the Journal Swap and some of the daily themes we're writing about.

Yes, I'm ready! It's a bought journal, but with hand made additions. Should I blog about it - or make it a surprise? Now, that's the big question.... LOL

This is so cool. Wish I dared to commit myself, but I'm afraid I'd just let my partner down. Sigh.

Maybe there'll be one when I'm not so overwhelmed? (Crossing my fingers!)

PS An I totally don't know how you do it.

The journal looks great! I have already started on Ruthie's and I am already thinking of the one for Sharla after tax season...
